Once you have picked out your paint your home will need to be carefully prepped. If we apply your paint onto a dirty house it will not go on smoothly. We take the time to pressure wash your house to get it nice and clean. Sometimes we have to work hard to get off different stains and dirt off your home. We always make sure that your home if completely prepped before we start.

Use Enough Paint to Cover Surfaces Being Painted!

When the exterior of your home is painted you will only get the look you are hoping for if the paint fully covers your home. Many painters will try and paint your home and complete the project in as few of coats as possible. This can result in areas of your home not fully getting covered by the new paint that you have selected. Here at McKays Painting we make sure that we paint as many coats as needed to help get everything covered nicely.
