MY HOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1950. ARE YOU LEAD CERTIFIED TO PAINT MY HOUSE?
Denver Colours Painting Company ™ is EPA Lead Certified. If your house or building was built before 1978, it is likely that there is lead in the paint. In 2008 the EPA created a mandate that states that if contractors are to perform work that would interfere with lead-based paint, including any Renovation, Repairs, and Painting (RRP), they must be EPA lead-safe certified in order to handle the project correctly and safely. For more information visit the EPA's website as it is crucial to choose a contractor that is EPA Lead RRP certified.

This includes, but is not limited to, patching/fixing holes, caulking, replacing wall paneling, nail removal., etc. We would be happy to discuss the details associated with your property throughout the whole process.

HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT MY PAINT JOB WILL LAST AS LONG AS POSSIBLE?

Then wipe off any excess soap with water.
In order to extend the life of an exterior paint job, it should be power washed every 2-3 years.
