When choosing a residential painting contractor to paint your home there are several important issues to consider. We find that it is critical that you check the background and experience of the people you are inviting into your home. At Western Accents our painters are employees of our company and are supervised and trained to respect your space and minimize disruption to your lifestyle. We work on schedules that accommodate your daily living and make it our mission to complete our work on-time and on-budget.
In hiring a painting contractor it’s important to verify the quality of materials being used. If the colors you have chosen are from a particular paint manufacturer, we will often use the exact coatings specified. We can also provide paint samples so you can see what the colors you have chosen look like in different light throughout the day. This is particularly important in rooms with numerous light sources. You may find that the shade you loved isn’t quite right for your space. By doing our “homework” ahead of time our goal is to make sure you are happy with the finished project.
Exterior residential painting projects will always be contingent on our Northwest weather. We will keep you informed as to timeframes in which a quality paint or decking job can be completed given any weather restrictions. Because of our extensive experience with residential exterior painting, we will let you know what needs to be done to the siding or wood surfaces on your house before the paint can be applied. There are various coatings that may not cover your old paint, or your siding may need repairs so that the new paint will adhere. Your home is a major investment. A quick paint job, without taking into consideration the condition of the surface and performing the needed preparation, can cost you money in the long run.
On interior residential painting, we may recommend that your walls or surfaces be properly prepared prior to the coating’s application. It’s all about expectations. There is nothing worse than investing in a painting project then seeing that the walls look the same, but just a different color. For many older construction homes, we take the time to repair the walls. Whether it’s damage from years of nail holes or from settling and “nail pops, “proper sheet rock repair prior to painting will assure a more satisfying outcome.
