Professional Painter Can Remodel Your Kitchen On A Budget

What room is the biggest eyesore in your home? If you said your kitchen, this may be the year you do something about it.

You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to update it and give it a fresh, new look. In fact, if you talk with your professional painter first, you may be amazed at how modern and clean your kitchen can be without taking out another loan for a complete remodel.

Paint The WallsProfessional Painter Can Remodel Your Kitchen On A Budget

Start with a fresh coat of paint in a vibrant, modern color. People stay neutral because they are afraid of color. Yet color can be a great thing when modernizing the look and feel of your kitchen. Head online and look at kitchen remodeling sites to get a good idea of what look you are going for. Browse through magazines and create a folder with your favorites. This will help your painter understand what colors to suggest and to help you choose from.

Drying Times For Interior Latex Paint

Paint The Cabinets

If your kitchen cabinets are still in good shape, just looking a little tired and worn, or perhaps a color or stain right out of the 1980s, a fresh coat of paint can bring them into the current century. Today’s kitchens incorporate color and woods for a design unique to your home. Again, turn to home magazines or online resources for inspiration. Then let your professional painter do their magic.

Painting cabinets is not the same as painting a wall. You need deglossing primers to maintain the paint application. Use proper paints to make sure your cabinets are easy to clean and maintain, taking the abuse of daily use. Make sure you paint the entire cabinet, inside and out for a professional look.

Painted vs Stained Kitchen Cabinets – How Do You Decide?

You can also do little things to add a modern look. If you have recessed panel doors, remove the center panel and insert glass to open the cabinets up. Install new hardware to compliment your theme. Then have fun with other details to bring out the color – how about a glass backsplash to complement the look?

Paint The Countertops

If you’re tired of the old laminate countertops, give them a fresh coat of paint as well. Again, you won’t use regular wall paint for the process, countertops require special paints and sealers to ensure you will be able to use the countertops for normal kitchen functions. By working with a professional, you can choose a variety of color combinations, even have the final look resemble the granite you’ve long desired.

For a fraction of the cost, a little bit of paint and a professional painter is all you’ll need to update your kitchen, and have the room you’ve long desired.

Planning For A Professional Painting Job At Your Commercial Location

Whether your facility is a school, a church, an office building, an apartment building, or a retail location, every maintenance project you face presents its own unique challenges.

If you are planning for a professional paint job in the near future, whether exterior or interior, the more you plan out the logistics before the job, the smoother the project will operate along the way.

Start by working with the occupantsPlanning For A Professional Painting Job At Your Commercial Location

While everyone loves a fresh, clean look, if it inconveniences someone during their busiest time, they may be anything but happy with the results. Start by talking to the occupants first about upcoming events. If it’s a retail location, do they have a large sale in the works? If its an office building, do the tenants have special needs in the coming weeks or months? By asking and getting a consensus first, you will be better able to plan for a time that will provide the least amount of disturbances.

Schedule during quiet hours

If your goal is to paint the interior, scheduling the paint job after working hours and on weekends will cause the least amount of disturbances to the tenants of the building. Likewise with the exterior, if you coordinate starting and stopping times to vary from peak arrival hours of the tenants, the job can run smoother and with fewer disturbances. Above all, keep your tenants informed of the process so they will be more forgiving of the process, knowing the outcome will benefit them as well.

Pick neutral colors

Usually a commercial facility comes pre-established with colors in place. Because most tenants select their furnishings based around the color combination – grays or browns for instance – its wise to stick with the same color pallet overall. That doesn’t mean you can’t go a shade or two lighter or darker, making the look and feel more modern. Yet remember commercial locations are usually meant to blend in and sooth, rather than make a bold statement. Unless you are working directly with the occupant who has a special request, neutral will stand the test of time every time.

Why You Should Only Use A Painting Company That Chooses Low VOC Paint

Thinking of hiring a painting company for your next home improvement project? There are many things to consider as you make your final selection. Professionalism. References. All of this matters when choosing a painting company.

But there may be one thing more that you’ve never considered before.

What type of paint do they use?Why You Should Only Use A Painting Company That Chooses Low VOC Paint

Professional painting companies select and use all kinds of paint. Some choose their paints based on performance. Some based on color. But what about overall impact of the paint?

Paint contains three different types of chemicals: binders, solvents and pigments. The binders provide the ability to adhere to the surface you are painting. The solvents keep the paint liquid until its applied. And the pigments give the paint the color you desire.

Though all types of paints contain these three chemicals, not all paints are the same. In some cases, the paint manufacturer concerns itself more with profits and output rather that what goes in the paint. In which case the paint will contain more of the dangerous chemicals we are now finding out affect us in a variety of ways. These paints will contain higher concentrations of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which can harm us in a variety of ways.

Health Problems

Most VOCs are found in the solvents. Solvents are the part of the paint that keep it liquid for application and allow it to dry quickly once its applied. When paint is applied to the interior of your space, the VOCs will become a part of your indoor air quality as this process takes place. Which means it can contaminate that air not just for the short term, but in some cases for extended periods of time. Yes, that fresh paint smell might not be so good after all. VOCs have been known to cause a variety of health concerns, including respiratory problems. Low VOC paints use alternative solvents, often water based, which means they have lower concentrations of toxic chemicals. By choosing a company that uses low VOCs, you are safeguarding the health of your family or your employees.

Environmental Problems

Painting the exterior of your home or building still has its own repercussions. Depending on the size of your structure, the paint you use will still off-gas during the drying process. High VOCs will enter our environment during the painting process and often for years to come. We also face many environmental problems when paints are disposed of improperly. Imagine paint buckets with high VOCs continually contaminating both the air and water supplies as it sits leaking in a landfill.

Now that we are aware of the potential problems and damage high VOCs cause our world, why choose a paint company that uses anything but low VOC paint? If you hire us, you’ll be hiring a company that always chooses the lowest VOC paints, and cares equally about the footprint we leave in our environment.

Tips From A Commercial Painting Contractor

Do you have a commercial location in need of paint? When you call in a commercial painting contractor, they can help you with a lot more than just a coat of paint. They can help you:

  • Cover your area with anti-graffiti and an anti-pollutant finishTips From A Commercial Painting Contractor
  • Provide textured coatings
  • Provide fire resistant coatings
  • Use low VOC paints and finishes
  • Diamond grinding or acid etching for prep to protect against grease and chemicals
  • Provide floor coatings, including epoxies, polyurethane and anti-slip coatings
  • Provide thermal reflective coatings for insulation

Because some of these chemicals are toxic when applied, using a commercial painting contractor will ensure they know what they are doing and how to apply to product safely for you and your environment. They also understand they are working in a public place in many cases, and will take the appropriate precaution against exposing the public to dangerous particles and fumes.

Because commercial painting contractors typically work with a variety of different products, its important to hire an expert that has the experience working with commercial locations. You don’t want your building or property to be the first for an inexperienced painter trying to make his way into the business.

In order to choose a contractor, follow the standard rules when finding and hiring a company.

1. Choose at least three companies and ask for quotes

2. Check their qualifications, including experience, licensing, insurance, and how active they are in the community

3. Get references

In some fields – plumbing or electricians for example – a license is required in order to do business. That isn’t the case here in Colorado when it comes to painting. Painters are required to get the standard business permits, but it is possible to find unlicensed painters working out of the back of a truck, low-balling a bid to earn a few extra dollars on the side. That’s a big risk for anyone spending days on a commercial job site, or working with hazardous materials. A licensed commercial painting contractor is someone who takes their business and reputation seriously, and will make sure you receive a quality job at a fair price.

Using Epoxy Floor Coating For Your Industrial Operation

When it comes to your industrial or commercial operation, some things have to be done the right way the first time. Your floors, for instance, will be in constant use once your operation gets underway. Finding the downtime to carry out floor repairs will cost you in time, money and efficiency.

One of the best choices for floor coverings is an epoxy coating. Epoxy coatings were developed to toughen the flooring and make it more durable. Its an obvious choice when protecting the floor and making it safe for employees and customers alike.Using Epoxy Floor Coating For Your Industrial Operation

Epoxy coatings are suitable for concrete and metal flooring types, and have been used in all kinds of business operations: manufacturing plants, warehouses, healthcare facilities, airline hangars, auto dealer showroom floors, and garage bays.

Epoxy floor coatings are painted on in liquid format which hardens into a new surface material over the old one. The old concrete or metal is the base, so it needs to be clean from dirt and grime, and repaired so large chips or cracks won’t impact the final results.

What makes it so powerful?

Its resistant to liquid spills. Industrial flooring is often subjected to a lot of foot traffic and a variety of spills. Epoxy flooring is resistant to liquid spills and will prevent seepage into the floor material, while maintaining its original finish. If you’re used to the qualities of concrete, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in a floor coated with epoxy.

It protects from abrasion. As an industrial operation, you probably have a variety of heavy equipment in use every day. Epoxy coatings help protect the floor from damage produced by equipment and machinery.

Its easy to clean. Since epoxy coatings are resistant to water, chemicals, oil, grease and other solvents, you’ll find it much easier to clean than a traditional flooring surface. Dirt can easily be mopped away. For tougher stains, a soft cleaning solution will remove most spills. Meaning your facility costs will go down because you won’t have to replace the flooring or have major cleaning on a regular basis.
