Environmentally Responsible House Painting and Staining

Sunday, July 26th, 2009


Customers of Kevin Palmer Painting hire our house painting professionals because we share their environmental health and safety concerns and have the experience, knowledge, skills, and motivation to complete their house painting project in an environmentally conscious and professional manner.  Kevin Palmer Painting strives to decrease our impact on the environment by minimizing waste and maximizing quality and durability.  Minimizing excess, preservation of resources, and knowledge and application of environmentally friendly painting procedures are important to Kevin Palmer Painting.


Our commitment to working Green starts with using GPS to establish the most efficient route to our free painting estimate as well as directing our painters to the work sites. Whenever possible we carpool to reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. We continually monitor the weather when scheduling work to ensure our painting and staining projects are completed under appropriate conditions. This practice ensures the longevity of our exterior house painting and staining projects. By eliminating call-backs and repaints we minimize waste and preserve resources. We use the best products available to ensure the quality and durability of our paint jobs. We take careful measurements and order the correct quantity of paint to reduce unnecessary overage.  Biodegradable cleansers are used when power washing homes and decks.  We use paints and stains that are lead-free and have fewer toxins than their predecessors. We minimize the use of plastic by recycling, and we use linen drop cloths where possible.


All of the interior and exterior house painting materials used by Kevin Palmer Painting meet or exceed EPA guidelines and standards. Experience and knowledge enables Kevin Palmer Painting to determine the best and most appropriate product for a specific application. Where applicable we use enhanced waterborne formula house paints and stains that produce minimal odors and are low- or no-VOC in content. We keep paint containers covered or closed when not in use to minimize emissions and prevent excessive odor. We cap and seal touch-up paint for our painting customer’s down the road repairs. Working Green preserves resources, reduces waste, and improves the quality of life. The residential and commercial painting customers of Kevin Palmer Painting hire our house painting professionals because we are responsible stewards of the environment.
