Custom Stain Matching
If you’ve stained wood before, you’ve probably tried to do some of your own stain matching. Seems easy enough. You have some of the stain left over. Except, when you stain a new section of wood, it doesn’t look right. It’s lighter. So you try another coat of stain, Now it’s too dark. And it’s different when you look at it the next day.
You now have an idea of the delicate art and science that is custom stain matching. And you know why you need the trained and experienced custom stain matching team at The Paint People if you want an exact stain match.
The basis for all our stain matching is the quality of the stain, which must be maintained or the match might never be perfect. A custom stain blend is created for each match. One of the intricacies of custom stain matching is that the type of stain must be matched as well as the colour. Our team perfectly matches all latex, solvent and oil based stains as well as two-tone and spray stains.
To get your custom stain match exactly right, we’ll need a sample of the colour that you are trying to match and a minimum 1 ft. x 1 ft. piece of the wood that you’ll be staining. This is crucial for the right match because the wood species affects the finished colour of the stain.The final colour of the stain is affected by drying and the application of a clear coat. Getting the perfect stain match for your project requires a minimum 48 hours.
Custom Caulking Matching
It’s been the same way forever. If you want coloured caulk, you better want it in a white, gray, clear, almond or brown because that’s just about all the colours of caulking there are, right?
Custom-matching caulking colours to paint or grout colours is something that many people don’t even realize is a thing. They’ve just accepted that their beautifully painted or tiled surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom must be interrupted by a line of shockingly pure white, or, at best, the dull gray tint of clear caulking that doesn’t stand out so much. But it doesn’t match either.
If this has been your world through every kitchen and bathroom reno, have we ever got some really great news for you. The custom caulking matching specialists right here at The Paint People can mix caulking to match the colour of any paint, tile or grout.
In fact, if it’s a paint colour you’re trying to match, we can use the paint itself to get the match just right. In cases of matching tile or grout, we can find a paint colour that matches the tile or grout colour and work from that to come up with a custom caulking colour that puts the perfect finish on your project.
