Whether on an interior or exterior paint job, we will normally start clients looking at standard color charts. A lot colors there are stock and the stock color paints tend to perform better due to the process of their manufacture. The exterior paint color chart will also have a nice variety of harmonious color combinations to choose from.
Another very good way to get started on a color selection is to take a look at our web site’s photo gallery. This will give you some idea of what the final look of your home might be and, of cause, we have formulas for all colors that were used there.
You may also want to drive around the neighborhood and find similar houses similar to yours to see what others have done with colors. We may be able to help you with color matching if you send us some digital photos.
We can provide cardboard paint color brush-outs. Many clients find that this helps them to better visualize the final result.
Sheen refers to the light reflectivity of the painted or varnished surface. There are varying degrees of sheen, from no sheen to high gloss. Though some paint manufacturers may refer to their paint sheens by different names, generaly, from lowest to highest, paint sheens correspond to these reflective degrees:
- Flat finish
- Eggshell finish
- Satin finish
- Semi gloss finish
- High gloss finish
Paint blocking is an adhesion problem that occurs when two freshly painted surfaces stick together when pressed against each other. This often happens between a door and frame if closed before paint has completely cured. When separated, the paint may peel or leave a mark.
One way to prevent paint stickiness is to place wax paper between the door and the door jamb. The wax from the paper creates a barrier between the two surfaces. Don’t immediately stick the paper in the door frame. Instead, wait for the door to dry for one to two hours. Then place the wax paper between the two surfaces before closing the door for the night. Another wax method is to rub a white candle over the edges of the door after the paint dries. This gives the freshly painted door some protection from the newly finished jamb.
Interior paint typically gets dirty in many situations: hand prints around switches and knobs; splashes in kitchens and bathrooms; marks on hallways and corridors; “soot” accumulating above electric lamps and other heat sources. Removing dirt before it accumulates not only improves appearance, it reduces chances of it getting permanently embedded in the paint film.
Check for dirt periodically and assume it will be present in and near cooking areas (airborne cooking oil) and at all places at hand height. Always initially clean the surface with a mild detergent using a sponge or a soft cloth. Resort to harsher cleaners only when necessary, recognizing that alkaline cleaners can dull the sheen or gloss of oil based paint. Abrasive cleaner will burnish nearly any paint and will dull the gloss of satin, semigloss and gloss products. Washed surfaces should be rinsed thoroughly because residual cleaner can interfere with adhesion of paint applied later.
