Looking to Do Some Exterior Painting? Consider These Factors First
Is your home or business looking a little worse for wear? It might be time to uplift the appearance of your exterior building with some paint and elbow grease – but finding the right tools, paint, and technique for the job is no small feat. Some home and business owners even resort to hiring whomever they can find to tackle the task for them, only to be left with messy results. You want it neat, fast, and most importantly, protective. This is where we at Unique Painters can help you. We have been in the industry for over 13 years, and we know precisely how to transform the face of any building from dull and dreary to attractive and stylish. Before you begin on your endeavour to renovate your home or business with a fresh coat of paint, however, there are a few factors you must first consider.
The Colours That Suit the Environment Best
Colours speak. They can alter our moods by making us feel happier or more sombre. They also impact a brand’s overall image – fun and trendy colours make as loud a statement as the subdued and serious shades on the spectrum. For homeowners, it is important to not only increase the home’s curb appeal but the overall value of the home. Superb exterior painting means that even the most ordinary of houses looks and feels more expensive. For businesses, the last thing you want is to own a building that clashes with its surroundings and acts as an eyesore to passers-by. Aim to attract and invite through your choice in colour.
Assessing the Condition of the Exterior
Exterior painting is not as easy as painting a wall and calling it a day. The condition of your walls still needs to be assessed. Penetrating damp, for instance, can cause massive structural damage, as well as mould and mildew. Cracks in your walls are another issue to consider, and many cases of cracked walls require replastering. Then, you need to think about priming and treating your walls and using the right kind of paint to ensure that the external surface of the walls is not porous enough to succumb to the harsh South African elements. What begins as simple painting, as you can see, can quickly turn into a hassle too time-consuming to manage alone.
The Tools and Clean-up Required
Using the best tools and products makes a world of difference when it comes to the final result of a paint job. You want a seamless, tidy finish. Without enough experience, safety precautions, or high-quality brushes and paint, however, your task becomes much harder. Clean-up also takes quite a bit of time, and for business owners, may even disrupt customers walking through the door.
Hiring Professionals to Get it Done Right
A fantastic external paint job is a small investment that makes a huge impact. It makes sense, then, to hire someone fit for the job. For clients in Pretoria, Centurion, and Midrand, we at Unique painters offer an extensive range of services at unbeatable prices.
