Many homeowners think of paint as a purely cosmetic addition, but most interior painting companies believe that nothing could be farther from the truth. Paint can offer protection to your walls (and even roof in certain cases), offer a measure of insulation and facilitate mood. This is why painting isn’t as easy or as trivial as you might think.
That said, if you’ve found a painting crew to hire, you’ve already won half the battle. The only question that remains, then, is how you can contribute to a fast, seamless turnaround time. In today’s post, we detail a few things you can do to prepare your home for a paint job.
Know your budget. Like any remodeling project or home addition, painting will set your finances back, though of course it’s not as expensive as many full-fledged, whole-house renovations. Still, you can minimize your costs by drawing up a budget and sticking to it. If your interior and exterior painting company offer a catalog, browse it to find the materials and service you want, and then try to stay within the bounds of the calculated cost over the course of the project.
Declutter your space. The last thing painters need is a home with a lot of clutter. Not only does this inhibit proper traffic flow and mobility, but it also compromises safety on the job. To this end, move furniture out of the way and sweep or vacuum dust that’s accumulated in the areas that should be painted.
Find the right contractor. If you haven’t yet, finding the right residential painting contractor can make all the difference. Look for one with the appropriate licenses and accreditation. Compare reviews from past customers and gather recommendations from your friends and family, including neighbors. The idea is that the more satisfied customers a painting contractor has, the better a job they’ll probably do for you.
