Step By Step Interior Painting Process
Protection Of Your Home And Belongings
Floors and carpets are covered in drops cloths. Furniture and belongings are protected in plastic along with any other necessary surfaces. Switch plate and outlet covers are removed and hardware or fixtures that can’t be removed are masked off as needed. If doors are being painted, handles and hardware are removed and hinges are taped off.
Working Cleanly And With Consideration
We continuously clean as we work and on larger projects we do an end of day clean up that includes organizing our tools and equipment in a way that provides you some function in your home during the process. We use a certified Hepa filter dust-extraction system for our sanding prep work. This has become a game changer in the trade industry. It keeps the dust out of your home and keeps the air quality safer for us and your household.
Preparation Is Everything
The key to a beautiful paint job starts with the the proper foundation of prep work. We take the extra time to thoroughly inspect walls and address the areas that need extra attention. We patch and sand the dings, nicks and scratches and give the walls an overall sanding to ensure smooth walls by removing small bumps, drips or runs that may be present in the previous coatings. Trim work and doors are sanded and gaps and cracks in moldings, trim work and baseboards are caulked to give a seamless transition between surfaces.
High Quality Paints Applied With Care And Skill For An Impeccable Finish
A premium quality interior paint that is suitable for the specific surface will be applied. We take pride in creating smooth walls free of drips and rolling lines. Our cut in lines are straight and trim work is showcased with a beautiful finish. We apply two coats of paint to the walls, trim work and ceilings. Rarely is it acceptable to use only one coat of paint. In some cases an extreme colour change may require a primer or three coats of paint.
We are continually checking our own work as we go and do a full inspection before we consider our job done. Before we leave and request payment we have the customer do a walk through to ensure everything is to their satisfaction.
Final Clean Up
Our professionalism doesn’t end with the painting. One of the most frequent compliments we get is about how tidy we leave the job site. When we leave at the end of the job you should hardly know we were there. If there is any debris it is cleaned, vacuumed or swept up. Garbage is removed and empty paint cans are taken away to be recycled.
From Our Customers
“We had Parnell Painting repaint our large home prior to moving in. We found them to be very knowledgeable with respect to colour and paint choice as well as the impact of light on colour. They were efficient, reliable, personable and meticulous in cleaning up each day. The paint job was well done. We would not hesitate to use them again.”

We will certainly recommend you to our friends and family!”
Sheila and Morgan Parry
We were so lucky to have found Jack and Audrey of Parnell Painting to do the major interior rooms of our house. With the wet weather in the spring they were able to fit us in right away when we were expecting to wait until fall. The estimate and time of job were accurate, they were professional, helpful, neat, meticulous and just a pleasure to deal with! I would highly recommend Parnell Painting and will contact them again when we are ready to paint the rest of our house. Thanks Jack and Audrey!

What The Customer Can Do Prior To Our Arrival
We will assist with any heavy or large items below if necessary, otherwise we would ask that our customers prepare for our arrival by doing the following:
- Remove pictures and other decorative items from the walls and store them out of the painting area.
- Safely store away delicate or sentimental items out of the painting area.
- Take items off mantels, shelving and counters that are against the walls.
- Remove smaller decorative items and lamps or group them together in a spot that won’t impede with painting.
- Remove the contents from large book cases and display cabinets that need to be moved.
- Depending on the size and layout of the room the large furniture can stay in place or be pushed to the center of the rooms. We’ll inform you how much space we need to paint.
- Unless we’ve specifically said they can stay in place, remove area rugs.
- If closets are being painted remove clothing and all other belongings.
- Take down curtains and store them away or lay them over large furniture. We will take down blinds if they need to come out of the windows.
- Remove bath mats, towels and accessories from bathrooms.
- It’s helpful if the floors are vacuumed or swept prior to our arrival, paying attention to any debris that might be up against the baseboards if they are being painted.
Our customers can feel free to contact us prior to the start of the interior painting or during the process if they have questions or concerns. We are happy to discuss them with you.
