High-Quality House Painting in the Bay Area: What Should You Look For? !
There’s a tremendous difference between a mediocre paint job and a high-quality paint job for your home. And trust us, you don’t want a mediocre finish. The price tag might be initially attractive, and the paint itself might even look good, but time will definitely make the differences apparent.
We’ve outlined a few points to look for below, and you really could turn any of these into questions/talking points to share with your prospective painting company. Their answers will help you know what kind of results, value, and service experience you can expect.
What Goes Into Quality House Painting?
Here’s a closer look:
- Fully credentialed, including being licensed and insured
- Proven paint products (cheaper is NOT better)
- In-house team of painters
- Local experience and longevity
- Clear, detailed estimate
- Extensive surface preparation
Let’s camp on that last point a little longer.
Surface preparation dictates 80% of an exterior painting project’s success - not many Bay Area homeowners realize this. Deep cleaning, repairs, sanding, priming… These early steps create a clean, solid foundation for your paint to adhere to, and that translates to a longer-lasting (and more attractive!) paint finish.
An Exceptional House Painting Experience
You don’t just deserve great craftsmanship; you also deserve a great service experience.
We encourage you to look at reviews before hiring a painter. And don’t just look for the good ones! There will inevitably be lower ratings here and there, but the way that the painting company responded to those reviews will tell you a lot.
