Elevate Your Home’s Exterior with Earls Paintworks in Calgary

The exterior of your home is the first impression people have of your property, and it’s crucial to keep it in pristine condition.

Enhance Curb Appeal & Protect Your Home

The exterior of your home is the first impression people have of your property, and it’s crucial to keep it in pristine condition. Calgary’s unpredictable weather, with scorching summers and freezing winters, takes a toll on the paint of your exterior surfaces. That’s why maintaining your home with top-notch exterior painting services from Earls Paintworks is essential to protect it and ensure it looks its best for years to come. If you’re seeking guidance on safeguarding your home, here are valuable tips and tricks to help you maintain the exterior paint.

Updating your home’s exterior not only boosts curb appeal but also provides the necessary protection to preserve your property’s surfaces. A well-maintained exterior acts as a barrier, preventing moisture from seeping into your walls, which can lead to costly repairs or replacements. To maintain the exterior paint, it’s recommended to have it painted every five to ten years or when signs of wear and tear become noticeable.

Weatherproof Your Home

Calgary’s weather can be challenging, with extreme temperature fluctuations and precipitation levels. These conditions cause paint to crack, peel, and fade. To ensure your exterior paint withstands the elements, it’s crucial to select a paint product specifically designed to endure Calgary’s unique climate.

Essential Steps to Maintain Exterior Paint

To prolong the life of your exterior paint, regular cleaning is vital. You can opt to clean the exterior yourself using a mild detergent and a soft-bristled brush to remove dirt and debris. Alternatively, you can hire Earls Paintworks professionals to pressure wash your exterior, ensuring a thorough cleaning. Additionally, it’s essential to address any areas where the paint is peeling or cracking promptly. Ignoring these issues can lead to more significant problems down the line.

Preparing Surfaces for a Flawless Paint Job

Before painting, proper surface preparation is key. This involves cleaning, sanding, and repairing any damaged areas. While it may be time-consuming, removing loose paint and sanding the surface creates a smooth, even base for the new paint. Use a filler to repair any holes or cracks before painting. These meticulous steps guarantee the longevity of the paint on your exterior surfaces.

Choosing The Right Paint

Selecting the right type of paint is paramount to ensure optimal protection for your home. Earls Paintworks experts can assist you in choosing a paint product specifically formulated for Calgary’s climate and compatible with the surface you’re painting. Additionally, using a primer between surfaces and the paint creates an additional layer of moisture protection while ensuring proper adhesion to your exterior.

We hired Earl and his crew to paint the baseboards & walls of our basement. He is very good at answering emails and texts. Also is punctual when meeting for quotes and doing the work. I specifically wanted our baseboards lacquered and NOT brush or roller painted. It cost more, but the results speak for themselves. The basement was left clean and the furniture well covered. Great work from this company. Would recommend

Recently Earl painted the exterior of our house. The structure was very challenging and needed an enormous amount of prep work. Earl and his crew showed up every day on time and went full tilt for 4 days to get all the prep and painting done. The paint was all brushed and rolled.They were very professional and it was obvious that they take pride in their work.I did have trouble deciding on the colours and after a couple of stressful months, I followed up with a colour consultant that Earl recommended. It was money well spent and we are very pleased with how it turned out.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl and his crew.
Earl and his team helped me dramatically improve the interior of a recently purchased 1960 Bungalow. They prepped and painted the main level completely (ceiling, walls, windows, door jams, etc.) and did some painting in basement as well. Easy to work with from the start to finish. Great job, on time, and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend Earl’s Paintworks. I will most likely be using their services again soon!

Earl is the best in the business! We hired Earl to paint the exterior of our 106 year-old heritage home that was in disrepair. Our house is a craftsman bungalow that required highly detailed workmanship. Because of the uniqueness of the house, and its heritage value, we were nervous to hire the job out to just anyone. We met with a number of companies and Earl's Paintworks stood tall above the rest. We loved that Earl was an owner/operator and knew after talking to him that he'd take great care with our beloved home. We weren't wrong! Earl and Jeremy were meticulous - sanding every nook and cranny to ensure a perfect finish that would stand the test of time. We wanted a tri-colour scheme to show off the home's craftsmanship, which required a lot of taping, cutting, and intricate work. Our neighbours would stop by to compliment Earl and Jeremy - blown away by the precision and quality of their work. Both my fiancé and I were sad to see them leave. Earl and Jeremy had become fast friends, always making time to stop and visit with us (despite putting in long days of hard labour). Couldn't recommend them enough! If you are looking for a painter, do yourself a favour, and stop here.

We recently hired Earl's Paintworks to repaint the entire interior of a newly-purchased home and could not be more pleased with the quality of the work and exceptional service provided from start to finish. We were on a very tight timeline & Earl (the owner) and Jeremy showed up ready to work 30 minutes after we took possession of the house. They put in long hours to finish the job in only 8.5 days, despite the fact that it was a massive project (3 storey house with over 30 windows/doors to paint around and some 20ft ceilings). The care they took to cover our hardwood floors, carpeting and cabinetry was remarkable - not a drop of paint left anywhere it didn't belong.Earl was truly a pleasure to work with, responded to our questions in a timely & friendly fashion, and provided knowledgeable (and realistic) advice on different finishes and colour options. He even went above and beyond to point out some small repairs that needed to be addressed around the house which was helpful to us as new owners. We had 4 different companies quote on the job and chose Earl's Paintworks based on a gut feeling that Earl was the right choice. Very happy with our decision - so much so that we're hoping to have them back this summer to do the exterior of our house as well.We would recommend Earl's Paintworks to anyone without hesitation. If you're looking for a hardworking, locally-owned company to do an efficient, professional, super high quality job, this is it!

We wanted the interior and doors repainted in our home in preparation for selling. We obtained a couple of quotes from painters. We ended up choosing Earl due to our positive interactions with him.This is a small but very professional company. It was good to work with a smaller company where the person painting your home is the actual owner and therefore, someone who took full responsibility for the work. Earl was very helpful with colour suggestions. He was easy to communicate with via both emails, phone calls and text. Earl was a perfectionist. He finished our 2 level 2000 sq ft home in about 6 full days. He came a few weeks later to do the exterior doors (garage and entry) when the weather was warmer.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl's Paintworks.
