Welcome, my name is Kenny Lee, and I am the owner of Klappenberger & Son.  We are an exterior and interior painting company serving all of Carroll County.

What separates us from other interior painting companies in Carroll County?

The first is our communication.  Right from the beginning, when you call my cell phone, 702-899-2408, I will answer if I am not with a customer.  Many painting contractors have estimators who come out to estimate but never return to the job if their company receives the job.  We do.  I am the owner, estimator, and project manager on the job.  Being at the job from start to finish drastically reduces communication problems.

The Buck Stops Here

I spent seven years in the Army and honestly believed Truman, who famously said “The buck stops here.”

At Klappenberger & Son, we have training videos that all painters need to watch every six months.  These training videos are not about holding a paintbrush but are advanced training on best practices developed for over 25 years. In addition, I am a firm believer in inspecting what you expect. So you can count on me to be at the job to make sure everything is done as promised.

We have you covered whether you need one room painted in Westminster or an entire house painted in Sykesville.

Interior Painting In Carroll County: 

It’s All About The Prep!

Prep work is vitally important to have a beautiful interior paint job, and spackling is part of the process.  Unfortunately, when sanding the spackle, if it is done without a vacuum attachment, the spackle dust carries. 

It is astonishing how few interior painting contractors do not sand spackle areas with vacuum attachments.  Spackle dust is very light and can carry all through a house and even makes its way into closets.

We avoid this problem by sanding with vacuum attachments on our sanders, and it collects 95% of the dust before it has a chance to land where no one wants it. 

Out interior painting best practices not only include using a vacuum attachment when sanding but also using the most flexible spackles, so those cracks don’t come back.

Choosing The Right Paint

Most painting companies have their favorite go-to-paint.  Whether it is Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams there really is no one-size-fits-all.  Therefore, it is important to have a large breadth of knowledge to know which one fits your particular needs.  Moreover, it has been interesting to find that the more expensive paints are not always the best choice.  In addition to these fine paints below, we also do reviews on C2 Cabinet Paint.

Tips For Picking The Right Colors For Interior Painting

Color adds interest to a room.  But the color doesn’t have to come from the paint. 

The picture on the right has its walls painted with neutral color from PPG Transcend.  There needs to be a splash of color added, and the throw pillows provide the beautifully.  In contrast,  If we were to take the throw pillows from the sofa in the left picture and replace them with the one on the right, the room would look dull.
