Interior Exterior House Painting Contractor Painter Syracuse NY

Recently Donigan Painting worked with a long time customer in the Syracuse University neighborhood.  Ernest and Sue called the pro's back to get it done right the first time painting their living room, dining room and stairway.  Each room had special attention paid to the prep work so that the paint looks fantastic for years to come.  In order to make this all happen correctly we sanded the walls using 220 grit to knock down any previous nap, dust or snags.  Next all nail and screw holes were filled and sanded flush.  Irregularities in the walls were floated with joint compound, sanded and cleaned.  The ceilings were painted once with Pittsburgh Ceiling Paint Flat White.  The crown was two coated with Benjamin Moore's Ultra-Spec 500 White Satin after being sanded and cleaned.  The original molding and windows were hand scraped, sanded, cleaned, primed(acrylic), and two coated with the same Moore product.  Caulk was put in every seam and knocked down with a clean wet rag before paint was applied.  Drop cloths, paper, plastic and tape are a staple on every Donigan Painting site so that all your property and belongings are protected.  Their furniture was centered before we started and then reset when the job was finished.  Outlet and switch covers were rehung and any hardware that was removed was replaced.  They are very happy with the results and have contracted us to paint the exterior of the home next year and refinish their oak floors this winter.

Interior Exterior House Painting Contractor Painter Syracuse NY

Last week Donigan Painting worked with a new home owner in Syracuse's Sedgwick Neighborhood.  Ron and Nicole called us to quote removing wallpaper throughout, repairing water damage to plaster & lath on a bedroom wall and painting the interior before moving in.  After accepting the bid we signed the contract and work started shortly after.  In the soon to be nursery a 4x8 section of plaster and lath was removed that was damaged from a roof leak.  The plaster was scored then systematically removed in sections to maintain the rest of the walls integrity.  The lath wood was carefully cut out so that the rest of the wall was not damaged.  Blocking was installed in the wall then new sheetrock was hung.  Two pieces of rock were used to plum up the wall to the same thickness it previously was.  Joints were taped and then mudded to make the wall flush with the existing section.  An access panel was removed and new base molding and quarter round was installed to match.  The ceiling was two coated with Pittsburgh Ceiling Paint Flat White.  The walls were primed with PPG"s Seal Grip Primer- Acrylic before two coats of Benjamin Moore's Ultra Spec 500 in Grayish Flat Sheen were applied.  The molding, windows and trim in this room were two coated with the same primer then three coats of Behr's Satin Enamel were applied.  The walls and molding were thoroughly cleaned and sanded in between coats for a smooth-mirror like finish when the paint was applied.  All hardware was removed then reinstalled which includes window pulls-latches, outlet-switch covers, smoke alarms, doors-hinges-strike plates.  The oak floors were covered with contractors paper and taped off to keep cleaning to a minimum for are new home owners.  The hallway and stairway also had wallpaper removed and everything painted right down to the stringers and risers.  A similar gray and the same trim paint were used and applied twice.  Here is how it turned out!  The homeowners are very pleased with the results and have contracted us to paint more rooms.

Interior Exterior House Painting Contractor Painter Syracuse NY

Last week Donigan Painting worked with a repeat customer in Skaneateles NY.  Deb called me in a frenzy to repair rain damage.  Her house was being inspected Monday and it was Friday  The clock was ticking so the pro's went to work and executed a firm plan of attack to solve this dilemma.  With lighting speed we arrived on the scene within hours.  The water had left but there was work to be done on the sheetrock it warped so we prepared the remedy and served it up. The wall never knew what hit it but it was a one two like it had never seen.  Pow-wham done!  The wall was floated with joint compound, set up, then was sanded-cleaned-painted.  Benjamin Moore products were used to prime and paint the wall and ceiling. The paint is flashing in the pic below because it was slapped with a brush a second before.

Recently Donigan Painting worked with a customer in Skaneateles to prepare their home to sell.  John and Deb contracted me to upgrade some dated areas in their home.  The stairway rail and balusters were stained giving them an outdated look.  The hallway, master bedroom and bathroom were repainted and crown molding was installed to modernize them a bit.  To start the rail, balusters and stringers were hand sanded and cleaned.  Nail holes and seams were caulked then two coats of Seal-Grip Alkyd Primer were applied.  Following this two coats of Benjamin Moore's Regal Classic in Bright White Semi-Gloss were applied.In between coats the primed crown molding was two coated with the same product.  Once the paint had dried the molding was cut precisely to fit, nailed, caulked and touched up.  Here is how it turned out!

Interior Exterior House Painting Contractor Painter Syracuse NY

This past week Donigan Painting worked with a couple in Cicero who just bought a home and are moving here from Ohio.  Adam and Jen called a few months ago to line up time for a quote when they were in town.  After meeting and discussing their needs I sent the quote and they decided to move forward with their interior painting.  Their Ryan Home needed to be freshened up with contemporary colors.  They chose shades of blue from Sherwin Williams.  The kitchen, family room, sun porch and master bedroom had two coats of Sherwin Williams Ovation in a satin finish applied.  When working with darker colors in my experience this product provides excellent coverage in fewer coats.  Before the paint was put on all the outlet-switch covers were removed, the curtain hardware was taken down, nail-screw holes were filled with joint compound and the base-door-window molding was taped out to protect the wood finish.  The walls were rough from the previous painters naps shedding so they were all sanded with 220 grit paper to remove the snags for a smooth glass like finish when the paint was applied.  They are very pleased with the results.  Here is how it all turned out!

Interior Exterior House Painting Contractor Painter Syracuse NY

Last week Donigan Painting worked with a long time customer in Jamesville.  Jim and Susan wanted to repaint their master bedroom bathroom and replace the floor with new vinyl.  After meeting with them to discuss their needs and sending them a quote they decided to move forward.  We began by removing the toilet to have full access to the floor and to be able to paint behind it.  The door and window hardware was removed.  The vanity and anything not being painted was covered with painters plastic, paper and tape.  The ceiling was painted with Pittsburgh Ceiling Flat White from Purcell's.  Nail holes and imperfections were floated out with joint compound, sanded and cleaned.  The walls were then sanded with 220 grit paper to remove any snags or rough areas for a smooth glass like finish when the paint is applied.    Next the walls were cut in and two coats of Benjamin Moore Regal Select were applied in a crème pearl finish.  The linoleum was prepped with Henry Primer so that the new vinyl would adhere.  Once the primer had setup the new vinyl was carefully measured and cut then dry fitted.  After it was trimmed  to fit perfectly we rolled back one side of the vinyl and troweled the adhesive on the floor.  The vinyl was then rolled back and set with a press to remove air bubbles.  Quarter round molding was then mitered, caulked and painted with Ben Moore's Regal Classic White Semi-Gloss twice.  The window molding and door were also two coated with the same product.  A bead of white silicone caulk was applied around the shower and molding as needed.  Here is how it turned out!

Interior Exterior House Painting Contractor Painter Syracuse NY

Last week Donigan Painting worked with a customer in Syracuse's Sedgwick Neighborhood.  Christina called me last Fall for an estimate on painting the exterior of her home on Rugby Road.  Her house had not been painted in 20 years and needed extensive prep work before paint could be applied.  This Fall she was ready to go and we set the date to begin.  To start since her home was built before 1978 plastic was laid down around all areas being scraped to collect lead chips and dust being taken off.  Following this the plastic is sprayed with water to dampen the dust and is discarded. The windows were glazed as needed and caulk was applied to gaps around windows and doors.  Her original shutters were carefully removed, scraped, primed and spray painted with the color which was matched with the green used on the rest of the houses shutters.  Next a coat of oil primer was applied to the bare wood areas that were scraped to seal it preventing tannins and yellowing once the final coat was applied.  One coat of Benjamin Moore's Ultra Spec Exterior Flat Bright White was applied as the finish coat.  When working with older homes steps are taken to ensure that everyone is kept safe and healthy during and after the work is complete.  To make sure we are complying with all safety standards Donigan Painting is EPA RRP (Renovator-Repair-Painter) Certified to work with lead based paint.
