The Painting Craftsman 

 

Company Info


The Painting Craftsman specializes in high quality residential exterior and interior house painting. It is the craftsmanship that unites an artistic touch with painting techniques creating value that goes beyond the ordinary. Use of imagination,  thoughtful designs and a wealth of experience all in conjunction with proper preparation and painting techniques builds a quality of work difficult to surpass.

With regard to exteriors, The Painting Craftsman has been a leader in the development of preparation techniques in an effort to maximize the time between house repainting's. Since 1980, The Painting Craftsman has stripped the paint off of over 100 houses. This preparation allows houses to generally hold paint past 10 years and with new materials it is hoped that time between repainting a surface can be extended to 15 or 20 years. The rule of thumb used, since 1980, has been to strip paint off any surface that could not hold paint beyond an 8 to 10 year period. The complete repainting of home exteriors prior to that 8 to 10 year period is generally a waste of recourses. Any good quality paint should last that long. Prior to that 10 year period it should be the surface underneath the topcoat that fails. That surface beneath the topcoats can be and should be fixed.
