Country Painting – Our Process

As the preferred painting company in the area, we here at Country Painting feel it is important to review our procedure with prospective clients. That way, you have a good idea of how the process will work.

Interior Process

Step 1: Preparation

We believe that thorough preparation is key to a quality paint job.

Larger furnishings are relocated to the center of the room and covered. Drop cloths are put in designated areas including walkways, flooring etc. Baseboards and trim work are taped for protection prior to painting.

Walls are inspected for blemishes that require repair before painting such as holes, nail pops, etc. Repairs are made and the wall is sanded.

Caulking is also applied as needed, such as gaps between wall and baseboard.

Step 2: Painting

First coat of high-quality SWP paint is applied and allowed to dry before a second coat is added.

Step 3: Daily Maintenance (Applicable for projects longer than a single day)

We will work with the homeowner to establish a pre-determined location for temporary material storage. This helps reduce the length of time for the job, saving you time and money.

Step 4: Final Walk Through

This gives our boss the opportunity to walk through the premises and ensure that all of the contracted areas have been painted to your specifications and our company standards.

Exterior Process

Step 1: Power Washing

Any professional house painter will start your project with a power wash. This rids the exterior of mildew, dirt, dust, loose paint, etc. It is absolutely necessary for the success of your new paint job to have a clean surface to adhere to.

Step 2: Painting

Application of high-quality SWP paint is applied and allowed to dry prior to inspection.

Step 3: Daily Maintenance

We will partner with the homeowner and decide on an area to act as a temporary storage space for our materials for jobs lasting more than a day. Leaving necessary materials for the job on-site establish a pre-determined location for temporary material storage. This helps reduce the length of time for the job, saving you time and money.

Step 4: Final Walk Through

A lead contractor will conduct a walk through as a measure of quality control. This ensures that all of the contracted areas have been taken care of in order to provide you with guaranteed customer satisfaction.

I got three estimates out of 15 fliers we received in the mail. Country Painting was a bit more expense but the quality of the work, the dedication to finishing in the time frame promised, the friendliness of the crew, and t he result was well worth the money. They were the only estimate wanting to put two coats of paint on my house exterior and they replaced wood siding where needed whereas the other estimates wanted me to buy the wood needed and hire a sub contracted through them to do the work. Owen and Mike Riley are great to work with, professional, and trustworthy. The crew chief, Dennis, was on top of the entire project. I would recommend them for any painting project since the business was started by the grandfather in 1959 and now is run by the third generation of Riley’s.[...]
