Property Owner’s Responsibilities

  • Remove pictures from all walls. Leave nails if pictures will be rehung.

  • Painters will perform daily clean up of masking materials and painting supplies.
  • Any tools left on the job will be neatly organized and placed in a location of the property owner’s choice.

Preparation Process

  • Mask floors, furniture, light fixtures, windows, and other unpainted surfaces.
  • Fill nail holes and sand flush.
