Once your house has been fully repainted by SF House Painting, you can expect to not have to repaint for another 10-15 years, minimum. That's because we invest the time to make sure any underlying issues are fixed before we begin a project. On top of that, we always use at least a double coat of high quality paint, locking in the repairs and keeping your house looking beautiful for a decade.

You’re not expecting to paint entire houses on your own, are you? Once you’ve got your business set up, it’s time to figure out whether you want to hire employees or use subcontractors instead. If you choose the former option, you’ll have to buy equipment and supplies for your own workers to use—but you’ll retain control over your business.
