Will I receive a paint touch up kit?

To keep your new walls looking beautiful, freshly painted areas require some easy maintenance. Cleaning is vital to preserving the overall beauty of paint and extending its lifespan. For best results, wait two weeks after initial application before washing, and always test your cleaning solution and technique in an inconspicuous area to ensure that it does not damage the paint film. Van Metre Homes provides a voucher for a paint touch up kit at the time of settlement, which you pick up at your convenience from the paint store. The kits should include one quart of flat wall and ceiling paint plus one quart semi-gloss for painting trim. Because we know painting is at the top of your to-do list, Van Metre has also included a discount card in your warranty packet to purchase new paint.
