Our Services

Services - Paint


In the paint business we've learned to balance the sentiment that the customer is always right with this guiding principle; the customer may not always be right.  Oftentimes a customer has been misinformed by some other source, be it a recommendation from a friend who did not know the details of the project, or the mountains of poor advice you can find online.  We understand this, so always ask the questions that can help save you time and money by getting the project started correctly.                                        

Paint is a product that is constantly evolving.  New technologies ensures better coverage and can allow for increasingly specialized uses.  Most customers enjoy the process of choosing colors but it's also important to weigh what you plan on painting, how durable you need the surface to be, and what you're painting over.  To give you the best recommendation, we'll find out if it's interior or exterior use.  Do you need a paint, a stain, a primer or a combo product? Do you want solvent or soap and water clean-up?  Do you want it to be environmentally friendly, Zero VOC, or Low VOC?                                                                                  

These questions tell us what's important.  For example, we'll know that if you want a paint that is virtually odorless, Zero VOC, and Zero emissions, you'll want Natura.  We'll then work with you to determine the best finish.  With over a dozen finish options from Flat to High Gloss, there will be one that perfectly matches your project goals.  Each of these questions help us understand what product and finish to recommend, achieving that highest level of satisfaction and the best value for your investment.  

Services - Window Treatments


There are a lot of options in window treatments these days, including where to buy them. With all the choices it is easy to get confused.  The Color Palette has the solutions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

Among the things  you should think about while considering window treatments is why you want them or what function they need to perform.  Privacy, sun protection, sun control?  What  is the desired effect when they are down?  Is energy efficiency a priority?  Honeycomb shades (sometimes referred to as cellular shades) offer the most energy efficiency, because of the cell shape that traps heat.  There are a handful of cellular shades to choose from, including single, double, or cell-within-a-cell such as Hunter Douglas Duettes.  Cellular shades are available in a black-out option for all of you that like (or need) to sleep during the day, as well as Top-Down/Bottom-up which allows you to option of blocking the lower portion of your window while still having views of the sky. If you want to be able to see through your shades and control the light that comes in, then a louver shading system might work best for you.  Wood and faux wood blinds, Silhouettes, and metals can all be tilted for sun control and still maintain an outside view.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

If you want a softer look, our fabric roman shades are available in beautiful fabrics.  Come in and take a look!
