Minneapolis Home Painters
In Minneapolis-St. Paul, interior and exterior paint jobs are two of the best ways to breathe new life into your home. Think hard about whether this is a job you want to tackle on your own, however. While painting is absolutely a job that's within reach of almost any homeowner, doing it right takes a lot of time and patience. Add to that the fact that a "perfect" paint job is probably out of the question if you're a first timer (proper painting technique is one of those degrees you can only earn at the school of hard knocks, no matter how much you read up on it ahead of time), and a lot of Twin Cities residents choose to hire the job out to a professional home painter in Minneapolis. That being said, here's a few painting tips that are specific to the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, as well as some information on what to expect cost and project duration wise if you're leaning toward hiring a house painter in Minneapolis to slap on the paint for you.
Not surprisingly, interior painting doesn't vary much region to region, so we won't spend too much time on it here. Prep properly by cleaning, patching, and priming necessary surfaces before you paint, protect flooring and furniture with drop cloths, remove all light switch and outlet coverings, as well as door and window hardware, and tape off areas like trim, doors, and windows for tighter lines and a cleaner painting experience. Follow those basic steps, along with any tips you can glean from the store you purchase your paint from, and your project will turn out fine.
Exterior Painting Tips
Exterior painting in the Twin Cities isn't quite so straightforward. With weather that's as varied as anywhere in the country, and cold that hits early and hangs around late, you need to be conscious of the weather in Minneapolis-St. Paul prior to painting the exterior of your home. The following are some rules to think about if you want your paint job to look good and last as long as possible in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
Costs and Project Durations
If you research and prepare ahead of time and follow the rules mentioned above, you'll be fine if you choose to do it yourself. If you're thinking about hiring your job out, however, you're probably a lot more concerned with how much it's going to run, and how long it's going to take, then when to call it a day. HomeAdvisor sends out post-project surveys to every Twin Cities homeowner that uses our referral service in order to find a painter so we can ensure that our customers get quality service, and we can collect valuable data. Using those surveys as a guide, we can give you a good idea of what you're getting into if you hire a Minneapolis house painter to do your interior or exterior work.
Costs and Project Durations
Deciding Whether to DIY or Hire a Minneapolis Home Painter
This is a tough decision, and ultimately you'll have to figure it out for yourself. Things to think about, however, include cost, how much time you have to work with, your expectations for the finished product, and how soon you want your job done. Obviously, a professional house painter in Minneapolis is going to get the job done much faster than you will (days instead of weeks), will probably do a better job, and you'll cut down on the inconvenience factor by more than you can imagine. The main benefit to doing it yourself, on the other hand, is saving money. That being said, hopefully the figures above will help you decide whether you need to keep your paint job in-house, or whether it makes more sense to preserve a little sanity and hire the job out.
