Platinum Painting of Arlington is highly familiar with all of the factors that need to be considered before embarking on an exterior painting project. For instance, have you considered climate? Whether we’re talking about heavy rains, bracing wind, or even too much sunlight, it’s important to keep in mind that paint can become worn down over time because of these elements. Additionally, areas of the house (such as skirting) that regularly experience a great deal of moisture will need an extra-special approach as well. If you have any distinctive shrubbery in the yard (such as bright flowers or colorful trees), it’s also important to make sure that their shades aren’t at a stark contrast to your new home’s color(s). Don’t worry – our team will consider all of these elements and so many more during the planning stages.

The Steps of Exterior Painting

  • Initial Set Up & Preparation –The first step is to power wash all of the surfaces that will be painted in order to remove unpleasant substances like sand, mildew, dirt, and more. Additionally. Loose chips of paint will be eliminated through hand scraping. Please plan to shut off your sprinklers, relocate any outside plants and pieces of art, and secure pets. You can learn more about the preparation phase by visiting our Getting Started page.
  • Priming – Our team will always use a high-quality primer to get your house properly prepared for its makeover and ensure a long-lasting result.
  • Painting – We’ll get to work on painting with the client’s chosen shade and gloss level. This new coat will also better protect you from the elements!
  • Final Clean-Up – If the project spans multiple days, rest assured that our team will take the extra time to clean up on a daily basis, throwing away paint chips, packing up all of the materials we use, and getting rid of unsightly trash.
  • Dedicated Inspection – Once we’re finished with your project, it will be time to take a full tour of the property. We can’t wait to see your reaction and hopefully leave you smiling!

Frequently Asked Questions

The exterior is the first thing people see when looking at your home. You want to make a good first impression whether you’re simply inviting guests over or you’re trying to sell your house soon. Choosing the right service company to paint your exteriors can make all the difference and boost your home’s value. For over a decade, we at Platinum Painting have specialized in residential painting and have been serving homeowners all over North Texas. Over and over again, we’ve shown that we can bring each customer’s vision to life, resulting in beautiful homes and happy customers.

Is it ever too hot or cold to paint? What is the best season to paint outside?

Let’s face it! Texas has some crazy weather! At Platinum Painting, we do our best to complete exterior painting projects according to plan. For example, when the temperature exceeds 100 degrees in the summer, we schedule our work earlier in the day to stay ahead of the heat. However, if the temperature dips below 35 degrees in the winter or if it’s raining, which is common during the spring and fall months, we need to reschedule for another time so that we can give you results that meet our—and your—high standards of quality.

Should I replace my gutters when I paint?

Yes! If your gutters aren’t functioning properly or they’re really old, your house can suffer from expensive water damage or foundation problems as a result. Plus, if you replace your gutters around the time you’re painting the exterior, the beautiful results can last much longer and be better protected from future damage. Luckily, our founders, Karl and Marjorie Pickens, also own Platinum Gutters and can easily provide you with this service. Or we can collaborate with the gutter company of your choice and schedule the work accordingly. That way, you can spare yourself from expensive repairs down the road and enjoy your gorgeous home for many years to come.

Can you paint metal fences and gates?

We sure can! We have experience painting all kids of exterior surfaces, including metal fences and gates, and have the skills and tools to approach any situation in the most efficient way possible. Our “Idea Guys” are experts and can create an accurate estimate for the work you’re envisioning—just tell us what you want, and we’ll get it done to your satisfaction! Having served over 10,000 homes in North Texas, our team of experienced professionals know how to deliver high-quality results with every project.

Can you replace the wood before you paint?

Absolutely! Yes, we are primarily a painting service company, but our skills reach beyond the paintbrush.  As you likely know, we can get some pretty crazy weather here in North Texas, and the wood surfaces outside your home can show it. Over time, rain and hail can cause these surfaces to become damaged or rotten. On our team, we have master carpenters who can replace wood for HardiePlank lap siding, the fascia, and the soffit—just to name a few. As with our painting work, we guarantee your satisfaction with our carpentry, ensuring that your house stays beautiful and strong regardless of what Texas weather throws your way.
