A. We recommend using paint with an eggshell finish on interior walls. On exterior trim work, we recommend using a satin finish. This provides the wash ability and durability that a totally flat finish does not.
B. If the color selection of a client is extremely light (no strength) or extremely dark (excessive tint) there may be a need to consider applying another coat of paint for complete coverage. If an additional coat is recommended, it will be discussed with the customer prior to application.
C. Reputable contractors will encourage the use of a written contract. This contract should clearly explain the scope of the work to be performed. It should also cover such items as surfaces to be painted, methods, extent of surface preparation and payment procedures. Knowing the total scope of the work enables you to carefully evaluate the different bids you may receive with the proper information and keep them on a level playing field. The contract serves to protect both you and the contractor.
