Expert Tips

Cheap isn’t cheerful

Painting your home is one job that everyone thinks is easy, but there are a few things you should take into consideration before embarking on such a project. For example, there’s a big difference between high quality and inferior paints. Cheaper paints look fine when going on the walls wet, but by the time the paint is dry, the difference in quality and coverage is very noticeable. Invest in high-quality paint and an experienced painter and your paint job will last much longer.



Professional painting

It might be tempting to have a go at painting yourself but the truth is, it’s really easy to do a not-so-good paint job. A professional painter will do thorough prep work and complete a high-quality job faster than you could, and with less mess.



Boost the value of your home

One of the most cost-effective ways to improve the look and value of your home is a fresh coat of paint. When people move into a new home they like to stamp their personality on it, so painting in neutral, modern colours will update your home, giving potential buyers the blank canvas they’re looking for.



Increase your street appeal

Whether you’re selling your home or simply want to give it a facelift, painting the front exterior can make a huge difference. Paint is an extremely powerful and cost-effective renovation tool. You can instantly modernise and refresh the exterior of a tired old property with a coat of paint in a neutral, traditional or contemporary colour scheme. It’s a simple way of increasing street appeal and making a great first impression.



Don’t wait to paint 

Any professional painter and decorator will tell you that the key to a long-lasting paint finish is in the preparation. This includes scraping away any loose paint, and filling and sanding any holes or defects. So, it’s best not to wait until paint starts to flake and peel before you call someone to repaint your home. The longer you leave it, the more preparation work will be required and the job will take much longer.
