Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct

Hi everyone!  We get a lot of calls asking if we do window glazing, and that’s why we created this blog Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct. Yes, we do!

Window glazing is kind of a lost art, but it is an art and takes know how and skill!  Glazing compound holds the window in place (especially older windows) and keeps weather out!

Basically you remove the old glazing compound which can get hard as a rock, crack and have pieces fall out.  Then you remove old putty.  There is a process to the removal and re-installation of the new glazing compound and putty.  So, I hope this article Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct helped!

We have been painting in Branford Ct for over 37 years! We also cover Guilford Ct, Madison Ct and all the way up the shoreline!

If you have any questions at all on how this process works, please call us! We are very happy to talk to you and give you all the information you need!  Even if you don’t plan on using our company for your painting needs, please call, we will guide you through the process!dave's photo

PAINTING KITCHEN CABINETS, PAINTERS IN GUILFORD CT

Painting your kitchen cabinets is a great way to give the entire kitchen a fresh, brand new look without breaking the bank! This is why we posted this article PAINTING KITCHEN CABINETS, PAINTERS IN GUILFORD CT to give you some tips about it.

First thing is to clean the cabinets inside and out using a gentle solution like TSP.  You want to make sure there is no dirt, dust and grease on the cabinets.  Let them dry out thoroughly.

Next, you want to protect areas that are not getting painted, so tape some Rosin paper over the counter tops and floor.  You can also tape plastic sheeting over the back splashes and windows if needed.   You will also need a work table for  the doors, drawers and shelves.

Remove the cabinets from the  frames, remove all the hardware.  Put hardware in safe place.  Place the cabinet doors on your work table.  Note:  Be sure to have a window or crack a door in the kitchen to allow fresh outside air inside.

Now, scrub all the face frames, the drawer fronts, doors and shelves with an abrasive pad that has liquid de-glosser on it.  Make sure that you have papers underneath to catch any extra liquid that will drip.  Before it dries, wipe away the residue with a clean de-glosser dampened rage.

If you are moving where the hardware is going to be put back on the doors and drawers, be sure to fill the holes with a two part polyester wood or autobody filler. It dries in pretty quick so make small batches of it. After it dries, you will need to scrape off any excess and then gently sand it so it’s flush with the wood surface.   Next sand all the surfaces using a 100 grit paper.  Make sure to dust off the dust, you can also use a tack cloth.

Choose a high quality primer, such as a oil based primer, they are good for maple, cherry or man made materials.  Use a good quality nylon-polyester brush.  Give it a good day to dry.  Sand the surfaces again using a orbit sander, 220 grit paper. It should be very smooth when you are done.

Next, you want to caulk any open seams using latex caulk.  After applying the caulk, smooth the seam with  a damp finger.  Fill any scratches, dents or dings using a vinyl spackle and smooth it flat with a putty knife.   After it dries, sand again.  Vacuum and clean all surfaces.

Working from top to bottom start painting across the grain.  Sand all the surfaces after the first coat dries with a 280 grit paper.  Vacuum and clean again.  Use a brand new brush for the final coat.  When it dries, you can hang everything back up!

How To Find Paint Supplies Guilford Ct

With so many different brands and stores carrying paint supplies it can be overwhelming trying to find the perfect store that offers a good variety at a great value, so we created this article  “How To Find Paint Supplies Guilford Ct” to help with that.

We have been painting contractors for 37 years and have tried practically everything!  If you live in the Connecticut area, I would suggest you try Rings End, they have many locations spread out over Connecticut. Why?  I have been dealing with them for over six years and just to start, the customer service is outstanding!  They also offer the Benjamin Moore line.  The Benjamin Moore line offers the widest variety of paints from the highest quality to contractors grade, and I have to tell you that all the lines are fantastic!

Coronado is one of their newer lines and its a little more economical and high quality!  If you would like a no VOC paint, which I highly reccomend,  try Natura, it’s great!

If you don’t live in the Connecticut area and can’t get to a Rings End, then I suggest locating the largest paint chain in your state and starting there.  The big box retailers like Home Depot do have a nice paint department, but you will not get the same customer service and advice that you will from a smaller and well stocked paint store that only sells paint!

I hope that this article “How To Find Paint Supplies Guilford Ct” was helpful!  Please feel free to call or email us with any questions you may have or for advice on products, we are happy to help you!  Of course if you live in the Connecticut area and would like us to come out to meet with you for a free professional evaluation and estimate of your painting needs we are happy to do so!

Thank you!

Boost Your Home’s Value and Verve with Coastline Carpentry

carpenter in new haven county5 Simple architectural enhancements that pay off

What’s the secret to transforming cookie-cutter into your custom style?  When it comes to your home, light carpentry that adds built-in architectural details make all the difference.  To turn drab into dazzling – and boost your home’s value in the process – try adding one of these exciting accents:

  1. Window Seats. Window seats are beautiful architectural features, and add immense style, comfort, and value to your home.  Maximize your storage potential by creating a hinged bench seat, or consider building storage cubbies beneath.  Pull it together with cushions that match your room’s décor.
  2. Media Shelving. Utilize awkward spaces (and add to the charm of your home) by adding shelves under stair cases, around landings, next to fireplaces, or even under kitchen cabinets.  Such spaces are perfect for organizing and storing books, DVDs, cds, mobile device charging stations and all the necessities of today’s digital age.
  3. Crown Moulding. Add a classic dimension of elegance and warmth to any room with crown moulding.  But DIYers beware: Installing crown moulding can be tricky, particularly when it comes to the cornices.  As always, simple is better.
  4. Bead Board. Bead board is a mainstay in many old houses, lending a classic yet casual look to cabinets, ceilings and decorative wall panels.  With an informal flair, bead board can help you incorporate relaxed cottage styling into any decor.
  5. Flower Boxes. Give your home a floral facelift with a fun flower box!  Painted to match your home’s exterior (or the blooms within), built-in flower boxes will give your home a decorative seasonal boost the whole year through.
