-- The Atlanta house painting
company, The Painting Penguin, discusses how to plan an exterior painting budget. Most homeowners are quick to fear the numbers game, let alone know how to play it, when it comes to home improvement projects. The ironic thing is that many costs, particularly the ones concerning painting, can be kept down with proper, routine maintenance.
The longer you let a simple, affordable problem sit, the worse it will be over time. The climate in Atlanta is much more favorable for exterior paint than in northern regions, but that also does not mean you should go years without repainting.
Inspect First, Budget Later
The average lifespan for new paint is roughly five to 10 years, though this depends on material quality and other important factors. The first thing to do before jumping to conclusions about price is to perform a thorough assessment (or have an expert do it for you) of the exterior. The paint may not be in as bad shape as you think.
Trim work that has demonstrated signs of fading, peeling or cracking should be fixed immediately, but always consult a professional prior to stocking up on gallons of new paint.
According to Stephen Popov, Managing Partner of the Painting Penguin, "Selecting the right contractor is more important than the type of paint you want. You should only consider hiring a qualified, licensed company that is insured and that has adequate experience. The best paint will do nothing when applied incorrectly."
