All documents will be included in each estimate that we send to you.
As job sizes vary, so too does the time it takes to complete each job. Estimated time to completion will be included in each estimate and we are willing to work around your schedule for a seamless experience.

In general, paint coatings on exterior stucco or wood siding surfaces can last approximately 5-10 years, however this can vary depending on sun exposure, moisture, condensation, and temperature. There are some buildings we have painted that still look great after 15 years.
Choosing the right color can be tricky - colors look different depending on the environment (lighting, furniture, neighbor's property, etc). Colors are also psychological - they can affect our mood.
We want to help make choosing the right color simple and easy. Since colors on a color deck can appear different from the actual paint, we are happy to apply paint samples in several different environments to assist you in color selection.
Once YOU feel satisfied with a color, we can begin the work.
Paint sheens vary between flat (matte) to glossy. We can apply samples on trims, walls, ceilings, and cabinetry to assist you in your decision.
The following sheens are available:
FLAT: Non reflective, hides imperfections, typically used on walls and ceilings.
SATIN: Slightly reflective, typically used on kitchen and bathroom walls and ceilings.
EGGSHELL: - Slightly more reflective than satin, can easily wipe dirt, stains, or residue off. Typically used in kitchen and bathroom walls, ceilings, and back splashes.
SEMI-GOSS: More reflective than eggshell, most typically used on trims, cabinetry, vanity, railings, and banisters.
GLOSS: This is the shiniest sheen, typically applied where semi-gloss can be used.
Interior projects can be performed any time of the year.
Exterior work however can be best performed during dryer seasons to avoid delays due to rain. Fortunately, Bay Area weather is dry enough to paint most of the year.

INTERIOR PAINTING: Roll only.
