already hired us and have questions?

It varies by project. The best thing you can do is clear the area that we’ll be working in. This can include removing pictures or decorations from walls, rolling up carpets, taking down drapes, and more. For example, if we’ll be doing your kitchen cabinets then be sure to clear the cabinets and surrounding areas out.

Simply keep them out of the area. In another room or outside (if we’re doing an inside job, or vice versa if outside) is fine. Sometimes our pets like to rub their fur against the walls, so we want to ensure that they don’t get paint on them and they don’t get fur on the paint. There are no extra fees for painting your pets!

Our process is project dependent, so it’s likely that one project you have with us will have a different process than the next. You should receive an email regarding your project information that will include your specific process. As a guideline, we begin with prep work, then move onto painting, and lastly the final clean up.

If we have a way to access the area that we’ll need to paint then no, you don’t have to be there. For example if we’re painting the exterior of your house and we can be let in through a side gate, then it’s not needed for someone to be home. As always, do what’s most comfortable for you!

Yes, as long as everyone is in a separate area than the painters.

• We require a 10% deposit that you’ve already paid upon approval of the estimate. Depending on the length and amount of the project, this can vary. For larger projects payments will be made through work progress statements and you’ll pay based on the work completed at the time. For smaller projects, you can split up the payment however you’d like, but the remaining balance is due by or before the completion date.

• Payments can be made by check addressed to Basurto Painting LLC or through PayPal.

We also provide complementary color selection assistance. Not sure which color looks best, or do you need help selecting colors that complement one another? With over 15 years of experience, we’re more than happy to aid you in picking the perfect color and applying samples.
