Spring Preventative Maintenance

Spring will soon be here and it will be time for home maintenance after a winter of neglect. Your home is probably the largest investment you will ever make. You should be doing seasonal preventative maintenance on your home. Routine, preventive maintenance will keep
 your property looking good, functioning well, will save you time and money in the long haul and keeps the value of your property. The following are tips to extend the life and value of your property.
 
  • Inspect your roof for damaged and/or loose shingles.

Painters, N.Y Sales Tax

When is apainting contractor in NYSsuppose to charge sales and use tax? A legitimate painting company working in New York will be licensed, have a tax i.d number, have a federal employee i.d number, and have insurance. Ask your potential house painter if he can show you valid proof of all of these. If the painting company can not show you documentation that they are a legal company to work in NY, then do not hire them, as there can be problems down the road.

If you are a non profit organization then you will be tax exempt and not have to pay NYS Sales and Use Tax on your painting project.

House Painting Color Tips

When choosing paint colors to paint your house or office it can be a daunting task. There are 3 general groups of paint schemes:
  • Monochromatic schemesare based on one hue, which varies in value (lightness and darkness), and saturation (the amount of color). An example of this is a pale blue with a pure blue and dark blue. 
  • Analogous schemescombine no more than three similar colors. An example of this is red, yellow red (orange), and yellow. 
  • Complementary schemesare based on opposing colors.
