Though our work is commonly called “commercial painting,” we often paint for organizations that are very non-commercial in nature, from charities to animal shelters to churches. One example of such a project was a church we did some painting for in Santa Clarita: St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, on Orchard Village Road.
The scope of our church painting project on this occasion was a storage building which needed some cleaning, restoration and painting. After a brief cleaning, we were able to use a coat of premium flat latex paint to freshen up the color, which was the same color as the previous one. We also painted the eaves in the same color, after applying a full priming coat.
The fascia, doors and patio cover were all painted in white, exterior latex paint, which made a great compliment to the walls. The last part of this job was to spot prime and repaint the metal bars which protect the windows. These had suffered some rusting over the years, but they are now thoroughly treated and protected from further rust.

Pressure washing, scraping and sanding are the best ways to remove dirt and any failing paint. We use specialized caulks to repair splits in wood or stucco, and then prime any surfaces where bare wood, patching or metal are apparent. We scuff any glossy surfaces, to make sure they will accept the new paint layers, and of course, we carefully cover all plants and non-painted surfaces to ensure a spotless cleanup.
