I hired them to fix the wood rot and repaint the house. They were fast and efficient, making adjustments as needed, and even moved a little debris I had around the house (fallen fence pieces from wind) and trimmed back trees that were in the way. The paint job looks amazing as well, and the pricing was very reasonable. Next time I need work done, they are the first ones I'm calling. Thanks!

It’s important to think about the accents in and around your home, such as furniture, decorations, patio pieces, and more. Think about your front entry door, as this will be the focal point of your exterior. You can paint the inside and the outside of your front door indifferent colors. However, it is important to match it with the borders seen from either the inside or the outside. These features may seem small and insignificant on their own, but together they will either make or break the entire aesthetic of your home.
This post couldn’t come at a better time! We are about to reprint our lounge after our toddler decided to do little Picasso crayon drawings on the walls, and discovering that the painter and decorator used the cheapest paint, it comes off with even a baby wipe! My top tip would be to use the most expensive paint you can afford, the cheap stuff just doesn’t hold up to day to day life with mucky little toddlers, this time I’m getting the Scrub proof paint!

"Josh was referred to me to paint the interior of my kitchen and living room. I was immediately surprised by his professionalism. He was always prompt, professional, very enjoyable to work with and did a wonderful job. Josh was always concerned that I was happy and he was always accommodating. I was so impressed with his work that I have accelerated, the time schedule, for a large painting job I have planned. I look forward to using his firm again and recommending him to others. I am very pleased with his work. Thank you Josh!!"

Also in the winter months we start painting on the East side, following the sun, making sure exterior paint dries properly before the sun goes down.
