House Interior Painting Project In Northeast Ann Arbor

Painting The Finishing Touches On An Open-Concept Style Kitchen And Great Room In Ann Arbor

You can transform a room, even an entire interior, by repainting it (even if it’s the same color).

Our clients here have just remodeled their kitchen, but the colors don’t match with the connected great room’s colors. Will they be able to find a good solution to their problem or will they never be satisfied with their home interior?

They’re Like Mismatched Socks

“The kitchen and great room can’t look this different, they’re like mismatched socks!” Emma moans.

“What do you mean?” Ian, her husband, questions. “I thought mismatched socks were a popular thing now.” Emma gives him the look, saying “Kids say mismatched socks are cool but really it’s just laziness and a way to try and rebel.”

Ian chuckles knowing she’s talking about their own rebel back when he was younger. “I guess you have a point there hon. We need to get a house interior painting, so let’s talk to Tribble Painting about getting an estimate.”

Emma stares blankly, “Who?” Ian replies, “Tribble Painting, the company the Smiths recommended to us back when we first started this project. They’ve done great work for them in the past and said it was a great experience too.”

“Oh, that’s right, the Smiths did do that, didn’t they? Alright, let’s give them a call and see what we can work out.”

Ian slides his phone out of his pocket, goes to Tribble Painting’s website, and calls the number at the top of the page.

Will They Hire Tribble To Paint Their House Interior?

“Hi, this is Ashley with Tribble Painting. How may I help you today?”

Ian introduces himself and his wife and begins talking to Ashley about their need for house interior painting services. They talk for several minutes about the project, asking questions and making sure they’re on the same page.

“Alrighty Ian and Emma, I have you on our schedule for a house interior painting estimate in early July with Nick. Is there anything else you want to talk about?”

“No thanks, you’ve been very helpful. Have a great day!” The couple waits for the day of the estimate.

Early July rolls around, and so does Nick…

“Was that the doorbell?”

Ian opens the door to find a man in a Tribble Painting shirt on his doorstep, right on time. “Hi, Ian and Emma, right? I’m Nick, the estimator with Tribble Painting,” he says, pointing at the logo on his shirt.

Ian welcomes him in and after a short chat, Nick starts the estimate process.

Ian welcomes him in and after a short chat, Nick starts the estimate process.

“Well,” Nick says after taking a look around and asking some questions, “based on what I can see and what you’ve told me, I’d estimate this project to be around…”

Ian and his wife talk privately for a minute and come back to Nick, saying “We’d like to accept your estimate.” Later, after Nick has left, the couple receives an email saying the start of their house interior painting project will be the week of September 30th.

Closer to the start week they get an email with the actual start date and some information on their project manager, including a picture.

In the meantime, the couple tries different colors to see which one they want for their home. They find the one they want and email Tribble to let them know.

Then the day of the project arrives…

“Hi, Ian and Emma! My name’s Weston and I’ll be your personal project manager.”

Weston and Ian go on a pre-job walk through to make sure Weston and his team know exactly what they are supposed to do. Weston introduces Ian to his team: Jacob, Zach, Rob, Mike, and Tyler.

“Oh, and Ian, here’s my personal cell number in case you need me for anything,” Weston says, reaching for his phone. “Your personal number? Are you sure?” Ian asks hesitantly. “This hasn’t happened before, but it’s good to know I have someone I know I can reach out to.”

“Hey, Weston, one more thing before you guys start. Can you make sure to protect the hardwood floors? They’re brand new and we’d like them to stay that way for a little while longer, you know?”

“Of course, Ian. We’ll take extra good care of them.” They shake hands and part ways, Ian to work and Weston to get his crew ready for a house interior painting.

With this size crew, Ian and Emma’s project is done in 3 days. We used Benjamin Moore Regal Select for the walls and Benjamin Moore Advance for the woodwork. One of the final steps after the painting is the cleanup, which you can see us doing in this video:

“Ian, Emma, do you mind going on a post-job walk through to make sure everything is up to your standards?” Weston asks. “Absolutely,” they cheerfully reply. They walk through the rooms, making a few touchups here and there.

As Ian gives Weston the rest of their deposit, he says “You know, we’d actually be interested in having you guys do another house interior painting project for us in the near future. What do you say?”

Weston replies, “We would love that! Call Ashley whenever you want to start. How do you feel about this project, though?” Ian and Emma look at each other, then at Weston, saying “We LOVE it! Those areas haven’t been painted in 20 years and they look incredible.”

Weston thanks them for their business and heads off with his team, leaving Ian and Emma to admire their now matching kitchen and great room.
