Should I have our rotted wood replaced before painting our Shelby Twp home?

We highly recommend replacing your rotted wood prior to painting because it prevents further decay of the wood and ensures that your new paint job will last much longer. If you paint over rotted wood, it won’t stop moisture from entering the wood and will create a bigger problem over time. At The Exterior Painters we have always replaced any rotted or damaged wood before the painting process begins.

What to look for when hiring a painter in Shelby Twp.

When hiring a local professional painting contractor, you want to make sure of these important things:

  1. Always make sure that they’re licensed & insured.
  2. Ask for their most recent references and read their newest Google/Facebook reviews.
  3. Ask for a list of homes painted in Shelby Township.
  4. Ensure that they do the prep work properly by checking for any and all rotted wood, steam cleaning the exterior, caulking all cracks and gaps, protect all areas of landscaping and other areas that shouldn’t be painted such as composite decks, windows, roofs, railings and more.
  5. Ask them to provide a written proposal and read it thoroughly.
  6. Verify that they warranty their work. This holds the company accountable for their quality.
  7. Never prepay in full or give a deposit over 20% to begin the work.
