How To Get The Right Paint Color, Madison Ct

Picking a color for  your home can be very difficult, but it doesn’t have to be!  There are ways to ensure that you have done everything you can to make sure that the color or colors you pick are right for you!

The first thing to do is go to your local paint store and carefully check out the paint charts.  They have colors that you can pick individually or a bunch of colors in one chart. I like to pick the individual square’s or strips that have 1-4 colors, take the colors home and pin them to the wall.  Watch the chip throughout the day because the different light througout the day will make the color change a little. http://youtu.be/AqGyirzQnlE

After you pick the colors, you can go back to the store and get a pint of the color and a little sponge stick to take home and put an actual paint sample on the wall.  Let it sit for a week to see how it looks and to make sure you like it.

I hope this article How To Get The Right Paint Color Madison Ct was helpful, if you have any questions please feel free to call us!

College Pro Painters NOT a good deal! Madison Ct

I have been a painting contractor in Connecticut for over 37 years.  It takes years to become a skilled professional painter.  College Pro Painters is actually an oxymoron!  How can you be a professional painter at a college age?  I am all for young college age adults trying to earn money in the summers between college years, I had two college age children and my son helped me in my business, but he was not a professional painter!

College Pro Painters are not lead certified, the company is lead certified, but each individual painter is not, they work under the College Pro’s umbrella.  Lead certification is very serious and important!  You have to go to classes and be taught how to test for it and when you find it how to take care of lead in the proper way!

This is only one instance of being a professional!  When you hire an established company, you should be able to call them after the job is done and talk with the person you hired.  College Pro painters are not like that.  The employee turnover is huge.

But the most important thing is to hire someone that is experienced and knows what they are doing and they do a beautiful professional job!  It takes skill and patience!

I hope this article College Pro Painters NOT a good deal! Madison Ct was helpful. You can call us for  any type of professional advice, we are happy to help!

Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct

Hi everyone!  We get a lot of calls asking if we do window glazing, and that’s why we created this blog Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct. Yes, we do!

Window glazing is kind of a lost art, but it is an art and takes know how and skill!  Glazing compound holds the window in place (especially older windows) and keeps weather out!

Basically you remove the old glazing compound which can get hard as a rock, crack and have pieces fall out.  Then you remove old putty.  There is a process to the removal and re-installation of the new glazing compound and putty.  So, I hope this article Window Glazing and Painting Branford Ct helped!

We have been painting in Branford Ct for over 37 years! We also cover Guilford Ct, Madison Ct and all the way up the shoreline!

If you have any questions at all on how this process works, please call us! We are very happy to talk to you and give you all the information you need!  Even if you don’t plan on using our company for your painting needs, please call, we will guide you through the process!dave's photo

PAINTING KITCHEN CABINETS, PAINTERS IN GUILFORD CT

Painting your kitchen cabinets is a great way to give the entire kitchen a fresh, brand new look without breaking the bank! This is why we posted this article PAINTING KITCHEN CABINETS, PAINTERS IN GUILFORD CT to give you some tips about it.

First thing is to clean the cabinets inside and out using a gentle solution like TSP.  You want to make sure there is no dirt, dust and grease on the cabinets.  Let them dry out thoroughly.

Next, you want to protect areas that are not getting painted, so tape some Rosin paper over the counter tops and floor.  You can also tape plastic sheeting over the back splashes and windows if needed.   You will also need a work table for  the doors, drawers and shelves.

Remove the cabinets from the  frames, remove all the hardware.  Put hardware in safe place.  Place the cabinet doors on your work table.  Note:  Be sure to have a window or crack a door in the kitchen to allow fresh outside air inside.

Now, scrub all the face frames, the drawer fronts, doors and shelves with an abrasive pad that has liquid de-glosser on it.  Make sure that you have papers underneath to catch any extra liquid that will drip.  Before it dries, wipe away the residue with a clean de-glosser dampened rage.

If you are moving where the hardware is going to be put back on the doors and drawers, be sure to fill the holes with a two part polyester wood or autobody filler. It dries in pretty quick so make small batches of it. After it dries, you will need to scrape off any excess and then gently sand it so it’s flush with the wood surface.   Next sand all the surfaces using a 100 grit paper.  Make sure to dust off the dust, you can also use a tack cloth.

Choose a high quality primer, such as a oil based primer, they are good for maple, cherry or man made materials.  Use a good quality nylon-polyester brush.  Give it a good day to dry.  Sand the surfaces again using a orbit sander, 220 grit paper. It should be very smooth when you are done.

Next, you want to caulk any open seams using latex caulk.  After applying the caulk, smooth the seam with  a damp finger.  Fill any scratches, dents or dings using a vinyl spackle and smooth it flat with a putty knife.   After it dries, sand again.  Vacuum and clean all surfaces.

Working from top to bottom start painting across the grain.  Sand all the surfaces after the first coat dries with a 280 grit paper.  Vacuum and clean again.  Use a brand new brush for the final coat.  When it dries, you can hang everything back up!

PICKING A PAINTER GUILFORD CT

I am writing this article PICKING A PAINTER GUILFORD CT to help give you some guidelines on what to look for in a painter!  Here are a few basics:

1. Make sure they are fully insured with workers compensation insurance 2. Liability insurance 3. commercial auto insurance

2. They must be licensed in the state of Connecticut through the Department of Consumer Protection.  You can go on their website to look up a company name to make sure they hold a current license. They are also suppose to carry a small wallet size card from the state with their license name and number on it.

3.  They must have a lead license.  There are no exceptions to this, this is a serious safety issue!

4. Get a few references, ask where they buy their paint, you can call the paint store to check them out as well!

5. How long have they been in business? This is important!  Will they be around if you need to call them a year down the road?

Another important consideration is time.  How long did it take for them to return your call for an estimate?  How long does it take to get a fully written detailed estimate from them after they meet with you?  The state has guidelines that contractors must follow in their estimates.  They must specify the dollar value of course, and also when they will start the job and how long it will take.  They need their license number on the estimate.  Do they have an office?  Do they have a website that gives you more information about their company?  How about a cell phone number and email?    Some things are not required by the state like a website, but it shows their professionalism and effort to make sure it’s easy to reach them and to give you valuable informaton!  Our website has a blog that we add to everyday with informative articles to educate you about different topics.  We paint houses in Guilford Ct and Madison Ct as well as other neighboring towns!

Guilford Savings Bank Review, Guilford Ct

I have been a painting contractor in Guilford Ct for many years, and I am familiar with a lot of the local businesses here in Guilford Ct.  As a business owner I would like to share my opinion about our local bank here, Guilford Savings Bank, and this is why I wrote this article Guilford Savings Bank Review, Guilford Ct 

Guilford Savings Bank, Guilford Ct has been serving our town for 138 years!  They have branched out to other towns such as Old Saybrook Ct, Madison Ct, Branford Ct.  I have been a personal and business customer for over 9 years.  I used to bank at the large nationwide banks and although I had all kinds of great access and all the bells and whistles technology could provide to my account through my laptop, ipad and iphone, when there was a problem or I needed personal attention the big bank was sorely lacking.

I remember one christmas when my wife and I went to our large big nationwide bank to withdraw cash for our christmas shopping that day and found that our deposit we made two days earlier was missing!  Not only was it missing, it wasn’t even recorded at all!  Luckily my wife had her deposit slip in her wallet to prove the transaction took place, but unfortunately we had no access to that money until a different department that was not even in our state could look into it, which didn’t happen and get resolved for another three business days!

Last year, I had a situation where my checking account was hacked into through my visa debit card, over 338.00 dollars was taken!  I noticed this on a saturday!  I called the bank and not only did I get a person, it was resolved right away!

I am writing this article Guilford Savings Bank Review, Guilford Ct to share this information with the public because as a business owner and a private customer, I know the value of a good local bank. When I walk in the bank I am greeted by everyone!  They know my first name!  I am taken care of quickly, there are always a lot of tellers ready and waiting!  If you have a problem or issue, their main goal is to make sure you are happy with the end result.

If you have any questions or would like to talk to me about this article, please feel free to contact me, my email, phone and website are below.  Hope this article is helpful!

I highly recommend Guilford Savings Bank, Guilford Ct
