FAQ’s about Interior House Painting

Written by David | May 20, 2024

Welcome to the colorful world of interior house painting, where the scent of fresh paint is a sign of transformation and the sight of drop cloths is a prelude to beauty. But, let’s face it—unless you’ve got a brush in one hand and a mojito in the other on a tropical beach, painting might not be your idea of a good time. Especially if you’re considering hiring professionals for the first time. So, in the spirit of saving your precious weekends for something more exhilarating than watching paint dry, let’s dive into FAQ’s about interior house painting

Hello Everyone, I am David Cook, with Dfranco Painting and Wallpaper in Huntley, IL. We work with home owners and business to improve the look and feel of the space your in. Serving as your trusted paint contractor for the greater fox valley area such as Crystal Lake, Elgin, West Dundee, South Elgin, St. Charles and Geneva to name a few towns. So lets dive in to your questions about house painting.

How Long Does It Take to Paint a Room, Anyway?

Ah, the age-old question. How long is a piece of string? I dont know without seeing it. The time it takes to paint a room can vary more than your mood swings on a Monday morning. It depends on the size of the room, the number of coats, the type of paint, and whether you’re doing it yourself or hiring a pro who actually knows what they’re doing (hint: that would be us). If we’re talking a standard room, a professional team can usually get it done in a day. Just enough time for you to binge-watch your favorite show without guilt.

How Much Will it cost to Paint My Home?

One persone asked me How Much Will I Have to Fork Over to Paint My Home? If only we could answer this with an emoji. Pricing a paint job is like trying to guess the number of jellybeans in a jar. It can vary depending on the size of your home, the quality of the paint, the number of coats needed, and whether your walls are more textured than a teenager’s complexion.

Don’t worry, though; we won’t make you break open your piggy bank. We’ll give you a fair estimate that reflects the quality of our work and your specific needs. Trust us, we’re worth every penny.

What Kind of Paints Should I Use, and Does It Really Matter?

Oh, it matters! Like the difference between a latte and an espresso shot on a groggy morning. Like the difference of a cigar from 7-11 and the humidor at Binny’s beverage depot. Like the difference between jacks frozen pizza and Giordono’s Pizza. This has to be the most FAQ’s about Interior House Painting.

The type and sheen of paint you use can affect the finish, durability, and even your mood. We usually recommend high-quality paints that won’t fade faster than your summer tan.

There’s an entire spectrum of options, from matte to high gloss, and we can help you navigate through it like a GPS for your walls.

What Should I Look for in a Paint Contractor, Besides a Cool Van?

Funny you should ask. While a cool van or truck can be a plus, there are a few other things you may want to consider. Look for a contractor with a wealth of experience (like us, with our 17 glorious years in the biz), a portfolio that dazzles, google reviews -(now over 170! )and testimonials (here are our video testimonials) that are shinier than a new coat of satin finish. Check if they have a sense of humor, too, because let’s face it, watching paint dry isn’t the most exciting thing. Oh, and make sure they’re insured, unless you enjoy living on the edge or gambling.

How Do I Pick Colors Without Having a Mid-Life Crisis?

Our experts can help you pick colors that complement your home’s style and your personal taste—without any of the commitment issues. We can guide you through the emotional rollercoaster of swatches and samples until you find “the one.” PLUS!!! with any ppaint job over $2700 we give you a free color consultation.
