What things should alert me when my house needs to be painted?

Why should I hire a company like Tribble Painting instead of doing it myself?

Is all siding, fascia, soffits, and gutters paintable?

1. Things that should alert you that your house needs to be painted are:

-       Discoloration

-       Fading

-       Mildew

-       Chalky

-       Bare Wood

-       Failure of caulk

-       Rotten wood (if you see rotten wood is you waited too long)

Why should I hire a painting company like Tribble to paint your house instead of doing it yourself.

For those do-it-yourself people out there, house painting is not technically difficult for a youto perform, but it can be time-consuming, aggrovating, messy and physically demanding, not to mention dangerous. Hiring a professional painting company like Tribble, takes these concerns out of the picture. Tribble Painting works around your schedule and trys to complete each project within the estimated period. Tribble understands the hassles of having other people at you home while you are at work, or if your family is at home. That is why strive to meet or beat our deadlines.

The biggest factor when considing try the project on your own is the size of the job. The old paint usually has to be scraped off before any new primer or paint can be put on the walls or exteroir project. This scraping and prepping phase is not a fun nor easy process. Plus if your project is an exterior one than reaching those hard-to-reach areas is extremely dangerous. Check out our testimonials page to see what other home owners have said.

Is all siding, fascia, soffits, and gutters paintable?

All siding, fascia, soffits, and most gutters, can be painted.  As with all substrate it has its own idiosyncrasies in terms of how often it needs to be painted, what happens when the paint fails, what prep needs to be done when painted originally or repainted. Aluminum, hardwood, composite all involve something different.
