Gene LeDoux (pronounced “LaDew”). I started in the painting profession in 1982, on the ground floor of a company that became a 4 million dollar a year business. I was a close friend of the 2 owner’s and made good money running the employees the way they wanted.
As the company continued to grow, their main concern was more, more, more. The employees were treated well; Gold rings, trips to Hawaii every January and nice bonus’s.
The problem was the Quality of the work being done for the customers. The owner’s were not concerned about a lasting job, just bring in the check.
That’s the reason I left the company in 1987 and decided to open a small Quality Painting Company with my Name behind it, Gene’s Painting is committed to giving lasting paint jobs with a Guarantee on every single paint job. I have had an A+ rating with the BBB for the last 11 years and I sleep very well because of it.

EXTERIOR PAINTING PROCEDURES
We begin our preparation on each job by:
Looking for Mildew around the property and spraying with a bleach solution that kills the mildew then we add a mildewcide paint additive to the paint which helps to control mold and mildew.
Next we Power Wash all surfaces to be painted so as to remove any dirt, grime, spider webs, loose materials, etc.
Gene’s Painting does minor Dry Rot repairs by removing and replacing wood as needed, on smaller areas we use a two part epoxy filler or two part Bondo filler to restore the wood. All loose nails, screws or wood is tightened.
All loose and Peeling Paint is then scraped by hand to a sound surface and sanded as needed. (Feather sanding is done to the level customer decides at beginning of job, Finer feather sanding takes more time and costs more.)
We apply straight Boiled Linseed Oil to bare wood which penetrates deep into the wood.
The RIGHT PRIMER for the proper surface is one of the most important procedures a painter can do for a longer lasting paint job…… after at least 24 hours penetration of the boiled linseed oil we apply a very slow drying oil based primer to the bare wood (the longer the primer takes to dry on wood the more the penetration and therefore the longer it takes the sun to dry out the wood and pop the paint.)
Gutters, downspouts and all other metal requires a fast drying primer to bite onto the metal fast, no penetration required.
Stains must be sealed with a “Stain Killing Primer” or the stain will bleed through all layers of paint.
Rusted areas need a red oxide rust inhibited primer.
Patching is then done on stucco and wood. For smaller cracks on stucco and wood we use an elastomeric caulking and larger cracks on stucco we use a stucco patch mixed with glue for maximum adhesion, larger cracks on wood are repaired using two part bondo filler. All patches are then primed
We remove and replace all loose Glazing in windows
