Caldwell Painting offers fine residential refinishing. We protect your flooring and furniture with paper, plastic or drop cloths and keep dust from sanding to a minimum. Proper preparation of painted interior surfaces is very important. We fill old nail holes, nail pops on walls and scrape, when possible, old paint drips and runs. When done correctly this allows for even coverage and consistent sheen for ceiling, walls and trim. We don’t just apply color. We provide a proper finish. After the painting is complete and the protective covering is removed, we make sure there is no residual dust left on flooring or furniture.
Caldwell Painting spends a great deal of time on preparation to paint exterior surfaces. We begin with pressure washing surfaces to be painted using water, and where required soap and a light bleach solution to remove mildew. We then scrape and sand loose paint and prime raw wood. We repair or replace rotten wood or damaged siding, then caulk gaps and joints. We use top grade products that will extend the life of your coating. We use several techniques. We spray or brush and roll each surface to thickness specifications depending on the paint product used. We generally do not paint exteriors when temperatures are forecasted below 40 degrees to extend the paint life.
Exterior Painting Brick or Stucco:
Painted brick has become one of our most popular services. Due to this trend in design, the paint manufacturers have developed products to service this demand. It is very important that it is done correctly the first time. The use of bonding primers before the application of finish coat will prevent peeling in the future. It is a little more costly but it will save money in the long run.
Sheet Rock Repair:
The repair and replacement of sheet rock on walls and ceilings is a staple of the painting industry. Water damage or house settling causes a need to be proficient in these skills. All our painters are trained to make these repairs.
Popcorn Ceiling Removal:
The smoothing of ceilings is becoming extremely popular. Caldwell Painting offers this service on a square foot price. Much of the time required to do these projects is spent in the clean-up. All surfaces are covered in multiple layers of plastic and after the ceilings have been cleaned and smoothed, the plastic and popcorn is discarded. The floors are vacuumed and floors are dusted. This can be quite a mess, but the final result is worth it.
Wallpaper removal is difficult to estimate. Sometimes it comes off easily. Other times it comes off in nickel and dime pieces. It depends on the prep of the wall prior to installation. We use the most effective tools depending on the project. Because of the unknown, wallpaper removal is charged on a per hour basis.
We provide different variations of kitchen cabinet refinishing. From brushing to spraying or combinations of both. There are products specifically designed for cabinet painting. You can completely change the look of your kitchen without changing out your cabinets at a fraction of the price.
