Police Looking For Bogus Contractors Who Preyed On Couple

I read a story today about bogus contractors in North Carolina that conned and elderly couple out of $2,700 in remodeling fees. I thought I would put together a quick recap of how others can avoid this from happening to themselves and to their parents or children. One of the most common tactics for a scam artist is to promise the lowest price on a project that should be a lot more expensive. Be wary of any contractor who quotes far below everyone else. There is a reason they are so cheap. It may be because they are not paying insurance, don’t have a license, don’t pay taxes, or are simply not planning on doing the job at all.

The times at which these scam artists come out is generally after a storm or significant event where many homes have suffered damage and are in need of repair. This allows them to go home to home, potentially scamming dozens of people. To protect yourself from a sham contractor, avoid hiring someone who miraculously shows up to perform work, always ask for references, follow up on the references, and most of all: NEVER pay in cash.

Exterior Paint Preparation – Sealing and Filling Cracks Prior To Priming

As painters we have this urge to make every picture on our website look really pretty and show the finished product, but the truth is that a quality paint job is more about what is underneath the paint than just how it is rolled on. A good exterior paint job requires a lot of prep work. Before the first paint is rolled on the house it needs to be pressure washed, sealed, and cracks need to be filled with putty. For this weeks blog posts we figured we would show some of our prep work instead of the finished product.

This house out in Windemere, Florida, had common weathering problems that many homes in Central Florida have. Rusting and cracks appeared on various surfaces of the home, both big and small, and are must be properly planned for in the preparation process. Before the and paint was put on the home, we sealed all of the cracks, and spot primed the rusted areas. This is a normal process that we do to make sure that the priming and final painting of a home will last. If not cared for, the paint job will quickly deteriorate to its previous form. By doing this intricate prep-work, we have effectively extended the life of the paint, and value of the home, for many more years.

Beth Berry – Duration Satin – Celebration, FL

Beth Berry has a beautiful home, but it needed an exterior touch up. Beth chose Duration Satin for the job. Her is a recap of the work.

We started like always with a pressure clean to remove all paint oxidation and mildew to make sure the new coverage had good adhesion. Once dry we hit it with a sealer and then repaired all the cracks. We added a primer and this hit it with the Duration Satin. The house looks new, and Ms. Berry couldn’tbe happier.
