Well, I am sure that you have noticed that the weather has definitely switched over into spring/summer mode. We have been having some beautiful days where it gets nice and warm and cools off at night. The summertime slots have been filling up very quickly this year and we are already booking into July. If you want to try to get your exterior paint project in before the end of the summer, give us a call.
Some of the projects that we have been working on recently are a tenant improvement drywall project, a residential drywall project, a few wallcovering projects, and some work at the military hospital doing drywall and interior painting.
We have been asked recently when painting existing interior trim, how to get a furniture type finish on it? It starts with the preparation work, first making sure that the trim is clean by washing it down with a grease cutting solution as necessary. Then, you will want to make sure that any dings, dents, nailholes and so on are properly spackled. Follow that up with a good, thorough sanding, wiping any dust off, and caulking any cracks. Finally, it is time to mask off any items not to be painted and to spray a factory finish on the trim. If you can't spray in your situation, it is important to brush and roll it in a way that leaves little to no evidence of the brush or roller. It helps not to overload your brush/roller, and to try and paint from a dry area onto an area wet with recently applied paint. Also, note that many furniture and high-end finished products have had multiple layers of finish, with more sanding between coats.
Finish and stain products should also be well thought-out before getting too far into the project; there are many stain and finish options, with a variety of sheens and colors. These can be chosen to contrast or blend with the surrounding walls, floor, and fixtures, giving a look of sophistication, simplicity, or otherwise. There is also a range of quality in finish and stain products. With such a large pool of choices, it is important not be too hasty in making a decision.
We would recommend giving us a call as soon as possible to get the highest quality exterior painting work in the local area! We look forward to hearing from you and thanks for checking in!
