When the primer is dry, caulk all small joints (less than ¼-inch-wide) in the siding and trim. Most pros use siliconized acrylics—paint won't stick to straight silicones—but Guertin and O'Neil like the new, more expensive urethane acrylics for their greater flexibility and longevity. O'Neil stresses that it's shortsighted to skimp on caulk. "If the joint fails, you're back to square one." Guertin uses the lifetime rating as his quality guide. "I don't expect 35-year caulk will last 35 years, but it should last longer than a 15-year caulk." Home Painters "Thank you for doing a really great job preparing and painting my house. I was very pleased with the quality of your work as well as the efficient and courteous manner in which it was performed. I highly commend you for your attention to detail and continuous supervision while the work was in progress. I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and neighbors for any painting needs they might have" Home Painters Because it is next to impossible to find out information about local painting contractors on the Internet, the adage “talk to neighbors” applies here. Some painting contractors display signs on the lawns of houses they are working on, but you find this more with general contractors and siding and replacement windows companies. So, other than the painter’s white panel van out front, you often do not know what is going on inside your neighbors’ houses.
As the dance proceeds, keep an eye on the weather. Rain can wash freshly applied latex right off the wall, and a temperature dip below 50 degrees F two days after application can interfere with adhesion and curing and dull the sheen of glossy paints. (Latexes like Sherwin-Williams's Duration and Benjamin Moore's MoorGard Low Lustre are formulated to tolerate temps as low as 35 and 40 degrees, respectively.)

Deciding which paint to use has gotten much easier now that acrylic latexes have pushed oil-based paints almost to extinction. The acrylics offer superior performance (they don't harden with age, the way oils do, so they move and breathe without blistering), they don't mildew as readily, and they emit fewer VOCs, so they comply with new air-quality regulations. They also work over both oil- and water-based primers. Home Painting At Top Coat Painting we have built a reputation as a first rate New Haven painting contractor that you can depend on.

Home Painting "“From the desk of Nicholas Solimini: Hi Mark, I did get your report card form but thought this letter would be a better way to comment on the job and all the peripherals. I hope this is helpful. INITIAL PRESENTATION Grade: A COMMENTS: I was very impressed with our initial meeting. You were on time, looked professional, had a professional demeanor and exhibited expert knowledge. The information packet you brought over, which included your license and insurance information, was very helpful. Unlike other contractors I called, you were able to give me a quote right at the first meeting which was also very helpful. You were courteous and really seemed to want my business without being pushy or had sell. COLOR SELECTION Grade: A COMMENTS: The color and tone that you initially mentioned was the color I went with and it was perfect for the space, truly perfect. It imparts just enough color and is a nice contrast to the white ceiling and trim. PREPARATION Grade: A COMMENTS: I thought the preparation was done expertly. Your crew took the time to really prep the walls and the ceiling. Based on the condition of the walls to begin with I was impressed by the prep work. CREW Grade: A COMMENTS: I was very impressed with your job foreman. I thought he was very accommodating and very pleasant to deal with. In fact, it was his willingness to come over and sample the colors that led me to choose your color recommendation. I really didn’t get to know the entire crew, as I left the house open while I was at work, but the foreman was excellent! CEILINGS Grade: A COMMENTS: Overall the work on the ceiling, the prep, re-taping and re-popcorn work was nearly outstanding. It looks brand new. I did find one very small area where it looks like a small crack might have returned. This keeps me from giving the full A. But as long as that spot holds the paint I am satisfied. WALLS Grade: A COMMENTS: The walls look marvelous. Again, based on the 22 year age of the house I am very happy with the walls. All the settling cracks were addressed as were any holes or other imperfections. Good job. FINAL THOUGHTS/RECOMMENDATION Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with MDF Painting and was glad that I made the choice to use you. Not only will I use you again, I have already talked to your office about re-painting my den. Your foreman even mentioned getting some samples out to me over the next few weeks and I am looking forward to seeing them and getting that project done. “The inside of my house, for the most part, looks brand new and I am very happy. I would certainly recommend you to any prospective client. I STRONGLY urge anyone who needs painting done to contact you to discuss the project. Please feel free to give my telephone number out to anyone who would like to ask me any questions.”" House Painting
