why choose us

Power Washing looks simple, but don’t be fooled. There are very important techniques to a successful cleaning and bleach wash. Amateurs SHOULD NEVER BE USED.

Power washing can be very dangerous if not performed properly. High pressure water can go through many surfaces instantaneously. With a 3000-psi pressure washer, you could carve your name in the side of your house within seconds if you weren’t careful. (Highway crews actually use a version of a pressure washer to cut the holes for dynamite blasting when digging for highway construction.)

we recommend you

Don’t try to save money by cutting out preparation. Most professionals will agree that proper prep is the single most important component in the longevity of a paint job. Conversely, improper preparation can result in almost instant coating failure.

Don’t leave cracked clapboards or vertical trim without repair or replacement. Moisture could penetrate behind the surfaces and result in paint failure.

we believe

When it comes to paint, more is not necessarily better. Each manufacturer has a recommended thickness for each coating. Most agree that 2 coats are optimum for surface protection. But over time, each additional coat over the home’s original siding actually adds weight that pulls from the surface, eventually causing peeling.

Continuous year after year paint peeling problems are rarely caused by the material used. In most cases, moisture is the reason. We attempt to locate the source of moisture, and present the possible remedies to our customers.

we suggest you

Don’t store touch-up paint in the garage. It will freeze in winter and reduce its shelf life.


You are missing out as a customer if you don’t get a chance to walk through the job at the time of completion. Our foreman and project managers try to estimate at what point in the day they will be finishing the work, so that our customers can have that last say, and get things done “just to their liking.” Many customers have told us time and time again, that “It’s the little things that count.” We hear you.
