Before paint rollers were invented, walls only acquired hues after run-ins with projectile tomato sauce and the tongues of rogue Easter bunnies. Refresh sans saliva with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get interior painting for one room, up to 300 square feet of wall space, from Student Works Painting (up to a $210 value).
Student Works Painting deploys a fleet of thoroughly trained undergrads who prime and paint customers’ walls as a means of earning funds for tuition, books, and other expenses for the upcoming school year ($0.70/sq. ft. for two coats). In order to ensure that its matriculating employees can uphold company-wide quality, safety, and fashion standards, each worker undergoes an intensive training program—though Student Works is also insured. After a survey of the room scheduled for fresh coat application, workers ready soon-to-be painted surfaces by washing and sanding them as well as scraping off any bumps or barnacles. Depending on the preparation needed for the room, and time added for things such as closets and windows, an additional charge may apply. A free consultation is conducted before any work is started to determine if preparation is necessary.
A round of spot priming then commences before roller-wielding workers paint and stain all areas, taking care to apply pigment smoothly and evenly. Student Works performs a complete cleanup, removing all debris and clinging wall gnomes and reviewing their work with the homeowner, who gets a three-year guarantee on all services. Those looking to spruce up their domiciles' outsides can use this Groupon toward Student Works' professional-level exterior painting services.
