Paints used on new and existing buildings are sometimes referred to as “architectural coatings,” although this term is rarely used outside of the industry anymore. Before 1950, the majority of paints used on the interior or exterior walls of a building were oil-based. Some advancements were made in the industry during this time period, which resulted in quality water-based paints becoming more affordable and popular among individuals and industry professionals. Today, the vast majority of paints used in buildings will be water-based. One may still find oil-based paints, but they tend to be used for specific applications, such as paint furniture items. Water-based paints offer many advantages compared to their oil-based counterparts. They’re a lot easier to clean off rollers and brushes. They’re good for the environment too. Oil is a volatile compound and gets released into the atmosphere as the paint dries. It reacts with sunlight to form smog, which had become a concern in big cities 40 years ago. Water-based paint doesn’t have this problem and complies with all clean air and environmental guidelines.
Many of our customers who have a preference for a particular type or brand of paint, especially if they have extensive experience with home renovation themselves. The Samm Services team will happily use your own paints if you prefer.
We never use subcontracted labor. We have our own fully trained staff of full-time painters. A project manager works with you from the beginning to the end of your project.

Why is there such a large difference in price from one painter to the next? Doesn’t every painter do the same thing?
The Scope Of Work outlines in detail what the contractor intends to do in each phase of the job to provide you with your finished painting project. Without a Scope Of Work in writing from your contractor, you will have no way of being certain that they intend to follow all of the necessary steps to do the work correctly, and you will also have no means of accurately comparing their bid with the others that you receive. Make sure that each contractor who provides you with a bid for your project includes a written Scope Of Work with their proposal.
Our estimators are highly-experienced and trained to guide you through the process step-by-step. A typical consultation will take about 30 minutes to complete. When your estimator comes to meet with you, they will walk the project with you to gather all of the information necessary to prepare your proposal. They will listen to your concerns, discuss your options, and offer suggestions that will help you to create your perfect painting project.

The length of a project varies. Most of the residential painting we do can be completed in less than a week; however, we routinely have large residential projects that require more time. Commercial painting projects can take longer, depending on the size of the building(s) and the scope of work. Throughout the entire project, we make sure to keep you very informed of the timeline. If we think the project may take longer than anticipated, we let you know right away. Be wary of painting contractors that tell you they can start your job right away and have your job completed very quickly! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. They are likely cutting corners and you’ll see it in your final product and longevity of the work performed.
