Pruning of Brush
It is preferred this step be done by the home owner. Extensive pruning of some shrubs may be required to facilitate painting.
Gutters in good condition are sanded to “etch” the surface insuring the paint will adhere and bond to the surface.
Gutters and downspouts are scraped of loose paint and spot prime. Some houses require more stripping and scraping than others. Complete stripping is subject to additional charge.
Homes with excessive mold or mildew present may result in an additional charge for removal.
Holes or Cracks

When stucco walls or the foundation is to be painted, dirt is removed several inches below the dirt line, and the wall brushed clean.
Remove and replace house numbers, mailboxes, lights, etc. Mask window and door openings, and concrete, to avoid overspray and paint splatter.
Verify the type of paint used previously to determine the best type of paint and primers to be used for maximum adhesion. Oil-to-Latex conversions require an additional charge.

OUR REVIEWS SAY ENOUGH
It's a rare thing these days to get such thorough service. Steve and his guys at Empire Painting are some of the most professional and friendly people you could ask for. They did an excellent job; from power washing the house, to using multiple paint colors on my 2,000 sq ft stucco home, to checking back about our satisfaction with the end result. They excel at paying attention to detail and are super friendly to work with. Steve knows his trade and if you are in the market for an exterior house painter, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!! - Mel R. - San Francisco

Not only would I recommend Empire Painting to any friend or relative looking to upgrade the appearance and value of their home, I honestly feel I would be doing them a disservice if I didn't. The price was exactly what I was initially quoted, and the job took precisely as long as I was told it would take. Considering the quality of their work, that cost was more than reasonable, and the painter who refinished both the exterior and interior of my house was friendly, professional, and clearly a master of his craft. - Jason G. - Redding, CA
