Green Painting

Environmentally Friendly - Green Painting
With all the hoopla about saving water, protecting trees and minimizing waste; how many are really doing it? Or significantly making an impact on reducing their carbon foot print on the environment around us? Are you using a green painting company?  Many may not know that; one of the most toxic products you can put in our environment is paint. Much of what you find on the shelves today concerning paint and painting products have VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds); making your home, office or any indoor area a potentially toxic environment!  The materials and paint we use have little or no VOC’s; making your home, office or any indoor area much healthier! Our paint meets the highest standards as monitored by the EPA. Most painting companies don’t even consider this concept. Make sure the painting contractor you are using does! Hire a green painter for your next painting project.   In all aspects at Pro Color Painting we protect and respect the …

Tough Times

Tough Times.

They bring the best and worst out in people,,,,often, the reason for certain circumstances isn't known. We have to choose whether or not to learn from them and improve or repeat and go through all that encompasses!

Having a full understanding of why God will sometimes allow certain things to happen that we perceive as bad....your faith in the Lord may be hindered all the way to your soul. Remembering that all is for your own good in His perfect plan!



Tough times don’t last, but tough people do. And I’ve been through some tough times, and I know a lot of people can recall tough times, and maybe are going through some tough times right now, but they don’t last.” — Alonzo Mourning

Keep doing what you know is right, consistently; and all will work out for the best in the end!

Pressure Cleaning Safety

Pressure Cleaning Safety


One thing that is super important to touch on and many wanted to see was....the safety aspect of using pressure washers. Power washing in Florida is quite commonly needed due to the wet climate. This brings many home owners "bravery" levels up to renting and attacking pressure washing for the first time.

The fact is the high pressure that some pressure washers produce can be fatal if directed at the human body. Did you know that the air and water forced from the machine (2000-5000 psi) can actually penetrate the skin and potentially send air to the heart thru the blood stream?

At the very least, severe pain, swelling and even severe cuts can open the skin. Most times requiring medical treatment and stitches. Pressure washing can be very dangerous if not executed by industry professionals.

So please, be careful out there using pressure cleaners; always be sure to receive the proper training.

Quality Materials For Successful Paint Projects

Use Quality Materials For Your Painting

Materials
The #1 reason why most people have painting problems is selection of materials. There is no such thing as a good inexpensive can of paint! You usually get exactly what you pay for, paint being no exception. Be careful choosing paint for the home.

Better quality coatings will give more square footage per gallon, easy touch up and longer life. Invest in a quality product from the start. After all, you don't want to be painting your apartment or house again in 12 months because of “cheap” materials

Which Paint to Buy
Quality is determined by the grade and type of pigments and resins or binders.
Don't just buy name brand and think you are purchasing a good quality product. All manufacturers make an inexpensive paint, they provide for all markets.

A $10 a gallon of low grade flat paint offers color and a new finish. Don't try to wash or touch it up it won't hold up. A $30-$60 gallon of the same manufacturers top line paint has…

Custom Painting Effects

Custom Painting Effects.... ProColorJax.com

Faux Painting is the application of paint to imitate the look of a different surface. Usually it mimics stone, such as marble, aged limestone, or slate. It can also be made to look like clouds, wood, animal skin, or metals.

Any home or commercial painter knows that, most faux painting is achieved by positive and negative paint application. Positive application refers to adding paint to a surface. Negative application means removing paint. Layering paints with tools other than brushes, such as rags, leather, mitts, and feathers, will achieve various looks.

Glazing is a popular application used most often on a thick texture. Glaze is a clear product that can be tinted with any color, then rubbed over a textured and painted wall. It produces a translucent topcoat through which the base color can be seen. Have the interior painter test the mixed glaze on a small area. Depending on the paint colors and texture, the depth created by glazing can mimi…
