Why is it important to use a licensed contractor?
Licensed contractors must abide by state laws with
regards to ethics and standards of behavior. They
must also be insured. Licensing protects the consumer.

color should I choose?
Clients usually have an idea on color choice but we
are prepared to assist you in color selection and
we know which colors will harmonize with your decor.
Starting with a standard palette we consult with you
to decide which hue and tone is best for your home.
Of course you, the client, have the ultimate decision
so we will paint whatever color you wish.
Oil or Latex?
Latex primers and finishes have been improving tremendously
over the years and are very durable. For instance
a latex finish on an exterior painting job will stay
elastic for years, where oil based paint dries to
form a hard and more brittle film. Surfaces expand
and contract with weather. While the latex paint will
move with the surface, the oil will tend to crack
sooner with this movement. Due to reformulation requirements,
exterior oil base paints oxidize and fade rapidly.
advantage of using oil paints is that it will give
a smoother look as it tends to layout better on the
surface and will not show brush marks as much as latex.
long will it take to paint my house?
The process can take as little as 5-7 days from the
time we connect with you. However, it can take longer
depending on the condition of your surfaces, the type
of work required, and weather conditions if the project
involves exterior work.
our consultation with you, we will evaluate your situation
and can let you know how long we think it will take
to complete your painting project.
What kind of paint do you use?
We use only professional quality paints from Dunn
Edwards unless the customer requests a different brand.
And of course we only use paint types that are best
suited for the job.
Will my property be protected?
Lund Painting takes great care in ensuring that all
not-to-be-painted surfaces are protected with tarps,
tape and/or completely moved out of the way. We believe
that quality extends to the areas that are not
painted as well. Paint splatters are just not our
Will you start on time every day and will you
finish on time?
We realize that you are inconvenienced during the
project and that it is critical that timelines are
met. Lund Painting is serious about not over-extending
and promising deadlines that cannot be met. During
the consultation we will discuss the timeframe that
works best for you and keep to that timeframe weather
(exterior work) permitting.
