Your time is valuable. Why not hire a professional painter for your next project?

For simple painting project you can do it yourself. But using a professional painting contractor takes the stress out of painting your home when it comes to painting both interior and exterior of the house. But finding the right one by considering costs, efficiency and quality of work is an important decision that requires careful consideration. Finding a quality and reliable carpenters is a step by step process.

Use the following tips to hire the right professional for any painting project:

  • Determine what you need:

Before you search for a professional house painter, you need to decide few things for example what kind of paint, interior walls or exterior walls, one coat paint or double coat, square feet of the area where paint need to be done, what surface need to be painted.When you explain clearly to the painter what you need it will help him to give you an estimated quote.

  • Get estimates:

Always get estimated quotes from at least 2-3 painters. Getting multiple quotes will help you to choose the right painter within your budget.Most of the time estimated quote should fall roughly within the same price range.

  • Check for credentials:

Do not just select a painter based on only price. Find out about their ratings and reviews from their previous customers,years of experience they have, work ethics, license to operate, check their reference. Because without all these details matters a lot whether a painter will do quality work or not.

  • Agreement:

Make sure you either sign a contract or communicate properly with the painter before painting work starts about who is responsible for clean and removal of paints from all surfaces, who will select the paint brand, buying of materials, days it will take to finish the painting work and other details.

Finding a skilled, reliable painter can seem like an overwhelming task at first. The key is taking it one step at a time and using common sense. Since a painter’s work can add considerable value to your home, it’s worth investing time and thought to find the best in the business.

What to do before painting a wall?

Preparing a room before you start painting is the most important step before you even start painting. The actual painting of the walls takes less time and is not as important as the prep of walls for paint Also for a large paint job hiring the professional painter is a good option.

 Clear out the room:

The first step to prepare your walls to before painting is to clear out all movable furniture such as sofas, TV, etc.cover the large furniture’s with clothes to protect against splatter of paint. Removing these furniture’s will help you to paint your walls easier.

Clean the room and repair the wall:

Remove any dust from the floor and make sure repair any holes,peeling,cracks, on the wall before starting painting the wall.fill any nail holes,dents and allow it to dry for 2-4 hours and then second coat if required.also clean the wall that need to be painted and the surfaces of kitchen and bathrooms.

Taping and Masking:

Once your walls are clean, the next step to prepare walls before painting is to mask off any areas you don’t want painted.Mask light switches,windows,wood trim and other areas you are not painting. It is better to mask the room completely before painting as opposed to just doing one wall, then the next. Leave the masking tape on the walls after you have painted, and wait for the paint to dry before removing it.

Paint priming:

If you are merely refreshing your paint with the same color and type of paint, you do not need to apply a primer to the whole surface. If you have made small repairs, just spot prime the repairs before painting.

However, if you have made large repairs, it has been a long time since your last paint job, you are switching colors or type of paint or are painting bare surfaces, such as drywall, your paint job will turn out much better by applying a paint primer before painting.Paint primers mainly will help you ave money on paint including it even out repairs and defects if any.

Once you have followed the five steps to prepare your walls before painting, you are ready to paint! Although prepping your walls for paint can seem like a lot of work, the end result of a great paint job is worth the effort.
