3. What is important when I am researching a Decorative Painter and Finisher? Select a business that is reputable, has a lengthy referral and reference list, and provides proof of technical expertise, such as formal training certifications and licensing. In terms of expertise, find an artisan that has the actual experience and talent necessary to do the work you envision. Beware of substandard companies offering cheap rates, heavy discounts, promos and "me too" pitches. They may advertise that they provide faux painting and finishing, however most often they have no formal art of painting training, and they may not be certified or trained. In this industry, you do get what you pay for. You want an artisan that will do the job right the first time, use quality materials, and provide the attention your project deserves.

We never sell or distribute any of your personal information to third parties for any purpose. Any personal information you provide to us is held in strict confidentiality. Our goal in collecting this information is only to establish communication, and to provide helpful information related to your possible design projects.
