There is nothing like a fresh coat of paint to liven things up around the home, add some curb appeal and increase the property value at the same time. That being said, most homeowners are going to hire out the job of a painter at some point because it can be quite a daunting task. At Jehody Painting, we want to put your mind at ease and let you know that the services we provide will always be done with the utmost professionalism in mind.
At times, preparing your mind for hiring a painter can be the most difficult task. After all, there are things that can go wrong during the painting process, some of which could have serious repercussions. For example, what would happen if the painters dropped paint inside of the home and it splattered across the carpet? Or perhaps they got careless and tipped over the China cabinet. You can rest assured, if you have hired Jehody Painting, you are dealing with professionals who will treat your home as if it was their own. The hard part is over, you’ve chosen a painter. Now it’s time to do what you can to make the job go as smoothly as possible. These house painting tips for homeowners can help to point you in the right direction.
First of all, it’s important to understand that painting is an art form, not a hobby. It is always best to let the professionals handle the situation. Allow them to do their job and you will be happy with the end result.
You should also not overlook the necessity for preparation to help with your painter. Perhaps you got a few bids for painting services and some of them came in much lower than others. Believe it or not, many painters will make up the difference in the bid price by skimping on the preparation process. In any quality paint job, 30% of the overall work will go into preparing the area. It is not something that can be skipped.
Of course, you should not leave all of the prep work to the painters, they are going to be quite busy taking care of your job. If you want things to go as smoothly as possible, and we all do, be sure that your home is ready for the painters to arrive. Just in case they are painting the exterior, trim the bushes or shrubs to leave enough clearance. If they are doing interior painting, put away any knickknacks that could slow them down.
A walk-through is an essential part of the painting process. As soon as the painting is finished, take a close look at every area of the home to look for any missed spots or issues that need to be corrected. Don’t wait to ask for the walk-through, make sure that the touch-ups are done immediately.
