Painting Options

Bug Juice (recommended): is the only EPA-registered insecticidal paint additive on the market for both interior and exterior use including kitchens and pantries.  It’s ideal for controlling infestation from insects such as mosquitoes, cockroaches, ants, hornets, flies, silverfish, and weevils. It is used in residential applications as well as commercial buildings like hotels, restaurants, convention centers, and nursing homes.  

Bug Juice does not repel insects; it is a contact pesticide. It begins to work after an insect makes contact with the treated surface.  Bug Juice will not affect the color or drying time of the coating. It is recommended that you hose off the treated surface with water twice a year. This provides a clean surface for insects to land on. Bug Juice does not have an odor and will last up to 5-7 years.  Cost: $275 average to treat the entire home

Okon Paintbooster (recommended on stucco or concrete applications): Creates a water repellent barrier that reduces premature paint failure, wood rot, and mold growth by reducing water absorption. Ideal for exterior surfaces subject to moisture condensation—like stucco, window sills, outdoor furniture, garage doors, siding, fences, and more— OKON PAINTBOOSTER contains a proprietary “water beading agent” that protects against water absorption and makes water bead-like on a newly waxed car!  Help keep stucco from cracking in Georgia’s varying temperature and weather.

When added to any latex paint or stain, the water-based paint conditioner and water repellent additive improves flow and leveling and reduces brush, roller, and lap marks—making paint easier to apply! It increases the open time when painting in direct sunlight, making it great for jobs in hot temperatures. And, because of its high acrylic content, PAINTBOOSTER does not affect the color or reduce the coverage. Cost: $285 average for entire exterior.

Mildewcide: Stay-Clean I/E is a mildewcide paint additive designed to inhibit mold & mildew growth on interior and exterior surfaces.  Stay-Clean I/E can be applied on most interior and exterior surfaces, including bathrooms, kitchens, decks, and pantries. 

Stay Clean and do not kill mildew.  It is a mildewcide additive that inhibits the growth of mold and mildew on surfaces. One of the only things that kill mildew is bleach. Stay-Clean I/E helps keep the mildew away after it is eliminated.  

If you are worried about mold and mildew under floors, behind walls, in the ventilation, or in other unseen areas, you should contact a professional who specializes in mold and mildew remediation.  Stay-Clean I/E can be added to any oil or latex-based paint, stain, or sealant. It can even be mixed with wallpaper adhesive. Stay-Clean I/E does not have an odor or harmful fumes. It will last for 3-5 years depending on conditions.  Cost: typical single room treatment $145

Gutter Cleaning: The majority of gutters we see while painting is clogged and not functioning properly.  Gutters get full of dirt, leaves, roofing sand, and debris.  If left unchecked, the gutters can get heavy and begin to pull away from the roof and become damaged.  Take a look at your gutters now. Damaged gutters can cost hundreds to repair. Overflowing gutters will cause dry rot to fascia and soffits.  Dependable Painting and Remodeling will clean all gutters and downspouts during the power washing process and re-screw or reset loose gutter pins or hangers.  Cost: Avg $155.
