Things to Consider when Hiring House Painters in Manly and the Northern Beaches
Having the interior of your home painted is a quick and easy way to brighten and refresh the look that is relatively inexpensive. When hiring house painters in Manly and the Northern Beaches to paint the inside of your home there are a few things you should consider.
1. Prepare for the Job
When painting any surface, preparation is the key to ensure that the paint goes on smoothly and looks great. If the surface is prepared properly, the paint will look great for many years. However, if not prepared correctly, even the best-quality paint can peel, crack or chip. Make sure that you or a tradesman does any necessary repairs before the actual painting begins. Do not forget to clean any dirty walls, especially near the cooktop and sink as soap scum and greasy deposits can hinder the paint’s ability to stick.
2. Finding a Painter
When you hire a painter, make sure that the contract includes everything that will be done and all the products used. This should include all aspects of surface preparation, priming and the type of primer, painting, the brand of paint, and how many coats will be used.
3. Ask About Additional Costs
The painter’s original estimate may not include fees for things like moving heavy furniture. If you are unable to move it yourself, ask if there will be any additional fees for the paint crew to move it for you. In addition, painting crown mouldings, baseboards, and walls or ceilings that are taller than 8-feet may incur additional costs. Make sure you find out before work begins so that you do not get any nasty surprises.
4. Choose your Paint Colour
When picking out the colour of your paint, remember to consider the size of the room. Darker colours will make a room appear smaller while light colours help to open up a space. If necessary, purchase a small can of paint in the colour you are considering and paint a small portion of your wall. Then watch the colour throughout the day and in different lights to ensure you do not end up stuck with a colour that only looks good during the day. If you know you are going to sell the house in the future, choose neutral colours that prospective buyers will appreciate.
5. Decide on a Finish
If your walls are not perfect, think about using a flat paint but remember that it is harder to clean. A finish that is slightly glossy is good for walls and can be cleaned. In most cases, the higher the shine, the more durable the finish will be and the better it will withstand cleaning and washing.
