frequently asked questions


  • What services do you provide?
    • At Selmas Painting, I take pride in the fact that we're able to offer much more than painting alone. While interior painting is my company's staple, I'm also able to provide kitchen cabinets, faux finish, venetian plaster, wallpaper removal, drywall repair, color consultation, and others.
  • How do I choose the right color?
    • There is no doubt that choosing a color for the interior or exterior of your property can be a difficult process. This is why I will make an extra effort to help you make a decision that will produce the results and effect you've dreamed of.
  • Will the inside of my home / business get messy?
    • Not when you work with Selmas Painting. As we handle the entirety of your project from start to finish, you can be sure that I will prepare your home or business for painting. This includes taping and sealing off all areas thoroughly and moving small furniture and paintings.
  • Why shouldn't I just choose the company with the lowest quote / price?
    • The lowest price rarely uses the best materials or delivers the best results. The fact is that, as with any trade, the price is only part of what the contractor brings to your project. At Selmas Painting, we make it our mission to not only use quality material and deliver the results you want, but also to make sure that you have the customer service you deserve.
  • Do you have references?
    • Yes, my references are available upon request.
  • What's the difference between a good paint job and a bad one?
    • A good paint job requires an extensive knowledge of different painting techniques and materials, and the skill and commitment to go with it: Not cutting corners. Preparation. Preparation. Preparation. And finally, budgeting enough time to do the work properly.
  • Does someone have to remain home while the painting is being done?
    • No. This presents no problem whatsoever to me. I normally arrive on the job before you need to leave for work and special arrangements can always be made to pick up a key ahead of time if needed. Your home will be respected the same as it would be if you were there.
