The first thing that anyone will see when they come to your home is the exterior. Long winter months filled with cold, wet weather and wind can wreck havoc on your paint and can make your home look shabby or old before its time. Whether your objective is simple home improvement or if you are looking to sell your home, paying attention to that initial “curb appeal” is the best place to start.
The warmer months of late spring and summer are the perfect time to spruce up your home. A fresh coat of paint or stain as well as some minor repairs and restoration are just what your home needs to look its best. However, painting the exterior of your home is a much bigger job than many people realize. In this instance, hiring a professional painting company that has experience with outdoor, exterior painting will give you the results you desire, without taking an entire month of weekends to complete.
The Initial Consultation
When you hire a professional painting company you will the difference right away from the very first visit. A representative should come to your home for an initial consultation where you’ll talk about the colors and type of paint you want used, as well as setting up a time table for the completion of the job. A reputable, experienced company will always give you a start and end date for your painting project, giving you peace of mind and confidence in a job well done.
The idea here is to improve or maintain the value of your home, so it is important that you hire a painting company that has a lot of experience working with the type of house you own. Homes with multiple levels, special architectural designs and other unique features will benefit most from a professional painting contractor. That being said, a contractor with years of experience working in the southern New Hampshire or eastern Massachusetts area will know much more about what your home requires than a contractor that just moved to the area from the west coast. Exterior painting is one of those jobs where experience really counts.
When you hire a professional painting company to tackle the exterior of your home, you receive some built-in protections up front. Hiring painters eliminates your own personal risk, keeping you off ladders and out of precarious positions throughout the painting process. Professionals bring professional equipment that most home owners don’t have access to or would have to invest a lot of money into buying or renting in order to get the job done right. Plus, most professional contractors guarantee their work, making you feel much more confident about the finished product.
Ask About Extras
In addition to painting your home’s exterior, you should ask your professional contractor about sprucing up other problem areas around your home. Decks, patios, garages, sheds and other outdoor projects that need to be painted can also be hired out to professionals. When the representative comes out for the initial consultation, show them all the areas of your home and property that you would like to improve. A fresh coat of paint goes a long way to making all the areas of your home look and feel brand new.
