No More Bubbling or Peeling Paint!

“SFW Painting did great on our exterior paint job. They were able to do a lot of much needed repair and prep on our old house before painting. They took care with lead safety precautions, our plants, and checking in about the cost of the prep work. There has been no bubbling or paint peeling. This was not the least expensive bid we got—but it was worth it. The paint looks very professional, fresh, and we think it will protect our house and last a long time!” — Maggie, from Portland (November 2023)
