Has this ever happened to you?
You picked a color to paint your walls... BUT once it was all painted, it looked different than you expected?
If so, you're certainly not alone.
If fact, this is one of the most frustrating (and painful) part of the repainting process.
Which is why we have taken it upon ourselves to dig deep to understand what causes this... and better yet, how to avoid this situation for our clients.
In this video, I'll share with you the 3 STEPS we take with our clients to make sure that the COLOR they have in their mind, is the COLOR that will appear on their walls once it's all said and done.
There's a vicious cycle happening these days in the Painting Industry that I want to address before it gets out of hands.
Here's the thing...
Paint is not a simple product... far from that.
In fact, some products require years of research and development from highly advanced chemists (often very large teams of chemists) to make it possible for Paint to perform at high levels while being compliant with today's strict environmental regulations.
And depending on the clients needs... and who is going to be applying the paint (a "DIY" or Professional Painter as an example), the "right" paint for the project might be two completely different products.
So where am I going with this?
Well this is such a touchy subject to tackle since "fixing" this vicious cycle will require all parties involved to work together.
Be sure to watch this weeks video in full for a better understanding of the situation and how I propose we can start changing things around.
There's a lot of items that will typically get added on the TO-DO LIST when buying a new house.

2 MINUTES LATE: “Are you almost here?”
6 MINUTES LATE: “Everyone is here! Where are you?”
13 MINUTES LATE: “Did you forget about the meeting?”
20 MINUTES LATE: “Is everything okay, Remi?”
This was a training exercise that our team never forgot…
One of the things that I’m known for is my punctuality. It’s not uncommon for clients to tell me “My gosh, when you say 1:30pm you really mean 1:30pm!”
TIME is a commodity I put a high value on both for others and myself.
So when I told my team “today’s meeting is particularly important so please make sure to be here by 3pm and don’t be late”… NO ONE was late… except for me!
You see, back in the summer of 2009 we had started to meet every Monday afternoons at 3:30pm for some coaching, bonding & to basically give everyone a chance to voice their concern or offer solutions to existing problems...
Be sure to watch this week's Tips & Tricks video where we'll first show you how this is done using only a paint brush... and then discuss the theory of how this works so you can have a better understanding of your paint brush and how to get the most out of it.
Many people wonder how you could use a roller to paint a colonial door. The concern being the grooves in the door and the kind of finish a roller would create on such a surface.
