Do You Have Painting Questions?
You should consider painting as a home improvement investment; painting may not be as epic as a bathroom or kitchen renovation. You may decide to only hire a painter maybe once or twice in a lifetime, so like many people, you may be unfamiliar with the process. So we encourage our clients to ask these important questions!
These are the most frequently asked painting question we receive.
How long will it take to paint a house?
The process can take as little as 4-5 days from the time we connect with you. However, the actual timing will depend on the condition of your paint surfaces, the type of work required, our schedule and weather conditions if the project involves exterior work.
During our consultation with you, we can evaluate your situation and let you know how long we think it will take to complete your painting project.
Will you complete my job promptly without interruption?
Yes. We schedule each job to be completed in consecutive days (M-F.)
How will my personal property be protected from paint?
On interiors, after you have removed your delicate items, all areas or remaining items, will be covered with clean drop cloths or plastic sheeting. On exteriors, shrubs and surrounding areas will be protected so that no evidence of paint splatter or paint peelings remains.
Do I need to move everything from the rooms before you paint?
We kindly ask you to remove all small items and breakables. Unless agreed otherwise, we will move and protect all of the furniture and fixtures.
Can I leave my home or office while the painting is in progress?
Yes. Most people we work for are not home while work is going on. While you are at work or running errands, our crew will be busy painting, but it is entirely up to you.
What do I need to do to change something about the job or need additional work while painting while the painting is in progress?
Please let our office know about it or feel free to contact your estimator directly. More often than not, it is more cost-effective for us to make a change or do additional during the project than to have us return after the project is complete.
What should I consider when hiring a painting contractor?
You need to consider many variables when selecting who you will want to work in your home or business. You can save yourself a decent amount of frustration if you pick a good one because not all painters are created equal.
