Paint sheens are differentiated by the amount of light they reflect. There are five common types of paint sheens: flat or matte, satin, eggshell, semi-gloss, and high-gloss. Flat or matte is used commonly on ceilings as it tends to absorb the light instead of reflecting. Satin is somewhat cleanable and is often used in common use areas such as living room, family rooms, and hallways. Eggshell is used a lot of time in kitchens, as it can be much easier to keep clean. Most of the time, semi-gloss is used on trim such as doors, baseboard, or windows because it very easy to clean and highlights your trim. High-gloss is very shiny and is most commonly used on industrial projects.
Last week we were continuing work on a multi-tenant drywall patching, texturing, and interior painting project in Marysville. We started a commercial light gauge steel stud framing and drywall project. We also started a residential drywall hanging and taping project in Magnolia.
We are booking our last exterior projects as August is wrapping up. If you would like the exterior – of your house or commercial building – repainted for the upcoming winter months, let us know. We are looking full, but do have a few openings where we could squeeze you in. Be sure to book your painting before you head out for your last vacation of the summer!
