Exterior Painting

There is nothing more effective in making your house more beautiful and adding to its value than a fresh coat of paint. Whether you want a new look, more curb appeal or are thinking of selling, our experienced painters will get the job done professionally, with the least amount of disruption to your daily routine.

Home Exterior Painting

Thousands of Homes

Our expert painters have completed thousands of homes throughout the Greater Chicagoland area. They take great pride in thoroughly cleaning and preparing the surface to be painted, taking precautions to protect windows, sidewalks, decks, driveways, yards and personal items during the painting process.

We take the time for proper preparation to extend the longevity of the paint job. Our thorough and complete prep includes the removal of all dirt and debris, repair or removal of broken items, including wood, trim and siding boards. We sand to remove old paint or stain, and then we pressure wash or clean by hand all surfaces to be painted.

Prep Work

High Quality

We prime with high-quality exterior primer to prepare all surfaces for painting and then apply the topcoat of your choice, which may take several coats. We help you pick the appropriate colors for your job, and can custom-match to any swatch you present so you end up with the perfect hue for your home. 

Our Services

Exterior Painting

We use the best products available, including Mad Dog primer to ensure proper adhesion over bare areas. We use Quad OSI caulk, a polyurethane product that not only seals gaps to prevent water from getting in, but also holds boards, windows and doors tight to adjacent surfaces. We also use top line products such as Duration, which is twice as thick as regular paint.  While these high-quality materials may cost a little more, they are a better value in the long run because your painting job will last that much longer.

Aluminum Siding Painting

Painting your home’s aluminum siding exterior can give it a brand new look and boost curb appeal. The first step is cleaning and prepping the aluminum using stiff-bristled brushes or aggressive power washing for particularly difficult jobs to remove dirt and mildew. Then appropriate primer and paint are applied for an instant fresh look.


Brick Limewashing

An alternative to painting, this coating produces a soft white façade and refreshes worn-down brick exteriors. It also protects your bricks from the elements. Limewash is made from powdered limestone treated with heat and water, resulting in a stable product that provides a durable coating for brick. After application, some of the product is washed off to expose the underlying brick.


German Smearing

This process renews up your home’s worn-down and dated bricks without painting them over. It is achieved by spreading wet mortar over the bricks. The result is a charming Old World exterior siding, mimicking the look of irregular stones and heavy mortar joints, a style found in old cottages and castles throughout Germany. Mortar is available in white and gray, but color additives are available.
