Ask The Painter: What can you do for my Deck or Fence?

June 23, 2010

Stain is the Traditional Choice, but Which Stain? Exterior stain is the traditional product choice for protecting and beautifying wood decks and fences, but even a few minutes spent investigating stain products can lead to a bewildering number of choices.

Ask The Painter: Oil-based vs. Acrylic Enamels

June 23, 2010

What are the trade-offs between the two enamels? Traditionally, oil-based (technically known as “Alkyd”) enamels have been the coating of choice for painting interior trim and doors. There are several reasons for this. Among them are glossier appearance, increased durability (compared to acrylic enamels), and a longer drying time that allows brush marks to “flow out”. One disadvantage of oil-based

Ask The Painter: When Should I Worry about Lead or Asbestos?

June 23, 2010

Homes Built Before 1978 May Have Issues If only we knew then what we know now. How many times have we heard that expression? As science and technology advance, we continue to find that materials previously thought to be relatively benign are, in fact, more harmful than we knew.

Ask The Painter: What can I apply to my garage floor?

June 23, 2010

One Product Stands Above All Others We are occasionally asked by homeowners what can be done to improve the look of their garage floors. While there are many products that can be used on concrete, very few of them are suitable for garages, because of the simple fact that garage floors are meant to be driven on. There is one

Ask The Painter: How should I repaint my stucco exterior?

June 23, 2010

(Elastomeric Coatings vs. Acrylic Latex) “Stucco” is a mixture based on Portland Cement that is widely used as a siding material on Texas homes, as well as other parts of the country. Stucco may be applied by hand trowel, sprayed on to a very coarse rough texture, or sprayed on and then partially smoothed with a trowel to created a

Ask The Painter: Going Green

June 23, 2010

How is the Painting Industry “Going Green”? The guidelines governing “green” materials (among other things) are documented in the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ a voluntary set of guidelines and practices set by the U.S. Green Building Council*. Current LEED® guidelines for an interior latex paint to be designated as “green” set the limits

What Homeowners Are Saying
5.0
Average Star Rating

We needed to have some exterior and interior painting done and were also on a tight schedule. Southern painting did a great job and worked with our schedule. The house looks amazing! The entire process was very easy and everyone was friendly and professional.

I would definitely hire Southern Painting again. Professional, trustworthy and conscientious.

I can't believe the professional care we experienced with Southern Painting! The crew was very knowledgeable, experienced and took care of our older home like it was their own.

Absolutely phenomenal company to work with. Did a fantastic job and was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend them to others!
