The purpose of a good painting contract is not to "crush" the homeowner in court, but the real purpose should be to prevent disputes in the first place by clearly telling your customer what you are doing for them under the terms of your contract to paint their home and by preventing unrealistic expectations from sabotaging your job.... and residential painting contracts should not scare your customers with obscure "legalize."  The goal should be to stop unnecessary arguments with your customer about the work BEFORE they happen. Customer dissatisfaction impacts your reputation in the area you do business in and also hurts your referral business. Don't run your business with "bald tires" when it is so easy to get a professional and protective Residential, House Painting Contract from ACT Contractors Forms.

Condo and townhome owners in NYC often look to update their living spaces with new paint in colors that better suit their personalities, lifestyles, and existing furnishings. Meanwhile, lofts and studios are favorite living quarters of NYC artists, who may be very skilled with a paintbrush on canvas but can benefit from a little professional help with painting the high ceilings and tight spaces in their homes.
Architect Peter Feigenbaum found Jonathan Barsness’s name on a painter forum on Brownstoner. A litany of positive reviews (from one: “does good work — and I’m fussy”) convinced Feigenbaum to book him to repaint a spare room in his Williamsburg apartment. The walls had “a lot of patch marks and chips and were an especially ugly color: mustard yellow,” says Feigenbaum. “After Barsness came, all the old crusty bits miraculously disappeared, and the questionable paint-color choice was replaced with relaxing grays.” Barsness’s precision and (relatively) low pricing (small rooms, like a nursery, start at $500, while a bedroom in a brownstone with tall ceilings and historic molding may start at $2,000) mean his customers tend to come back over and over — like Feigenbaum. “He doesn’t need a lot of hand-holding,” he says. “I’ll hand him a swatch, leave him a key, and he takes it from there.”
Certain architectural styles define the essence of New York City, such as Art Deco, Italianate, Post-Modern, Deconstructivism, Beaux-Arts, and Gothic Revival. Our five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island are a melting pot of cultures, and this diversity is reflected in how homes are built, designed, and updated by their owners.
