The first step will be to decide what colors you would like to paint your house. Paint swatches and samples are available for viewing and pickup at your local Sherwin Williams and Kwal paint stores. Sherwin Williams also has a color visualizer to view colors on your home which you can view here https://www.sherwin-williams.com/visualizer/. Please keep in mind that colors may vary in shade depending on the quality of your monitor/screen and may look different than the actual paint on your home. If you need further assistance, Kwal Paint and Sherwin Williams also offer a free color consultation. If you are uncertain about how a color may look up on your house, Baseline Painting will provide up to three free samples per household to pick-up at an agreed Sherwin Williams or Kwal store. Every sample after that is $10 dollars each. Once you have selected your colors, please email or fax your color selection form to Baseline Painting.
If Baseline is matching a color from a different paint manufacturer into a Sherwin Williams or a Kwal paint, we will have you sign-off on the newly matched color swatch before we begin your painting project.
Baseline will schedule your painting start date after receiving your colors and price confirmation on our color selection form. We all know Colorado weather is unpredictable and there may be other unforeseen circumstances that change your schedule. Our office staff will always make our best efforts to keep your original painting schedule.
Before We Start:
The homeowner must perform some miscellaneous duties outside home to prepare for the crew arrival. Trees, bushes, shrubs, and any other vegetation that are on or close to the house should be cut and trimmed back so the painters can perform their work. Please remove all wall hangings, decorations, and other outdoor accessories from the exterior of your home. The above miscellaneous duties must be completed before Baseline begins your painting or stain project. We will aid in the removal and covering of heavy items such as grills and or patio furniture. If you have pets, we ask that you keep them inside or in an area outside of the home away from the areas being painted or stained.
Start Date & What To Expect:
1.) Power washing – Is the first step of preparing your home for paint and is a medium to light rinse that removes dust and light dirt. Some cob webs & loose dirt may remain so our painters will wipe those areas down before painting.
2.) Prep-Work – Our painters scrape lose paint, caulk open seams between painted areas and nail holes as best we can, prime exposed wood and hammer loose nails in siding and trim. Baseline will also cover areas in plastic when needed.
3.) Painting – Baseline applies all coatings using an airless spray machine, brush and roll or a combination according to the product and specifics of your project. (For more information on our products (CLICK HERE)
4.) Clean-up – Our crews will perform a light daily clean-up and upon completion remove any other plastic, tape and debris from your home area as best we can.
5.) Final walk through – Our crew leader will walk your home with you and look over all painted areas verifying their completion. If any areas require touch-up they will all be completed at that time. Our crew leader will present a simple completion form for you to complete and sign.
6.) Payment – Payment is due at time of walk through unless other arrangements were scheduled in writing with Baseline
