Why Textbook Painting
For Exterior Paint Jobs
If you are in the Cleveland area looking for the best exterior painting contractors, you have come to the right place. That’s a hefty claim to make, but we back it up with the best warranties on exterior painting.
We have a ten-year warranty on vinyl and aluminum siding and our industry leading Four-Year Worry Free Guarantee on other exterior projects.
Our Four-Year Worry Free Guarantee gives you the peace of mind that the paint job is going to last as long as possible. In the Cleveland area, paint will typically last about 7-12 years outside. The biggest factors are the age of the home and the number of underlying coats of paint as well as how well ventilated the inside of the home is. Our Worry Free Guarantee means we will proactively inspect our work every spring for the next four years and correct any problems at no cost.
We know you are busy so we take ownership of the exterior painting on your home. We want to be your exterior house painter for life and we want to know if there are any problems on the paint job so we can correct them. Not only do you want the paint to last as long as possible but you want it to look great as well. We have a lot of solutions to help you select a color that you will be thrilled with (and your neighbor’s will be jealous of).

Exterior House Paint Colors
The magic is in the color!
Whether you’re looking to sell or just wanting something different, changing the outside color of your house can make a huge impact. There are a couple things you should keep in mind. Think about your surroundings – the color schemes of the other homes on your block, the flora and fauna that surrounds your home, and which hues might complement your area’s seasonal colors. You can also try making your front door pop, with either small color touchups or adding an eye-catching hue. There are definitely colors that work better than others, so make sure you do some research before just picking one. We’d be happy to help with our free color consultation when booking a project!

Different prices everywhere! Why?!
When looking for an exterior painter, you’ll notice there’s a range of different prices. A good portion of them should be very similar though. But still, why are they different? Well, there’s a lot of reasons that could factor into this – such as the types of products they’re using, number of people they have on the job, or the amount of prep work required. It’s important to know when it’s ok to compromise on an area, and when it’s not.

The most important part for a long lasting, good looking paint job!
For a high quality, long-lasting paint job, your surface needs to be clean, dry and dull. However, the other most important part is the primer. If you don’t select the correct quality one, you could run into some issues, such as the color being uneven, stains or other imperfections showing through, or peeling paint.
For a more comprehensive guide on primers and why they’re important, read this post – A Primer on Exterior Primers.

There is no better place to enjoy a warm summer evening than on a beautiful wood deck. The challenge is keeping it looking beautiful as deck staining is a tedious project that needs to be done every year or two. Plus there are so many options from clear sealants, to semi-transparent and solid color stains to newer elastomeric options.
Knowing which products to use and how to apply the stain makes all the difference in the world. Improperly cleaning or staining your deck will lead to peeling and much more maintenance over time. Decks often get a bad rap lately because of the amount of work they require, but when you trust your deck to us, you know that we are going to do what is required to get the best results.
Your deck is an extension of your home and for many families it is the main dining room and family room throughout the summer. Staining your deck regularly not only will increase its beauty, but will also protect the wood from moisture and sunlight, ensuring that you and your family will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
