Choosing The Right Color For My Walls

After we moved into our first home, we realized that the color that was on the walls had to go. Although we had initially thought that it was a beige color, the more we looked at it, the more we realized that it had heavy pink undertones. We decided to paint over the color, but we weren't sure how to get started. However, after working with a painter, we had a better idea of what would look nice. He was kind enough to paint a few large patches of color on the walls of our home, and it made a huge difference. This blog is all about working with a professional painter and choosing the right color for your home.

Nothing gives your home a fresh look than painting the interior walls. This can be a demanding job, which means you may need help from a professional. Choosing one of these painters can be a smooth process thanks to these tips. 

1. Assess Credentials  

Since you're leaving your home in the hands of a stranger, you want the painter to have the right credentials. They help show that the painter is committed to their craft, but more importantly, has the necessary skills to complete the paint job safely and effectively.

To find out what credentials a painter has, try looking up their business website. It should state somewhere what training they've received and also highlight what painting organizations they are apart of. Once these credentials are verified, you can feel better about working with this type of specialist. 

2. Look for Customer Satisfaction Guarantees 

A lot of things can go wrong with these painting jobs. For example, even experienced painters may leave behind chips or paint blotching. For this reason, you need to protect yourself and your home by hiring a painter that offers a customer satisfaction guarantee.

So, if you're not happy with the end results, any problems left over will be fixed until you're completely satisfied. It's not enough to get this guarantee with a verbal agreement, though. You need it in writing. Look over your contract with the painter and make sure this guarantee is stated before any work is done to your home.

3. Check Out Past Work 

Sometimes the only true way of getting a feel for how a painter works is to check out their past work. There are many ways you can go about this. If you don't have a lot of time on your hands, you can look through their online portfolio. Make sure you pay attention to the types of properties worked on, the quality of paint used, and before and after photos. 

If you do have time to spare, consider visiting the painter's previous work sites in person. This way, you can see first-hand how skilled and experienced a painter is and thus make a more informed decision.

Painting interior walls aren't as easy as it seems. It involves a lot of preparation and oversight, which is why you should consider hiring a professional painter. Just make sure they are competent, reliable, and offer the right services to ensure these paint jobs are completed without any major complications.
