Just mixing paint is hard even right from the store. Here’s a quick video from the DIY Network (there may be a short commercial):
And, when you’re doing a whole room, it’s easy to “box” the paint and make the room look good. But, when it comes to matching your existing colors of walls…or matching wood stain colors…or any of your other finishes, I’d like to let you know right up front…it’s an art…not a science.
Even if you give me the exact color and I go back to the same paint store, there can be complications either on their end mechanically (I can’t control what comes out of their machines) or there may be some discoloration from aging or from exposure to the sun. Over time different products, especially wood and stain, can change their color. Then when placing new products next to them it is EXTREMELY difficult to get it exactly right.
Now, I’ll do my best to get it as close as possible on every job. But, if it has to be perfect, I’ll provide you with an addendum to our contract. You’ll need to inform me of what parts need to be an exact match. I’ll then either make a materials sample or show you a test patch for your approval before starting the final solution.
My job is to make sure that when the job is completed, you’re happy with the results. I take pride in my work and my ability to seamlessly blend in my new work with your existing home.
