What Makes a Good Exterior Paint Job?
Quality Materials: When painting, the price of tools and paint translates pretty directly to the quality of product. A professional painter should clearly explain the type of paint and method of application in the contract so you know what to expect. Many homeowners think that because a name-brand paint is called out that they are getting a top quality paint. Every paint brand has an array of products that vary in quality level, so make sure it’s clear what you should be receiving.
Professional Prep: Your painter should be knowledgeable about the exterior surfaces of your home, and able to handle small repairs properly or refer you to the right professional if the job requires more work.
