  Answers

question How do you fix areas of recurring peeling?

Seal the surface so that no water can enter (using caulk or even adding metal flashing), then prime and paint with quality product.    Areas that cannot be sealed (deck joists, decks, e.g.) should be stained.

question How can I achieve the look of paint without having to deal with peeling in the future?

Solid-color acrylic stains.  These can give a pigmented finish, without the large peeling and paint failure issues.  Not only can these stains allow the natural wood grain to show through, but they can also be very effective on previously oiled structures that may be prone to peeling if painted.  See our staining section.

question I want to change the color of my house, but I’m not sure exactly what color I want.  Where do I start?

Find a color in the Truckee/ Lake Tahoe area and let us know the address.  We can match it or find something that similar.  Otherwise, we can apply samples from our previous projects or even new custom colors.

question What’s the benefit from choosing stock colors?

If you need to touch-up often (high traffic areas, e.g.)

question What paint companies do you use?

We use only the top products from various manufacturers.  Contact us for details. 

question How do you get rid of mold/ mildew?

Test for mildew by applying a few drops of household bleach to the area.  Use a solution of 1 part bleach to 3 parts water and rinse thoroughly before painting.

question  Do you paint stucco?

Yes.  Ask us about our special stucco procedure and our elastomeric paints.

question Do you paint roofs?

Yes. Contact us for details.
