We have chosen this line because of its superior stain blocking abilities, washability, moisture resistance, and long lasting performance. Other lower and higher end products are available based on the clients preferences.

data talks

Did you know? Both interior and exterior painting have one of the largest return on investments (55% – 107%) when it comes to home improvement projects. Not only do they carry a large return on investment, but painting is one of the most cost effective ways to make a big impact. “It’s the least expensive investment for the biggest return,” says Jennie Norris, chairwoman of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals.

If you are planning to sell your house in the near future, your exterior and curb appeal is even more important! 2019 HomeLight data backs up that focusing on buyer first impressions is crucial: 76% of agents agreed that curb appeal is the no. 1 project you should complete to improve your home’s marketability, and over 94% believe curb appeal will even boost your home’s value.

carpenter bee and critter damage repair

In addition to exterior painting, Better Painting offers professional carpenter bee damage repair solutions and services to St. Louis area homes and businesses. It sure would be nice if carpenter bees would just buzz off, wouldn’t it? Fall is the best time to fix carpenter bee nests, in order to prevent young carpenter bees from emerging and continuing to further the damage. Although there are many ways to fix these pesky holes, we have perfected it. We use spackle to fill in any damage to your wood surfaces. Spackle works much better than any other alternative as it will not eventually leave a divot or cave in. It ensures the surface looks entirely unblemished. The next day it is ready to sanded and painted. We use this same process for any other critter damage you might have. If you have damage from other critters such as wood peckers, we can fix those too.

What are the differences between paint and limewash?

  • Limewash penetrates the brick instead of sitting on top of it, leading to no peeling and less maintenance over time. It also lets the brick breathe because of this!
  • Limewash is thinner than paint and isn’t opaque, which leaves a beautiful variety of shades and colors.
  • Limewash is hypoallergenic! Because of its high pH level, microorganisms can’t survive.
  • Limewash is slightly flexible, making it a great choice for older homes and buildings. It handles natural movement well, which reduces the damage of cracks.
  • Limewash is non-toxic and completely natural.

Our chosen product for limewash

For our limewash projects, we use Classico Limewash by Romabio Masonry Paints. Romabio’s Masonry Paints are BIO (bio-logical), made from nature. They are not acrylic or latex paints. They are mineral based products different than any other paints in the industry and are derived from sustainable materials to create a natural, breathable coating.  This brand is consistent and has never let us down. Our customers love that we are using an environmentally friendly product on their homes.

is paint or limewash the better choice for you?

Both are great options for turning your brick a brighter, more modern looking white. If your exterior has masonry surfaces like stone, brick, and concrete, limewash is an excellent option for transforming your curb appeal.  It all depends on your goals and desired look for your home. If your vision for your home is ultra modern and you want to ensure the exact shade of white is achieved throughout, painting your brick is the better option. If you enjoy a more rustic, timeless look, limewash is probably the better option. One thing to note about limewash is that although it ages well, it will erode over time requiring a new coat every 5-10 years. Either way, Better Painting would love to help you transform your homes exterior! Our estimators would love to educate you on your options and help guide you in the right direction based on your home and goals.

It was a pleasure working with Better Painting! We had our entire main floor of our home painted and they did a fantastic job. Their staff is incredibly friendly and easy to work with. They eased my mind that painting our whole house would be quick and painless and they were right! Going forward I will be using them for all of our painting needs!!

My husband and I bought a home and the inside smelled a bit like cigarette smoke. We called Andrew with Better Painting and he came over for a consultation. We explained the situation and he showed us our options. He helped us pick out colors and we chose a few days to have his crew paint before we moved in. I couldn’t be happier with the result. Walls and ceilings look great and the smoke smell is gone. Andrew was great to work with and the price was reasonable. Highly reccomend!

Would recommend! After my wife and I closed on our new home we tried multiple things to try and get rid of a lingering cigarette smell. At one point I even suggested we could just start smoking again so the smell wouldn’t bother us. It has been 5 years since I kicked the habit of a pack per day so no one thought that was a good idea. Andrew came out and suggested that maybe after we paint the smell would be encapsulated and it was! We sure are glad Andrew was able to help us out. The ceilings and walls look great and we have Zero lingering cigarette smoke odor. We will be hiring Better Painting anytime we need a room painted. Thank you Andrew and Better Painting!
