Bixby Exterior Paint Job and Wood Repair

Project Overview


We completed this exterior paint job in Bixby Oklahoma.  There were several areas of rotten wood due to water.

This house was painted using Sherwin Williams Duration exterior latex paint.  Duration is a LifeTime warrantied paint.  It applies thick and covers extremely well.  It is also self priming.

There were several areas of dry rot that needed to be taken care of.  The brick moulding around one of the back doors was rotting at the bottom.  The biggest repairs were made to two posts in the back of the house that hold up a large section of roof.

More Info


This is fairly typical painting project for us.  Several wood repairs, standard scraping, caulking, priming and painting.

We repainted this house with the same color.  In this case, SW7017.  The shutters were painted Tricorn Black.

Tulsa Cabinet Glaze and Paint Job

Project Overview


We repainted this set of kitchen cabinets in Claremore.  The client wanted to change the color of the cabinets, give them a clean and durable finish, and glaze/faux finish the island to match another piece they had in the dining room.

We painted all the cabinets a slight off white color (Sherwin Williams Moderate white) to match the backsplash tile and floor tiles.

We painted the cabinets with an oil based enamel paint that gets very hard and is very durable.  It is a one part system.  In this instance, the doors are sprayed, and cabinet boxes were brushed by hand.

More Info


We start off all kitchen cabinet projects by creating a dust/fume barier around the work area.  In this case, we erected a wall of plastic using sheet plastic and poles designed for the task.

Next we remove all the hardware and safety store it until we are ready to re-install everything.

The doors, drawers and shelves are taken to the shop to get prepped and sprayed.

Tulsa Colonial Exterior Paint Job with Lead Paint

Project Overview


This Colonial repaint near downtown Tulsa was a very interesting project.  It was badly peeling, had a lot of rotted soffit, and all the paint was seriously failing.  It was a big undertaking to prepare it and we had to use lead safe painting practices throughout.

It was an ugly brown color with white trim throughout.  The colors we put on were from the Sherwin Williams Heritage collection.  A nice taupe for the body and a rich yellow/tan for the trim work.  We added a bright red accent for the front door and detail accents around the soffit corbels.

It was quite an project getting all that flaking and failing paint off without getting lead dust and debri all over the place.  It is important to use lead safe work practices and EPA certified workers to do a project like this.  Luckily, Dukes Painting is fully licensed for lead based paint work.

More Info


We started off by checking to verify that there was lead based paint throughout this house.  We tested the front and back and both sides for lead based paint.  The text came up possitive so we knew we would have to follow lead safe guidlines.

We attached 10 foot of plastic to the bottom of the house all the way around and steaked it out with wooden stakes and heavy boards and rocks.  This is to make sure that the paint scrapings and old lead encased wood wouldnt get into the dirt below.  It allows us to collect all the chips without makeing a huge mess.

After all the plastic was in place,  I removed and replaced the rotten areas of the soffit.  There were several.

Then, we hand scraped all of the peeling paint.  There was a lot of peeling paint.  It appeared as if the house had been painted within the last 10 years but it was just sprayed on without any prep work at all.  I found bugs, dirt, peeling paint, and other debri under the latest layer of paint.  Needless to say it was in bad shape.  Hand scraping this house took up most of the time on this job.

After scraping, it was time to caulk.  There was also a lot of caulk to do on this house.  I used Sherwin Williams 950A 55 year caulk on this Tulsa paint job. I went through at least 4 cases of caulk before it was all finished.  Huge gaps and holes were abundant.

Next up came the painting.  We sprayed the body color on using an airless sprayer and back brushed every square inch of it.  Back brushing is essential when it comes to a paint job like this.  It forces the paint into all the cracks, nooks, and crannies and allows for the best adhesion.  Be warry of anyone who says they can just spray the siding.  It will not last.

Then we painted two coats of paint on the trim by hand using brush and roller techniques.

The last step of the process was doing the accent color on the front door and on the corbels.  It make the house pop.  Then it was just a quick clean up because most of the mess was contained by the plastic layer on the ground.

Owasso Cabinet Paint

Project Overview


This interior paint project was located in Owasso OK.  We were asked to prepare and repaint the kitchen cabinets, along with the vanities and cabinets in two bathrooms.

We also painted the trim and doors in the kitchen to match.  The cabinets were clear coated oak before we began.  We used Sherwin Williams Pro Classic Oil on this owasso painter project.

Cabinet Painting can be an expensive and time consuming process as there is a lot of prep and skill involved in painting them.  Dukes Painting has extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to cabinet finishes and interior painting.

More Info


Since the kitchen cabinets were stain grade to begin with, there was a lot of prep work in this paint project.  We began by removing all of the doors and transporting them back to our shop for preparation and paint.  We prep this type of cabinet by sanding everything we are going to paint with 150 grit and then 220 grit sand paper.  Then we remove all the dust with tack cloths and vacuum cleaners.

Next we prime all of the wooden cabinets with a high quality oil based primer.  Since these were oak cabinets, the grain of the oak posed a small problem.  Primer must be worked into all of the little groves created by the oak grain.  Next we caulked all of the cracks and filled any nicks with wood filler.  After a final sanding with 220 grit sandpaper the cabinets are ready to paint.  On the doors we applied 2 coats of Sherwin Williams Pro Classic Oil based paint.  We choose this paint for ist wonderful self leveling properties.  This paint can be brushed on and the brush lines will dissapear before the paint dries creating a sprayed on finish.

The doors were sprayed two coats and the cabinet boxes were brushed and rolled three coats using an oil based brush and foam rollers.  After finishing all the paint work we returned the cabinets to the property for re-installation.  In this particular paint project, we replaced the old hinges with new modern hinges.  We also drilled holes to install drawer and door pulls where there weren’t any to begin with.

South Tulsa Exterior Painter

Project Overview


This South Tulsa house was in pretty bad shape before we got our hands on it.  The paint was peeling badly,  large cracks throughout the caulk, and several areas of severe rot.  We replaced 1 full sheet of t1-11 siding which was very badly deteriorated.  We replaced several sections of brick molding around windows, and we replaced a significant amount of fascia board running along the roof.

More Info


After replacing all of the rotted areas on the house, we followed our standard procedure for exterior paint work.  We power washed the exterior to remove built up dirt and grime.  We then scraped all the peeling paint away with hand scrapers.  Priming comes next.  We use a high grade exterior wood primer on all bare spots.  Next we caulk.  This house had a significant amount of caulk damage.  A lot of it was cracked.  A lot of the caulk was simply missing.  And a lot of the caulk was never done in the first place.   After removing as much failed caulk as possible we re-caulked the house with Sherwin williams 950A Caulk.  It is a siliconized latex caulk that is rated for 35 years.   It goes on smooth and lasts a long time.  We used over 2 cases of caulk on this one house.

After all the prep was finished we used Sherwin Williams Super Paint (25 year warranty) to paint the body of the house.  We used our Spray – Brush – Spray method throughout.  The trim was all hand painted using the same product.

Cherry street Bungalow

  • After

Project Overview


This Midtown Tulsa bungalow was in very bad shape.  It was plagued with peeling paint, rotten wood, and bad caulk.  The color was hideous and it was the sore spot on an otherwise peasant street.

More Info


We began by washing and scraping this old house and getting the paint back down to solid a solid surface to build upon.  We then sprayed the entire thing with Peel Bond.  Peel Bond is a high build primer that hides surface imperfections.  It can be sprayed up to 40 mils thick in one pass.  This product is not cheap but it does a great job and the results speak for themselves.

Afterwards we caulked all the cracks in the residence and painted the exterior with Sherwin Williams Duration coating.  This is a lifetime guaranteed product and is top of the line.  You would be hard pressed to find a better coating.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL

Dukes painting did a great job at a great price. I did quite a bit of research before I hired Dukes, and chose them because I felt that they were the most knowledgeable and professional of all the painters I spoke to. I have an old house with almost 100 years of built up, cracked, alligatored, and peeling paint on the outside. In the high traffic areas, they smoothed the siding out such that it looked brand new — not an easy task. Every thing looks great. We went from the ugliest house on the block, to the nicest looking one after Dukes was done with it.

Owasso window repair and repaint Dukes painting

Owasso window repair and paint

Project Overview


The brick molding on all of the front windows on this house were rotted.  Water damage had rotted the window trim to the point that it was nearly disintegrated.  We removed the old rotten trim and replaced it with PVC brick molding.  This type of trim is made of vinyl plastic and is impervious to the weather, insects, and water damage.  The new trim will last for decades.

We then caulked and painted the newly installed trim.

In addition to this we painted the shutters on the front of the house.  They were faded and needed to be freshened up.

More Info


After receiving several estimates for work that needed to be done on our home, we chose Dukes Painting.  Marty Dukes did an outstanding job on our exterior painting!  His professionalism, attention to detail and excellent work made us look forward to hiring him again!  He took care of more than we had asked once he realized that the wood around our windows needed to be replaced, not just painted.  We appreciate his honesty and great skills. More important than paint on our house, he was so kind to our two small children who were interested in watching him work for two days!  They kept a close eye on him and he was a great sport!  Thank you, Marty for taking care of our home’s curb appeal! Thanks so much for everything!!!

Broken Arrow with Peeling Paint Dukes Painting

Broken Arrow With Peeling Paint

Project Overview


This two story house had some serious peeling problems. It seems like many of the houses in this neighborhood are having the same problems so it leads me to believe there was a problem with the siding or the original builder. There were large sections of paint that needed to be removed before we were able to prepare and paint the house. We removed the majority of the peeling paint with our pressure washer and then hand scraped the rest until all the paint that was left was securely attached to the house.

We then primed all the bares spots and did the rest of our preparation as usual.
