Frequently Asked Questions about Painting
As a homeowner, maintenance work is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because doing the right maintenance can save you a whole lot of money and time. A curse because... who loves doing chores, really? Painting is one of the important maintenances you can do. You will have confusing questions about painting. In this blog, we will cover all the common questions that we get from customers about painting.
How often you should repaint your interior walls?
Painting isn't just a cost-effective way to change a room's appearance. Regularly and correctly repainting your home interiors can help walls look better and last longer.
Indoor areas have their own hazards in the form of children, pets, humidity, light or temperature variations, and cigarette smoke. Depending on the traffic load or the environment, certain locations are more likely to require maintenance on a regular basis.
On average, most interior paint jobs last from four to six years. If your kids are older or have no pets, it is possible that you can bump that up to 8 years.
How often you should repaint your exterior walls?
Exterior painting is both expensive and time-consuming. Painting is the first line of defense from the elements and is an important part of curb appeal. Knowing when to repaint your exterior is just as essential as knowing when to repaint your inside.
The exterior paint is subject to a whole lot of challenges like wear and tear from the weather, sunlight, and moisture in the form of rain and snow. A good rule of thumb is every 5 to 10 years depending on the paint quality and whether it is correctly painted.
How much will it cost to paint my Villa/Apartment?
This is the question that everybody asks but unfortunately, it's the hardest to answer. There are many factors in play. We start by finding out your objectives such as how long you plan to live in the house, the impact on kids and pets, and what the color will be.
Then we will have an inspection to check how many days and workers are needed to complete the job. Then we will give the quote for the Villa/Apartment.
What is the best time to paint your Apartment/Villa?
With modern technology, there is no such thing as a "best time." We always follow the manufacturer's guides on temperature and moisture. Normally we paint when it's warm and is not raining, so in UAE, we can paint at any time.
How should the client prepare for painting?
Exterior: Cut the bushes, trees, or other landscaping that is in contact with areas to be painted to allow the proper access. Things like small potted plants and furniture cushions should be moved. Inform the team if anything such as landscape lighting or a sprinkler system needed special attention.
Interior: Please transfer all tiny, breakable, or high-value things from the inside. If electronics must be relocated, disconnect the wiring. We will cover the large items like the sofa and beds.
