Why Is It Important To Hire a Painter with an In-house Carpentry Team?

carpentry and painting services Why Is It Important To Hire a Painter with an In-house Carpentry Team?

You’ve heard us say it before, and we’ll say it again: surface preparation is everything in the world of commercial and residential painting. Having a solid, healthy substrate makes or breaks the rest of the process, and dictates the performance of your coating.

While sanding and cleaning are crucial, sometimes surfaces need more than that. Wood rot, for example, is a common issue, and requires skilled wood repair or replacement before painting.

This is where having an in-house carpentry team becomes invaluable.

Doesn’t Every Painter Have Carpentry Services?

A lot of painting companies offer carpentry, but that doesn’t mean that they actually do the work themselves. It means that they can subcontract the project to a carpenter in their network. This system can work just fine, but it does involve extra steps, time, and expense.

In-House Carpentry Services Keep Your Project On-Track

 Why Is It Important To Hire a Painter with an In-house Carpentry Team?

Finding a painting company with a carpentry division streamlines the whole process.

Your estimator can spot the problem areas during the initial consultation, making note of what will need a closer look and evaluation. We can then factor this right into your estimate, eliminating any surprises or wasted time.

Having carpenters on our team also means that the work can be finished to our standards by professionals who are invested, familiar with our services, and work side-by-side with our painters.

A Smoother, Simpler Painting Process

Growing this division was a calculated choice on our part. We wanted to keep the workflow smooth and completely consistent, and having a skilled carpentry team has made that possible. Our clients love it too, knowing that with one call they can have repairs and painting taken care of - no issues, no hidden expenses, and no surprises.

The takeaway?

If you came across this article, maybe as you do your due diligence by researching before hiring a painter, we hope you’ve discovered one more good question to ask. At the very least, it could spark a helpful conversation, letting you gain a little more insight into your painter’s process and capabilities.

Best of luck with your project!

Customer Reviews

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

— Beth Marx & Melissa Kirsch
