Getting Ready To Paint

We will help you with your choice of paint color and supply up to six color samples with a 1hr free color consultation. If additional samples are needed to help you choose your color scheme there will be an additional fee.  Each additional sample will cost $15.00 per sample and extra consultation time at a rate of $50.00 per hr.

Once the colors have been chosen, the owner will be responsible if a change needs to be made.  Both additional material and extra labor necessary to make those changes will be added to the total fee of the job.

All Colors must be chosen before the start of the job.
