Working as Tegrey Family of Coatings for 18+ years has taught us many things. One is the client needs to know where the paint for their project comes from, who gets it and what does it cost.
We can tell you our company will buy your paint for you and deliver it to your project location. In our initial interview with you, we will find the project to be painted, what it will require to complete it correctly and how much paint will be needed. These few simple questions answered, makes a difference on how your project is completed. The substrate that needs to be painted will require a certain paint formulated specifically for it. Drywall, concrete, wood or vinyl all require a deferent paint formula. The number of coats will require two coats of paint as specified by the PDCA (Painting, Decorating Contractors of America). Our National organization who also writes the standards for groups as the AIA. Often times, we need to apply a primer coat and or three coats for the best coverage. This determines the amount of paint we order and bring to the work site.
The estimate we provide you will contain the cost for all primers and paint we will need to complete your project. Any additional paint or color change will be added onto your invoice. The price we pay for your paint is discounted for us as we are a professional contractor using many hundreds of gallons of paint and primer each year. The cost of the paint is then added onto your estimate for your project. Our company does not add onto the cost of paint for your project. Often there are business who add onto the cost of materials as they believe it is a way to make additional profit. We also request the client not purchase their own paint, as they believe they are saving money on the project. This is almost never true. The discounts offered by paint companies are usually still less then our purchase price. We use only the highest grade of paints as we feel the project we complete meets our expectations as well as the clients.
We hope this answers your question about paint for your project. If at anytime you have questions or concerns about paint being included, feel free to contact us at http://www.tegreypainting.com Thank you.
