What to Look for in a High Gloss Painting Contractor
Know how to choose a good high gloss painting company by looking for the qualities that separate the pros from the rest. Our painting contractors approach every project as a unique experience, adjusting their approach to accommodate all factors to provide the best high-shine finish possible for your surfaces.
Shoreline High Gloss offers a superior preparation and painting process to nail a pristine finish for every home, every time:
1. Preparation and Precision
Proper preparation is crucial for a successful painting outcome. You deserve the peace of mind knowing our painting contractors will take the utmost care to thoroughly prepare your home, walls and surfaces to ensure a long-lasting, professional finish.
At Shoreline High Gloss, we’ve perfected a time-tested painting process that delivers the superior results you’re looking for:
- We protect your property: We take paint prep very seriously. Our specialists always paper floors, tape around windows, cover tiles, safeguard furniture, cover decorative hardware, wrap exposed plumbing and more. When we say we’ll thoroughly protect your home, flooring and furnishings, we mean it.
- We fix imperfections, sand and prime to perfection: A top-quality gloss finish starts with a flawless base. We catch and fill every nail hole and wall flaw, no matter how small. Walls, cabinetry and trim undergo several passes of spackling, caulking, sanding, primer and careful review to create the smoothest pre-paint foundation.
- We inhibit particulate interference with your finish: Shoreline High Gloss professionals have perfected the process to create a dust-free, mirror-like paint finish. Our team thoroughly cleans and wipes down surfaces with denatured alcohol to a white-glove-worthy standard to prevent surface dust from settling in paint coatings.
2. Experience and Expertise
High gloss paint finishes are gorgeous — when done right. When choosing a high gloss painting contractor, remember that anything less than a flawless paint application by a properly trained hand will show every imperfection, brushstroke or speck of dust. With decades of experience in the business, our paint professionals have the experience and specialized training to create beautiful high-shine treatments others can’t.

3. Certifications and Insurance
Without the proper insurance and state-issued licensing, you aren’t hiring a legitimate painting contractor. Before you hire a painting company, it’s imperative to know if they have their credentials in order. Certifications showcase qualifications for the job and prove they can protect their employees — and your property — in the event of an accident.
Our exemplary qualifications underscore why prestigious clients and esteemed designers highly recommend Shoreline High Gloss:

4. Product Quality
As the desired shine in a paint finish increases, so does the difficulty of a successful application. For a glossy finish, conventional methods and domestic paints won’t do. A painter can meticulously prepare and use precise painting methods, but the final outcome will fall short if the products used are substandard. Too many contractors use subpar paints with chalk and other inexpensive fillers.
As a Fine Paints of Europe Master Certified Painter, Shoreline High Gloss utilizes only the highest caliber formulas from one of the world’s leading luxury paint brands to bring our clients’ paint gloss finishes to life. You can trust our products are:
- Architectural-grade: We use the highest quality primers, and our paints are filler-free, highly pigmented and composed of the finest bases.

- Eco-friendly: An excellent option for interior spaces, our odorless, 100% water-based Eurolux Acrylic Interior gloss paint is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified (LEED) and contains low volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
- Durable: Our highest quality products ensure your cabinets, doors and other heavily used surfaces can take a scrubbing and look incredible for years.
- Marine quality: High-gloss Hollandlac paint is so resilient, your boat could be painted with this and sail into the Atlantic Ocean with zero issues.
- Selection: Paints from Fine Paints of Europe come in virtually unlimited shades and colors.
