Front Door Painting in St. Petersburg

Front Door Painting and Exterior Door Staining in the St. Petersburg, FL area

The threshold to your house sets the tone for your home and welcomes visitors. First impressions about your home start with your front door. At Carlson's Proficient Painting in St. Petersburg we know door painting and door staining are not the same as painting a wall. The process for front door painting and staining as well as other important exterior doors requires attention to the smallest detail, special tools and expertise.

A front door often endures direct sunlight and pounding rain. Because it is one of the most used doors in your house it can also have the most nicks and scratches. Unfortunately, it does not take long for your front door to look old or dingy under such circumstances.

Home Door Painting FAQs


What Color Should You Not Paint Your Front Door?

For many years homeowners were advised to avoid orange paint on their front door. Orange faded quickly and was hard to retouch and maintain. However, with new advancements in paint technology fading and matching any color of paint is no longer a problem. Homeowners should feel free to choose any color of paint they like.

What Are the Best Conditions to Paint a Front Door?

An overall general rule of thumb is that oil-based paint can be applied when the temperatures are between 40?- 90? F and latex paint is best applied between 50?- 85? F.

In What Order Do You Paint a Front Door?

At Carlson's Proficient Painting, we let each side of the door dry before turning it over to work on the other side. Our team adds at least two coats of paint to the door, using three or more if customers want to increase the color saturation.

Testimonials

  • reviewiconWe would give Carlson's 20 stars if possible!
    Eric and his crew were a pleasure to work with. He scheduled a day/time to come review the job. He was right on time! He kept in communication with his quote which was extremely reasonable, the timing of the job, and what we wanted for paint colors, etc. He uses high quality Sherwin Williams paint. On the first day of the job, he arrived with his crew, Eddie, Kurt and Mark to review the job with them. The guys were very professional, friendly, and paid attention to all the details. They cleaned up at the end of the day before leaving. They did an amazing job painting our condo. It looks brand new and we have had fun showing our neighbors and passing the word that they need to call Carlson's for their painting needs. (We live in a 55+ complex). We highly recommend Carlson's Proficient Painting. Thank you Eric and crew!!

    Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Negative: None Carlson's is not just Proficient, they're also Professional, Punctual and Personable, and, well, all around good guys. After getting multiple bids to paint our two-story house, we selected Eric and his crew. Not only did they offer one of the best prices, but they also provided the most detailed quote, as well as the most in-depth bid package from Sherwin Williams (which explained every step of the prep, repairing, sealing and painting process). It's obvious Eric truly cares about his work (and so does his crew). He's a man of his word, and won't stop until he gets it right. Integrity is a hard thing to find nowadays; Eric has it. We'll be using him again, and referring him to friends. We've had so many compliments on the job Carlson's did; heck, half the neighborhood wants him to do their houses!

    Mr. Carlson WAS ON TIME EVERY TIME!!! On our first meeting everything was explained, the time line the painting process the quality of the paint he would use and the equipment he would be using. Mr. Carlson also took the time to explain to my neighbors what he was going to do and any impact it would have on there property (there was none). The painting of my house meet all my expectations and more. No over spray on my plaints or grass, the cleanup process was undetectable! Mr. Carlson also painted my Aunts house with the same professional results. Job Well Done!

    If I could give Eric and Carlson's Proficient Painting SIX stars, I would. Reasonable prices, super efficient. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the results! Also, initially there was a little miscommunication about the color paint we wanted and he had already ordered the paint. However, he was super understanding and ate the costs of the other paint and ordered the paint we actually wanted without hesitation! He and his crew came back several times to do touch-ups to make it looks absolutely perfect. If you want a HIGH PROFESSIONAL QUALITY paint job at budget prices, Eric at Carlson's is your man!!

    Carlson's Proficient Paint did an excellent job on painting my house inside and out and installing my windows. The price was great and I couldn't have asked for any better customer service. They were on time, courteous and very professional. I would recommend Carlson's Proficient Painting to anyone looking for a great job done and one done right the first time.
