Painting Tips

How much paint to buy
We recommend one gallon for every 400 square feet. Textured, rough or unprimed surfaces may require more.

Eco-friendly paint/Chemical sensitivity
If there is a person or issue with any chemical sensitivity please advise before any work is to commence at your location. All paint manufacturers have different versions of low or no-VOC's paints and we will accommodate to the best of our ability. Choose paint with low VOC’s - these are often identified with a green seal. Ask Gothamhill about “green painting” products for your home or business in Binghamton.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when I ask for an estimate for painting services?
Following our on-site consultation and discussion of your painting project, Gothamhill provides a printed estimate that encompasses the scope of work, pricing and work specifications.

How long after the estimate does painting begin?
This mainly depends upon the customers needs and schedule limitations. Exterior work in the northeastern United States is very subject to weather conditions and always subject to change. If there are any changes to the schedule that isn't obvious (it's raining) we will let you know ASAP. Scheduling does not start until receipt of signed contract.
