Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take for my house to be painted, and once you start, will you stay on my job?
An exterior house painting project usually takes a few days to complete depending on the size of the home and the amount of surface prep required. One interior room, on the other hand, can typically be completed in just one day—depending on the complexity of the room. When we schedule any painting job, consecutive days are always planned with no interruptions except for weather events or other unforeseen circumstances.

What kind of preparation should I do before the team arrives?
When it comes to moving heavy furniture and protecting anything that will stay in the room while it is being painted—we’ve got you covered. All you need to do is clear the room of any smaller or fragile items. This helps improve the speed and efficiency of our work. At the end of the job, we will perform any necessary cleaning to ensure no unwanted paint is left on any walls, doors, or woodwork.

How do I fix a large drywall hole?
Drywall can usually be fixed using a mesh patch, joint compound, and a fresh coat of paint. This isn’t always the easiest job to get right the first time by yourself, however, so it is always a good idea to have the job performed by a professional painter. Our team has repaired countless holes in drywall and can complete the job perfectly with advanced techniques at a minimal cost.

How do I touch up a painted surface after the job is done?
For this exact reason, our team gives you any leftover paint at the end of the job. This helps you avoid having to make a perfect color match when your walls or doors just need a quick touch-up or quick fix—dealing with a more severe problem? Then reach out to us for follow-up services.

How often should my exterior be painted?
Here in New England, your average exterior paint job will last between 4 and 6 years. However, it is essential to remember that several factors can alter that timeframe—including sun exposure, high humidity, and snow. Sometimes, even when you think the paint still looks good, there could be minor problems developing right under your nose. Our team is always available to provide a professional analysis to give you an idea of when it is time to repaint.

My house and deck need repainting, but the wood is beginning to rot; what should I do?
Rotting wood needs to be replaced before any painting is performed. Thankfully, our team has got you covered. We use on-staff carpenters to replace your rotting wood to help you avoid wasting money with a temporary fix.

How do you arrive at a painting estimate, and why are some prices all over the place from high to low?
A lot goes into our estimates, but the main factors are the level of thoroughness, the attention to detail, and the quality desired. For example, suppose you want an expert craftsperson who will properly prepare a surface for painting and protect the surrounding non-paint areas. In that case, you are going to be spending more money than hiring a not-so-experienced painter who might give your home a “quick once over.”

Because each job is different, we don’t use unit pricing. Instead, we determine factors like the type of surface prep and level of difficulty—is there any lead or hazardous material that would be disturbed, the terrain surrounding the structure, how many colors do you want, and any special equipment needed?

We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your painting needs thoroughly. This allows us to provide you a free estimate on our initial visit so you can learn more about how competitively priced we are for the quality of the work we provide.


Why is it so hard to choose colors?

Choosing a color for your home is more complicated than simply picking out your favorite color. Why? Because there can be a significant disconnect between picking colors, how the space is being used, and how you want to feel in that space. Figuring out the suitable color for the right room is simply not a skill that most of us learned in school!

If you find it challenging to figure out what color will work best in your space, please reach out to our team. We have years of experience matching the right color to the style and atmosphere homeowners are looking for and can suggest how to choose that perfect shade for your home.
