We will be dodging rainy days this month but will continue to paint exterior projects.  With fewer painters.  Tori is going to a university in Tacoma.  Eric is teaching special education in Salem.  Martin will be doing substitute teaching in 4 school districts.  Shayne and Jim are the only painters […]

When painting during hot days, we always stop painting when the temperature goes over 90 degrees.  The paint just doesn’t flow.  On really hot days, we start at 6 and finish at noon.

Our crew is very efficient.  Many of our customers want to wait until September for painting.  This means that we can do more exterior painting projects this year.  Call right away to schedule a free estimate (503-363-6930).

We just finished our first exterior in 2017.  This has been a wet spring.  Some news about estimates: we have contracts to paint 40 exterior projects which means our 2017 season is full.  We are doing exterior estimates for 2018.  It might be worth the wait.  We just got news […]

November and December are slow months: everyone is thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas.  So we are very flexible: we estimated an interior job last Sunday night and it was painted by Tuesday.  This is a good time to get a free estimate on painting your home’s exterior.  We have contracts […]

The first part of fall has been rainy.  We have been doing some interior projects and are hoping for sunny weather to finish the exterior projects we promised to paint this year.  Jim has learned to be a good weather predictor by checking the weather underground website and KGW’s weather […]
