Mark Tirondola Painting Contractor’s professional crews can skillfully transform the exterior of your home. Meticulous attention is taken and used in conjunction with the perfected Tirondola method during the preparation stage. The process is broken down into the following steps: several levels of sanding are used to create an ideal surface that allows the paint to be as smooth as possible. Oil based primer, caulk and putty are applied where needed. When primer is dry, the house is sanded smooth. Windows will be scraped, primed, re-glazed (where needed), and razor glass cleaned.
