When we go into a customers house, we want the customer to be at ease and know they will be taken care of. When we give the initial estimate, we want to make sure we explain why we cost more than our competition and why we are better.
When we walk into a home to prepare for painting, we find a entrance exit strategy. What is getting painted? We start at the farthest point and move to the exit point. Drop clothes are laid on the ground as we walk through to set up. Hardwood floors are covered for the areas of highest and most traffic. As we move through the house large pieces of furniture get moved to the center of the room. Each switch plate and outlet cover is removed and placed in a secure location. Each piece of trim is wiped down and taped off. Any type of light, thermostat, smoke detector, vent covers, towel bars, or items mounted to the walls are either removed or loosed so we can paint. The walls are sanded to remove burrs dirt or paint drips from a previous paint job. Nail pops are repaired and cracks are fixed.
When we are done painting, we remove the tape, replace outlet covers, look for any drips that may have happened, wipe the flooring down, sweep the floors and vacuum any debris.
The results speak for themselves. There may be cheaper ways but that is not what we at Dfranco Painting and Decorating do.
