Painting is a great way for home improvisation. Painting can alter the look of a home with spending huge time and money. Selection of the painter should also be good for quality work at your home. Here are the factors which should be considered before selecting a painter.
1). Lead painting – there are many homes which were constructed long back and that time lead painting was used. You need to check that if your home fit in that criteria. You need to check if lead painting was done that time. If yes, you need to look for an painter who has expertise in this particular job as lead must still be there in original layers.
2). Professionals – you should trust professionals for the quality work. Painting consists of many steps which need careful work for best results. And, an expert painter will help in preparing the surface for the painting work, mixing of primer and preparation, choosing the right brand of paint and number of paint coats required for best results. Professionals are trained and have good experience in the work they do. They will suggest you right options that will give good results for home.
3). Preparing your home for the work – preparation of painting is very important. If the base of the paint is prepared in a good way, the paint will reflect well on the walls. If the preparation of mixing of the paints is not done in a right way, then problems, like cracks, peels, etc., will appear, even if the best quality paints are used. If you home is due in cleaning, you should finish all that before the painting work starts. For example, filling up the cracks on the wall, removing dirt from the corners, cleaning all the deposits near the sink area and other cleaning should be done before the start of painting project. This is very important as these pending issues will interfere will the quality of work delivered.
4). Extra cost associated with painting – you should clearly ask the painting professional if there is any extra cost associated apart from the quotation he shares with you. Activities, like removing the furniture and other stuff, may not be included in the quote shared by you, but the painter can ask you later. Other things, like walls/ceilings taller, paint crown moulding and baseboards more than average sizes, may also add up to the additional cost.
5). Choice of paint colour – before choosing the paint the most important point of consideration is the space of the room. If your room is small, use light colours as it will make the room look big and if the room is big you can use dark colours also. It’s always better to take a small can of the paint shade you have in your preference. 6). Finish – right finish paints are very important to choose.
