Choosing the right paint sheen!

A paint’s finish, or “sheen” refers to the surface texture the paint creates as well as how much light bounces off of the painted surface.

When in doubt, an “eggshell” finish is always a safe bet. It has a soft, washable look that works well in living rooms, family rooms and hallways. Eggshell finishes are low gloss, but more reflective than flat sheen’s. Eggshell also is more easily cleaned that a flat finish and is more durable.

No need to sweat over which sheen to use, call us, let us sweat for you!

Historic Biltmore


Biltmore is one of Americas most popular historic landmarks.  The first house pictured is from the late 1800’s and the latter is early 1900’s, both in Historic Biltmore, both completed by us in 2015.  Older historic homes like these are a lot more than your typical repaint.  Frequently asked questions include: “does my house have lead paint?” or “does my house need to be stripped of all paint first?”. With 30 plus years of local experience, Dave Burlett Painting and staff will listen to all your questions and come up with a game plan custom for your home that will make it feel like new again.  So give us a call at 828-243-4944 or contact us right here on our site and let experience be your guide.
