Painting your home exterior doesn’t have to be a pain. Save yourself the headache and hire a PaintTekologist. From stucco, brick and cement siding, to vinyl, cedar, and wood trim, we have the expertise to handle your toughest jobs. Take a look at our Exterior House Painting Photo Gallery, and see why more Victoria home owners love PaintTek.
No two jobs are the same, which is why we start your project with a personal in-home consultation. We’ll answer your questions, evaluate the state of your exterior house paint, and advise you on available paint options. Then we’ll provide a comprehensive written estimate with paint info, cost, and schedule on the spot.
Once you’ve signed a service agreement, you’ll have the option to work with our professional colour consultant as a complimentary service. This is much more than just an digital color viewer that shows how your home will look in various different colours. Our consultant will advise you on how to build a unified colour palette that not only makes you the envy of neighbours, but also increases the long-term resale value of your home.
This is where most paint jobs make or break it. Improper surface preparation is the leading cause of premature paint failure (click to view our Paint Problems Gallery). Our approach includes power-washing, scraping, sanding, caulking, and masking if required. We’ll also protect all doorways, shrubbery, and outdoor furniture from dripping paint. If the surface has been power-washed, we will give it adequate drying time – a critical step that is frequently ignored.
Now it’s time to paint. We’ll arrive on time with the painting crew and equipment. If specified, we’ll prime the surface to ensure proper adhesion of the paint. We’ll start painting trim and windows frames, followed by the stucco or siding using an airless sprayer or brush/roller depending on what’s needed. We’ll apply two coats for a evenly-coloured, long-lasting finish.
Once the painting is done, it’s time to clean-up by sweeping, bagging and disposing of any leftover materials or mess. If you are getting exterior renovation work done by us (such as decking, driveway/pathway repair, or window/door replacement), we’ll ensure everything is properly coordinated. You’ll then do a walkthrough inspection with your project manager to note any areas of concern and answer any questions about maintenance. Your project manager will leave you with a tidy binder with invoice, warranty, product/maintenance tips and contact information for future reference.
With PaintTek, you’re never left to solve problems on your own. We follow-up with you at the 3 month, 1 year, and 2 year marks to ensure you are still happy with the results. We’ll even handle any manufacturer warranty issues on your behalf. We’re only a phone call away.
In days past, if you had a stucco-covered bungalow you were ‘stuck’ with that colour forever. Not so! PaintTek’s experts can completely change the colour of your stucco, brick or cement siding house to give it a modern look that will increase its curb appeal (or we can source the paint to match your existing colour if you so choose). We even do stucco repair to match your pattern. We also do touch ups of existing siding, so give us a call today.
Cedar shingles and wood siding requires special care. Moisture in wood will cause premature rot, and premature failure of the paint or stain. The same goes for windows and door trim. Removing the rot, proper preparation, ensuring adequate dry time, is crucial to longevity of the stain or paint, regardless of the type of wood you have on your house. Call us if you have any questions or want some maintenance tips.
If it’s in your yard, we paint it! Decks, fences, arbours, gazebos or patio furniture – why go through the hassle of staining or painting these things every few years when you can get an expert job done fast and affordably? Get in touch today.
