We take careful precaution to ensure our process is detailed, comprehensive, and calculated to minimize issues, and enhance the durability and quality of the paint application.
-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 for house painting Berkeley CA. 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.
Benefits of House Painting
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.
Types of Paint:
Oil based: Most professional painters in Berkeley CA, including our business, 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.
The paint finish, also known as 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.
Our painting services are affordable, because we want to work with you to maintain the elegance and quality of your home. There are many other options within the painting business, but here at Berkeley Painters, we take our customer service, attention to detail, and professionalism seriously. We
know that any home improvement task can be nerve wracking and expensive, which is why we seek to take all of the stress out of paint work. Our business operates smoothly, so our clients can be worry free when we come in to improve their home. We seek to always provide high quality, affordable service, so you always know who to call when it’s time for a reset button on your walls. We know accidents happen- moving furniture around can cause marks on the walls, children playing can draw and mark with dark colors when you’re not looking, etc. Any number of things can happen to your walls, because it’s your home. It’s meant to be lived in. But when it’s time for a blank canvas, we’re here to help. Give us a call, schedule your date, and we’ll come in and make your home look like new again. No marks, only a smooth, clean surface. However, if there are any marks that you would like to keep, for example, marks denoting the growth of your children over the years, simply make a note of it to us before we begin work, and we’ll ensure that those memories are preserved for years to come.
When your walls are scuffed, marked, or chipped, a fresh coat of color can transform your house. A new color or coat can camouflage flaws, and visually alter the look of a room- it can make spaces appear larger, ceilings appear taller, all depending on color and texture choices. A color that really suits a room can make all the difference, which is why we aim to aid every client in their choice of color/luster, to ensure that our client knows what they're getting, and we can recommend the colors that may work best in a specific space. We love unique colors, and when our clients know exactly what shade they want, that makes it all the more simple. However, if you don't have any clue what color, shade, luster, etc you want, don't worry a bit- this is your chance to be creative, and to make a choice than will uplift your room. We will help you choose the color if necessary, and will give you as much or as little advice as you want. We just want our clients to be happy with their selection, so everyone is satisfied.
