Details Are Vital to Great Painting
Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Thursday, March 14, 2013
You might ask what separates the good from the bad in residential and commercial painting, and I could offer up any number factors. But I like to think that one in particular is perhaps the most vital. Details.
A slapdash job by a fly-by-night contractor will leave work absent of details. And what is a home or commercial business owner's main concern? The details. Day in and day out they will be the ones living in the space and seeing the work. They are the ones who will be staring at the walls one afternoon and then see a lack of detail on a stained finish. This will cause them no shortage of frustration—and rightly so.
At Sundeleaf we place a high emphasis on fastidious detail. It's a cliché to say that any job worth doing is worth doing well, but in painting it is absolutely vital. And it takes more than just painting “well”. The difference between good and bad is night and day. The difference between good and excellent is details.
Any painter worth his salt will value the details. And the will do this not only for the customer's satisfaction, which is obvious, but because the painter must also love the work.
