Inexpensive House Painters in Cleveland. Why are prices so different?

Posted by Michael Murray on Mar 19, 2017 9:20:48 PM

When looking for house painters in Cleveland, you certainly don't want to pay more than you have to. If you get 4 or 5 painting quotes, chances are one will be significantly less than the others. Typically, we are the second or third highest price, as we try to offer the best value; not necessarily the cheapest price. You can view our pricing page to get a good idea of our painting prices.

Posted by Michael Murray on Mar 14, 2017 11:01:21 PM

Awhile ago our team of local house painters in Lakewood painted this beautiful home on Edwards Ave. They had to do a thorough job scraping and prepping the house before we could prime and paint.

Priming Before Painting Aluminum Siding In Cleveland

Posted by Ted Bradfield on Mar 7, 2017 6:56:00 PM
When someone is considering painting aluminum siding in Cleveland, a common concern is regarding the importance of using a primer before painting. Most of the exterior paints we recommend have a built in primer that allow for adhesion to aluminum siding so a specific primer is not necessary. We also apply two coats of paint to ensure proper coverage and adhesion.

Because we only use the highest quality paints available, we stand behind every aluminum siding painting project in Cleveland with a 10 year warranty against peeling or failure.
