Quick Tips from SmartReno for Your Painting Project
What should you consider when you are seeking painting services? Whether your project requires interior painting or exterior painting services, you should always look for house painters who do excellent work. These painters will have clear pricing, and they should be eager to show examples of their work and maybe even provide references. They should also offer a free estimate; a factor that is facilitated here at Smart Reno Express.
How Much Does a Painting Job Cost?
The cost of a paint job will vary depending on the nature of the project; For walls, the average price per square foot offered by professional painting services is around $0.50. This does not include features like doors, radiators, and moldings. Painting contractors will charge extra for these features. The extra cost depends on the surface and level of detail. A painting company could charge between $35 and $100 extra for doors.
Example: For a 400 sq. ft. room, budget must be between $960 and $1,700.
How to Keep Costs Low on Your Painting Project
A painting job is usually priced on size and complexity. Home painters will need more time to paint moldings, window frames, textured walls and so on. These extras will take more time, and therefore cost more. Leave them out, and your project might be cheaper.
Also, You may think that you can save money by buying paint yourself, but this is usually not so. Home painters can help keep costs low because they get bulk prices on paint.
How to Choose Paint and Painting Equipment
What paint should you choose for a house painting project? For exterior painting, the color should match the colors of your house that are difficult to change, such as the roof shingles. High quality exterior paint that has latex with an acrylic binder is best for weather resistance. For interior painting projects, you should try to find a balance between ease of care and look. Quality paints with shiny finishes might be easy to clean, but they also show imperfections and dirt easily. Matte or soft velvet finishes are often best for walls, and shiny paints for molding and doors.
Thing to check before choosing a painter
- Homeowners should also consider the customer service record of painting services.
- Will they clean up after the project?
- Do they guarantee their work?
