Even when hiring a professional to take care of your painting work for your South Palm Beach home you can run into problems, most of which can be avoided. Some of these are your responsibility, such as the color choice you make. Others however, are up to the contractor you hire, like how to handle the prep work. The importance of knowing these possible mistakes is to avoid them or to make sure whoever you are paying to get the job done doesn’t make them.
The How-To of What Not to Do
So what exactly should you try not to let happen when it comes to painting your South Palm Beach home, inside or out?
Everyone thinks the main part of the job is the South Palm Beach painting when, in all actuality, the majority of the work is the preparation. Make sure whoever you are paying to do your painting invests the time and effort needed to take care of the prep work. Your surfaces should be inspected, cleaned, sanded, etc. When it comes to the outside of your home this should also mean addressing the need for repairs to things like rotten wood. Anyone who comes in and tried to just paint over the surface as is should be replaced.
Tone down your bold color choice. While this is ultimately your decision, whoever you work with should offer this same advice if you are considering a loud color. There is nothing wrong with opting for something more exciting than traditional but you could end up regretting overly bold choices. Take your bold choice down even just a few shades lighter and you are more likely to love it long term.
You would be surprised how much of the quality of the work comes down to the taping. Make sure whoever you choose pays careful attention to taping edges and even uses something like a putty knife to ensure that the placement is accurate. Once the job is complete they should not leave the tape up very long. The longer the tape stays, the more likely it will stick which means pulling the paint off with it once the tape is finally removed.
Making the Final Choice
Of course the biggest pitfall to avoid is hiring the wrong company to get the job done. Ultimately, the quality of the work and whether or not you are happy with the job comes down to who you employ.
