As a homeowner there is nothing more exciting than the idea of painting your home yourself. A fresh coat of paint makes everything look so much better right? You can choose colors for the inside or the outside and just get to work! Maybe you will even use a paint sprayer because they look like they get the job done fast!
Are you out of your mind? Have you thought about the work involved, especially if you are considering doing your own exterior painting? All of the scraping and cleaning that needs to be done, the preparation for laying on a new coat of paint and the small repairs that are going to be inevitable are going to be your job. If you have experience, and time then go ahead and jump right in there and get that job done. If you don’t have any experience it might be time to think about painting services.
• When calling around for painting services try not to get excited about an over the phone conversation about the price. The painting contractor is going to want to come out and look at the house. Never go for the first quote you receive. Call around and see what your best options are.
• Do not be afraid to ask for references from customers and pictures of past jobs. A reputable painting company should be able to provide these.
• Find out if they are experienced with house painting. Residential painting is very different from commercial. If you need interior painting, make sure to specify. Talk to people who have had similar jobs done for them. This is a great way to find a good painting service.
• Ask for what materials and paint they are using. Make sure everything is quality. Qu
