We want you happy upon the completion of your job. But regardless of the quality of work done, you may be unhappy with the colors you choose.

After selecting a painting contractor, the selection of colours 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.

The cost of a few samples of paint is much cheaper than repainting a room 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.

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.

You as the homeowner can be held personally responsible for injures sustained by an uninsured worker while they are on your property. You can be in a very awkward position with your own insurance company as a result of this type of accident.

Most people do not realize this, but it can be verified by a phone call to your attorney or insurance agent. Always ask for verification of insurance if you have any doubt. And remember a companies general liability insurance is not the same as workers compensation! The best way to be sure is to request a certificate of insurance.

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.

While every job is different. Normally, for a full house painting project you can expect a crew of 2-3 painters.


When we come in to paint your home we are expecting to handle everything ourselves.

We move all of the furniture into the middle of the room, remove pictures from the walls and take down any window treatments. All furniture and belongings are carefully covered and all floors are protected with the proper drop cloths during painting.

The only items we ask the customer to move are the small knick- knack type items. Upon completion of the painting we will place all furniture back in the location that it was removed from and re-hang pictures and window treatments.

Many factors can contribute to that.

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.

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.

Yes. However, there are necessary steps that must be taken first in order to assure success. Only use a contractor who is knowledgeable about those steps and one who is willing to explain the proper procedures to you.

Cracks can be repaired but regardless of the preparation done some may reappear. However the best chance at successfully repairing those cracks is to dig out the crack, fill it, tape it with a fiberglass mesh tape and sand it smooth, then prime over your patched area before repainting.

Our employees are all experienced in drywall repair and replacement. Most minor repairs that need to be made can be done as part of the preparation work we do prior to painting.

The only answer I can give you is, lighting, lighting, lighting! Light and reflections in any given room affect the outcome of your color.

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.
