If you are counting down the days until All American Painting Plus arrives to paint your home, you’ve got a beautiful house to look forward to. In the meantime, there is a little bit of preparation you can do to make sure the project goes smoothly. All American Painting Plus painting contractors could do this stuff for you, but that just means more time and money being spent on your project. If you can tick off these boxes on your preparations check list, we will be able to finish your interior paint project on – or even under – budget.
- Move Stuff – Everything that is currently on your walls will have to be moved before painting can commence. If you want to cut an hour or two off of your bill, go ahead and remove paintings, decorations, and small furniture from the room. All American Painting Plus will move and cover all the of the large furnishings, and that doesn’t take much time at all. We always appreciate it when a homeowner does this. Not only does it make the day a little easier for us, but it saves money for the owner!
- Be Specific. There are lots of little details that homeowners sometimes overlook or forget to mention during a cost estimate. You might have a dark room that you want to be painted a lighter color. In this case, the contractor will have to include the cost of extra primer to achieve the color you want. Another example would be if you have windows which are painted closed. Your contractors can fix these without too much difficulty, but it’s much easier if they know in advance that this is within the scope of the work you require.
- Pets. If you have pets, make sure to keep them away from the painters while they are in your house. Pets can get in the way, whether they’re friendly or suspicious, and freshly shedded hair has an annoying way of getting dried onto newly painted surfaces.
- Create Your Own Paint Samples. Small paper paint color samples from your local hardware store are likely not big enough to give you an accurate sense of how paint will look on your wall. Make your own color samples out of large white cardstock and use this to decide what color you want. Don’t be disappointed by a color that doesn’t look the way you imagined.
