Yes – The cost of premium paint from Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin Moore is included. Other paint brands may be used upon request. There may be additional costs for ultra premium brands like Fine Paints of Europe.

For doors, only the side of the door facing into the room is included, unless noted otherwise. 

One color ceiling and trim paint is included. The estimate includes only one wall color per room, unless accent walls are listed. 

It is best to have colors picked out a week in advance of the projects.

Typical work day starts by 7 or 8 am and finishes up by 3 or 4 pm. 

We’ll handle moving the furniture and big stuff. We would greatly appreciate it if you could put away all smaller items and take down wall decorations. Time Saver Discounts available for having all rooms emptied and/or completely setup for painting. 

Please let us know if you’d like to keep curtains, blinds and wall decorations in the same place or we can remove the screws and nails to patch over any holes.


New Colors: All repaired areas will be primed prior to painting. After priming, 2 coats of paint will be used to ensure a high quality even finish that will last for years. 

Same Color & Sheen: When freshening up the same color and sheen, a single coat of high quality paint may be used to restore the original color and finish.

We prefer to use Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore brand paint. If a color from a different manufacturer is preferred, it can be matched or we can use that brand.

Almost all ceilings are painted with a stock white ceiling paint that has a flat finish. Our preferred brand is Sherwin-Williams Promar Ceiling paint as it provides great coverage and touches up well if needed. NOTE:  A matte or satin finish may be needed in bathrooms that do not have a fan to remove moisture.

Walls in living areas are typically painted in a flat or matte finish. Our preferred wall paint is Emerald premium paint from Sherwin-Williams. Kitchens and bathrooms walls may require a matte or satin finish that is more stain and moisture resistant.

Almost all interior doors, windows and other trim is painted with a semigloss finish. Semigloss has sheen (shine) that makes it easy to clean and holds up best in areas that will be touched often like doors. 

Patch and Paint Pros Preferred Paints

Eggshell and Satin are somewhat interchangeable “mid-sheens” depending on which brand you use. Satin paint Sherwin-Williams has a little more shine (gloss) than the Eggshell.

Satin finish can also be used if you really like shiny walls. But, satin paint should really only be used in areas that may get dirty often and bathrooms as it is more stain resistant and cleanable than a matte or flat finish.

Yes – Additional repair work may be required when painting the walls with a satin finish as it can highlight minor imperfections and uneveness of ceilings and walls.

The ceilings should be flat throughout most of the house. Some say satin or semi-gloss for bathrooms, but this is not necessary.

Simple answer….Yes it can, but it should not be painted over.

Detailed Answer – Wallpaper is tricky situation.  Once wallpaper has already been painted over, go ahead and paint it. But note, the wallpaper will eventually fail some day and cause future removal to be much more difficult. 

NOTE: A reason wallpaper may peel in the future is when there is a moisture issue from inside the walls or ceiling. If that is the case, it may be time to call roofer or plumber.

  • Painted – If the wallpaper has already been painted, the damage has been done. We can skim the lines and repaint to make it look smooth. Should not have any issues unless there is a moisture issue from inside the wall. 
  • Unpainted – If the paper has not been painted over, it is best to just remove it. The process of skimming every seam, oil priming and then painting over takes almost as much time as just removing the non-painted wallpaper.
  • Closets – This is the one space of the house, that should not be a deal breaker for a potential buyer. This future project could likely be passed on to the next buyer. Who knows, they may even like the “character” it adds to the house.

If a water stain is present or the paint has begun to peel, use a pencil to outline the edge of the stain or peeling area. If the stain or damage grows beyond your pencil line, you likely have an ongoing problem. 

Failing stucco, cracked brick mortar and old window seals can be the likely cause of blistering or peeling paint on exterior walls of the house. Water damage on interior walls is likely from plumbing above or roof leaks.

The key to prevent peeling in a room with lots of moisture is priming and two coats of high quality paint. This insures waterproof barrier between the drywall and the moisture in the bathroom.

Yes – We can remove popcorn ceilings if the ceiling has not been painted. Once popcorn has been painted, it is more cost effective to drywall over the popcorn ceiling.

Popcorn ceilings can be scraped or drywall over for a new smooth ceiling in 2–3 days. Popcorn ceiling removal and painting would be 3-5 days typically depending on the size of the room.

Yes (ideally) – It is best to completely empty a room of furniture and belongings prior to starting the project. Popcorn ceiling removal, skimming and drywall skimming is a messy process that requires easy access to every square foot of the ceiling.

When required, we can move around larger furniture and keep them covered throughout the project. Please be aware that this slows down a project and may require additional charges.

Yes – Our crew will wear N95 respirators when sanding and removing popcorn ceilings.
