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.
Paint with acceptable VOC levels: The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) reports that most conventional paints and coatings contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) that can be dangerous to your health. An experienced painting company will be able to advise you on the potential health hazards of these chemicals, which products are safest, and how to best manage any VOC risk that may occur.

"Just a quick note to let you know what an amazing job your crew is doing on our house… They are a delightful and professional crew and we couldn't be more pleased. As we discussed during our initial meeting, this project was going to require a lot of prep work (as you quoted 60% of our clapboard would be taken down to the bare wood), and they have really stepped up to the task without taking any shortcuts. Their attention to detail, in regard to creating the perfect painting surface that we'd all be happy with, has been stellar, and it goes a long way to showcase the quality and pride in work that MDF guarantees."
"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 Painting
Some service pros are employees, franchisees, dealers or independent contractors ("Corporate SP's") of larger national or "Corporate Accounts". When this is the case, you may be matched with the Corporate Account or with one of their Corporate service professionals. The above screening process is not applicable to Corporate Accounts, as HomeAdvisor does not screen Corporate Accounts or Corporate service professionals. House Painting
O'Neil patches shallow holes and divots with Ready Patch because it dries fast, sands smooth, and stays flexible. Deep cracks and rotten spots are best repaired with two-step epoxies, such as those made by Advanced Repair Technology. (For a step-by-step instructions, see Repairing Rot with Epoxy.) The days of using polyester auto-body fillers on wood are over. "They cure too hard," says Portland, Oregon–based painting contractor Kathleen George. "They look good at first, but then they peel away." Home Painters

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." House Painting CO

A thorough scrubbing is a must before painting any exterior surface. It removes the dirt and broken-down paint residues that keep fresh coats from adhering and gets rid of mildew that grows on paint in all but the most arid climates. Most contractors clean with pressure washers, but in the hands of someone unfamiliar with the equipment, these can gouge wood, shatter glass, and drive water behind siding and trim. Using a hose, a pump sprayer, and a scrub brush is slower but safer, and just as effective.

Wesley and Robeson were very professional to work with. They did such a great job repairing our deck and painting. We consider them to be "our" contractors, and have found additional jobs for them to do. My dad and brother are contractors, and I know the quality and service to expect. A and W Construction set the new bar for craftsmanship, quality of work, professionalism as far as we're concerned. Such hospitable, polite people. Home Painting

"Very happy to have hired Larry to repaint a bedroom in our house. He gave an honest and upfront quote based on the work needed, and he was eager to get started. He was very communicative throughout the entire process and always arrived on time. He's got a super positive attitude and should we have another project, we'll definitely be sure to call Larry!

"MDF stripped, primer and painted all of the exterior wood surfces on our 163 year old church, including the wood framing on many stained glass windows and the wood surfaces on our steeple. They completed this large scale project in just over three weeks, and their workmanship was truly exceptional. Bob and the team working through some of the hottest weather we've had in years. They did a truly outstanding job and were a complete pleasure to work with."
