Home Painting Contractor Completes Variety of Jobs

Posted by megan.anderson on Jul 27, 2015 1:29:04 PM

In Strongsville, OH a family is so confident with Textbook Painting's Services that they have had our crew out three times to work on different projects.

Two years ago, when the family first called Textbook Painting, they wanted the front exterior of their home redone. This year, Textbook Painting contractors were able to help paint the back exterior of the home including the window trim and several awnings. More recently, the owner of the home called us to have their fence and deck stained.

To start the staining project, the fence was power washed clean then left to dry. After the fence was dry it was sprayed with Woodscapes semi-transparent stain from Sherwin Williams. By spraying the fence rather than brush and rolling it the project was able to be completed quicker and more efficiently. Although spraying is a quicker method, the fence still needed to be back brushed to ensure overall coverage. A semi-transparent stain was the customers choice for this fence mainly because it adds color while still allowing the grain of the wood to be seen.

We are thankful to have such loyal customers who can trust us with any project on their house, big or small. If you have a job that needs to be completed do not hesitate to call us by phone (216)503-4480 or click here to set up a free estimate. We are more than willing to do all we can for you and your home!
