5 Signs of a Good painter | Home Glazer’s Painters

Painting walls always gives us the essence of entering new life along with feeling the warmth and peace of the beauty of the home. Finding the right painter for the job is essential to bring in the magic of feeling the beauty of the selected range of colours for painting walls. Therefore, it is essential to pick one who has the experience and focuses on quality rather than making quick money. Many painters promise to fix painting issues in a limited time so that they get the jobs quickly and make more and more money. Home Glazer on the other hand is completely against this policy as we believe walls need to be painted with patience so that the paint lasts for a long time and people do not need to recall again and again within months to fix the issue.

In this article, we will guide you to get to know five vital traits of a good painter. You must always look for some of these characteristics before you sign a contract with a painter.

Preparation is Foremost

Every good painter knows that the primary factor for a durable paint job is to have proper surface preparation. However, as per many experts and professionals, this is a feature that is lacking in many painters. The painters need to start the work by scraping loose paints. After this, they should power wash the surface.

Priming bare areas is also a crucial part of the process. This bare area can be areas like exposed wood. If there are any cracks, there are many better options than caulk. According to some experts, a cement-based stucco patch is much better and is far more effective. All these steps are often skipped by many to save time. However, all of these steps are vital and must be taken care of!

Also, it is best if the foundation of the home is weather-proofed. Rocks must be shovelled from the foundation of the home. The second step should be power washing. After this, a water-proof sealer must be used. All these steps should be followed before going for the painting. This will make sure that the painting will last for a longer time.

Proper Masking is Vital

Professional painters should be aware that your home is very important and dear to you as you have put in the majority of your hard-earned money in life to buy a house. Hence, a good painter will carefully seal the windows, doors, furniture, cars, and other related fragile items. Also, he should make sure that the pavers and concretes are covered using drop cloths to keep them safe.

Both concrete and pavers are porous. Therefore they are usually absorbent. So, they will absorb paint and spray easily. Hence, it becomes tedious to clean them. Covering the surfaces is crucial and is usually done by good painters.

A Good Painter Always Use Top-quality Products

Every good painter sticks to certain brands. This can be a positive sign many times. However, in the opinion of some expert painters, the brand does not always reveal the entire true story.

When you decide the paint type as per your budget, it is advisable to check the paint type with the coating which is then present at the site. Many reputable brands provide grade lines that don’t last for a long time to some painters.

The paints are like gasoline and it is available in many varieties like low, middle, and premium. The same case is with paint too. So, many options are of very low grade but the user may think he is using very good paint but the paint is actually of very poor quality.

The top-quality paints are pure 100% acrylic. So, you must be sure that the paints being used are of top quality. A good painter always ensures top-quality products for his painting project.

Good Paint Offers Longevity

We at Home Glazer know which paints last for a long. Hence we always go for a certain product that is known for its durability and premium quality. Also, when we start with the painting, we make sure that the water is out.

However, some painters believe that paints need to be mixed with some amount of water. But as believed by some experts, this is just a myth. A good painter never adds water to a bucket of paints.

Good Painter Will Always Go For a Double Inspection

A good painter will always go for an inspection before signing the contract or starting with his job. An even better painter will also go for a complete inspection of the work done by him. Moreover, before it is viewed by the owner of the site!

We advise our men to do a double inspection. As we usually have helpers who choose different colours and they will look for any defects or any place which has been missed by the painter. Then, we complete the missing parts with the same effectiveness.

However, sometimes it is also difficult to detect the signs when your home needs painting. How to understand that your home needs a good painter? Or, should you hire a painter right now, or should wait for five years? Being aware of these signs will help you to make better decisions. This will help you to get rid of the wear and tear of walls on your home in an effective manner.

If the paint on the walls is peeling, this is a clear indication that your home needs painting. Without proper painting, your home will look untidy and unclean. This may be the case even if the painting is peeled into only small parts. Such incidents usually happen in rooms that have a lot of humidity.

When you finally decide to paint your home, don’t forget to look for the above signs in your painter before you hire him. Hiring an expert like Home Glazer is important if you want to get durable paint that gives an altogether different look to your home.
