Can you identify the key to a beautiful, lasting exterior paint finish?
- Many people are surprised to learn that it isn’t found in using quality products alone, or proper application techniques (as important as those things are). The key to an enduring finish is skilled, thorough surface preparation.
- Pressure washing, scraping, stripping, sanding–it’s dirty, hard work. In fact, greater than fifty percent of the time spent working on a home’s exterior finish should be devoted to surface preparation.
- This kind of preparation is particularly important here in Boston Painting Services where we experience such a wide range of weather. Historic homes (100-400 years old) are especially vulnerable because their thicker layers of paint become impermeable and too brittle to flex with seasonal changes of humidity and temperature.
We shopped around for painters for about a year, getting quotes from nearly 10 different companies. We chose Boston Painting because they were competitively priced, knowledgeable, and had the skills to do the full scope of the project (painting and carpentry). They were extremely detailed painters, and they performed the carpentry we needed that included replacing some rotted trim as well as completely rebuilding the rotted sill and underneath of one of our windows. I highly recommend Boston Painting to anybody looking for quality work at a fair price.
