Let Professional Painters Paint Your Vacation House
Yes, we would be more than happy to travel to your vacation home and paint it for you. It is surprisingly affordable. Professional Painters’ fees are the same as they would be locally. The only additional expenses for you are lodging for our staff, a per diem for meals, and travel costs. That may sound like quite a bit extra, but there are ways to reduce those costs. Most of our clients let the painters stay in their home so there is no charge for lodging. Also, we can be flexible with the per diem. We keep track of the grocery bills for the painters and charge you the lesser amount of the actual food cost or the per diem. The transportation costs can be lowered if you have frequent flier miles that the painters can use to pay for their flights.
Most vacation areas are in small, rural locations where there are not many qualified painting companies to properly paint your home. In some areas, the demand for painting services greatly exceeds the supply of painting companies. The available painting companies sometimes take advantage of this and charge extremely high rates.
Our clients have told us it is impossible for them to get their vacation home projects finished. Projects of that size interrupt your reason for being there in the first place - to enjoy leisure activities like hunting and fishing season. Most of the local companies in vacation areas don’t have the “get it done in a business-like fashion” type of service that we consistently provide to our demanding clients in the Chicago market. In addition, when our expert painters come to work on your vacation home, they are a captive audience. The painters typically work 12 hours a day, six days a week until your project is completed. They love it because there is no commuting time wasted going to and from work.
We have painted many vacation homes for our clients, both near and far. We painted two different lake homes in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. We replaced all the wood clapboard and restored the damaged wood on 1000-acre farm house and barn outside of New Buffalo, Michigan. We painted another farm house in upstate rural New York, but this one doesn’t have a barn. We painted two homes on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, and eight years later, we went out and painted them a second time. The first time we went, we drove our truck and put it on the ferry to get out to the island and had the paint delivered from the mainland. We’ve also painted the interior of a home in Charlotte, North Carolina. The furthest we have gone so far was to paint the interior of a villa in St. Croix, Virgin Islands. I didn’t get to go but I heard the ocean views were magnificent.
So if your vacation home is in need of painting, let us do the work while you relax and enjoy your vacation.
