Hassle-Free Painting With FS Construction Services

Over the years we’ve found that many people have had an experience that goes something like this: You decide its finally time to paint but realize you don’t have the time, patience or skill to make your new home maker look like it could be a featured product on those home makeover / fixer upper programs on TV! Not to worry.

Whether you’re looking for professional painters to do a job you simply don’t have the time or energy for, or it’s a job that’s too difficult or complicated, FS Construction Services has you covered. Interior, exterior, big, small, our paint specialists can handle all kinds of jobs.

Recently, Brian “Boomer” Garleb came to the rescue of a family who knew what they wanted but wanted to make sure it was done right. While some projects are only room or two, this project was much more involved and included a family room (with a 22’ vaulted ceiling), foyer, kitchen, two hallways and laundry room.

In the client’s own words, the experience was as simple as this, “We reached out to Boomer and he came by the house to look at the rooms we wanted done and provide a quote. He even helped us figure out how much paint we needed to buy. They showed up with all the tools, brushes, drop cloths, tape, and everything needed to get the project started.” One of the many benefits of hiring the FS Paint Service paint team is the experience they bring to every project.

“Honestly, we couldn’t be more pleased with the work. They finished on schedule and even a little under the quote they provided. Now we can get back to enjoying our home and we are loving it.” The home owner even told us, “This would have taken me WAY longer to complete and wouldn’t have looked nearly as good as what Brian and his crew did.”

2 Keys To A Paint Project That Stands The Test Of Time

Paint is a funny thing. When it’s done well, it’s one of the easiest things in the world to ignore. But when it’s done poorly, or when it’s in need of some serious updating, it makes even the nicest buildings look unsightly, old, and ugly. We know how tempting it can be to want to finish a paint job quickly, which can lead to improper prep work and ultimately, shortened paint longevity.

Our paint team at FS Construction Services understands exactly what a good paint job can do, which is why we take great pride in making sure every paint project we complete is handled with the greatest care and attention to detail. The first key to a print project that stands the test of time is ensuring prep work is done properly. Our prep work involves scraping existing paint, power washing, using a cleaner like TSP or chalk remover, and applying a primer. We’ve always believed that primer is the key, not only providing adhesion for the top coat, but providing overall protection for your building.

We know how easy a great paint job is to overlook. We also know just how much of a difference it can make when it’s done well, especially in ways that can’t be seen. This leads us to the second key factor to ensuring your paint project looks great for years to come, a team of experienced professionals with a dedication to detail and quality. Over the past year, our paint team has been hard at work on the 60+ projects. From sheds to grain bins to roofs to trim to entire homes and buildings, we have had great support and feedback from the communities we serve. We appreciate your trust and know none of this happens without you.

Brian “Boomer” Garleb and the team of paint professionals are thankful to all of you who have trusted your special projects to our team over the years. 2018 was a great year and are looking forward to the many opportunities and challenges 2019 will bring.

So, if you have outdoor structures that could use a touch up, whether they are residential, commercial, or agricultural, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists provide you with a free estimate and help you achieve the fresh new look your project deserves.

5 Common Paint Problems and Their Quick Fixes

Summer is a great time to finally get around to all the paint projects that have been building up over the year. With this in mind, our paint expert, Brian “Boomer” Garleb has come up with his top five problems that most paint projects will run into at some point and how to fix them.

  1. Fish eyes: Fish eyes occur when paint has been applied over oil, dirt, silicone, or incompatible coatings. Luckily, fish eyes are an easy fix. First, you’ll need to remove the grease or oil stain with a cleaning solution. Usually bleach, paint thinner, or trisodium phosphate (TSP) will work. After the area has been cleaned, the area can be sanded down.
  2. Cratering/Pitting: Another common problem is cratering or pitting. This occurs when air pockets get trapped inside wet film. The solution, however, is easy enough, and just involves sanding or smoothing out the existing finish and applying another coat over the sanded area.
  3. Uneven gloss: Uneven gloss is when film thickness is not equal, when there’s moisture in the coating, or when a topcoat is applied over wet primer. Solving this problem simply means allowing more drying time.
  4. Fading paint: Moisture trapped behind paint is more likely to cause paint to fade. Purchasing paint already colored for factory, which has a powder tint rather than a liquid tint, is an easy way to fix this common problem.
  5. Paint wrinkling: This happens when too much paint is applied. To fix it, remove the bad paint and recoat the affected area.

So there you have it, five common problems and five simple solutions. If you ever have a paint project or other service projects you don’t feel up to tackling, you can let Gateway FS Construction Services know. You can give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.
