We adjust the paint based on the weather at the time of application
According to some experts, “the perfect time to paint is when the weather has been dry for at least two days and daytime temperatures are between 10C and 25C. Humidity should be low or moderate, and there should be no fog, drizzle, dew or gusty winds.”
Is your head hurting or is it just us? With the help of our proprietary software, The Spray-Network, we customize each coating to real-time weather conditions at the time of application to ensure optimal film formation, end properties and lasting results.
We spray it on smooth
Each coating is strategically optimized for exterior spray application and results in a streak-free, sag free, high-build finish. Atomized at an optimal viscosity and custom thickness, we can achieve an even, smooth and fully levelled finish in just one cost-effective coat.Learn more

The steps to Spray-Net your home
Since we formulate the coatings for your revamp ourselves, there’s an extra step in our process. But, we promise it’s worth the wait!
Is there a test phase when the customer chooses a color? Can they test it on their home and surface to make sure they’re happy with the results?
We offer our free visualizer where our clients can upload a photo of their home and virtually test our paint colors on their home’s exterior (adjusted to each surface) or their kitchen cabinets. Unfortunately, we can’t patch test on a client’s home, as it would create a double thickness of paint on the given area, and we pride ourselves in offering a streak-free, smooth factory finish.
What is the delay between the signing of a contract and the actual painting?
We begin with an at-home consultation and start pre-booking a backlog of projects, so depending on your location, the delays may vary. We formulate and manufacture each color in batches, creating a made-to-order coating for each homeowner and each painting project. So, you can normally expect a minimum delay of 3-4 weeks before we’re ready to paint your home. If we can do it in a shorter delay, then we most definitely will! Getting a completely customized paint job for your home can take some time, but we promise, it’s worth the wait!
How long does it take to complete a project?
For painting exterior siding, we do a thorough power-wash before the actual day of the paint application. This will take at least 3 hours depending on the size of the home. Surface preparation for doors and windows occurs on the same day. Regardless of the size of the project, the actual paint application is typically done in one day. Having said that, we definitely won’t skimp out on quality just to get a home done in a day. If needed for a flawless finish, we’ll take the extra time. If your renewal involves several different colors, we’ll need a little extra time to completely finish the project.
How many coats of paint do you apply?
Unlike the traditional brush and roller method, spray-applied painting is measured according to paint thickness rather than the number of coats. Depending on the specific exterior coating that we’re using, paint thickness can vary between 4 and 20 mils. A thicker paint film doesn’t automatically mean it will be more durable; it all depends on what we’re trying to achieve for a final product’s properties.
You can be sure that our expert painting crews are equipped with the knowledge, products, and experience to produce a permanent factory finish… every time.
What’s the finish of your exterior paint?
For aluminum and vinyl exterior siding, we strike the perfect balance between a matte and glossy finish to minimize the appearance of surface imperfections and to create a like-new washable finish. These types of custom finishes are not available with conventional paints limited to matte, satin, or semi-gloss. For doors and windows, we follow the same gloss standards as the door and window industry so that they look like they’ve just arrived from the factory!
What kind of products do you use?
We are an eco-friendly painting company that uses our own exclusive line of low VOC, water-based, and industrial-strength exterior paints and coatings. All of our products fall under all government VOC limits. Each of our exterior and kitchen paints and coatings are uniquely tailored for each surface and for a specific method of application, and they all contain a unique blend of additives and superior inorganic pigments that allow us to achieve the desired results per surface that we’re revamping!
Since factory paint is “baked,” is your paint as scratch resistant?
When painting doors and windows for manufacturers, IR lamps are used to artificially accelerate the curing process. This specific technique is necessary since the demands of the commercial market require quick packaging and delivery of products. To bring the same one-day permanent factory results to the residential sector, we’ve formulated our exclusive paints and coatings so that they become dry to the touch within 15-30 minutes of application, depending on the weather. In a short time, the paint film achieves a factory OEM level of hardness. With the help of the sun’s natural UV rays, the paint fully cures and achieves maximum hardness and durability in the days that follow. The sun’s natural UV rays are just as effective as a forced factory cure. When needed in unideal weather conditions, however, we can produce a forced bake for front doors in our mobile spray booth, since this high-traffic surface requires a quicker full cure. Our industrial grade formulations coupled with an optimal application process is what allows our coatings to be as scratch and mar resistant as factory coatings.
What’s the difference between spray-applied paint and electrostatic paint?
Most people confuse the difference between spray-applied paint and electrostatic paint. Electrostatic paint is typically oil-based and is commonly used in the industrial sector to paint difficult to paint shapes, like cylinders. These objects need to be made of a high conducting metal such as steel. Using an electrical charge, paint is propelled toward the surface to create a perfect even finish. This isn’t necessary (or possible) in the residential sector because we use non-toxic water-based products and the surfaces that we revamp have very little to no conductivity so it wouldn’t work anyway. The water content of our products, as well as the painting of mostly non-metal surfaces, wouldn’t allow for a sufficient electrical charge. The big appeal of electrostatic painting is the low-overspray property of the technique, but all of our paints and coatings are specifically designed for spray application. Combined with our spray equipment, this technique results in a high transfer efficiency and minimal amount of overspray. When it comes to painting the exterior of a home, we’ve formulated the ideal products and have mastered the optimal techniques to deliver a like-new and durable factory finish.
What’s the advantage of your mobile spray booth?
The biggest challenge when it comes to exterior painting is undoubtedly the weather: rain, wind, humidity, and extreme temperature fluctuation. In unideal weather conditions, our mobile spray booth creates the perfect controlled environment for us to paint your front door for a flawless factory finish. Using artificial UV rays, our mobile spray booth allows us to achieve the required full property cure for same day re-installation. It also allows us to spray your kitchen cabinets in a controlled environment directly on-site resulting in a much quicker turnaround so you can get back to enjoying your kitchen quickly!
