Putting a fresh coat of paint on your molding (also known as trim) can be the perfect finishing touch to a room or house renovation. Whether it's crown molding, base molding, chair rail, casing or decorative molding, a refresh or a new color will make everything look sharp.
Painting molding the right way is not as easy as opening up a can of paint, dipping in a brush and brushing it on the molding. The proper preparation of the wood is critical to ensure it looks excellent when completed and holds up over time. This is especially true for char rail and crown molding, which are both more likely to draw the eye.
While white is the most popular color for molding, off white, gray and even black can also add interesting contrast, as can a more natural wood stain. Some designers recommend painting the trim the same color as the walls. This approach doesn't provide contrast, but it does introduce depth and texture to the walls.
At Callahan Painting & Home Improvements we paint all types of molding in all areas of the house. You can rest assured that we will prepare the trim properly and have it looking just the way you want it to.
Molding painting requires excellent technique because the molding so often borders the ceiling or the floor. You can trust the experts at Callahan Painting & Home Improvements to provide high quality work when painting your trim, with no stray marks left on other surfaces.

Jim and his crew are nothing but polite and professional! They are the quickest and friendliest workers we have ever met. And we wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Jim worked hard to schedule these services right as we were moving into our new house, so that the walls were clean and prepped for painting right away. His crew was quick, and left no mess at all. Compared to all of the other companies I had in and out of my house those first few weeks - these guys were by far the best to deal with!
Callahan Painting saved my sanity! They were able to get the job done weeks faster than any other contractor, and at a fair price. Jim the owner was always available to answer my questions or address any issues I had. When work was done, he did a quality check walkthrough with me to make sure all work was done up to my standard. Jim's two man crew got done in a week what would have taken me months to complete. They were fast, friendly, and did a fantastic job. I would recommend Callahan to anyone!
The crew were professional, on time and provided quality work. Several contractors made appointments and never showed up. Others showed up, said they would email an estimate and never did. Jim came out, gave me an estimate and the work was completed in five days.
Jim and his crew did an exceptional job... so much more than I expected. Not only did they do a beautiful job restoring my plaster walls and painting, but they also put a back splash in the kitchen, replaced light fixtures, outlets, moved the thermostat to a new wall location, picked up and mounted a new television and managed to get my fireplace functioning. I couldn't believe how helpful and willing Jim was to do whatever I asked. We completely rehabbed three rooms, an entry way and hallway and they look amazing! He was so helpful and patient in helping me choose colors and was also cost conscious when it came to choosing material for my back splash. Jim is honest, fair and I definitely plan on hiring him again!
Always polite and professional.
Jimmy and his crew responded right away and returned the ceiling to better than original condition, all within 24 hours of contact. Can't thank enough- recommend highly!
Jim and his crew were great! Got us in before we moved to Ohio and even stayed late the day before we moved in to ensure the paint was dry and ready to go.
