By Arizona law, exterior painting contractors and companies are only required to offer a 2-year warranty to customers. Many of them do just that, and—thanks to their haste to get the job done—skip the quality assurance steps that make exterior paint last. The result is that customers are stuck having to pay for another exterior painting job only 5 years after the original one.
At Crash of Rhinos, we do things differently. By offering a 7-year warranty, we more than double the legal requirement and give you fantastic value and peace of mind for your money. In this post, we’ll explain why we’re able to offer such an extensive warranty and why Arizona homes need this kind of protection.
How is Crash able to offer a 7-year warranty?
When you use the best quality paints and do proper preparation, an exterior paint job should last for years to come—even under the strain of Arizona’s brutal sun. Crash of Rhinos Painting uses specially formulated Dunn-Edwards paints that are designed to be UV and water-resistant. This means that the paint retains its color and wall-surface binding for longer, and is less likely to collect dirt, grow mildew, or have chalking issues.
However, even the best paint is worthless without proper preparation on the part of the painters. Besides protecting your property, a good painting company like Crash of Rhinos should take the following steps to ensure that the surface is ready for painting:
- Pressure washing, to ensure that any existing paint, direct, pollutants, and chalking is removed.
- Stucco and drywall repair, so that the painting surface is consistent and there aren’t damaged spots.
- Scraping and application of DRYLOK, so that the stem walls are water resistant and won’t take in extra moisture.
- Primer, so that the paint has something to adhere to. This is one of the most important steps in the exterior painting process.
Why do I need a longer warranty?
Arizona is one of the sunniest states in the nation, with a vast majority of days bringing high UV exposure. This constant sunshine can, over time, put pressure on the exterior paint of homes, eventually leading to discoloration, fading, and chalking. That’s not to mention other factors, including the torrential rain and dust storms that arrive in Phoenix’s late summer monsoon season. All things considered, the exteriors of Arizona homes take a beating over the course of a year.
A 7-year warranty helps protect your painting investment for longer. Thanks to our extensive preparation process, your exterior paint may last longer than that, but we want to make sure you’re at least covered through those years.
