I was certain I was headed for the major expense of re-siding my house. I had no idea that not only was this not necessary, but with a professional paint job from Painting Solutions in Chardon my house would look new again. Owner Dan Peck assured me that because of their thorough process and the quality of the products they use, the exterior of my home will stay looking like new for years to come.

“We paint aluminum, vinyl, brick, and, of course, wood siding,” says Dan.

“All of these surfaces have their own way of aging. Wood flakes and peels and aluminum and vinyl fade and get dirty. Original vinyl and aluminum have a protective coating, but over time it wears away. You can spend tens of thousands of dollars for new siding, or a fraction of that for a good paint job that will transform your home.”

I chose the paint job and couldn’t be happier. As Dan says, if the job is done right, it will last for 15 to 20 years.

“One of the things that sets Painting Solutions apart is our preparation—whether we are working on the inside or outside of your home,” says Dan.

“I’ve been painting for over 20 years, both here in Northeast Ohio and in Florida. I worked with ‘old school’ painters who taught me to never cut corners and that a quality job is all about the details. I’ve passed all that I’ve learned on to my crew.”

Dan and his team have seen many examples of poor-quality paint jobs where little or no preparation, sloppiness and lack of attention to detail have produced disastrous results.

“We’ve seen jobs where the wrong paint color and type of paint were used or no preparation was done at all,” says Dan. “Our exterior jobs start with a thorough power washing of your home to remove any dirt, loose paint and mold that has accumulated. Then, two coats of the right type of paint for your home are applied, all trims are hand brushed and shutters are repaired if needed and securely reattached.”

Painting Solutions’ interior work is equally as meticulous as its outdoor jobs.

“We take care of your home like it’s our own,” says Dan. “We cover all floors and stairways and move furnishings if necessary before we get started sanding and repairing walls, trim and ceilings for paint. It’s a labor-intensive process but critical for the beautiful and long-lasting outcome you can expect from us.”

I can certainly attest to the aesthetic value of a great paint job, whether it’s outside or inside of your home, but paint is also the first line of defense for your home’s exterior when facing the elements.

“Weather can really do a number on your house,” says Dan. “Moisture is enemy number one, both indoors and out. Painting Solutions will protect your home with the highest quality products to guarantee a beautiful, protective and lasting barrier against the elements.”

Dan’s crew has been working with him for years and he is proud to say that he has hand trained them all in his detail-oriented process.

“They know what I expect of them,” says Dan. “We trust each other and we’re all working toward the same goal of improving both the aesthetic and financial value of your home.”
