Frequent Questions

How long will it take to paint the exterior of my home?

Exterior painting usually takes one day, but larger homes or those needing lots of wood replaced might take 2-3 days. Power washing, done separately, takes 2-3 hours and is completed beforehand.

Do you power wash my exterior before painting my house?

Before painting, we wash your home’s exterior using a technique called soft washing. This method helps eliminate mold, mildew, and surface contaminants, ensuring better paint adhesion.

Do you offer wood replacement if I have rotted wood?


Our carpenters are skilled and prepared to replace entire walls of siding, all wood trim, or even individual boards as needed to ensure your exterior is ready for painting.

What's the best time of year to paint the exterior of a house?


The optimal time for painting the exterior of your Michigan home is from March 15th to November 15th. This period allows for painting at lower temperatures, with our paint being applicable even at 35 degrees. However, for houses with aluminum siding, it’s recommended to paint between April and October.

Can my windows be painted without damaging them?


We can paint the exterior of your home’s windows without causing any damage. For vinyl windows, we use a vinyl-safe formula, although there might be some color limitations. Wood or aluminum-clad windows are easier to paint. Casement windows are particularly suitable for painting. However, double-hung windows may occasionally incur minor scratches due to the sliding mechanism and friction between panels.

How much does it cost to paint the outside of a home?


In Michigan, the average cost of an exterior paint job for a residential home in 2023 varied between $4500 and $7500. This range depends on factors such as the size of the home, number of stories, the number of colors used, and the number of substrates being painted.

Can you paint vinyl siding?


Absolutely, you can paint your vinyl siding, and it’s increasingly popular. A fresh coat of paint can transform the appearance of your home and enhance its curb appeal. Nowadays, there’s a wide array of color choices available for vinyl siding paint. We provide a 15-year no-peel warranty for all vinyl siding painting, as long as the vinyl hasn’t been previously painted.

Should I paint my brick home?


Absolutely! While painting brick is possible, it may trap moisture, leading to issues. We strongly suggest staining instead. Our staining process waterproofs the brick while maintaining its texture and allowing moisture to escape. We provide a 15-year no-peel warranty on all stained brick, provided it hasn’t been previously painted.
