The most important prep work that a homeowner or business owner can do is to finalize the paint color beforehand. This will help us to make sure we have the paint order correct and ready for the project.
Interior Painting: When it comes to interior painting there are several things that you need to do in order to get the space ready for us. The first step is to remove any breakables out of the room and to a safe location. This would also include removing any picture or hanging décor. Our crew will move any and all big furniture and objects. Once we have them moved to the center of the remove, we then cover them to ensure that no paint gets on any of your furniture.
Exterior Painting: The same applies with exterior painting. We just need the same items around the home or building to be picked up. We will move any large items around the house that need to be. This includes your porch or patio furniture.
We work closely with several local suppliers, most commonly Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams vendors. However, we are always happy to accommodate our customers’ product preferences, and can use whichever brand of paint you prefer. We can also recommend a variety of zero-VOC and low-VOC paints to eliminate fumes and toxicity in your home. We are happy to provide information on the various product lines each brand makes, as well as make recommendations for the best products for every type of project. Different surfaces call for different kinds of paint. Whether your project entails drywall, plaster, wood, vinyl, brick, concrete, metal, etc., we have experience with every type of surface and can help you make the right decision for the best adhesion, coverage and protection possible!
There are a lot of different types of finishes to choose from. This is also called sheen. The types of finishes you can choose from are: Flat, Matte, Eggshell, Satin, Semi-gloss, and High-gloss finish. Here is the breakdown of all the different finishes:
Regardless of the paint finish you choose; you’ll want to make sure that you pick one that you pick a paint that is high grade. We can’t stress enough that you get what you pay for when it comes to type of paint you choose. Overtime it will provide you the best coverage, durability, and adhesion.
We accept cash, check, and most major credit cards. On credit card transactions, a 3.5-4% processing fee will be added to the final invoice. We do not accept American Express.
When it comes to an estimate, the ideal situation is for all the decision makers to be there during it. My Painter understands though if that’s not possible. When it’s not possible for all the decision makers to be there, we ask that you converse ahead of time to agree on the scope of work so that there aren’t any miscommunications or needless delays.
Additionally, we want to hear about what you liked or didn’t like about your last painting job. This will help us to be aware of what is important to you and help us to exceed past your expectations. We want to make sure that we can eliminate any disappointment from the outset. What will also help everything run smoothly is when a budget has been decided on beforehand. Your home is an investment and painting it will help to protect your investment. We understand though that everyone has a budget, deciding what your budget is will help us to tailor our recommendations to your needs.
Consider what paint colors you’re wanting in your home. If possible, make your decision ahead of time but if you’re needing help regarding this, then don’t worry. My Painter can help you to make the right decisions. Come prepared to ask us questions, we want you to benefit as much as possible from our expertise.
When it comes to an estimate, we like to make sure that there is enough time to go over the entire project and answer any questions that you may have. A typical inspection will only take 30 minutes or less. If the project is of considerable size though we make sure not to rush anything and let it take as long as it needs to for you to feel confident. Our number one priority is to make sure you are happy with our work from start to finish. That starts with giving you the best guidance and information through the entire process.
After the competition of the inspection, you can typically see your written proposal within 24 hours via email. If it is a large project, then it may take up to 2-3 days to get the written proposal. However, we aim to please in any way and every way we can. Therefore, if you’re on a tight timeline then just let us know and we will always make it work, giving you your estimate as quickly as you may need it.
No matter what type of building or material we offer both commercial and residential painting all year round whether interior or exterior.

Absolutely! We understand that you have a budget and priorities. Therefore, we can section the work order off anyway that you need to whether you need it by line items, sections or project phases. Often, we break down the project for completing the scope of work into various phases or even into different scopes of work so that you can compare cost and make the best decision when it comes to pursing a certain aspect of your project.
