What are the Benefits of an Exterior House Painting Service?
There comes a time in every homeowner’s life when repainting the exterior of the house needs to be considered. Once the homeowner gets past the “should I repaint the house myself or should I hire a contractor” question, invariably, the “hire a contractor” option wins. And for good reason. Repainting an entire home is a huge endeavor requiring know-how, time, and tools beyond the paint itself. Often this will result in unforeseen added expenses and pitfalls that are better left unexplored. That is where the benefits of an exterior house painting service become evident.
Once that mental dilemma has been solved the “who to hire” question is next. There are lots of local painting services to choose from, ranging from one-man shows to well-established companies. Most of the time you will find that you are given a quick estimate and that estimated job costs can vary greatly.
If you are still unsure of the benefits of hiring an exterior painting service and how Universal Painting Contractors distinguish themselves from their competitors in the Fairfield/Vacaville/Vallejo areas and beyond read on.
1) We Start with a Precise Estimate
At UPC Paint, we take the time to meet with you at your premises to learn about your job requirements and consultation. We start with a walk-through and a thorough inspection of the exterior walls to identify areas that need repair or special attention. Many problems, such as dry rot, are not recognized by the layman’s eyes. So usually, when we point these areas out, the customer is surprised to learn of its existence. After the walk-through, we provide a written cost estimate and job start time. We have been around long enough to be able to pinpoint what it will take and how long it will take. Barring the unforeseen, the quoted price is what you will pay for. We do not quote cheap just to get the job and then keep demanding more for this and that.
2) Free Color Consultation
Choosing colors and quality paint types are crucial for a professional-looking finish. Often the color selection must conform with HOA requirements and match the surrounding environment. With UPC Paint, you can leave this to us as we are color experts and have good relationships with multiple paint suppliers. We will suggest a perfect color match and finish for your house, suggest an alternate color for trim that will hold up to all weather conditions in the Solano and Dixon Counties. You will be pleased with the outcome.
2) Expert Preparation
A good finish is dependent upon a thorough exterior wall preparation. You wouldn’t just want to paint over flaking paint, areas that have dry rot, mold, or uneven surfaces. Before painting can begin we have to power wash to remove dirt and grime, chip away flaking paint, make all necessary repairs, and smooth out finishes. Then we put up scaffolding and ladders minding your plants, put up barriers to protect windows, cover your plants, and whatever else needs protecting. We wouldn’t dream of slapping on a coat of paint before all the prep work is done.
3) Experienced Painters Only
As the saying goes: “it takes a village”. Our entire crew at UPC Paint has been with us for many years. They can tackle any exterior painting project, no matter how big or small or complex. Years of experience have taught them how to mask, chip, repair, and tackle all blemishes and paint in the most expedient manner. You might say, they operate like a well-oiled machinery, getting the job done in no time at all. They know every trick in the book to make your home look great. Plus, they are trained to do the job with minimal disruption to your normal daily activities.
4) 2 Coats of Paint
In order to get the best possible finish, we always apply 2 coats of paint. One coat will be rolled on and the other sprayed on. Only then can we be sure that every nook and cranny is covered with a new coat of paint for that even finish look.
5) Top Quality Service
We have set high standards for our team of professional exterior painters and we hold them accountable to it. Apart from providing expert prep work and the painting, they are also expected to mind plants and clean up at the end of each day and a thorough clean at the end of the job. Not only that, but we do also expect them to respond to customer questions and comments in a friendly, professional manner.
Exterior House Painting not just protects your home from the environments but also enhances its curb appeal. Exterior painting should be considered a part of home maintenance and done every 7-10 years.
