Three Things to Know Before Painting an Exterior

Though it might not seem like it yet, it’s officially springtime in New Jersey. This means warmer weather is on the horizon and we can soon get excited about green grass, barbeques and much more time spent outside. And while you spend more time outside, you might also plan house or business property projects like landscaping or exterior painting. But before you do, all major projects require research and a great professional’s help.

If you’re in the market to repaint the exterior of your home or business, consider these three things before you take out your exterior paint colors and paint brushes:. That’s where Spectrum Painting comes in!

Consider the time of year. This is a huge factor, and probably the first thing you want to think about before moving forward with any house painting or purchasing paint color. As you know, New Jersey can have late freezes and even late snow, which means trying to hire painters for the exterior of your home is probably not the best choice. Consider summer months to ensure the winter weather has moved out and before extreme heat settles in. Late May and early June are great options. Fall months like September and October are also ideal months to take care of all your house painting needs.

Consider the quality over the cost. You home is your sanctuary. When it comes to exterior paint colors and painters, the quality of the service and product is incredibly important. It’s understandable to be mindful of service costs and the wall paint, but quality over quantity is a sure way to get the best finished product possible. The same goes for your business. A commercial space needs to always look professional. Don’t cut corners with the exterior painting colors and the wall paint. It’s the first thing your clients will see when they pull into the parking lot.

Consider preparation. This is another incredibly important factor for planning to paint the exterior of your home. It’s easy to underestimate the project at hand, but exterior painting isn’t just slapping on a coat of paint on the outside of your house and calling it a day. There are specific measures you should take before starting the project, which is why calling professional painters to do the job is always recommended. They’ll make sure the job gets done quickly and efficiently. Preparations include sanding, washing and priming before the house painting begins. You will also want to cover windows, doors, glass and landscape for protection. This will help avoid messes and damage to other areas of your property.

Choosing your exterior paint is only the beginning of all the fun. Just be sure to do your research before you begin. If you feel a little overwhelmed and don’t want to do the project yourself, professional painters like Spectrum Painting can take care of it. With no hassle and great finished exterior walls, your paint project can be one more thing to check off the summer project list.

Absolutely never go with anyone else. Always an amazing job and always worth every penny. They clean up and it's like they were never here when they're done. Our crew today was Marcin, Alejandro and Jose and we were thrilled with the results. Previous Review: I absolutely loved everything about Spectrum. We did not have an easy process but they were great the whole way through! First, about a month ago I called and spoke to Rich about an estimate based on square footage. He gave me one that I knew was out of our budget, but then worked with us to see what we can get done for what we could afford. We ended up well within our price range and with a beautiful painting job and flat walls. We were asking them to come to see our new condo during closing so that they could paint before we moved initially. Finally our sellers decided we will close on a Tuesday and Rich came in that day, gave us a hard number and had his guys come paint on Thursday!!! I had an incredible experience on a very strict budget and cannot recommend Spectrum enough.
