Frequently Asked Questions

At A colorful World we understand when it comes to getting work done on your home you may have a lot of question. We are happy to help you with them. Here are a couple of the most common questions asked referring to Custom Painting, Faux Finishing and Custom Mouldings.

Q: How long should I wait to paint my new house?
Years ago I would have said wait at least 6 to 12 months for the house to settle. Nail pops were a big problem in the first year. Now the sheetrock in most newer houses are done with screws. This changes that time line, as you don't get nail pops with screws. We do a lot of houses now in most cases before the furniture and window treatments go up.

Q: What type of finish should I use on my walls and trim?
We use Semi-Gloss on all the trim, Eggshell enamel on all the walls and flat finish on all ceilings. This is just on base painting. Then when a faux is put on top we use pearl and metallic finishes as well.


Q: Do I have to hire someone to caulk and paint my trim after you install it?
Not at all. We are a full service company. We install the trim (crown, chair rail etc.) and we caulk and paint it as well. No need to hire someone else to finish the job. People love that about us. It saves you frustration, time and money.


 Q: Will you help me with the color selection in my house?
Yes we will. Anyone who decides to hire us get free color consolation. This can also save you a lot of money and help assure you get the right colors the first time. We paint a lot of homes and know what is hot and what is not. We also see a lot of finished projects and know what colors go in your rooms and we know how to work with open landscapes.


Q: Do I have to move furniture take down window treatments before you come?
We will take care of everything for you. We have special furniture moving pads for both carpet and bare floors. We also remove any window treatment and pictures etc. When the job is complete we put everything back. The only thing we ask is if you have breakables please take them down and put them in a safe place for us before we start in that room.
