4 Common Exterior Painting Questions

March 14, 2018

Once the weather warms up a bit more, our experienced painters at Jerry Enos Painting will be out in full force for the season working on the exteriors of homes in our region. Savvy homeowners know that there are questions they should consider before choosing a paint and a painting company. Here are some of the five most common things to consider when painting your exterior.

How often should I paint my home’s exterior?

There are many factors that determine how long your exterior paint should last including: the quality of paint used, the condition of the surface, climate and environmental factors, and the sun exposure on the home. Getting the longest life out of your exterior paint can mean regular cleanings, repairs to wood siding, and touch ups to areas that are showing wear and tear. With a little TLC your paint job can last many years.

Should You Hire Out for Exterior Painting or Should You Do-It-Yourself?

If you are a weekend warrior and feel up to the task then go for it, but if you feel like you don’t want to be on a ladder, or spend all of your free time painting, or have no idea how to paint then hiring a reputable, reliable, and experienced painting company is the best course of action. Jerry Enos Painting has been doing exterior and interior painting for over two decades in the North Shore region.

What Should I look for in a Painting Company?

First, find out the reputation the company has. Are they reliable, well trained, and do the job the right way the first time. Remember, they will be painting your most valuable possession – your home. Then find out about insurance and licensing. Do some research online on Yelp, the Better Business Bureau, and other online review locations to find out what they are rated and what customers are saying about them.

What Should I ask the Painting Contractor?

While meeting a team member should give you a good “gut” feel for the company as a whole, there are some questions you may want to ask when interviewing painting companies. Find out what surface prep they do. Ask about the quality of paint being used. Ask what the clean up procedure is at the end of every day. Ask what is included in the estimate – is it labor or labor and materials? Request that they give you names of people in your area whom they have done work for so you can look at the quality yourself.
