1. All of your large furniture is moved, by our team members, to the center of the work area and protected. All unpainted surfaces are masked and covered to ensure your home is protected as well. Plastic and tarps are clean, and free from particles that could get left behind.

2. Based on the work outlined in your estimate, we will fill any nail holes that are no longer desired, repair failed caulking and cracks that need attention.

3. After preparation, we will prime areas that have been repaired, i.e.: patches, new walls, priming smoke damage, or anything specifically outlined in your estimate.

4. Upon completion of your project, all of your belongings are moved back to their original location and the area is restored to the quality in which we arrived. We remove all of our materials and clean the area as needed.

5. Star Painting does a detailed inspection of the completed work. We ask the homeowner to take the time to note any areas of concern for a touch up to be addressed or a follow up to be scheduled.

1. On the exterior of your home, all substrates being painted will first be washed with 3500 PSI power wash. This removes any dirt that has built up over the years and knock down any chipping paint in the process.

2. Based on your estimated work, we will scrape loose paint, fill nail holes, caulk joints and sand glossy areas for proper bondage.

3. We hand prime areas where your previ ous paint chipped, new materials have been added or raw ends of siding. Hand priming these areas allows maximum penetration to create a proper bond. After these areas have been primed we apply wet on wet sprayed applications on the body and 2nd coat of Sherwin Williams paint as needed for coverage.

4. Upon completion of your project, all of your belongings are moved back to their original location, and restored to the quality in which we arrived. We remove all of our personal materials and clean as needed.

Star Painting Services is fully Insured and Licensed.

At Star Painting Services, we understand that every home and business is unique. That’s why we consult with each client to determine the scope of the painting project, a convenient working schedule, and any other information we need to ensure that the painting job goes smoothly.
Star Painting Services doesn’t believe in surprises. We estimate fairly and competitively on every painting job based on our initial consult with a potential client. We understand what it takes to complete all types of painting jobs and what they’re supposed to cost.
Proper preparation is often more involved than the actual paint application. It’s also the foundation of a beautiful, protective, long-lasting paint job. As a client, all you need to do is move the small things, such as ornaments and draperies. We’ll move and replace the heavy items.

Paint has a way of finding the smallest uncovered areas so we completely cover all surfaces. Furniture, book cases, plants, and landscaping are protected with lightweight plastic sheets. Floors are covered with canvas drop cloths and/or building paper. Hardware, light switch and receptacle covers, nails and brackets are removed and carefully stored. We use masking tape to secure drop cloths and sheeting, protecting surfaces near flooring and around hardware that cannot be safety removed.

With all of your personal items cleared away and areas protected, we inspect surfaces such as walls, ceilings and trim for stains, holes, cracks, peeling and other imperfections. Problems such as water staining and peeling paint require further investigation. If the cause of the defect is not found and repaired, it may ruin the appearance your new paint job.

Then, we clean soiled areas of dirt and grease that interfere with paint adhesion. Holes and cracks are filled and joints caulked. Loose paint is removed and imperfections are filled and sanded smooth.

This is an excellent time to consider upgrades and talk to us about additional services. New trim can have an almost magical effect on the appearance and character of your home or business. A professionally treated deck will ultimately save you money. We know your time is valuable so Star Painting Services makes it convenient for you to use our services.

The final step before painting is priming. Primer evens out the porosity of the surface so that the paint covering is uniform and adheres well. All repairs and surfaces including drywall, plaster, stucco and raw wood need to be completed and primed before proceeding with the application of the finish paint.

Top quality paints by Sherwin Williams are designed to produce the best looking and longest lasting results. Although premium paint may cost a little more, it provides a smoother, more uniform appearance and can last more than twice as long as standard paint — truly a more economical choice over the long term. We prefer Sherman Williams paint but will work with any brand your prefer, it’s completely up to you.
Our expert painters are fully trained in all areas of paint application, from traditional brush and roll painting to modern spray techniques. Paint that is professionally applied by traditional brush and roller techniques is best for most situations. Spray painting is typically used when surfaces are very coarse, such as popcorn textured ceilings or when an extremely fine furniture grade finish is desired on cabinetry. Regardless of the method, the end result is attractive, even color, clean-cut lines and maximum durability.
We remove all painting materials, tools and protective coverings. The floor/ground is cleaned and all furniture is put back in place. We deliver waste paints and related materials to a recycling and collection facility. Paint, stain and wood preservative finishes and related materials (thinners, solvents, etc.) are regarded as hazardous products and will be disposed of according to regulations. We always clean up after ourselves so there is no mess or garbage left for you to deal with. It’s like we were never there except for the beautiful new paint. 
Most painting companies finish a job, collect their money and move on, forgetting that the experience ever happened. Star Painting Services wants to know how we did, so we personally follow up after cleaning up to ensure that you are completely happy with your new paint job. Have a suggestion? We’d like to hear that, too, so that we can serve our clients better.
Even a properly applied coating cannot last forever. Extreme weather, and the unpredictable nature of old paint and uncorrected or undetected house flaws such as leaky gutters, clogged drain tiles and damaged wood, will determine what maintenance is needed.
