With spring just around the corner, you may consider giving your home a new look. Exterior painting is a great way to spruce up your home’s curb appeal. Since 1980, the experts at Richard Shannon’s Painting, Flooring and Remodeling have been providing Cincinnati area residents with a wide range of remodeling services to get their homes ready for warm weather, including exterior and interior painting, power washing, and deck staining. Not only is Richard Shannon’s Painting backed by over 30 years of experience, these commercial painters are fully licensed and insured and proud members of the Better Business Bureau.
Repainting your home’s exterior may seem like a simple job. However, there are several dangers of doing it yourself. The chemicals in paint can be hazardous if the paint is mishandled. Homes built before 1978 may still have lead-based paint on the exterior, which can be extremely dangerous when sanding or scraping to remove the old paint. The team of professionals at Richard Shannon’s Painting will handle the removal process safely, in accordance with the strictest health and safety standards.
Although newer paint formulas have fewer toxic ingredients, they still contain potentially dangerous chemicals. It’s important to make sure that all paint containers are tightly sealed when not in use and stored in a place that is out of the reach of children and pets and is well-ventilated. Getting rid of leftover paint can also be tricky. Working with professional painters will minimize the possibility of having leftover paint that needs to be stored or thrown away. Richard Shannon’s Painting will work with you to determine the right amount of paint to complete the job and will perform a thorough clean-up, saving you the headache and cost of storing or disposing of excess paint.
Ladder security is another crucial aspect of home improvement safety. Overreaching or unstable footing are two of the most common reasons homeowners fall off ladders when working. The team at Richard Shannon’s Painting are fully-trained to work safely with ladders and other equipment needed to reach even the highest points of your house. Moreover, these painters are insured, meaning they are well protected while on the job.
