An average-size house will take an average of three to four days to paint. In this case, we'll define “average” as a home with one to two stories and four or fewer bedrooms. A large house, such as a three-story or five-plus-bedroom home, will take five to six days.
While it is possible to save money by buying lower-quality paints, we always recommend that our customers purchase high-quality paints that will last for many years. Both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore offer high-quality materials, and each of these companies stands behind its product.
Painting is not the hardest thing in the world to do. Almost anyone can paint a wall but there are things that you may want to ask yourself before you decide: Do I really want to sacrifice all the extra time I do have to paint? Do I have all the proper equipment which would include ladders, brushes, rollers, drop sheets, etc.? Can I paint very well? Hello Painting can help you with every step in painting. From choosing a color to applying it on the wall, we are the definition of professional. We guarantee quality work and client satisfaction.
Generally, Bellevue area exterior paints last about five years. But other factors like sun exposure or high humidity can shorten that time. Even if you feel that the paint still looks good, it may be a good idea to give us a call for a professional analysis to catch any small problems before they become bigger.
When you have any work performed on your most valuable asset (your home), you want to make sure you have a professional working on it. Here are a couple of questions to ask: Are you licensed and insured and can I see proof? Do you offer a written guarantee on your work? Can you provide me with any references of past work you have done? Is there a detailed description of the work I would like done? When do you plan on starting and finishing?
It is possible to paint over wallpaper but highly inadvisable. Once painted over it makes the wallpaper that much more difficult to remove when the paper begins to peel. Wallpaper is difficult to remove yourself, but with a trained painting professional, the job looks much easier. We use an industrial strength steamer to remove the paper, and after the paper is gone, skim coating and hole patching is often required. Of course sanding and priming prior to painting over the removal area is necessary too. This can all be done very efficiently, since our crews are accustomed to performing this type of work.
HELLO Painting is a family owned, operated business serving the Greater Bellevue area.
