How to Save Money on Painting Your House $$$$$$$$ - Paintway

save-money-on-exterior-painting

People start exterior and interior home painting projects for many reasons – to beautify and extend lives of their houses, to improve curb appeal, or to raise value of a house in order to sell it faster.

But whatever the reason, the following home painting tips will help you save money on your next home improvement painting project.

Repaint your home more often

This may sound counter-intuitive, but with regular maintenance painting you can keep the surfaces protected and avoid costly repairs.

A lot of homeowners wait too long before scheduling exterior home painting, thinking they are saving some money, but instead they end up with failing/peeling paint, cracks, dryrot, mold/mildew and water damage – conditions that are very expensive to fix. It’s like being penny wise and dollar dumb.

Besides, if you take into account that the biggest costs of any housepainting job come from labor, you will realize that the longer you wait, the more you’ll end up paying because of all the scraping, sanding,priming and repairs that your house will need.

It’s much cheaper to keep your house and your budget under control by being proactive – a properly and regularly maintained house usually needs just one fresh coat of paint and minimum surface preparation – your savings will reach into thousands.

Choose the best

“I am not rich enough to buy cheap things” – this saying holds true for so many things in life, but especially for house painting.

The primary purpose of quality paint is to protect your home from the elements, and its decorative value is just a nice bonus. So when you buy cheap paint, you are not saving any money, just the opposite – you are wasting it, because the thing you bought does not do what you bought it to do.

The same goes for getting quotes for painting – low bidders cut corners on surface preparation, and without proper surface prep the paint will not hold well – you may have to pay someone else to redo the job. You can avoid paying more and paying twice if you choose a reputable house painting contractor who will do the job right the first time.

Some people spread their exterior and interior home painting projects throughout the year – they hire a house painter just for painting a room, then a couple months later they call him back to paint something else in the house and so on.

But if you group your exterior and interior home painting projects together to be done at the same time, you can usually get a “volume” discount from your house painting contractor – he will save  on setting up and wrapping up and will pass those savings on to you.
