It’s Seen Better Days
“What’s seen better days?” asks Jim.
Charles sighs. “My garage. There are nail pops, stress cracks, and seams all over the walls. It looks terrible and it needs fixing.” Jim nods understandingly. “I know what you mean. My garage doors are covered in woodpecker holes. They need fixing and painting. Maybe I should look up how to repair woodpecker holes and stop them from happening.”
“Have you looked up how to paint a garage door? Or how to paint garage walls?” asks Charles. Jim shakes his head. “I don’t know how to paint a garage. We should probably hire someone for each of our projects.”
Charles nods. “Want to look together?” Jim nods and they start looking. They find Tribble Painting and, after looking at reviews and pictures, they decide to hire them.
Here’s how they paint the two men’s garages:
How To Paint Garage Walls
- Clean the walls with a mixture of trisodium phosphate and water
- Repair damages like nail pops, stress cracks, and drywall tape seams
- Sand and prime patches
- Apply two coats of acrylic paint with a satin finish
Charles’ garage doesn’t look damaged anymore. The nail pops, cracks, and seams are gone and the garage is a bright new color. It looks even better than Charles had been imagining.
How To Paint Garage Doors
- Wash your garage doors with a mild bleach and water solution to clean and remove any mildew or organic growth
- Scrape off any loose paint
- Check the bottom part of the garage door frames for rot and damaged areas and replace them as needed
- Caulk garage door frame
- Prime any bare wood
- Apply one or two coats of a high-quality paint
Jim loves the new color of his garage doors. He’s happy that the woodpecker holes are gone, too.
The Best Paint For Garage Doors
The best paint for garage doors is a paint with an eggshell or satin finish. We tend to use a Benjamin Moore brand made for exterior use. These types of paint last longer and look better than others.
What Working With Tribble Painting Is Like
Charles and Jim call Tribble Painting separately to talk about their projects.
The administrative assistant at Tribble asks and answers questions until they have a good idea of what the men want. Charles and Jim have an estimator come out to their homes. They each decide to move forward and write a deposit check.
They call Tribble back and get on the schedule. They each get emails about their start week. Closer to the start, they get emails for the exact start date and who their project managers are.
On the start date, each man sees a Tribble Painting van pull up to their homes. The project manager (the same as in the email) goes on a pre-job walkthrough with each of them. Once they’re done making sure they know what the men want, they start the job.
Once they finish, the project managers go on a post-job walkthrough. They make sure they go beyond expectations.
