After two coats of semi-transparent deck stain.Exterior coatings not only beautify your home, but also protect the wood from damage caused by heat and moisture. Waiting too long to refinish your deck, trim, or cedar siding, can lead to rot and other problems.   
We use the best quality paints and stains from Sherwin Williams to increase the longevity of the finish. All surfaces are completely prepared before recoating, which includes scraping, pressure washing, sanding and priming where needed.
We provide exterior painting and staining service for house siding (wood, vinyl and aluminum), house trim, decks and fencing.
We use a paint sprayer for larger projects (siding, fencing, large decks with spindles). The sprayer is used for the purpose of faster application, followed by manually brushing and rolling the material into the wood. 
We provide spray painting service for window shutters (wood and vinyl). We remove the shutters, clean, spray them off-site, and return the following day to reinstall.
All work areas are carefully prepared with plastic and drop cloths for protection against paint and over-spray. Our service is primarily residential.

"Matt did a fantastic job painting the whole interior of our home. He always came on time and did a VERY neat job. He used paint that when dry, had no odor at all!

He was very trustworthy and we felt very secure leaving him in our home if we had to leave for appointments. His prices are fair and honest with no hidden charges or surprises on the final bill. You will be very satisified if you choose him for your painting jobs!
