Protect Your Investment

When you consider the amount of money you have invested in your siding, professional paint application makes a lot of sense to protect your investment. Call Mike at 541-497-3804.

Many exterior building products are engineered to have a protective layer of paint. Paint provides protection against water intrusion and against ultraviolet light deterioration. Many siding types are not particularly strong or resilient unless they are properly sealed and painted.

According to the Engineered Wood Association, “Proper finishing protects siding from the weather, reduces maintenance and promotes long-lasting performance. Weather can cause surface damage to unprotected wood within 4 weeks of exposure and adversely affect the performance of subsequently applied finishes. Preprimed products should be top-coated within 60 to 90 days of installation.”

The Paint Doctor takes into account the specific recommendations provided by the siding manufacturers. These recommendations are not just for the chemical characteristics of the primers and paints, but timing and how to apply the product. For example, “The first coat should either be brush-applied or sprayed and back-brushed while the finish is still wet. This is essential for textured surfaces, such as rough-sawn. Brushing helps work the finish into the siding, therefore providing better protection to the siding surface and optimum finish adhesion,” according to the Engineered Wood Association.

Additionally the edges and transitions must be sealed with proper caulking products professionally applied.

When you consider the amount of money you have invested in your siding, professional paint application makes a lot of sense to protect your investment. Call Mike at 541-497-3804.

Call the Doctor

When you hire the pros at Paint Doctor’s Painting, you get an entire crew doing all of those difficult painting operations at once with the speed and accuracy that comes with doing the job right the first time every time.

Paint Doctor’s Painting would love to transform your interior spaces with the color of your choosing or give some new curb appeal to your exterior. Call Mike at 541-497-3804.
When you consider the amount of time involved in doing your own paint project compared to hiring the Doctor, we think you will agree. Many property owners significantly underestimate what it takes to wash, prep, caulk, fill, sand, scrape, mask, pack, place, climb, spray, roll, brush, move and do it all again.
However, when you hire the pros at Paint Doctor’s Painting, you get an entire crew that is doing all of these operations at once with the speed and accuracy that comes with doing the job right the first time every day. Rather than having your house in that paint-job-in-process mode for weeks, you can have the whole job completed in a day or two.
Consider also the safety factor. We have the equipment and knowledge to do the job safely. When you consider how each time you move a ladder and reset it you have to get it just right and even then you are climbing, reaching and working off that ladder… Better left to the pros.

Paint samples can help home owners decide what colors to use when planning a project. Paint Doctor's Painting can help.

According to Sherwin-Williams, “By sampling colors at home, you can be sure you’ve selected the right colors for your space. Color to Go samples make it easy. These small, Twist-n-Pour containers cover about 75 sq. ft., which helps you try colors to see exactly how they work with your lighting and decor. Color to Go helps you narrow in on the right color when you can’t decide between favorites.”

Painting is Prep

All skilled painters understand that most of the job in painting is preparation. Making sure the surface is ready to receive the product by cleaning, removing or sealing peeling paint, repairing holes, caulking joints, etc. And masking – this is a task that can make or break the quality of the paint job itself and prevent damaging other surfaces

One way property owners get themselves in trouble on painting projects is by thinking “I’ll just get some paint and smear or spray it on.” There is a lot more to it than that. All skilled painters understand that most of the job in painting is preparation. Making sure the surface is ready to receive the product by cleaning, removing or sealing peeling paint, repairing holes, caulking joints, etc. And masking – this is a task that can make or break the quality of the paint job itself and prevent damaging other surfaces.

The right masking materials (tape, paper, plastic sheeting, etc) make a big difference in the results. Clean, straight lines are not automatic. It takes lots of practice to get it right. Understanding the dynamics of the air pressures produced by pressurized paint and how to layer masking, use guards and drop cloths are all big components of a job well done.

Calming Colors

Rooted in the idea of nature, the Sanctuary color collection focuses on the natural world.

Sanctuary
Rooted in the idea of nature,  the Sanctuary color collection by Sherwin-Williams focuses on the connection that the natural world has to nurturing wellness and calm. This palette is influenced by biophilia, nesting and Scandinavian design. The quietness of Pure White SW 7005 is a signal to take respite, slow down and embrace what’s truly important. The warm minimalism of Morris Room Grey SW 0037 is a reminder that less is more.

Other colors in Sanctuary include Oakmoss SW 6180, Messenger Bag SW 7740 and Canyon Clay SW 6054.

For these or other color options to make your living space a sanctuary during these turbulent times, call Mike of Paint Doctor’s Painting 541-497-3804.

Church Painting

Having an attractive, well maintained property shows the community you are committed to quality and that you care about them by taking care of the way your neighborhood looks. An attractive paint job plays a major role in this aspect of your community outreach.

Church Painting

A quality paint job not only improves your church’s testimony in the community, it is also good stewardship because it protects the investment your church body has made on the property.

Although most of us recognize that the people (and not the building) are the church, in many ways the building represents the church body in the community. Having an attractive, well maintained property shows the community you are committed to quality and that you care about them by taking care of the way your neighborhood looks. An attractive paint job plays a major role in this aspect of your community outreach.

In addition to the appearance, properly applied paint also protects your building by providing a barrier against water and UV damage. Most exterior building materials were designed to have a protective covering of paint. Without up-to-date paint protection, these materials are susceptible to damaging water intrusion as well as to ultraviolet light damage. Both of these factors can greatly shorten the life expectancy of your church exterior.

In addition to damage to the exterior, water can get into the framing, insulation, sheetrock and carpet causing rot or mold issues. Paint really does protect.

As a church leader, you will be faced with decisions about how to proceed with getting the paint protection your property needs. Hopefully you will be able to navigate questions of body and trim color without too much trouble. But what about the actual labor to get the job done. Here’s why we think volunteers may not be the way to go for this task:

  1. A quality paint job is just as much about preparing the surfaces as it is about applying the paint. Loose and peeling paint need to be removed, a job that requires a specific skill set not to mention that the debris can end up in flower beds, on sidewalks and on parking lots. Ever try to clean up paint flakes and old caulking?
  2. Church buildings are bigger than you think. Reaching gables, bell towers, spires, crosses and cupolas can be difficult and dangerous especially without the proper equipment. How is your liability insurance?
  3. A church painting project can take months when relying on volunteers. Our estimators can provide you with a completion date and our large, experienced crew can complete the job quickly.

Paint Doctor’s Painting specializes in painting church buildings. We understand your questions and concerns. We are here to help. Give Mike a call at 541-497-3804
