Does Your Faux Finish Wall Need Attention?

Just like any other wall, often times faux finish walls require attention. Does your wall need to be touched up but you lack the skill or confidence to complete the job? Perhaps the wall has a dent and could use a little TLC? No matter the reason we can definitely get the job done.

Does Your Faux Finish Wall Need Attention?

A faux finish is one that either imitates another material, like stone or marble, or one that creates a texture on a wall that isn’t really there.  It can include such techniques as Venetian plaster (which isn’t plaster at all) or leather, metallic, and even more!

Faux finishes provide a unique challenge because not only are you matching multiple paint colors, but matching the technique within the color frameworks as well.  Matching color and technique is no easy task and if taken on by an amateur can result in an area of wall you’d rather hang a large picture on to cover up the mess.

When you contact us, we’ll be sure answer all of your questions and concerns.  Even if your wall was just one color it can be just as hard to match.  Time and environmental factors affect the paint that is on the walls so it may no longer match the color out of the can with the same name.  Our 15 years of painting service and excellent customer reviews prove that we have the expertise to tackle your spackle and paint problems.

Handyman Services Can Improve the Look of Your Home

Homeowners always have a list of projects to do, and some of them are harder than others. For those who aren’t the handiest of people, electrical projects can be a little intimidating. For that reason, sometimes people simply live with their old fixtures, long after they’re out of date. If you’re ready for some changes, Excellent American Painting’s Handyman Services can help you with 4 simple things that will give your home a new look.

Handyman Services Can Improve the Look of Your HomeOutdoor lighting

Do you ever walk by the lighting department in the home improvement store and find yourself drawn to some of the fantastic outdoor lighting fixtures, only to go home and look at the boring ones that have been there for years? They may even be chipped, rusted, or discolored by now. This is an easy change that can make a big difference in the curb appeal of your home.

Update Kitchen & Dining Fixtures

These are the most important rooms in the home, because they are where everyone gathers. Do you ever look up at your fixtures and hope no one notices you’re still lighting your kitchen with a fluorescent light from the 80’s? Or wish that gaudy gold chandelier in the dining room would just disappear? These are easy fixes that will give these rooms a whole new look.

Replace/Add Ceiling Fans

Not everyone loves how ceiling fans look, but they are extremely functional in bedrooms, and usually help keep cooling costs down, as we’re headed into the warm weather.

New Bedroom Lighting

Do you have certain rooms that just don’t have enough light? Maybe there aren’t enough windows to let in natural light and you’re tired of feeling like they’re dark and dreary. We can wire in some new lighting to brighten things up and make it appear fresh and new. Can lights are a perfect way to brighten a dark room.

If all these projects sound great to you, but you don’t have the time or knowledge to get them done, handyman services in the Frisco area can take care of it for you. For more information, contact us.

Discover Energy-Saving Remodeling Ideas

There are easy energy-saving ideas we hear on almost a daily basis such as using new ENERGY STAR rated appliances and light bulbs. However, while these things help, the impact is small. Real energy savings comes from energy-saving remodeling projects that close the house envelope.

Discover Energy-Saving Remodeling Ideas

Creating an air sealed home limits heating and cooling energy loss, which is the largest percentage of your home’s energy use. The U.S. Department of Energy states 43 percent of the average home’s energy consumption is from heating and cooling costs. An energy-efficient home not only saves you money, it will also increase your family’s comfort.

Some energy-saving remodeling projects are:

  • Insulation — If your attic insulation is less that 9 inches, adding another layer can significantly save energy.
  • Window —New ENERGY STAR rated windows will help decrease the escape of heating and cooling energy.
  • Doors — As with windows, a new ENERGY STAR rated entry door will help close the building envelope.
  • Air Seal Floors — Adding air and thermal barriers between a garage and rooms above will save energy and money.
  • Weatherproofing — Make sure to check for drafts. Weather-stripping and caulking around windows and doors will solve this problem.

Investing in your home’s energy efficiency saves money on your utility bills and will add value at resale. Numerous reports from the National Association of Realtors, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, and Remodeling magazine show energy efficiency remodeling improvements add value.

Excellent American Painting LLC offers energy-saving remodeling that saves you money and improves your comfort. If you would like more energy-saving remodeling ideas, or need more information, please contact us.
