Evaluate the Situation - 12/31/09 08:54 AM
Always begin with an evaluation of the general state of the total exterior paint job of your home. If there is significant chipping, flaking, or other areas where the paint is failing, it's probably time to paint the entire home.

Water Damage - 12/28/09 09:41 AM
If the trim on your Tallahassee home is showing signs of water damage it’s most likely because it was not properly caulked, primed or painted. If water is getting behind the trim, it may be getting into other areas of your home and may be causing more serious problems. Have it checked sooner rather than later. (0 comments)

Buy the best, it pays - 12/22/09 09:01 AM
Always buy the best. We have found that lower grades of paint just do not perform as well.

Before putting your house on the market, consider these tips for freshening up your abode with paint: Select neutral colors Neutral colors harmonize with almost any décor.

Choose a Primer - 12/10/09 12:07 PM
If you buy an expensive high-quality paint, you expect it to stick around for a while. However, high-quality paint is formulated to work with a primer. Primers allow the paint to grip better and stay around longer. Sure, they may cost a little more up front, but primers will save you money (and time) in the long run. When you purchase primer, make sure you purchase the right kind for the job. Do I need a primer? Primers seal porous surfaces like bare wallboard and sealing water borne stains and tannin stains. Some primers are specially designed to adhere to glossy (0 comments)
