Yes, that is my family – well, most of them.  From time to time I get asked, “All they all yours.”  

I usually say, “Well most of them, I left the ugly ones at home.”

Some people have told me I am quiet and don’t talk much.  But, when it comes to paint, I just can’t contain myself – so I started this blog to keep from talking everyone’s ears off!  I try to write about the questions I get the most so you can find answers while your in your pajamas relaxing at home.  Feel free to call me anytime, I am always willing to tell you about anything I know about paint.  In the meantime, you might be able to find in here.  If you have ideas for me to write about, feel free to email them to office@indianapainting.com.

Most of the time, all you need to do is pressure wash, spot prime with a DTM (direct to metal) primer and paint with a good grade exterior...

How much will it cost to paint my restaurant?

How much will it cost to paint my restaurant?

Of all the commercial spaces we paint, restaurants present the most challenges, but this is why you need to hire a specialist. First, most restaurants are open for more hours than retail - often from 6am to around 9pm. This leaves a narrow window of 10pm to 5am for painting. Second, restaurants are not configured in ways that make easy access to walls and soffits. Finally, but not the least of the restaurant entrepreneurs concerns, is what type of paint should be used and how much will it cost...
