At Kane, we are often asked: “What do I need to do before you get here?” For interior work, whether we’re painting just a room or two or your entire home or business, we ask that clients remove small objects and store them someplace safe from damage. This includes wall art, TVs, pictures, knickknacks, or anything glass, fragile, or valuable. (Customers who need help moving things due to health conditions should let us know. We will be happy to assist.) Our painters will move large items like beds, couches, and tables as needed. Preparing for our arrival by removing items and clearing pathways for us to work will protect your valuables and help us do our job more efficiently so you can enjoy your freshly painted space sooner.
For exteriors, the process is similar. Small items around the house or building (like garden statues, hoses, etc.) and anything leaning against your house (such as trellises or wood piles) should be moved, and trees and shrubs should be trimmed at least three inches away from the structure.
Structural problems should also be addressed before our painters arrive. This includes:
- Repairing wood siding
- Fixing the source of water damage
- Replacing gutters
- Removing dry rot
- Repairing or sealing large holes or cracks
