Interior Painting Preparation Checklist

Our Interior Painting Preparation Checklist will help you with your painting project.

  • Remove wall hangings.
  • Remove valuables and decorations.
  • Move furniture to the center of the room, at least 3 ft away from walls.
  • Ensure that your color and sheen selection is turned in via email or mail.*
  • You will not have access to the room that will be painted, arrange to be in a different room.
  • Arrange for children and pets to be away from the areas to be painted.
  • If hiring multiple contractors, it is best to have painters last so that your new paint job does not get ruined. Carpet installation is the exception.

 

*You can email your color and sheen selection to corina@sunwestpainting.net with the address of the project as the Subject line.
If mailing in your selection please mail it to 6288 San Ignacio Ave STE B San Jose, CA 95119
Please choose colors and sheen by the Friday before your project begins.

 

If you have an Exterior Painting Project to be completed refer to our Exterior Painting/Pressure Washing Checklist.

Exterior Painting/ Pressure Washing Checklist

Pressure Washing/Exterior Painting Checklist

Please refer to our Pressure Washing Checklist so we can ensure that your home is protected against water damage.

  • Make sure that all doors and windows are closed, so water does not come in.
  • Windows and screens are softly rinsed off. If no one is able to be home, leave all gates unlocked for access. (Worker will ring your bell to check in with homeowner).
  • Make sure all bushes are trimmed so we have enough space to work in tight areas. When using ladders, employee security comes first.
  • Move all items away from walls like grills and other items.
  • If you have pets, please plan accordingly.
  • If your exterior door is scheduled to be painted, we need access to paint it on the last day of your painting project.
  • Door(s) to remain open until paint is dry. Excluded: stain doors, unless specific request and pricing was provided and
    approved.
  • Please let us know the location of home security cameras and alarm sensors¬†(sometimes are hidden)so we may protect them against water or paint.

Note: Pressure wash day is the deadline to send colors and sheen so we can place a store order and have paint delivered.
Not all lines may apply to you. Please disregard if so.
