What information need the Housepainter To Get a Right Quote?

This morning I talked with a customer who did not yet have the keys to his house (being a new apartment and not yet delivered) but had very clear ideas about the housepainting of his new house.

After he send me the floor plan of the apartment by e-mail, I asked him to give me, therefore, the following guidelines to develop a correct quote of the work to be performed:

  • in the case of painting, I asked him to tell me, for each room, the type of material (breathable, washable or no.washable) and color (white, soft or strong) he had thought;
  • in the case of wall decoration (haze, or troweled Venetian plaster) I asked him to show me instead the surface of the walls to be painted.

Easy is not it? I am at your disposal!


The 3 Secrets for Painting a Heater in a Professional Way!

Good evening!

Today I was engaged, among other things, with the painting of some heater in an apartment in Vedano Brianza (Milan).

So I thought to share with you how to paint a heater in a professional manner:

  • with paper glass granulating 100 (available at any specialist shop), you pass the elements of the heater in a light way: the objective is to move a little paint applied earlier to make sure that the new paint (which will go to apply) attacks well;

  • then sprinkle with a clean brush the dust that is created;

  •  finally proceed to paint the heater: I suggest you to use the odorless water-based paint sold in any specialist shop and paint the heater with two hands.
