Home > Our Process

At Gould Painting, we believe in a meticulous and thorough approach to ensure a flawless and long-lasting paint job for your home’s interior and exterior. We understand that doing so is not as simple as choosing a paint and applying it. At Gould Painting, we go beyond. From the initial consultation to the final walkthrough, we take pride in our proven painting process to not only meet your expectations but also exceed them. Here’s a closer look at our comprehensive painting process:


Initial Estimate and Collaboration

We begin with a detailed inspection of your exterior surfaces, noting any damage, cracks, peeling paint, mildew growth, and more. We’ll be working and collaborating closely with you to create a personalized plan that aligns with your vision and budget. Through clear communication, we’ll ensure to fully understand the project scope and timeline, leaving no room for surprises down the road.


Surface Preparation

Power Washing. Afterward, we start by power washing the surfaces to remove dirt, grime, and loose paint. For our targeted cleaning procedure, depending on the surface, we use specific cleaning solutions for optimal results and allow for proper drying time.

Scraping and Sanding. To ensure a long-lasting finish, proper surface preparation is key. Our team painstakingly scrapes any loose or peeling paint then sand the surface to create a smooth and even base for the new paint to adhere.


Repairs for a Flawless Finish

We take time to fill in any cracks, holes, or damaged wood with exterior-grade filler, ensuring a flawless finish. Any deteriorated wood we identified during the initial consultation is replaced to ensure a sturdy and long-lasting foundation for the paint.


Protecting Your Property

Before painting begins, we make sure to protect the surrounding areas, such as windows, doors, gutters, and landscaping. We use a combination of painter’s tape, plastic sheeting, and tarps to safeguard surfaces from any accidental or unintended paint application.


Priming for Optimal Results

Depending on the project requirements and material of the surface, we apply a suitable primer to not only boost paint adhesion but also provide a smooth, even base for the topcoat.


Selecting the Perfect Paint

We prioritize high-quality Sherwin-Williams products, known for durability, excellent coverage, superior color retention, and resistance to fading and mildew– perfect for Buffalo’s ever-changing climate. We also make it a point to consider the weather to ensure optimal application conditions for a beautiful, long-lasting finish.


Professional Application

Our skilled crew uses a combination of spraying, back brushing, and rolling techniques to achieve uniform coverage and a flawless finish. Additionally, we work methodically from top to bottom, applying thin, even coats for maximum paint durability and longevity.


Finishing Touches and Inspection

Upon completion, we carefully remove all protective materials and clean up any loose paint chips to ensure a tidy and complete job. We also conduct a final and comprehensive inspection to address any minor touch-ups or areas needing further attention as soon as we spot them.


Final Walkaround and Feedback

Last but not least, we invite the client for a final walkthrough to ensure complete satisfaction. Our crew manager will be present to help assist with any final concerns and perform any minor touch-ups needed. We recommend periodic repainting every 4-10 years, depending on factors like weather and paint quality, to maintain the beauty and integrity of your home’s exterior.

At Gould Painting, we aim to exceed your expectations. Through our meticulous process, attention to detail, and use of premium products, we ensure a beautiful and long-lasting paint job that protects and enhances your home for many years to come.
