What to consider when you paint the outside of your home

Posted by Nolan Painting on July 1, 2015

Homeowners should consider painting their home’s exterior every 10 years. However, there are a lot of factors that can go into that number, factors that can significantly decrease the lasting effects of paint on your home exterior, and others which might give it additional life. Whether you’re looking to boost your curb appeal, or it’s been a decade since your last exterior paint job, the golden rule is to find a reputable painting company who has vast experience in exterior paint.

If you know it’s time for a fresh coat of paint you’ll want to consider these important factors when looking for a painter.

Ensure your painter is fully licensed and insured

There is something to be said about a company that carries insurance and the proper licensing for their business. It the age when businesses seem to pop up overnight, you’ll want to be sure the company you work with has the right protection in place before you get started. But that’s not all. It’s important to hire a painter or company who will warranty the work.

At Nolan Painting, we return to your home to inspect our work 2 years after the paint is applied. We meticulously check for any issues that require a redo or repair at no added cost.

Experience is a must

Experience says a lot about the way you service your clients. In the residential painting industry it is imperative to have experience in the proper treatment of a variety of surfaces. This is ideal when maintaining paint in harsh environments.

Nolan Painting prides itself on providing their employees with all the tools necessary to produce superior quality through a vast amount of experience. Ongoing training in the latest methods and trends is always taking place in our offices.

Preparation speaks volumes

We all want our home to be the talk of the neighborhood. When it comes time to paint, adding a fresh coat or a new color can be just what you need to feel great about your property. One of the most important details when choosing a painting company is how they prepare your home for a new coat of paint. The art of exterior home preparation has a direct result on how well the paint takes to your exterior and how long it will last. Remember, cheap is not always better in this instance.

Our very own Jon Meyer states, “I’ve seen hundreds of jobs where painters have just come out, scraped off the loose paint and painted over again. These “quick/cheap” jobs start to show signs of wear as early as a year out.” At Nolan Painting, our painting team thoroughly inspects, preps, and seals every surface of the property before paint is applied. Only after this process is just the right amount of paint applied to the exterior of your home. This tried and tested method results in years of maintenance-free enjoyment.
