Giving it a facelift is only one of the many benefits. A coat of good quality paint will also protect your home from the elements and add value to it. Another benefit, though it may not seem so, is the fact that the process of preparing your home for painting can reveal issues that need to be addressed. Some of these may be little things that you never noticed before. While others may be small problems that could lead to larger problems with more expensive repairs down the road.
Do-It-Yourself vs. Hiring Professionals
Painting the exterior of a house is a big job no matter the size of the home. Such an undertaking makes for an ambitious DIY project. While it may give you the satisfaction of completing a job well done, you may want to take a few things into consideration before you get out your paint brushes and pull out your ladder.
Painting the exterior of your home is going to require some prep work. What kind and how much depends on the type of siding you have, the condition of the exterior, the time of year you plan on doing the work and other factors. If this is a job you have never done, or if you are new to the Arizona climate, you have some research to do before you get started.
When you hire professionals to do the job, you can relax while they do the work for you. At Arizona Paint, we have the expertise to prep and paint your house the way it should be painted. Different sidings call for different paints and/or techniques. Novice painters or poor workmanship can leave you with an exterior that peels or blisters, not to mention that it may not look as good as you expected.
Your home is an investment whether you plan to live there for a few years or decades, and it requires protection from the elements. You want your home to always look its best and that means a paint job that stands up to the weather beautifully. At the Arizona Painting Company, not only do we stand by our work, we also offer warranties to back it up. That’s another reason to consider hiring professionals.
When you hire the Arizona Painting Company, you are not only hiring experts in the home painting industry, you are insuring that your house is going to look beautiful for years. You will get a professionally executed paint job and a warranty that provides for any repairs that need to be performed during the warranty period. If there is a problem, all you need to do is call our main office. One of our professional painters will be there to take care of it for you.
The Bronze Package | 3-Year Warranty
This package offers you a choice between two quality 100% acrylic paints that render a very nice professional finish. Generally these paints have a life span of 6 to 8 years, depending on the color. After that you will want to consider getting your home painted again. We offer a 3-year warranty with this package; however, because of the sunny climate we cannot cover fading. Be aware that darker colors will fade faster than lighter colors. At the Arizona Painting Company, we only offer quality paints. Even though this is our economy package, rest assured that you are not getting cheap contractor paint used by some painting companies. If you are planning on selling your house in 5 years or less, you want to consider this option first.
The Silver Package | 5-Year Warranty
Planning on staying put for 7-8 years? The Silver package may be the choice for you. Either Dunn Edwards or Sherwin-Williams paint will be used. Both of these are 100% acrylic and higher quality paint than our Bronze package. You can expect the exterior of your home to look good going into the next decade before it needs paint again when you choose our Silver package. When you consider the annual cost, you save about $62 per year with an upgrade to the Silver package.
The Gold Package | 10-Year Warranty
For families who are settled in for the duration, we highly recommend our Gold package. Without a doubt, it is the best warranty you can get in Arizona. For this option, we use Sherwin-Williams Duration paints. This particular paint uses a proprietary technology called Permlast and it is exclusive to Sherwin-Williams. Duration paints have been developed with the latest advances in acrylic technology. It is self-priming and dries almost two times the thickness of the paints in our Silver package. Annually, this package will save you about $120 compared with the less expensive package.
At the Arizona Painting Company, our goal is to ensure that our clients are highly satisfied with the quality of our work and professionalism of our painting crews. Our testimonials will attest to the fact that we do our best to provide each client with high quality professional service. Call us today for a consultation for your home exterior painting project.
