If you’re about to have the interior of your home or building painted, then you may have a few questions about what to expect and how to prepare. We’ve cataloged a few of our most frequently asked questions and their answers, in order to clear up any of those questions that you may have. And, if you’re still curious about the services that we provide, feel free to reach out to us, we’d be happy to answer your questions!
Most home interior projects can be completed within a day, and even large interiors can be completed within a day or two. For large commercial spaces, painting may take several days, and we’d be happy to provide you with a timeline estimate for your project.
There are a few things you can do for us to prepare your space for painting. First of all, take down any paintings, artwork, and other wall hangings that will be in the way. We recommend that you store these items safely in another room for the time being. You should also remove rugs and curtains that are scattered throughout your spaces.
Next, we’d appreciate it if you could move any furniture that can get in the way while we’re moving through your home. For example, if you have a couch that is resting against a wall that is about to be painted, you can move it to a different room or to the center of the room, where it can be covered and kept out of the way. Also, we would appreciate it if you made it easy to enter your home to get to the surfaces that we’re going to paint — so you may want to move vehicles that are in the driveway, furniture in your entryway, and other obstructions that might be inconvenient.
Finally, you should make plans for kids, pets, and yourself. While we’re at your home, it will be easiest and most convenient to paint your space without any distractions. For example, we can paint your home while you’re away at work and the kids are at school, so that we can complete the job more efficiently.
If you’re curious about other ways that you can prepare for your upcoming interior painting project, don’t hesitate to reach out to us, we’d be happy to give you a checklist of tasks that you can complete before we show up.
Yes, we can use specialized paint that is more resistant to damage that can be caused by a high-moisture environment for your bathroom. These paints are less likely to crack or warp when there is steam in the air, making them ideal for bathroom interiors. Take note, however, that mold and mildew may still grow on these surfaces, so you’ll want to clean them from time to time.
Absolutely. If you need to color match a certain paint color that you already have throughout your home, we can help. We’ll take a sample from your wall (we may take a small chip of paint), and we’ll analyze that sample to create a mixture that perfectly matches its color. Then, of course, we can apply that paint on your walls to give them a contiguous look.
Yes. Here at Horner Painting, we can provide minor wall repairs to fix any blemishes on the surfaces of your walls before we apply paint. We can fill in small holes, patch cracks, and perform similar minor repairs. However, we do not provide full drywall installation services, only some drywall repairs. If you’re curious whether or not we can patch up any areas in your home, simply give us a call.
Yes. We can paint and finish all sorts of surfaces in your home. We work with wood surfaces, plaster walls, walls that have wallpaper on them, textured walls, brick, cement, concrete, and other surfaces that can hold paint. If you’re curious about a surface in your space, just reach out to us. We can let you know whether or not we can paint your surface, and we can tell you about appropriate paint types for those surfaces.
While your paint will be dry to the touch shortly after it is applied, you should still wait a couple of weeks before you clean any surfaces that have been painted. Wait two weeks to clean any of these surfaces. At this point, you can use a detergent that is designed to clean painted surfaces. Simply follow the directions on the packaging of the product. Do not use abrasive cleaning tools — only use soft sponges or cloths to clean your surfaces.
