Distinctive Painting can paint almost any interior/exterior surface.
We believe the foundation of any top quality paint job can be found in the
prep work involved, the use of top quality materials, and in the details
performed to give your project that "professional" look.

What is a Faux Finish?
A faux finish describes a special technique in painting to give you a unique and custom finish on your walls. Many prefer this to wallpaper so you don't see any seams or repetitive patterns. Also when it comes time for another change it is easily painted over instead of messy paper removal.
Some common techniques are:
Or your own creative Idea!
Distinctive Painting has many sample boards for you to view and can make one for your specific project!
Drywall and Plaster-
Drywall: Distinctive Painting can hang, tape, and / or repair drywall
repair loose tape / seams, nail pops, holes, water damage and mold.
we use the industry-wide 5 standard levels of gypsum board finish to achieve the desired results according to your project.
A full line of texturing techniques is available, such as: orange peel, popcorn, knock down, etc.
Plaster: We can correctly repair any stress cracks common in many older homes.
Venetian plaster: a new texture option to give an "old world" sort of feel.
Pressure washing is an important first step in any exterior painting project. Not only does it clean, but it brightens wood, removes damaging mold and mildew, and gets surfaces ready for paint or stain.
Decks, siding, and fences are not the only things that need washing:
Brick and stone
Cement or black top driveways
Vinyl, aluminum or fiber cement siding
We use a combination of high pressure water, manual scrubbing, rotary nozzles, and high pressure injected detergents.
Distinctive Painting can help you restore or create a new look by installing or replacing:
Crown moulds, chair rails, wainscoting
Doors and Windows
Decks and Porches
We can even construct small buildings and repair roofs.
Distinctive has installed many tile backsplashes, borders, floors, and showers with slate, glass, and ceramic tile materials.
If you do not see your project here, call us! If we cannot do it, we have many resources and would be happy to give you some recommendations.

Concrete is unique and personalized. You can add custom inlays and /or choose from a variety of acid stains or Integral colors.
