Painting


      Let Colorado home renewal give your home or business a face lift with top quality Sherwin-Williams paint.

     We use beautiful Duration Interior and Exterior Acrylic Latex, formulated with PermaLast® technology and infused with advanced acrylic co-polymers for long-lasting performance. Duration is self-priming and provides a mildew-resistance coating. It requires just one coat for repaints and two coats for new work so the painting jobs get done more quickly. (Note: Other paints available upon request.)

     Likewise, if you need your log home or deck stained, we use Sherwin-William stains, highly recognized in the industry for their beauty and durability.

      We start by power-washing and rinsing the exterior of the buildings to be painted. This is done by first applying a soap and bleach mix to loosen any dirt or oils on the surface and kill mold and mildew. Contrary to popular belief, the goal is not to blast away loose paint, but to gently remove dirt and contaminants. Excessive pressure will damage the siding and force water deep inside the wood grain causing future problems. Without this step there may be areas where the paint does not adhere properly to the siding

      Once the exteriors are dry (usually in a day or two), the most time-consuming part of the process begins. All loose paint and caulk is removed by scraping, brushing, and sanding. With all loose material removed, we will then repair or replace any damaged wood. Small cracks and holes can be filled, larger defects will require new wood or siding.

      With all defects in the siding and trim corrected, the house is caulked. Windows and doors are caulked, eaves and soffits are sealed, trim is caulked and any siding with excessive gaps are also sealed. Caulking serves two purposes: first to seal the house from the weather by stopping drafts and potential leaks that can cause problems inside the house, and second, to seal the wood and trim so that unpainted areas on the inside are protected from water to prevent the wood from rotting from the inside out.


      With problems fixed and the house sealed, the house is almost ready to paint. Paint does not adhere very well to bare wood; therefore, primer is used to solve this problem. Primer contains a much higher concentration of the compounds that actually stick to the wood. Any exposed wood is primed, whether it is new wood, or wood exposed by scraping.

      When painting house exteriors, we generally spray the base color rather than brush it. The sprayer allows for smooth and even coverage with virtually no brush marks. Spraying will also tend to cover better in recessed areas such as cracks and tight corners. It also requires that we mask and tarp a lot more to ensure there are no problems caused by overspray.

      Once the base coat is applied, we go back and brush and roll on the trim color. This is almost as slow and tedious as the prep work, but it is this step that really makes a house beautiful. A well chosen trim color that compliments the base coat makes all the difference.

      With the trim painted, accent colors are then applied, if desired, to doors and other features to add that final touch that really brings out the beauty in your house and your own personal flair.

      It is amazing what a little paint and hard work can do!
