I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying, “Time is money.” If this is true in your case then hiring a cheap house painter will be worth it. You can find these contractors by firing up Google and using their seemingly endless supply of tradesmen at your fingertips or go to any nearby hardware store for someday laborers who are willing to do paint jobs on the side too! Hiring either one of these options will save you time but not much money so if that’s important then going with other cheaper options may make more sense for now.
Some factors that affect the cost of painting your exterior are surface condition, project complexity, and paint type. A professional painter will consider all these things to give you a precise estimate of our prices for an exterior painting job.
Along with getting your exterior painting up to date, it might also be time to get the land around it clean and prepared. Painters will power wash any dirt off of your property as well as fix any holes in trim or cracks on walls before they apply a primer for your new color choice.
If you have a house with prominent features this can drive up the price of your exterior home painting. You may be wondering, “do I need to hire an expensive painter?” but many amateur painting companies or contractors will avoid an exterior paint job for a sophisticated residence because they’re afraid of messing up the details of your property.
If you’re looking to save money on your exterior painting budget then here are some tips.
Choose High-Quality Paint
If you want your home to be a beautiful, fresh-looking space for as long as possible, then it’s time to invest in quality paint. Not only will the high-quality stuff require fewer coats before it covers all surfaces of your walls and trim – which means that you can use fewer cans overall! It also lasts longer than bargain bin paints because its ingredients are more durable so they don’t peel or chip away over time as cheaper brands do. Quality paint is easy on the eye too: colors stay bright without fading over years of touch-ups (which saves money). The best part about investing in painting is that many people find themselves enjoying their homes even more after getting things painted with this kind of attention to detail.
Don’t Use Too Many Colors
Using a different color for the trim work is understandable, but it’s best to avoid going wild with too many colors. One primary and one secondary can be gorgeous so there’s no need to use them all to have a lovely paint job on your home. The fewer colors you use, the more you’ll save- not only does this cut down costs of materials (and labor), when painters switch from one project/paint type they will get done quicker!
