When it comes to interior painting, we are much more than your average house painters. In addition to the standard interior painting, we do staining, stain removal, dry wall repairs, texture wall and ceiling repairs. We also do both finishing and rough carpentry. Truly, your one stop finishing shop.
We specialize in difficult interior jobs where access and traffic can be a challenge. This is quite common in the industry we serve: multi-unit residential complexes, hi-rise buildings, warehouses, commercial facilities and institutions.
To achieve consistent high quality, we have adopted the PDCA painting procedures:
Standardized Painting Procedures (SPPs) are derived from PDCA’s Craftsmanship Operating Procedures (COPs) , which were developed by a committee from the PDCA Craftsmanship Forum, and are nationally accepted standards for executing the painting.
Our craftsmen are fully trained in the use of our SPPs. All our employees, from junior to the most senior, are trained in using the same procedures to execute the painting work.
As a result of using SPPs, our customers experience no re-dos, uniform quality, predictable results and long term performance.
The focus of our interior painting projects is the long-term performance, ease of maintenance and great color coordination.
We are experienced in repairing and repainting all interior surfaces, including drywall, wood, plaster, brick, stone, and concrete. We are also very good with all types of textured surfaces, including both repair work and installation of new texture.
The following are the steps of a typical interior painting project. By following this procedure, we can ensure the smooth completion of your interior painting job.
A) Sample approval
For most interior projects, once you have short-listed the colour choices, we will present to you draw-downs (usually 8” x 11” size) of the colors for approval and signatures. If the draw-down is not enough, large painted samples on the wall (4’ x 6’ or bigger) can be provided for further comparison.
B) Protection of surroundings
We will cover or mask surfaces that are nearby and are not to be painted, such as rugs, furniture, and personal items.
Outlet plates, vent covers, and other such hardware will be removed and reinstalled after painting.
C) Preparation of the surfaces and application of coatings.
This typically involves the following:
- Filling and repairing any nicks, gouges, cuts, nail holes, etc.
- Removing other surface contaminates, such as tapes, waxes and dirt
- Applying stain blockers to the stained areas
- Applying first coat of the chosen coating
- After the first coat has dried, checking the coating walls again for any deficiencies
- Sanding the wall surface again, if required
- Applying the second coat
- Checking the cutting line making sure the line is clean, straight and has solid coverage
- Checking the overall appearance of the finished surfaces, making sure the colour is rich and vibrant, with no see-through spots or uneven areas
D) Site cleaning
The job site will be cleaned daily, before the end of the shift. We will keep the premises free of any unnecessary accumulation of tools, equipment, supplies, material, debris, and such.
If the areas are occupied by the residents, each day the job site will be left in the same condition at the end of each working day that it was in at the start of the working day. A thorough clean-up will be done at the end of the entire project.
