While most home improvement projects require professionals, many people still think they should paint their homes themselves. While you’re not like to build an addition on your home, pour foundations, build garages or install HVAC systems, a paint job seems small in comparison. However, it’s harder to paint than it may seem at first, which is why painting contractors in Oak Park are essential.
What They Are/Do
Primarily, a contractor works under someone else or is part of a small company of many painters. They can obviously paint your home (both the inside and outside), but they may also offer other services, such as masonry work, carpentry and more.
There are a variety of paint jobs available, including window trims, full-house options, and more. However, they will cover things that won’t get painted, such as floors, counters, cabinets, windows, furniture and more. Likewise, they may remove items, such as furniture or request that you do so before their arrival.
They may also prepare the surfaces, which can include scraping away loose paint, sanding, and other minor things. They’ll also remove lights, doors, electrical plates and other things. They will then prime the wall with primer, apply two coats of paint, paint molding and trim, perform touch-ups, clean the area and have you come in for a final evaluation of the job.
Tips To Learn More
Once you’ve chosen between the vast array of contractors in Oak Park, you’ll want to determine the type of paint they’ll use and how many coats you’ll need. Likewise, you can ask whether the paint is included in the written estimate (that you should request before work commences), and how long they expect the job to last.
