Hiring Painters

Professional painting is more pricey than carrying it out yourself, but it's a good way to save you the aggravation, sore muscles and to have the task done right. To hire a top-quality Austin painter you must:

Determine the areas in your home you want painted.

What prep work do you want to do before painting? As an example does trim must be replaced. Think about the carpets. Do any holes must be patched? Think about texture on the walls or popcorn on the ceiling.

Decide what colors you wish to go with. All paint stores have paint charts and swatches that you need to use to take to your house and examine in your lighting. Don't expect the colour to look the same on your walls because it does in the paint store. After you make a preliminary decision, purchase the little sample colors and actually put some paint on the walls (or have your painter do this) before committing to the colors. A small swatch can look completely different when compared to a larger painted area.

Contact several painters and get pricing estimates.

Have the painter inspect the site and get a published quote. Ensure that all of the contractors are bidding on the same terms. Apples to apples. Anyone that produces a telephone quote is probably going to possess surprises for you in the end. You merely can't see all the task required over the phone.

Request references and check them. Was the prior customers happy with the job, did the task complete promptly and on budget? Where there any surprises.

Get and execute a contract. The contract should contain: work to be done, total cost, payment schedule, timeline, etc...

Remove all furniture and other movable items prior to the painter is scheduled to begin. Anything not removed must certanly be put into the middle of the space and covered with drop cloths.
