Other Residential Services We Provide
Cabinet Refinishing and Repainting
Your cabinets are perhaps one of the most touched surfaces in your home, so it’s no surprise that they wind up with a little wear and tear. At CertaPro we’ll work with you to find a finish or paint that meets the needs of your home and daily routine.
Not sure which shade to choose? Struggling to differentiate matte, satin and gloss? We’ll help you navigate the sea of options to find a color that matches your home’s interior aesthetic and stands up to your family’s daily routine.
Whether your home has water damage that requires drywall repair or your walls have medium-to-large holes that need patching, the CertaPro crew will patch, sand and prime, to create a flawless surface to paint on.
EPA Lead Certified
At CertaPro Painters® of Palatine, IL we are EPA Lead Certified. This means that if we are performing a renovation, repair or painting project that disturbs lead-based paint in your home, we use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.
Popcorn Ceiling Removal
While popcorn ceilings had their time on top trends lists, they are rarely seen in modern homes. Removing a popcorn ceiling yourself can be extremely difficult. The crew at CertaPro is trained to remove popcorn ceilings in an effective way that will leave your ceilings feeling fresh.
Power washing is a vital step in painting the exterior of your home. CertaPro uses the process to remove mold, oil, and old paint so new paint absorbs into your surface better.
Stucco Repairs and Painting
As with any other home exterior, it’s important to maintain the stucco or EIFS (also known as synthetic stucco) covering your home. The CertaPro team is very knowledgeable in both repairs and painting related to these two materials and will work alongside you to determine what services your home needs.
Vinyl and Aluminum Siding Painting
Whether you have high-tech vinyl siding or a more traditional siding, CertaPro knows how to restore them. Our team has the right approach to add new life to your exteriors.
Removing wallpaper can be a tricky task. The crew at CertaPro is skilled in removing wallpaper and will make this task hassle-free for you. We can also prep and paint any walls that have been freed of wallpaper if you like as well.
