Interior and Exterior Painting

The appearance of your home speaks volumes about you. It reflects who you are. Therefore, you want your home to look its best, whether you are planning a long-term stay or want to sell it. A fresh paint job could be all you need to give your home a new look by changing its mood and design. You can choose to go for muted colors or bold colors. Either way, painting your home is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform its interior and exterior décor. If you are like many homeowners, you probably think that painting is a simple DIY job. However, painting requires experience, time, creativity, techniques, and tools. If you need professional interior or exterior painting services, the Orange County Home Remodeling contractors can help.

Exterior Painting Services

Whether you want to change the color theme of your home or just freshen up its appearance, painting the exterior of your house will instantly give it a brand-new look. If you plan to sell your home, painting is one of the fastest and most effective ways to raise its value. However, an exterior painting project is a complicated task that is best left to the experts. You should not try to paint your home if you are not qualified and experienced, because you could run into some issues.

When planning an exterior paint job, one of the most important steps is choosing the paint color. You should consider several factors when selecting the color to paint the exterior of your house:

  • Landscape — The ideal paint color will depend on your environment or the landscape. For example, you may want your home to blend into the surrounding trees. In this case, you should go for a darker color. On the other hand, if your house lies in a lot of shade, you should consider going for a lighter color. You should take time to decide whether you want your home's exterior to complement or contrast the environment.
  • Architecture — Your home's architecture will also determine the ideal paint color. Perhaps you have a traditional colonial house or a Victorian style. These are different architectural styles with varying peaks and accents. Irrespective of the architectural designs of your home, your choice of colors can help to draw attention to the unique architectural details.
  • The existing colors — You must also consider the existing colors when choosing the external paint color. For example, what is the color of your roof, driveway, mulch, and gravel? In addition, you must determine how you want your home's exterior colors to accentuate the other features of your home.

Exterior House Painting Process

There is so much that goes into painting your house. Painting is not a quick fix that you can perform over the weekend. It is wise to have a professional handle your painting needs. Here's what to expect with an exterior paint job:

  • Wash — Your house's exterior must be washed before the paint. This can be done using a pressure washer. It is best to start from the top of the house so that all the grime and dirt go down the trim and the siding.
  • Scrape — This step involves scraping off the loose paint from your house siding. We will have drop cloths to ensure the paint chips do not land on the grass.
  • Sanding — Sanding is a crucial step that involves smoothing the exterior surface of your home to create the proper surface for the paint to adhere to.
  • Patch — There could be some parts of the house that need repair. We will patch up these areas before we prime the exterior.
  • Prime — Next, we will prime the surface. Always keep in mind the fact that every prime is unique. Paint manufacturers usually indicate how many coats are needed.
  • Caulk — This step involves sealing all the corners and the cracks to ensure no moisture seeps through.
  • Paint — This is the final step. It involves painting the house in your desired color.

Interior Painting Services

Here is a brief overview of what our interior painting services look like:

  • Selecting the paint color — With the seemingly endless color options and all the different shades available, choosing your interior paint color can be more challenging than you expect. Do not worry, even if you cannot select the preferred color. Our experts will help you select a color that matches your home's interior features.
  • Covering the area — We do not want paint or dust getting where it should not be. We will therefore lay plastic and drop cloths over the furniture and the floor in the space we are painting.
  • Preparing the walls — A smooth wall enhances better paint adhesion. Therefore, we will first prepare the walls before commencing the paint job.
  • Applying new paint — We will apply your preferred paint at this point. The time it takes to apply new paint will depend on the type of paint and the size of the surface being painted. Our professional painters will complete the job promptly and efficiently.
  • Cleaning up — We want to leave your house sparkling and looking new. Therefore, our painters always clean up after the paint job.

Different Interior Spaces Call For Different Painting Styles

Painting the walls is relatively easy and straightforward when you only need a simple coat. However, some surfaces call for more nuance than you expect. These surfaces include doors, wainscotting, crown molding, trim, and cabinets. In addition, depending on the rooms you are painting, you must use different finishes that suit these spaces.

  • Bathroom painting — The bathroom is one of the most essential spaces in a home, yet homeowners tend to forget it when painting and decorating. However, your bathroom also needs your tender love and care. For example, when selling a home, most buyers are very keen on the condition of the bathroom. Choosing the right color for your bathroom will enhance its image.
  • Bedroom painting — Interior painting does not get more personal than painting the bedroom. Your bedroom is where you spend 1/3 of your life. Therefore, you should give it the attention and paint it deserves.
  • Living room painting — The living room requires special attention to make it more welcoming since this is where you mainly host guests. Our experts will ensure the living room paint goes well with the rest of the décor.
  • Kitchen painting — Applying a fresh coat of paint could make a significant difference in your kitchen. Whether freshening up the kitchen walls or painting your cabinets, painting is an affordable way of renovating your kitchen.
  • Entryway painting — Everyone who visits your home comes in through the entryway. You can make the best first impression by choosing the right color for your entryway.
  • Hallway painting — If you think about it, you probably use the hallway more than any other part of your house. You should therefore upgrade your highway with durable paint that can handle the traffic.

Choosing Between DIY And Professional House Painting

When planning an interior or exterior house painting project, you will probably be torn between handling the task yourself or hiring an expert. You should ask yourself these crucial questions:

  • Do I have all the necessary tools and equipment to complete the paint job?
  • Will I have ample time to complete the task and do a great job?
  • Do I have the required expertise and experience?
  • Do I want to take the risk?

You should only consider DIY exterior house painting if you answer yes to all the above questions.

The Benefits Of Using Professionals For Your Interior And Exterior Painting

If you want to change the appearance of your working or living space, there is no better way to do it than by giving it a new look with fresh paint. When painting your home, you must consider many factors, but working with a professional painter is the most important. Going for DIY painting or hiring rogue painters who charge meager prices can be tempting. While working with cheap painters can save you a little money, there is no guarantee that you will be happy with the outcome. Furthermore, you could have a sloppy paint job, forcing you to spend twice as much on the same paint job.

Now let us look into the option of working with professional painters. Hiring a professional painter can cost more than hiring an unskilled painter. However, it will give your home or business the exact look you want and even exceed your expectations. Here are some of the benefits of working with professional painters.

Product Knowledge

Professional painters know everything about painting products. In addition, painters only use genuine and branded products that will not compromise the quality or safety of your property. They know which products should be used in the kitchen, living area, or bathroom. Experts will know the best finishing product to use if there is an issue with the wall's surface.

Peace Of Mind

When your painting job is in the hands of a professional painter, you will not have to worry about the project. Experts always know what to do to achieve the desired results. Therefore, you can focus on your normal activities instead of worrying about the paint job.

Value For Money

If you invest in something, you expect returns on your investment. The same principle applies when you invest in hiring expert painters. It is a worthwhile investment that you make in your home or business. You are assured of satisfactory results in terms of a quality finish.

Well-equipped With The Right Tools

A professional paint job requires so many tools and specialized equipment. For example, some paint jobs require a spray machine, a vacuum machine, and other costly equipment. However, a professional painter has access to all the necessary tools and equipment to handle all types of projects. Therefore, you will not need to source new equipment.

A Quality Finish Every Time

Professional painters are known for delivering a quality finish every time. An expert painter knows all that goes into a superior finish and can guarantee you the impeccable and shining walls you have always desired. That is what sets professional painters apart from unskilled ones.

We Only Use Eco-friendly Paint

We understand the importance of using quality paint. For this reason, we only use eco-friendly paint to avoid pungent odors and other inconveniences. Even during the painting process, you will barely notice that a paint job is ongoing. Since we only use environmentally friendly products, our paints will not cause environmental degradation. Furthermore, all our paints are made to last, meaning they will serve you well.

Tired Of Looking At Faded And Dull Surfaces?

A fresh coat of paint can brighten any room and make the exterior space look newer. Therefore, if you are tired of looking at dull and faded surfaces, you should consider hiring a painting contractor. An expert can get the job done quickly and clean up afterward. If you seek to hire a reliable painting contractor, the following tips will come in handy:

  • Have a plan — Are you doing interior or exterior painting? How many rooms do you want to be painted? At what time of the year should the paint job be completed? How will the paint job impact your home/work schedule?
  • Research different painting contractors — You should not settle for the first painting contractor that you come across. Take time to research other contractors to choose the right one.
  • Seek referrals — Seek referrals from local community boards, friends, neighbors, and family members who have hired painting contractors before.
  • Interview painting contractors — In addition to the referral and online research, you should conduct phone interviews.
  • Vet your prospects — After narrowing your choices, you can reach out to references and ask questions like, was the paint job completed on time? Were you happy with the results? Did the project exceed the set budget? Would you hire the contractor again?
  • Acquire estimates in writing — Acquire written estimates from several companies, compare them, and choose the best deal.
