Not Just Painting Over The Problem
When it comes to painting the exterior of your home, you should anticipate the need for some carpentry work. In fact, about 85% of the homes we paint need some sort of carpentry repairs prior to painting. Simply painting over the rotten wood may look fine in the short term, but it’s similar to repainting a car that has rusting going on. The paint will fail and, more importantly, the underlying problems will continue to worsen.
Painting over the problem is just one of the many common issues with hiring a painting company!

Common Carpentry Fixes
When we say about 85% of the homes we paint have some carpentry needs, we’re not talking about ripping down the entire home and starting over! Some of the common carpentry spots that need to be addressed are:
- Siding, particularly along rooflines and ground level where snow builds up.
- Trim such as window and door casings.
- Window sills
While there may be other issues, these are usually at the top of our list of what to look at when we come to your home to discuss your project!
