We know that hiring interior painters and inviting them into your home to paint is an act of trust. Every day, on every job, our interior house painters earn the trust of our customers by making sure the painting project is completed correctly, promptly and with minimal interruption for the customer.
Our interior house painters in Northern New Jersey will make sure to give your home the best interior painting you could dream of. Not only do we offer superior house interior painting, we also offer powerwashing and other services for homeowners.
Before we begin painting, you’ll meet the crew leader and other painters who will be working in your home. All of Landis Painting’s crew members are employees — not subcontractors — who have been trained by Landis Painting’s hands on supervision.
Landis Painting is an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm, and all employees have received lead-safe training. Our painters use the right tools and equipment for the job and high-quality Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams paint (or the customer’s preferred paint) in order to ensure consistently good results. Landis painters double check painting and color choices, set up a dedicated site for tools and ask about any pets we need to watch out for. We review everything with you before we begin to make sure we understand exactly what you want.
Objects and surfaces that will not be painted will be covered and protected. We prepare the surfaces carefully, knowing that prep work is the most important part of any paint job. Only then do we begin painting. The result of all this preparation: A pleasant experience and a beautiful paint job to enjoy for years to come.
Interior Paint Preparation
The following are Landis’ standard practices.
- Landis Painting Inc. will cover and protect all furnishings and floors.
- Hardware will be removed and re-installed. This includes curtain rods, window latches, switch plates and cover plates. Door knobs, thermostats and alarm system hardware will not be removed.
- We will scrape, patch and sand walls.
- Before applying final coats, we will re-inspect and patch walls as necessary.
- Wall and ceiling cracks will be filled with spackling compound. When the compound is dry, we will sand it smooth. More advanced cracks will receive an application of fiberglass joint tape, and will be spackled and sanded smooth.
- We also will scrape and sand rough areas created by previous paint failure.
- Glossy surfaces and trim will be sanded and cleaned to assure proper paint adhesion.
- We will caulk cracks in wood trim and along wall/trim interfaces.
- We will clean up and vacuum work areas at the end of each day. Debris will be taken away.
- When the job is completed, unused paint will be labeled and left at the job site.
