Proper planning can save you a lot of headache when it comes to home painting. If you are considering giving your home walls a new paint coat, bookmark this!
Are you planning on house wall painting for your bedroom/kitchen/living room? If you’re concerned about the hassles of home painting, it does not have to be that way. Lucky for you, with proper planning and help of professionals, you can save time, costs and a whole lot of hassles. Here are 5 things you must consider before hiring a painter, whether you are planning for new house painting or repainting your home walls:
1. Should you hire a professional or DIY?
Most people consider home painting to be a fairly simple task. However, this might not be the case. Especially when your walls require any repair or maintenance work. If your painting requirement is to simply prep up a wall- accent wall or add a wall stencil, you can do-it-yourself using Berger iPaint range. For elaborate requirements- exterior painting, waterproofing, full house painting, it is worthwhile to hire professional painters. One of the greatest challenges for DIY painting is getting the job done on time. Most people do not have the time or skills to finish the entire house painting. It is hard to estimate how much paint you need, how to reach difficult spots- so hiring a professional painter is a great decision for new wall paintings.
2. How to find a reliable painting service?
It is easy to find the cheapest painting contractor out there, however, this could backfire immensely. A compromised paint job might look even worse than your old paint, meaning you might have to redo the painting sooner or later. Moreover, the use of mixed or cheap paints could put you at risk. Face the fact, if you want to get the job done right in the first go, hire a professional painting service. Berger Express Painting professionals are perfect for the job- apart from ensuring a seamless painting experience, they also offer colour consultancy, use advanced tools for dust-free painting and finish the job on time.
3. Preparing your home for the painting process
A professional painting service will help you prep for the painting process, be it covering the floors and adjoining rooms, moving furniture etc. However, it is advisable to do a bit of prepping yourself. Begin with allocating an area in your house to store all the equipment and tools, be it ladders, paint, plastic sheets etc. Even though the painters will bring all their tools, you may want to make room for them to store all the stuff. If you have pets or children, they are likely to rub up against the fresh coat of paint, so it is best to arrange for a room within the house or with friends and family wherein they can spend a few days.
4. Determining the budget and estimates
If you see a number scribbled on a napkin, chances are that the proposal is poorly written, lacks clarity and throws a red flag. When you hire a professional painting service, they make use of the latest technology to measure the walls, which allows them to give you an accurate quotation. So, no end moment budget shocks, with Berger Express Painting, you get a cost breakdown of all materials, labour, repair and painting work. You can avail the painting consultation as per your convenience through the Express Painting App. Post the consultation, you will receive the painting estimates on the app.
