matching a paint color

Post by thisisreallycomplicated » Fri Aug 02, 2019 2:39 am

Does anyone here know if Sodimac matches paint colors? And what color matching is called here? I might rent a house that needs painting. But I'd rather just touch up what's already there, and avoid most of the paint fumes. Thanks.

They do, although I'm not sure what it's called here. Results vary greatly - from a complete mismatch in Sodimac at Estacion Central to an amazing 100% match in Lo Barnechea.

Thanks. It sounds like it's worth a try. If I rent this house, I'll try washing the walls first. And if that doesn't work, I'll try some touchup paint. It doesn't have to be perfect.
