Austin Painting Service Companies
There are many types of home painting. Indoor, outdoor, walls, ceilings, floors, garages, and more. The chances are if you are reading this article you have held a paintbrush painting someone’s home, office, or apartment.
If you have had a new home built you have faced the many choices that must be made to decide the main colors, accents, and offsets of both the inside and the outside of your new home. The chances are you may have had a designer to help you pick out the colors and a professional contractor to apply the paint.
As an existing homeowner, there will come a time when you are going to want to repaint a portion of your house. While it is not quite as easy as just getting a brush and bucket of paint and going for it there are many painting projects that you can accomplish as a do it yourself painter.
Interior walls are the easiest project for the first-timer. Painting a wall with an accent color is the best place to start. If you can pick a wall that is easy to access it will make things easier. Make sure to remove all outlet covers, paintings, and cover any trim showing and put something down over the floor.
Paint your wall carefully making sure to spread the paint evenly across the wall’s surface. If you apply too much paint it will run down in drips. If you don’t put enough paint on you will see the old color coming through the new paint job. Less is better than more however as you can always put on another application of paint called a coat. Some walls may require multiple coats depending on the color you are applying and the color of the wall to be painted over.
If you are looking to have a whole room or floor of your dwelling painted, consider hiring a professional. While it seems you may save some cash doing the painting yourself, by the time you include time for prep work, painting, and clean up, you will not be saving much if any over hiring someone who is an expert.
Painting exteriors of homes is definitely best left up to the professionals. Even if your home is only one story high it is still a complicated task to undertake. Professional painters have the ladders, spray guns, and taping equipment to get the job done quickly and efficiently. Most guarantee the quality of their work and the color of the paint after it has dried.
It is possible to save considerable money on the preparation work and many painters will work with you allowing you to do your own prep work. As is the same working with any contractor, make sure you receive at least two or three bids from contractors you call and gauge what the project will cost, then float a trial balloon about how to save money by helping do some of the prep work yourself.
Contractors Offering House Painting Services
When it comes to painting the interior of a house, many homeowners rely upon the expertise of a painting contractor. Some homeowners decide to do the painting in their homes to save money, but there are a number of reasons why it might make sense to hire a painter instead. If you have a large house that requires a lot of painting, the work might be too much for one person with a roller. You might also want professionals to handle the exterior of your home and rooms with special challenges like cathedral ceilings. If your home was built prior to 1980, it is a good idea to have paint removed by professionals in case it contains asbestos. In addition, if you hire a professional, you’ll have more choices when it comes to the finish since an experienced painter can make your walls look like suede, leather, and more using different techniques.

I’m a house flipper in the Austin area, and I go through a lot of painters. I can honestly say that Efren and his team have been my best experience to date; He showed up when I was in a bind, did great work, finished ahead of time, and never asked me to pay until the work was done and inspected. I will not call any other painter again. – Scott S

Q. What should I look for when hiring a painting contractor?
There are several key things to look for when choosing a painting contractor. Always check to see if they are licensed, experienced and capable of completing work to your satisfaction. Look for reputable companies in your local area that have references and photos of prior work.
Q. There is a wide variation in the painting quotes/bids I have received, why?
The cost of a painting job is determined by the level of preparation, attention to detail and quality desired. The old adage is true, “you get what you pay for”. Accepting a low-bid or negotiating a lower rate may lower the price but if the painter cuts corners to get the job done it will end up costing you more in the long run. Give each painter an identical brief and ask them to itemize the expenses so that you can compare how the money is being spent. You don’t have to accept the highest bid but never select a painter solely on price either. You need to feel confident and informed about what you are getting for the money you are being asked to pay.
Q. How long should the paint job last?
A good quality paint job should last a long time. Interior and exterior paints will have different lifespans depending on exposure to the elements and the type of surface to be painted. As a general rule, most exterior paints will last on average 7 – 10 years. The minimum durability is 2 – 3 years for exterior paints, and 3 years for interior finishes. The keys to good paint performance are proper surface preparation, high-quality materials, and quality application.
Q. What can I do if not happy?
First, you should discuss any issues with your paint contractor and ask that they are fixed. Austin Painting offers a technical inspection service. We will make a detailed inspection and point out any important issues. You may use this report to resolve the dispute, either in face-to-face discussions with your painter or as evidence at a legal hearing.
Q. What do I have to do in order to get ready for the painters?
For interior work, we ask that you remove all the furniture and valuables from the room. For exterior jobs, trim shrubs and bushes close to the house and remove potted plants, and anything else that can get in the way. Before starting any job we will always do our best to move furniture, window treatments and cover fixtures that can not be moved. On completion of the painting, we will place all items back in their correct location.
Q. How long will it take for the paint to dry?
It will vary from paint to paint and weather conditions. Expected drying times are listed on the paint can. It generally takes two weeks for the paint to fully cure and before a newly painted surface can be scrubbed. For more information see our interior, exterior care tips.
Q. Who supplies the paint?
Austin Painting will supply all paint and materials. The quotation provided to you by Austin Painting will list the paint brand and color that will be used. Customers may supply their own paint but this is rarely a good idea and often voids any type of warranty from the painting contractor.
Q. How do I choose paint colors?
Many professional painters will help you select colors but remember they are experts at painting not choosing colors. It is a good idea to look through magazines, make a list of the colors of your furnishings, go to your local paint store and get color swatches. If you want a complicated color scheme, it may be a good idea to hire a color consultant. Many professional painters and paint manufacture offer this service.
Q. What kind of painting maintenance is recommended?
For interior surfaces, dirt and scuff marks should be cleaned immediately with soap and water. Don’t use abrasive cleaners or scrub newly painted surfaces before the paint has cured (usually two weeks). Make sure your painter leaves you with some touch-up paint and the details of the brand of paint used, color number, etc, so that when it comes to repainting you can match colors. On a regular basis, you should walk around the exterior of your home looking for dry rot, water penetration, cracks, and chalking. Once a year it is a good idea to wash your home to remove the accumulation of surface dirt. High-pressure washes shouldn’t be used more than once every 12-18 months.
