What we do differently


We will not sub your home out to another contractor

Almost all of our clients ask:  “do you sub-out the painting?”

To ensure the best outcome, Elegant Painting® prefers to keep all aspects of your project in-house, avoiding the drawbacks of subcontracting.

By outsourcing the painting to a third-party contractor, a company risks delegating important responsibilities to someone who may not have the same level of quality standards. This can cause discrepancies in the final result, prolonged completion times, and an absence of accountability. Furthermore, relying on multiple contractors to paint one house can result in communication breakdowns, leading to misunderstandings and a poor customer experience.


Employment screening

We are vigilant about the people we allow near our family.

Conducting background checks on our painters is a top priority. We believe that it is essential to ensure the safety and security of our clients and their homes. Our background checks help us to screen out individuals with a history of criminal activities, such as theft or assault and ensure that we are hiring only trustworthy and reliable individuals. Additionally, background checks provide us with important information about our painters’ level of experience and qualifications


No contractor-grade paints

We know your goal is to paint less often. 

Premium-grade paints offer higher quality and durability compared to contractor-grade paints. They contain more pigment and resin, which results in a better, smoother, and more even finish. They also have better resistance to fading, chipping, and peeling, ensuring that the paint job will last longer.  Additionally, premium paints have a better color consistency, which is important for achieving a uniform and professional look. Overall, using premium-grade paints provides a better value for the money spent, as they provide a more durable, long-lasting, and attractive finish.

Multiple layers of insurance
