Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long is Vivax’s interior painting estimate process?

Our estimate process varies from 90-120 minutes, depending on the scope of work as well as questions you may have and if you would like help choosing colors!

  • Do I need my colors picked out beforehand?

If you have color ideas in mind then great! We would love to help you narrow your selection down. If you are starting from scratch no worries we are here to help. 

  • What kind of paint do you use?

We use Sherwin Williams- Super Paint for walls and Solo for baseboards. Our standard sheen is satin for the walls and ceiling and semi-gloss for trim and doors.

  • Do we need to be home during the process?

You do not! We only need you home for the initial and final walk throughs with our Project Managers.

  • How long does an interior project usually take?

 I will give them a window of time at the estimate based on their scope of work but their project manager gives them a better timeline when he does his initial walk through.

  • What do we need to do before you get there?

We ask our clients to have their home prepped as best to their ability, including moving all furniture into the center of the room (so we can cover everything in plastic) and have all hanging items (including blinds) removed from the walls. For a small fee, we can help move large and cumbersome items for you!

  • Do you stain cabinets or any wood accents?

At this time, we do not offer cabinet or refinishing services. We are happy to bid out a stain-to-paint project so please let us know when setting your appointment if you would like pricing on this!

  • Do you install any trim or can you do woodwork?

We are not able to install any new wood work or trim at this time. We CAN paint new trim/wood so please let us know during your appointment and we can tell you more about the process.

  • Do you spray or hand roll the paint?

We use a variety of methods, based around the scope of work, size of space, and preference of both client and crew.

  • Do you clean up everyday of the project?

For projects that last more than 1 day (which is 99% of them!), we do NOT take down any coverings, masking, or paper at the end of each day. Once the project is complete, we will remove all of the prep materials and we STRONGLY recommend you hiring a cleaning service once we finish as this is a CONSTRUCTION site.

  • What does your warranty cover?

Our interior projects come with a 1 year workmanship and product warranty that covers any touch ups that you may need. 

  • What time of the year is the best to paint interior?

We paint interior year round! Anytime is best!

  • Do you repair drywall?

Our crews can do repairs up to the size of the fist. Anything bigger should refer to a drywall company.
