Here are some of the FAQs we hear from clients in Novi, MI who think of hiring our professional painters for their projects. If you too are interested in working with Painting Services by Jaime Fix and would like to learn more about the painting industry and work methods, read this page. Feel free to contact us if you have further inquiries.

1: Why exterior paint fails?

A: South and west exposures weather sooner than the north and east sides. Also, areas of the home that are covered by plants or trees do not get door air circulation or sunlight and can remain damp for longer. An improperly positioned irrigation system is another good reason for exterior paint failure. An annual inspection of the house by an exterior painting contractor along with a touch-up will extend the life of the job on your surfaces by years.

2: Why interior walls get dull?

A: Many new properties have oil-based paint as a finish coat on the trim. While these are a good durable solution, today’s water-based paints are better. Unfortunately, conventional paints should not be applied to other types of paints. Special preparation work and primer application with the correct water or alkyd topcoat will be used. Or if you are painting oil-based paint, repaint it with the same product again. The drawbacks of oil are the odor and dry time.

3: What finishes your interior painter can create?

A: We can give your surfaces flat, matte, satin/eggshell, and semi-gloss. For exteriors, we can also give gloss finishes. Each one of these has its perks and cons so if you want to discuss which option is best for your needs, contact our professional painters right away. They will be happy to help!

4: What is the full list of services you can perform?

A: Our professional painters excel in painting and there is no job that they cannot complete. They specialize in interior painting, exterior painting, power washing, wood staining, deck restoration, door & window trim, staining, refinishing, and more.

5: Who provides the paint for the residential painting project?

A: Our company receives substantial discounts on various products and brands. These savings are passed onto the customer. Whether the paint is included in the contract or not, at a service to you, we will order and pick up the materials. Just let us know ahead what kind of paint you prefer, type of color, and texture preferences.

5: How soon can you finish a job once you have started?

A: Most homes can be finished within a week, unless they are too large, or there are issues with the weather. Typical exterior jobs take us two days to complete. The interiors will vary.

6: Do you take a deposit when scheduling the painting service?

A: For most situations, we do not take a deposit. Customers will pay the full amount when the job is completed, except under specific circumstances, such as when the job is contracted just for labor. Contact us for more details on this matter.
