Exterior Painting

As the owner of Advantage Handyman Services, I constantly hear customers say they get cheap estimates to paint the exterior of their home. I tell them "unless you are going to sit in a lawn chair and wathc them, you don't know what your getting". There are too many short cuts that can be taken on a paint job. We always caulk, sand and prime needed areas. Also, if a company does not have a carpenter on staff, be careful. When this company find wood rot, which is common, they are just going to paint over it. We send a carpenter to the job to perform any wood rot replacement before the paint job if finished. You Get What You Pay For, Trust ME!
