What should I look for when I am looking for a reliable house painter near Strongsville, OH?

It is not easy to find a contractor you can trust with your home. Someone who will show up when they say they will and be courteous, professional and knowledgeable. Oh, and of course be affordable. 

Here are a few tips on what to look for specifically if you live in Strongsville or one of the surrounding communities. When talking about hiring painters for exterior work there are important things to consider depending on what type of siding you have. Many homes in Strongsville have cedar wood siding or trim that requires some special care. Since cedar is a soft wood, the painter needs to be careful when power washing. They will also need to use very high quality caulk as the wood will tend to shrink and expand a lot as the temperatures change. 

If your home does have wood and you are in Strongsville, it is most likely cedar or T-1-11 panels. Both of these should be stained with a top-quality solid color stain. You'll want to choose a color that is on the warmer, "earthy" side if your home has wide wood plank siding. 

If your home is aluminum or vinyl you can also paint it to change the way the exterior looks. Be sure to talk with the painters you are getting estimates from about their washing procedures and warranties. Luckily, there is not a ton of prep work to do on aluminum or vinyl but thoroughly washing it is vital. We hand scrub with a soft-bristle brush and power wash to get rid of all surface dirt before painting. We also stand behind our work on aluminum and vinyl with a 10-year warranty. 

Getting estimates and hiring a painter can be overwhelming so be sure to come up with a list of questions beforehand. There is a lot more to consider besides just the price.
