Arizona House Painting Guide



While people may have mixed feelings about Homeowner’s Associations, there is no denying that their reputation for rules and bureaucracy is well-earned. Most HOAs have strict standards in place regarding everything from the paint colors that can be used on houses to the types of plants that can be grown in yards. This can make it difficult for homeowners to keep up with the latest rules and regulations. Our Professional Color Consultant speaks fluent HOA and can help to take the stress out of dealing with your HOA. We will handle everything from quickly getting the approved color palette to submitting any required paperwork. This way, you can focus on enjoying your home without having to worry about whether or not you are in compliance with your HOA’s rules.

How we deal with common issues

Painting the exterior of a home is no simple task – it requires time, patience, and a steady hand. But in Phoenix, where the sun is brutal and the heat is unrelenting, painting the exterior of a home presents even more challenges. The intense heat can cause paint to blister and fade, and can cause building materials to fail. At Crash of Rhinos Painting, we have over many years of experience painting homes in Phoenix, and we know how to navigate these challenges. We use high-quality paints that are designed to withstand the elements, and we take care to prep each surface before we start painting. As a result, we’re able to provide our clients with a flawless finish that will look great for years to come.

How we walk on clay tile roofs so they won’t crack

One of the most challenging aspects of working with clay roof tiles is their fragility. Because we have to walk on them during installation, they are susceptible to breakage. To mitigate this, we use bumpers – pieces of foam with plywood on top – to distribute the weight. While this helps, it’s still a delicate process and requires a lot of care to avoid damaging the tiles.

Painting a house with a zero lot line

When painting a home with a zero lot line, the biggest challenge is obtaining access to the neighbor’s yard so that side of the home can be painted. This will require obtaining permission from the neighbor, as well as coordinating multiple schedules so that the work can be completed on time. In addition, there may be obstacles in the way, such as fencing or landscaping, that need to be taken into account. However, with careful planning and communication, it is usually possible to overcome these challenges and successfully paint a home with a zero lot line.

How we replace and paint garage door trim

If you’re planning on painting your garage door trim, it’s important to first replace any damaged or old trim. Failing to do so can lead to a number of issues down the road, including peeling paint, cracked trim, and water damage. It will make painting a much simpler task.

Retaining walls

One of the main problems with retaining walls is water seepage. When water gets on the dirt side of the wall, it seeps through the cinder block and begins to erode and degrade the stucco on the outside surface. This can cause cracks in the wall. We must address this problem before we can begin to paint the retaining wall.

Painting cinder block walls

When choosing a paint for your cinder block project, it is important to select a high-quality option. Acrylic paints are a good choice, as they are durable and fade-resistant. Low-quality paints may peel and look chalky after just a few months, so it is important to select a paint that will last. In addition to choosing a high-quality paint, you also need to take care in preparing the surface of the cinder block.

Exterior lighting

One of the biggest concerns for homeowners about to paint their home has to do with their light fixtures. More specifically, should all of the lighting fixtures be removed before any painting is done? If your home has coach lights you’ll want to protect them from paint overspray and other accidents that could damage their aesthetic or functionality.
