    Painting Contractor FAQs

    Painting is a relatively large project to tackle. We understand if you have questions regarding your painting project. We have answered a handful of commonly asked questions below.

    How long does it take for interior paint to dry?
    It depends on the type of paint being applied. Oil-based paints take 6 to 8 hours to dry, but another coat cannot be applied until after 24 hours. On the other hand, latex paints dry much faster in about an hour. However, you must way at least 4 hours before applying another coat.

    It is important to note that other factors impact the drying time of the paint. Humidity, ventilation, surface texture, and method of application can all affect drying time.

    How do you decide what color to use for my painting project?
    Our designers and contractors work directly with you to find the color and shade that fits your personal tastes and the home’s style. We never move forward without your approval, so the paint we apply to your home is the paint you selected.
    How long does exterior paint last?
    Your exterior paint can last anywhere between 5 to 10 years depending on the paint brand and quality. The type of surface and the surrounding climate greatly impact the lifespan of your exterior paint.
    Is there anything I must do to prepare for the painting project?
    We ask you to remove artwork, picture frames, and other decorations from the walls for interior painting projects. Please remove curtains, blinds, and shades from the windows. Finally, remove furniture from the room or, at the very least, place it at the center of the room.

    For exterior painting projects, we ask you to remove any items that may be leaning up against the side of your house.

    How long does it take to complete a painting project?
    Our team strives to complete a painting project in one or two days. We may need more time in very rare cases, but you can expect your project to be completed on the same day or the very next.
    Do I or someone else need to be home during the painting project?

    Yes. We require at least one person to be home during the painting project. This is especially important for completing interior paint projects.

    Is primer always needed for painting?

    No. Primer is not always necessary for paint jobs. Primer is best suited for the following situations:

    • Transitioning from a darker color to a lighter color
    • Stained surface
    • Glossy surface
    • Porous surface
    • After walls have been repaired
    • Humid areas
