During this week, we are glad to have teamed with Sherwin-Williams, the nation’s largest specialty retailer of paint and painting supplies, to create our home improvement painting experience for our newly built home.
We started our painting project with using the various Sherwin-Williams color tools (Color Visualizer, ColorSnap for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Paint Calculator to determine how much actual paint you need for your project); visiting our knowledgeable local Sherwin-Williams Store #2453 to assist in color choices and design tips; (after recommendations from the Sherwin-Williams store and personal research) selecting Sarasky’s Painting because of their professionalism, experience, and affordability.
Guido and Carolina Sarasky are the professional Latino owners of Sarasky’s Painting. Throughout my life, my parents have always owned several properties so I was accustomed to DIY projects and contractors. I was greatly pleased by the level of dedication and detail showcased throughout the entire 3-day project by Guido and Carolina.
We selected Emerald Interior and Harmony paints for our painting project. Emerald is well-known for its excellent coverage and smooth appearance – something that was important to us because we are painting ‘high-traffic’ areas within the 1st floor. Also, Emerald contains a preservative that helps inhibits the growth of mold and mildew – which is a must living in Florida.
Harmony, helps to promote better indoor air quality by reducing airborne concentrations of formaldehyde and other aldehydes. The enhanced formula features formaldehyde reducing technology that helps reduce the levels of these volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from potential sources like insulation, carpet, cabinets, fabrics and other building materials.
May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month and these irritants in the air as well as other substances such as dust mites, pollen and mold can cause allergy symptoms as well as asthma episodes. In fact, according to the American Lung Association approximately 3 million Hispanics suffer from Asthma and Puerto Ricans are especially impacted by the disease; they are more likely to have a diagnosis of asthma than any other population group. Due to the eco-friendly benefits, we are using the Harmony paint in many of our heavily used family areas.
- DETAIL EXPERTS: Our 1st floor painting project required a great deal of precision and detail because of so many architectural designs and various colors. Guido and Carolina not only both had a steady hand for painting but also created meticulous straight lines on somewhat difficult edges, especially when one wall edge is a different color than the other wall edge.
- KNOWLEDGEABLE: Guido enjoys sharing money-saving or DIY fact with his customers to help them save where they can. He helped to save me money by sharing a DIY fact. We had some extra unused paint and Guido took the extra paint to Sherwin-William store. The Sherwin-Williams Store #2453 team was able to tint the old paint (with a darker color) so it can be used as a primer underneath our new paint job. It helped us save money by not buying separate primer gallons. In addition, they both made me feel very part of the process and engaged in all decisions and ideas.
- HIGH QUALITY CRAFTMANSHIP: Guido and Carolina both take great pride in their work. They went over each edge, line, and color pattern variance with great methodical purpose making sure no error or accident occurred. They showed their expertise while painting each room in a manner to help minimize any disruption of our daily lives.
For this project, the following rooms and areas were painted:
- Living Room
- Dining Room
- Family Room
- Hallways (to the garage and 1st floor bedroom)
We are EXTREMELY satisfied with the wonderful work performed by Sarasky’s Painting
and the flow of the vibrant Sherwin-Williams colors.
Our new home is completely different – its been given a total makeover and new look thanks to
Sherwin-Williams and Sarasky’s Painting.
