Does someone have to remain home while the painting is being done?

No. This presents no problem whatsoever for us. We normally arrive on the job before you need to leave for work and special arrangements can always be made to pick up a key ahead of time if needed. We have never had a problem when it comes to the trustworthiness of our painters. Your home will be respected the same as it would be if you were there. However we also realize that many people are uncomfortable with leaving workmen in their house unattended. We understand this hesitancy by some and are not offended by that.
