For small quantities of paint, we much prefer that a customer take a good sized sample (like a piece of painted wood 4 inches by 4 inches) to a store like Lowes or Sherwin-Williams and have them color match it. The Client should immediately use a bit of the new paint on the structure to see how close the match is. In many cases the match is very good, but sometimes, further color adjustments need to be made.
Color-matched paint that we buy for a Client is not returnable to the store. Therefore, the Client has to pay us for that paint, whether or not they want it to be used.
