Resources, Advice, and Tips

Interior & Exterior Painting in Connecticut

  • Always stay consistent! If your topcoat will be satin, buy color samples with a satin sheen.
  • Always take time to make oversized paint color sampleboards. That’s the only way to see how the color will really look in your home.
  • Always check how the colors work with your existing home design. Hold the sampleboards next to your floors, woodwork, window treatments, furniture, ceiling, etc.
  • Always take time and “live” with the samples for a couple of days. Check how they appear throughout the day as the lighting conditions change.
  • If you are planning to sell your home in the near future, always ask people you trust for their opinion. Feedback is important! Trust the general consensus. You may love a particular color, but if it can hurt your resell value, avoid it. However, if you plan to live in your home for years to come then choose the color you love most, as you will be spending a long time with it!

Power Washing Services in Connecticut

  • To prevent streaks, spray cleaning solution from the bottom and working up in identifiable sections. Allow the solution to work five to 10 minutes. Don’t let it dry; keep it wet.
  • Use a rotating scrub brush attachment to scour heavily soiled areas of your siding.
  • Use a general, medium-pressure pattern to rinse. Flush any detergent from the system, and test the cleaning power on an inconspicuous area. Rinse the detergent and residue, working from the top down. Work in the same direction as any overlaps to keep water out from underneath the siding.

Drywall Install & Repair Services in Connecticut

  • Keep tools and mixing containers clean at all times. Always use clean water for mixing.
  • Add powder compounds to water when mixing—not water to powder. And sift compounds while pouring.
  • Use 150 grit or finer sandpaper (220 grit abrasive mesh cloth) when sanding topping or lightweight all-purpose joint compounds.
  • Remove all sanding dust from surfaces prior to decorating.
  • Don't roughen the surface paper of drywall panels when sanding. This raises the nap of the paper and can cause joint and fastener areas to remain visible after final decoration.
  • Don't begin painting before the joints are thoroughly dry. Painting over wet joints is a major cause of joint discoloration.
  • Don't apply excess knife pressure when spotting nail heads. This practice scoops compound out of the dimpled area surrounding the fastener.
