Prep- work is the key to Ski Home Improvements providing you the best service possible. It is the foundation of a long-lasting paint job. Without the adequate amount of prep- work you can count on repainting your home sooner. Half the time we spend working on your home is in preparing it to be painted, through scraping, priming, and caulking.
Priming is an essential step in the painting process. It is used to adhere paint to bare wood and any other surface you apply it to. Priming gives your house the strength and protection to produce a more durable finish. Primer is also used to seal and eliminate stains from a multitude of causes.
Caulking a house properly can not only save you money but make your home look great. Caulking provides a moisture barrier and seals water away from areas which could be damaged by water. Caulking properly also helps reduce air leaks, which helps the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.
Sanding not only gives your finished surfaces a smooth finish, it also promotes the adhering of the finish products. Patching holes, priming, and caulking along with sanding helps eliminate imperfections. Resulting in a better finish product.
We make sure to cover and protect all flooring, furniture, decks, concrete, plants, and the roof. We remove all receptacle and light switch covers to paint behind them and to keep them clean. With each of our packages and projects, we take time to clean up any debris caused by us. Our goal is to leave your home in great shape so all you need to do is enjoy it.

What Finishes Should I Chose?
What Finishes Should I Chose?
Flat: is the least reflective finish and provides excellent depth of color. Its great choice for hiding surface imperfections on walls, ceilings, and siding.
Matte: is more reflective than flat and is also ideal for minimizing surface imperfections, while providing a durable finish.
Eggshell: for interiors, imparts a softly polished glow and easy to clean surface. It is prefect for busy areas such as kitchens, dining rooms, and family rooms.
Satin: for exteriors, is a slight gloss finish that can be easily cleaned and holds up better to the elements to a matte or flat finish.
Semi-Gloss: creates a smooth, highly reflective finish that is durable and withstands repeated cleanings. It is also used to highlight trim, doors, and window frames.
