Tips on freshening your home from our Geelong house paintersPosted on May 27, 2019 in General
When it comes to adding a fresh look to your home, then paint is one of the most cost-effective ways to make a real difference.
Whether the new paint work is internal or external, the appeal is instantaneous. And while it makes the space even better to live in, it can also add dollars to your house if you’re thinking of selling.
If you’re looking for tips from a quality house painter in Geelong, our professional crew at Geelong Prestige Painting is happy to help.
We know that surface preparation is the key to a good painting result and that tip should come with flashing lights, a marching band and a standing ovation. Every time. It’s that important. Get your preparation wrong and your paint job will let you down.
Did you know that paint and surface preparation can take up to double the time of the painting itself? Yes, that’s right. Double the time.
Preparation work includes cleaning the surface thoroughly, carrying out any repairs, filling any cracks and sanding. It must be done right if you want a superior finish. So don’t sell yourself, or your house, short.
It’s also worth making sure you’ve picked a colour you’re happy with. You can get small sample pots of the colours you are interested in to try on your walls. And remember that paint looks different at different times of the day, because of changes in light, especially when it comes to exteriors.
It’s also important to make sure you buy quality paint for your painting project, whether you are painting a feature wall to lift a room, a few select rooms inside your house or the complete exterior to enhance its kerb appeal.
Rather than handling work yourself, why not get a professional house painter to carry out the task for you. With Geelong Prestige Painting in your corner, you can rest assured you’ll get an excellent result completed to an efficient time line. There’s also peace of mind in knowing that we get just how important thorough preparation is to the end result.
