How We Do It For You

How We Are Going to Make You Happy

Hundreds of happy customers have chosen Kirbyworks for their painting projects in the Tri-Cities area.


Your Bid

We don’t do estimates – we give you a bid. We do not come back after the job is over saying we are charging more except when you have added work beyond the original scope we agreed on in the beginning. In that case we change the price only if we agree to the scope and new bid price.

An estimate always leaves the door open for a contractor saying their “estimate” was inaccurate. It’s kind of like when we as little kids used to cross our fingers when telling the “truth”.

After we are done with the job and discover that we should have bid more for the project because it took longer than expected then that’s our problem, not yours. You pay only what we agreed to.

Our bids usually include the cost of labor and material though for some smaller jobs taking less than 2 gallons of paint we usually bid for labor plus whatever the paints costs, which I get at a healthy discount at local paint stores.


For Jobs over $1000 I’ll need a 50% down payment, which is an industry standard.

We accept the following forms of payment:

  • Cash
  • Checks
  • PayPal 
  • Cash App
  • Google Pay

Sorry, we do not accept credit cards, but if you need to use credit or if you’re like me and like to rack up Skymiles then with some of the online services like the ones listed here you can charge your account with your credit card. 

Interior Painting Prep

Interior painting prep includes:

  • Moving your furniture away from the walls and covering
  • Removing wall plates
  • Washing off any areas that might have a greasy residue such as around the kitchen stove
  • Removing wallpaper 
  • Filling and patching holes in your sheet-rock
  • Priming
  • Texturing

Though we will move your furniture we do ask that you clear the area of small and fragile items.

Interior Painting

We usually use Sherwin-Williams’ top-of-the-line SuperPaint Satin for the best coverage and durability.

Exterior Painting Prep

Exterior painting prep includes:

  • Pressure washing the house.

  • Prime bare wood if we don’t use a paint that has primer in it.

Exterior Painting

The body is sprayed while door and window trim and facia are brushed and rolled. Doors are sprayed if they are smooth or brushed if they have been brushed before. We generally use top-of-the-line Sherwin Williams Superpaint Satin.
