We’ve tried to answer the questions most commonly asked by our customers. However, if after you’ve read through the FAQs here you still need answers, please feel free to call our office. We will do our best to assist you.
The last painter we hired would work for a few days, then be gone for a couple of days, always starting and stopping. Will you stay on the job once you begin?
Yes. We’ll stay with the project and work until your painting is complete. The same crew will work on your job from start to finish because we assign different crews to different jobs.
We have a staff of 14-18 painters. Our most tenured painter has been with the company 13 years. The average industry experience of our painters is 6 years. Peterson Painting uses the “lead painter” system. Each of our lead painters manages a set crew of 2 –3 painters. Although crew members change from time to time, the continuity this system offers has many advantages. For example, they are more productive and efficient as a team because they understand each other’s style and skills.
About ninety percent of the time we use Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, and Glidden’s highest quality paint. However, the brand of paint we use can be influenced by other factors including customer preference, the nature of the project, and other bid specifications.

The level of thoroughness, attention to detail, and quality desired, usually determines the cost of a job. For example, it costs more to properly prepare a surface for painting than to give it a “quick once over.” We would be happy to review, in detail, our calculations for your project so you can make a fair comparison with other bids.
