Yes, we also offer carpentry services, including trim replacement; custom shelving and cabinetry; drywall installation and finishing; and all flooring types, excluding carpet.

Interior painting can be completed at any time. With exterior painting, you typically have a nine-month window in central Ohio from March to November. Exterior painting is always dependent on temperatures. It is OK to paint as long as it’s above 45 degrees.

Every project is individualized and specific to itself. Sam will come to your home and look at it personally to determine the work that needs to be performed and the pricing.

Typically, that is project-specific depending on the weather for exterior painting and the scope of work. Upon sending a quote, we will give you an estimated time of completion. Average exterior painting work typically takes three to six days. Depending on the size of the job, work could take one day to one month.

Every job starts off with prepping and masking all work areas, which will cover personal belongings.

You ask the painting contractor to see their license to contract work, their proof of insurance COI (certificate of insurance) and GC  (General Contactor) registration card.
