Choosing a Professional is the Right Choice for Residential Paint Jobs

Many people think they are saving money by tackling interior and exterior residential paint jobs themselves. What they do not take into consideration is the time, knowledge, and professionalism it requires to execute a project from start to finish. With over 15 years of experience serving Sonoma County homeowners, we are here to take on both small and large jobs to ensure you aren’t wasting your time or your money.

We are prepared for a variety of residential painting projects, including:

  • Color Matching
  • Two-Coat Application
  • Brush/Roll Applications
  • Fine Finish Spray Applications
  • Elastomeric Coatings
  • Power Washing
  • and more.

During our many years of experience, we have seen more than a few mistakes made by first time painters during residential projects, including…

Improper Preparation of an Indoor Area

Having an exciting vision can get in the way of executing a proper plan. Here at Timmings Painting, we help you plan and execute your project from start to finish. We will prepare the area to ensure we leave your home spotless after the job in finished, as well as maintain an exceptionally clean area while we work.

Some people think they know how to prep ceilings and walls with painter’s tape, until they peel it off to reveal messy results. Our seasoned painters know how to apply tape tightly and in a straight line. We also know the best ways to cover and protect your floors, furniture, and other important areas from rogue spills and drips.

Preparation doesn’t just include covering the floor or applying painter’s tape correctly.  Prepping the painting surface is a step many DIYers forget to complete. Washing walls and vacuuming baseboards are simple things that we’ll never miss.

Choosing the Wrong Paint for your Residential Paint Job

You would not believe how often labels are overlooked, and people come home with the wrong can of paint for their project. Our professional team knows the best paints for indoor, outdoor, cabinetry, and other paint projects. Our experience has taught us which paint to use, and when & where to use it.

Not Knowing the Amount of Paint You will Need

We have done countless residential paint jobs throughout Sonoma County, helping us understand just how much paint is needed for each project. No matter what the square footage of your job, you do not want to make a second trip to the store to buy more paint. Mixing colored paint at different times can result in different colors — yes, even at the same store with the same formula.

Heading into a job with confidence should be matched by knowledge and experience to ensure the project is done properly.

Having the Wrong Tools (and Brushes) for the Job

You are probably trying to save money by attempting a residential paint job yourself, but you weren’t expecting to have to invest in all of the proper tools and brushes it takes to achieve a quality finish. Here at Timmins, we have the best tools to get the job done right, the first time. Not only do the quality of the brushes matter, there is a variety of sizes and styles for different sections of your home. You will find that the costs will add up quick for a project you budgeted tightly for.

Not only do we have the know-how to get your job done seamlessly, we are thrilled to help. Our goal is to exceed your expectations, so you can rest assured that your paint project is in the hands of highly-skilled professionals. We guarantee you will be happy with our work.
