FAQs

How do I know if I have lead paint in my home?2023-08-15T06:55:36-07:00

There’s really no way to tell just by looking at it. You can have a painter come in and assess the situation or purchase a lab test from your local hardware store to find out. In general, if your house was built before 1978, chances are it has lead paint in it.

How long will my exterior painting job last?2023-08-15T06:57:19-07:00

In general, exterior paint jobs last between five and 10 years. Stucco lasts the longest; wood expands and contracts with the weather, which loosens the paint sooner. We recommend not waiting until the paint is peeling off your home, as this will cost you more in preparation time and labor, especially if wood rot is present.

What is better: oil or latex paint?2023-08-15T06:55:57-07:00

Latex paints are more environmentally friendly than oil-based paints, which often give off fumes. Latex primers and finishes have come a long way over the years and are very durable. For example, a latex finish on an exterior painting job will last for many years and remain elastic, whereas oil-based paint dries to a hard and brittle film. Latex paint will move with the surface as it expands and contracts with weather.

Where does dirt accumulate most on interior paint jobs?2023-08-15T06:58:40-07:00

Interior paint gets dirty in many different ways, from hand prints around switches and knobs to splashes in kitchens and bathrooms. There are also chances for dirt when it comes to marks on hallways and corridors or when soot accumulates above electric lamps and other heat sources. When you remove dirt before it accumulates, this not only improves appearance, it reduces the risk of the dirt getting permanently embedded in the paint.

Are you certified to remove lead paint?2023-08-15T06:54:32-07:00
