Recoating exterior wood helps protect it and prevent damage from heat and moisture. Waiting too long to recoat wood can lead to warping and rot. These problems can be avoided by having the wood professionally restained before the old finish completely wears away. 
We use quality paints and stain from Sherwin Williams for maximum durability. Our paints of choice include Duration and SuperPaint, and SuperDeck stain for decks. Exterior surfaces are completely prepared before recoating, which includes scraping, pressure washing, sanding and priming if 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), followed by brush and roller application to push the material into the wood. We always recommend a two coat application for outdoor projects. 
We provide spray painting service for window shutters (wood and vinyl). We remove the shutters for proper cleaning, spray them off-site and return the following day to reinstall them. 
All work areas are carefully prepared with plastic and drop cloths for protection against paint and over-spray. A complete list of our exterior painting services is available further down the page.

 Before After

The pictures above are from a house in Crystal Lake that we power washed and stained using two coats of Sherwin Williams Woodscapes solid stain on both the siding and trim. Sherwin Williams SuperPaint satin was used for the front doors. The siding on this house had multiple woodpecker holes that were carefully repaired before staining. Visit our extensive Before and After photo gallery to see more pictures of our painting projects.
