"I hired Josh Douglas with A Painter's Touch to paint our home several months ago. I am always pretty specific with any contractor I hire because I want to make sure I get what I want and get what I am paying for. Josh had no problem with my specifications and was always on time.The price we set prior to the job, was the price I paid, NO HIDDEN FEES! The job was completed on time. His painting was absolute perfection. I would definitely recommend Josh and A Painter's Touch to anyone and I appreciate his honesty and integrity!" .
Painting a house takes 4 to 5 days on average, including cleaning, preparation, and painting. Painting time depends on the home and crew size, weather, and prep work required. Smaller homes may take 1 to 2 days. Larger houses or homes needing repairs may take 7 to 10 days.
We’re currently flipping a house from the late 60s. We stripped popcorn ceilings ourselves in the entire house, re-textured every ceiling and wall, replaced all of the trim, and repainted every surface. We painted the ceilings with a roller extension- it was by far my least favorite part of renovations so far- so much easier if you do it before flooring is in though! I can’t wait to see more posts on the house! Such a neat project! Emily @ Life on Food February 25, 2015
Color is always the first consideration when painting a home. Most paint manufacturers offer samples, so you can make a more informed decision before you start painting. Because light within a room may vary from wall to wall and from day to night, try painting a large piece of poster board in the color or colors you are considering. Move the board from wall to wall and look at it for a minimum of 24 hours at a time in each space to make sure you like the color before committing.
Always make sure not to rub too hard or to use an abrasive sponge or cleanser, as this may dull the finish, particularly on flat paint.
