Latest Technological breakthrough in the world of paint

Paint Shield® kills greater than 99.9% of Staph (Staphylococcus aureus), MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), E. coli (Escherichia coli), VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis), and Enterobacter aerogenes within two hours of exposure.

Paint Shield® doesn’t just inhibit the growth of common microbes; it actually has the power to kill pathogenic bacteria, including Staph (Staphylococcus aureus), MRSA, and E. coli, thereby giving healthcare systems and other facilities an important new tool to help prevent the spread of these bacteria on painted surfaces. EPA-test protocol showed that once it is applied, the effectiveness of Paint Shield® lasts for up to four years, as long as the integrity of the surface is maintained. Sherwin Williams has been a leader in the painting industry for over 150 years. Here at Backes R&S, we only give the best to our customers, that is why we support the Sherwin Williams brand.

If you are interested in having this paint on your walls, give us a call and we would more than happy to do it!

Selling your House? top 3 renovations for resale

  • Kitchens: The most frequently used and commented upon room in your house is the kitchen, and that makes it your number-one renovation priority. Since an up-to-date kitchen helps entice home-buyers, money you spend in this space can usually be expected to find its way back into your wallet.
  • Painting: Even small, low-cost improvement projects can change the face of your home more dramatically than you might expect. For example, a fresh coat of paint will transform the character of a room. Likewise, adding new plants to the front yard greatly enhances curb appeal, and it's important that your home make the best possible first impression.
  • Bathrooms: Keep your eye on what's working for others. Market trends may provide clues as to whether buyers will respond to a remodeling effort you're pondering. Data suggests, for example, that home-buyers are hot on modern bathrooms but lukewarm on home theaters. Also trending are open floor plans and water-conserving landscaping.

Your House Is Our House

We treat everyone's home with the same courtesy and respect that we would have for our own home. Just ask about Chris Backes around town; our track record speaks for itself. More than likely, you will know someone that Backes R&S has done work for! Everything we do is with your best interest in mind. You can count on us to get the job DONE RIGHT!
