No Subcontractors! We're Not A Franchise!
Products and Materials
As we strive to exceed industry standards we set “Contractor Grade” products and materials aside. We don’t buy cheap to save a dollar. This means that the end result will withstand the harsh Texas elements, and the test of time. Know that the money you spend is going towards the end result you’re expecting.
Equipment and Technique
Anyone can put paint on a wall, but the methods, techniques, and equipment used determines the quality and longevity of the finish. We possess the high-end equipment needed to ensure a long lasting and durable finish. Industry standard Airless spray systems (not DIY sprayers found at Home Depot), proper ascending and descending equipment (for those hard to reach areas), and a developed and proven process that ensures the quality workmanship and result you’re expecting.
With height hazards come fall risks and without the proper equipment it can get dangerous fast. We don’t simply “make do” with ladders when scaffolding or roofing equipment is needed. We have every tool and piece of equipment needed for any scenario. If you hire someone without the proper equipment and coverage you may find yourself in an unpleasant position if that handyman or self-proclaimed painter falls and gets hurt on your property.

#1 Exterior Painting Company
These are a few of our basic steps for exterior preparation. Depending on your homes needs there may be other methods and techniques we implement to properly prepare any surfaces for the top-coat.
Clean all dirty areas with a detergent if needed. This kills mildew and removes the dirt on the surface. Cleaning is done with a power washer, by hand, or a combination of the two - whichever is more appropriate for your house.
Scrape loose paint. Loose paint must is removed with a scraper until a firm edge is reached. Sanding to all rough edges. We use a combination of power sanders (disk sanders, belt sanders) and/or hand sanding with 60-80 grit sandpaper. This may not leave the surface completely smooth but makes the rough edges less apparent. Be aware that we spend more time with the sanding of 1st floor areas and high profile sections than we do with 2nd and 3rd floor areas.
Application of caulk and other fillers to fill any cracks and holes on surfaces that would not otherwise be considered a defect in existing materials, or a repair of existing materials.
Prime bare wood with appropriate primer. All bare wood needs to be sealed and protected to ensure proper adhesion of top-coats.
