  • Filling wall nail holes
  • Filling baseboard nail holes
  • Removing outlet covers
  • Covering floors to prevent spillage
  • Priming as necessary
  • Furniture manipulation
  • Removing of window treatments
  • Removal of wallpaper (in some instances, where wallpaper will not come off, we may skim coat with drywall mud and sand - this can only be assessed once the job has started)
  • Removal of paper borders

At Ashworth Painting, we know that your time is valuable. We want to do the work correctly - to start - from the Quote right down to the Final Finishes! Most jobs require a site visit to ensure a firm quotation. However, we can also use digital photos and/or floor plans to provide an estimation of what those quotes might look like. Once verified that you’d like to move forward, we can then move to the next step of a firm quotation via a site visit. We visit based on YOUR availability and preferred time of day. The site visit involves measurements, discussion about your needs and desires, assessment of the site conditions, timeframe for completion and final finish details. Most painting quotations will be in your hands within a day or two of this visit.

Kitchen cabinetry completion is usually a 10-14 business day turn around, however efficiencies (including but not limited to access to the site for base painting) may allow us to cut that in half. Interior painting is subject to factors such as the size of the space, the number of walls, whether or not trim, ceilings and doors are included, and how much pre-painting preparation is required. We aim to complete the average home within a week, and this as well, with efficiences, be improved depending on how many of our crew are able to be on site, and again, how much access we have to the space.

We have experience using ALL of the product lines you would normally find in both the big box stores and the boutiques: from DuLux - Farrow & Ball. If you leave the decision to Ashworth Painting/TAG Painting’s expertise, our choice tends to be Benjamin Moore products - for quality and price. We have always received optimum results with Benjamin Moore and our kitchen cabinetry paint portfolio has been virtually exclusive to their Advance Line Paint products. But, ultimately - it’s about YOU, what do YOU want to see as your final finishes?

We absolutely do! At the end of the day, YOU are the boss - and it’s about your tastes, reflections, and comfort level. Some people are looking to frame what is already in the room, others are about flashes of colour - bold and extreme. Ultimately, the colours are YOUR choice, but we can provide you with today’s trend recommendations, how well a colour may cover what is underneath, and the pro’s and con’s to some colours in certain spaces which CAN vary depending on light sources and the size of a space. When we come to provide our site visit we can also provide you digital services to help you plan and and sample what your space COULD look like.

To follow is the process to freshening up your cabinetry:

Step 1

We would also fill any holes and cracks and reconfigure holes for new hardware if necessary.

Step 3

• Visit your home again for second coat on base cabinets

Step 4
