We are happy to follow your own desired sequencing, but honestly painting is considered a finish trade and we prefer to be the last contractors in. Flooring installations in our experience cause more damage to fresh paint, especially along floorboards, and often require a lot of touch ups which your flooring contractor will not complete. Part of our everyday process is to protect your floor and surrounding areas from any paint and we would handle your new flooring with that same attention to detail.
Typically, we like to work from the top to the bottom. If you are getting a full repaint, we would start on the top floor and work our way down to the basement. Ceilings usually get painted first, then trim, followed by the walls. However, sequencing is handled per job and we are happy to work with you on what sequencing works best. This can be discussed prior to your job start but is typically done the day of your job kick off.
We ask that you move all furniture away from the walls and gather them as tightly together in the middle so that we can cover and protect them. If you start to move your furniture and notice a bit of dust build up along floorboards, trim or along the walls go ahead and wipe those down for us. That being said, don’t stress about having a squeaky clean house, just do your best to help us out when you see an opportunity.
Yes. We ask that you take everything off your walls prior to us arriving on site. You can leave the hook or nail if you plan to hang items back in their original spot. Remove hooks if you want us to fill the hole and paint over it.
Yes, everything should be removed from the areas that we are painting. If you need assistance, let us know so we can plan accordingly. We are happy to help for a nominal fee.
Yes, paint and food are not a good combination. We ask that you remove everything and gather it together so that we can protect it using drop clothes and plastic.
If you are doing a color change then the switch plate covers should be removed. Luckily, this is part of our process and we will complete that for you.
We typically tape and mask around existing hardware. If you are replacing the hardware, then we can remove the existing for you.
We try not to be intrusive but there’s no way around it. Your home will become a construction site and there will be a disruption to your life while we are in there. With that in mind you are always welcome to use your kitchen as needed.
We broom clean and wipe down surfaces when we are done, however paint particulates and dust that are in the air from the project will continue to settle for a couple days...in particular, you may notice on horizontal surfaces like floors, countertops, handrails, tables, toilets etc. While we try out best to leave your home as clean as we can, after any size interior project you will likely need to wipe down or vacuum additional areas.
Please note, paint can take an additional day or so (more for cabinets) to fully cure, so if you notice a 'gritty' feeling on any freshly painted horizontal surfaces, it is likely that it caught some of those particulates and can be easily cleaned by using a damp cloth with water or Windex, no abrasive cleaners!
There are certain temperature restrictions and guidelines we must follow to ensure the paint cures properly. The general rule of thumb is that it needs to be above 40 degrees outside with overnight temps above freezing. The typical paint season here in Colorado runs from Spring through Fall pending appropriate weather. This is the best time to get your home’s exterior painted.
We will prepare the surface by power washing the exterior of the home and completing any repairs. Power washing and removing all the dirt from the exterior creates a clean surface for the paint to adhere to which will ensure you get a top-quality, long-lasting finish.
After the surface is clean, we must prepare it for paint. Paint does not adhere correctly to siding or wood that has rot or water damage. If you are doing the repairs yourself, be sure to have it complete before painting is applied.
This step could also include the following:
We protect all bushes, shrubbery, concrete patios, walkways, windows and roof lines as much as possible using tarps and plastic! However, in order to safely paint your home, we will need full access to all areas around the house.
We didn't make it 40 years without creating systems and processes that allow us to minimize impact on you and maximize efficiencies for us while at your home. In fact, our Owner has 4 children and a dog at home, we get it and don't want to cause any additional inconvenience for you. While we always maintain a strict focus on safety, you and your family will have full access to your home and yard throughout the project, with as minimal impact as possible. Simply stated, a standard home in the metro Denver area will take between 2-5 days depending on the size and scope of the project.
As you consider paint colors for your home’s exterior, stick with what you know and love! Your home is your largest investment and by choosing colors that look good and last longer you’re going to be doing more than just protecting your house, your increasing its value and stretching your dollar!

Most homeowners typically use a Satin Sheen on their homes exterior but we will consult with you on other options as/if needed. If you have any sheen questions, just let us know.
We use the industries best products from Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore and Behr. Your estimator will make suggestions on what products would be best for your home based on it’s condition, material and your overall wants and needs.
We paint by spray or brush/roller to all surfaces to achieve full coverage. Beware of painters who promise to apply only two coats. There are many instances where more than two coats are needed. Some painters will charge extra for these additional coats. Our company promises to not only apply the coatings to meet the manufacturers mil thickness requirements, but also to apply the new coatings to achieve full coverage of the old color at no additional charge.
Yes, we do cosmetic repairs necessary to ensure a quality paint job. Your estimator will discuss potential repairs on site during your estimate and let you know if there’s anything you would need to address separately due to it’s size, difficulty or concern. We strive to make the repair process as easy as possible for you and most of the time can complete while onsite.
We sure do! General painting procedure includes painting body, fascia, soffit and trim, including gutters, downspouts, garage doors and exterior side of previously painted doors per customer selected colors and paint scheme.

We do not require you to be on site during your project.

Your project manager will be on site and updating you with the crew’s progress. They will reach out as we are nearing completion to set up a time to do a final walk with you on site to ensure you are fully satisfied with the work.
No problem, part of our exclusive Service Guarantee allows you to cancel for no charge at any time and for any reason, no questions asked up to two days from your project start date.

Incredible customer experience! The entire process from scoping, planning, project management and delivery was flawless. Their team did fantastic work repainting the entire interior of my home and doing some drywall repair. Thanks Jordan, Eric and Trevor!
We worked with Colorado Painting to paint almost the entirety of the inside of our new condo. Of the 3 contractors we worked with during our remodel, Colorado Painting was the best. They did a full walk through with me, provided a detailed quote, and had great communication throughout the process. In addition, they were able to easily pivot when other contractors moved out our timeline. Once complete, we did a final walk through where items were addressed on the spot and we paid when the job was done. I can't recommend them enough. Use these guys if you want the job done well!
Eric R. was our estimator and he was great to work with. Saved me money by suggesting I might not need to replace my baseboards, paint would make them look great, and he was right! No other company did that when I mentioned replacing. I asked for a couple of changes to scope of work while trying to decide what exactly we'd have done, and he was responsive and accommodating. The crew was professional and highly skilled, and the owner of the company checked on progress during the project. The owner also did our final walk through. They were not the cheapest bid, but not the most expensive, and the communication and detailed estimate gave me confidence. Most importantly, my job turned out fantastic (main floor to upstairs hallway including stairs and ceilings)!!!
