Nothing can improve the appearance of your home like a new, fresh, beautiful coat of paint.
However, whether you do the painting of your home yourself, or hire a contractor, there are many factors you need to take into consideration. The type, quality, and color of the paint you use is only the beginning. You also need to consider the type of material you are covering, the surface preparation, caulking, and weather stripping.
If you hire a contractor, how do you know he will do a good job? Will he finish on time? Is he insured?
This website has numerous resources available that cover each of these topics and more. feel free to browse.
And good luck on your upcoming home painting project!
