Duco finish or Duco paint is a kind of finishing method on the final furniture making process. Giving your furniture a Duco finish involves hiding the natural grains of wood and covering it in a layer of opaque paint. Duco, when done well has the ability to give a luxurious and expensive look to any ordinary furniture.

Applying Duco paint requires highly skilled painters as the wood/MDF sheets first needs sanding to smoothen the surface and then use elaborate machines such as compressors and spray guns to apply the paint. 

We have painters at Freshcoats who specialize in Duco painting and have completed many Duco projects earlier.

FAQ

It’s very simple. Just book a free estimate with us and we will visit your property and measure all the paintable surfaces that you would want to paint and based on your product choice will draw you an estimate and email it to you. 

We will measure the walls and ceilings along with all paintable surfaces like doors, grills, window shutters. Measurements are done physically using a regular tape and /or electronic laser tape

Very accurate. Measurements are usually conducted in the presence of you or your representative. We do make it clear in our estimate that the measurements may vary by 5% to 10% based on new surfaces that may come up for painting (a newly installed partition/ door/ wall. Bills are drawn based on the estimated measurements and if in case there is a variation in the scope of work, then we also do post measurements after the job is complete.

We provide our estimates based on the area that is to be painted. We quote a per square foot or square meter rate and measure different areas separately where different kinds of paints are used. Eg: you may choose to paint the walls with a luxury emulsion, the ceilings with economy emulsion and doors with oil paint. Our estimate will segregate the different items and quote you different rates and derive at the total cost for painting.

Everyone has a budget allocated for home improvement work. However we don’t quote on lumpsum basis unless it is a very small job or a job which is difficult to measure. : eg: engraved jalli work of small quantity, or doing one wall. We will measure the area of your property and based on your budget, we will try to give you the best combination of paints that will fit your needs.

If you call us for painting a home, office or shop, take our estimate and don’t decide to paint for whatever reason, we won’t charge you. We would have been happy to have provided you with our ideas and estimates so that you can make an informed choice. However we do one visit which is free. Once you get the estimate you will get time to assess and then confirm if you want to hire us. Subsequent visits without your confirmation are not made or would be chargeable.

Yes. Only a non refundable token amount amounting to 10% of the estimated value. The remaining 60% of the amount is payable on the day the material, labour and equipments arrive at your property. The last 30% to be paid on the day of completion of the job.

In that case your token amount is non refundable and you will lose it. This is basically done to prevent whimsical confirmations and to cover the costs for the planning work that we would have put into painting your property. However due to some unimaginable situation you defer the painting work, that should be alright with us. You can defer for the duration of validity of the estimate at no extra cost. If you defer the job to a duration outside the scope of the validity of the estimate, then in that case the prevailing rates of that time can be applicable.

We meet again and decide the colour schemes of your property. Then we take a lead time of 4-5 days to arrange the colours of your choice and the required number of painters for the job. Then we ship all the material and send painters to your property on the agreed start day and commence the work.

If our painting team is free and the nature of the painting job is simple: Eg paint an empty flat in one colour; then we can do it. However if it is a working space, more colours involved, dependency on other agencies like electricians, carpenters, then we usually take a lead time of 4-5 days. But you are free to ask for a quicker start day. If we can, we certainly will.

On interiors, after you have removed your delicate items, all areas or remaining items, will be covered with clean drop cloths or plastic sheeting. On exteriors, shrubs and surrounding areas will be protected so that no evidence of paint splatter or paint peelings remains.

Please move all small items and breakables. Unless agreed otherwise, we will move and protect all of the furniture and fixtures.

It depends on various factors again like the kind of existing paint, the furniture in the room, the nature of the room, the kind of paint applied and so on.

The maximum mess is creates while sanding the walls before and after putty application. Sanding is done to create a rough surface on which the subsequent coats can bond and to smoothen the putty applied to level the wall imperfections. To minimize the paint and putty particles from falling on the floor, we use mechanized sander machines with vaccum suction to absorb the dust. To prevent your floor/carpets from getting unclean due to the falling particles, we laydown plastic sheets on the floor.

Yes. We will remove all paint stains that may have accidently spilled on your floor, window ledges, glass panes, door knobs. Water based colors get removed with water and scrub ad for oil based coours, paint removers or thinners are used.

Yes. Most people we work for are not home while work is going on. While you are at work or running errands, our crew will be busy painting. We shall provide you with copies of the ID’s of the painters when the work commences. We also provide our painters with a uniform t shirt for easy identification.

For an empty apartment/Showroom it takes around 4-5 days.

For an apartment where people are living, it usually takes longer based on the number of rooms given for work at a time.

For bigger commercial spaces, it would entirely depend on the area and working conditions.

We generally work from Monday to Saturday from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm. We can do work at other hours if needed, but these are our standard working hours.

Please let our office know about it or feel free to contact your estimator directly. Most of the time it is more cost-effective for us to make a change or do additional during the course of the project than to have us come back after the project is complete.

Interior paint typically gets dirty in many situations: hand prints around switches and knobs; splashes in kitchens and bathrooms; marks on hallways and corridors; “soot” accumulating above electric lamps and other heat sources. Removing dirt before it accumulates not only improves appearance, it reduces chances of it getting permanently embedded in the paint film.

Check for dirt periodically and assume it will be present in and near cooking areas (airborne cooking oil) and at all places at hand height. Always initially clean the surface with a mild detergent using a sponge or a soft cloth.


All paints, varnishes, and solvents contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Exposure to VOCs can trigger asthma attacks, respiratory problems, eye irritation, nausea, or dizziness. Because of these health concerns, a number of paint manufacturers have introduced Low or No VOC paint alternatives.
