Shoreline Contractor and Painters of Connecticut FAQs

Q?What should I do to prepare the interior of my home for painting?
A.

Our painting crews protect all your furniture, fixtures, and floor coverings when they prepare the area, however we ask that you clear the room of small items and breakables. We can also move the bigger items for you when we arrive upon request.

Q?What type of paint do you use?
A.

We like to pair the paint we use with the job we are doing. Most commonly we use Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams for interior painting and Benjamin Moore, Sikkens and Sherwin-Williams for exterior painting.

If there is a different paint brand or type you would like to use, we are more than happy to use that as well. Just ask!

Q?Do you provide touch up paint after you are finished?
A.

We sure do! Once we’ve completed painting, we provide all the leftover paint for the touch-ups. We can also remove and properly dispose of your old paint as well, just be sure to inquire about our removal service when our estimator comes to your home!

Q?Are you a licensed and insured painting contractor?
A.

Yes, our painting company has been fully licensed and insured since by the State of Connecticut. This means that not only do we carry liability insurance, but we also carry workers’ compensation insurance. This isn’t only because it is required by the state, but because it protects our work force as well as you, the home owner, because unfortunately, injuries do happen.

Q?How long does a job take?
A.

The length of each project varies. We have a very large crew however and most of the residential painting we do can be completed in less than a week. Commercial painting projects can take longer depending on the size of the building(s). Throughout the entire project, we make sure to keep you very informed of the timeline. Once the estimator comes out to take a look at your project, we can give you an estimate completion date.

Q?Do I need to use a special paint in the bathroom and kitchen?
A.

In areas with high amounts of water/humidity or food preparation, we use a mildew-resistant paint which provides a durable, easy-to-clean finish.

Q?How do you treat an older home with lead paint?
A.

Removing lead paint is strictly regulated by state and federal safety practices. Metzenbauer Painting and Finishing is proud to be a EPA certified business who has staff expertly trained in the removal of lead paint. If you find lead paint in your home, call (860) 509-7745 for your free estimate.

Q?Can I leave my home while your painting crew works?
A.

Certainly! While you are at work or running errands, our crew will be busy prepping and painting your home. We are fully licensed and insured so there is nothing to worry about.
