Information for Customers

This document contains information of interest to customers and potential customers of Constellation Painting. Specifically, it provides information around the painting process and sets out the terms and conditions under which work takes place. The document also describes the limited warranty which is provided to customers.

This document is provided to all customers at the time of estimate.

General Information


Customers are generally not limited to a particular paint dealer for their colour choices. Almost any existing sample or paint colour from any paint store can be matched.

Some products are not available in all colours.

Please be aware that it is not uncommon for very dark or very vibrant colours to exhibit poor washing and marking characteristics.

Furniture Moving

Constellation Painting will attempt to move your furniture if you do not do it yourself. However, some pieces are immobile or impractical to move. In that event an arrangement will be made with the customer regarding the piece.

Also, please note that although we do everything possible to assure that your possessions are kept safe during painting, we can not and do not take responsibility for damage to your possessions if we have to move them in order to paint.

Days of Work

Monday through Saturday are usual days of work. Arrangements may be made to work Sundays. Start times for interior and exterior work are by arrangement with property owner but are normally between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Exterior Work and Other Work In Warm Parts of the Year

Due to the unpredictability of weather, it is not always possible to execute work during scheduled times. In those cases we accept no responsibility for cost or inconvenience incurred by the customer.
