Amity Painting is your Affordable, Highly Rated Exterior Home Painter in Seattle
Professional exterior painting is an investment in your home that is both beautiful and functional. In most Seattle neighborhoods, just about anything goes when it comes to popular exterior home colors. From warm Earth tones to classic cool blues and greens, to burnt orange and light pink or a hundred shades of white, your choice of color makes a statement about who you are; it improves the curb appeal of your home and adds to the unique look and feel of your neighborhood.
Our exterior paint and caulking services protect your home from water intrusion; the professional result helps your home’s siding and insulation to work effectively in sun, wind, rain, sleet and snow.
Due to Seattle’s long, wet winters, there is a very limited window to properly paint home exteriors in the summer months. If you are planning on painting your home this year, it is best to reserve your place on our schedule as early as possible in the spring. If you are calling us during the summer, we will provide our best estimate as to when we can schedule your job.
Six Steps to a Properly Painted Home
The average exterior painting project takes 2-3 days depending on the condition, shape and size of the home and the nature of your job.
We will sand down existing paint bubbles and imperfections in the siding. Protruding nails will be tapped in or replaced and sealed with putty.
We will pressure wash the walls to remove sawdust, mildew, dirt and grime.
We apply primer if the wood is bare or if the color is dramatically changing, especially if you move from a dark exterior color to a lighter one.
We will apply a full exterior coat, touch up as needed and wait for it to dry.
We will apply a full second coat and inspect every inch for touch ups. Once that is dry, we will paint windowsills and trim if they are in a different accent color.
As the paint cures, bubbles in select areas could occur. In such cases, we will return to the site, repair and touch up so that the finished product looks flawless.
Our work is guaranteed for years; every paint will also come with a lifespan guarantee.
We will discuss the warranty of your paint selection to help you make the best decision for your timing, needs and budget. We will also teach you about proper care and maintenance to help you get the most mileage out of your investment. For best results and performance, we recommend repainting your house every 7 to 10 years.
