More Than Walls: Other Things Professional Painting Services Can Do

professional painting services

When most homeowners hire a painter they are looking to change up the color or maintain their exterior trim. But walls and window casings are just the beginning when it comes to professional painting services. Any professional painting company worth its weight in gallons offers additional services to complement your paint refresh. 

Fireplace looking dated and clashing with your new furnishings? Craving a brighter kitchen with white cabinets but not the hassle that comes with renovating your entire kitchen? Or maybe you had a new beautiful fence installed and it’s already starting to fade to gray. 

Let’s learn about five ways (some you might know, and some you may not!) the pros can enhance the beauty of your home.

1. Want to Whitewash Red Brick? Brick and Masonry Painting 

The 80s are calling and asking for their red brick fireplaces back! Red brick fireplaces have long been a staple in American homes, however, as styles have evolved, fireplaces are often stuck in the past.

If you want to modernize your fireplace, you could replace the masonry with a new material. Or, for a more budget-friendly fix, you could paint your brick in a classic white or modern gray for a fresh take to match your furnishings. If you decide to DIY it, brick painting involves scrubbing and priming the surface before you start painting. The good news is a qualified professional painter in Memphis can do this as part of your larger home painting project.

If you want an eye-catching transformation for your home’s exterior, white brick continues to be a popular choice. 

We love this look because it’s both classic and fresh, especially when paired with black trim. Or you can paint your door in a bold color to pop against the white backdrop. In case you missed it we have an entire post dedicated to choosing the right white exterior house paint for brick. 

At Riggins Painting, we have a wealth of experience as masonry and brick painters and use Sherwin-Williams Loxon XP Masonry coating. It’s weather-resistant, doesn’t require a primer, and can be tinted to the shade of your choice.

2. Sprung a Leak? Drywall Repair and Painting

If you’ve had a leak in your house and are left with damage to your drywall you might be wondering who to call. You could call a handyman to make the repair, however, a company that offers professional painting services is a better choice for the best cosmetic result. A residential painting company can 1) repair your damaged drywall or trim 2) blend the new sections with the existing ones and 3) match the paint. This is especially important if you have textured ceilings and want a flawless finish. Because at the end of the day, you want it to look like it never happened, right?

3. Refresh for Less? A Kitchen Cabinet Painter Can Help

The kitchen is often the first place homeowners start if they are looking to update their space. After all, the kitchen is where we gather over meals (and spend a lot of time preparing and cleaning up after them!)

Kitchen renovations are also popular for people who have just bought a new home or are getting ready to list one. 

Have you thought about refinishing and repainting your cabinets? As you can imagine, the cost to paint kitchen cabinets is much less than a replacement, without the stress of a full kitchen renovation. Whether you want to brighten with white or try out tuxedo cabinets, hire a professional kitchen cabinet painter to tackle your kitchen transformation. Professional painting services can let you know if your cabinets are candidates for painting depending on their condition.

4. Rotted Wood? Time for Trim Repair

If you’re having your home’s exterior painted, you should choose a professional painting company that offers trim repair, not just paints over rotten wood. Wood rot is typically caused by leaks, mold, and mildew. 

If you take the time to inspect the trim around your house you’ll likely find signs of rotting wood along wood sills, fascia, or soffits, and at the base of support columns. A painter can use a ladder to access some of the more challenging areas around your home to identify damage. Now they can address any exterior trim repair before painting it.

5. Protect Your Planks and Pickets: Deck and Fence Staining

If you’ve recently installed a fence or built a deck you’ve made a big investment. If you haven’t had it stained you’re not protecting it. The ideal time is one to two months after you’ve installed it.

The benefits of deck and fence staining include:

  • Shielding it from the sun’s UV rays that fade your wood, turning it a grayish hue.
  • Protecting it from moisture that can lead to mold, mildew, or algae growth.
  • Matching the wood to your home’s siding, trim, or brick.

Before you stain your fence or deck make sure you power wash any stains off. Did you know that a professional painting services company can powerwash, seal, and stain your fence or deck?
