Money Saving Tips and Tricks

Since we recently discussed the actual process of painting your home, we figured today we would talk about how to prepare for the job itself. With a little preparation and some planning, you can cut costs and save time when painting the exterior of your home.

Repairing and repainting the outside of your home is imperative. It’s one of the most important things you can do as a homeowner to protect your home from the elements. As soon as you notice weather damage, cracking or chipping you should either call the professional house painters at Pristine Painting, or plan on making the repairs yourself. If you choose to go it alone, be sure to keep these tips in mind:

Pick Your Paint: With the abundance of color choices available these days, it can be hard to choose a paint. Most manufacturers offer good, better and best paints, but it can sometimes be hard to tell the difference. In order to avoid spending unnecessary money follow this simple plan. First, gauge the amount of paint you’ll need by measuring the area you wish to paint. Next, set a budget for yourself. Now, when you go to the store, you will have already narrowed the selection of paint that you have to choose from. This makes the final decision that much easier.


Prep Work

Prepping your surface might seem boring and unnecessary, but it can actually save you loads of time and money in the long run. Be sure to thoroughly clean the exterior of your home first. Then check for any loose nails or holes, fill the holes with putty and pound in the nails. Next, sand away any loose or flaking paint. Finally, prime any bare wooden areas before doing exterior painting.


People like to ask us, “Should I use a roller or a brush?” The answer? Both! Both of these tools are very valuable for any painting job. Use the roller to fill in the large open areas, and the brush to delicately paint the smaller areas.

Start at the Top

Painting your home is one of the few things in life where you get to start at the top, so do it! Starting at the top and working your way down will help prevent you from leaning into your freshly applied paint and ruining all of your hard work!
