How to Select an Exterior House Painter

So, you’ve decided that you want to paint your home so that it looks as fun as you are… However, you have realized that choosing the right exterior house painter isn’t easy. Here are a few tips when looking for the right painting company for your home.

Your house painter should know the latest color trends.

If you want to give your home a fresh coat of paint, make sure you’re using a color that is bringing it up to date. Color trends have changed dramatically over the years and making your home look both colorful and modern is what will have your neighbors asking if they can come over. Working with a painter that understands what colors are popular takes the stress out of sorting through the thousands of options you will see online.

Your house painter should guide you in picking the perfect color for your home.

Many painting contractors out there don’t have experience working with the latest products and trending colors. Though this doesn’t seem like a big deal, it can become a problem very quickly. Paint products are not created equal and some are much more difficult to apply correctly. Without an experienced painter, you could receive poor quality workmanship that has them come out to fix it again and again until you have to get up on a ladder and just do it yourself.

You also need someone that understands the importance of what is going to work for your home. Coordinating colors is not easy and Pinterest will only go so far to help you make the right choice. You need to look for a painter that has an eye for color matching and can show you exactly what the paint will look like with your particular lighting setup and sheen selection.

Beware of price estimates that sound too good to be true.

When making the choice of who should paint your home, for your sake, don’t necessarily pick the lowest-priced option. Although prices do vary, usually you get what you pay for. Many painters out there charge less for a reason. Cost-cutting measures like low-grade paint, little to no preparation, failure to protect your floor and valuable items or inexperienced workers lead to them coming out to repair their previous work. Don’t put you or your home through that stress. Find a painting company with experience, that uses quality materials, and does the job right. They will take the necessary steps to make your vision a reality.

The process will be easier and you’ll be happier in the end if you choose a contractor that will take the time to give you all the options upfront before you get started.
