Our attention to detail when it comes to prep work and painting. Additionally, we work with the best house painters to make sure the job is done right and if you need dedicated help with colors, we work with the best interior/exterior designers to help you pick colors that will not only work well for you and your home, but that you will love! Even if you’re keeping the same colors you already have, we get those colors matched so you can continue to enjoy the colors that you love! We treat your home as if it is our own, so you can trust that it will get done right by us.
For Cabinetry and casework, please make sure that your counter space is clear and that any food, spices, dishes, etc. in your cupboards are moved back 10”-12” so that we have room to work around the openings. If we are painting the inside of the cabinetry (less common), please completely empty out the cabinetry and clean the insides (dish soap and water will do fine).
Our painters never expect tips. However, if you love the work they did on your home, you are more than welcome to tip your painters. The industry standard is 2-4% of the job size.
If you don’t have a preference, we recommend Sherwin-Williams products, because they do more product testing than any other paint company and they stand behind their products. This means that if there is ever a manufacturing defect, you can trust Sherwin-Williams to take care of you and your project. However, we can use any type of paint you prefer…this is your house, after all!
Absolutely! We protect our customers by carrying the appropriate coverages for general liability and worker’s compensation. Note: Many painting companies do not carry worker’s compensation. We recommend using a company that is bonded and insured, even if it isn’t us.
We maintain full general liability insurance on all people working on your home. With safety in mind, we will do everything we can to avoid any injuries on the jobsite. However, accidents can happen. We have the proper coverage so that you don’t need to worry about a thing!
Additionally, we have an all-inclusive Worker’s Compensation policy through Liberty Mutual. Many painting companies do not have this policy, but we feel it is very important to keep our painters safe and covered. Also, it covers you (the homeowner) from any lawsuit against you and your property were someone to get hurt.
We stand by our work and will come out if any problems arise! That being said, we stand behind quality work. That means we require all of the necessary prep work and quality materials in order for us to do the job right. Patience is absolutely crucial to the outcome as well. Even though your cabinets will be dry enough to touch within 24 hours, the curing processes for most cabinet paints can take up to 2 weeks.
The most common product we use for cabinetry is a high quality paint from Sherwin-Williams called Emerald Urethane Enamel, or its counterpart Pro-Industrial Waterbased Alkyd Urethane. If you are choosing lighter colors, we’ll most likely use the Emerald Urethane Enamel. If you are choosing darker colors, we’ll probably use the Pro-Industrial Waterbased Alkyd Urethane. In order for the paint to adhere properly to the substrate (base surface), the surface needs to be in good condition. For this reason, we ask that any damaged surfaces be repaired/replaced prior to us coming to prep your cabinets for paint. If you need a recommendation, we network with several highly rated, reasonably priced cabinet makers who can help you get your cabinets paint ready!
Start by selecting colors. Go to your nearest Sherwin-Williams store to discover which color schemes interest you most. Then, we will come out to help you select your final color scheme!
If you have already selected colors, please let us know and we can apply paint samples to your cabinets if you’d like. We’ll need the color name and code as well. If you’re matching your existing colors, we may need old paint cans, labels, and/or codes. If you don’t have this information, that’s okay too! We can get a match from the colors directly from the areas you want to match!
Once colors are finalized, we can sit down and talk about your rough start date for the prep work and painting.
The week leading up to the job, you can expect us to keep you updated, especially if there are any changes in our work schedule.
We will let you know what time you can expect our crews to start work each day.
Upon completion, we’ll look over the cabinets with you to do any last touch ups before we collect the final payment. We would also appreciate it if you would fill out a short survey letting us know how the process was for you. Your feedback is very valuable to us as it allows us to improve with every project we do!
That’s okay! Desert Winds pairs with the best designers and decorators around who will assist you in choosing colors that will match with your paint colors, countertops, or backsplash!
Once a color scheme is chosen, test patches can be ordered and applied to a small area of the cabinets in order to see the paint color in different lighting. After all, we want you to love the colors you choose!
