Northern Kentucky Painter Restores Wood Bridge over Creek❗

Image
This is a beautiful Wood bridge I restored and painted in 2015. .....    Not a massive structure by any means. Stretching over this small creek presented some challenges.    I would have almost wished the creek was actually deeper so that we could have gotten under it better. Doing repair and painting near the bottom side close to the creek meant getting your head wet...lol.    The grey bridge had PEELING paint in areas, we scraped it down with putty knives and a wire brush in crevices. It had a few planks that the sun had popped loose from expansion and contraction cycles . So we put those back down with proper exterior deck screws.  It was then soft washed with a professional formula to remove mildew growth, dirt and grime.  As far as Restoration went. That's all it really needed... this little bridge is rarely used.  The Painting of this bridge has a interesting fact. ......   This is the last wooden structure that I have painted in Northern Kentucky

Laundry Room makeover with Painting and New Washer and Dryer Set❗

    If your getting a new washer and dryer , it may be a great time for you to also reset the room by having your painter paint it for you.  The laundry pictured above in Florence, Kentucky is soon to get a new Washer and Dryer. It will be delivered in a few days. Hooked up and the old ones hauled away.   My client wanted me to get in there and paint it before this happened. So that once the pair does arrive. The room will have a brand spanking new look.   It does not hurt that also we was able to update the coating technology in the room to give it some distinct advantages over the builder grade paint that was present on the walls.    We came in and painted the trim and doors semi-gloss white - the Ceiling Flat white , and the Walls got a Color called 'Naturel' in Cashmere®️ Low Lustre ..... all Sherwin William's Coatings.    My Company ExtraPrep Pro Painting's Proprietary [Mildew-Guard] was added to all the coatings ... protects against the growth of mild

'INTERIOR PAINTING' A Tough sell to Northern Kentucky residents in Winter ❗

Image
INTERIOR PAINTING HAS TURNED OUT TO BE ONE OF THE TOUGHEST SERVICES FOR ME TO SELL.        I'm trying to understand why ❓ Come winter ❄ every year I actually look forward to the challenge of selling it along with a more laid back schedule.  In the Northern Kentucky market it is just slower in the Winter for Residential Painters regardless if you have work or not. There is just less to do.  I look forward to that reprieve somewhat.    However come January every year without fail , it dawns on me just how daunting of a task it is to sell Interior Painting to Residents here.  Extremely hard.    I went to a quote the other night and bid a interior that I would normally price around 3500.00 for 2000.00 and the people looked at me like I was crazy.  Atleast 3 days work possibly 4 for 2 people.  I'm puzzled that they was not drooling to sign a contract right then and there. More than likely they will reach back to me in April when they get their tax return on
