Keeping the exterior of your home clean and updated increases the curb appeal and makes you feel good about pulling into your driveway. Homeowners should take pride in how their house looks from both the inside and outside, and putting a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of the house is a great way to update the look of your home.
However, this is a huge undertaking, and most homeowners use a house painting service to tackle the project. Here are five good reasons why it's best to use professional exterior home painters.
Did you know that you need to wash, scrape and caulk the exterior of your house before you paint over it? Most people think they can just add a new coat of paint over the existing coat and have the house looking like new. Mistakes like these are made often by inexperienced house painters, or by homeowners who want to do it themselves to save money.
Knowing what needs to be done and in what order makes a big difference when it comes to the lifespan of your exterior paint and its aesthetic value.
Getting the Colors Right
If you've ever painted walls yourself, you have likely been faced with the problem of the paint color not being what you expected when you put it on the walls. Now imagine your entire house is a color you don't like, after just spending so much time and effort repainting it yourself. After many years in the business of exterior home painters, we know right away how a color will translate from the paint can to the exteriors of your home, and can guide you in the right direction based on the result you want.
Using the Right Tools
Here's a hint: a paint roller from the hardware store is ineffective. You can end up spending quite a bit of money just purchasing the right materials to paint your house effectively. Professional house painting services already have what they need to get the job done right.
Another perk of hiring seasoned exterior home painters is the time frame. Taking on this project on your own, you could spend weeks getting everything done if you can't devote 8 hours a day to it. A team of people working together reduces the time drastically.
Licensed and Insured
