How to Choose the Proper Finish for Your Interior Paints




We at Colarossi Painting and Rain Gutters will advise you further upon inspection of your property. The following is some information to get you started for those who would like to get a jump-start on some basic information regarding what to expect when we arrive. We like to educate our clients as much as possible before, during and after a project so that you can make the most informed and confident decisions.

We assume if you are reading this you are about to paint your home. If you are taking this step, we would like to do everything in our power to help you get the most out of the time and money you plan on investing into your home improvement. The happier you are, the happier we are. That is the foundation for our business. We have operated locally in the South Bay and Los Angeles area for decades and satisfied homeowners is our bread and butter.

Types of finishes for paints:

1. Flat – OK for walls but not great because it shows dirt and doesn’t clean very well.

2. Eggshell – Hides imperfections, smoother than flat and a popular choice for walls.

3. Satin – Shiny and cleanable, popular choice for kitchens.

4. Semi Gloss – Very shiny, good for trim, cabinets and doors. Extremely cleanable.

5. High Gloss – Great for areas that need to be cleaned often.

We will work with you to select the best finishes and colors for each area of your home. We have painted hundreds of homes (interior and exterior), commercial buildings and even industrial spaces. The experience has provided us with the knowledge to approach every project with a laser-like focus and provide outstanding results every time.

We have a dozen of our own, branded trucks and painting crews locally on the road. This allows us to service every project large or small without delay. Give us a call today, we will be happy to inspect your property and answer any questions you have. Have a great day and we look forward to meeting you. In most cases we will make it out to your property within one business day.

Environmentally Friendly and Quality Paints

sw-pdf-celebrationHaving painted homes and buildings for two decades, we have learned a thing or two about what paints perform the best and last the longest. Our preferred paint manufacturer is Sherwin Williams.

Sherwin Williams has created GreenSure products to minimize the impact on the environment.

We use Sherwin Williams for primer in addition to paints. From our experience it’s best to keep the two separate. The trend of using two in one primer and paints does not last as long as when primer and paint is applied separately.

Our professionally trained sales team and project managers will work with you and / or your interior designer to choose the perfect colors to cover your interior rooms or the exterior of your home or office. In addition, we will show you pictures of our previous work for inspiration.

If you are the computer savvy type, Sherwin Williams offers easy to use color selection tools on their website. You can upload photos of your property and simply start to change the colors of the walls.

They offer color snap for mobile devices, color snap studio for iPad and color visualizer for desktop. In addition to photos of your own property, you may use the Sherwin Williams color selection tools with stock photos they have already uploaded for your convenience.

You can save your favorite colors and scenes and share them with friends for feedback. With our locally owned and operated team here to support you every step of the way and digital resources at your disposal, we are confident you will find the perfect color solutions for your home applied with the quality you deserve.

We have a dozen painting crews of our own and your work will always be completed with a team who on average has worked together for a decade. People tell us all the time, “We love your guys.” We have serviced the South Bay and Los Angeles for 20 years so we are here if you need us after the job is complete. If you need a touch up down the line you have our entire support staff behind you with one phone call.

Our staff is here for you and to keep your property looking great. Our reputation is everything to us and we look forward to serving the community for years to come. Have a great day, we look forward to making your vision into reality.
