Three Brothers Painting has been blogging for you for over a year now – bringing you the latest information on interior and exterior house paining, small wood repair, staining, and pressure washing. Throughout these last many months though, there have consistently been some top blogs that our customers enjoy the most, so we wanted to pull those together for you in one location for you to answer your most frequently asked painting questions.
Removing Your Popcorn Ceilings – Popcorn ceilings, also known as acoustic ceilings, have a sort of popcorn or cottage cheese style rippled texture. This style became popular a few decades ago because it was good at covering up less-than-appealing workmanship in connecting and taping of drywall. Also, it lessened echoes and reflected sounds and was easy and quick to apply in new construction.
Turn Your Garage Into a Showroom with Painted Floors – Spring is typically the time when homeowners get in the mood to clean out their garages and purge old stuff. For a number of men, their garage is their sanctuary, and they want to treat it as such. After cleaning out the junk, organizing the tools, and finding a place for everything, a stained, oily garage floor makes the area look unfinished.
Low VOC Paint vs. Regular Paint What’s the Difference – As more and more families are opting to go green with their homes, the Three Brothers Painting crew often gets asked about low-VOC paints. The term VOC stands for volatile organic compounds. Defined, VOCs are unstable, carbon-containing compounds that readily vaporize into the air. As paint dries, these harmful VOCs are released into the air at high levels, causing air pollution and potential health issues which can be problematic for people with breathing problems such as asthma or emphysema, pregnant women, or families with small children and animals.
Painting Your Home’s Brick Exterior – Painted brick will revitalize an exterior that is showing its age, whether it be discolored brick, repairs that don’t blend in, or an additon that was added on that has a different colored brick. Painting the brick is a solution to make them look uniform once again.
Deck Stain Alternative: Deck Revive – Deck Revive is a new product that Three Brothers Painting is offering that turns just about any deck into a Trex-like surface. This is a great option for Woodstock, GA home owners that wanted to install Trex decking, but were prohibited by price.
