Three + years ago, we moved to Round Rock and there was a guy that painted our address on the curb complete with a block T on one side of the driveway and a Round Rock Express logo on the other side. In three years, the paint is fading. I would like to get it repainted. Any leads on curb painters???

Please post a follow-up, if you don't mind. I'd like to have our numbers painted on the driveway and by the time one buys the proper paint and stencils, it'd be just as easy to pay the 'pro' to do it.

Interesting that a 'gargle' search brings up the kits so you can go into the curb painting business--make millions in your spare time!
I'm told the Scouts(or similar organization) came through Avery Ranch with just such a project the year BEFORE we moved in. Haven't heard a peep since '08 when we got here. I actually wanted to paint the background in the shape of Texas with the font to match our house numbers. It's NEVER as easy as you think it will be!

I'm not in Austin, but one of those guys came through the neighborhood a year or two ago. I didn't take him up on the offer (already have numbers painted - albeit fading). However, I talked to a neighbor who got new numbers painted. She said she got a letter from the HOA complaining about the colors (white letters on black background). Unfortunately, potentially something to worry about in this day and age.

Yep, there's always sumthin'.
We have a pretty good collection of college logos, Texas 'flags', different colors, etc. I wondered about the white on black...if the white were reflective, it might work; otherwise, it seems 'counter' to what our eyes usually look for in print/signs. I'm going to shoot for the reflective black numbers on a 'limestone' background(to match the house and not provide too much stark contrast with the concrete). Our Japanese Maple 'anniversa-tree' is perhaps one season from obscuring our house numbers from certain angles. Time to get the numbers painted before it's 90+ degrees in a couple of months .

EMS told me they recommend everyone paint the numbers for EMS/fire/police emergencies. It could literally be a lifesaver.

Agreed; it's not all about pizza delivery .
Our house is particularly odd in that the address ends in --01 , yet the house is in the MIDDLE of the block. My first thought, looking for a --01 house, would be to look at a corner/first house...not any more based on our house number.

Default Address Numbers Painted

I had Austin Curb Service do my address numbers and they came out great...Rick Bryant is the owner and he's also the one that did the numbers in Round Rock with the Long horn logos, he does really great work! His number is 512-589-7574 and he can also be found on google if you google "address numbers painted in Austin"

I never thought you'd have to actually seek out a curb painter... seems like they're always putting flyers on my door Of course, they're always very "official" looking flyers to confuse people into thinking that painting is mandatory or done by the local gubmint.
