Expert Painters Offer Paint Prep Advice to DIYers

To give DIYers an edge up on painting season, ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape is launching the Pro Prep Patrol, a team of expert professional painters who will provide free painting prep advice to DIYers during some of the busiest painting weekends of the season.

“People continue to look for affordable ways to add value to their homes, and painting projects remain the number one home improvement project among both seasoned and inexperienced do-it-yourselfers,” said Paul Hansen, marketing director for 3M Construction & Home Improvement Markets.

“As we are now entering paint season, we’ve launched the ScotchBlue Pro Prep Patrol to show that proper prep work can produce super sharp paint lines and expert results. We want to help even the most inexperienced DIYers make their personal painting project a true success that they can be proud of.”

Kicking off on June 4 and 5, ScotchBlue is offering three ways to seek expert advice from its Pro Prep Patrol Team. The experts will be available at no charge to help DIYers achieve professional looking results for any painting project:

  • Interact with an expert for painting advice through a Skype Hotline – Callers can connect via Skype to show their painting dilemmas and receive personalized step-by-step solutions from a ScotchBlue Pro Prep Patrol expert from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. ET on June 4 and 5.
  • Talk to a professional painter and get advice by calling 1-855-HLP-PAINT (855-457-7246) – DIYers can talk live to a Pro Prep Patrol expert and receive tips and solutions from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET on June 4 and 5.
  • Get expert advice during an in-home consultation – On June 11 and 12, ScotchBlue Pro Prep Patrol experts will provide complimentary in-home painting prep consultations in Atlanta and San Francisco. Local residents can sign up for a chance to receive a free in-home consultation by emailing ScotchBl[email protected] and outlining their personal painting struggles.

DIY enthusiasts can also learn expert painting tips and view profile videos of the ScotchBlue Pro Prep Patrol team leading up to the launch of the program by visiting the ScotchBlue Facebook page, www.facebook.com/scotchblue.
