Painter Westbrook Ct, Tips On How To Find Exterior or Interior House Painter

Finding a good house painter shouldn’t be difficult, there are a few things to look for, so we created this blog “Painter Westbrook Ct, Tips On How To Find Exterior or Interior House Painter” 

Finding a interior and exterior house painter Westbrook Ct is as easy as doing the following:

First, check to make sure that the interior and exterior painting  contractor is licensed in the State of Ct and that the license is current and in good standing. Just go to Department of Consumer Protection.

Second, take note of how fast they call you back, how fast they schedule the estimate and if they follow up with a written estimate giving details on prep work, kind of materials being used, how long the job will take.  How you are treated in this process will most likely carry over to how they treat you during the job.

I hope this is useful for you, and as always, please call with any further questions or professional advice you may need! We are happy to help! We hope that when  you search for interior or exterior painters in Branford, Guilford or Madison Ct or anywhere else, that you can use these guidelines!

How A Professional Painter Does Preparation, Madison Ct

Hi I’m David Moffitt, I’ve been a painting contractor for over 37 years and I have learned that the most important aspect of your paint job is the preparation!  I know that this is a no-brainer, but there is a lot to it!

You need to really check the surfaces before you paint them, check for rotted wood, moisture areas, cracks, holes, uneven surfaces.  Once you outline the areas that need attention, you need to take your time and know how to properly fix these issues.  It does no good to buy the highest quality paint if it’s not going to be applied to a properly prepared surface!  That is why I created this blog ” How a Professional Painter Does Preparation, Madison Ct.http://youtu.be/N2_BifV1c4w?list=UUPqhZXm3tlefzuw_-YJCAPw

Please feel free to call us for a professional estimate/evaluation of your home!  I am happy to walk the job with you and explain things I see and how to fix it!  If you are doing the job yourself, please call if you would like my advice, I am happy to give it!

College Pro Breaking The Law, Guilford Ct

I’m not trying to pick on College Pro painters, but it seems to me that that the law should apply to everyone.  As I drive around my home town and other local towns in my area, I see the College Pro signs just plunked down anywhere they please. This is against the law.  You are not allowed to put a company sign on any property that you are not contracted for work there.

I have been painting in this area for over 35 years and I know many other local painting contractors that I respect and they would never do this and my company doesn’t either!  We follow our local town laws and respect them.

It’s a cheap illegal way to do business, which is the bottom line for College Pro Painters.

Here is my video with a photo of an illegally placed sign on town property:

Please feel free to call me with any painting questions, we are happy to help you!

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!
