Default Needing quality painter referrals in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia

Howdy. I'm a residential designer with 20 years experience of working with award winning architects. I'm on my own and looking for quality painters I can work with for both high quality exterior and interiors. I do some historic work; am looking for folks who can work with quality paints such as Farrow and Ball and Fine Paints of Europe; and occasionally have high level interior finish work such as painted floors.

I think most here would agree that it's easier to work with high "quality" paints than it is poor ones - regardless of the brand. To think otherwise is more of a designer mentality than that of a professional painter.

If I were a residential/architectural designer that has a consulting business, and who needs quality painters to coordinate with, I'd be inclined to enquire at a local professional paint store. As far as painting with the high end paint brands you mentioned, I'm not certain they can't be applied like any other paint product, given that the skill of painting is in the application rather then the product itself.

BTW, welcome! And much success!

You lost me at quality paints like F&B. It's far from it.

Anything that costs OVER $100/gal is "high quality" in the minds of the homeowner.

Now, on the other hand, their papers ARE top quality.
