2 Things To Do Before Painters Come To Your House

Posted on

If you are going to have the outside of your house painted, you may want to talk to the painting company about what you might need to do to get your house ready for them to come out and do the painting for you. If you do the things that the professionals recommend, they can get the job done quicker, and it will be a lot easier for everyone. So, what are some of the things that the painters might want you to do?

Remove Decorations

One of the things that they might like for you to do before they get there is to remove all the decorations that you might have on the sides of your house. That can include things like house numbers, weathers, holiday lights, and anything else that might be on your house. Just taking those things off will make things like painting prep a lot easier, as well as the actual painting. For example, if you have removed all of the decorations on the side of your house, then the painters will be able to use a spray gun to paint your house easily, without having to worry about trying to edge around decorations or not cover things up. 

Pull Things Away from House

You also want to make sure that you have created space for the painters to actually work in. That means that you need to pull everything away from the house. You want to pull away things like planters, grills, toys, and things like that. If you can pull them away from your house and put them somewhere that will be out of the way, they aren't going to get painted, and the painters will be able to walk around near your house, which will them do the work easily. Once the painters have finished and your house is all finished, you can put everything back, and have all your accessories and decorations back around your house the way that you want it to be. 

If you are going to get your house painted, you want to make sure that you talk to the painters before they come out. They may want for you to do some things before they get out to your house so that they will have an easier job of painting your house and making your vision happen. If you can help them, it will make everyone happier.
