During the process of painting, we may find dry rotted wood on your home. If we do, we will point it out to you and recommend the best way to proceed. Our painting crews are usually able to make repairs, but we will refer you to a carpenter if needed.  

The timing depends on the condition of your paint surfaces, type of work required, size of the project and weather conditions. Once our team has assessed your needs, we will let you know how much time we think will be required to complete your project.  

All paints, varnishes, and solvents contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Exposure to VOCs can trigger asthma attacks, respiratory problems, eye irritation, nausea, or dizziness. Because of these health concerns, a number of paint manufacturers have introduced Low or 0 VOC paint alternatives. We are happy to provide Low VOC or 0 VOC options for your project.
