It’s Not How They Start, It’s How You Finish

Marcos Torres and his crew of four painters tackled this lavish Gurnee, IL home after the original painter baled out. “That first guy worked solo and spent two days priming raw wood, filling nail holes and patching. He figured he could paint the whole house in four days but quickly realized he was in over his head. We spent seven days with a crew of four completing this detailed project. We used Sherwin Williams paints: ProClassic semi-gloss on trim and Cashmere flat on walls – 7 colours in all.

A major challenge on this house was the homeowner’s dog. He was constantly in the way and rubbing up against the painted trim. With the owner’s approval we rigged up a temporary fence in the backyard to keep the dog out of the house.”

Marco started Torres Painting in Kenosha, WI in 2013 after working for a commercial painting contractor for 15 years. “We focus mainly on residential repaints, including wallpaper stripping and cabinet painting. I’m glad we could help bring the vision for this home to life.”
