Residential and Commercial Painting
All year round, your wood deck or fence is exposed to rain, snow, sleet, ice, and direct sunlight. It’s important to re-stain your deck to help prevent the impact that these elements will have on the wood.
When gutters are packed with leaves, sticks and other debris, this can cause clogs and result in rain water that causes leaks, water damage, and premature wood rotting. Clogged gutters can also lead to ice dams during the winter.

APP Interior Painting Process
Whether you hire us, or want to try your hand at painting an interior surface, following our process is the best way to get the professional results you desire. This is the process we follow on all our interior painting projects to ensure each one meets our standards.
All furniture and blinds need to be removed away from the painting surface – you can elect to have us complete this for you or you can save some coin and do it yourself.
Any surface that will not be painted will be covered or masked off before the project. Plastic will cover any furniture or floors to eliminate possible damage.
Holes, cracks or missing texture will be repaired in drywall before the painting process begins.
The surface must be clean and dry before we begin – we will dust down all surfaces to ensure the best paint adhesion.
Any cracks around baseboards, windows or doors will be re-caulked if and when necessary.
· SCRAPING AND SANDING.
All loose paint will be scraped away and surfaces prepped where needed before painting begins.
Normally, we spray all ceilings first to apply an even coat, then paint walls with two coats of paint. We use 12” or 18” rollers, depending on the job, keeping a wet edge and rolling from floor to ceiling and ceiling to floor.
· CUTTING IN.
Painting the edges and “cutting in” takes patience and experience to do it correctly. Our process uses long strokes to get professional results.
· CLEAN UP.
All coverings and masking will be removed by our team once the project is completed. No mess caused by of team will be left behind.
Every interior painting job is inspected for quality by the lead/foreman of the team and you will have the opportunity to review it before you sign off on the job.
“Let us help you maintain your investments”
Skipping even one step in this process can leave you with a sub-par paint job. Our teams follow every detail of this process to T, using top quality equipment and products with proven techniques for a professional finish. For your next painting project, leave the details to us for a professionally painted surface every time.

APP Exterior Painting Process
An exterior painted surface that will look fantastic and withstand the elements requires adherence to a strict set of guidelines. At Affordable Painting & Power Washing, we have perfected this process. Our expert team follow a precise method that is combined with high-quality products and specialized techniques to ensure every exterior paint job meets our standards and exceeds our customer’s satisfaction.
· POWER WASHING.
An exterior paint job requires a clean surface. We power wash every exterior to remove loose paint, debris and dirt to ensure a lasting professional finish. This is one of the most important steps period.
Windows and trim that will not be painted are masked off to protect the surfaces.
We use specialized coating called DRY-LOCK that waterproofs the foundation. This primer prevents peeling from moisture, which is common on moisture-rich foundations.
Any leftover peeling paint after the house wash is scraped away to create a smooth surface.
Any drywall on patios or stucco texture that needs repair is completed before the painting begins.
All cracks around windows, doors and fascia are caulked to seal these areas.
Every exterior that requires a primer will be applied before the paint to create an adhesive surface. Very important step.
For excellent coverage, we apply paint both horizontally and vertically. If requested and your contract specifies we may also back roll or apply a full second coat as well.
We carefully apply two coats of paint to trim for the best results.
· GARAGE & ENTRY DOORS.
All doors are sprayed for a smooth finish.
· METAL SURFACES.
Any metal or accents that need paint are done last using precise painting techniques.
· CLEAN UP.
Our crews never leave a mess behind. All coverings, masking, paint chips and other debris are removed once the job is completed.
The foreman for your crew will carefully inspect the completed project to ensure it meets our high standards before we ask you to review the work for a final sign-off at completion.
