Vancouver Exterior Painting ~ Prep Work

Properly Scraping Off Old Loose Paint

As you may know, one of the most important steps in the painting process is prep work.

Because proper prep work is often tedious, many painting contractors do the bare minimum, and cut corners to increase their profit.

One of Careful Painting’s hallmarks is substantial and thorough prep work.  It always has been. Customers frequently comment on how much effort we put into our prep work.

Whether you have an interior or exterior painting project, you can count on Careful Painting to do your prep work right, with meticulous clean up afterwards! The bottom line is we want your project to look great, and last a long time. That’s why we invest the time in our consummate preparation work.
