FAQ

1. During which period do you do exterior painting jobs?

The paint products we use can be applied at temperatures as low as 4 degrees Celsius. This means that we can normally paint outdoors in Montreal from April until beginning of November, depending on the climate.

2. During which period do you do interior painting jobs?

We do jobs all year except during the construction holiday (2 last weeks of July) and the Chriinterior painting stmas Holidays (from mid-December to mid-January). Normally, the exterior painting season starts in April.

3. Can I call for a paint job due tomorrow?

If you have a paint task that really needs to be done quickly, call us without hesitating! This could be your lucky day; we might just as well have the required staff on this specific day! We will be honest and we will tell you if it is not possible. But once we make a promise, we keep it! We always make sure we finish on-time once we sign the contract!

4. Are all of your painters certified?

Yes! Each Findécor painter is CCQ certified. Moreover, each one of them has at least 4 years of experience in the residential and commercial painting field.

5. Can you do an estimate without seeing the building?

Yes, we can do very good estimates based on good pictures. Please send us pictures by email, or give us the link of the website where we can see them.

6. DO YOU ALWAYS PUT 2 COATS OF PAINT?

The number of required paint coats depends on several factors: the main one is the used method. Typically, the spray painting gun method only asks for one coat of paint. The thickness of the coat is of 7 to 10 microns, depending on the product’s viscosity.

7. WILL THE PAINT BE MORE DURABLE IF YOU PUT MANY COATS?

Contrary to popular belief, 2 coats are not more durable than one. A paint job durability depends surface adherence, quality of the product used, the thickness of the coat, and the tools used.

8. DO YOU ALWAYS APPLY PRIMER?

Applying a primer is rarely necessary for a high quality work. First, primer is not less expensive than paint. Second, the work is done in less time if you don’t use primer, as the painters won’t need to wash their brushes and rollers between the coats if they only apply 2 coats of the same paint product. Acrylic paints are very adherent, and we always use high quality products, like the Aura from Benjamin Moore. L’apprêt est seulement utile dans certains cas particuliers, comme pour peindre par-dessus une surface peinte à la peinture à l’huile.
