How to prepare your walls for a professional paint job
Before we start on your project, you can prepare your home by:
- Moving and covering furniture
You should remove hard furnishings like light stands and coffee tables from a room that’ll be painted. It may be impractical to remove larger furniture like beds, sofas, and dining sets. Instead, move them to the center of the room in question and cover them to prevent damage.
- Remove appliances and electronics
You should also move your appliances and electronics, including sound systems, stove, gaming system, refrigerator, and TV. These items can be expensive to replace when damaged during the project. If you don’t have a cloth large enough to cover the appliances, don’t worry, Rye Brook Painters will come with a cloth you can use.
- Ornaments and wall hangings
Wall hanging will obstruct a painter during the project. Carefully remove the painting, picture frames, candleholders, mirrors, clocks, and decorative arts and carefully wrap them to keep them from breaking. You might be tempted to pile the décor pieces at the corner or center of the room, but they aren’t completely safe there, especially when working on the ceiling.
- Protect the soft furnishing
Soft furnishings like rugs and mats should be stored safely. Moreover, blinds, drapes, and curtains should be kept safe. You can do this by rolling the mat and rugs and covering them with plastic. This step is important even when you aren’t working on the ceiling.
If you need work done efficiently and affordably, you should get a professional painting company like Rye Brook Painters on board. Rye Brook Painters will handle the project fast and safely using the right equipment. Feel free to call us for a quick consultation and a quotation. Rest easy since we’ll guide you through the process and get the best results.
Why you should hire a professional painter
Professional painters know which details to keep an eye on during projects. They understand the process of preparing a wall for painting, which bases to pick, and how to test them. Professional painters like Rye Brook Painters know places to purchase the best products for every painting project requirement. But even if you’d like to get the painting materials yourself, they’ll offer advice on how to go about it.
- Fast Service
Even though painting projects take time, expert painters can work within short deadlines without compromising the quality of work you do. While the project proceeds, you can continue living in your home. This is possible because they can handle the project in phases and while you are away. Most professional painting companies like Rye Brook Painters work around your time and availability.
- Color mixing techniques
In some instances, you’ll want to retouch the paint in some spots instead of redoing the entire wall. When you want to do this without knowing the colors, things can get complicated and messy. Working with a professional means you have an expert who can mix colors perfectly until they get what your painting project needs. Most professional painters offer color consultations which make choosing colors that are perfect for your lifestyle easier. They can provide paint samples in different room orientations and lights to help you get the perfect one.
- Professional painters are insured
Believe it or not, painting projects have some risk elements, especially if you try to reach high spots on a ladder. Professional contractors have safety and health insurance for their employees. This way, in the event of an accident during the project, you don’t have to cater to the expenses. While this might seem unnecessary, working with an insured painter provides you with peace of mind.
- Finish all preparations
Choosing a color scheme is fun. However, before your walls are painted, they need preparation which can be a tedious process. Professional painting contractors prepare surfaces for you. They do this by scraping off the old paint and smoothening it by using sandpaper. They’ll use primers to get longer-lasting results and cover your furniture with dust sheets to protect them from dirt and damage during the painting project.
- Work with timeframes
Because professionals painting contractors have experience in completing similar projects, they have an easier time predicting how long it’ll take to complete the project. In addition to knowing how long a project will take, they know exactly what they’ll do to ensure they stick to tight deadlines and how they respond when there’s an unexpected event. And if they determine the scope of the project will need more services than anticipated, they’ll know where to source for resources needed.
- Have the right tools
To complete a painting project successfully, you’ll need to have the right tools in hand. Unfortunately, most painting tools are expensive. As a DIYer investing in the tools isn’t a wise financial move. On the flip side, a professional painter should have quality painting tools. And since they handle numerous painting projects often, their investment in painting tools pays for itself. Moreover, they know how to use the tools to get the best results for your painting project.
- The job gets finished
Even though painting projects are fun to get into, they can be frustrating and tiring. Often DIYers leave projects incomplete when the ride gets tough, and there’s a lot to do. The urge to quit in the middle of a project or rush the process will always result in a disaster. Professionals need to complete projects to get complete payment for the project. As such, they have more than enough motivation to complete the project.
Painting can be super fun. And whether it’s painting a single wall or the entire house, painting can easily turn into a DIY project. Armed with YouTube videos, you convince yourself you can handle the project successfully.
Not to rain on your parade, but it’s always better to hire a professional to handle your painting project. Painting and decorating your space yourself will have you forgetting crucial steps and messing up basic projects.
This is where Inti Painting comes in. As a professional service, we are dedicated to providing fast and efficient painting services at affordable costs.
