-We will begin by moving all furniture away from
the walls, and will use plastic drop cloths or large tarps to cover all of it. We will then tape down the sides of the plastic, and lay coverings on the floors.
-We will remove anything from the walls, like wall
hangings, clocks, pictures, etc, and will either cover or remove switch plates, outlet coverings and things of the sort.
-If your walls have wall paper, or any type of
texture that will need to be removed, we will assess the situations and move forward with the removal process. This could include scraping, sanding, caulking, stain removal, patching, and more.
-This next step is important, and is something that DIY house painters often miss, or do incorrectly. Before painting, it is important to repair any imperfections, holes and flaws in the walls. This could include spackling, and then sanding the area until smooth and ready for paint.
-The walls then may need to be cleaned and
lightly washed using a painter’s detergent, to ensure a smooth canvas. This step will remove all grease, dust, etc.
-Priming the walls is the next step, and will
help make the paint coats more durable and more smooth.
-The chosen paint color is applied next. We will use professional techniques learned through years of experience with interior painting in Berkeley, CA to provide your walls with a streak free look.
Give us a call today to talk about your project, and we’ll provide you with a detailed estimate, including our timeframe, the paint itself, painting materials, and our labor costs. We’ll ask questions to determine the cost, including the amount of preparation required for your walls, whether many repairs will need to be made, whether it will require sanding, texture removal, and more. At this time, you’re welcome to ask any questions you have about the painting process, what to expect, and how long it is expected to take, and more.
Different painting techniques can make your home feel more expensive, warm, and inviting. Trick your friends into thinking that you opted for major home facelift, when in reality all your home needed was a new paint shade on the walls. If you’re looking to put your house on the market, paint can help your house sell faster, and for a higher rate. A well kempt house can appear to be worth more to prospective buyers, and can raise your house’s value
and curb appeal. Picking a paint color is of course the most exciting part of this project, and whether you’re looking for something more neutral, something brighter, or the perfect white, we can walk you through our professional best practices when it comes to paint choices. It’s important to choose a color you love, to ensure that you’ll enjoy seeing it on your walls for years to come. The best way to test run different shades is to get some samples of prospective shades, and apply the colors to your walls and sit with it for a day or two.
No matter if you’ve used a visual page builder before, with Brizy you’ll be a pro the second you start using it.
Types of Paint:
Oil based: Most professional painters, including our business, most often recommend using oil based paint. In our experience, this type of paint is more durable, will look beautiful in your home for a longer period of time, and provide the best finish. Oil based paints dry more slowly, thus giving your professionals more time to achieve that perfect end result. This type of paint does produce stronger fumes however, which will have to air out with time.
Water based and Latex: There are other types of paint, including water based and latex. If you are interested in one of these types of paint, we are happy to talk you through the pros and cons of each, including our preferences and experiences with both. If you’re looking for more environmental benefits, using latex or water based may be a good option to look into.
Luster is another factor to consider when deciding on a paint color. Luster refers to the finish of the color; which depends on the ingredients included in each different type. Luster ranges from matte to shiny, with eggshell being the most common luster within the middle of the range. Glossy paints can provide an additional element to a space, and give a unique look. These types of finishes can hold up better than duller finishes, while more flat lusters can help camouflage minor irregularities on the walls. If you’re having a hard time deciding on the luster you would like, painting a patch on your wall and sitting with it for a day or two can be really helpful in color selection.
One aspect of this job that everyone can agree is important is color selection. The color of your walls can change everything about a room, which is why the color you choose is a vital step of the process. There are some paints that take on whatever light is inside the room, so the tone of the color will be different from room to room. There are other shades that have a cool or warm undertone, which can dramatically make a room feel modern and fresh or cozy and soft. Whatever you are going for in your space, we are certain that we have the expertise to guide you in the right direction. There are so many colors, and even a slight shade variation can make the biggest difference. Got a drab room? Try a pop of a bright color, like teal, or mustard yellow in a small space. Looking to make a room look larger than it is? Try a tone of white, which will fill a room with light and airiness. The finish of the product can affect the look and feel as well, whether it has a matte finish, eggshell, satin, semi gloss, and more. While these may seem like minute details, we take every care to treat your home like we would treat our own home. We would want someone to take this level of care with us, which is why we go above and beyond for our customers. Every step of this process is important to us, and we will be there for you every part of the way.
