Here’s what makes our paint warranty policy different

At Crash of Rhinos Painting, we offer a seven-year paint warranty. It’s one of the things that makes us different.

In this blog, we’ll dive into just what makes our warranty special, and why an effective exterior painting warranty really matters to you as a homeowner—and says about the company.

The state of Arizona mandates that exterior painting companies have to provide at least a two-year warranty on their work.

That may not seem like much warranty, but many other companies tend to stay at 2-3 years, not expecting the layman to know just how long paint should last.

What does a paint warranty policy actually say?

The fewer years that are in the warranty, the less confident the painting company is in its prep work, its paint, or its quality assurance process. This makes sense: if a contractor knows that their paint actually only lasts five years, they’re not going to want to guarantee it for six. They’d be out of business!

Many exterior painters stick close to the two-year minimum for two reasons: first, because they aren’t obligated to offer more and, second, because they’re not confident in their products or services, or how their paint will stand up to a beating from Arizona’s sun and monsoon weather.

What our paint warranty says about us

In contrast, Crash of Rhinos offers a seven-year warranty on our exterior painting work. That’s five years above-and-beyond the minimum requirement.

Why? It’s because we know that our superior paint (Dunn-Edwards), thorough prep work, and careful quality assurance all add up to a home painting that is going to last for seven years or longer.

Oh, and here’s another thing:

Even if an exterior painting company offers a warranty—even a longer one—be sure to ask them just how much that warranty will cost. Many companies attract customers with generous warranties that they then upcharge people for when their service is complete.

Again, to contrast, our seven-year warranty comes with our service. No extra fees. No extra upcharge. In fact, it’s something that we lay out upfront in our proposal packet. It’s something that we feel customers deserve.

Here’s what to do when you get an HOA notice

You go to check the mailbox, and there’s an HOA notice. In no uncertain terms, they tell you that it’s time: your home’s paint has faded, and it’s time to get it repainted.

For homeowners in HOA-regulated neighborhoods, this letter is what often provides the motivation to start their home exterior painting process.

Yet, there’s no need to panic: here in Phoenix, Crash of Rhinos offers exterior home painting for stucco homes, and we’re used to working with HOAs to get results that are great for both the homeowner and the association.

When you get an HOA notice in the mail, call Crash of Rhinos Painting.

Call Crash of Rhinos Painting

Typically, the letter will give you some kind of reasonable deadline to get your house painted. It’s not the same as a letter about pulling your weeds: associations understand that making home painting arrangements takes a little time.

Start by giving Crash of Rhinos a call, or by contacting us online. Tell us about the letter, and what it says.

Some HOAs help you save a few steps by including the acceptable exterior colors right there in the letter. But, if not, there’s a process we can go through to help you figure out what approved colors you can paint your house. It’s called our Professional Paint Advisor service, and, through it, we’ll work with your HOA on your behalf. More on that in a minute.

Next, we’ll come to your house when it’s convenient for you and give you a free quote. We’ll need to see the stucco, take measurements, and more. This quote is upfront and honest.

The quote gets bundled into a proposal packet that includes all the details about the project. If you’ve decided to use the Professional Paint Advisor, this will include the colors approved by your HOA and what you’ve selected. If not, we’ll provide you with instructions for getting an approved color.

We’ll also take video of your current home exterior during our quote. Basically, this gets turned into “game tape” for our painting team, who watch it before starting the work to see specific areas that need special attention.

The painting process begins

This is the easiest part of you. Our team handles the entire painting process from start-to-finish. After we’re done, we’ll talk to you and provide you with information about our really great warranty.

Now, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that your paint is guaranteed for the next seven years. Your HOA, seeing your freshly painted home, will be satisfied that you’re in compliance. On top of all that, your home’s value should increase because of the improved curb appeal.
