Door Painting & Staining
You can find a lot of information online about how to paint your doors. However, one of those articles describes it as "the ultimate painter's challenge." Door painting and door staining are not like painting a wall in your Seattle, WA area home. It's a process - one that we would highly encourage you to give us a call at Progressive Painting Inc. to take on for you. There are a lot of variables and using certain tools and techniques can make the difference between your door or doors turning out exactly like you were hoping for or as a DIY gone wrong.
When it comes to door painting and door staining in the Seattle area, the first and maybe most important step is always the prep work. Cleaning the door well and then sanding it down are the start. Doors tend to suffer some nicks and scratches that you won't find on other surfaces. Dealing with them in the right way can be tricky.
When you ask us to paint your door or doors, we'll usually ask you to consult with us on the paint. Many homeowners prefer a glossy or at least semi-gloss paint for a front door. What's most important is that the right paint is chosen for the right type of surface so that the paint will cover the surface very well and look good.
For the staining of doors, applying the stain requires careful attention. Consistency, speed and completeness can all be factors in how good the stained door looks. You can be sure that the professional painters at Progressive Painting Inc. will take the proper care in matching up your door to the look you want to see.

Over time, garage floors can become stained and dirty. Coating or painting your garage floor can make your garage look like a whole new place. That's especially helpful if it also serves as a workshop or if you have kids in there a lot with bikes and toys.
One of the most important steps in garage floor painting or coating is to make sure the surface is prepared properly for the paint or coating. This can include sweeping, scraping, washing and degreasing. Sometimes multiple washings are required.
If not completely prepared properly, you may find that the coating or paint did not take as well to your garage floor as you would have liked shortly after it's been completed.
When you call on Progressive Painting Inc. for a garage floor painting or coating project, you'll have the peace of mind of knowing that you are working with the experts. We will be sure that your garage floor is properly prepared for great results.
Depending on the coating or paint that you choose, there may be numerous steps between preparation of the surface and final application of the finish. Some coatings require very particular steps to happen to achieve the best results. Time can also be a factor. Applying some coatings too early or too late results in your garage floor looking only slightly better than it did before.
Our experts at Progressive Painting Inc. have consistent experience applying garage floor coatings and paint, and will have your garage looking great with much less aggravation than you are likely to experience if you try to take the job on yourself.
If you live in Seattle, Bellevue, Kent, Renton, Federal Way, Des Moines, University Place, Tacoma, Burien, Gig Harbor or other areas of the area and you'd like to have your garage floor coated or painted by one of the best painting contractors in the area, give us a call today.

Selecting A Paint
Selecting exterior paint is a very personal choice for most people. Many factors need to be considered when it comes to exterior house painting. And with so many colors of paint available, choosing a color can feel like an impossible task.
We will help you choose the type of paint that will work on the surface of your exterior. Vinyl, brick, wood and fiber-cement siding all have paints that work better or worse on them. Understanding what works best often comes from experience. The same is true for painting stucco finishes.
When selecting a paint color for your exterior many factors can come into play. Homeowners need to consider any homeowners association rules that would affect the color choice. Many Seattle homeowners will have their home repainted the same color, or a color very similar. That is the easy and safe decision.
Others will look for a more dramatic impact in a house painting project. If that's you, you should be sure to consider:
- Other houses in the neighborhood. Most homeowners don't want to pick a color that sticks out as inappropriate.
- What colors would fit with the original style and era of your home?
- Are you painting everything on the exterior of your home (doors, shudders, etc.) or just the walls?
That third question is a big one. It can be difficult for Seattle area homeowners to picture how the new color will be affected by its surroundings. It's one thing to hold a paint swatch up and a completely different thing when that color is painted on the entire house.
Taking care of the outdoor wood surfaces that you have on your property should not be overlooked. Many homeowners think about their deck primarily and may not consider other outdoor wood refinishing that needs to be done. Whether it's a fence, door, door frames, window frames or something else, you want to be sure that the wood surface is treated well and consistently refinished to prevent deterioration and maximize its life. Of course, it will look a lot better that way too.
Whatever the wood surface, you can trust the experienced experts at Progressive Painting Inc. to have it looking great.
Painting, staining and sealing can all be options for wood refinishing depending on a number of factors. Weather conditions can cause wood to deteriorate quickly, especially sunlight and precipitation. If the wood surface is not protected it will wear down faster, and need to be replaced.
To achieve great results, one of the most important steps is to prepare the wood. You can rest assured that we will not overlook this critical step.
Of course, when you are talking about something like a fence, you also need to consider safety and effectiveness. Both of those things are critical if you have kids or dogs. Before putting a finishing on your fence, we will make sure that it is structurally safe and effective.
