Find the answers to our most commonly asked Equity Painters questions, listed here.
When can I expect my estimate?
In most cases, we provide you with a printed proposal at the end of the on-site estimate, along with a price that includes all materials and labour.
What should I do to prepare for the estimate?
It’s best for all decision-makers to be present at the time of the estimate. If not, make sure you discuss all work together ahead of time. We recommend that you:
- Make a list of all the work you want done for each room or on the exterior of your home.
- Choose colours and/or finishes.
- Make a list of what you did and did not like about your last paint job or painter.
- Identify your budget.
- The estimate will take approximately 60-90 minutes.
Can you separate the bid into several parts or include line items?
Absolutely! We realize you may have priorities and we are glad to help in any way we can to get your job done, all at once, or piece-by-piece.
Can you also repair my drywall or rotten wood?
As a painting company that prides itself on quality and professionalism, we can repair holes and cracks in drywall before we start painting. We offer a variety of other services, too, including repair of rotted wood, wood siding replacement, window sill repair, and other small carpentry jobs. If it’s not listed just ask! We want to earn your business.
What type of paint do you use?
Our professional painters work with multiple suppliers including Benjamin Moore, Behr, Dulux, General Paint, Cloverdale Paint, or any other brand you may prefer. We can recommend a variety of zero- and low-VOC paints for low odour. We always try to be eco-friendly.
How will the paint be applied (brush, roll, spray)?
While each job varies, a combination of brush and roll is typically used to paint walls, ceilings, and trim. Our painting contractors spray cabinetry for a high-quality finish. Exterior siding is commonly sprayed.
What should I do to prepare for the painting after we sign a contract?
Prior to your painting service, we ask that you move fragile or breakable items, for example, pictures, glassware, and electronic devices when possible. We can move furniture and even a wall-mounted TV, if needed. Upon completion of the room, we move everything back into place.
Do you offer commercial painting services?
Do you have examples of work you’ve completed?
