1. Proper Painting Preparation

Professional painters will take the time to properly prepare your house before starting any painting work. The preparation processes for painting your home’s interior and exterior are:

Interior Home Painting Preparation

Before starting to paint the interior of your home with high-quality paint, a professional painter will take the time to properly prepare the area being painted by carefully covering floors and furniture, removing fixtures and hardware, and repairing damaged sections of walls and woodwork.

Exterior Home Painting Preparation

In order to properly prepare the exterior of your home for a new paint job, a professional painter will clean the area and carefully sand and scrape away any loose paint. Once this been completed, the professional painter will caulk any gaps to prevent moisture from seeping inside and prime the bare wood before applying high-quality, long-lasting exterior paint.

2. Safer Work Environment

Unlike many homeowners who choose to paint their own homes, professional painters have the equipment necessary for safely painting homes that are more than one storey. This means that they will have the right sized ladders for painting at different heights around your home. Professional painting companies will also be insured, so you will never have to worry about covering medical expenses in the event of a mishap.

3. Clean Lines and High-Quality Work

Since professional painters are experts in producing high-quality work, you can trust that the paint will be applied evenly without any runs or splotches of paint. A professional painter will also know how to properly tape edges and which brush or roller will work best for each section of your home, preventing the base colour from getting on the trim and vice versa.

4. Time Saver

Painting can be a time-consuming process due to all the preparation and planning needed to ensure a proper paint job. Hiring a professional painter can save you a lot of time and stress because they will take care of the entire process for you, from moving furniture and taking down wall decor to buying the right supplies, taping wall edges, and painting.

5. Complete Cleanup

Once your house has been painted and you are completely satisfied with the work completed, professional painters will clean up after themselves, putting everything back to the way it was before they started. This means that you will never have to worry about putting furniture back in place or cleaning up discarded paint chips.
