Clients are to move all small/breakable items, lawn furniture, decorations, lighting, and other moveable obstacles away from the area to be painted. Clients are also responsible for having trees, shrubs, and other vegetation that will impede painting/repairs, trimmed back or removed.

Exterior pressure wash

Our pros pressure wash before EVERY exterior paint job to remove failed paint, surface dirt, mold, mildew and debris. By cleaning off all of the filth, we can make sure the fresh coat of paint goes on smoothly and stays on!



We make sure to mask off all windows and trim that will not be painted to protect the surfaces and allow for clean lines.


Caulk all gaps 1/8″ or larger around windows, doors and fascia.

Time to Paint!

Time to paint! Most exteriors done by our pros at MacFarland Painting are sprayed. Spraying 1 coat achieves the same mil thickness as 2 coats of paint.

PLEASE NOTE: Our paint containes primer. We do not take a step to prime before we paint.

If your quote specifies, we may brush and roll specific areas of the home (such as the trim).

Finishing touches & clean up

Our crews never leave a mess behind! All coverings, masking, paint chips and other debris are removed once the job is completed.

Your Project Manager will also carefully inspect the completed project to ensure it meets our high standards before we ask you to conduct a walkthrough. If there are any areas that need to be touched-up we will do this now.


We will never leave with an unsatisfied client. Upon completion of the job we will ask the homeowner to walk around the home. If they spot any areas of concern we will complete them in real time. All areas of concern after we depart from the job will be handled with our front office.
