At 518 Painters, we specialize in exterior painting services for homes and businesses. Our painting services include:

Our exterior painting process begins with a free consultation to assess your property’s needs. We’ll work with you to determine a timeline that suits your schedule and budget. Our team will then prepare your property for painting by removing debris, washing the surface, and making necessary repairs. We’ll then apply a primer coat before two coats of top-quality paint.
We use only the highest quality paints and stains on the market for our exterior painting projects. These paints are from reputable manufacturers such as Sherwin-William, Benjamin- Moore, and Behr.
At 518painters, we stand behind our work. We guarantee our exterior painting services for five years, ensuring you will be satisfied with the results for years. If you have any issues with our work, we’ll return it and make it right at no extra charge.
Our exterior painting services include the following:
Pressure washing to remove dirt, grime, and other debris from the surface of your home or business.
Exterior surface prep, including sanding, scraping, and caulking, to prepare the surface for paint application.
We also apply primer where needed and paint to protect your property from harsh weather conditions such as sun damage, wind erosion, or moisture penetration, which can lead to premature aging of surfaces.
The last step is applying a protective finish such as staining or sealing decks/fences to withstand exposure to rainwater without splintering due to rot damage caused by moisture buildup within wood structures (this will help extend their lifespan).
