How do we work

The pricing for a painting job varies depending on complexity of the job, and the amount of details at the site. The best way to deal with it, is to get a personalized estimate at your place. This way, we can discount the amount of work needed done, see if there are any repairs you may need, but not aware of, and discuss the products to be used during the project.
Almost all painting companies offer free estimates, and you don't need more than 1-2 days advance notice. Painting business, however, is weather-related, with peak season in the Spring-Summer, and slow times around Winter. If you are doing interior, we suggest booking it for the Winter, and doing the exterior in the Summer.
There are some industrial, oil-based paints used for commercial painting, but all of the paint retailers have been replacing their line of products to safe, latex, eco-friendly products for the past two years. "Benjamin Moore" for example, offers several products with zero VOC. This line of product is used at Hospitals, so it will be more than safe for the regular house. It has no smell, no dangerous particles, and dries to touch within 20 minutes.
We have reviewed that offer, and there are several points worth mentioning. If you would like to use medium grade paint for the rooms, and get it at wholesale pricing, just the materials to get your 3 rooms painted, would be $100. Doing the work with no initial preparation, would take an average of 4 hours per coat per room (done by professionals), which is less than $20 per hour. Taking into consideration the fact it's the company offering the service, not the guy working at your place, it seems that the actual painter working at your place would be worth about $10-15 per hour, thus the work quality. We suggest calling the company offering this special, and ask them more detailed questions on how the job will be done.
Usually, we discuss it at the estimate, but the normal procedure for us is to remove the faceplates, mask the floors with the tape, cover all floors with the drop sheets. Then we check all walls for visible damages, and everything we see with the naked eye. If the clients are more picky, we use a hand light, and check the walls more carefully for deeper, hidden damages. The final resort, when people want to see brand new walls, we offer a level 5 skim-coat with the drywall mud, then prime them, and finish with a thin, fine coat of paint, so the walls look brand new.
