The other difficult part is getting a painting contractor to show up. While this generalization does not apply to every painter, you can rarely get a paint contractor to show up to look at the house and to later produce a written estimate. It's hardly the fault of the painting contractors; it is a combination of the contractors being smaller operations along with a high demand for their work. Home Painters
Painters often tint primer close to the color of the top coat, but Wallis thinks that's a recipe for "holidays," or missed spots. Instead, he tints his primer a contrasting color. "If I can see the color coming through, I know I need to apply more paint," he says. On the cottage shown in this story, he chose a gray-blue primer to go under a peach top coat. House Painting CO
"“From the desk of Nicholas Solimini: Hi Mark, I did get your report card form but thought this letter would be a better way to comment on the job and all the peripherals. I hope this is helpful. INITIAL PRESENTATION Grade: A COMMENTS: I was very impressed with our initial meeting. You were on time, looked professional, had a professional demeanor and exhibited expert knowledge. The information packet you brought over, which included your license and insurance information, was very helpful. Unlike other contractors I called, you were able to give me a quote right at the first meeting which was also very helpful. You were courteous and really seemed to want my business without being pushy or had sell. COLOR SELECTION Grade: A COMMENTS: The color and tone that you initially mentioned was the color I went with and it was perfect for the space, truly perfect. It imparts just enough color and is a nice contrast to the white ceiling and trim. PREPARATION Grade: A COMMENTS: I thought the preparation was done expertly. Your crew took the time to really prep the walls and the ceiling. Based on the condition of the walls to begin with I was impressed by the prep work. CREW Grade: A COMMENTS: I was very impressed with your job foreman. I thought he was very accommodating and very pleasant to deal with. In fact, it was his willingness to come over and sample the colors that led me to choose your color recommendation. I really didn’t get to know the entire crew, as I left the house open while I was at work, but the foreman was excellent! CEILINGS Grade: A COMMENTS: Overall the work on the ceiling, the prep, re-taping and re-popcorn work was nearly outstanding. It looks brand new. I did find one very small area where it looks like a small crack might have returned. This keeps me from giving the full A. But as long as that spot holds the paint I am satisfied. WALLS Grade: A COMMENTS: The walls look marvelous. Again, based on the 22 year age of the house I am very happy with the walls. All the settling cracks were addressed as were any holes or other imperfections. Good job. FINAL THOUGHTS/RECOMMENDATION Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with MDF Painting and was glad that I made the choice to use you. Not only will I use you again, I have already talked to your office about re-painting my den. Your foreman even mentioned getting some samples out to me over the next few weeks and I am looking forward to seeing them and getting that project done. “The inside of my house, for the most part, looks brand new and I am very happy. I would certainly recommend you to any prospective client. I STRONGLY urge anyone who needs painting done to contact you to discuss the project. Please feel free to give my telephone number out to anyone who would like to ask me any questions.”" House Painting
"Just a quick note to let you know what an amazing job your crew is doing on our house… They are a delightful and professional crew and we couldn't be more pleased. As we discussed during our initial meeting, this project was going to require a lot of prep work (as you quoted 60% of our clapboard would be taken down to the bare wood), and they have really stepped up to the task without taking any shortcuts. Their attention to detail, in regard to creating the perfect painting surface that we'd all be happy with, has been stellar, and it goes a long way to showcase the quality and pride in work that MDF guarantees."

As the dance proceeds, keep an eye on the weather. Rain can wash freshly applied latex right off the wall, and a temperature dip below 50 degrees F two days after application can interfere with adhesion and curing and dull the sheen of glossy paints. (Latexes like Sherwin-Williams's Duration and Benjamin Moore's MoorGard Low Lustre are formulated to tolerate temps as low as 35 and 40 degrees, respectively.) House Painting
