Always be sure to prep your roller and brushes before painting. You don’t want brush lint or bristles on your walls. And don’t forget to tape! .
Some walls in your home need to be repainted more frequently than others due to daily wear and tear. For example, if you only eat in your formal dining room a couple times a year during the holidays, you probably won’t need to paint the walls as often as those found in your kitchen, hallways, or bathroom. Painting Tip! Drywall repair prior to painting over dings and scrapes is often necessary. Professional painters also suggest paint with an eggshell sheen as it is great for hallways with a lot of foot traffic.
Your home’s style depends on the size and the location of your property and your personal preference. Think about whether you want a vibrant look with cool colors or a more warm and neutral tone. Some common home styles include coastal, modern, colonial, and cottage. Identify your style and start choosing the rest of the elements of your home.
Any company you hire should be licensed and insured in New Jersey. If sanding is required on a home built before 1978, you should also confirm they are Lead-Safe Certified from the EPA.
Most painters charge for their services per painter by the hour. The average rate is between $25 and $100 per hour and painter. If you have two painters working on your home, you can expect to pay between $50 and $200 per hour, while three painters would cost between $75 and $300 per hour. The more painters you have, the faster they can get the work done, reducing the total number of hours on the job. For priming and painting of the complete exterior of a 1,500 sq.ft. home, including the siding and the trim, the total number of hours needed is around 16 to 32 for a two-person team. This makes the labor portion of this job around $1,600 to $3,200 of the $2,500 to $6,000 total. If there is no need for priming, labor costs can be cut by half.
