We’ll walk with you through and around your home to review every detail. We’ll tell you upfront if certain areas or requirements will affect our labor (and cost), offer alternatives gleaned from our knowledge and experience, and discuss all your options. This way you can make informed decisions based on your dreams—and your budget.
We’ll handle all legal documentation needed for the job beforehand. And during the job, I’ll meet with my staff on-site, every day to ensure that your project runs smoothly.
The result will be a beautiful coating that’s easy to maintain and is there for you to enjoy for many years to come.
Anyone can paint. Finglas refines. If you want your home to go beyond the ordinary, or you simply seek true craftsmanship at an extraordinary value, we’re the professionals you need.
The Finglas team will spend two to four days on an average-size room. Our process:
Preparing the space. Proper prep is critical to every project. With drywall, we remove all furniture from the room—not just tent it in the middle. This protects your home against dust and splatter that can get everywhere.
* We remove artwork but require that you re-hang it to your specifications.
Priming the walls and trim. Good “starts” make great finishes. The right coat means the right seal. We use an alcohol or alkyd primer to provide a solid, even base that seals, stains to ensure that the topcoats of paint will apply smoothly and bond securely to surfaces. We stay away from the latex that DIY’ers (and many general contractors) typically get in big-box stores.
Applying the color. Better paint pays off. We recommend using high-quality paints and finishes, which offer the best value for the money due to better pigments, resins and additives, along with fewer solvents, than typically cheaper paints. The result is superior coverage, protection, and durability. For trim, we use latex or environment-friendly, low-VOC oil-based paint systems.
Drying and finishing. To ensure the paint remains and no unwanted marks are left when the tape is removed—especially from baseboards and trim—we take the extra time to first score it with a utility knife.
