Making the decision to paint your house involves several choices. When you’re prepared to update the interior of your home with fresh paint, you’ll need to make decisions about paint colours, paint sheens, and possibly even hiring professional painters. Although you can get plenty of interior design inspiration in magazines, online, and in other people’s houses, it can be a little more difficult to find the dos and don’ts.
Here are a few frequently asked questions about interior painting that Osholding is prepared to address to get you going.
We’ll attempt to keep it brief even though the answer to this question could fill several pages. Lighting is the first thing to take into account. When a room is painted a light hue, it will appear brighter, bigger, and more open than it actually is. A darker hue can be used to make larger spaces feel a little cosier. Darker hues produce a more dramatic atmosphere in compact spaces. The mood you want to convey in a room as well as your personal style really influence the paint colours.
Even if you are certain that you have made the perfect choice, it is still worthwhile to invest the time and money to get a sample and try it in your space. The way paint colours seem in your house can be very different from how they do in a paint store or online. Instead of painting little splotches all over your room, paint a poster board in the colours of your choice, then tape it to the wall. Move the poster board about the space to observe how your colour responds to various lighting conditions.
Actually, selecting a sheen is simpler than selecting a paint hue. The majority of internal spaces will be painted with satin or eggshell finishes. A wonderful middle ground between matte and high-gloss coatings is eggshell. It produces a polished finish that is simple to clean. Doors, trim, and cabinets are examples of smaller sections that can be painted with a high gloss or semi-gloss shine. These areas look better with some gloss because they are less prone to get dirty. The most typical application of matte sheen is on surfaces like your ceiling. Although painting with a matte sheen is simple, it is difficult to clean, so it is preferable to apply it in locations with less foot activity.
Taking all of the furniture out of a room is the first step in getting it ready for painting. The centre of the room can be filled with furniture if it is large enough. After that, remove everything off the walls. Before painting, patch any holes left in the walls from previously hung artwork or portraits.
Osholding can assist you with selecting paint colours, selecting a paint sheen, and locating qualified painters for the task, whether you’re painting just one or two rooms or your entire Dublin home.
When buying a property, some individuals repaint it solely to change the colour, while others repaint it right before selling it to make it look better from the outside. However, if your home is stained, you should have it painted every 4 to 7 years and every 5 to 10 years. The impacts of salt air on homes along the shoreline cause painting to be required more frequently. The amount of previous prep work (sanding, scraping), as well as the calibre of the paint used, can affect how long your present paint job will endure. Peeling could be brought on by indoor moisture if your home is poorly insulated and has a poor moisture barrier. Your paint work will suffer if you have leaking gutters or if the caulking around your pipes is splitting and cracking. If the paint’s weather resistance is starting to deteriorate, siding may shrink, fracture, or start to cup, and nails may burst.
Stain makes it possible to view the wood’s drying out process. Paint that is exposed to direct sunlight may fade or become chalky. Low-quality paint with little pigment can start to take on multiple colours with time and exposure to the sun. If stucco isn’t painted every 5-7 years, it can start to crack and even come off the home in parts. Similar to changing the oil in your automobile, many people develop a pattern of painting their homes every 5-7 years in an effort to stop damage from occurring in the first place.
We use a mix primer and a latex top coat for painting the outside. We utilise latex-based stains for solid stains and oil for semitransparent stains. Metal railings are painted with oil-enameled paint. Exterior oil-based paints are no longer used because they were long ago made illegal. Alkyd or oil priming and latex top coats are used for painting the interior (or latex primer as well). The inner top coat may also be made of oil, depending on the circumstance.
We exclusively work with top-notch paints. There are three price points for each manufacturer’s paints: cheap, medium, and premium. Only the top tier of their product lines are used by us. Although we may have have used the paint of your choice, we prefer one of the two brands specified.
Any carpentry work required for painting is handled by us. If there are problems, we can solve them as part of the preparation for painting, so you won’t need to engage a carpenter from outside. We fix siding, trim, moulding, etc. Additionally, we caulk, repair, and sand sheetrock. The point is that we provide you with the full finish you desire, not simply paint.
This choice is influenced by a few things. On the exterior, we apply a top coat of premium paint after a very thick primer. One coat of each can do the trick if you stick with the same colour or just a shade different. If the colour is going to change substantially, we apply two coats of exterior paint. Unless you insist on only one application and the wood isn’t too dry, stain treatments require two coats. On occasion, we will apply two coats on the sunny side of the home and one on the interior, but we typically advise applying two. Two thin coats of paint are always used when painting over aluminium or vinyl siding.
If there were no freezing temperatures the previous night, the outside paint and priming we use are rated for 34 degrees or warmer. Only when the weather is around 43 degrees or above do we typically enjoy painting.
No, all we need is a brief phone conversation with you to discuss your needs (or an email response to those questions) in order to provide you with a price for exterior painting. We must know specific details, such as what you want included (home, garage, deck, etc.), and whether or not you need a lot of carpentry work or window replacement, among other things. If you intend to change your hair completely, please let us know as well. You may speed up the quote process for both interior and exterior painting by using our mobile phone app.
We are unable to provide you with an accurate and binding price for interior painting based solely on your description. At the very least, we need to see images of the rooms, the walls, etc.
For us, that poses no issue. People typically have spare time around that period, so we frequently provide quotes on weekends.
Do you have paint sample swatches? I’m not sure what paint colours I want.
When we meet with you, we can give you a fan deck—a series of colour samples—to look at. Sample cards are also available at stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot.
The day before we begin, we will often need to know your preferences for interior and exterior painting. If there is a lot of prep work involved in exterior painting, you can still change your mind even after we start. When we are completing the prep work for interior painting, we can hang some sample colours on the wall so you can see how they seem in real life as well.
You can relocate fragile goods and tiny items to make way for interior painting. If you can manage them yourself, you might wish to remove any photos or mirrors that are attached to the wall.
Any heavier items that we cannot manoeuvre around will be moved, and we will cover everything with plastic, tarps, etc. Move small items like potted plants away from the home when painting the exterior. You should move any window-mounted air conditioners inside your home if you have them. If necessary, we can assist you with that. We do request that you turn on the hose for our usage and that you do not park close to your home.
You may indeed go to work, conduct errands, etc. We have a complete licence and insurance. Although it could seem a little intrusive, all we are doing is painting and beautifying your home. You don’t need to clean before we arrive! We have worked inside and outdoors hundreds of homes.
No, we handle all repairs so you don’t have to, even if there is a significant amount of damage (which we would include in a quote as a separate payment). It’s a step in the process of getting ready.
If necessary, we will replace any decaying wood trim, siding, or shingles on your home so that it is weatherproof and no longer actively decomposing.
We send a group of 3-5 painters for a typical home. We may come up to 8-10 people if the house is particularly big or if we have a limited amount of time. Every day, we have several crews operating throughout the state, so anytime we need to focus resources, we can. Most contractors are unable to claim that as an advantage.
It takes about 5-7 days to paint the exterior of a normal house, which is about 2500 square feet. It depends on how much sanding, maintenance, re-glazing, etc. is necessary. We send a sufficient number of people to each job so that we may complete it without rushing. We send one or two painters to the task to ensure that it doesn’t take weeks to complete. Depending on how many rooms there are, interior works typically take the same amount of time.
It’s uncommon, and we always keep an eye on the forecast. If this happens, we come back after it has dried and prep that side one more before repainting the troubled area.
If there is additional work, we may talk about it and simply increase the quoted time and materials. We will charge you for the additional paint and the time required to repaint the area or room if you change your mind about the colour after it has been painted (it happens!).
Within two hours, exterior paint often dries to the touch. Before we can recoat it, it needs to dry for at least 4 hours. Within an hour or two, interior paint is touchable.
No, we return everything to its original location after moving it; we only use our own resources. We vacuum as needed, trying to leave no trace that we were even there.
Climate, sun exposure, and the actual paint surface all play a role in this. High-end paint (which is all we use) should last about 7-9 years if you have adequate preparation, a solid slow-drying primer, good sanding and caulking, no rot, a decent moisture barrier, and no gutter concerns. The lifespan of a stain is more difficult to predict; it can range from three to thirteen years depending on the quantity of sun exposure, the environment, and how dark the stain is.
Every time we complete a work, we have extra paint left over, which we provide to you in case you need it (for interior or exterior touch-ups).
