Western Accents’ trained craftspeople strive to be well-educated regarding the essentials of painting technical data. With the development of low VOC paints and a variety of specialty coatings as well as eco-friendly products it’s important to hire a painting contractor familiar with recommending the appropriate coating or paint for specific outcomes. In addition, the overall success of a painting project depends heavily on a contractor’s knowledge of proper surface preparation. As a member of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA), Western Accents Painting has access to the most up-to-date technical data regarding surface preparation and coatings applications.
