Answers To Common Interior Painting Questions

How should we prepare for your arrival?

Do we need to stay home while you are painting?

Nope. We can make arrangements ahead of time to accommodate your schedule. Our employees are hand selected by Tanja, bonded, insured and screened with criminal background checks, so you can feel comfortable and trust that your home is in good hands.

How is our home protected before and during painting?

Our prep is meticulous.That means total surface protection, furniture & floor coverings, and our workers take care. You’ll never find dirt tracked into your home or smudges on the walls.

We have cracks in our walls. Do we need to repair them before the painters arrive?

Nope. We’ll handle minor drywall and plaster repairs, including fixing any nicks, holes, blemishes or marks found on surfaces that will be painted. Holes are filled and sanded; cracks are thoroughly scraped out, filled and sanded; water stains or marks are sealed before painting; and built up dirt or grease is cleaned.

We also check the caulking around all windows and frames, crown molding, chair rails, etc. and recaulk as necessary with our elastomeric caulking to ensure minimal shrinkage through seasonal weather change. Told you we’re a one stop shop 😉

When should we expect to repaint the interior of our home?

What kind and colour of paint should we use?

Paint isn’t one-size-fits-all. We can suggest a paint match that’s best suited for each surface and we can help with colour selection (thereby avoiding paralysis by analysis).

Answers To Common Exterior Painting Questions

How should we prepare for your arrival?

Do we need to stay home while you are painting?

Nope. We can make arrangements ahead of time to accommodate your schedule. Our employees are hand selected by Tanja, bonded, insured and screened with criminal background checks, so you can feel comfortable and trust that your home is in good hands.

When should we expect to repaint the exterior of our home?

We live in a rainforest with four seasons; our homes must be protected from the elements. Moisture can cause paint to rapidly degrade, but a quality paint job done by a professional crew should last anywhere from four to seven years.

How do you prepare our home for painting?

We pressure wash the siding to remove any mildew and loose paint, then prepare for scraping, feather sanding, spot priming, and filling. For exterior caulking, our standard product used is Big Stretch® – a highly durable high-performance caulk. After caulking is cured, priming is complete, and all the prep is done, we begin painting.
