When your home’s exterior paint starts to fade is the best time to repaint. A typical paint job should last 5 to 10 years. Small cracks, flaking paint, and peeling paint that is left untreated can lead to more serious problems with your home’s painted exterior where wood could become damaged and then other more serious repairs will be needed. Please feel free to consult Midtown Painting & Construction Services to evaluate your exterior painting needs.
No, it is not necessary for you to do the prep work. We will factor in all of the painting prep work needed. Unless you have experience in the field, it would be best to have Midtown Painting take care of the prep work. The cost will be included in your bid, but the cost you save yourself from having to repair or replace a second time, is well worth it.
4 to 6 weeks prior to the date you want your paint job completed by is a safe bet. Scheduling early gives you extra time to decide on your painting color choices.
Usually one coat of paint is sufficient. Applying several coats of paint is not necessary, as paint layers do build up and over applying can cause cracking and peeling. Typically, the only time we recommend two coats of paint is when you change your house’s paint color.
If you can be home for your estimate, that would be great, but not necessary. We will practice social distancing and wear a mask. We can examine the exterior paint and condition of your home with no one home, if needed. If you are not home, you will need to go over any painting details at a later time with us, so nothing will be missed. Please make sure to note all painting and preparation concerns as well.
There is no rush or pressure to pick your painting colors. Once we have scheduled your job, we’ll need your painting color choices a couple days before painting work begins.
No, we leave your painting project as clean as when we started.
A fresh coat of paint is the most economical way to freshen up your home when selling. Giving a new, clean, fresh appearance to your home will help curb appeal and aid in selling your home.
Repainting is only needed if the paint is fading, cracking, or if you see peeling paint. Pressure washing your home exterior will give it a fresh, clean look of new paint, by removing dirt and insects from the surface. If your home still looks faded after an exterior pressure washing, then you should consider repainting at that time. Pressure washing houses is one of the services we offer at Midtown.
Yes, we pressure wash houses, buildings, garages, driveways, sidewalks and patios.
You can pressure wash yearly or bi-yearly. It is best to examine your home for dirt, debris, cobwebs, mold or mildew, etc. to determine when it is best to pressure wash again.
We can help with minor repairs. We will evaluate any repairs you may need before we paint and will recommend a professional carpenter if needed.
