What is the purpose of paint?

Paint provides a protective layer between your home and the elements, environmental pollutants and the sun. It also allows you to reflect your personality through color in a beautiful way!

Can you give me an estimate over the phone?

We cannot give you an estimate over the phone. In order to provide you with the most accurate estimate possible, we need to first see your home or office. When we meet, we will discuss your needs, assess the space, and determine any special factors that will impact our pricing.

How long does it take to complete the average paint job?

The average exterior paint job takes 4-5 days. The average interior paint job can take anywhere from a few days to a month depending on the size and complexity of the job.

Can you paint my aluminum siding or vinyl?

Yes! In order to provide the most durable coverage, we will first need to power wash your home. Ensuring that the vinyl or aluminum siding is clean of environmental residue will ensure premium coverage, durability, and attractiveness.

How do I know what sheen to use?

To pick the correct sheen, you need to think about where the paint will be used. Flat paint is traditionally used on ceilings and walls that stay relatively clean and moisture free. Eggshell is also used on walls and has a slight sheen – it is also the most popular choice among homeowners. Satin or Pearl finishes are typically used on walls in bathrooms or kitchens, where cleaning of the walls is easy. Semi-gloss and Gloss paints are used on trim and doors. In general, the shinier the finish, the easier it is to clean but the harder it is to touch up without it being noticeable.

Are there special paints for bathrooms?

Yes! There are paints that are specially designed to resist mildew in humid environments. These paints are usually reserved for kitchens and bathrooms.

Can I paint my wood paneling?

Sure! We just need to make sure the paneling is clean and free of any oils or cleaners. To do so, we wash the paneling with a specialized cleaner like TSP. We then prime the paneling with an oil primer, which will provide better adhesion, insuring that no bleeding will occur. Finally, we apply 2 coats of latex paint.

Can you suggest colors for me?

We can suggest colors for any room. One key tip: It is very import to look at colors in all lighting! The color will change due to the angles of artificial lighting and natural lighting in a room.

I’ve heard of cool and warm colors. What colors are cool and warm?

Warm colors remind you of the sun. They include red, yellow and orange. Cool colors remind you of the water. They include blue, green and violet. There are also neutral colors. These colors – such as beige, white, black and gray – coordinate with both cool and warm colors.
