A lot of people may not realize the impact that color has in our everyday lives — most noticeably when it comes to design. The colors that you choose for the walls inside your home can set a mood, pull a room together or make it feel disjointed, and even affect us in a physiological manner.

When painting the exterior of your home, the preparation of painted surfaces is one of the largest contributing factors in a quality paint job. For most homes, prep includes: washing, masking, scraping loose paint, sanding bare wood, priming failures, and filling cracks and gaps with caulking. At Ace of Diamonds Painting, our goal is to have the job last as long as possible; using high-end materials helps, but preparation is what will really help the new paint hold up to Colorado’s harsh weather conditions. Often times, even the best pre-paint prep will not suffice, and there are boards that should be replaced prior to the normal prep work. Evidence that necessitates full board replacement can be: rot, holes, missing chunks, depressions, sagging, large cracks, or a general look of dilapidation. The good news is that we can replace a lot of these boards for an additional cost as part of preparing the home for paint! In some cases, varying circumstances prevent us from completing the replacement in-house, because we highly recommend doing so if your goal is to have a long lasting paint job, we will work with you to find the right solution to these specific issues.
