Refreshing A “New” Home

Megan’s new-to-her home needs a little exterior work.

The exterior trim and railings need painting because it’s not as bright and some of the paint is coming up. The shutters are old and need replacing. Overall it looks old and worn down.

Megan talks to Ashley about her project. They both ask and answer each others’ questions like what needs to be done, how it will be done, and if there’s a deadline.

Once all the questions are answered it comes down to the cost for painting exterior trim and more. This is when Megan schedules an estimate.

The At-Home Estimate

The morning of the estimate comes and Megan is wait- *Ding-a-ling-a-ling*

She opens the front door to see Nick, Tribble Painting’s estimator, standing outside.

Nick with Tribble Painting

They chat for a few minutes before Nick starts taking a look at her house. She points out a few things to him and they ask each other a few questions. It’s always best to make sure everyone’s on the same page.

In the end, Nick gives her an estimate on how much it’ll cost for painting exterior trim and railings as well as replacing the shutters.

Megan agrees to his estimate and writes him a deposit check. He thanks her and leaves while she calls Tribble Painting to speak with Jeanette about getting on the schedule.

Jeanette helps Megan get on the schedule and tells her a bit about what’s going to happen. Megan will first get an email with some information like when her start week is. Once it gets closer she’ll get another one with the start day and who her project manager is.

Megan thanks Jeanette and hangs up the phone, excitedly waiting for the day to come.

Painting Exterior Trim And More

The morning of the project arrives and so does the Tribble Painting team, headed up by Weston, her project manager mentioned in the email.

Weston with Tribble Painting

Weston asks Megan to join him on a pre-job walk through to make sure they are both on the same page. He wants to do exactly what she wants and this is the best way to make sure that happens.

Afterward, he gives her his personal cell phone number in case she has any questions or concerns. She thanks him and watches as he rejoins his team.

Then the project for painting exterior trim and more begins!

The Process

The process for painting the trim goes something like this:

  1. Carefully power washing the house
  2. Scraping loose paint off
  3. Priming the bare wood
  4. Caulking as needed
  5. Painting

Then Weston and his team went on to take care of the window shutters. The first one comes off and EVERYONE BACKS UP BECAUSE THERE’S A YELLOW JACKET NEST!!!!

Whew, it’s inactive, as are 19 of the 20. Thankfully, nobody gets stung and the project continues as normal. Weston’s team also repairs some rotten wood trim Megan had on her home.

The project turns out wonderfully:

Green shutters, old trimGray shutters, fresh trim

Megan’s Refreshed Exterior Is A Hit!

Megan loves it and says as much to Weston on their post-job walk through. The trim is fresh, the window shutters are beautiful, and she doesn’t have to worry about rotten wood or yellow jackets.

Overall, Megan’s is very happy she contacted Tribble Painting for their exterior painting services.
