We hired Greg Unseth to do a complete exterior remodel on our home - stucco, stone, new gutters and fascias, new garage doors as well as adding a stone/timber pergola to our front entrance. To make the job more challenging and to add an extra 'fun' factor, this project started immediately after we had re-done all our landscaping so the crews were dealing with new sod, a new stamped concrete patio and new softscape. We were very happy with the result and love our "new home". To say that our reno project created a buzz in the neighborhood was an understatement.Chris, our project manager, made on-site visits consistently throughout the project and dealt with issues immediately. When dust from the stuccoing had gotten under the plywood/plastic that had been laid to protect the patio, Chris sent crews out immediately to power wash and reseal the patio. To complete our reno project, Greg Unseth did a stone/timber mailbox to match the pergola. It was the icing on the cake! The stone mason who did the stone work was a true craftsman who went the extra mile to create a cap on the stone post that not only looked good but is functional as well. It would have been easy for him to chop off a side of the cap to fit but, instead, he cut the cap piece into 4 triangles so that each side had a finished edge and raised the middle slightly for drainage. It was obvious that he knew his craft and took pride in his work.read more

We want to commend Jose on a very well done job! Jose was professional in his work as well as in his demeanor and work ethic. We could not have been more pleased with him. He spent several days in our home doing the interior walls and exterior doors. He had to work around all the trim, cabinetry, and doors. That job takes patience to get it right and HE did it right. He was able to “cut in” with precision and mastery. No gaps or sloppy work. That is the reason we hired Greg Unseth to do this job. Our expectations were high, and we wanted a precise and professionally completed job - that is what we got from Jose! He did not rush the job but worked efficiently. Thank You, Jose!read more

Greg Unseth Painting and Exteriors bid my exterior stucco repair job, providing us with several options for the repair needed. This allowed us to select the option that best fit our needs and finances. Sterling provided excellent project management on our job, as we had 3 different crews that performed the work. All of the crews were professional and detailed in their work, leaving us with the best possible repair and paint job on the exterior of our house. I would highly recommend this team for your next project.read more

From the first, this company has been a pleasure to work with! Ryan's estimate was fair, and he broke down the work (exterior painting, stucco repair, soffit and fascia repair) into financially manageable amounts for me. Scheduling was a breeze, and Sterling was patient and thorough, from helping me choose the paint color, to answering my many questions, to squeezing in the work between snow storms. I still have more work to go, and am looking forward to the final result.I've gotten nothing but compliments on the job!The only improvement I would recocmmend is to make sure that there is clear communication among the company, the crew, and the client. The crew did great job, but I didn't always know what to expect on a particular day. Otherwise, though, it was a great experience and I highly recommend them!read more

Why should I choose Greg Unseth Painting & Exteriors for my home improvement project?

There are many reasons why we stand out from the competition. We are a family owned and operated, local business whom has served the residents of Colorado since 1981. Our over 16,000 customers will tell you that not only do we provide a top quality product at a fair price, but that our company mission to treat every customers home like it is our own is not just an empty promise.

Greg has always believed that a happy employee will create happy customers. This creed has been a cornerstone to our success. Not only do we treat our staff with the best financial rewards, but we constantly strive to create a family atmosphere with all of our employees. This creates a scenario that allows us to recruit the best in the business, and keep them long term! Every employee, from our labor force to top management, are competant and caring, and this allows us to back all of our products and services with the best warranties in the business.

What are your warranties and are they transferable?

We offer three warranties for exterior painting depending on which paint or stain you choose. Our paint warranties include: 1) Sherwin Williams Resilience with a Lifetime Paint & 7 Year Labor Warranty; 2) Our premium package with Sherwin Williams best paint, Emerald, carries a Lifetime Paint & 12 Year Labor Warranty; 3) If you own a natural wood home, our solid acrylic stains include a 3 Year Labor & Material Warranty. The labor portions of all paint and stain warranties are transferable if you sell your home.

Every window and patio door we install includes a factory backed, Limited Lifetime Warranty, which includes glass breakage. If anything happens to one of your windows while you own the home, it will be either repaired or replaced (excluding screen material).

Our stucco services are backed with a Limited Lifetime Labor and Material Warranty, covering chipping, staining, uneven fading, and cracking wider than 1/8″.

You can find additional info on our warranties on our service pages in this website, and your Greg Unseth Painting & Exteriors sales representative will provide you with a copy of our warranties at the time of your free estimate.

Do you offer warranties for interior painting?

We do not write warranties on interior painting, as some homeowners are just too hard on their walls and trim. However, we do guarantee coverage with the best products available at the time of the project which will give the typical homeowner years of enjoyment before needing a new coating.

What do you consider prep work?

Preparation is the most important part of the painting process. We will power wash if needed, scrape all peeling paint, prime coat all exposed wood and siding surfaces, and fill all holes, joints, and seams on the siding, trim, doors, and windows with a top quality caulking. We mask and cover all windows, fixtures, flatwork, and landscaping prior to applying the topcoat to insure a clean finished product, and remove all paint chips and trash upon completion of the job.

Are you insured?

Yes, we carry full Liability and Workman’s Compensation insurance. If an accident occurs on your project, either to our workers or your home, we are covered.

Can you paint my home in the winter?

Absolutely. Our paints are cold temp rated to 35 degrees, allowing us to paint on many winter days. And as an incentive, we usually will run deeper discounts during the winter months!

Do you offer services in Denver and Douglas County?

We do offer services in Denver and Douglas County. Our Northern Colorado operations are offered via our sister company, Denver Stucco & Stone. You can find more information at: www.denverstuccoandstone.com.

How do you apply the paint topcoat?

Finish strategy will be determined on a per job basis. Most homes will be a cross-spray application for larger body areas and brush/roll application for trim, interior, and smaller areas. No matter what application is chosen, we assure a thick, even topcoat with the best products available.

How is your stucco process different from others in the industry?

When we decided to start offering stucco over siding, we knew that we would only offer the very best solution available. The best system is a hard-coat stucco system. However, even with the hard-coat solutions, there are steps and levels of product upgrades that can take a standard stucco job and make it a stellar one!

There are a few areas of differentiation between what we include as standard in our system, that would be considered upgrades with other competitors. They are:

Lath Stage: 1) In the lath stage, we use Double 60 weather-barrier, which is 3 times thicker than code requires; 2) We use a 17 gauge wire system that is heavier than most offer (stucco is heavy and it is the wire that holds it to the home); 3) We always secure the wire to the studs of the home with longer-than-standard, 2″ staples; 4) Pop-outs, or bump-outs, are always added around door and window openings as standard.

Base Coat: 1) We use only the best base coat material, which is infused with fiberglass strands to create a stronger surface and reduce cracking; 2) Between the scratch and brown coats, we add a fiberglass mesh overlay for additional crack protection (this is a very important step and one that should be included in every stucco job, as this will prevent future cracking by another 80%).

Color Coat: 1) We always use the very best finish coat, which is Elastomeric stucco. As opposed to the standard Portland Cement color coat, the elastomeric coatings will bridge hairline cracks at a much greater rate, are colorfast and fade resistant, will not stain nearly as easily, and most importantly are flexible (elongation of 180%) to prevent as much surface cracking as possible when movement of the structure occurs.

Painting the Trim & Doors: Most stucco contractors do not, and will not, paint the areas that are not being stuccoed. We always include this in our system. After all, why would our customers want a beautiful new stucco home with less than beautiful trim? Plus, no need to go out and find another contractor to finish the job!

Tell me about your workforce.

This is a source of great pride for our company. We have always realized that our company is only as good as our people. Experience and professionalism is a must when we hire, however we always look for deeper qualities such as pride of work and individuals whom buy into our concept of being the best home improvement company we can be.

What are the benefits of 100% Acrylic paints?

We use only 100% acrylic paints for several reasons. Acrylic latex is flexible so it will move and breathe with the constant contraction and expansion of your homes surfaces due to temperature changes. Also, acrylics are the most fade resistant coverings available, which is very important with Colorado’s intense UV exposure.

What are your payment terms?

No money down on painting, gutters, tile, and repair projects. Terms of 50% down/ 50% upon completion on replacement windows and doors, fencing, decks, and garage doors. For stucco, 1/3 down, 1/3 after lath inspection, and 1/3 upon completion. We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. We also offer bank financing via Ent Federal Credit Union with approved credit.

What is your service area?

We serve Colorado Springs, Fountain, Security/Widefield, Pueblo, and Teller County.

Why should I choose Greg Unseth Painting & Exteriors when shopping for replacement windows and doors?

As an Alside top retailer in the Southern Colorado market, we have chosen to offer this exclusive, top quality replacement window. Alside windows are available in hung, slider, awning, casement and many other formats.
