Springtime to Paint!

Spring fever is a term applied to several sets of physical and psychological symptoms associated with the arrival of spring. In general it refers to an increase in energy and vitality.

Spring is in the air

Spring is the perfect time of the year to paint the exterior of your Florida home

Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth.

Spring = Rejuvenation

Shouldn’t your home’s exterior be at the top of your list when thinking about Springtime and your rejuvenated motivation to get things in order around the house that you’ve been putting off for a while. Important things. Like probably one of your biggest investments, Your Home…

Once the clock’s are changed to Spring forward, you know that Spring is soon to follow.

Spring is the perfect time of the year to paint your home

Especially if you have any cracked or damaged stucco, faded paint, iron stains from your water sprinklers, or it might just be time for a fresh new vibe that will not only look great. But, it will also help protect the interior of your home from insects, water damage, mold and other moisture related issues for years to come. If you’re not sure about the color combinations you would like to have on your home. We can certainly help you with picking out the colors and advise you on the latest color trends here in Central Florida. Summer is right around the corner which means family get togethers , cookouts and sleepovers.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have your home looking great, so you could entertain guests and family and be proud of your home again?

Summer is right around the corner and so is Hurricane season

It’s amazing what a little paint can do. Not only does it rejuvenate your homes appearance. Additionally, a properly done paint job whether it’s done by you the homeowner or by a professional painter it will protect your home from the water damage caused from wind driven rain like we had during hurricane season just a few years back. A lot of the water damage caused during these wind events could have been prevented in hundreds of homes here in Brevard county, Fl by simply repairing all of the hairline stucco cracks on the walls of these homes and re caulking all of the exterior windows.

With all of the right preparation and applying the proper sealers and paints to their stucco walls on block and wood frame homes, it most definitely would have prevented the amount of water intrusion damage and insurance claims from the wind driven rain scenario.

In conclusion:

Spring provides the extra boost of energy that helps us motivate to get things in our lives in order for the rest of the year. This also means taking care of things you care about. The home is where a lot of people like to catch up on all of the little things that can protect it and make it look nice and cared for. Yardwork and exterior painting are some of the most popular springtime activities when it comes to improving and protecting your home.

So get out there and paint the exterior of your home! Or hire a professional house painter to get the job done properly. Leaving you with more time to focus on your family and other springtime home improvement projects.

What to do with my old kitchen drop ceiling lighting?

It’s a common dilemma among home and condo owners that I’m sure most of you have seen before.

That Ugly, outdated grid lighting system in the kitchen of a Home!

Whether you’re thinking about doing a new kitchen remodel or your just looking to modernize and open up your kitchens feel and get rid of that outdated kitchen drop ceiling and kitchen lights.
This process that I developed many years ago will turn any of these eyesore ceilings into a show piece that you will love and your neighbors will envy. I’ve installed close to one hundred of these types of trey ceilings here in the Brevard County area over the years.

Here some photo’s of the process:

After the drywall was repaired, It was time to apply a new and more modern texture called Skip Trowel:

Completely Professional!
I have had a number of contractors do work on homes I have owned over the years and Peck Drywall and Painting is only the second that I would rate as completely professional. Beginning with an extremely user friendly well laid out website, promptness in giving an estimate for doing a knockdown textured ceiling and then scheduling and completing the job as well as cleaning up after themselves, the only thing I can say is professional, professional, professional. The bid for the job was very competitive and I would be very hard pressed to find anything to complain about.<br/>

Great Work & Great Price!

Peck provides high quality work at competitive pricing. I was impressed with the painting of the exterior of our home as well as the repair and staining to our pool deck. The company’s employees were timely, courteous and professional. I found completion of the project to be timely with quality products. I solicit and manage contracted services in my professional career and would not hesitate to solicit proposals from this contactor for business or personal projects in the future.
