Exterior Painting of Homes and Commercial Buildings

Frederick County Exterior Painting project

Over the past 10 years or so painting products have really changed for the better. Products that are part water based and part oil passed are fused together to give the consumer the best of both worlds. The latex gives flexibility for the expanding and contrasting of the wood during the year and the oil gives durability and a hard-outer shell. Primers have also improved dramatically. One particular primer called Mad Dog can last up to 20 years with 2 coats of premium grade paint. I have been using that primer for 7 years and so far have had no issues of peeling paint.

Is your vinyl or aluminum paint losing its luster?

If so, we have the perfect remedy to make you siding look brand new. That’s no joke. Our cleaning process and application process of spray painting your aluminum or vinyl siding will make it look as good as it did on its first day. And don’t worry about overspray because we got that covered.

Is it time to paint your brick?

Over the last 10 years or so more people are painting their brick than ever before. One reason for this is some brick is just not that attractive in today’s beholders. But a second reason is when there are two different types of siding on the front of the house, it can look “chopped up” which in turn makes the house look smaller. Painting the brick the same color as the siding gives a more uniform look and certainly a less choppy or divided appearance.

Historical Restoration Work

professional painters restoring historical building

As I mentioned above, there are a lot of great new products out on the market and unfortunately many painting contractors are not aware of them or choose not to use them. Klappenberger & Son has been at the forefront of learning and using the latest products to give our customers the best quality job possible. That is why we have been asked to paint so many historical and registered landmarks! Does that mean we are expensive? No. It means we are professionals, trying to do a professional job at a fair price.

Some Historical Properties that we have worked that you might be familiar with:
• Riversdale Mansion
• White House
• Pentagon
• Multiple Smithsonian’s

Power-Washing Services

Our goal is to clean the surfaces as gently as possible to allow the chemicals to do the work. The power washing chemicals we use will not harm your plants or grass. We always try to use a low amount of pressure and allow the chemicals to do the work. This greatly reduces the chance of damage to the substrates that we are trying to paint and ultimately protect. Surfaces we routinely power wash throughout Frederick County include decks, fences, wood siding, aluminum siding, vinyl siding, sidewalks, gutters, stucco and Dryvit.

Interior Painting of Homes and Commercial Buildings

Having an unknown team of professional painters come into your home to paint certainly has bred its share of horror stories. We have been painting for 30 years and have heard our share of horror stories from customers past experiences. Be assured that when you choose Klappenberger & Son you are choosing a reliable, prompt, experienced, and trained painter who all have at least 5 years of experience. But don’t take my word for it. Our painting company gets reviewed by a third party (Guild) and is given access to all our painting and handyman customers from the previous 12 months. They will randomly call 130 or so customers. Here are the unabridged, unedited responses from all those customers.

If so, that is one of our specialties! We use a primer that fuses with the existing finish on your cabinets and then spray self-leveling cabinet grade paint on your doors and drawers. The remaining cabinets are brushed and rolled in the same procedure making your cabinets looks showroom new for a fraction of the cost of replacing them.
