My wife and I recently reconstructed our family residence in the Truckee area and after its completion we wanted to select a painting contractor that was extremely knowledgeable in the different stains and finishes used on natural wood exterior finishes, especially given the severe climate in the Tahoe area. We wanted a contractor that not only had extensive knowledge of the various products available but also a proven track record in the area with recommendations from previous clients. We interviewed several painting contractors from the Lake Tahoe and Sacramento area. Shawn knew exactly what we needed to do in order to maintain the natural warm finishes of the logs, rustic shakes along with rough sawn board and batten siding. He was open to our ideas and suggestions and took great care of the areas not scheduled to be painted or receive stain. We have been extremely pleased with the end result and feel that selecting him to do the work was the right choice. We would not hesitate to recommend Shawn Pettigrove Enterprises for your project.
