Always Do This First

Posted by admin

Before even considering doing an interior house painting job you should walk through the area to be painted with your customer. During this inspection point out any paint that is in places where paint doesn’t belong. Look at all of the carpet, tile, or natural wood floor to find any paint spots. Frequently, paint can be found along the baseboards of the room. Also look for scratches on the wood or tile floor. Check wallpaper, counter tops, and any areas where there should not be any paint. Check all natural wood trim and doors for any paint. Look for spatters of paint on all of the floors.

As you inspect the area to be painted for any unwanted paint, also check the contents of the room. Look carefully at the furniture in the room to see if there are any cracks or cuts on any of it. Check for any flimsy or loose furniture which might be damaged or ready to fall apart, especially when moved. Sliding furniture across the carpet can buckle the carpet. Point out any “hills” in the carpet that already exist. Look at the decorations in the area to be painted. Inspect any knickknacks or other decorations for damage or cracks. Also note any cracked windows or cut screens. In our walk through inspection we are just pointing out any paint spots or damage in the area to be painted before we even start painting so that we are not blamed for any irregularities that we did not cause on our interior house painting job. Believe it or not, the people living in the home to be painted may not even be aware of these things. They are easily overlooked until the final inspection of the area after the painting is complete. This is the time that the customer looks at every little detail and may find things that are overlooked in the normal course of things.

Why Paint Anyway?

Posted by admin

Why should you paint rooms on the interior of a house? You will be better able to answer this question when the paint job is completed. At that time you will be proud of the beautiful new rooms that you have created. An interior paint job makes the home more attractive, clean, fresh and beautiful, just like it is brand new. Nothing improves the appearance of the home better than a fresh paint job.

 

Before you paint there may be holes or cracks in the walls and ceiling. Also furniture often makes unattractive marks on the walls. You may just want a change. A good interior house painting totally transforms a home. One of the greatest reasons that I love to complete a paint job is to see how good it makes the homeowner feel. They are always thrilled and grateful for the work.

 

Another reason to paint an interior is to increase the value of a home. Also, if you are selling the house, it will almost always sell shortly after the application of the home paint, and for a higher price than it would have before the painting. I have painted homes and later heard from the homeowner that the house sold for more than they expected. Many times an appraisal after the painting is for a higher value than it was previous to the work. If there is a vacant home that has been on the market for a long time with no offers, a new coat of paint almost always sells the home within a couple of months. I know this because I have painted a lot of vacant interiors for realtors, and after I am done the house sells in short order.

 

As you can see, there are a lot of reasons to paint the interior of a home. So let’s get to it!
