Interior house painting in North Attleborough, MA

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 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.

We see this type of bathroom paint failure quite often. We will be doing mold remediation also.
