Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What type of paints do you use?

A: This depends on the project and budget we are working within. The paint we recommend for your project is based on our professional evaluation along with the budget you would like to work within.
Typically we will use paints and finishes by Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, PPG Paints, Zinsser Primers, and more.

Q: What is your service area?

A: Our service area covers the entire Fox Valley area including: Oshkosh, Omro, Fond du Lac, Appleton, Neenah, Menasha, Kaukauna, Kimberly, Little Chute, and the High Cliff State Park area.

Q: What is the difference between oil-based paint and latex paint?

A: These paints have resins and thinners in them that evaporate when the paint dries. This process forms a hard coating and provides heavier coverage on the first coat, effective penetration and excellent adhesion. They are particularly good for chalky surfaces and those that already have several layers of oil-based paint.

Q: What does the term gloss mean?

A: It refers to how shiny the paint is. Manufacturers use terms such as flat, satin, semi-gloss and high-gloss to describe their paints, but there are no specific industry standards.

Q: What is the difference between a wood stain and a varnish?

A: A wood stain is used to change the appearance of the wood, such as to bring out the definition in the wood grain or match the look of another species of wood. Varnish, which may be water- or oil-based, provides a clear, transparent coating that is durable and hard. Varnishes also come in a variety of shines from flat to high gloss, and they may be water or oil based.

Q: How do I wash my freshly painted wall?

A: Wait 30 days before washing walls painted with latex paint. Use a mild detergent with warm water and a soft cloth. For washing oil-based paints on woodwork, wait 3-4 days after the paint has been applied. Then use a mild detergent with warm water and a soft cloth.

Q: Can wall papering be painted over?

A: Wall papering can be painted over. Be sure the wall paper is not peeling. To paint over wall paper, use a quick-dry primer and top coat. Generally, it’s not recommended to paint over wall paper as the seams will still be visible.

Q: Can paneling be painted over?

A: Paneling can certainly be painted over. The paneling may need to be sanded prior to painting. Be sure to prime the surface first and then paint over with your top coat.
