Frequently Asked Questions
- Residential painting page:
- How do I get an estimate:
You may either contact us or use our “get a quote” link
- I have received a number of quotes from different painting contractors. There seems to be a why variance in prices, why?
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? All these factors influence price
- Why is painting so expensive?
Painting, like everything else, is expensive. We realize that. In the last 20 years, our labor cost has increased fourfold. The cost of paint has almost doubled. Insurance for a business is astronomical. So you are absolutely right, it is expensive. But not when you look at the cost of painting compared to carpeting, fabric, wallpaper, and window treatments at about $10.00 to $50.00 per square foot compared to painting at about $1.00 to $2.00 per square foot, it doesn’t seem too bad.
- There are many types of paint finishes – flat, high gloss, satin and even eggshell. Does it really make a difference what type of finish I use? Yes, the finish can make a dramatic difference depending on the surface and area you are preparing to paint. Our expertise in this area will help you choose the right finish for your project!
- Interior Painting Page:
How often should you paint the interior of your home or business?
Many factors can contribute to that. Some of them are:
- The quality of the paint used.
- The amount of traffic through the area.
- Whether or not there are smokers in the home or office.
- If a fireplace is used on a regular basis during the winter months, and does the damper work properly?
- How many children and their ages?
While there are many factors to take into consideration, every home and business is different. However a good quality job done by a professional contractor under normal conditions should last anywhere from 5-6 years. Call us and we will be happy to evaluate your particular concerns.
What if I don’t like the color I picked?
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 colors to be used are the next most important decision that you need to make. Take your time on color selection. 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
I have cracks that always reappear. What can be done?
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.
I see paint advertised all the time. How do I choose?
There is an old saying “You only get what you pay for.” This is especially true for paint. Discuss what you want the paint to do with us or your paint store, to determine the best product for your needs. Remember that the paint is only part of the job. Proper application is also as important. It is always the best decision to use quality products with quality craftsmanship.

Preparation: Our painters pay careful attention to surface preparation as well as the protection of furnishings and possessions during all work in your home. After assessment by our crew, interior preparation can consist of any needed drywall preparation, holes that are filled and sanded, windows, doors and frames that are caulked and nail pops that are fixed. Exterior preparation consists of proper scraping and sanding of bare spots, examination of any carpentry needs such as rotted wood, and priming of the surface in preparation of proper paint application. Proper protection of shrubs and walkways is always completed during all exterior work.
Painting: We use top of the line paints and primers for all our painting. For interior painting, your choices range from flat to egg-shell, and for exterior can be latex or oil based. Our estimator will work with you to determine the correct paint to meet your needs and desires. Paint can be applied through brush work, rollers or spray machines. The best application process will be chosen based on your job type.
Final Product: We realize that in a service oriented business, our only job security comes from a satisfied customer. We will work with you to ensure 100% customer satisfaction, as we realize that a satisfied customer will not only call us again, but will refer us to their friends, family and coworkers. We want you to be as happy with your end product as we are.
