Interior Painting

Interior painting is not an easy task.


A lot of preparation goes into successfully completing an interior painting project to a client’s and our satisfaction.


For example:

  • The walls must be prepped before even stroking a drop of paint.

  • All furniture, appliances, and other non-painting areas must be moved & covered to prevent damage.

  • We must choose interior paint which matches your home and you as a person/family.


Once we accomplish all of these things, the rest is in the hands of our expert craftsman.

Exterior Painting

When friends, family, or neighbors visit your home, the first thing they will notice is the exterior of your home.


With all of the beautiful homes in Forest Hills, it can be hard to make yours stand out.

Nothing leaves a better first impression than a modern and unique coat of paint.


Here’s the process we follow to ensure every exterior painting project turns out beautiful:

  • First, our crew will pressure wash the outside of your home to remove any dirt or debris.

  • We’ll scrape off the old paint and cover any non-painting areas to prevent paint splatter.

  • We’ll do our final prep, then start laying down beautiful exterior paint.


There are many benefits to painting the exterior of your home and even business, including:

  • Uncovering insect damage (which can cost you an arm and a leg in the future
