Having a nice green lawn and lush landscaping is a great addition to any yard. These plants however need water to thrive and in a desert climate like Phoenix that can be hard to come by naturally. Most homeowners resort to underground sprinkling and drip systems to feed this landscaping and keep it green. A properly laid out sprinkling plan is very important as it will prevent water from shooting on your home and fence walls and causing accelerated damage to your stucco and foundation, all of which can add up to unnecessary (and costly) repairs when it comes time to repaint your house.
Every summer the residents of Arizona get excited, not because of the 110 degree temperatures or the increased scorpion sightings, but because July and August mean monsoon season! It means we finally have a chance to see some rain that we’ve most likely not seen since January. Yes, we don’t like the humidity but we welcome the storms and rain to wash off our dusty homes and streets.
Operating a house painting business in Arizona isn’t like most other areas, we don’t really have to worry about the storms or the weather. We don’t really even have to pay attention to the forecast, we just know we need to wake up and get ready to paint! We know that for over 300 days every year we’ll have a bright and sunny day, perfect for painting (as long as its not TOO hot). Last night and today were however a little different, we got a little treat, a large dark blue cloud rained on us for most of the night and all morning, it dropped 1/2″ of rain throughout most of the Valley—Arizona Painting Company was prepared.

Description Of Work:
Sometimes our AZ painting contractors like to turn our eyes to the rest of the world. There’s paint everywhere, you know! We’d embark on a pilgrimage to pay our respects to the great paint sites of the world – if we weren’t so busy slapping fresh coats on commercial and residential properties in the Phoenix Metro area, that is!
This week’s job of the week was a home in Peoria, AZ. completely repainted by our crew foreman Don and his assistant Danny. This home was just purchased and the new owners wanted to give it a fresh start with a completely neutral paint job. The interior house painting job was a 4000 sqft, 1 story custom home. The current paint job was a custom faux glaze throughout on all the walls and ceilings. This style was very popular a few years back, but times have changed and the new owner wanted something more neutral. The doors and trim were also painted black and we were to change it back to a pure white, quite a difference!
Painting sure can make a huge difference, it can take an old and outdated home and make it look new again, this weeks featured repaint was no exception. The winner this week was a single story home in Phoenix, approximately 2500 sqft. This home had not been painted in over 10 years and it sure shows.
In the photo below you can see how discolored and faded the paint was especially around the front fence wall and the front lower portion of the home where the sprinklers were hitting. The home has a list of other issues: The front fence wall also had such bad cracking that it was visible from the street, the patio ceiling was cracked and peeling, the foundation was peeling badly, there was rotted trim boards, the list keeps going on.
Arizona Painting Company was fortunate enough to land the contract to paint this amazing home in Scottsdale. It was a 4000 sqft 1 story home with beautiful stained wood around the trim and stone accents around the front of the home. We really appreciate getting to work on these custom homes because they give us a little break for the normal ‘cookie cutter’ homes that many subdivisions in Phoenix have—-not that we mind those though :). Being a custom home there are always some unique areas that we have to work around and as an experienced Scottsdale house painter we were up for the challenge.
Arizona Painting Company recently finished the painting on this strip mall in Phoenix, AZ. As a commercial painting company, we always enjoy getting to beautify a building to the extent we did with this one. You can see from the before pictures that the build was very “faded and dated,” it needed a fresh paint coat to say the least. The owner of the complex said that it had not been painted in over 15 years.
It’s always fun when you get to see such a huge transformation on a paint job. We paint several homes each week and most of them are color matches or similar colors so we like to post the more extreme color change cases. This house in the Islands HOA in Gilbert was completely repainted and was a huge color change. Prior to our Gilbert house painter arriving at the jobsite this home had not been painted in over
We were called out this week to do a commercial repaint of a car wash in Phoenix. The current colors were red and yellow and the owner wanted to change the paint colors to shades of blue. Take a look at the before photos and you can see what we started with.
