Despite the constant demand for quality painting companies, many professional contractors do not do quality interior painting in Surfside.  Since 1989, Klappenberger & Son has been an exterior and interior painting contractor and developed some pretty cool best practices.

Our best practices have allowed us to give warranties that few other companies offer— for example, a five-year warranty on painting kitchen cabinets, and ten years for painting over wallpaper.

We are confident in our processes, and believe you will be happy with our results.  But I know talk is cheap, so please read our reviews and see if yourself.


Interior Painting in Surfside: The Difference Is in the Details


Having some basic tools and a 6′ ladder is not necessarily the sign of a quality painter.    There are many factors.

First, it starts with showing up on time for the estimate and emailing a quote back to you in 24-48 hours.

Secondly, cleaning up at the end of each day and leaving your house functional and shows respect.

Our process starts when we arrive at your home -promptly. 

Besides getting a great paint job at a terrific price, there is usually something else.


On all of our jobs, the estimator, likely the owner, will also be the project manager on the job.  Having the same person who gave you the estimate and understood the nuances of the job leads to fewer communication problems.

In addition, if the project manager is not there, the lead painter speaks fluent English.

Interior Painting In Surfside:  The Prep Work

Prep work is vitally important to having 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 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.

Our 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


Picking the right paint for your project can be tricky.  However, we have an advantage over other interior painting companies.  We have actually taken the time to test over 40 different interior paints!

These paint tests measure and compare the paints:

  • Coverage
  • Workability
  • Washability
  • Durability
  • Self-priming
  • Ability to touch-up

Interior Painting: Choosing The Right Color


For about 6 years or so, we were stuck in the light gray spectrum for the most popular interior painting colors.  Fortunately, we are stretching our palettes.

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 it 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.
