Interior Exterior House Painting Contractor Painter Syracuse NY

Last week Donigan Painting worked with a new home owner in Jamesville.  John and Linda DeFrancisco called me to take a look at their new home to paint most of the first floor.  Their ranch was faux painted and they wanted to lighten it up.  After selecting new colors for the ceilings and walls in their master bedroom, living room, kitchen, hallways, laundry and garage the contract was signed and work began.  All of the crown, door and base molding was Frog Taped and draped with paper.  The walls were sanded to remove irregularities, nail-screw holes were filled and the floors were protected with contractors paper and drop cloths.  Two coats of Benjamin Moore Ultra Spec 500 Flat were applied to the ceilings in the color White Dove.  Then two coats of Ben Moore's Tapestry and Winter Wheat were applied to the walls in eggshell finishes.  The results were fantastic!  Here are some before and after pictures.

This past week Donigan Painting repainted an interior in Camillus.  Dan and Deb called me about a month ago to quote their living room, stairway and hallway that have 20 foot ceilings.  Their current color was a beige and the entry hallway had picture boxes with stylish 80's floral print they wanted removed and floated out with joint compound to match the rest of the walls.  To start all the switch and outlet covers were removed, nails-screws were removed then filled with joint compound, the picture box mold and wallpaper was removed then floated to match the walls.  The floors were covered with contractors paper and drop cloths and the painting began.  Two coats of Benjamin Moore's Ultra Spec 500 Low Sheen-Eggshell was applied in Revere Pewter and one coat of bright white semi gloss was applied to the base molding.  Here is how it turned out!

Last week Donigan Painting worked with a customer in the Tipperary Hill Neighborhood on Syracuse's west side.  Sarah called me in May to get an estimate for her two story asbestos shingle colonial on Whittier Ave.  She explained to me how she had been trying to get this done for many years but kept running into less than professional painting contractors and hassles.  We streamlined the process and got her an immediate quote and contract for service.  The date was set and we completed the work at the end of last week.  The soffit and trim was hand scraped to remove peeling paint.  Broken shingles and corner aluminum pieces were replaced.  We repaired a hole in her soffit from a bird pecking thru. The chimney was caulked with 25 year silicone caulk to match the color of the house.  After the prep work was completed one coat of Benjamin Moore's Ultra Spec Exterior Flat was applied in a custom color that was matched from a sample she provided at Purcell's Wallpaper and Paints.  The dentils were painted a terra cotta color and the soffit/trim was painted with a pine green.  To make the job complete we threw in a free porch floor repaint to put this customer over the top.  Here is how it turned out!

This past week Donigan Painting worked with a homeowner in the SU area on Allen St.  Linda's 1920's colonial needed some touchups and the porch floors stained.  The previous painting company did a less than stellar job 4 years prior and the paint was rapidly peeling and had failed in many areas when I arrived to fix it.  Linda explained to me that the company who did the job rushed thru the work and left her very dissatisfied with the results.  I assured her that it would be done right the first time with us and explained exactly what I would be doing and the products being used.  The pressure treated pine on her porch floors was painted the first time so this time around it would be stained so the wood can breath.  After thoroughly hand scraping and cleaning the porch floor decks two coats of Cabot's Solid Deck Stain was applied in a light grey to match. The cedar clapboards on all four sides of her home were hand scraped, oil primed and two coated with Sherwin-Williams Resilience to match the current color.  Here is how it turned out!

This week Donigan Painting worked at a long time customers house in the SU area.  Zoltan and Lorraine called me to paint the south side of their cedar shake on the exterior .   Over the years they have hired my company to paint sections of their home.  First the wood shutters were removed, thoroughly hand scraped, repaired with new wood screws, primed and painted 3x flat black.  Since it was built in the early 1900's plastic was put down to collect the paint chips and dust created from scraping.   The areas being scraped were wet down with a garden house to keep dust to a minimum before starting.  After the scraping was finished the plastic is wet down with a garden sprayer and goose neck bagged in contractor heavy mil trash bags.  All bare wood was oil primed with Zinsser's Cover Stain.  The roof below the shakes was covered with contractors paper and ducked tape down to prevent any paint from hitting their brand new shingles.  After the primer set up two coats of Benjamin Moore Ultra Spec Semi-Gloss White were applied and the shutters were rehung with new hardware.  We also painted their garage doors and a few sections that also needed attention.  Here is how it turned out!

This week Donigan Painting worked with a customer getting ready to list their home on the real estate market.  Josh called me from a referral from a previous customer.  They just bought a new home and needed to clean up their current house.  He had concerns about the stained vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom and the dingy concrete floor in the basement.  After discussing his project we came up with a reasonable number that worked for the both of us and work was started that weekend.  Stains on the bedroom ceiling were primed with Zinsser Stain Blocker and one coated with Pittsburgh Ceiling Paint from Purcell's.  The basement floor was thoroughly vacuumed then mopped before two coats of Floor& Porch Enamel were applied in a satin finish.  Josh and his wife were very pleased with the end results and will be contracting me to work on their new home in a couple of months.  Here is how the basement turned out!

Interior Exterior House Painting Contractor Syracuse NY

Recently Donigan Painting worked with a long time customer in Strathmore to continue to restore her 1920's California Bungalow.  Dorothy is 91 years old and has lived in the same house for 70 years in this neighborhood.  She has contracted me over a number of years to do sections of her home as she can afford it.  Last summer both dormers were painted as well as the garage.  Last week she scheduled me to paint the front porch clapboard, molding and floor.  The last time the house was painted Doug of Doug's Fish Fry Skaneateles did the work decades ago so it has been quite a while and needed plenty of tlc.  All surfaces being painted were thoroughly hand scraped to remove peeling paint, scrubbed with Simple Green and then rinsed before oil primer was applied to the bare wood.  Two Coats of Benjamin Moore's Ultra Spec Exterior Bright White Flat Sheen were then applied to the clapboards as well as two coats of Porch & Floor Enamel Battleship Grey Low Lustre  and Fall Harvest Flat Sheen to the molding.  The stair railing was also two coated with black gloss enamel.  Here is how it turned out!
