Demolition of dangerous structure and long overdue exterior painting.

On this job the new homeowner wanted the back trellis painted at first.
  During the preparation stage, upon execution of pressure washing it was determined that the structure was very poorly built and a danger to his family and children. This must have been an unpermitted addition from a previous owner. The tops of the beams and lattice had a severe case of dry-rot and the support beams where only in the ground about 4 feet. A strong wind could have easily blown it over. We are typically known as Castro Valley Painting Company but we also do several handyman services.

Matching interior wall and ceiling textures

Matching previously applied wall and ceiling textures can be a challenge and somewhat of an art. In some cases you will have to smooth and retexture a complete surface (wall or ceiling) to replace  it with something more consistent that somewhat matches it surroundings. That is mostly common in acoustic ceiling or (popcorn) ceiling removal.
 There are a few ways that interior textures can be applied and often times you will have to experiment with material mixture and technique to match previous

Painting over stained doors and cabinets.

An affordable and effective way to update and improve the appearance of the interior of your home is to paint over your previously stained doors and cabinets. California has made it hard for residential painting contractors to do a good job while applying fine finishes to doors and cabinets  on account of all the restrictions and conversion to environmentally safe products. For a couple years I could not find a good primer that would adhere good to oil base finishes, that was sand able, and would block stains and yellowing.

Fire and smoke damage

 
 
 
 I recentlyhad to repaint a rental unit that had a fire in the kitchen. The fire damagedthe cabinets over the stove and left burnt smelling black soot throughout thekitchen and common areas. The kitchen had to be totally cleaned with a strongTSP solution and the ceiling primed with Bin shellac based primer before thewalls ceilings and trim where repainted. The smell of this stuff is prettyintense but dissipates quickly. Oil base primers are only sold in quarts now inCalifornia and will do the trick on a job like this if you can stand the smellfor the 24hrs that it takes to cure.

Painting and Decorating just in time for the hollidays

This project started at the beginning of the summer with a quote  for the painting of the exterior of a large 2 story residential home in the south east area of Hayward. I heard approximately 3 week later that the home owners wanted to go with my company after comparing estimates from other contractors and seeing our reviews on Yelp. The customers concerns where that they wanted to go with a much darker color then most houses in the neighborhood and was worried that that the HMO would not approve of it.

Here are some before and after pictures of a job I took over because the other self proclaimed painters got in over there head. They were getting over spray over everything, bypassing most all of the preparation stages such as thorough masking, caulking and patching the many nail holes in the siding that were left behind on the original paint job. The home owner was not even happy with the color. The previous painters had an un approved color on there house, there roof, there back patio, plants and windows by the time they had got home from work at the end of the day.

 At Advanced PaintingSystems we pay heavy attention to proper preparation. The stucco on this househadn’t been painted in 30 years. It had a deteriorating coating on it that was poplar in the Late 70’s that claimed it would last for the lifetime of your house.
 
Our client was looking for a Pleasanton Painting Contractor that could provide a warranty and had good reviews on Yelp, where she found us.She was encouraged by our ability to do handyman services and repair and replace the visible dry rot.
