Frequently Asked Questions

Interior Painting

All holes are filled and sanded. All cracks are properly scraped out, filled and sanded. Caulking is inspected around all windows and frames, doors and door frames and re-caulked as needed. Crown molding, chair rail etc. are all caulked and properly prepared. All nail pops are repaired and sanded. Any water stains, crayon marks etc. are sealed before painting and grease and heavy dirt accumulations are cleaned. Any mildew that is present will be removed prior to painting.

Many factors can contribute to the frequency in which you repaint:

  1. The quality of the paint used is of the utmost importance.
  2. The amount of traffic through a particular area.
  3. Whether or not there are smokers in the home.
  4. Is there a fireplace that is used on a regular basis during the winter months, and does the damper work properly ?
  5. How many children and their ages ?

There are too many factors to take into consideration, and each home can be different. However a good quality job done by a professional crew under normal conditions should last anywhere from 6-10 years. Call us and we will be happy to evaluate your particular situation and offer you a more precise answer.

After moving the furniture into the middle of the room it will be covered in plastic. All floors will be protected by canvas drop cloths. We use clear plastic on the furniture so that you can always see what is under the covering. Many times if the furniture is covered with canvas you do not know what is under it and damage is much more likely to occur from the canvas when it is removed. Not to mention the fact that who wants canvas with old paint all over it on top of their belongings.

For most applications on interior walls, a latex paint will offer many advantages over alkyd paint. In most available products you will receive better color retention and the finish will be non-yellowing. Additionally, the latex products will have a lower odor, dry faster, and you will be able to clean up with soap and water.

All of our painters are all experienced in drywall repair and replacement. Virtually any repairs that need to be made can be done as part of the preparation work we do prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

Tough question! Like our bodies no two houses are perfectly alike. There are many factors that will contribute to the life of a paint job. (Daily sun exposures, amount of shrubbery, moisture presence, soffit and gable venting, etc.) But as a general rule a new paint job in our climate should last anywhere from 6-8 years. But this is a general rule. There are just too many differing factors to list here.

Call us and we will be happy to evaluate your particular situation and offer you a more precise answer.

You should certainly protect your deck from unnecessary moisture intrusion and the harmful effects of the sun’s ultra-violet rays. Use of a penetrating stain, containing water repellant ingredients in most cases will protect your deck best. You may also consider using a clear water repellant, but this will need more frequent maintenance. The pigment in the stain will absorb the ultra-violet rays from the sun and protect the wood fibers from degradation. In most cases a stain will need maintenance every 2-4 years while the clear sealers require maintenance every 1-2 years.

Prior to finishing the deck it is important to wash the deck thoroughly to remove dead wood fibers, dirt, and any mildew spores. It is important to note that inactive mildew spores can be present and not be visible, but still should be treated.

One final note, if you plan on cleaning your deck with a pressure washer take caution not to use excessive pressure or spray at an improper angle. Improper use can severely damage your deck and cost you much more than you saved by undertaking the project yourself. Take the worry out of this type of project and hire the professional contractor.

Yes, absolutely. While it is understood that people are cautious and confused about the logic in doing so there is no reason to hesitate. These products are often sold with the understanding that they are maintenance free. Nothing is further from the truth. These products do require regular maintenance that is more often than not never performed because the homeowner believes that they require no maintenance. Washing periodically is needed to remove dirt and oxidation just like your automobile and when this is not done, repainting or replacement will eventually be needed. Obviously repainting is by far the most feasible alternative. So with that said, how do you paint it? and how long will it last? Call us for more information!

Many painters will replace rotted wood during the course of a paint job, as will our crews. However, if the extent of the damage is more than we normally handle, we will inform you of that and you can make a decision as to whether you want a carpenter you already know of to make the repairs or you would like us to recommend one to you. If rotted would is discovered during the course of your painting we will notify you of that so that you can determine what course of action you would like to take.

Questions about Color

Your home’s exterior is the first impression visitors have of you. You should want it to look good. First, be sure to take into account the fixed colors of your home – brick, stone work and the roof color. You may want to consider choosing a paint color that will pick up the color from one of these non-painted areas such as, for example, a brown that appears in your brick. In addition, the style of your home may play a role in the colors you select. If, for example, you have an architecturally accurate reproduction of a colonial-style home, you may want to use authentic exterior colors from that period. Or, if you have a Victorian-era home you may want to use a number of colors to accentuate the architectural details (gingerbread) on your home.

Generally, you can’t go wrong selecting a light color for the body of the house and a darker, complimentary color for the trim. Another way to set your home off is to create an interesting welcoming entrance by painting your front door in a bold color scheme. Your local independent paint retailer can help you select just the right color scheme for your exterior project.

We want you happy upon the completion of your job. But regardless of the quality of work done, if at the completion you are unhappy with the color you chose, you most likely will not use our company again. Every painting contractor has had a job where the customer liked the quality of work, the crew and everything about the company but they were unhappy with the colors used and now their whole perspective is clouded and they view the job as a bad experience.

After selecting a painting contractor, the selection of colors to be used are the next most important decision that you need to make. Take your time on color selection and only use a company that is willing to assist you in making those decisions. Ask for color charts ahead of time and buy a quart or so of paint to try it on a couple of different areas of your home as well as in different types of lighting if you feel you need to. The cost of a few samples of paint is much cheaper than repainting the trim or entire house if you end up unhappy with the color chosen

If you do not want to change the color of your home, then just ask us to match the existing color and we will most likely be able to do that.

We can get the same color, but keep in mind that every house is different and the color may not look the same or have the same effect on your home as it does on theirs. Find out from your friend what the color is and get a sample if possible from the paint dealer where your neighbor purchased their paint. Paint a few small areas and check how it will look on your home. Lighting, landscaping and other factors may give it a different look on your home.

The only answer I can give you is, lighting, lighting, lighting! Light and reflections in any given room affect the outcome of your color. Read “When Color Is Critical, Switch On The Lights” for more information on the effect of lighting on your colors.

About Our Process

There are a number of good painting contractors to choose from and what you will normally find is that the established companies are usually fairly close in price. However at times you will get an estimate that is a lot lower than others and at times you may get one that seems excessively high. There could be many factors here. Is the company licensed and insured ? Do the painters work for the company therefore being subject to all of the additional payroll expenses or are they daily labor?

If you’d like to discuss the competitiveness of an estimate you received from us in comparison to another, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Drop cloths are used underneath all areas that are being painted. Walkways, patio furniture and shrubbery are all protected during painting.

No. In our particular area normally both husband and wife many times have to work outside of the home. This presents no problem whatsoever for us. However, we will most likely need access to the house in order to open the windows and doors in order to paint them. We normally arrive on the job before you need to leave for work and special arrangements can always be made to pick up a key ahead of time if needed. We have never had a problem when it comes to the trustworthiness of our painters. Your home will be respected the same as it would be if you were there. However we also realize that many people are uncomfortable with leaving workmen at their house unattended. We understand this hesitancy by some and are not offended by that.

For the painting of the exterior there probably is not much at all that you need to do. We will remove the storm windows ourselves and we normally move patio furniture etc. If you have firewood stacked next to the house or something of that nature then we would ask that you move that approx. 6′ away from the areas to be painted. We can move it if necessary however an extra charge may apply.

While every job is different normally you can expect a crew of 2-4 painters.

Contact us and we will schedule your work.

We feel that a house is a lot like an automobile in the fact that the investment is large and the maintenance is a must. If we don’t wait until the engine blows to check or change the oil we can protect our investment. Please ask us for copies of two articles, “Protect Your Investment” and “Why Paint” for a few more thoughts on the subject.
