Are painting quotes free? Do you require a deposit?

Palmetto Prode Painting provides free quotes in writing, after the owner and/or job foreman visits the jobsite to review the project.  You do not need to be present for us to work up a proposal for exterior jobs, and we will contact you if we have any questions regarding the work.  For interior painting jobs we like to meet with you in person to discuss the scope of the project room by room.  Within 1-2 days we will send you a detailed proposal via email outlining the job.  Prices include all materials and labor.  Once we receive your signed Contract Palmetto Pride Painting will schedule your job. We typically do not require a deposit and payment is due in full upon completion.  Most of our customers pay by check or cash, payable to Palmetto Pride Painting.  We also accept major credit cards.

How does Palmetto Pride Painting operate? What are the steps?

 We generally bring our fully equipped, custom-fitted Haulmark trailer to the jobsite and often it will remain onsite until the work has been completed.  An experienced, hands-on foreman will oversee your project with a checklist for every stage of the job to ensure that no steps are missed. The basic steps include covering your floors and other surfaces with drop cloths and plastic sheeting.  Then comes the prep work and any repair work required to ensure a smooth surface, and finally the finish coat is applied.  Upon completion, the leader will walk you through to ensure 100% satisfaction that the job has been completed to your specifications.

How quickly can you get to my job? Does someone need to be there while the work is being done?

Most jobs will generally begin 1-3 weeks after we receive your signed Contract. Palmetto Pride Painting will work with you to accommodate your timeline.  Once you are scheduled on our calendar, we can assure you that we’ll show up prepared and on time, as promised.  In the event of inclement weather for exterior painting projects, we will let you know when to expect us to resume the job.  Should you need to reschedule our services, simply call us 24 hours in advance, at 843-693-3924.  Our painters are licensed, bonded, and insured and you do not to be there while our painters are working.  For added security we can put a lock box on your door if you are out of town or unavailable to let us in.

What do I need to do before the painters arrive?

 Prior to your painting service, we ask that you move valuable, fragile or breakable items, art work and window treatments when possible.  We will cover and protect floors, countertops, cabinets, windows, shrubs, screens, and other surfaces not designated to receive paint.  We will move furniture and/or art work if needed, and move everything back into place upon completion.  Please secure your pets or small children, as painters will need to move freely in and out of the property throughout the duration of your painting project.

Can I trust the painters?

Our employees are five-star, fully-qualified professionals.  Palmetto Pride Painting is licensed, bonded and insured for your protection and ours.  We only employ painters who are reliable and trustworthy and who have years of knowledge and experience in the field.  The painters are carefully screened and selected for their expertise and skills.  They are organized and efficient, trustworthy, courteous, and pet-friendly too!   A tidy jobsite is maintained throughout the duration of your job, and we treat your home as if it were our own.

Can Palmetto Pride Painting help select paint colors and finishes? What paint do you use?

Our designer is available to make color suggestions and recommendations, free of charge upon a signed contract.  We provide oversized color samples to help visualize the end result and to determine how colors will look in different lighting conditions. Whether the look you’re after is refined and traditional or upbeat and contemporary, Palmetto Pride Painting can help find the perfect color combination to enhance your home or business.  We use highly-rated Sherwin-Williams paints, stains and finishes.  Should you opt to supply the paint and materials, please have supplies ready and on hand when our workers arrive for your job.

I have received several bids from different painting contractors. What accounts for the price differences?

There are a number of good painting contractors to choose from and normally you will find that the established, reputable companies are fairly close in price. However, you may also get an estimate that is a lot lower than others, and there could be many factors at play. Is the company licensed, bonded and insured?  Does the company pay worker’s comp and general liability?  Are the workers trustworthy and experienced?  When deciding to go with the lowest bid, all too often clients end up frustrated when workers fail to show as promised, the worksite isn’t properly maintained, or the paint quality is poor and unprofessional.  Often times spending a bit more to spare yourself the headache and frustration, or worse yet, having to pay another company to do fix another’s mistake, is well worth the higher price.  Palmettto Pride Painting takes PRIDE in satisfied customers and takes PRIDE in a job done right.  So give us a call, 843-693-3924, and let our experienced painters make your home or property shine!
