              A quality paint job will last 5-8 years.  Some variables included in that estimate are the number of trees and shrubs, sprinkler systems aimed at the house and window A/C's.  Each of these can reduce the longevity of the paint's lifespan.  A more exact time estimate can be provided once your unique situation has been evaluated by our professionals.
              Yes.  Latex house paint is recommended for use on aluminum siding, doors, etc.

              Benson Paints can do all the preparation, including removing light switch covers and moving all furniture.
              The furniture is moved to the middle of the room and covered in plastic.  We use drop cloths on all floors.

              When the textured ceiling was applied, it may not have have required paint.  Later when it needs to be  brightened up, it requires a primer before painting.  A self-priming finish coat may also be used.  In this case, the paint was absorbed into the ceiling at varying rates due to differing porosity throughout the surface.

              Removing old wallpaper is a labor intensive job.  Use a drop cloth.  Score the wallpaper in circular motions being careful not to damage the wall underneath. As per the manufacturers instructions, apply the wallpaper remover and allow it to soak in.  Use a spray bottle with warm water to keep the wall paper moist.  Starting at the top, use a scraper to get an area started.  Once it is loosened, you may be able to use a 12" taping knife.  Apply additional solution as needed until the job is complete.

              Using adhesive remover and a damp sponge, wash any residue off the wall and repair any damaged areas.  Repairs can be completed with spackle or all purpose joint compound.  Let it dry completely and sand the area.  Two or more coats may be required.

              Paint should not be applied during the extreme cold or on exposed areas during rain.   Latex paints dry quickly, it only takes a short time for the paint to set.

              The surface must be free of dirt, grease, mildew, and any other contaminates or the paint will have inferior adhesion.  A surface cleaning with a powdered soap and water solution followed by a clear water rinse.  Avoid cleaners containing ammonia.   If you suspect mildew is present, prepare a mix of a quart of household bleach to 3 quarts water and wash the area thoroughly, let it sit on the surface for at least 10 minutes prior to rinsing.  Ensure adequate ventilation when using bleach for respiratory protection.


              Clean off any existing mildew before applying the new paint is important.  A mildewcide can be added to the new paint before it is applied.  Cleaning it off existing surfaces is done by using a commercial mildew solution.  Test the surface first and rinse thoroughly with warm water.
