We’re stepping out of February into March, and spring is undeniably right around the corner.
Are you looking forward to it?
We sure are. Not only is it a beautiful season, but it’s a busy time of year for us in the professional painting industry. A new season calls for new styles, fresh paint, and the fun of facilitating home transformations here in the Portland area.
As you plan your own local exterior painting project, we want to offer a few tips to help you make sure you’re getting the very best paint job possible for your home.
How Do You Know If You’ve Found a High-end Painter?
In an article we wrote a while back, we explored exactly what a high-end painter is and offers. If you missed it, you can check it out here.
Here’s a quick recap:
- A focus on surface preparation
- Using the best products for your surface and needs
- Expert application
- Local accountability
How can you discover whether or not your exterior painter meets the criteria above? We suggest exploring their website, reading summaries of past projects, and talking candidly with them. Here at Sundeleaf Painting, we are an open book, sharing project blogs, photos on Houzz.com, and proudly discussing our heritage of service here in the Portland area.
Why Is It Worth Hiring a High-Quality Exterior Painting Company?
It’s easy to find a cheap painter.
And, it’s also easy to love the number on their estimate (or guess-timate?), and choose them right away. What difference does it really make, right?
Improper surface preparation, poor product selection, and hasty applications might look good for a short while, but they just don’t last. Time and again we have been called in to fix mistakes, sometimes costly mistakes, left in the wake of a “cheap” painter, and it always ends up costing the homeowner more than if they had hired a reputable company to begin with.
In short, you really do get what you pay for.
So, do yourself, your home, and your maintenance budget a favor this spring, and hire a painting company company that you really can trust, and one who provides a clear estimate and explanation of services.
