About Fisher & Rocha, Inc.
Fisher & Rocha, Inc. was founded in 1965 by Bruce E. Rocha, Sr. and Henry G. Fisher. Rocha was a skilled carpenter with a fledgling real estate practice, while Fisher was a financier with a motel enterprise. They decided to join forces to develop and build quality homes.
They purchased land, developed property, built homes and created relationships within the community together. Fisher retired from the business in 1975, while Rocha and his wife Bette-Jean, an advertising major, continued working and expanded the operation throughout the Southeastern Massachusetts region, focusing on construction, real estate and property management.
We provide all manner of construction, real estate and property management services in the Southeastern Massachusetts area. Call us for a free quote at 508 758 -6738.
Spruce Up the Exterior of Your Home With a Fresh Coat of Paint
Homes in New England endured a long cold winter with harsh weather conditions. With the arrival of spring, this is the perfect time to spruce up the exterior of your home with a fresh coat of paint. A new coat of paint will give your home a refreshed look and can add to the resale value of your house. The wind, sleet, and the snow take its toll on the exterior of every home.
Costly wear and tear can be prevented when a surface is properly prepared and painted. Paint application should be avoided during very wet and high humidity conditions. Even though many paints fabricated today are fast drying, they all need time to completely dry before forecasted rain or very humid days. Uncured paint will often blister and peel off the surface. Careful preparation is the key to professional results. Often, proper preparation costs more than the actual painting. It is more cost effective when the job is done right the first time.
Whether your painting project is interior or exterior, there is one important question to keep in mind. Should oil based paint or latex paint be used on your project? There are benefits with both types of paints. Latex paints are faster drying than oil based paints. Oil based paints tend to take longer to dry but do go on more thickly and covers more thoroughly with one coat. Latex paint is thinner and smoother to apply than its counterpart which is thicker and harder to use. When applying an oil based product, it is highly recommended to prime the surface to prevent peeling later on. Priming is not required before painting with a latex paint. Because of the toxicity of oil based paints, water based paints are a common choice for interior projects unless being used in high humidity rooms such as bathrooms or even kitchens. In this case, an oil based paint is preferred for its durability and stain resistant qualities.
