You’ll save time and money if you detect and remove lead paint before painting over it, so you may want to have a lead paint inspection for about $300 on average before hiring someone to paint your walls.

The best temperature range for exterior house painting is between 65 and 90 degrees. The trick is to allow your paint to cure correctly. Here in Pennsylvania and New Jersey the spring and fall months are the best months—though summer can work also. Below 50 degrees will be too cold, potentially causing the paint to freeze before it cures. If you go above 90 degrees you risk scorching the paint during the curing process. Either scenario will leave you with a visibly damaged finish.

Before you stand back and marvel at this huge DIY accomplishment, you’ll need to clean up the worksite. Remove painter’s tape, scrape any paint off of windows, and clean tools and brushes. Seal paint cans by cleaning the inner ring, placing the lid back on the paint can, and gently hammering around the lid’s perimeter with a rubber mallet.

I hired them to fix the wood rot and repaint the house. They were fast and efficient, making adjustments as needed, and even moved a little debris I had around the house (fallen fence pieces from wind) and trimmed back trees that were in the way. The paint job looks amazing as well, and the pricing was very reasonable. Next time I need work done, they are the first ones I'm calling. Thanks!
Some walls in your home need to be repainted more frequently than others due to daily wear and tear. For example, if you only eat in your formal dining room a couple times a year during the holidays, you probably won’t need to paint the walls as often as those found in your kitchen, hallways, or bathroom. Painting Tip! Drywall repair prior to painting over dings and scrapes is often necessary. Professional painters also suggest paint with an eggshell sheen as it is great for hallways with a lot of foot traffic.
If you're using more than one gallon of paint, mix the gallons together in a 5-gallon bucket and stir them together to ensure color uniformity.
4. Wear coveralls! Wear shoe protectors. Wear a head sock! Wear goggles! Especially when first starting out, and/or are spraying a ceiling, you will get paint everywhere. My glasses will never be the same.
You should always prime before you paint. It guarantees a great finish and allows you to use less paint.
I know that if I went with a cheaper company, I'd have gotten a much lower quality service where they got paint everywhere and missed spots. Go with this company and you won't regret it! They're worth the money.
After painting a square on the wall and observing it in different light you choose a color. However, you may discover that what looked great in a small section is too overwhelming once the walls are finished.
The average cost of hiring a painter for an 8-hour workday can range between $200 to $500. The cost does not include the materials and paints required. In fact, painters will often charge per square feet or per hour, rather than per day.
Color can be fun, so don’t be scared to add some to your home. Even if you only paint one accent wall in a bold hue.
Workers showed up on time and work was finished as promised. Very courteous. I would use Rubens painting in the future for other projects.
I really appreciate this information! Contractors in our area are in high demand and charging way more than your higher estimates. Looks like another DIY project for us. We Are going to replace failing T-11 siding with new hardiboard on three sides of a medium 2+ story home. Would it be possible to spray the paint (after all prep done)? We've painted a single level stucco home with great success and will hire the siding done. Thanks for your great videos; this is the second one and we're fans!
