NEW RESIDENTIAL PAINTING JOB COMPLETED IN MANHATTAN BEACH!

On June 12th, we began working on a new residential painting job on the exterior of a home in Manhattan Beach.  We are very pleased to share that the Colarossi team has completed this beautiful painting project through hard work and dedication!

On June 12th, we began painting the exterior of a home in Manhattan Beach.  We are very pleased to share that the Colarossi team has completed this beautiful project through hard work and dedication!

THE PROCESS

First, the Colarossi team power washed the exterior of the home, in which a high-pressure water blast was used to remove all the soot, dirt, salt air residue, and loose paint. The exterior was in need of an upgrade, so we prepared the surface by scraping, patching, repairing, sanding, and spot priming all surfaces that needed to be painted. All unsightly stucco cracks were repaired to match the existing texture of the exterior and we repaired the wood with bondo (a putty filler) as needed.

In addition, we completely primed all the repairs and used caulk on all large open seams with a 35-year caulking to waterproof the surface and keep all of that pesky water out! We also prepped, spot primed, and seamlessly painted the rain gutters surrounding the home, and delicately sanded, primed, and painted all doors facing the outside. Furthermore, we repainted the exterior wood, wood trim, stucco, and the garage door to perfection. 

Finally, we prepped, primed, and repainted all iron work and fencing surrounding the property (including the railings and gates) to create a pristine finish. We used Dunn Edwards, one of our favorite and most trustworthy paint providers, for the entirety of the project.

As a result of the Colarossi team’s hard work and dedication, the homeowners’ were pleased with the new life and color brought to their home! We are incredibly proud of the beautiful work we’ve done on this home which will last for years to come.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PROPER FINISH FOR YOUR INTERIOR PAINTS

We at Colarossi Painting and Rain Gutters will advise you further upon inspection of your property. The following is some information to get you started for those who would like to get a jump-start on some basic information regarding what to expect when we arrive. We like to educate our clients as much as possible before, during and after a project so that you can make the most informed and confident decisions.

We assume if you are reading this you are about to paint your home. If you are taking this step, we would like to do everything in our power to help you get the most out of the time and money you plan on investing into your home improvement. The happier you are, the happier we are. That is the foundation for our business. We have operated locally in the South Bay and Los Angeles area for decades and satisfied homeowners is our bread and butter.

Types of finishes for paints:

1. Flat – OK for walls but not great because it shows dirt and doesn’t clean very well.

2. Eggshell – Hides imperfections, smoother than flat and a popular choice for walls.

3. Satin – Shiny and cleanable, popular choice for kitchens.

4. Semi Gloss – Very shiny, good for trim, cabinets and doors. Extremely cleanable.

5. High Gloss – Great for areas that need to be cleaned often.

We will work with you to select the best finishes and colors for each area of your home. We have painted hundreds of homes (interior and exterior), commercial buildings and even industrial spaces. The experience has provided us with the knowledge to approach every project with a laser-like focus and provide outstanding results every time.

We have a dozen of our own, branded trucks and painting crews locally on the road. This allows us to service every project large or small without delay. Give us a call today, we will be happy to inspect your property and answer any questions you have. Have a great day and we look forward to meeting you. In most cases we will make it out to your property within one business day.
