Why Textbook Painting
For Interior Paint Jobs
Textbook means the job is done the correct way, by the book. We have specific teams of interior painters dedicated to providing exceptional quality and customer service. Our interior crews are very different from our exterior painting crews because the work is so different. It requires different tools and techniques, as well as knowledge of different types of products.
We have extremely high standards for all of the work we do, but our standards for interior work are even higher because of how important the inside of your home is. We take every precaution to ensure the best quality work, with as little disruption to your routine as possible. Whether it is a pattern design or simply an upgraded color palette, we would be happy to help you love the way the inside of your home looks.
If you are looking to paint one room, the entire house or even the kitchen cabinets, we would be happy to provide a free, no obligation quote.

Different prices everywhere! Why?
When looking for an interior painter near you to trust your house with, you’ll notice there’s a range of different prices. A good portion of them should be very similar though. But still, why are the prices to hire a local painter so different? Well, there’s a lot of reasons that could factor into this – such as the types of products they’re using, number of people they have on the job, or the amount of prep work required. It’s important to know when it’s ok to compromise on an area, and when it’s not.

Best Interior Paints
Know your project. Know your paint.
There are lots of paints out there – do you know which one is right for your project? There are paints that are good for areas with high moisture or grease. There are paints that are good for stain blocking. There are even paints that are thicker and good for coverage. Knowing what your project is can help you determine what kind of paint is best.

Do you even need to remove it?
Ahhh.. wallpaper! Did you know that wallpaper is actually making a little comeback in current design trends? If you have older wallpaper in your home, you most likely wish you could wave your magic paint brush and make it disappear back in to the 80’s and 90’s where it came from! The problem is that there is no magic paint brush to wave to remove wallpaper. It can be extremely time consuming and frustrating. If the wallpaper is curling up at the seams and corners, it will probably come away from the glue fairly easily. Then you’ll need to really scrape and clean the remaining glue residue off. Afterward, you may need to do some drywall repair or sanding to make sure you have a smooth wall texture.
After removing wallpaper, there is a vital step to ensure a great result that is often overlooked. You need to prime the walls with an oil-based primer to seal out any remaining glue residue, otherwise it will react with a latex paint causing all sorts of problems.
It is also possible to paint over wallpaper and avoid removing it all together. This really is only an option if the current wallpaper is in great shape (which would indicate it will be difficult to get off). In this case, you would need to use drywall mud to smooth out the seams. You would again need to prime with an oil-based primer before painting. The majority of the time, you should remove wallpaper for the best, longest-lasting results but every project is different.
