When you call on Woodiwiss, our first step is to ask you questions to discover what we can do to give you the paint job of your dreams. Each home is different, and each customer has unique wants and needs — we want to find out how we can give you what you are looking for. From there, we can give you an honest estimate for your job; our estimators are trained to identify how we can give you the best outcome that will meet both our standards and your expectations. If you’re satisfied with our estimate, we’ll schedule a time to get started. With each of our jobs, we follow the following process.
THE WOODIWISS WAY

3. RECEIVE THE PAINT JOB OF YOUR DREAMS
We prepare, plan, and execute, following our process giving you the paint job of your dreams!
To start, we will powerwash your home to remove dirt, debris, and surface contaminants. If mildew and mold are present we will treat the area with mildewcide and wash the surfaces clean. If your home is built before 1978 we will clean your home by hand to comply with California’s RRP Rule regarding the presence of lead in the first coats of paint on your home.
We will move your chairs, BBQ, exterior decorations, and other outdoor furnishings to a safe place while we are working. We will also cover cement, plants, and nearby grass to protect from damage or stains.
3. Surface Preparation
We will hammer in all loose nails and scrape the siding and wood trim on your home with an extremely sharp carbide blade scrapers to remove all loose paint. Stucco cracks will be repaired with an elastomeric filler that matches the texture on your stucco. If stucco damage we will repair with a flexible stucco patching material that allows for movement in the future.
4. Wood Repair
Our Job Lead will inspect the siding and wood trim for dry rot and determine if replacement is needed, or if the area can be repaired with a two-part epoxy. Any repairs beyond the scope of our original bid will be pointed out to you, and a written change order will be presented to you for approval prior to commencement of additional work.
5. Sealing the Surface
Loose caulking is cut out and removed. We will prime surfaces with appropriate primers to block stains and give a sound surface for the new paint to adhere. Our team will apply new caulking in all areas needed to prevent water intrusion into your home.
Our Production Manager will inspect the preparation with our Job Lead to ensure that our standards have been met, that all of the areas of your home are ready for paint.
7. Applying the Paint
We will cover the windows, doors, lights, and all other areas that require protection. Our team will apply paint with brush, roller, or sprayer, ensuring two complete uniform coats of paint are applied to your home, in order to protect it for years to come.
8. Inspection and Touch-Up
As we apply the final touches to your home we will inspect again to confirm that the work meets our standards, taking care of all details as needed to give your home the protection that it deserves.
9. Final Walkthrough
Our Project Manager will meet you for a final inspection, to take care of any remaining items, label your paint cans, and take care of outstanding payments.
10. Five-Star Satisfaction
