Great Interior Painting Requires Good Prep
Good Interior Painting Means Good Painters Using Good Paint and a System
Good Interior Painting Means Leaving Your Home Clean When We're Done
When we're finished we wipe off any splatters that may have fallen on baseboards, re-cut the baseboards if needed, touch up any light spots that might be showing through, and pull up any tape, tarps or plastic that's been used. Finally, we do a detailed inspection with you to be sure your happy with our work and the results.
Calhoun Painting is proficient at dealing with all kinds of ceilings and textures including popcorn and smooth. If needed, we're good at removing old popcorn ceilings, then floating and painting them to a smooth updated finish. We employ any number of professional residential painting methods including brushing, rolling and spraying—depending on the situation.
If you're looking to add a decorative dimension to your ceilings we're are the painters to do it. We're great at decorative Faux Finishes for ceilings, and can make you're ceilings look as good as the one below.
Painting the interior walls of your home is one of the least expensive ways to impact not only the look and beauty of your home, but the mood. Make the inside of your home the best place to be on earth—with wall colors that are warm and inviting, and that enhance and compliment your decor. We're great with color and would love to help you with color choices that can make the interior of your home warmly flow together from room to room. Call us!
The trim in your home serves many purposes, but mostly to accent and frame the colors on your walls. Trim is like the outline of a picture in a coloring book. When done right, trim should look fresh, clean and precise, causing the color on your walls to look their best. We love interior painting, and it will show when we're finished!
At Calhoun Painting we use a superior Sherwin-Williams paint product—ProClassic—to ensure beauty and lasting durability when painting trim. We also go to great lengths to "cut-in" the trim so that paint lines between trim and walls are precise, straight and professional looking. After all, we want your home to look its best!
We also test your existing paint finish to ensure we don't put latex paint over oil, which would result in poor adhesion and become cause for a lot of problems and unnecessary expense.
We Proudly Use
Faux Impressions™ Latex Glaze
The various effects available from Faux Impressions ™ Latex Glaze are accomplished by applying 1 or more layers of colored glaze over a base coat. Since the Latex Glaze is translucent (tinting creates a transparent glaze and mixing with paint creates a semi-opaque glaze), the basecoat color influences the finished appearance. It is a recommended practice to preview color choices on a 2 ft by 2 ft practice board prior to painting your project area.

If you're not the one who put the paper up, chances are you don't know how it was applied or what kind of glue was used, and whether the walls were sized, primed or painted before it was put up. This lack of knowledge can make a huge difference in knowing how to remove it quickly and effectively---saving money.
Further, when wallpaper removal isn't done correctly, the sheet rock underneath is often damaged more than necessary. This results in considerable more labor time necessary to properly "float" the walls smooth before they can be painted. And, if you don't know how to float walls smooth, you may have a real mess on your hands. Let a pro like us handle this.
Another option is to simply float the seams smooth and then paint over the wallpaper. This is often a less expensive way to get rid of wallpaper and can look as good as it does after pulling it down. But it requires some know how and patience. We have both.
As professional wallpaper removal contractors, Calhoun Painting can help you determine the answers to these concerns—allowing you to make the wisest decision with regard to the most economical way to deal with old wallpaper

We Pepare the Room
we begin painting a room we first have to properly prepare it. We
remove all pictures, mirrors and mobile shelving from the walls. We
will leave hooks or nails if you plan on putting things back up where
they were, so you don't have to re-center them. Then we remove all
the light switch and plug plates. We move furniture to the center of
the room and cover it with plastic. Then we lay drop cloths down over
We Prepare the Room's Surfaces
being by using sheetrock mud to repair and fill any holes, dents,
cracks, or crevices, so when we're done painting the walls are
restored to a smooth finish. Any wall or ceiling stains are primed
with stain killer and polyurethane to ensure they don't reappear.
Gaps between trim and walls, or between walls and ceiling are all caulked
and smoothed. Then we sand the walls if needed, wipe and wipe down baseboards to ensure smooth finishes.
We begin painting by cutting-in
between the ceiling and walls, and then around the walls and trim, working
our way down from top to bottom. This is done by experienced
craftsman painters with a steady hand, who pay close attention to
detail to ensure precision cut paint lines and no overlap between
the cutting-in is complete, and while the edges are still damp,
another painter rolls out the walls, getting as close to the edges as
possible to ensure no flashing when the paint dries, and in such a
way to ensure proper coverage. Often a second coat is needed
to guarantee appearance and durability.
