A Few Things You Should Consider Before Starting a Project.
The majority of homes that are being painted are occupied and furnished. Please consider moving fragile and valuable objects. Our team can move heavier furniture or items you cannot move on your own. We ask that you let us know beforehand, your preferences for covering/protecting the area to be worked on. We also ask that you consider which Bathroom and utility sink the team will be able to use during work. The task of painting, repairing, and improving your Home or Office is not a simple or quick one. It requires time, and the knowledge of correct skills and tools.
Selecting your Paint.
Please note that we have accounts with the following vendors: Duron, Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore. We will be happy to work with you on choosing the manufacturer and color(s) to meet your needs. We can also offer you up to 60% off of certain materials and brands by using our accounts. To get you started, we have provided links to sample color charts for some of the major brands of paints.
- Dark colors recede, while light colors advance.
- To make a narrow room wider (either big or small room), paint the end walls in a lighter color.
- To make a small room seem bigger, use a lighter shade of paint.
- To make a large room seem smaller, use darker shades of paint.
- For an accent wall, choose a different shade in a shinier finish from the surrounding walls. (eg, surrounding walls in flat finish and accent wall in eggshell or satin finish.
- It is helpful to buy small samples of paint color you like and swatch them on you wall. Examine the way they look in different lightings, and during different times of the day through evening.
- Flat or matte finishes typically absorb a lot of light. These finishes tend to be good for covering up blemishes and uneven spots. These finishes are not easy to clean, but easier to touch up.
- High-gloss finishes typically reflect a lot of light. They are super durable, easy to clean, but can be somewhat unforgiving when covering up blemishes and often dry showing every brushstroke.
- Eggshell, satin, and semi-gloss finishes fall in between Flat and Gloss finishes. These finish lean more towards matte paints, but have a slight amount of sheen and are slightly more durable. They are easier to spot clean and tend to hold up to a little more wear and tear while being more forgiving to blemishes
