If there's one thing I know for sure, after working as a Painting Contractor for nearly 20 years, it's this: We can do the best job in the world, but if the clients don't like the colors, it's not going to matter at all.
In this weeks video, I talk about the Only 2 Things That Matter when repainting your house. And even though, those 2 things will apply to anyone, the details will change completely from one person to another :)
Are you the Contractor on the project (without realizing it)?
I believe that every clients' needs are unique and some may be better served hiring one or the other. However, I often see people hiring Painters... thinking they had hired a Painting Contractor. The reason this happens so often is because the differences are not always easy to spot.
That's why, in this weeks video, I'm talking about the KEY DIFFERENCE between the two :)
When I was 23 years old, I lost $50 000 on one job...
To say that this was a challenging time would be a major understatement. And honestly, I still find myself surprised that I stayed in the painting business after that.
But one thing I can honestly tell you today is that I would not change any of it... HONESTLY! :)
In this weeks video, I share with you the lesson I learned from this $50 000 mistake and why it's the reason you're now receiving these videos of mine :)
It's not always easy to accurately visualize a space painted with a color from a small paint swatch.
There seems to be this notion that the paint will dry darker once applied to your walls. And even though this may be true for some, it is not an absolute truth.
In this weeks video, you'll learn why the answer to this question is both, YES and NO. :)
If your house has been on the market for a while (and not selling) or you're thinking about putting it up for sale sometimes soon, here are 3 things to consider to help you determine if you should invest in Painting to help SELL YOUR HOUSE:
1- Are the colors dated?
2- Are there visible cracks and dings in your walls?
3- Are you in a Buyers market or Sellers market?
For this weeks video, I'll help you answer those questions and also give you a few additional tips to help you create a great first impression for those potential buyers :)
About a year ago, I updated our company slogan to:
Change Your COLORS. Change Your LIFE.
But recently, I've been asked by a few people "Do you honestly believe that?"
So for this weeks video, I decided to answer this question for you... and my answer may surprise you (I know it usually surprises the people I share it with) :)
One thing I often hear people say is this "The color didn't turn out at all like I thought it would. WHY?!" (followed by expressions of frustration or discouragement).
The reality is that there's a lot of things that can impact how we view and interpret the colors on our walls. During the next 4 weeks, I'm going to show you concrete visual examples of why certain colors may not have turned out exactly like you had imagined they would.
In this weeks video, I'll show you the most common mistake I'm hearing about these days. I know the people who I've shown this during color consultations simply couldn't believe it! :)
For the past 2 weeks, I've been talking about Color Mistakes... and this week is no different. In this video, I'll show you concrete evidence of just how much LIGHTING can affect color.
If you ask any Color Consultant, they'll most likely name LIGHTING as the most important element in choosing the right colors for your home.
