Is there anything I should do to prepare for my painting project?

Yes. For a more thorough answer, you can review our Customer To Do page. Chism Brothers Painting will do whatever we can to make this process as simple and worry-free as possible.

How do you handle window treatments, light fixtures and technology equipment when painting the inside of a home?

This is a great question. Our painters typically will remove and reinstall door hardware, electrical outlet covers and simple light fixtures. As we are not electricians, we cannot always guarantee or troubleshoot if a light fixture does not work after it is reinstalled. Sometimes we've removed a fixture that is on its last legs and when we go to reinstall it, it does not work. We will do our very best to remove/reinstall things on your home as we found them. We just cannot be held responsible for things like computer equipment, electrical systems and window treatments. In most cases, we can move most pieces of furniture. If the items are too heavy, the estimator or crew leader will let you know before we start the project (i.e. piano, king size bed set). If an item needs to be disassembled and reassembled by another company, we will let you know.

Is there a difference between Repainting and Restoration Work?

Yes. Restoration generally involves complete paint removal and thorough surface repair or replacement. Repainting is the cost effective process of adequately preparing and finishing existing surfaces but which will not necessarily result in a “like new” finished product.

Can references be provided?

Yes. Your Estimator or the Office Staff can provide you with references from projects within your area.

Do you offer any other services?

portfolio. We have also developed a list of qualified, proven home and landscape contractors with which we confidently do business with and can refer to you.

Can color choices affect the project?

Yes. Multiple colors schemes and placement may increase the time and cost of your project. Your Estimator can assist you with your choices of colors and placements.

What kind of paint will be used?

We use the major paint suppliers and have found that each company has different products that work better for specific applications. If you have a favorite brand/product, please discuss this with your Estimator.

Do you leave extra paint when complete, and what do I do with my old paint cans?

Yes. We leave you with any extra paint and make sure the cans are properly labeled. We also leave you with a full color and material schedule. We keep a copy at our office as well. Regarding old paint that you have, we can remove them for you at a cost of $10 per gallon.
