Avoid A Notice To Paint In Four Seasons – Beaumont

Would you like to avoid receiving a notice from your Home Owners Association telling you to paint your house? Many homeowners are receiving letters telling them they need to paint their exterior to avoid fines and possible liens. Why ones home is selected over another is a complete mystery.

One home on a street will receive a notice while others go unnoticed. All the homes are on the same timeline which means, if one is ready for paint most likely the others are too. This tells us that they are selecting homes by appearance.

Here are some tips to avoid being singled out for exterior painting.

  • Rinse your home every six to eight weeks. A small power washer would be great but you can also use a hose nozzle. Rinse from the bottom and work your way up. Rinsing from the bottom up will prevent the stucco from becoming stained. Stucco is a very porous surface, if dirty water dries it could stain your home. Rinse in sections, once the water is coming down clear you can move to the next area.
  • Avoid using staples or nails on your fascia boards. Most of us can appreciate the Christmas cher. However those festive lights can create issues for your paint. Once you pierce the paint you created an opening for moisture to enter. This can cause your paint to peel, blister or discolor at a faster rate. Use plastic Christmas clips to hang your lights from.
  • Keep sprinklers from hitting your house. Water hitting your stucco or painted surface on a daily basis can break the material down quicker, cause discoloration and even promote mold growth. Talk to your landscapers to adjust or move sprinklers away from your home.
  • Paint your fascia boards before they are noticed. By simply having your fascia boards painted can help keep your home under the radar. You don’t have to paint your eaves and stucco. Some homes get noticed due to fascia boards faded and weathered. This is the same for front doors, garage doors and shutters. This is highly recommended for darker colors.

If you decide you want to paint your home regardless if you received a notice or not. Make sure quality coatings are being applied like Sherwin Williams Emerald or Benjamin Moore Aura. With the proper preparation and application, these products can help you avoid having to paint sooner than later. Contact us today to receive a painting estimates 760-910-1971

The Caulk-less Stucco Repair

Do you have stucco cracks? If you take pride in your home you might be frustrated in seeing those cracks appear out of no where. Stucco being a very dense material can easily crack with the slightest movement. Weather can even play a role in stucco cracking like the desert winds combined with rain. Here are a few more reason cracks may occure in your stucco

  • Earthquakes
  • Shifting soil
  • Settling structures
  • Extreme temperatures
  • Moisture

Regardless of how the crack came to be we just want them to go away. A professional painting contractor can handle this, you think? You come across an ad offering FREE estimates on exterior painting. You then call them and a few other painters to get estimates on fixing cracks and painting your stucco. One painter convinces you he knows how to fix those cracks right and they will never crack again. You hire the painter and a week later he is on your home preparing it for paint. Then IT comes out, the painter draws his caulking gun from their holster. The painter with confidence lays a heavy bead of caulking filling in those ugly cracks.

At first sight you believe it looks like they are thoroughly preparing the house. You even compliment the painter “Great job!” Then the next day the painter begins masking and brings out the spray equipment. All day the painter goes about painting the stucco. Although the cracks are still visible you think “the paint is still drying.”

The following day you evaluate the stucco and your concerns move to disappointment. The wall looks like a road map from the caulking profiling through. The caulked cracks stand out more than ever now.

Don’t be put in this position if you are looking for stucco crack repairs.

We offer caulk-less stucco repair. Our crew is trained to fill cracks with a cement base patching material. Depending on the surface the patch can be seamless. With skilled applicators and the right materials it is possible to restore your home it once was. The stucco preparation before painting is essential in beautifying your home.

Depending on the condition of your house with extreme cracking a whole wall may need to be re-surfaced. Some homes may qualify for an elastomeric coating. Not all substrates can be painted with elastomeric.

Before you hire any exterior painter be sure to contact us for your on-site consultation.

Redlands Historical Interior House Painting

This project consisted of painting crown molding, fire-place mantel, wall and ceiling paneling. This home was built-in the early 1940’s which means the surfaces has multiple layers of paint. Throughout the years the home has had many paint contractors. DEWITT PAINTING who started their painting company in 1946 were some of the previous painters that worked on this home. The brothers have since retired and the company is no longer in operation.

We thoroughly sanded everything and applied caulking were it was needed. To ensure adhesion we applied a primer coat on everything. We used Benjamin Moore Advance Satin on the finish for our three layers of top coat. On the horizontal area we applied four coats. We finished up with Benjamin Moore Aura on the plaster walls and ceilings.

Ewing Painting Launched In Coachella Valley

Ewing Painting Inc. (EPI) has a new location in the city of Palm Desert serving the entire Coachella Valley. I started my painting career in the desert with a company called Ken Ealy Painting, with Ealy we painted mostly new residential homes and apartments. I also worked for some of the greatest residential Paint Contractors in the Valley. Santa Fe Painting was where I learned of Epoxy Garage Floor Painting and Fine Finish Painting. One of my fondest memories was working with Martin Painting on Bob Hopes House in Palm Springs. I have such great respect for these Paint Contractors that taught me many different techniques of painting and how to deal with the extreme heat in the Valley. With these companies we painted homes in some of the most well-known country clubs such as Big Horn, Indian Wells Country Club, The Vintage, Marrekesh and the Valleys first Palm Desert Country Club. I am excited to return to the place that began it all for me in this paint world of mine.

California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) requires contractors who contract for $600 or more to carry a contractor license. To maintain a license a contractor must be bonded and comply with Workers Compensation laws. Hiring a contractor that is missing any three of these you can become liable for any injury that may occur on your property.

Workers’ compensation insurance is required for issuance of an active license, reactivation of an inactive license, and for the maintenance of an actively renewed license, unless the licensee does not employ anyone in a manner that is subject to California workers’ compensation laws (Business and Professions Code section 7125). Workers’ compensation insurance is not required for expired or inactive licenses. Licensees are required to submit proof of their workers’ compensation insurance coverage to CSLB. If the licensee does not employ anyone in a manner that is subject to California workers’ compensation laws, he/she is required to submit an Exemption from Workers’ Compensation form to CSLB.

Preparing your home for Exterior Painting

Getting exterior painting estimates? Painting the exterior is a lot less work for the homeowner than it would be for the painting of your interior home. Here are a few basic things to consider when getting your home ready for exterior painting.


 

Power washing Beaumont Ca

One of the first steps in painting the exterior is power washing. Make sure all windows and doors are closed and sealed. With a high power pressure washer, water can easily blast out a bedroom or living room if a window is left open. We have yet to experience this nor do we want to damage our perfect record. Please let the painters know if you have a leaky door or window. We can adjust our technic with less water and pressure to ensure no water intrudes through the leaky opening.

 

 

Ewing Painting Beaumont CaDuring the estimate process we will examine the exterior for any evidence of a leaky roof. Painting the home before fixing a roof leak can reduce the life span of the coating applied. If you notice or we discover a leaky roof at the estimate stage take action and get the roof repairs completed before beginning the painting project. This is more viable with elastomeric coatings but can effect any coating.


We once painted a home for a avid rose collector, In their front yard they had a garden on display that would take your breath away. The garden was no less than a foot away from the home being painted. How on earth can we paint around thorny rose bushes and not break them? I would have you know that only one stem was broken during the process of painting. Here is what we recommend, we ask to have the shrubbery, roses or any form of foliage to be trimmed back prior to the painting project starting. A good rule of thumb is to have have a one foot clearance from the surface, or in some cases, just enough where no branches or leaves are touching the surface being painted. We wouldn’t want a bush leaning on a freshly painted wall. We understand some foliage is impossible to cut back without killing the plant or tree. In this case we ask it to be trimmed as much as possible, we will then take our heavy duty drop cloths and use them to pull back the foliage. If the foliage leans back on the surface we will leave it tied up until the paint is dry to touch. This may deform the bush for a bit, but often times the bush is back to normal before the job is completed.
