Interior painting and decorating can be done year-round, so you don't have to worry about the season. But you need to maintain a temperature that will allow the paint to dry faster. Our team of painters will inspect and offer the most suitable paint for your interior.

What’s the difference between commercial and residential painting?

We offer both commercial and residential decorating services. Commercial painting refers to working on commercial establishments and businesses such as factories, restaurants, or hotels. Residential painting, on the other hand, refers to home and house projects. Compared to a commercial one, residential projects usually require less planning because the size of residential buildings is not as big.

How do we start a painting project?

The first step to painting and decorating job begins with a visit to the site. Our painters will inspect in detail all the rooms or walls and will determine the next step. At this stage, you can ask them all the questions you have about painting such as what paint are they going to use and why. It’s important for you to stay informed as well so that the end result is as closer to your expectations.

Our painters will consult you about the paints that are most suitable for your project – from the brand to their characteristics and which one would be the best for your place. After that, you should make a decision about it.

Painting Step-by-step

The second step to painting and decorating is collecting the furniture and pack it, if necessary, glue the floor and corners, as well as all other things that we do not want to paint. Then, our painters will dismantle the switches, sockets, and lighting fixtures.

Sometimes it is necessary to prime the surface before the paint, and in the presence of larger holes, plaster is applied to achieve absolute smoothness. Primers can strengthen the wall or ones that create a better connection between the old paint and the new one. You can also make a fine putty.

Finally, our painters will apply the paint. This can be done with a bear and a brush or by spraying. For painting in individual rooms, entire apartments, and houses we use a paint roller and a brush, as it is more precise.

Exterior Painting and Decorating Services

As mentioned earlier, the exterior painting and decorating can be complex. The quality of the paint depends a lot on temperatures and weather conditions as well as the exterior material. Not only that but it’s also crucial that the painters and decorators are experienced and know how to determine problems of the exterior. An experienced painter, such as our team of painters and decorators, know that different materials require different painting solutions. Our specialists will determine whether the exterior needs to be repaired before the decorating takes place or whether they need to apply an additional coating to the walls. Our painters will investigate any problems on the exterior and suggest applicable solutions.

Whether you want an interior painting for your own home or for your business, our painters are here to help. It’s optimal to repaint your home every 5-8 years and your office space every 1-3 years. Wherever you choose to get painting and decorating services, our team of painters will do their best to provide the service you need. Our painters will work according to your plan and personal schedule so you don’t lose any time while the painting or repainting is taking place. There are many important factors when it comes to interior painting, and experienced painters know all about them. Our painters will give suggestions on what type of paint – gloss or not, for example – would be best for your place.

Achieving Customer Satisfaction

To achieve the best possible results with our decorating services, there are several important factors to consider: the painting technique, the preparation for painting, the tools used during the painting, and the painter’s skills.

• The painting technique will vary for each brand and product. The drying time is determined by each manufacturer, as well as the recommended tools. Depending on the product, it is determined how, where, and how to apply it, how much to dilute, and how.

• Preparing the surface before painting or decorating is crucial for a good result. A good base is considered to be a smooth, uneven, and absorbent base. If the wall or ceiling is not well plastered and there are gaps, pores, and irregularities, they should be removed with a suitable putty material similar to the base. It is absolutely mandatory that the base before painting with latex and other paints is clean, without dust, without greasy stains and not wet or damp.

• The painting tools are very different and are determined by the material, the painting surface, and the effect you want to achieve. Different paints and products require different types of rollers and brushes for maximum effects, such as paint rollers made of pigskin, sheepskin, fabric, foam, and others.

• And last, but not least, the skills of the painter are an important factor for quality painting. Our painters and decorators respect the manufacturer's recommendations, follow the technology, and, of course, be skilled and have the skills and experience.
