Our Approach to Painting is different from every exterior painting company in boston north shore. Click here to read more about our approach to painting and why you should choose M&E for your next exterior house painting project.

Our process includes:

  • Full exterior power wash to remove dirt and debris and allow for clean painting surfaces. In some cases, TSP (tri-sodium phosphate) may be included in the wash to remove oxidized and chalking paint.

  • Scraping and removing of loose failing paint.

  • Sanding areas to create a smoother painting surface and to feather out edges where bare areas meet areas that still have paint.

  • Priming areas of need to allow for proper paint adhesion, and to seal areas from rust or stains.

  • Caulking areas of need to create a moisture barrier around the home. This is done using a 55-year rated, urathanized acrylic elastomeric caulking. Elastomeric caulking is superior in stretch-ablity and durability against the elements.

  • Complete masking and covering of areas not to be painted (windows, roof, concrete, landscaping, furniture, decks, patios, etc).

  • Application of only premium quality paints (Ask an estimator for details) using today’s most advanced professional standards.

  • Daily job site clean up and progress reports.

  • Respectful and courteous professional painters.

  • Final job site inspection to ensure client satisfaction.
