House Painting

Mike Moody Painting: Mike just completed painting our home and we are VERY pleased with his work. He is a real craftsperson! Mike spent a full week preparing the house. He scraped and sanded the siding. When finished, he primed the repairs. Before painting the house, Mike completely primed the house a second time so there would be a good bond between the finish coat and the siding. He recommended a more reflective finish for the facia which takes the brunt of the damage from the sun. Before we began this project, I wondered if we should re-side the house, as there was severe damage to many of the panels. Mike assured me that he would be able to repair this and renew the finish. Mike works by himself with assistance from his wife. By the way he is a neighbor, living near Booksin School.

If you are thinking of painting your home, give MIke a call. If you are looking for the lowest cost bid you can get, then Mike will not likely match the "spray 'n pay" crews who walk the neighborhood. But if you are looking for a quality paint job, reasonably priced for the work done, then give Mike a call. Liane and I are very happy with the quality of his work as well as his work ethic.
