Interior House Painting
There are few things that will ruin a paint job before it has even started, faster, than a poor preparation job. Walls and trim that have not been properly sanded, dusted, and cleaned will look unprofessional and make a homeowner wish that they had not bothered to undergo the painting project. This is a huge mistake that we have seen hundreds of times and is one of the more significant reasons why home-owners end up unhappy with a painting contractor. Proper preparation of all surfaces that are to be painted is a part of the Valley Rock Painting DNA and of utmost importance to our business.
Our residential painters are trained in all aspects of interior painting, from prep and repair work to ensuring proper paint coverage on all surfaces, including the following surface areas and finishes:
- Sanding & mild surface preparation and repair (Drydex, where necessary), followed by a wiping to remove remaining micro-debris
- Gaps/spaces in baseboard and window/door trim will be filled with acrylic latex caulking (as needed)
- TSP (trisodium phosphate) solution used to wipe down walls when necessary
- Floor areas covered with canvas drop-cloths, all furniture covered with plastic sheets
Painting (all surfaces receive two coats)
- Ceilings – Flat sheen
- Walls – Eggshell sheen (Kitchens and Bathrooms may require a ‘higher’ sheen depending on moisture and ventilation)
- Baseboards - Window & Door Trim - Doors – Semi-gloss sheen
- Vacuuming & surface wiping
- Leftover paint cans will be labelled according to room and left with client
- Once the job has been completed according to the specifications detailed in the contract, a site visit by the Valley Rock Painting owner is standard before a home or business owner is obligated to pay. This inspection is to ensure that the client is getting what they are paying for, and to address any possible short-comings or areas of concern. Deficiencies will be dealt with quickly and respectfully.
