Interior Painting in Columbia MD
We understand that having any home service work done at your home can be disruptive. But if you are in the market for interior painting in Howard County, I think we can make the process less stressful.
Reducing stress starts with asking questions and open communication. Hello, my name is Arturo Lacayo, and I believe one of the reasons we have so many positive reviews is we are a small local painting company and I oversee every project. I am the owner, estimator, and project manager on your job from start to finish. It’s comforting to know that the person who gave the estimate is also the person who manages the job and does a final walk-through with you.
We have never been big on advertising but rather have grown mostly through our reputation. Last year, 74% of our work was repeat customers and referrals. We even worked at the White House! Okay, I’m name-dropping, but it was an honor to paint at the White House.

Consistent 5-Star Reviews Comes From Our Training Program.
It is all about Superior Customer Service, a checklist of quality measures we follow from start to finish.
For example, when we arrive at the estimate, we have 8.5 x 11 color samples that are trending colors from top national designers. When we start painting, all crews wear name tags for easy identification. The crew leader will review the proposal and have paint samples applied for your approval.
Ten courtesies are all part of our superior customer services.
At Klappenberger & Son, we have training videos that all painters must 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.

Oh No, Spackle Dust!
Spackling work is vitally important to have a beautifully interior paint job. 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
sand spackle areas with vacuum attachments. Spackle dust is very light and can carry all throughout a house, even making 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 Interior 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.

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 that beautifully.
