The Paint Job
College Works Painting always provides a quality service with high-quality products. Our premium service plan is designed to provide you with the absolute best products on the painting market today, along with even more extensive preparation to enhance paint adhesion to the surfaces of your home. This upgrade will add two to four years to the life of the paint job, and will also make the color you have chosen appear richer and brighter.
1. PRESSURE WASHING OF ENTIRE HOUSE
Using specialized power-washing equipment enables us to remove:
- Mineral deposit
The cleaner the surface, the better the paint will bond.
2. FULL PRIME COAT
The purpose of paint is to beautify and protect your home.
- Latex-based primer paint is applied to provide an extra level of beauty and protection
- Primer is used as a base coat due to the epoxy-bonding agents which are designed to stick to the applied surface
- Even and thicker surface
3. FINISH COAT
- The top coat will be 100% acrylic paint
- More durable than vinyl paint or other latex-based paints, and forms a harder shell as it dries and cures
- This paint costs 50-60% more per gallon than the top-of-the-line latex blend paints
4. THE GUARANTEE
We are so confident in these products and in our workmanship that we have a five year guarantee on materials and a two year guarantee on labor. This means you pay nothing for any materials needed to repair your paint job for five full years. For the third, fourth, and fifth year you pay only the cost of labor at $24/hour. We challenge you to find any professional painter to come out for less than $50/hour for minor repairs.
No paint job is bulletproof, minor cracks and peeling may occur. However, an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure. A quality paint job will last for up to 10 years. The problem is that most people allow the problem to get worse by not touching up the job. These minor paint failures are made worse by exposure to moisture and sunlight, and extensive peeling and damage to the surface may increase exponentially over the next few seasons. Our average warranty claim takes less than 4 hours. Most painters are not willing to come out for such a small job. If you call us, we will be willing to come out every year to inspect your paint job and perform the necessary touch-ups.
5. SIX YEAR "PRICE FREEZE"
If you decide to have your home painted again at the end of our service plan, we will paint it for the same original contract price. Paint industry averages, accounting for inflation, show prices rising approximately 5% per year. This means that the cost of your next paint job could be 30% less than that of our average customer six years from now.
