Give Your Brick Home Old-World Charm with Lime Wash

Is your brick home’s exterior dated and ho-hum? Would it benefit from an innovative treatment to give it new life and become one of your neighborhood’s most admired homes?

Here’s a creative painting idea: consider trying Lime Wash, a process from Benjamin Moore paints.

Freeland Painting has used Lime Wash with great success—most recently on the Johnson residence in Suwanee, Georgia.

Check out Freeland Painting founder Doug Ireland explaining the process in this video:

Lime Wash is a custom process. Freeland Painting professionals create it by applying a Benjamin Moore painting product and then expertly performing a wash-off with pressure washing. It’s a unique process that Freeland Painting has mastered.

“We custom-created this look for the homeowners, and tested it until the homeowners said, ‘Yes! That’s it! That’s the look we want!’” Doug explained.

The end result looks so cool―like a German Schmear.

What’s a German Schmear, you ask? Home improvement gurus from Bob Vila to HGTV rave about the German Schmear process to transform any brick element on your home with the look of an elegant, cozy European cottage. It’s a “perfectly imperfect” way to update your brick home in style.

Lime Wash will give your home instant Old World charm—but without the 200-year wait!

The Johnsons were delighted with the results of their home’s new Lime Wash update: “We’re very pleased with this process. Freeland Painting provided very professional service. We would do it again if we had other properties. You have to try this!” said Mrs. Johnson.

Can I get my business painted after hours?

When customers walk into your place of business, you want their first impression to be positive. One of the most cost-effective ways to enhance first impressions is with a fresh coat of paint on your commercial building’s exterior and interior. However, shutting down your business for several days to get it painted can impact your bottom line. So, what’s a business owner to do?

Freeland Painting to the rescue: We’ll paint your business after regular operating hours so you can stay open.

Proven Experience

“Freeland Painting has proven experience with helping business owners get a high-quality paint job while keeping their doors open. In 2020, our skilled professionals painted seven different banks after hours,” said Doug Ireland, founder and CEO of Freeland Painting. “The banking industry is the most regulated industry in the country. To meet its strict requirements, we completed these paint jobs in the evenings between 5 pm and 12 midnight, and we worked closely with the customers to ensure their needs were met.”

Freeland’s After-Hours Service is an ideal option for any customer-facing industry—salons, dry cleaners, retail, healthcare, hospitality—that doesn’t want to disrupt operations with painters and contractors beautifying the building during its normal business hours.

Exceeding Expectations

At Freeland Painting, relationships matter more than the brush or the ladder.

“On the strength of last year’s jobs painting banks after hours, we’re on track to paint more than 50 additional banks in 2021,” Ireland continued. “We’re pleased that our customers trust Freeland Painting to do the job right and to complete the work after hours so it won’t impact their profitability.”

Upgrading your place of business to keep it looking its best is an important consideration for business owners, and one you don’t want to delay. When customers see chipped paint or scuffed walls, they may take those cues as an indication that you’re not a detail-oriented business owner.

It’s the little details that customers appreciate. At Freeland Painting, we brush up on details every day. If your business needs a new roof, new or repaired siding, new gutters, or light carpentry work to enhance its appearance, Freeland Painting is the right contractor for your job.

Nothing enhances the first impression your business makes like a fresh coat of paint.

Will Pollen Ruin My Exterior Paint Job?

Spring is in the air! Can you feel it?

If you’re in the Greater Atlanta region, you can probably SEE it.

While you can’t actually “see” Spring in the air, you can see pollen, a sure sign of Spring.

You know pollen: That wispy, yellow-green coating that inspires kids to write “Wash me!” on cars coated with pollen. (You’ve seen that car driving around, right?)

According to Wikipedia, pollen is “a powdery substance consisting of pollen grains which are male microgametophytes of seed plants, which produce male gametes (sperm cells).”

In other words, pollen is essentially plant sperm. And it coats everything in April and May, making a mess of the outside world all so that trees and plants can reproduce.

So, how does pollen season impact your outside paint job? Let’s explore it.

Springtime is Paint-time

Spring is an ideal time to paint your home, commercial property, or multi-family dwelling. By painting early in the year, you’ll maximize the life of your new paint job and beautify your home or office for the coming summer months.

Good news: a little pollen blowing through the air will not ruin the finish or overall outcome of your gorgeous new paint job.

Pollen will not affect the paint Freeland Painting uses to beautify your exterior. That’s one reason we use water-based acrylic exterior paint: it dries super-fast, so it is essentially immune to falling pollen. Pollen has no negative effect on the color, finish, or durability of your fresh paint job.

We’ll say it again for emphasis: Pollen has no negative effect on the color, finish or durability of your fresh paint job. It won’t shorten the lifespan of your home or business exterior coating or finishes.

Blow It Off

When we say “blow it off” we don’t mean your paint job: We mean the pollen! Pollen is such a fine, light dust that it can easily be blown, wiped, or rinsed away before your paint job begins.

That’s why Freeland Painting pressure washes your commercial building, multi-family dwelling or home before we begin every paint job. As professional painters who do the job right, we careful prepare the surface so that it’s clean and free of debris to assure the paint adheres properly.

To ensure that your fresh coat of paint will continue to shine—even during Atlanta’s notorious pollen season—choose a professional, quality painting company with proven experience.
