PAINTING BEYOND COMPARE
Shoreline Painting offers an exclusive, elevated level of workmanship and management standards, making Shoreline a leader in the industry among Fairfield and Westchester county competitors. Michael Italiano, VP of sales and marketing, shares a few trade secrets.
Tell us about your company’s philosophy. Shoreline’s company philosophy is simple on the surface level yet refined in order to meet upmarket benchmarks that clients have to come know. Quality, integrity and expertise are the highest values we stand behind. It’s important to us that our clients recognize when hiring Shoreline that they’re not just hiring “another painter.” We specialize in high-end, luxury finishing with a mindfulness approach of achieving the design aesthetic unique to each client.
How would you describe your relationship with your clients? Detail-oriented. Shoreline clients don’t want to micromanage their painters. Most of our clients come to us with a vision and a timeline. It’s our objective to uncover all the details in between that are required to achieve their desired look. Our clients trust our knowledge of paint products and finishes in addition to our management approach to delivering projects on time and on budget.
What is the first discussion you like to have with a new client? It is always about uncovering the clients’ wishes, understanding what they are looking to achieve, and then helping them to fill in the blanks. So, if our clients know what colors they want, but need help with finishes, we start with what they know and then go down the list of what their missing. If they have design inspiration but have no idea where to begin, we create an action plan and then begin with a simplified step-by-step approach.
What is the most often overlooked step in painting and why is it so important not to skip it? We believe the most overlooked step in painting is the prep work that goes into the project before finish applications. Any basic painter can offer a standard sand, prime and paint job to a client; but a true quality paint project begins with taking the time to prep all substrates in the appropriate manor. The level of prep work behind finish coats, the skill level of the applicators (painters), the protection of floors, countertops, and fixtures, and management style differentiate in a way that is likely to have a strong and far-reaching effect between a basic paint job and a Shoreline Painting paint job.
