Need a painter? Here’s how we help


Our clients turn to us to help solve a problem. From interior walls or cabinets that just aren’t meeting design preferences to an old and peeling exterior that’s no longer doing its job — our goal is to help our clients solve these problems.

But we also understand that how we go about solving these problems is also important. From start to finish, we’re dedicated to offering a high quality painting experience focused on expert craftsmanship, great customer service, and exceeding your expectations.

Whether your goal is to breathe new life into the appearance of a home or commercial building or protect it from the elements and maintain its long-term value, we offer an easy and enjoyable painting process with superior results.


What to know about working with Bluenote Painting

Our painting teams are available for both commercial and residential projects throughout the Portland metro area. We are licensed, bonded, and insured, and all of our employees are covered by workers compensation insurance plus up to $1 million in liability coverage.

All this is for your protection and ease of mind. Many of our clients have been burned by contractors in the past and we want you to understand we’re different.

We offer complimentary at-home estimates and there’s never any obligation past receiving the quote. If you do feel comfortable with the quote and we move forward with the work, we’ll be committed to your project and your 100% satisfaction.


Our painting process

We’re dedicated to quality, service, warranty, and value — learn how we live up to this mission through our painting process.


1. Selecting your paint

Choosing colors and using the right type of paint is our foundation for getting the best results.

Correctly choosing the right type of paint requires a variety of tools and resources. It takes much more than just visiting a local hardware store and picking a color you like.

Our professional painters will consider a wide range of factors when helping you choose the correct paint, including type, colors, sheen, and quantity needed.


2. Protecting your property

The next step of our process is to make sure our painting activities don’t disturb you or any of your belongings. Painting is a messy job, after all!

We’ll take special care of your surroundings and will always treat your property with respect. Our workers are specifically trained in this area and will treat your home as if it were their own!


3. Preparing the painting surface

We always begin with a clean, smooth, blank surface. This exact process will differ for every project, but typically includes:

  • Pressure washing (exterior projects)
  • Scraping
  • Caulking
  • Priming

We’re extremely thorough and will do it all.


4. Painting

Our team has years of painting experience and understands how to work efficiently, respectfully, and quietly. We never rush, but our team will work in a focused manner using professional techniques.

We’ll ensure the results meet our standards of excellence and make sure you’re equally as satisfied, answering any questions and addressing all of your concerns.


5. Cleaning up

Our team will leave your property in the same condition we found it…only with fresh paint, of course! We “undo” all of our prep work, including taking off tape and clearing away drop clothes.
