We want you to still be smiling

years after we finish painting


Why use the best primers?

 So surprises won't stain

 your new paint.

--George Mera


There are few things as beautiful as an old home  sanded down to the bare cedar shingles or clapboards. But that same cedar that looks so fresh and new after we finish sanding can ruin a new paint job in a hurry. That’s why it’s important that your house painter use the best primers – to keep tannins from the cedar from bleeding through your new paint job.


Every summer, Independent Painters works on at least a few homes that were painted very recently by other painting contractors. Usually, it's because the companies did not take the right steps to prevent bleed-through. We invite you to watch the video at right to learn how you can avoid this costly mistake. And if you haven't already requested it, we can send you a free report with more tips on preparing a house for painting to ensure a long-lasting finish. Just fill out the form below the video, and we'll send it to you right away.
