Frequently Asked Questions

Each customer has a different vision for their project, and that means the level of preparation will be tailored to meet the needs of each customer and their unique project. Below is a description of the various types of preparation we usually perform. Your estimator will discuss with you what you hope to achieve with your project, tailor the proposal to capture that vision, and price the project accordingly.

  • Washing — new paint requires a clean, dry, and firm base to adhere to correctly.

  • Scraping — all loose and peeling paint should be removed by scrappers, knives, and/or steel brushes. All areas should be scrapped back to a firm edge.

  • Sanding — sanding is a beautification process and does not add longevity to the paint job. As such, this is one point where you must discuss your desires with the estimator. Often, sanding is focused on high visibility areas.

  • Caulking and Sealing— gaps, cracks, and crevices in siding, and around doors and windows will be sealed and caulked. Different substrates require different caulks and sealers, and we will use the correct product for each specific circumstance.
No, not all of the old paint needs to be removed. It is important to have any loose, peeling, cracking, or degraded paint removed prior to painting. However, if you do wish to have specific areas of the building stripped of all old paint (such as entryways or front doors), please discuss this with your estimator – this can usually be priced as an option, although this type of “restoration” can be rather expensive.
The durability and longevity of a paint job is affected more by the quality of the preparation than the number of coats of paint. In most instances Spotless Painting Painters specifies two complete coats of paint for previously painted surfaces. New, raw surfaces usually receive a full prime coat prior to finish coat(s) being applied. Additionally, very dramatic color changes often require a full prime coat prior to finish coats being applied. If you are not changing color and the existing paint is in relatively good condition, a single coat of matching color and sheen may suffice, but will require discussing the pros and cons of such a paint system with your estimator.
Not likely. In fact we get better discounts than the employees of most of the major paint manufacturers. If you want the best materials for the lowest price, then let us get them for you.
We work with Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, California and Cabot products.
Yes, you can. Although we do not guarantee quality and durability of work.
