If you are having new carpeting, laminate, or hardwood floors installed, then it is imperative to have the painting done first. Insulation of these products can somewhat damage or mark up the baseboards and walls, but we can always come back for a touchup.
Large pieces of furniture are moved to the middle of the room - where possible - and protected with new drop cloths or plastic.
Depending on the situation it is likely for a homeowner to stay in their home while it is being painted. It can be subject to the scope of work and how long the work will affect critical areas such as the bathrooms or kitchen. If all ares of the room are scheduled for paint, then that room will have to be closed off until completed. If a homeowner is not able to leave during the process, we plan the project out so that they can be as comfortable and as unimpeded as possible.
This is a good question and one that depends on how an area is used, but it also depends on the how much gloss the homeowner prefers. The higher the sheen of the paint used the more wipe-able and cleanable it is and the longer the paint surface will last. On the other hand, the higher the gloss, the more the texture and wall anomalies will be highlighted. Colors will also reflect differently than they will with a flat sheen. Higher sheens bounce and focus light. Some homeowners like that and some don’t. For more information on Sheen, please visit the Behr Website.
Our advice is that in any rooms with high temperature or humidity at least an stain sheen is recommended – the laundry room, bathrooms, and kitchen are good examples. Sheen choice in any other rooms are subjective and a matter of preference on the part of the homeowners.
On interior projects, bubbling and peeling are not a typical problem in most areas where dampness and heat are not present. Homeowners with pets and young children will notice more scratches, dents and dirt faster. We recommend paint with a higher sheen in these cases, especially in the hallway or children’s bedroom, so that most of these things can be wiped clean.
Cost depends on what the scope of work is, what the conditions are, what the desired color scheme is and how much materials will be needed.

Of course! Our estimates are completely free, no-obligation and we can typically write up a quote right there on the spot.
Yes we are fully insured with $1,000,000 in general liability and worker’s comp.
The span of a job depends on the size of your home and the level of difficulty in painting however, most homes only take 1-3 days from start to finish.
