Why It Pays To Hire a Painting Exterior ExpertLeola Beattie
So, you’ve decided to paint the exterior of your home. Maybe your first instinct is to save money and do it yourself. However, unless you’ve done it before, you should do some research and weigh up the advantages of hiring a painting exterior expert. Asnu Group of Trades will take the stress and hassle out of painting the exterior of your home. We have a large team of experienced painting experts who work together to get the job done professionally and efficiently!
Factors That Affect the Cost of Painting Exteriors
Firstly, the type of house will influence the scope of work needed. Obviously, a bigger house will take longer. But there are other factors such as roof height and the number of stories. For example, you may need to hire scaffolding to reach high or awkward places which is an added cost to consider.
The amount of prep work also varies depending on size and surface. For example, rendered brick is much easier than weatherboard. Homes that are close to busy roads can also be harder to clean. This is because they would have accumulated more dust and dirt.
Older homes may require sanding if the paint is worn or peeling. This is to ensure the new paint goes on smoothly. Painting older style homes such as Victorian can be more difficult for other reasons too. They generally require more colours than a modern home. And the existing color scheme may affect the number of coats you will need for full coverage. Plus, they tend to have more intricate and decorative features.
What kind of features does your exterior have? For instance, decorative fascia will take longer to paint. And you may prefer to highlight with different colours. How many windows? Will you paint trims in a different colour? All these factors contribute to the overall monetary and time cost.
Do you have the tools required? Sometimes a ladder is enough to get the job done. But in many cases, scaffolding is needed to reach high areas safely. What about brushes, rollers, preparation solution, paint, and finishes?
Asnu’s professional exterior painters are able to take care of all types of scenarios. They can also advise on paint colour, type, and brand selection. Plus advise on the best options to suit your style and environment.
How Painting Exterior Differs from Painting Interiors
Painting exteriors is different from painting interiors in various ways. Firstly, preparation for painting exteriors is more difficult than interiors. Exteriors are exposed to the elements which can lead to mould, algae, and years of built-up dirt and grime. These can be difficult and time-consuming to remove. But if not done properly the finished job will not look as good and it won’t last as long.
The elevation of the block or the surrounding vegetation and structures can make painting exteriors awkward and dangerous. Therefore, as mentioned before scaffolding is advised.
Then you have the weather to do deal with whilst painting. Too hot and the paint dries too quickly, too wet and you can’t paint. And the weather does not always play nice on your days off.
So, it is well worth thinking about the long-term monetary value of hiring a specialist exterior painter like Asnu. We have the tools and knowledge to get the job done properly and efficiently. We will save you time and stress and ensure the final result is long-lasting and looks amazing!
