Part of the allure of vinyl siding is that it never has to be painted — the vinyl alone is protective. But more than one homeowner has found that it fades over time — especially darker shades exposed to the pounding sun. The good news is that vinyl siding can be painted to change the color or refresh the look of your home, and the better news is — it’s cost-effective. House Painting Thornton

Paint made for the exterior of a house is formulated differently from that destined for interior paint jobs. Exterior house paint is blended to withstand rain, wind, and varying temperatures, while interior house paint is formulated to hide minor imperfections such as brush marks, handprints, and scuffs. Interior paints can be made washable for convenience, and doesn’t require exposure to light to cure. House Painting Thornton
Before you start a painting job either on the interior your home, or the exterior, you’ll need to estimate how much paint to buy. There are various factors to take into consideration when deciding how many gallons of paint to buy for your project. You’ll need the square footage of the area that needs to be painted, while keeping in mind that doors and windows require a different type of paint from the walls. Thornton House Painters

I can't begin to describe how great of an experience we had working with Larry on an exterior restoration of our house. Our 1910 craftsman home had a big issue with paint bubbling due to many layers of incompatible types of paint used over the years. Our home still had the original cedar siding and we couldn't imagine replacing it. At first we didn't know where to start. Most contractors were either painters that didn't handle the type of surface preparation needed to deal with paint bubbling or siding specialists that only provided removing and replacing siding. Just when we were losing hope of finding the right contractor, we read a very positive review on Angie's list about how Larry and his team were able to help someone else in a similar situation. I called Larry the next day and I am so happy I did. Although we originally reached out to Larry about painting, we were very happy to learn that his team could tackle a number of other projects for our home's exterior as well. We worked with Larry to come up with a holistic plan for a complete exterior restoration that fit our budget. Coming up with the plan was a fun process that got us very excited about the project. It also made us realize how passionate Larry is about making old homes shine! In addition to the difficult surface preparation needed before painting, Larry's team also handled a number of repairs. A section of siding had rotted and they were able to replace just that section with new cedar siding (preserving as much as possible). The back corner of the house is an addition and was originally done with a different siding that didn't match the cedar used for the rest of the house. Larry's team figured out how to replace the siding in this section with new cedar siding and have it blend in seamlessly with the original by interweaving it. The result far exceeded our expecationation of what was even possible! Larry's team also stained our fence, fixed window frames, repaired gates, and the list goes on. The front porch is where we worked with Larry to go beyond repairs and try something new and exciting. The biggest change was replacing a small window on the porch with an incredible piece of antique stained glass that Larry helped source. The stained glass was much taller and skinnier than the original window. Larry's team was able to create a new window frame and install the glass in record time. Larry went the extra mile to make sure the lighting was perfect and had back lighting installed behind the window. The ceiling of the porch was also replaced with new cedar panels with a translucent high gloss stain. Larry's team also created custom caps for the posts on the stairs leading up the porch to replace the warped metal ones that were there previously. The new caps are beautifully topped with amber glass. The combination of the stained glass, the glass caps, improved lighting and the refraction off the high gloss ceiling transformed the space into something really special. We couldn't be happier. I strongly recommend Larry and his team to anyone looking to restore an older home or add improvements in keeping with the home's original style. Thornton Home Painting
"Spraying NorthWest is a reliable, consistent, professional team that did a fantastic job on the exterior of my house. What I appreciate most about their work is that it's neat, easy and they offered up some great suggestions when I was on the fence with some colors. They were affordable and on time. I would definitely recommend them and would use them again." Thornton Home Painting
Runland Painting recently painted the interior of our home. From the estimate to completion this was the most professional contractor we have hired to date. Their bid was not the cheapest but after seeing the quality it was well worth it. The crew was great to have around and left our home clean everyday. Very excited about our new paint job and would recommend this company to anyone in need of a painter.
Climate is another factor to consider. Sunlight, wind, rain and salty weather can all wear out exterior paint. Oil-based paint is durable against wind, rain and temperature changes, but sunlight tends to degrade it. Alkyd paint chalks and sheds very thin layers when it begins to wear. Latex paint is the more durable option for very sun-drenched and relatively dry climate areas. Latex paint with high vinyl content should be avoided, however. Acrylic resin is by far the more durable binder for outdoor latex paint. Thornton Home Painting
Every home has details that can be accentuated for amazing looking visual appeal and first impressions. The key is to not make the wrong details stand out. Entryways, windows, shutters and other details on the home can be painted to make their design noticeable. However features such as gutters, downspouts, external air conditioning systems, unevenly proportioned windows and protruding garage doors should not be completed to draw attention to them as this will provide a negative results.

I can't say enough great things about Saints of Paint. They went above and beyond my expectations in every possible way. They painted the entire interior of my house and the work that they did was perfect, thorough, and very reasonably priced. Not one detail was missed. On top of that, each member of the team is very friendly, honest, and considerate. Thornton Home Painting
If you have ornamental or colorful trees, shrubbery or floral selections around your home you should figure their colors into the color scheme selection that is made. These landscaping attributes will have an effect on how appealing the property is as a whole throughout the year. Homes that have a great deal of trees can make the property darker and cast shadows onto the home. Individuals will want to avoid darker colors for these situations. Thornton House Painting
I used Runland Painting to paint the exterior of my home. I am very pleased with the job they did. John was very easy to work with and very responsive. He always answered my questions and responded to any concerns that I had quickly. The crew always arrived on time and when they were scheduled. They communicated very well and always let me know what they would be working on. It was a big job and well executed. I have had so many neighbors come by and comment on how beautiful it looks. I couldn't be happier with Runland Painting and I would definitely recommend them. They also completed my job earlier than planned. Thank you John!
"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."

"PacificPro Painting did a fabulous job painting my house and the price was very reasonable! They were friendly, prompt, professional and efficient. Due to weather and an unexpected life event, I had to ask that the project timeline be altered, but they worked with me and followed through with such great detail and care in reinventing my home s look. I m so happy I went with their services and plan on using them in the future for a deck project! Thank you SO much PacificPro! "
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
