Any extenuating circumstances can usually be taken into account in some manner.
How much will my painting project cost ?

Fine Interior Painting will give you an estimate of the total cost for the painting project; however, the invoices are billed at a rate of time and materials. This is the only fair way to truly achieve quality honest workmanship with no corners cut (no pun intended)! Obviously, more time is spent on areas of high visibility such as kitchens, entry ways, and sitting rooms. The converse is true of less important areas.

Fine Interior Painting’s goal in quality workmanship is satisfied customers who are proud of the workmanship they received. That has always been the best to build referrals.
What is the basis for an excellent Paint job?
Proper residential repaint work is predicated on a proper foundation of what may lie under the paint film that is about to be applied. If that foundation is sound - called a good substrate - then the newly applied paint film will also be sound. There are several ways to ensure good paint adhesion. The surface must be clean and free from dirt, grease, oil, and grime. Washing the surface thoroughly with the proper cleaning solution and then removing the cleaning solution with a good rinsing is one way. Another way, if washing isn’t necessary, is to lightly ‘scuff’ or sand the surface and follow that with a vaccumming of the dust that is created. Filling any voids with a quality spackle, sanding, dusting, and priming as needed, all make the surface ready to receive the finish paint. That’s the easy part!
The finish paint should be applied to a uniform film build on all surfaces. This yields a uniform sheen on the surfaces coated. Unloading each brush (or roller) load of paint on the adjacent dry surface and feathering your edges is the best technique. Proper ‘feathering’ of edges prevents visible lap marks. This is especially important as the amount of light in a given room increases.
Priming the surfaces is important when needed: on marked or extremely dark surfaces, ceilings that show signs of dark marks left from house heating systems over the years, and on woodwork to help adhesion of the finish paint. A high build primer can fill in imperfections on surfaces, especially on trim work.
Two coats of finish paint always yields the truest paint sheen and in many instances the truest color. A light sanding between coats is always helpful towards achieving a quality end result.
The idea is do the proper preparation and then apply the finish paint with time tested techniques.
