Saving Time And Money When Painting The Exterior Of A House

Fri, Oct 23, 2015

Technology changes very rapidly, it has the tendency to impact almost every aspect of modern life; this is even true when it comes to exterior painting in San Antonio. Modern paints are now being applied more often than not using methods not employed a few years ago. Having an understanding of the products and application techniques used today helps the homeowner get a long-lasting paint finish in the quickest time possible, both of which add up to savings.

The use of a sprayer:

Perhaps the primary reason why sprayers are now the norm rather than the exception is time savings. It is hard to compare the time it now takes to paint the exterior of a house vs. the old method of brush and roller, depending on the size of the house, it can easily cut the time from a week to just a couple of days. There is no need for the homeowner to think that to get the speed the painter is sacrificing quality, far from it. A professional at exterior painting in San Antonio can get as good if not better finish when the paint is applied with a sprayer. Paint which is applied by spray id usually much smoother and more uniform, there will be fewer runs and other misfortunes compared to brush and roller application.

Money savings:

Not only do sprayers give a superior finish, the use of one saves the homeowner money. The old traditional method of brushes and rollers can take many more days that to do the same job with a sprayer. When it comes to any work that is done on your house by a professional it is good never to forget that “time is money.” When you can get a better job in fewer hours it is definitely a win-win situation.

The personal touch is still there:

Using a sprayer will never totally eliminate the need for craftsmanship. There are still numerous places on the house where the personal, hand painted touch is still required. It is impossible to paint the trim around windows and doors, the gutters and doors with a sprayer, nothing will ever replace time honored tools and skills for these areas. Also, if it is necessary to prime an area before painting to ensure that the underlying wood is well protected, hand painting is a must.

When you get exterior painting in San Antonio done by a pro you really don’t have to worry, the pros know best what to do and how to do it.

I am thrilled with the complete master bath remodel that Alain & his incredible crew from Shaw recently completed in my home. It was a great experience from start to finish. This company truly works as a team, communication channels are all open. Even when a hiccup occurred…they addressed it immediately & moved forward. The crew was professional & positive…really a pleasure to have them in my home. Alain went above & beyond in every aspect including making sure I was not simply satisfied with the work but truly happy. I also want to thank his crew member Sammy. He did an exceptional job & really kept the work site clean every day. I will absolutely use Shaw again for future projects.

Shaw is a very professional company. Anthony was informative, courteous, and super professional. He communicated continually throughout the remodeling process and was always willing to adjust or change anything we requested. His crew was very respectful. Christopher, Marcus, and Roy are outstanding in their fields. From Patrick's design expertise and Brittany's helpful coordination of materials, my kitchen is beautiful and functional. The Shaw team follows up continually and is great to work with.

Shaw remodeling did an excellent job on our master bathroom. Clay was always concerned that we were satisfied with their work. When they tell you they are not finished until you are 100% happy THEY MEAN IT! I want to thank Clay for all his hard work on the new door it was a bit difficult to install. Everyone mentions the beautiful door. Special thanks to Jordan for suggesting the accent wall behind the vanity also a favorite of all. Brittany made is so easy helping us with the design. Thank you to Nancy and the Shaw family who sent me flowers while I was very ill during the remodel.

I had a wonderful experience with my recent renovation, timely help, many choices in the showroom, professional workers in my house, reasonable cost. This was the second time I used this company. Granite countertop, tile flooring, lighting, paint, tile backsplash, sink. I feel like I have a whole new house! And I didn't have to take off work, GREAT JOB, Shaw!

This is my SECOND contracted job with Shaw's. They did a complete kitchen last year and I chose them based on a recommendation I received as well as my own evaluation. They did a terrific job, Salvador and his crew. Brittany was extremely helpful in the planning and setup of the decisions we had to make. So, one last project to complete to update our home, the Master Bathroom. Again, I chose Shaw's and did not consider other companies this time as I wanted the excellence and quality that comes with Salvador and his team. I think he has the best tile guy-Antonio, best dry wall-Rafael, and electrician /plumber in Marcos, in the business. I cannot go without recognizing Robert that starts the demo, everyone is just absolutely terrific to work with. When I made the call to Brittany, she ask who I wanted to do the job, of course, I responded in saying Salvador and his team. Salvador built my cabinets in both jobs as I knew the quality would be second to none. Shaw's is not the cheapest, nor have I found them the most expensive, but whoever is thinking about a major investment in their home, they should consider the quality and service before anything else. Please feel free to contact me if anyone has any further questions. Regards, Mike and Teresa Willis.

I write because I had an experience with The Shaw Remodeling Company that I have never had before. The Shaw Company did a major remodeling job on my home about six years ago. A few months ago I discovered an issue associated with the work that was done by The Shaw Company. I called the Shaw company, asked for customer relations and explained my issue to a person named Evan. Evans response to me was, "I am going to own your concern. I don't know what we can do since it has been six years but I will make sure that management is made aware of your concern". A few days later I received a call from Mr. Eric Shaw. He scheduled an appointment and came to my home with an independent plumber. They determined that it would be an expensive fix and, the issue was due to a problem with the original work. Mr. Shaw looked at me and said, :I own this problem and, I will take care of it". It was a very expensive repair. It involved taking out tile, concrete and, excavating. Shaw Remodeling sent a crew it my home to correct the issue and complete the repair. I have done business with several contractors. I have never had anyone take unconditional ownership of mistake (be reminded that this was six years after the work was done). I recommend The Shaw Remodeling Company because they do great work and they will be there for you after the job is completed. Andrew Cameron

We live with the work done by your team. Everyday we can enjoy the results. Through hail and high water, tile delays, it is an accomplishment all around. I appreciate the generosity of explaining why this and that is done. Our letters are intended to show our thanks. Any bonus was well deserved/earned by the team. Be proud of the work done, as we are in showing it off.
