If you’re looking for a professional painting company in Raleigh, NC, chances are you’ll have plenty of questions to ask. At Triangle Pro Painting our entire business wants you to be comfortable asking any question that may arise. That’s why we put together some of our most commonly asked questions for you!
A: The interior of your home typically doesn’t need painting as often as the exterior. However, some walls in your home need to be repainted more frequently than others due to daily wear and tear. Follow these simple painting frequency rules to keep your paint looking fresh in every space and on every surface inside your house.
Living Room & Dining Room: You will want to paint your house interior every 5 to 7 years. This frequency generally does the trick for both of these rooms.
Kitchen & Bathroom: You will likely notice that your kitchen and bathroom will need fresh paint every 3 to 4 years, sometimes longer.
Bedrooms: Kids’ bedrooms usually need repainted every 2 to 3 years. Adult bedrooms are less frequently used and can last longer from 3 to 4 years.
Hallways: Have professional painters paint these spaces every 2 to 3 years to keep your paint looking fresh and new.
A: Generally, ceiling paint thrives for about twice as long as vertical wall paint. This means that you will typically only have to paint your ceilings every 10 years or so.
A: High quality, Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore. If you prefer another brand, we can use the products of your choice.
A: High quality paint has more pigment and resin, and though it may look the same as the low quality paint, there are big differences in the ingredients and in long-term performance.
A: It depends on the current condition of the substrate and the colors being painted. If we are doing a color match and the substrate is in good condition, one coat will usually suffice. If we are doing a drastic color change, for example white to black, two or three coats may be required to cover properly. We have some of the best painting contractors that can help you make the right decision. Triangle Pro Painting will always recommend the appropriate number of coats for your project, guaranteed.
A: Would it be an additional cost? Yes, it is ultimately the homeowner’s responsibility for any color choices, and there is an additional cost for a color change. The additional cost is determined by how much of the job is completed, along with the cost of the additional paint.
A: The air, the surface and the paint should all be at the manufacturer’s recommended temperature, which is usually above 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
A: You will need to remove any small items from the tops of shelves and pictures from your wall. We can move the larger items towards the center of the room and properly cover and protect furniture/items.
