Pro Tips from Zoe's ProEdge Painting

When it comes to painting your home, you may be unsure about the best way to proceed. Here are a few helpful painting tips for homeowners.

4 Things to Look for When Choosing a Painting Contractor:

  1. Look for a contractor with a reputation for excellence. They should have excellent reviews, offer references upon request and have certifications that prove they are a painter you can trust.
  2. A decent painting contractor should offer 100 percent customer satisfaction, as well. Zoe’s ProEdge Painting encourages potential customers to look at our reviews and testimonials and examples of our prior work, so they can hire us with confidence.
  3. We also recommend to always ask if the painting company uses their own employees for the job which is preferred versus if they use subcontractors.
  4. Before hiring a painting contractor make sure they have full insurance including workman’s compensation, can provide a written warranty and if their employees are background checked.

Selecting a Color

One of the toughest decisions you will make when deciding to paint your home is which colors to use. Colors can say a lot about a room. Reds inspire passion, oranges and yellows are warm, blues and greens are cool and relaxing. Certain rooms may call for more vibrant, intense shades, while others may work best with more muted colors. The décor of the room and the room’s purpose will often determine the best color scheme. Do some color research on your own and if you can’t decide, then let us provide you with a free color consultation with any booked job to help finalize your decisions.

Knowing When It Is Time to Repair

A paint job can cover up some minor imperfections, but certain issues require attention before you paint. A great paint job will look much better on surfaces that are not worn down, rotted or cracked. Prep work is the hardest and most important part of any paint job. Fortunately, Zoe’s ProEdge Painting has the skilled personnel to handle of all your light construction and repair/prepping needs before painting.
