Yes! We can match to a current paint color by either getting the color make and number off of the original can of paint or by taking into our paint supplier some of the original paint or a piece of material that has the original paint on it. It’s important to note that most color matches will not be exact, especially for older paints that have been exposed to sun or weathering, but our paint suppliers can achieve a remarkably close color match if we have any of the items mentioned above.
In the pacific northwest climate, generally 7 to 10 years is a good is a good repaint cycle to keep your home protected and in optimal condition. There are many factors that go into how long an exterior repaint will last, such as the condition of the siding, the tree coverage and weather exposure and the quality of prep done and paint material used in layers of paint underneath.
The southern and western exposure sides tend to wear faster and are more prone to paint peeling and color fading, as those sides get the most intense heat and sun, as well as a lot of the hard winds and rains. The standard paints we use are some of the highest quality in the industry, and while you will often see things like “lifetime warranty” on their products, it’s unrealistic to expect.
Our Process: We have a detailed, professional painting process that each of our painters is trained in to make sure our team delivers on what you have trusted us to help with.
Our People: Every team member is known—relationally, and officially, we know our people. Each team member has background checked and carries with them a photo ID badge so you know who they are and that they’re with Doxa. But what I think is really special is the way we strive to know and care for one another as whole people, and build a supportive community within our company that helps each of us and our families grow and flourish.

Our Principles: Our process is not perfect, nor are our people, but we are committed to a principle of being better tomorrow than we are today, and to never stop growing and helping our customers have someone they can trust to do the right thing and help take care of their painting and property maintenance needs. We still mess up (and yes, we’ve even received that dreaded 1-star review). But when that happens, you can count on us to own it and do everything we can to make it right.
For exterior painting, our team will need at least 1 to 2 feet of clearance between any trees or shrubs and the surfaces they will be painting. The day of pressure washing to clean the outside of the home, we will need all windows closed and any valuables that hang on or sit near the house to be taken down or moved away.
For interior painting, we will go over a plan with you for which rooms will need to be ready at which points in the painting process. In most cases all items hanging on the walls will need to be removed, furniture moved to the center of the room, and any cats or dogs will need to be kept out of rooms being painted while the work is being completed (…ask Coby to tell you about a lovely little cat that hopped into a pan of paint sometime ;). If you need help with any of these things, just let your Doxa Sales and Project Manager know!
