Pre-paint Interior Checklist

The following checklist will assist us in being able to complete our work quickly and cause as little disruption to your daily routine as possible. Call or email us prior to your paint job with any questions or concerns you may have. We will be glad to discuss them with you. If you are unable to do any of the items on the checklist, please contact us and we will be happy to make arrangements with you. If you are sensitive to odors or pregnant, you should try to make arrangements to stay away from the job site for the duration of the job.
