Our two-story stucco house in south Bernal Hights was last painted in 2000, and was looking rather drab. But, great pixels were not our main concern. Most importantly, we were looking to waterproof, as much as possible, our windows and stucco. We had five south-facing leaking windows that were of special concern. Out of three estimates, we chose McCartney Painting mainly because owner Kieron McCartney was the most keen and knowledgeable about techniques to secure the house against the elements. Elastomeric painting (8-mm thick coating, I recall), three-point sealing, and Sika Flex caulking between exterior wall and concrete intersections were some of his applied techniques appropriate to the needs of stucco. Also, McCartney offered a senior discount (proof positive we look our age) without our asking, making his quote the lowest bid. Another company did not offer elastomeric paints at all. The experience with McCartney Painting was very positive. Kieron surveyed our home within a week of bid request, submitted an estimate and contract the following week, and placed us into his busy schedule. Power washing, patching the many stucco cracks (some deep), caulking and sealing the windows and four door frames, the house painting itself, and the ironwork staining and painting all went smoothly and efficiently. His crew was very punctual, courteous, and helpful with trim paint recommendations. They cleaned up after work each day. Kieron, a calm person with which to work and collaborate, was very responsive to any concerns we brought up. The result looks great, and inspired some neighbors to also paint their houses. McCartney Painting is well worth your consideration.
