The materials of the home’s facade should be considered before painting your home. When painting flat surfaces like siding or wood, you can opt for standard outdoor paint. When painting a textured surface like stucco or brick, “elastomeric” paint is a much better choice. This type of paint can stretch more than normal paint, which allows it to bridge over small gaps and crevices, painting smoothly over texture. Thornton Home Painting
The cost of paint is easy to calculate, and additional expenses rarely add much to the total cost of a project. The price of labor, however, rises steeply based on the complexity of the work. A simple one-story ranch in good repair is a breeze to paint, multi-story homes in poor condition or with extensive architectural features are much more challenging. See below the differences between the cost to paint a 2-story home vs a ranch style: Thornton House Painting
I had a notice from HOA complaining about the new color of my house. They gave me a competitive quote and repainted the whole house in the weekend after the quote. They knew that I just had the house painted and that would be an extra cost for me, so their bid was competitive and better than the bid I got from the original painter I had hired previously. The paint job was not only fast but with attention to details. Patrick also did a walk through, identifying minor touch ups to be done in the end. I recommend their service. Thornton House Painters
"weather was a factor in scheduling our exterior painting, but a soon as the sun came out, my house was done! It was nice to have an entire crew working, to finish the house by the end of the day. Professional, hardworking, thoughful crew, and I would hire them again in a second. Estimate was comparable to 3 other companies, Russ is easy to work with, flexible, and answered all my questions."
Better paints are thicker because they have a higher percentage of resin to water. You’ll pay more because there are more raw ingredients in the can, but each gallon covers more surface area and hides older colors more thoroughly. All-in-one paint and primer formulas are thicker versions of regular paint, and their coverage is exceptional. In the long run, you’ll save by using less, and the results will speak for themselves.

"Justin and his crew were top-notch, professional, and eager to please. Justin's bid was within the range of other bids, and his foreman, Victor, was a dream to work with. They were also excellent at clean, crisp lines. They painted the exterior of our large detached garage, which was no typical garage. Our 3 garage doors have X's as part of the garage door design, and they painted the X's in the trim color with beautiful precision. Not only that, but they painted the soffit on our covered deck, and below the soffit that extends 60 feet is a deep flower bed. They pressure washed the soffit and painted it, and you would never know that they had been there. Not a single part of the foliage was damaged. This is a class act company. Thanks Justin and your crew!" Thornton House Painting

Larry Palmer and crew rejuvenated our 1914 stucco bungalow. There was no part of the restoration project that they could not do and do at the highest standards of quality of workmanship. They grinded the flaking old stucco off, seal the walls, and painted it three coats of high-quality paints. They reworked our glass covered porch repairing the rotted timbers and replaced the broken panes of glass, They repaired a sagging corner eve (broken hip rafter).and rebuilt a stucco window box. Larry’s crew was punctual, hardworking, polite and considerate. Larry checked in with us daily to update us on the progress and get our input as needed. I would without reservations recommend Larry and his crew to anyone looking for quality craftsman workmanship.

Most siding material needs at least some sort of scraping, sanding or stripping before repainting. Chipped or bubbled paint not firmly adhered to a surface creates a weak area that leaves fresh paint more vulnerable to damage. Scraping removes large loose pieces. Sanding then smooths the edges of whatever paint remains. Keep in mind the process varies based on the type of siding. House Painting Thornton
Runland Painting just completed a mud, tape, prime, texture, and paint job on a bedroom/bathroom remodel we were doing for our parents. The crew did a better job on our drywall then drywall contractors we've used for other projects in the past. Everything looked amazing! Communication is great; straight and to the point. Very professional and timely company. Thornton House Painters
Generally speaking, a gallon of paint will cover about 350 square feet. If this is the first time drywall is painted, it will soak up more paint. And remember to factor in whether your job will require one or two coats of paint. Dark and bright colors will require more coats of paint, as will painting a lighter color over an existing darker color. Divide the paintable wall surface by 350 to determine how many gallons of paint you will need to buy. If there’s an odd number with less than .5 leftover, round down, if it’s over .5 round up.

I solicited 7 bids for my getting my house and garage repainted. Far and away, Runland Painting had the most professional bid and a reasonable price. I was very impressed by their technical expertise and how they explained it to a non-expert like myself. The actual job turned out great. John responded promptly to all my concerns and his team worked extremely hard. I would recommend them to anyone looking for exterior paint work. Thornton House Painters
