Interior Painting FAQ

 Preparing for your South Jersey Painters?

Interior Painting in Medford NJRepairs and Paints will come in to paint your South Jersey home. We specialize in interior painting. We are expecting to handle everything ourselves. We move all of the furniture into the middle of the room remove pictures from the walls and take down any window treatments. All furniture and belongings are carefully covered and all floors are protected with the proper drop cloths during painting. The only items we ask the customer to move are the small knick- knack type items. Upon completion of the painting we will place all furniture back in the location that it was removed from and re-hang pictures and window treatments.

How often should you paint the interior?

Many factors can contribute to that:

  • The quality of the paint used is important.
  • The environment of the area.
  • Whether or not there are smokers in the home.
  • Is there a fireplace that is used on a regular basis during the winter months, and does the damper work properly?
  • How many children and their ages?

My friend has this color in their house that I like, can I use it in my house, and will it look the similar to the way they have it?

Yes We can get that same exact color, but keep in mind that every house, structure, lighting, is different. Find out from your friend what the color is and get a sample. Paint an area approx. 3′ x 3′ in a few different sections and check how it will look in your home, test it first to see if it fits your preference.

Why should I paint? The house doesn’t look that bad.

A house is a lot like an automobile in the fact that the investment is large and the maintenance is a must. If We don’t wait until the engine blows to check or change the oil We can protect our investment. It truly depends on the owner of the household, if you feel that it needed then We can provided these services and consult with you on how the project can be completed.

What happens if I contract with someone who is not properly insured and one of their workers later claims to have gotten hurt while working on my home?

***Note: You as the homeowner can be held personally responsible for injuries sustained by an uninsured worker while they are on your property. You can be in a very awkward position with your own insurance company as a result of this type of accident. Most people do not realize this, but it can be verified by a phone call to your attorney or insurance agent. Always ask for verification of insurance if you have any doubt and remember companies general liability insurance is not the same as workers compensation! The best way to be sure is to request a certificate of insurance and to check to see if they are licensed.

If I decide to choose your company, what do I do next?

Call us and we will send you a contract and schedule the upcoming project.
