Apples to Apples

“How do I get an apples to apples repaint proposal?”
We often hear people say, “It’s just paint!”, but an exterior repaint project can be a very detailed process. Getting proposals on par with each other is the first step to making an exterior repaint process a smooth one for you!
Here are a few tips to get you off to a great start:
  • Choose a paint supplier (Dunn Edwards, Sherwin Williams, Behr, or PPG).
  • Once you’ve decided, we can connect you with the supplier.  They will visit your community and write a paint specification for the project. They will help you decide:
    • Paint warranty you will need: 3-year, 5-7 year, 7+ year warranty.
    • Will there be a color change? (The paint supplier can help you with color choices and renderings.)
    • All items to be painted (and any excluded items).
    • Areas that need attention – stucco flaking, peeling or deterioration; drywall issues, rusted iron, etc…
    • When you want/need to repaint (budget bid or a pressing project).
    • Site walk date with qualified paint contractors (you can choose these or ask for referrals from the paint supplier).
    • Request for Proposal due date.
Having a paint supplier specification on hand will allow for clear and set details, which are given to each bidding paint contractor so you get bids that are apples to apples.
