Guilford Savings Bank Review, Guilford Ct

I have been a painting contractor in Guilford Ct for many years, and I am familiar with a lot of the local businesses here in Guilford Ct.  As a business owner I would like to share my opinion about our local bank here, Guilford Savings Bank, and this is why I wrote this article Guilford Savings Bank Review, Guilford Ct 

Guilford Savings Bank, Guilford Ct has been serving our town for 138 years!  They have branched out to other towns such as Old Saybrook Ct, Madison Ct, Branford Ct.  I have been a personal and business customer for over 9 years.  I used to bank at the large nationwide banks and although I had all kinds of great access and all the bells and whistles technology could provide to my account through my laptop, ipad and iphone, when there was a problem or I needed personal attention the big bank was sorely lacking.

I remember one christmas when my wife and I went to our large big nationwide bank to withdraw cash for our christmas shopping that day and found that our deposit we made two days earlier was missing!  Not only was it missing, it wasn’t even recorded at all!  Luckily my wife had her deposit slip in her wallet to prove the transaction took place, but unfortunately we had no access to that money until a different department that was not even in our state could look into it, which didn’t happen and get resolved for another three business days!

Last year, I had a situation where my checking account was hacked into through my visa debit card, over 338.00 dollars was taken!  I noticed this on a saturday!  I called the bank and not only did I get a person, it was resolved right away!

I am writing this article Guilford Savings Bank Review, Guilford Ct to share this information with the public because as a business owner and a private customer, I know the value of a good local bank. When I walk in the bank I am greeted by everyone!  They know my first name!  I am taken care of quickly, there are always a lot of tellers ready and waiting!  If you have a problem or issue, their main goal is to make sure you are happy with the end result.

If you have any questions or would like to talk to me about this article, please feel free to contact me, my email, phone and website are below.  Hope this article is helpful!

I highly recommend Guilford Savings Bank, Guilford Ct

HOW TO CHOOSE EXTERIOR PAINT COLOR FOR YOUR HOME Madison Ct

The exterior color of your home is an expression of your personal style! Painting or staining your home is also the best way to protect your siding and trim from the elements.   How long a paint or stain job can protect your home totally depends on the quality of materials and how the materials are applied to the siding and trim.  We wrote this article HOW TO CHOOSE EXTERIOR PAINT COLOR FOR YOUR HOME Madison Ct  to help you with this.

There are some great LOW-VOC exterior stains and paints now available using new technology that stands the test of time and elements better then the brands that have been on the market for years! There is Aura exterior paint, Arborcoat waterborne exterior stain to name a few.

A few things to consider when picking an outside color:

1. Your driveway, the chimney and the roof should play a role in deciding a color. If you choose a color that has similar shades in the roof, chimney and driveway, it will add harmony to the entire property, and also give a feeling of spaciousness.

2. If you have stone work on the house or a stone fence, using a color that blends with the stone work will give a sense on continuity and beauty.

3. If your home is in the west coast where there are a lot of terra-cotta roofs, picking a soft neutral color will help even out the intense color of the terra-cotta and bring more visual harmony to the entire look and a softness.

4. If you belong in a community or houses that are close together, you might consider choosing a color palate that is compatible with the homes in your neighborhood.  The color does not need to be the same, just a color that goes with the general scheme in your area.

5.  Landscaping also has an impact on the overall look.  If you have a brilliant display of colors around the yard, you might go with a soft color to offset the beautiful intensity of the garden, or if you have a subdued garden, you can choose a louder house color!

6. I would encourage you to choose a white or very very light color for the trim.  Choosing a trim color that is different from the siding color can be tricky.  It can make your home look smaller and also force your eyes to just see the trim and not the entire home.

7. Use the doors as another way to add a pop of color to your home. It’s not such a big amount of color that it overtakes your home, it’s just enough to add a little fun and kick!

If you are meeting with a contractor, they should be able to give helpful tips.  It’s also a good idea to go to your local paint center and get a bunch of color choices and put them on the house so you can see the color throughout the day as the light changes.

How To Get A Painting Estimate Guilford CT

dave's photo

When I do a search I will enter my town name and a few towns that are near me so that I get a contractor that is based within thirty minutes from my town, I prefer someone local.

When you start going through the list, pick a contractor in the top half of the first page. Why? This usually is a indication that they are searched out a lot and are more established.  It’s very helpful if they have a website, it shows a comittment to the consumer to disclose as much information about them as possible.

When you call or email the contractor, pay close attention to how long it takes for them to answer you, it should take no longer then 24 hours!  The best response is a same day response!This is an indicator to how fast they will respond when you hire them!

Make sure they have the following information:

1. A Home Improvement Contractor license by the State of Ct (this is mandatory)

2. All painting contractors must have a Lead License! They should have a certificate and Lead      License number

3. Proof of Insurance

4. References

After they meet with you make sure you receive a written estimate within three business days. Make sure on the estimate it outlines how many coats of paint, are dark colors included, are finishes like Eggshell included, what is extra, how long will the job take, when can they start?

These are important questions and everything should be in writing!

WHY USE NON-TOXIC PAINTS?

First, the bad news:
Indoor air is three times more polluted than outdoor air!  According to the EPA our indoor air is listed as one of the top 5 hazards to our health!  A good start to reduce the level of pollution in our indoor air is the type of paint that you have on your walls, doors and trim.
Painting products and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution!   After you have painted your home, the paints and the finishes continue to release low level toxic emissions into your breathing air for years after the application!  The source of these toxins is VOC’s (Variety of volitile organic compounds) which until recently were essential to the performance of paint.
Now, the good news!
Painting manufactures have caught on and there are many brands out there that offer No Voc based paint.
Benjamin Moore has Pristine Eco Spec and Sherwin Williams has Harmony. These are just a few, if you have a favorite paint brand that you are used to using, chances are they offer a No Voc line of paint and finishes!  These brands are high quality, better for your health and cost effective!
Remember to open a few windows and doors at the end of the day if you have been painting, even for a few minutes will help freshen the air!

Help your environment and budget with green, eco-friendly painting

Want a healthier home, lower utility bills and a cleaner planet?  Then consider using paints that meet today’s higher standards for environmental performance, lasting beauty and long-term value.  Fact is, consumers looking to save money and the environment have more choices than ever before.  Here’s how to take advantage of more sensible options for your next painting project right now:

Choose a Low-VOC Paint

All paints contain some level of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), but paints with higher levels can trigger asthmatic or allergic reactions, and even contribute to air pollution.  Because they release fewer toxins into the air during the drying process, low-VOC paints are considered safer to people and less harmful to the environment.

Green Seal, a non-profit environmental standards organization, makes it easy to identify less toxic paints that also have great coverage and durability.  Visit www.greenseal.org/standards/paints.htm to view their paint evaluation criteria, or let Coastline Painters help you select a safe paint that meets your decorating needs.

Choose Recycled, Reblended or Surplus Paints

Consumers looking to reduce costs and environmental impact may want to consider commercially produced recycled content paint, which contains 50-80% recycled content.  It’s filtered, mixed, sorted and tested to ensure consistent quality, and it’s sometimes available direct from the supplier at no cost.  (Keep in mind, however, that it may need to be special-ordered, and is usually limited to earth tones).

Moreover, many municipalities create reblended paints from leftover paints brought to their household hazardous waste facilities.  While color palettes are limited, the paint is typically of reasonable quality and available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.  Although this may not fit clients with more exacting needs, it is a more budget-conscious solution.

Choose the Right Paint Color and Quality

It’s true: The right paint color can actually lower your electricity bill.  Lighter colors reduce your need for artificial light, by bouncing natural light from windows and fixtures throughout your room.  Moreover, choosing a high-quality paint that comes with a performance warranty will reduce your need for costly additional coats and potentially hazardous removal down the line.

Selecting the right paint doesn’t have to break the bank or harm the planet.  Contact Coastline Painters for a free quote to see how we can help you make better choices for your next painting project.
