What’s Included in the Professional Interior Painting Process?
Have you ever wondered what to expect during the interior painting process?
Sure, you’re looking for a beautiful paint job, but what about the other details woven through the whole experience, from the first call to the final walkthrough?
Let’s dig into a few key points; facets of the process that you might not immediately think of, but that have a huge impact. And, if you’re currently looking for a house painter, feel free to use these as talking points to help you find the best professional possible.
1. Feel Valued, Right From Step 1
We’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating… You deserve to feel valued and important, and to have your time respected. We’re talking punctuality, prompt communication, and a detailed estimate that covers all the bases.
2. Health and Safety Protocols
Hiring a house painter always involves trust, but especially these days. A number of our recent reviews, in fact, have specifically mentioned being grateful for our masked painters that respect social distancing and health standards. It’s a big deal!
3. Masking (Surfaces, Not Just Faces)
A project starts with prep, and not just actual surface prep. Project containment is key, meticulously protecting surrounding spaces and surfaces. Furniture, flooring, masking off trim and windows, and the list goes on.
4. Protecting Your Floors
A lot of homeowners don’t really consider foot traffic, until the process begins… You don’t need shoes worn across hardwood or carpet, especially as painters come in and out and set up their work stations. Beyond old-school drop cloths (which still do have a place in some cases), we lay down a durable, disposable covering that neatly and securely covers your floors. When necessary, our painters also wear slip-on shoe covers.
Daily communication is a huge part of the process, ensuring that you’re loving the process, the results, and know exactly how your project is progressing. The best way to do this is to have a designated job site leader who is your clear point of contact, and can make sure every detail is on-track and carefully managed.
You should feel comfortable, confident, and in-the-know every step of the way. If you have any other questions about your painting project or process, feel free to contact us. You can chat with us live right here on our website, or contact us.
