    Premium, Specialized Painting Products Make All The Difference

    CertaPro Painters of Madison County, IL, Webster Groves & Florissant, MO uses only the best products from the most reputable manufacturers: Sherwin Williams paint, ICI/Glidden paint, and Benjamin Moore paint, as well as specialty primers and paints to meet specific challenges. 

    But it isn't just about the quality of the paint - all the paints from these vendors are very good. Rather, it is about picking the appropriate product for your particular situation because paint technology has gotten very specialized in the last few years. The combination of our years of experience and close ties with our manufacturer representatives means we are always up-to-date on the latest paint innovations. Here is just a brief overview:

    Primers – Different formulations exist from all the major vendors to address specific applications – wood primers are different from stucco/masonry primers, which are both different from metal primers. Then there are specialty primers for sealing in stains or for providing maximum adhesion or for waterproofing stucco/masonry walls with a history of water problems.  It sounds complicated, but we have the know-how and experience to select just the right ones for your project.

    Paints – Forget oil paint, today’s paints are almost all latex-based products, the best of which use 100% acrylic resin and are called acrylic paints. The differences come in the formulations that determine how these paints perform is specific environments. 

    Some dry very tight, which is very good for new construction, but not so good for a home with lots of layers of older paint. Some are highly elastic, which is good on wood when it expands and contracts with the weather, but it doesn’t do anything for stucco/masonry surfaces. Some are even designed to perform well in very high moisture environments. And some perform well in areas with high temperature extremes. Yet again, we handle selecting the right ones for your particular project and explain why the selected paint system is right for you.

    Stains – semi-transparent stains provide a layer of color to wood but allow the grain to show through, while semi-solid stains are more opaque and solid stains are totally opaque. To complicate it further, deck stains are different from stains used on house siding. Due to how stains soak into wood rather than creating a barrier on top of wood (as paints do), stains can be tricky to work with unless the applicator has experience, experience CertaPro has in spades.

    Caulks & Sealants – As with primers and paints, caulks and sealants are specialized. General purpose latex is appropriate for many situations, but the siliconized and urethane-based products solve many specific problems we encounter, although some of these are not paintable. Our crews are expert at knowing which to use and when, so sealing out drafts, water, and bugs will leave you warm, dry, and happy.
