Kruse Painting provides house painting in the Portland, OR metropolitan area including:
We are a house painting company for interior and exterior house painting, pressure washing, and more.
Since 1990, we have been the residential painting contractor of choice for many residents in the Portland area. Our customers have come to know our reputation for top quality work at a price that is very affordable. A key to our success is that we know how to deliver work that we can be proud of, but we work efficiently enough that we don’t have to overcharge our customers for our services. Not all companies are able to find that perfect balance.
We are reminded of that sometimes when a customer calls us after having a bad experience with a different company. They might be calling us in to “take over” and do the job the right way. It’s unfortunate that there are contractors that do poor work, but we don’t mind coming in as the heroes in a situation like that.
As a professional residential contractor, we are able to perform a variety of services:
Interior House Painting
For interior house painting, we will come out and take a look at the room(s) you are considering and give you a complete written estimate.
We will also help with choices regarding the type of paint to use, offer color suggestions, and estimate on how much will be needed. All of these details need to be worked out before any painting can begin.
A primer coat is just as important on interior walls as it is for the exterior. We move the furniture out of the room and make sure anything left in the room is covered securely before applying the primer coat. We also have very efficient methods of applying the paint itself, so that the work does not take as long as some of our customers expect. We have been doing this for a long time, and our experience shows. Give us a call to discuss your project – we are happy to help! Read more…
Exterior House Painting
One of the jobs that we perform most often is exterior house painting. We have done hundreds of these over the years so we have the skills and experience to get the job done right the first time.
We will come out and take a look at your house first, in order to provide you with a complete written estimate. We don’t do estimates by phone, because we want to make sure that the information we provide to you is accurate. The estimate should include all costs, and the amount of time it will take to complete the work.
Before we actually begin applying paint to the exterior of your house, we have to make sure the surface is clean of dirt and other debris and contaminants. This is done by pressure washing. The use of high-pressure water mixed with a cleansing agent gives us a surface that is free of dirt, grime and flaking or peeling paint. This preparation is critical to insure that the new paint adheres to the surface successfully.
We also apply a coat of primer before putting the paint on. The primer acts as a sealant to protect the house itself, and it also gives the a more secure surface to attach itself to. This means the it will last longer. Applying the actual paint is actually one of the final steps in the overall process. We do that in a very detailed style so that every square inch gets covered, and of course we handle all clean-up work after the job is done. Read more…
In addition to pressure washing the exterior of a house in preparation for paint, pressure washing serves other purposes as well. Often we will pressure wash a deck, and you will be surprised at the difference in appearance. Vinyl siding doesn’t need to be painted, but our high-pressure water combined with a gentle soap can make it look like new. We also use it for removing moss that has accumulated on the roof, or for removing debris from the roof that has fallen out of nearby trees. Read more…
Kruse Painting also specializes in deck and fence staining. Our process begins first with a thorough pressure washing to clean and prepare the surface to receive the stain. After drying, we apply the stain using various applications based on the substrate. We frequently use brush-and-roll, wiping and spray techniques. Read more…
