How To Prepare for Your Painting Estimate

Why Do You Want To Paint?

Knowing why you want to spruce up your space is an important factor in the estimating process. When our estimator is clear on why you are painting we can help guide you in the most cost effective, efficient way. For example, if you are choosing to paint because you are selling your home we would take a different approach than if you were painting because you just purchased the home of your dreams.

Commonly Ask Questions

Can windows be painted?

  • Windows can be painted, but not all windows should be painted. It depends on the substrate of the window and the moment of the window. We will not paint all windows because we don’t believe it is durable.

Can vinyl siding be painted?

Is painting cabinets durable?

  • If cabinets are painted the correct way then it is very durable. The “correct way” includes doing the right prep work, using the right primer and using the best finish coats. Ask to see one of our cabinet samples!
