- They only spray, which is faster but doesn’t fill in cracks.

We are experts in paint and will educate you on your options and in most cases we recommend the best paint available! Since most of the cost of painting your house is the labor, why not use the best product on the market? Because of our commitment to using quality products, we paint more houses in Boise with Sherwin Williams top of the line Duration paint than anybody else!
It is not uncommon for us to repaint houses after only 6 years because of the quality of the paint or because of poor preparation that so many homes receive. This is so unfortunate because there are paints available today that will last 15+ years when applied correctly by a professional Boise painter. Keep in mind, all colors fade over time to some degree and certain environmental factors such as sprinklers, lack of gutters, and siding failure can cause premature paint failure.
Our favorite and most frequently used paint is Sherwin Williams Duration. It’s a paint guaranteed not to fail for as long as you own your home! While many other paints claim a lifetime warranty and premium performance, only Sherwin Williams Duration offer the film thickness, resin quality and flexibility, and adhesion to be called a true lifetime product! Ask for this product if you want the best for your home!
We start each exterior repaint by washing the outside of your home with either low or high pressure depending on the characteristics of the siding.
Next, our painter will address all the areas on your house needing scraped, sanded, primed, and finally caulked. Typically, we re-caulk the facia, soffit, corners, windows and any other areas where the original caulking has failed including nail holes and around windows where applicable. We brush and roll your house with primer to create a good foundation for the top coat of paint to adhere to. This results in us often giving your home as many as 3 – 4 coats of paint!
After the home has been thoroughly cleaned and prepped, we apply 1 – 2 coats of high quality exterior paint depending on the condition of the siding and previous coating; however, we always apply the paint at the recommended film thickness to optimize the performance of the coating. This often includes back rolling surfaces as needed.
Back rolling and back brushing is a technique where the paint is applied to the surface with the sprayer, and then is brushed or rolled in order to help the paint penetrate the surface further. This is helpful on surfaces such as stucco, rough wood, concrete and siding with cracks and splits. Each home requires a little different approach to ensure that we give you a quality paint job that will last as long as possible!
After the body of your home is painted, we follow by brush and rolling all your trim, facia, door wraps, etc according to your color specifications. This often gives your trim an ADDITIONAL 1 – 2 coats of paint, which increases performance in that area even more!
Finally, we finish by spraying your gutters to match your trim with a fine finish tip to maintain the factory finish look of your gutters if you have chosen this option. We also offer a service of painting your front door a unique color with a specialty durable satin or semi gloss enamel using a fine finish tip that can give your house an extra pop of color.
Before our job is done we clean up after ourselves, do any final touch up that is needed, and do our best to leave your property cleaner than we found it!
