Just like us, our homes can start to age and lose their original luster as time goes on. Is this something you’ve noticed too?
The good news is that you can help your home find its way back with a good old paint job 🙂
Before you get started though, you may want to consider hiring professionals for the job if you’re not too experienced with house painting.
Teams with experience can give your home a paint-over that’ll make it look as fresh as a daisy while reducing any hassle, stress or unnecessary expenditure on your part! If you’ve missed any of my previous posts, here’s a look at how professional painters help you make your home look brand new inside and out.
They give your home a good pre-paint cleanup
The first step to a good paint job is a thorough, meticulous cleanup.
Every professional knows that before a paint job, you need to strip a home down to its bones.
Older homes will show a lot of age on their structures, from chipping paint, stucco damage to water damage from leaky pipes. Painting over these defects can result in pretty shoddy outcomes, so cleaning and fixing these up is the first step of the process.
Water damage may not be too obvious on the exterior of your home, but on interior walls, they’ll stand out and make your walls look old and worn out. Professionals can spot these blemishes and fix them with filler and water-based binder before painting.
For chipping and peeling paint (usually found on exterior walls), we generally start by removing the damaged, older paint before starting a new paint job.
Removing paint sounds easy but in my experience, it needs to be done just right or you end up damaging your walls!
Your painting team will remove your entire exterior coat for the job with the right equipment like electric sanders. It’s only after your home has shed its old coat and we’ve finished fixing other problems that we start the painting process.
Professionals know all about the latest painting trends
When your home is ready for its new paint job, it’s time to decide what painting style and colors you’ll be using. You could either have your space painted in its original style or you could try something fresh 🙂
Professional painters have a pretty good understanding of current exterior and interior paint color trends and they also know which paint works best for your walls.
After finding out what your preferences are, they’ll make sure your home looks exactly the way you want it to!
They know how to achieve the perfect finish
Making your home look brand new is not just about the painting style you choose or repairing the damage on your walls—it’s also about painting it the right way.
If you’re not very experienced with these techniques, you may end up with a lackluster finish—I’ve seen this happen more times than I can count.
Haphazard paint strokes and uneven coats can make your home look just as worn out as it may have been before the painting started! As professionals, we know the right way to paint certain parts of your home, right down to the brush strokes and the amount of paint to use.
You can always expect a perfect, flawless paint job when you work with the pros.
