A Southwest-based company for more than a century, Frazee Paint and its team of manufacturers are well acquainted with the unique climactic conditions of the region. Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys. Their quality paints, wall-coverings, wood-care products, and painter's tools stock the shelves of more than 125 retail locations throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, as well as international dealers in Mexico, China, and Guam.
Punctual wall stylists at Ellzey's Painting execute touchups and full-scale makeovers on drab façades using pigments from Kelly Moore. Professional painting sessions begin with a thorough visual inspection of the chosen area before paint paladins assist in moving furniture or hibernating uncles to free up working space. Brushers then coat domestic canvases in two layers of the same color, suffusing bedrooms with amber tones, bathrooms with cool blues, or dollhouses to match their host rooms. After walls get a complete coloring, acrylic specialists make sure to meticulously clean and clear their work zones.
