When we are finished, we wipe off any splatters that may have fallen on baseboards, re-cut the those same baseboards if needed, touch up any light spots that might be showing through, and pull up any tape, tarps or plastic that's been used. Finally, we do a detailed inspection with you to be sure your happy with our work and the results.

Painting the interior walls of your home is one of the least expensive ways to impact not only the look and beauty of your home, but the mood. Make the inside of your home the best place to be on earth—with wall colors that are warm and inviting, and that enhance and compliment your decor. We're great with color and would love to help you with color choices that can make the interior of your home warmly flow together from room to room. Call us!
The trim in your home serves many purposes, but mostly to accent and frame the colors on your walls. Trim is like the outline of a picture in a coloring book. When done right, trim should look fresh, clean and precise, causing the color on your walls to look their best. We love interior painting, and it will show when we're finished!
At Calhoun Painting we use a superior Sherwin-Williams paint product—ProClassic—to ensure beauty and lasting durability when painting trim. We also go to great lengths to "cut-in" the trim so that paint lines between trim and walls are precise, straight and professional looking. After all, we want your home to look its best!
We also test your existing paint finish to ensure we don't put latex paint over oil, which would result in poor adhesion and become cause for a lot of problems and unnecessary expense.
We Proudly Use
Faux Impressions™ Latex Glaze
The various effects available from Faux Impressions ™ Latex Glaze are accomplished by applying 1 or more layers of colored glaze over a base coat. Since the Latex Glaze is translucent (tinting creates a transparent glaze and mixing with paint creates a semi-opaque glaze), the basecoat color influences the finished appearance. It is a recommended practice to preview color choices on a 2 ft by 2 ft practice board prior to painting your project area.

Wallpaper removal is a funny thing—sometimes it comes right off and sometimes its a nightmare to remove. You never really know what you're getting into or which way its going to go until you begin the process. And if not done properly, it can additional expense to repair and smooth damaged walls.
As professional wallpaper removal contractors, Calhoun Painting can help you assess what needs to be done, and advise you on the best options to go with. We will figure up how much its likely to cost to remove it, including any anticipated costs of wall repairs if needed—so there are no surprises with the costs.
If the wallpaper is stuck to the wall so that its going to take a lot of labor and expense to remove it, we can often float the wallpaper seams smooth, and just paint over it—saving you money. And you'll never know its there.
We also can put up wallpaper if that's the way you want to go.

We Pepare the Room
we begin painting a room, we properly prepare it. We
remove all pictures, mirrors and mobile shelving from the walls. We
will leave hooks or nails if you plan on putting things back up where
they were, so you don't have to re-center them, or we can pull them and fill the holes. We remove the light switches and plug plates. And we move furniture to the center of
the room and cover it with plastic. Then we lay drop cloths down over
Then We Prepare the Surfaces
being by using sheetrock mud to repair and fill any holes, dents,
cracks, or crevices, so when we're done painting the walls are
restored to a smooth surface. Any wall or ceiling stains are primed
with stain killer to ensure they won't reappear.
Gaps between trim and walls or between walls and ceiling are all caulked
and smoothed. We sand the walls if needed, and wipe down baseboards to ensure smooth finishes.
We begin painting by cutting-in
between the ceiling and walls, and then around the walls and trim, working
our way down from top to bottom. This is done by experienced
craftsman painters with a steady hand, who pay close attention to
details and ensure precision paint lines, with no overlap between
wall and trim colors. Once cutting-in is complete, and while the edges are still damp,
another painter rolls the walls, getting as close to the trim edges as
possible to ensure no flashing when the paint dries, and to ensure proper coverage. A second coat guarantees a beautiful appearance and long lasting durability.
