Precision Guarantee – Exterior



This page is intended to be a supplement to your estimate document

As part of our exterior painting quote, we guarantee  that the following items will be masked, covered up, and protected from any paint drips, splatters, and over-spray.


Large Plants

We love plants.  We spend the entire spring & summer around them and do everything we can to protect them from paint.  There are situations where a plant might need to be pruned to allow us access to the surface behind it, but usually we have multiple methods to cover-up and pull plants away from the surface, with minimum disturbance to the plant.  Once paint is dry, we simply release the plant to it’s original position.

Using drop cloths to keep the branches from touching the siding, while paint dries. This plant is partially covered until the crew is painting around it, at which time it is fully covered and protected.



Small plants

we use our plant protectors to keep paint off of smaller plants, and also protect them from being stepped on.

Roofing material  will be protected using masking machines and 3m masking paper.  Areas close to the siding, the roofing material will be masked precisely, while the drop cloths cover the rest as needed.  We paint roof flashing only when it has already been painted(mistakenly) by previous painters.

Decks, porches, railings, etc.  will be protected using masking machines and 3m masking paper.  Body of the deck will be covered up to prevent paint drops, overspray, splatters, etc.
