Painting FAQ

Q:   How do I get started?
A: I will contact you to discuss your painting project in more detail. I will visit your home and review your painting project and provide you an estimate. Assuming you agree, a date will be arranged to begin the project. We are in the business of painting homes, but finding the best solution given your needs, is our primary concern. All consultations we provide are always complimentary, whether we come to an agreement or not.

Q:  How much money can I expect to pay?
A: There are many factors to consider when determining painting costs. Condition of surface, size of project, and the complexity of the refinishing itself all factor into the price of the project. You can feel confident when you deal with us that you will get a fair price.

Q:  How long will it take to paint my house?
A: This depends on the condition of your surfaces, the type of work required, and weather conditions if the project involves exterior work. During our consultation with you, we will evaluate your situation and let you know how long we think it will take to complete your painting project.

Q: How long will my paint job last?
A:
Generally up to 10 years before a full repaint with one or two touch-ups in between.
The sunny side and areas that were more weathered won’t last as long. Keep in mind, much of the work initially done by; us will not have to be repeated in future repaints, eg.re-sanding, priming and caulking all the trim.

Q: What type of paint do you apply?
A: I have been using Kelly Moore paint for many years, but if the customer has a preference for another brand, then that is the paint I will use.

Q: Do you guarantee your work?
A: If we do anything wrong, it is our responsibility to fix it at no charge. I can guarantee our work, but I can’t guarantee your wood. Because of what has or has not been done to the surface in years past, it effects the paint-worthiness.

Q: How to you price your work?
A: We work on an “estimate basis”. Because no one likes surprises, a not to exceed figure is given, when possible.

Q: Are you, the owner, on the job site?
A: All day, every day. My 30+ years in the painting industry bring a useful resource to produce a quality finished product. With all the dynamics of any project, this on site, single source responsibility allows the job to flow more smoothly.
