Here's what to expect:

Furniture, floors, and carpets will be protected from start to finish by drop cloths, paper or plastic if needed.

Wood surfaces to be painted will be washed with a mild detergent or solvent to remove dirt, grease, mildew, soap, or oil film that may have accumulated.

Water marks, smoke stains, pen marks, and other blemishes that could bleed through the new paint will be primed and sealed.

Loose paint or other imperfections on walls or ceilings will be removed by scraping and sanding.

Cracks and holes will be repaired with spackle or drywall compound, sanded, and primed. Mesh tape may be applied over cracks.

Open joints and gaps between different surfaces will be caulked and filled for a cleaner, more finished appearance.

Glossy surfaces will be dulled by sanding or undercoating to ensure proper paint adhesion.

Only quality materials that offer the best results will be used.

Waste materials, by-products, and used solvents will be disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.

Touch-up paint will be left in labeled containers for your future convenience.
