It’s hard to know your obligations when you hire residential painters for interior and decorative painting. If you’re getting a room painted, is it your responsibility to clear it out, or do painters move furniture? The answer depends a lot on who you hire for residential painting services. Choosing a company with the lowest estimate may seem like saving money. But homeowners should consider the additional burden of clearing out rooms themselves. Or what the final product will look like if a company cuts corners during preparation. When you ask a company if their painters move furniture, you’re really asking if they take the time to do the job the right way.

How do residential painters prepare a room for painting?

Residential painters have years of experience in painting the interior and exterior of homes. It can take days for homeowners to DIY a repainting project. Residential painters can get the same work done in a few hours or a single day, with exceptional results that will look great for years to come.

The expertise of painters is, in part, the well-honed technique of quickly and evenly applying paint to a wall. Just as critical is the care put into preparing a room for painting. Residential painters will:

  • Move furniture away from walls
  • Apply primer to drywall in new constructions
  • Fill holes from nails or screws
  • Repair cracks and caulk gaps between trim and walls
  • Sand glossy surfaces to ensure adhesion of the fresh paint
  • Wash greasy or dirty areas on walls

Residential painters move furniture, install drop cloths, and do whatever is necessary to get results that look great. Thorough prep speeds up the painting process and ensures the final result looks brand-new for years to come.

Should you use a color consultation service?

When selecting a residential painter for your home, consider whether they offer professional color consultation. Choosing the right color for every room of your home isn’t just about finding colors you like. Color can make a space look larger, highlight a room’s best attributes, and create a cohesive style for your home.

Many people wait until they’re getting ready to sell their home before hiring professionals to paint it. But a color consultation and paint service can transform a home you’ve lived in for years to feel like a brand-new property.

How often should you have your home repainted?

Residential painters like Fox Painting go the extra mile with preparation, so the results look great for years. When a home changes ownership, it’s frequently painted before going on the market and occasionally after new owners move it. But even if you don’t have plans to move anytime soon, your property can benefit from professional residential painters.

Painting is one of the most affordable ways to renovate your home. Depending on the quality of paint and the general wear and tear on your walls, you should have your home’s interior repainted every five to ten years.
