Click on any of the questions below to learn more:

What forms of payments are accepted?

We accept cash, check and most credit card payments.

What kinds of paints do you use?

While there are hundreds of options when it comes to paint, we usually recommend using Sherwin Williams brand paints based on their quality, durability and value. However, depending on the type of project and our customer’s needs, we are always open to other options and can recommend suitable alternatives if needed.

Are your painters insured?

Yes, our painters and our company are insured and most of our employees have been with us on staff for multiple years.

Can you paint over mold?

Painting over mold will not kill it and can pose health risks for those who come in contact with the area or breathe in airborne spores. To solve this issue, we recommend calling a mold remediation professional to rid your home or business of the mold before starting your painting or repair project.

What are the benefits of repainting my home or business?

While there are several benefits to adding a little personality to your home or business, exterior painting also adds protection to the everyday wear and tear your property experiences. Animals, insects, dirt, sunlight, wind, rain, snow and temperature changes all take a toll on the exterior of your home. A new paint job also improves your home’s curb appeal and property value.

How long will it take to paint my home or business?

Estimating the time for any project depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the project, what materials  will be used and the time of year, for an experior project. Based on all or any of these factors, a single project may take anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks. To ensure peace of mind before committing to a painting company, it’s important to reach out for a free estimate so you know how much you’ll be spending and how long the project will take.

How long will my paint last before it begins to fade?

A typical paint job varies depending on if you are doing an exterior or interior paint job. However, many experts recommend rejuvenating your home or business every five to ten years. To ensure your paint job lasts longer, be sure to use quality paint and choose your painters wisely.

What are your painters' credentials?

As well as having over 15 years of experience, our painters are licensed so you can feel secure when they are painting your home or business. The team at Rudy’s Painting & Repairs is also known to be friendly and hard-working, with bilingual employees on staff for Spanish-speaking customers.
