⏩ What Prep Work Happens on a Paint Project?

One of the biggest questions we always get asked is about how we prepare your home for painting. What makes us different than other painters? Our goal is to make sure your paint lasts for years and years to come. Here’s a few things you can expect from our superior staff here at Pinon Painting:
We inspect surfaces thoroughly.

We live in a place where the ultraviolet rays are intense! The UV rays do a pretty good job on deteriorating exterior paint, especially if it wasn’t properly protected to begin with. Before any job, our guys inspect the surface of your home thoroughly. We’re looking for cracks, peeling, bubbling, and any other problem areas we can find. We won’t ever just cover it up – we make sure we fix the issue before painting over it.

Spray detergent and power wash your home.

We always need a clean surface before adding paint to your home. We’ll spray an extra-strength detergent on your home to get the years of buildup and residue off, then give your home a nice, thorough rinse to make sure the surface is clean and ready to take the paint we put on!

We use top-grade exterior paints.

Since our goal is to make sure you get the most out of your paint, we always make sure we use top-quality paints. Though we’ll provide you with mid-grade to top-grade paints, we will always recommend to spend the extra money to make sure you’re getting the biggest bang for your buck.

We place a lot of emphasis on the longevity of your paint. We like to make sure it lasts you for years to come, and spend more time into ensuring we do so. We are not typically a good value for homeowners looking to sell their home in a couple years. However, we’re a great option for those looking to stay in their house for a few years. If you’ve got questions about your project, don’t hesitate to give us a call! We’re always happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.

This is the second time we used Pinon and both times the finished work was excellent. You did what you said you would do (quality work). Your crew was very efficient and easy to communicate with.
