Interior house painting in North Attleborough, MA

Jcb Painting logo.

When I first started painting I thought I knew how to paint. (doesn't everyone?)  In order to paint well you have to use the proper tools, i.e. good brushes and roller knaps, not the cheap ones. If you go the cheap route the job will be much harder to do. It also makes sense to spend the extra money for premium paints. Because you really do get what you pay for and the paint job will look much better than if you used cheap stuff. Trust me.

You need a good eye for cutting in, a steady hand to get those straight paint lines and quite a bit of knowledge. 

No two paint jobs are the same. They are all different in some way. Some are easy to do, and some harder to do.

With all the products associated with painting, paints, stains, varnishes, lacquers, etc, you have to be part chemist and painter at the same time. 

You have to know what to do first and what to do last to insure a great paint job. And after decades of painting homes and businesses in southeastern Massachusetts we have that experience. We are always on time, neat, and trustworthy.  

When Jcb Painting comes to the job we set up for the day. We cover all floors and furniture. We move all furniture away from the walls and sweep and vacuum the area that will be worked that day.
Prepping  and cutting in the bedroom for painting.
We then proceed to prep the area, caulking baseboard and trim neatly, and patching and sanding the walls to get ready for painting. (painting is the easy part!)

We prime and paint the ceilings first and then prime and paint all the woodwork, (doors, windows, baseboard, all trim) then we paint the walls. 

At the end of the day, if the room isn't finished, we clean up again (sweeping, vacuuming) and put the room back in order so it can still be used. We only disrupt the area while we are working.

Interior Painting in Mansfield, MA.

Jcb Painting got the call to come and fix this room that had all the paint peeling off the walls. The OTHER previous painting contractor did not properly prep the room after removing wallpaper and the paint they applied just peeled off after about 6 months.The other painting company failed to sand off all the the glue and bits of paper left over after removing wall paper and didn't even prime the walls. Total failure.

Interior painting and wallpaper removal in Foxborough, MA.

removing wallpaper
Removing wallpaper chair rail in this dining room in Foxborough, MA.

This wallpaper came off easy. The top layer was a vinyl type and
came off in perfect sheets. The backing in this image also came off
easy after wetting it down with just warm water.
This is some of the easiest wallpaper I have ever removed. Yea!

After wallpaper removal we patch and sand the wall to remove any
other bits of paper debris to get ready for the finish coats.

Interior house painting in Foxborough, MA,

The finished bathroom paint job.After images from my last bathroom paint job in Foxborough, MA. What usually takes 2 days to do, painting from baseboard to ceiling, took 4 days because this bathroom was in poor shape. A big contributor of the mold and paint failure was not using the ceiling fan. 
The wall color is "la paloma gray" by Benjamin Moore.

Jcb Painting caulked all around the shower enclosure to keep
moisture from seeping under the paint and causing a paint failure after using the shower.

The bottom line here is always use your ceiling fan to exhaust the moisture
in the air after using the shower. Keep it on for at least 15 minutes.

Bathroom prepping before painting.

This is what happens when your bathroom isn't properly prepped and painted. Priming and caulking would have prevented this and saved the homeowner money when they hired Jcb Painting to fix it. 
The original paint job had a really bad caulking job around the vanity and along the baseboard which Jcb Painting had to completely remove and redo. Where the other painter should have absolutely caulked was around the shower enclosure as you can see from the images. 
This bathroom will be finished next Tuesday. Stay tuned.

Mold removal and painting in North Attleboro, MA.

mold growing on a ceiling in a bathroom in North Attleboro, MA.
This is what happens when you don't use the ceiling exhaust fan in
your bathroom. You get mold. And it just keeps getting worse.
Then when it has to be painted you have to pay more money
and time to get the job done, even if you do it yourself.
after mold reduction and finish painting.
Jcb Painting works on a lot of Bathrooms and very often
when we come to look at the paint job, mold is an issue because
the exhaust ceiling fan is hardly used or not at all. Before using the shower the ceiling fan should be turned on and kept on for at least 15 minutes after to exhaust the moisture from the air. So the lesson here is, use your bathroom fan. It's there for a purpose.

After wallpaper border removal

This is the room after the wallpaper border was removed in North Attleborough, MA.
It took a lot longer to finish than expected but Jcb Painting prevailed. The walls below the border
were also in rough shape, but after a lot of patching and sanding they came out
beautiful. The hardwood floor will be refinished also.

Wall paper border removal.

Wall paper removal in North Attleboro, MA.
Not all wall paper is the same when it comes to removal. Usually the top layer is the most difficult and the backing is the easiest to remove after wetting it down.

But on this job it was the opposite. The backing was extremely difficult to remove. The original installer must have used a lot more paste than was necessary to apply this wall paper border.
Paper backing after removing top layer of wall paper.
After removal of wall paper, Jcb Painting, machine sanded to remove all left over bits of paper and glue, patched and sanded again and then primed and painted. It's tough to price this kind of job. You never know what to expect.
No two wall paper borders are the same when it comes time to remove for painting. It's a lot of physical work plus a lot of clean up. One of the hardest things to do when painting a room.

Home office painting.

home office painting

Here is  a scenario Jcb Painting comes  upon these days  when contracted to paint a home office. Before we can begin painting the space we first have to move furniture. Then there is the input and output peripherals attached to the computers and other electronics.

This  can be a delicate procedure. In order to paint the area most of the connections  have to be disconnected and then reconnected after the painting is  finished. Jcb Painting has a  lot of experience doing this.

 home office painting 2

First we take closeup pictures of all the inputs and outputs  before disconnecting for reference, so when we reconnect all peripherals, everything works as it did before we got there.

On this paint job we have 2 computers, 2 monitors, 1 printer, TVspeakers, sound bar, woofer, cables, extension cords, router, and many wires to be moved.

As we start to disconnect we clean all dust off of wires and cables, then move everything out of the way to paint. Then vacuum and prep the area to be painted.

After the painting is donewe reconnect all electronics. 
No need for the geek squad here.

This is another painting service that Jcb Painting provides to its customers.
