We maintain a $1,000,000 general liability insurance policy on all people working on your home. With safety in mind, we will do everything we can to avoid any injuries on the jobsite. However, accidents can happen. In the event of anything being broken during the process of the job, or any injuries that may occur, you don’t need to worry about losing any sleep. Our insurance policy will cover any accidents that arise.
All of our work is covered by an all inclusive warranty that lasts at least 2 years. If any areas on your home are not taken care of properly, you can be sure problems will show up in the first 2 years. We stand by our work, and will come out to fix up any problem areas that you may find.
We warranty quality work. That means we require all of the necessary prep work, and quality materials in order for us to back up the work. If any corners are cut, you may save money in the short run but we cannot guarantee that the job will last.
You can expect your 2 year warranty paint job to last anywhere from 5-15 years.
Your warranty will depend on the quality of the paint you choose. If you are interested in a longer warranty, ask us about the higher quality paints that are available!
Trim: It's very common for areas on the trim to begin peeling. Most trim that's peeling is real wood, such as 1x2's used on fascia, door trim, garage trim, or railings. In addition to any real wood on the house, any areas where moisture or snow accumulates. These areas take a lot of damage from moisture sitting on them and freezing then thawing, and constantly beating on the paint. Once the paint begins to peel, those areas on your home are exposed to the weather. When water gets into the wood and freezes, or water is constantly running through the wood, you'll begin to see the wood begin to get gray and rot. This leads to replacement, which can be very costly. Any areas on your home that are peeling will most likely be the same areas that will peel in the future. We recommend to take special care of these kinds of areas. By scraping off any peeling paint, we can be sure not to apply onto a surface that is already peeling. Sanding this area will smooth out the edge between what has peeled off and what has not peeled, and sanding will also create a better surface for us to apply the paint onto. Finally, after the area has been scraped and sanded, we recommend using a high quality primer to seal this area. The sanded wood creates a rough surface for the primer to bond to, and the primer will create a better surface for the paint to adhere and bond to than if we just apply paint to the wood.
Siding: Most siding in Colorado you will not find peeling. However, if any siding is peeling it can be very costly if not taken care of properly. On many homes that are first built, there is a very thin layer of paint applied. After 7-10 years, many times the underside of the siding will start to peel, specifically on the North side of the home. The North side of the home experiences less sunshine, so moisture is more likely to stick around longer. This moisture slowly wears away the paint on the underside of the siding boards. Each time it rains or snows, more moisture runs down the side of the house, wearing down the paint. The lower siding boards experience this more than the siding boards on the 2nd story. Eventually, the underside will start to peel, leading to an exposed board. If this is not taken care of, your siding boards will begin swelling and can lead to replacement. Replacing siding can be very costly. We recommend to sand off any peeling paint on the bottom of the siding boards. After sanding, we would prime those areas to seal up the boards before applying any paint. If this is not done properly, you can only expect the job to last about 2-4 years before these areas start to peel again. If done properly, you can expect it to last more like 5-7 years.
Cracking is one of the most common paint problems in Colorado. Builders use inexpensive and low quality caulking when painting your house. As the temperatures change, your house expands and contracts. As this happens over and over again, the caulking doesn't hold up and begins to break down and crack leaving your home exposed. Moisture can get into these cracks and goes back behind your boards. This leads to boards warping away from the house, or boards rotting from the inside out. In order to properly protect your home, we recommend resealing all of these cracks with a siliconized acrylic caulking. Silicone is more flexible than standard contractors caulking, so it will breathe with the house and last longer. However, paint will not stick to silicon caulking. This is why we recommend siliconized acrylic caulking that will hold paint, but also last longer
Fading or chalking is another very common problem in Colorado. Sunny days at high altitude blasts your home with UV rays breaking down the resin in the paint. Resin is the primary component in paint that protects the home. Pigment gives it the color. When the house starts to fade, this is an indication that the resin has broken down in the paint and there is minimal protection on your home. Without protection on the house, moisture will get into those boards (usually siding boards) and lead to warped siding boards which can be very expensive to replace. We recommend a power wash to wash off any dust and residue from the chalking. For sides that experience the most sunlight, we also recommend a second coat or a coat of primer for extra protection. This will provide a higher level of resin and protection for that side of the home, ensuring that it will not fade as quickly so you can avoid costly replacement costs in the future and a longer lasting paint job.
Moisture can sit in nail holes around the house and do damage to your siding. You'll see areas where there are nail holes beginning to swell due to moisture getting into those areas. If you only paint over these, there will still be a small pocket for water to sit. We recommend caulking these nails holes to leave an even surface for moisture to flow off of rather than sitting there breaking down the paint.
I cannot say enough about the team at Exemplary Painting. The level of skilled craftsmanship, attention to detail and value provided is truly exceptional. My background is in interior design with 15 years industry experience and I have never seen this level of quality and trade experience. I’d highly recommend them to all my clients, family and friends.
The Exemplary Painting team was amazing. They were so responsive and accommodating to my project and schedule. The estimate was more than fair, and then the crew went above and beyond. In addition to the quality work (and cleaning up!), they were all just so kind and a pleasure to work with. My project was outside, but I would certainly also consider them for interior work. Call them!
Both Matt and Bruce were great to work with. They were on time when we had appointments, responsive to requests and changes, followed up on any concerns, and had professional crew members in my home. They did a great job with painting a majority of my first floor. I highly recommend this company for interior painting! The bonus was the free consultation with a designer who assisted me in selecting just the right colors for my new home.
They spent a lot of time down to the most minute details to make our house superior looking compared to our neighbors. They cared about us and our project. We felt assured so a highly stressful job became wonderfully easy. My house was transformed beautifully!! I would highly recommend Exemplary Painting to all who want an exemplary transformation.
Exemplary Painting was one of the best contractors i have used. Their team showed up on time everyday, were professional, and wanted to make sure that I was happy with their work. Not only were their reasonably priced but their quality of work is amazing. My house looks ten times better and will use them for any other painting jobs I may have.
I've had Exemplary Painting at my home for two separate jobs in the past year. They did an amazing job both times! Their crew was on time, did all prep work and clean up, and were nice about everything. Even hung my really heavy mirror back up! I'm already planning my next project with them and recommend them highly to friends who need painting.
Exemplary painting did an amazing job painting the exterior of our new home! We were pretty stressed out about the color and process (as this is our first home) but they were amazing and really made the process fun! They were very professional throughout the whole process and got the job done quickly! Thank you Exemplary!!
Very happy with the guys at Exemplary Painting! I hired Exemplary to paint the interior of my 3-car garage in my newly built house. Bruce and Matt were very professional, quoted me a fair price, and very responsive to questions. The painter, Eric, did a great job masking everything and keeping everything clean. He was able to complete the whole job in a single day! I would highly recommend these local guys for any painting job big or small, indoor or outdoor. I'll be using them again for any other paint jobs at my new home.
Quality of work starting with the estimator through the end of the job was above expectation. There was direct communication with the owners, who put customer service at their top priority. The crew's attention to detail was immaculate. Definitely would call Exemplary Painting again and have already recommended them to friends!
My wife and I could not have been happier with Exemplary Painting. Bruce and Matt got us off to a solid start with booking and pricing. Excellent at keeping in contact and the included brochure with the initial meeting really shows you their professionalism. Up front and honest, no hidden fees. Then, we got to meet our painters. Their craftsmanship was second to none and we feel like we are in a brand new home. There’s nothing to think about when trying to decide who to hire for your painting job. Go with Exemplary Painting.
I had a great experience with Exemplary painting. They came out quickly to give us a quote. Their price was very fair and the painters did an excellent job. They kept our home very clean while they were working and finished much faster than we expected. I would highly recommend them!
Overall outstanding experience. After the initial meeting for an estimate one of the owners does a complete walk-through to clarify the job so there are no surprises. Part of the price is the opportunity to have a consult with a colorist. Her suggestions were excellent The painting crew I had was just outstanding. Trim work is beautiful. showed up every day for a full day. All for a fair price. I wish every house project was this professionally done.
Great work from the team at Exemplary Painting. They catered to my hectic schedule and we’re always happy to help with whatever I needed. Midway through the project I had some other things I wanted painted and they still were able to do it all within the proposed due date. Nothing but the best from Exemplary Painting and will use them again for future projects.
