Arana Craftsman Painters provides each customer with a color consultation to begin the process.

Paint is the medium by which color is delivered to a home and we want you, the customer, to get the colors you desire most.
Many a layperson believes residential house painting to consist of no more than 3 simple steps; picking a color, applying paint, and drying. In truth however, residential house painting is a much more detailed and meticulous process. At Arana Craftsman Painters we believe that surface preparation is the base of expert level residential painting. Properly prepared surfaces are far more accepting of primers, patches, and paints. They are also more apt to hold onto the aforementioned for greater lengths of time as well.
After a surface has been cleaned and prepped, our painters can get to work at beautifying your home. We utilize both brush and spray and roll techniques in order to meet the specialized needs of your home. The exact technique our painters use will largely be determined by what type of surface they are working with. Interior walls for example almost always require brushing and rolling. Ceilings and surfaces made of wood on the other hand are best served by the use of a spray devices as these units apply a paint evenly and quickly over hard surfaces. We also mask trim around the exterior of a home in order to create sharp clean lines. Conversely, our master painters will cut lines by hand for the ultimate in crisp, clean edges indoors.
There is a great deal more than just applying paint and drying in our professional process. The following are the steps involved in our work.
The Consultation – Choosing a color that works best for a home and the owners personal tastes isn’t always as easy as it might seem. This is why Arana painters will meet with homeowners long before any actual painting occurs. We will provide you with our professional opinions on what works best. We will also make color charts available for visual reference, and apply test samples until you’ve made a decision that you will love.
High Quality Painting – Once the right colors have been selected we begin by preparing your home’s surfaces for painting. Ensuring they are clean and free of debris allows your home to hold onto primer, paint, and finishes a great deal better than they would if these things were applied without this initial prep. After a surface has been prepared our craftsman will apply paint with an unprecedented level of detail and passion. Our goal is simple, to make your home come to life and create alluring surfaces that will please for years to come.
