Tips for choosing the right paint (that nobody tells you about)March 11, 2021
Ask yourself this question: What is your most prized material asset in the world?
The answer will most probably be your home.
Many of us have worked all our lives for the perfect house. Unfortunately or not, this goes beyond buying or building our sanctuary. On a near-constant basis, you probably think about what you can do to feel more proud of your home.
Spring cleaning aside, you probably like doing quick touch-ups on the outside and inside from time to time.
One of the most deceptively tricky parts of this process is house painting, in my opinion. It’s common to think you can do this by yourself. We’ve even done a few posts on what you need to consider if you are.
That said, it’s not as straightforward as it seems. Sometimes, you may end up doing more harm than good if you’re trying to rush the job, don’t have the right tools, or just don’t know what you’re doing.
A professional and reputed painting service is usually the more practical choice. Apart from professional workmanship, house interiors painters finish projects on time and (ideally) provide good value for money.
Choosing the right service, though, can be quite the process. That’s why I hope to help by putting together a list of questions you should ask yourself when choosing house interior painters.
Are they well-reputed?
Any product or service has an identity and a reputation. House interior painters are no different!
The reputation of each painting service will depend on things like the quality of the work, completion time, and affordability.
Take a little time looking into how certain painting service providers are rated and perceived in your community. As much as you can, try and find trusted recommendations. Remember—happy and satisfied clients will vouch for the reputation of a painting service that’s transformed their home inside-out!
Are they licensed and insured?
The state of California requires professional house painters to get themselves a professional license. The licensing process, here, requires painters to go through various training programs.
While this may mean that their services are a little more expensive, you can rest assured knowing that your house is in qualified hands.
Insurance is also a factor to look into when choosing a contractor.
Professional painters face many occupational hazards and insuring against these is a sign that your contractors are doing things the right way. If not, you may find yourself burdened with paying for medical bills in the event of an accident!
What do their pre- and post-painting procedures look like?
As a professional painter, I can tell you preparation is the most important step in this process. Many of us even say that 90% of any paint job is preparation!
That’s why you must do a bit of digging on what the right pre- and post-paint procedures look like. Moreover, if you have specific preferences about paint types and chemicals due to acrylate allergies, you need to research the types of products used by your chosen contractors.
Good house interior painters will also clean up after themselves and get rid of residues of chemical irritants. They make sure your home looks and feels healthy and new after the project!
Are they a good fit for you?
Budget and personal preferences can also affect how you choose painting contractors.
If you value a more one-on-one approach to customer service, look for a painting service that sends the actual painter to discuss your requirements before you get your quote.
You will always find that this experience is easier when you choose contractors that provide the professional services you’re looking for with a more personal touch. As we like to say, big company skills, small company feels.
Make sure your home is all the #LifestyleGoals when you choose professional house interior painters
As your most prized material possession, your home deserves plenty of TLC; a good paint job will make your space pop and make you feel like it’s exactly where you belong.
Keep the things I’ve outlined in mind when you’re choosing a painting contractor. A good interior painting service will give your space the quality and long-lasting paint job it deserves!
