The acrylics offer superior performance (they don't harden with age, the way oils do, so they move and breathe without blistering), they don't mildew as readily, and they emit fewer VOCs, so they comply with new air-quality regulations. They also work over both oil- and water-based primers.
You will have a choice of four basic paint sheen groupings: flat or matte, satin/eggshell, semi-gloss, and gloss.

Excellent service. Very dependable. They have shown up every time and always do a professional job. I never worry about what the outcome is. They are consistent and predictable. I have also used them for some irrigation issues I had, and they resolved the issue perfectly. I am looking forward to continued excellent service, and some future additions. Thank you! "
