FAQs

Q. How long does it take to paint my house?

The length of time each job takes depends on variables such as the size of the home and the weather conditions. When Elkins Painting & Wallpapering arrives for your free quote, we'll be able to give you a better time frame estimate based on your specifications. Keep in mind, the job needs to allow time for preparation, paint application, dry time, reapplication, and cleanup.

Q. Will we be able to sleep in our home after the interior has been painted?

The short answer is yes. If, for some reason, we feel it's a concern due to slow drying time, inadequate ventilation, or some other issue, we'll discuss that with you. If anyone in your household suffers from respiratory breathing problems, you may want to make alternative arrangements for the first night.

Q. Can't I remove wallpaper on my own?

It's never a good idea to attempt to make painting or wallpapering a DIY project. It may seem less complex until you begin the task. It's easier to let professionals do it from the start than call them in once you've gotten in too deep. For wallpaper, the primary concern is the integrity of the wall.

Q. Should I replace or refinish my cabinets?

Most of the time, refinishing is just as effective as replacing cabinets, but at a fraction of the cost. You can experience a dramatic difference with the appearance of your cabinets by having them professionally refinished and save the time and money that replacing them would cost. Plus, it keeps otherwise usable cabinets out of the landfill, which is a greener choice to make.

Q. How long does epoxy coatings on floors last?

A well-installed and properly cured epoxy floor should last an average of 7 years or a minimum of 5 and maximum of 10. It's worth the investment and effort to have epoxy flooring put in.

Q. Will deck restoration really help?

Deck restoration that's carried out by industry experts can revitalize your outdoor living space. Over time, decks become weathered and damaged. Homeowners often fail to keep up with seasonal and annual maintenance, which causes decking to age faster. You can either give up and stop using your deck or let us restore it to good-as-new condition.

Q. Does commercial painting help business at all?

Choosing to paint the interior, exterior, or both for your commercial facility does more than improve the appearance. A new look can make a good first impression, lure in prospective customers, and boost employee morale - all of which impact your revenue. It's a minimal investment for a higher rate of return.
