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. For more information about house painting, wall colors and how to hire painters, contact Spectrum Painting today! They’ll make your New Jersey home look like new.

Very impressed with the professionalism of Charlie. He convinced me that Spectrum was the company I had to hire for my work. I know I made the right decision.

We had Spectrum Painting power wash and paint the outside of our house. They did such a fantastic job that we tripled the scope of the project during the process and the results are phenomenal. We wound up having them do the siding, window trim, doors, lights and much more. The end results is better then I expected. The entire Spectrum team was amazing throughout the process and on several occasions went above and beyond. I would highly recommend them.

I am so happy we chose to work with Spectrum Painting! The office manager Natalie was very responsive in setting up our estimate. Initially Rich came our for a detailed estimate and walk through. After going through the numbers and reviews we decided to go with Spectrum. Although they did not offer the lowest cost we felt like we knew what we were paying for. We were in the process of moving into our new home in Wayne, NJ so we would not be onsite to project manage daily. On the day our project began, Rich and his crew leader Brian met us at the house to walk through the project and colors. Brian was absolutely amazing to work with. He would call or text with daily updates and even sent some photos to make sure we were happy with the colors we chose. I felt completely comfortable leaving Brian and his team at our house for the full week alone to complete the project. Everyone was extremely professional, kept the place clean, and wore masks, which is important to us because I am pregnant and my husband has an auto-immune disease. I can not recommend Spectrum Painting enough! Though they didn't offer us the lowest cost estimate there work was worth it! If anyone is looking for a painter reach out to their team. You won't be disappointed!

The preparation and sanding of our decks was way beyond expectations-Truly a professional execution.

Your professional workers just left and like the last time I am refreshingly amazingly Happy!! I wish I could afford to tip them! I told them in a world where everyone is out for themselves it is heartwarming to meet people of honest quality who do a perfect job with smiles on their faces. They go beyond my expectations. This time I asked them to caulk a hole in a wall that they did not paint. They not only caulked it for me - they found the paint and painted the spot for me! I am so proud of your company and thank you very much.
