About Me


Scott Martin Hello , I worked for Dowlen Construction painting for over 25 years and as a trim carpenter for around 5 years. I studied mechanical engineering and business at Chattanooga State. I enjoy photography, hiking and camping with my wife and wood working. I am married and we live in the city of Red Bank even though our mailing address is Hixson. I have attended Oakwood Baptist Church in Chattanooga since 2004 with my wife. We were married there in 2006.

Paint coverage

October 25, 2009
Most people want paint to cover in one coat. Very few paints will cover in one coat over any color. Some will cover over a lighter color.
If the can says one coat coverage it may just do it for a pro but maybe not a do it for a non pro. Even I have a hard time getting some paint to cover in one coat.
One paint we are using now is doing a very good job of covering in one coat. Sherwin Williams Super Paint.
We have had some luck with Valspar getting it to cover in one coat.
A lot depends on what yo...

Prep

October 5, 2009
The single most important thing for A nice lasting paint job is the prep work. It's a boring, time consuming job that can consist of sanding, dusting, cleaning, patching holes, caulking, cleaning dust and more. If done right you will have a excellent looking paint job. But if not done right you can have a real mess that can be very costly later on. We at Martin Brothers Painting do our best give you a vice paint job. We do all the necessary prep work then and only them will we paint. A paint ...

Another Townhouse is finished

September 27, 2009
We just finished another townhouse repaint. We would love to paint your townhouse, house, apartment or office. We are licensed and have been painting for many years. We have just recently started using Valspar paint and highly recommend it for interior walls. We have used it on the last three jobs and really like it and it is cheaper than Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams.

The Story of The Carpenter

July 28, 2009
An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family. He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire. They could get by. The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted ...

Vinyl Flooring

June 9, 2009
Hi All,

I found out one thing last Friday! I can not patch vinyl flooring that has been cut out. I tried to put a patch in for some very nice people and could not get it to look good enough for me. I am a perfectionist about a lot of things and this was one of them. I hate being defeated! Well I can not do everything! No one can. I will not try that again.

When do I need to change my smoke alarm batteries?

June 9, 2009
 
 
That is a good question. Well here is one answer. To be on the safe side two times a year. That is the recommendation of all fire departments. I do it ones a year some time and it is OK but I should do it twice a year. Please do not wait until they start beeping it will drive you crazy before you get them changed because they will most always start beeping at night. It must be some kind of law or something! If you are not able to change you batteries give us a call. We can do it...
