Frequently Asked Questions About House Painting
Do you paint the inside of cabinets?
Yes, our painting company would be glad to help you paint or stain any wooden surface inside or outside of your Pasadena home. We paint and stain shelving, cabinets, drawers, trim, decks, wood shingles, doors, and more.
How long does it take for interior paint to dry?
How long it takes for interior paint to dry depends on a number of factors including what type of paint is used, the humidity level indoors, and whether or not you are running your HVAC system. If you have family or are concerned in any way about damaging the finish, we can use a fast drying paint.
Oil-based paint can take anywhere from 6-8 hours to dry but we recommend 24 hours. Latex dries fast, about an hour. Still, we recommend that you don't touch the walls until after 4 hours. Run your HVAC system and any fans in your home to expedite the process but be sure they aren't covered in dust first!
Can you patch up my exterior stucco before painting?
We can patch your exterior stucco before house painting. It's always important to have a smooth surface before painting or the defects will show after the paint dries. Our house painters can also help you with light carpentry repairs if you need it.
Can you help me with cedar siding shingles that need staining and sealing?
Yes, we would be glad to help you stain and seal your wood siding. Our painting company can also help you with other wood staining and varnish work.
Do you offer painting service for historical homes?
Many homes in the Pasadena area need special care when painting. Our painting company is experienced in painting historical homes in the San Gabriel Valley, so contact us if you need help with an interior or exterior painting project.
What's the best way to clean a painted wall?
You should never use chemical cleaners or abrasive cleaning tools on a painted wall or the finish could be damaged. Clean a painted wall with a smooth cloth that has been dampened with gentle soap and water. Be sure to always rinse the surface afterward. You can try using a Magic Eraser on scuff marks and stains if necessary.
