The Collegiate crew did a great job with a very large house. They came everyday and worked until the job was finished including touch up and clean up. I would recommend them for any job that needs some fresh new paint.

Cory is well on her way to becoming a sales executive there's no doubt, "no" is not in her vocabulary and I'm sure glad of that now. We were thrilled with the results and would have them all come back again.

Understanding Paint and Stain
There are many factors that go into a quality paint job and understanding the basics of paint and stain helps determine the plan of attack to a successful paint job.
The first step toward making an informed decision as to whether or not you need a paint job is to gain some background on the paint and stain covering your home and if or why it is peeling. Paint and Stain can fail for a number of reasons. When your home covering (paint or stain) fails it leaves your home at risk for rotting wood, an expensive fix. It’s best to maintain the paint or stain on your home before it becomes an excessive costly problem.
The most common failure for a home covered in paint is peeling or flaking. When your home is losing it’s protective covering it is usually due to moisture that has been allowed to enter between the paint and the wood. Whenever you notice your home starting to peel in any area you should consider recoating the entire home. Not only does the fresh coat of paint protect the wood from rot but it also beautifies your property and increases it’s value.
The most common failure for a home or deck covered in a stain is fading. The sun and the elements will cause stain to naturally fade overtime. Before your home gets down to the bare wood it is best to recoat the surface with a coat or two of stain.
