Professional Painting in Oak Grove – Trusted Experts

in this video by ABN Painting we are working on exterior a two-story stucco house and this is the look of the house before we started preparation work.

There's quite a bit of paint that is peeling especially around the trim a few holes in stucco.

On a back patio ceiling joint tape is missing, on the front patio ceiling there is a lot of peeling paint, metal side gate has a little bit of rust on the bottom.

We scraped any loose paint by hand and applied elastomeric patch to scraped areas to fix any hairline cracks.

To fix any larger cracks and in trim fascia we used latex caulk and after we squeezed it out of the tube using caulking gun we used the brush to spread it evenly throughout the trim.

We musked all windows using plastic and green tape.

Green tape gives approximately three days of clean removal.

If the tape is removed within three days from the windows it will not leave any residual glue.

Using green tape and 12-inch masking paper we masked off staircase and the wooden patio that will not be painted.

We masked off the unpainted block wall.

To protect the floor on the back patio we used paper around the perimeter and covered the middle witrh tarps.

After scraping loose paint near the foundation of the house we applied elastomeric patch.

The side of the house that belongs to the neighbor we covered with paper.

On the front of the house we covered with tarps all concrete surfaces.

To protect roof shingles from all spray we run a 12-inch masking paper next to the stucco and when we're ready to spray paint the second level we'll cover the rest of the shingles with tarps.

We fixed all holes in stucco using stucco mix.

On the front patio ceiling we scraped all loose paint.

Re-textured the ceiling using drywall mud and using latex caulk filled any gaps between the stucco and the drywall.

On the back patio ceiling after we applied joint tape we textured the ceiling as well.

We're sending both ceilings on the front as well as on the back before applying the primer.

To prime repaired areas on the ceilings we're using general-purpose primer ultra grip by Dunn Edwards.

It is of dark color for no specific purpose it is just leftovers from one of our previous jobs.

After we are done with priming we apply the first coat of paint of the body color.

Before spray-painting metal gate we're using an oil-based primer to cover the areas that are rusty.

After we are finished spray painting the body of the house we're using a mini roller and a brush to paint the trim fascia.

After were done with cleanup and touch-ups this is the look of the house.

How to Estimate an Interior Paint Job

interior residential painting The square foot method of estimating a paint job is probably the dumbest way to estimate a paint job. Sorry, I am wrong; it is the second dumbest job. It just seems like the dumbest method. The winner of the dumbest job goes to the W.A.G. (wild-ass guess) Method of Estimating a Paint Job. Out of the basic three methods of how to estimate a paint job, the W.A.G. Method of Estimating a Paint Job, is the creation of the magician of the paint estimators. This painting contractor can look at a $15,000 paint job and in 5 seconds give a very inaccurate price on painting the interior of a house. This magician love to bask in the glory when homeowners the world over tell this paint estimator that he is simply fabulous. Anyway, the W.A.G. method isn't even worth spit.The Square Foot Method warrants acknowledgment, if for no other reason than to point out that although a great many painters subscribe to this method, it really is quite a stupid way to arrive at a price for a paint job. Why is this a lame way to estimate? The question is how can anyone estimate a price of a paint job by the square footage of a floor? A couple of simple examples will shine some light on the darkness of this method. Let's take two interior paint jobs; the first one is a family room 200 square feet built in the 1950's so it has an eight foot high ceiling. The doors are the style that was popular in residential construction back then, flush doors. The windows are also a style that was popular back then, standard size but four divided windows commonly called two over two, or 2/2. All the molding is of the style popular in the 1950's also, a pattern called ranch or clamshell molding, a simple smooth slightly curved molding. The molding consists of baseboard, door trim and window trim. There are two flush doors and four windows in this room.The second room was built in the 1980's, also 200 square feet. This room has an eighteen foot high ceiling. The doors are reflective of the decade that his room was built in, three panel doors, and six wooden French Doors; the four windows are a true twelve individual pane widow commonly called a six over six or 6/6. This room has a very deep profile colonial trim. The molding is baseboard, chair rail, crown molding, door trim and window trim. Don't forget this room has six doors and four windows.If someone estimates these rooms using the square foot method, they will arrive at the same price because both rooms have exactly the same square footage of floor. But you will see that the latter room has more than double the square footage of wall, and that both the ceiling and the extra square footage of wall are at twice the height of the first room, entailing much longer times to paint these areas. Also the time to paint a French Door is double the time to paint a flush door, and the second room has six doors while the first has two. The windows on the second job being 6/6 vs. 2/2 also take twice as long to paint. The second room has three times the molding as the first room and the crown molding is eighteen feet off the ground, meaning two times as long to paint than molding at arm's length. Obviously, estimating a room by the square footage of floor is a very inaccurate method of estimating an interior paint job.
