Shutters, do we save them, do we paint them, or do we replace them?

You can blog about the preparation that goes on for shutters and maybe put a price per shutter so they know what they are getting into if they call you.

Front porches, we have a deck there on the front porch.

Should we paint the decking?

Should we stain the decking?

Maybe a step by step process of how we do all these things just in case the homeowner wants to do it themselves.

You will be the expert because you are guiding them along to do it properly.

Glazing, window glazing, how do you properly glaze a window?

We can have a look over here, we have wicker furniture out here on the front lawn.

Another perfect thing to blog…

Are you going to compare apples to apples or are you going to use the leading brands of paint?

The contractor grade, maybe up to their premium grade.

Why use certain paints in certain areas?

Masonry painting, you are going to paint the foundation, what kind of paint?

Why don’t you use regular latex paint, without masonry primer first?

All of these are blogs that you can use.

Tell them step by step how to get rid of old paint.

Easy, easy ways to become a professional in your field.

You want to be the expert that everybody goes to when they are coming across a painting situation.
