Interior Painting Services

After 30 years of painting, I am still amazed what a difference a nice professional paint job does to the interior of the home.  If the walls need spackle and prep work, we can repair the walls to a nice smooth finish.  If you desire an excellent scrubbable paint that can withstand the punishment of children and pets, we know what to recommend.

Kitchen Cabinet Painting Services

Due to the high cost of replacing kitchen cabinets, painting them has become a very popular option.  We painted our first set of kitchen cabinets in 1992, and since then we have painted 100’s more.  We have mastered the technique to give an amazingly smooth finish and a clear topcoat that makes the paint last a long time.  How long?  How about a 5-year warranty against chipping and peeling.

Use of the Best Paint Brands

It’s not uncommon for most painting companies to get comfortable with one or two companies paint like Sherwin Williams or Ben Moore, but we utilize over 12 different brands of paint so we will match you up with the best product to match your needs and lifestyle.

Exterior Painting Services

Aluminum & Vinyl Siding Painting

Is your aluminum or vinyl siding starting to look final? Is your vinyl or aluminum siding starting to fade? If so, no problem. We can make it look brand new and paint it any color you like for a fraction of the cost of replacing it! Our method of painting aluminum and vinyl siding will have your house looking fresh and clean for years. And don’t worry about the paint not holding up in Westminster or any other area in Carroll County, because our process and products are warranted from chipping and or peeling for 6 full years!

Older Homes or Exterior Historic Homes

Older homes require different prep work and products than newer homes.  We are a lead certified company, meaning we are trained on how to work with older homes and properly keep lead chips in the work area as well as encapsulate the lead paint properly to make it safe for your family.  We also know the proper prepping procedures and topcoats that will not only protect your home, but have the paint lasting much longer than the standard scrape and paint job.  Whether your home is in Northern Carroll County like Taneytown or the southern part of the county in Sykesville, our prep and paint jobs will hold up to the dramatically changing seasons that your house endures.  We have Carroll County covered.  Klappenberger & Son was recently commissioned to paint the exterior of the Riverdale Mansion, and the details of the project can be found on our blog.

Man Prepping a home to paint in NW DC
Interesting Factoid

Did you know that George Washington mentioned Taneytown when he said, “Tan-nee town is but a small place with only the Street through wch.(sic) the road passes, built on. The buildings are mostly made of wood.”

Power Washing Services

No longer do you have to call a power washing company, followed by a handyman company and then a painting company.  Klappenberger & Son has you covered from the beginning of your project to the end.  Klappenberger & Son is a one-stop-shop for painting and exterior repairs or replacement of rotten wood.  It is standard practice to powerwash the exterior of a home, deck or fence prior to painting or sealing.  How you power wash is another story.  Our philosophy is to let the chemicals do the work, NOT the pressure from the power washer.  We use the proper chemicals to prepare the surface without harming the substrate or the environment.  Do you have a deck 5-10 years old and you want it to look new again?  We can help get the deck looking new again by using wood brightener and bleach.

What Separates Us

Unfortunately, our industry has its share of unlicensed contractors.  Over 30 years ago, we decided to do our part and do things the right way.  We have been licensed and insured since 1990. 

  • We will respect your home and treat it like it is your castle because it is.
  • When we start a job, we stay until it is completed. Well, we do go home at the end of each day, but we don’t take the techs off your job and leave you wondering where everyone is. 
  • Our policy is to communicate with you and give you daily updates.  It has been our experience that better communication avoids and solves problems
