Chicago Painting

Are you looking for an easy and effective way to improve the appearance of your home? A fresh coat of paint can make a big difference, and we invite you to contact us to learn more about the ways that paint can be used in your home. Here at Custom Cabinets Chicago, we specialize in woodworking and paint services, which often go hand-in-hand when you are upgrading your home or building a new home. Instead of hiring just a painter, there are many benefits to hiring a contractor who offers both woodworking and paint services. Often, woodworking repairs are needed before the paint can be applied, and we can offer both specialties in order to ensure that you receive a high quality finished product. These are a few of the painting services that we offer:

Wood and Wall Preparation

It is a mistake to paint a surface without first prepping the area, because it might result in paint that begins to peel or chip soon after the painting job is done. In some cases, you might even be able to rub or gently scratch the freshly painted surface to remove the top coat, because the paint doesn't bond with the stain below. There's actually a lot more that is required for a professional painting job, because the surface needs to be properly prepared to ensure durability. When the paint or stain is being stripped, specific tools need to be used in order to effectively remove the coat and still protect the wood underneath at the same time. We have all of the tools and equipment that should be used, to protect your home and get the job done right. It is possible to use a sander to remove the finish, or there are also chemical strippers that can be used as well. We will evaluate the surface and the type of wood, and make a recommendation for your project.

How to Pick Your Paint

The paint color will make a big difference in the ambience and overall style within your home, and you need to ensure that you are choosing a color that you will be happy with for a long time. Consider the other colors in your home, and look for ways to tie in the color palette so that it is pleasant to look at. You will be frustrated if you choose a trendy color that is out of the usual color scheme for your home, only to find that it doesn't blend well with the rest of your home. For color ideas, you can look online to find pictures of decor styles that you like. Once you find the shade or hue that you want, we can help you to match that color as close as possible. It is important to consider the underlying tones in the color, as well as the way it will look when it is viewed in different lighting conditions throughout the day. Also, you need to be selective about the type of paint that is being used, because the quality of paint can have an impact on the durability of the paint job. You might be tempted to find the cheapest paint that is available, but you will get what you pay for! Cheap prices on paint probably means that the paint is low-quality, which means that it might need to be re-painted in a shorter period of time. If you are going to put in the work to have your home painted, then you need to make sure that you are doing it right. Choosing the best color and high quality paint will make a big difference.

Do-It-Yourself or Hiring a Professional

Another way to save money is by doing the painting on your own, but a do-it-yourself approach can be quite a lot of work. It's not uncommon for someone to get started on a painting project, only to realize that it takes more effort than they originally anticipated. You can save yourself the headache by talking with a professional painter to make sure the job is done right.
