Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long will it take for my house to be painted?
A: Completion time depends on size of project, and for exterior project, on the weather. A single accent wall painting project, or refinishing and re-sealing a deck when the weather is perfect might take just a few days. Painting a house, the entire exterior or interior, might take two or three weeks. Please contact us with details about your project and we can give you an estimate of cost and time to complete.
Q: How do I fix a large drywall hole?
A: If you want to go the DIY route, then a fix can be made using a mesh patch, joint compound, and a fresh coat of paint. Blending in a textured match can be very difficult. Bear in mind that it is a difficult job to get right and hiring a professional service may be a better option. We've repaired countless drywall holes and can complete the job perfectly with more advanced techniques at a minimal cost.
Q: How often should a home's exterior be painted or stained?
A: In general, a semi-transparent stain should last 2 to 5 years. A solid color stain should last 8 years. A properly prep and painted exterior should last 10 or more years. However, other factors like sun exposure or dampness can shorten the time. It's far cheaper to maintain what is there than to replace or repair exterior home damage. Give us a call should you have questions for a professional analysis.
Q: What kind of preparation should I do before the team arrives?
A: We'll take care of heavy furniture lifting and protect anything that will stay in the room to be painted. However, clearing the room of smaller and fragile items will assist us greatly in getting the job done as efficiently as possible.
Q: What happens if I damage a painted surface after the job is done?
A: With every job we do, the leftover paint is given to the customer for this exact reason. Instead of needing to make a perfect color match, you'll have the exact same paint we used for touch-ups and quick fixes. If it's a more serious problem, we are certainly available for follow-up services.
