Our Color Consultation
One thing to take into consideration is color selection. Color selection is crucial in painting, especially if you have a historic home. We will make sure that the right colors are used. We will ensure that the colors you want are approved by the ARB (Architectural Review Board).
A historic home's colors in Charleston can vary from Charleston Green, Haint Blue, Verdigris Green, Creole (Bermuda) Pink, Sang de Boeuf, and Yellow Ochre, to name a few. By having us get the colors approved by the ARB, you have the assurance that you'll have your paint job done right the first time.
We can go over colors on our Ipad with you, and after getting to know what you want, we will show you color chips or a "color wheel" of colors on it. We can apply samples on your home's interior or exterior to make sure it's the color you love.
Firstly you should know that you have to have the proper permits and color approvals before getting your historic home painted. Our company will get the proper permits needed to paint your historic home. We will also get the approved colors from the ARB.
We take the time to obtain the permits and approved colors for you, so you don't have to do it yourself. When it's time to paint your historic home, you want to make sure that it's painted by a professional; you want to make sure Mike's Custom Painting paints it.
Elevated Beach Front Properties
As much as we love historic homes, we also love elevated beachfront properties. Generally speaking, The color schemes are similar to historic properties.
These houses can be tall and require a ladder to paint your home properly. Don't put yourself at risk by climbing up a ladder and trying to paint your home yourself; it's too dangerous. We have the knowledge and skills to paint your home properly and exceed your expectations.
Our Exterior Painting Process
Our painting process consists of color consulting, cleaning, preparation, and professional painting. The color consultation allows us to understand what you are visualizing. We have a trained eye, but knowing what you want helps a lot.
We supply all the paint and will let you know which brand we will use. We will always give you our best advice on your color scheme, but ultimately, you will decide which colors you want.
The next step before work begins is to prep everything. First, we will cover all of your plants and concrete with tarps; there will never be loud music or foul language. We will treat your home with the utmost respect.
Additionally, we bring Port-A-Lets, a portable bathroom, so our crew doesn't need to use your home's restrooms. We will pressure wash your home's exterior, taking care to remove any black mold that is growing due to moisture.
The goal is to get it clean and clear of any black mold or other dirt and debris that may have built up over time. Ensuring that the exterior of your home is clean is a critical step in the process.
Next, we will scrape any loose paint, sand areas to feather it in, prime problematic areas, check for and caulk any cracks, fill in any wood knots, and replace wood rot.
After your home's exterior is prepped, we put down the first layer of paint and double-check our work. Putting down the first layer allows us to spot imperfections we may have missed in the preparation process.
We will correct imperfections, prime, and paint your home perfectly. Our attention to detail will ensure that your home's exterior paint job is done to the highest standards possible.
We also clean up after ourselves each workday and store equipment in designated storage areas out of harm's way. If your home only requires one elevation of painting due to sun exposure or just the porches and decks spruced up, we've got you covered as well.
The Interior Process
Similarly to our exterior process, we will protect your home's interior. We will cover flooring and furniture and take extra care to keep a clean work area. We will also bring our own LED lights to check and paint your home's interior walls professionally.
We take our time to ensure everything is properly prepped and completed on time. While prepping your home's interior walls, we will fill in nail holes, scrape any loose paint, check for cracks, caulk cracks, sand areas and feather them in, and prime any problematic areas.
Similarly to our exterior process, we will put on the first layer of paint, which will allow us to see if we missed anything. We are constantly double-checking our work to make sure your paint job is done to absolute perfection.
Finally, we prime and paint your walls. We take the time to meticulously prep your home's interior to ensure that you have the highest quality paint job in South Carolina.
Just like our exterior process, we will clean up after ourselves and store any equipment in a designated area out of harm's way. Check out this article from Mr. Moles Painting LLC on Why You Should Hire a Professional Painter.
