With painting, there are a lot of variables to consider and all painting projects are unique! We have skilled Estimators who will discuss your goals and measure the project in order to provide you with a free, detailed price quote.

Depending on the size of the house and the condition of the surface to be painted, we can give you an idea during the estimate of how long the project will take. Home owners should plan on approximately 5 working days for the average-sized home. We are capable of painting nearly any exterior surface, including wood, siding, brick, trim, shutters, front doors, garage doors, and more!

On the project start date, the painters will move all furniture to the center of the room and cover it with painter’s plastic, unless it is heavy furniture (refrigerator, etc.) or fragile/heirloom items. We ask that you clear the room of small, personal items before we arrive to speed up the process.

If you live in an area with extreme weather – such as snow, rain, or heat – then chances are you will start to see signs of wear and tear on your paint finishes every 5-7 years. Factors such as paint type, application process, and surface will also come into play. Once you start seeing signs of wear, it is important to repaint to protect your home’s structure.

Interior painting projects can be completed year-round, thanks to low and no VOC paint options. These eco-friendly products have little to no “paint smell”, which means painting indoors is safer than it had been in the past. For exterior projects, timing often depends on Mother Nature. The ideal temperature for outdoor painting with latex is between 50-70 degrees Fahrenheit and 45-90 degrees Fahrenheit for oil-based paints. In the Spring and Fall, consider paints that can be applied as low as 35 degrees but watch for the dew point that can cause the painted surface to become wet overnight. The surface should also be completely dry and free of debris before any coatings are applied.

From our experience, homeowners who have cabinets that are in good shape but are perhaps dark or outdated in appearance are thrilled with the results of our cabinet painting services! Typical cabinet painting is about one-third the cost of replacing cabinets, plus the process is much quicker and less disruptive to your living space. Our painting contractors can paint or refinish kitchen cabinets, islands, built-in display units, bathroom vanities, closet shelves, and more!

You can schedule the date and time for an estimate using the calendar on our website: fivestarpainting.com/schedule-estimate. The process typically takes 60 minutes, during which time we will measure the project and present the estimate for your consideration.

Yes, wallpaper removal is a popular service, especially now since many homeowners are purchasing fixer-uppers in need of updating. Our skilled painting contractors will take the time to cautiously remove the wallpaper to avoid damaging the drywall underneath, then follow proper steps to texture and prime the walls before painting.

There are benefits to each, so this is a personal decision for each homeowner. Small painting projects are often easy to manage and can be knocked out quickly and proficiently by a homeowner. However, when the project gets more complex - such as texturing, drywall repair, wood rot replacement, high ceilings, etc. - it can save a lot of time, headache, and potential expense by hiring a professional.

Five Star Painting has years of experience and a variety of experts who we can call on when you are undecided about the paint color(s) for your project. You can check out the photo gallery on our website or our Pinterest page for inspiration!
