Ask An Expert – FAQ’s

I want a painter with experience. What are your qualifications?

Joel’s Painting has successfully served the Lancaster, York, and Central PA since 2002. Owner Joel Buch started working as a summer laborer at the age of 16. He grew up in the business and applies all the lessons he’s learned into completing quality exterior and interior painting for his residential and commercial customers. Today, a high percentage of our work each year stems from repeat customers.

In addition to Joel’s extensive experience, our company only employs painters with proven experience and professional expertise. A crew leader heads up every project, and each employee undergoes continual professional skill and safety compliance training.

Does Joel’s Painting guarantee its work?

Yes, definitely! We guarantee our work on both interior and exterior projects for 2 years, and we include that guarantee in our contracts. If a problem arises with the paint job, we make every effort to fix it immediately.

How much will it cost me for an estimate?

Estimates are always free! There is never any charge for painting quotes, no matter how small or large your project is.

What types of customers have you completed projects for?

Joel’s Painting serves residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional properties throughout the Lancaster, York, and Central PA. Our customer base includes homeowners, project leaders, non-profit organizations and property managers, among many others. No job is too large or too small for our painting team.

My office needs a paint job, but I cannot disrupt my business. What can we do?

No worries! Joel’s Painting works around your schedule and strives for minimal disturbance to your business. We can complete your project during late shifts, weekends or even holidays.

Do I need to find a cleaning contractor for accumulated dust, mildew and algae buildup?

No! Joel’s Painting is very experienced in pressure washing, and we actually prefer to provide your professional cleaning services. This way, we can take full responsibility for the project and guarantee a higher quality paint job. Additionally, we use only green, environmentally safe solutions that are better for you and the environment.

I have an emergency project. How soon can you get started?

Even though we prefer to have some advance notice to prepare, we’ll do our best to be there when you need us. We also provide flood and restoration services and work with most insurance agencies.

How late in the fall season can I successfully do an exterior painting project?

Today’s latex house paints can be applied in air temperatures as low as 35 º F and many industrial coatings can be applied in temperatures as low as 20 º F. We advise customers to schedule your project as soon as possible rather than waiting too late in the season. If you wait until next year, your residential or commercial space may need additional prep work, and the project will cost more to complete.
