House Painting in NJ:
Our Process

When doing painting in NJ homes, we feel there are certain steps that must be completed every time for the best results, even though every project is different.

So here we want to share with you just a generic overview of the process we use for painting New Jersey houses inside and out.

Depending on the surface to be painted (stucco, wood, aluminum, vinyl, popcorn, etc.), some of the steps will vary, and we will explain to you all the specifics of your particular NJ painting project during our meeting (also, your contract will have all the details).

General guidelines for home painting in NJ:

  • Our painters will typically start work between 7:30am and 8:30am

  • Our typical work day is 8 hours

  • We typically work in consecutive days

  • Our crews typically consist of 2-3 people

  • All work is done from top to bottom, one wall/room at a time

  • Our workers will clean up after themselves daily

  • In lived-in spaces, furniture will be put back close to its original position at the end of each day

  • All materials and equipment will be kept on the project, organized in a staging area

Before we start painting New Jersey homes:

  • After the contract is signed and a few days before the determined start date, we will contact you to get information about the colors you want to use on your project.

  • If you are still unsure about the selected colors, let us know and we will come and apply them to the wall in a small test patch area to help you decide.

  • We will discuss with you the work sequence and daily schedule, and determine the place for our staging area.
