Here are some common questions we get about the painting process:

What colors are the best and why?

Simply put, color affects mood. Red, yellow and orange are considered the warm colors, which incite happy, excitable moods and stimulation. That makes these colors popular in many offices. Blue, green and purple are called the cool colors because they're relaxing and peaceful. These colors are popular in bedrooms and dens. The light colors, like beige and any off-white, create a feeling of spaciousness. These colors are perfect for something like a doctor's office.

Dark colors can make a room seem smaller and are widely considered depressing. Bold colors are often appealing, and white colors reflect light. However, beware because white can look dirty more easily.

Can I clean the newly painted wall?

Don't do anything for at least two or three weeks. When you do clean it, make sure you use a cleaner that won't damage your paint. Read all the directions on the cleaner's label and make sure it is properly diluted. Start by cleaning on a small unnoticeable area to get an idea of how it works.

Does it matter what type of brush I use?

Absolutely. Not only does it matter what type and size brush you use, but it even matters if you use a brush at all. In many cases, not only is using a roller or a sprayer easier, but it will provide better results than a brush, which can drip or blotch. Frankly, it depends on the thickness of the paint, the texture of the surface and even the weather.

Can I paint over my vinyl siding or do I have to take it all down?

Yes, you can paint over vinyl siding. Not only is it cheaper and easier than replacing it, but it can also look great. But you have to use the right paint for the job. If applied properly, it can boost the whole appearance of your home, creating a sleek, unique look.
