House painters add to the beauty of your house. They come along with their paints, brushes, and rollers to transform your home’s exterior and interior. You call them whether you need to paint your entire house or just spice up your living room – painters got you all covered up.

Why Is Painting Important?
 A fresh coat of paint gives a boost to the resale pricing of your house
 It gives a more eye-pleasing look/view to your house
 It is a simple way to refresh the entire look of your house
 It also helps conceal the damage done on the inside or outside surfaces
 It prevents humidity from the walls, which stop mildew and mold growth

The main reason for painting your house is not only to beautify it, but also to secure the building from damages done by the insects, environment, rain, water flood, and so on.

House Painting Process
House painting is something we keep putting off for over the weekend, but it isn't as easy and simple as it sounds. When each and every tool and step counts, painting can get overwhelming. Let's look at a quick outline of what you need to know before your new paint job:

 What paint color to choose?
Choosing the perfect color according to your house can be too much to handle when you've got your hands full of options and more than fifty shades of grey. Some shades may seem similar, but they can create a whole lot of different looks when painted on the wall. For that, your painting companies have their personalized color palettes of some of the most common and popular colors to help you select your favorite color.

• Cover the area:
Before starting to paint, the first step painters take is covering up your furniture and floor with plastic or cloth. No one wants to mess up the rest of their home by getting paint everywhere.

• Prep the walls:
Prepping the walls before painting results in better paint adhesion and a smoother surface when painted.

• Apply new paint:
The next step is to apply the color you selected, but the timing of this step is entirely dependent upon the surface and the paint. However, professionals home painters will get things done as soon as possible and efficiently.

• Clean-up:
After the painting job is done, the painter's job doesn't end there. Your house’s painters will then start cleaning up the mess after they're done painting, leaving the house spotless.

Four Reasons Why You Should Hire A Professional Painter
1. The quality of the DIY painting will not compare to the effortless work of a professional painter.
2. The professionals are called pros for a reason. They have all the right tools for the job plus are efficient. You might take days to finish a single room when they can do that in 24 hours.
3. They prep the walls before painting and do any fixes required before painting to give a smooth, quality finish.
4. No one knows colors better than they do. Sometimes you won't be able to tell the difference between two colors – except by their names.

What Is The Cost Of Hiring A Professional Painter?
The average cost to hire a painter is $21 to $ 55 per hour, $210 to $400 per day, or $1 to $5 per square foot. You must know that professional painters may charge $300 to $700 to paint a 10x12 room. Also, prices depend on the job size, the season, and the painter's experience level. The average cost to paint the interior of a house falls between $ 2 to $3.5 per square foot. If you are doing the ceiling, walls, and trim, the costs fall between $3.5 to $4. If there is damage in the wall that needs to be repaired before painting can be completed, you will pay for any extra charges.

Five Significant Things That You Must Know Before Hiring A Painter:

• Reviews
When you start your first search, the very first thing you should research is their online reviews. Real customer reviews are invaluable for figuring out the quality of service that you may receive from a business. You should take into account any pictures and most reviews ads in the decision process.

It is essential that the company should be trustworthy. The best places for collecting reviews are social media sites likeFacebook, Google reviews, and other review websites. You should also know what other people think about what it is like to work with them. If possible, you can call a few of their last clients, so they can describe what it's like to work with a particular paint company. Ask for some past work samples to decide if their style matches the look that you want.

• Is satisfaction guaranteed or not?
Any professional painter knows that a client’s satisfaction is more important than the actual painting. For example, pro painters give a five year guarantee on residential work and provide a 1-year guarantee for commercial work. A trustworthy business will always have a goal to please their clients and deliver customer satisfaction,, and this guarantee shows that they are providing quality service.

Professional painters will always treat their customers as the first priority. Once you have communicated your expectations to the contractor, it will help you to achieve goals.

• Thoroughly review the contract
When hiring a painter, make sure to read all agreements carefully. It is important to understand what a company says they will do as a part of the project, so there are no future surprises for you. Also, make sure the painting company has listed their level of surface preparation within the implementation of the project, because that will have a direct impact on how long the paint will last.

You must have a detailed estimate of material cost, breakdown of labor, and how much paint is needed to complete the house. This is also an essential and high time to discuss any extra or additional work, such as repairing a drywall hole or replacing siding boards. But remember: the actual cost could be higher or lower depending on the paint you use; the warranty is involved.

• Estimated prices
A dependable and trustworthy company will always offer a price estimate before painting has begun. It’s important to know what to expect in terms of pricing. You should do your research and review other competitors in the painting industry to check out all the price packages offered by different companies.

• Time-saving
One of the main things you must consider before hiring a painter is knowing if they are time-efficient or not. If they seem like they aren’t timely on their paint jobs, avoid giving them a project. A professional will know about how to paint clean edges and in hard to reach different places. They must know when a wall needs an extra coat of paint. You must decide on a deadline before giving them a contract. Otherwise, a rushed job can end in a disappointing experience.

How Much Insurance Coverage Do They Have?
Your painter contractor must have workmen's compensation to protect their workers. Many contractors will try not to get insurance because it's costly. Contractors must also have a copy of their contact details and business liability to protect your home in case of any damage. While browsing potential contractors, make sure they have at least a million-dollar limit in insurance coverage.

What Are The Interior House Painting Colors?
One of the hardest parts of a painter's job is to assist homeowners with color choices. A good contractor will be happy to sit with you in a consulting session to discuss which colors will work best for your home. There is a variety of colors to choose from and combinations to consider, such as monochromatic colors, analogous colors, and complementary colors.

Interviewing Questions Must Ask Before Hiring A Painter:
• Do you perform the job yourself or hire a team?
• How long have you been a painting contractor?
• Are you licensed and insured?
• Do you have guarantees for your work?
• Can you provide the contact information of your previous clients as references?

Do painters use tape?
Yes, painters do use tape to provide us with the clean and tidy edges without spilling the paint elsewhere. It also saves time since they do not have to be as careful, as they have a boundary set between the surfaces to paint and the areas they have to avoid. Although they have been painting for years and have plenty of experience, they still need a tape to help them out.

When should you repaint your house?
Repainting your house depends upon which areas of your house you use frequently. For example, if you spend most of your time in your living room rather than your bedroom, your living room walls are most likely to be damaged more than your bedroom walls. Apart from this, you will usually need to paint the interior of your house every 5-7 years.

Do I have to provide the painting tools, or will my painting professionals bring them?
Your only job is to provide them the color you want to paint your house. If anything, you may have to buy paint and primer while all other necessary tools (tape, rollers, brushes, plastic coverings) will be with your professional painter. If you have made any prior preparations, do inform your painter beforehand.
