Of all the trades on a project, the last one to work on new house or remodel is the painter. Matt Risinger is a big believer in hiring a very good painter. In a particularly difficult remodel of a 1940's home, he explains why the painters he hired were the right team for the task. Their lines were crisp, the trim where the ceiling meets is very neat, and the wood windows where painted with care a precision. Poplar wood was used throughout the house. This type of wood takes paint very well," and a zero VOC paint was used for the woodwork and walls.
