Whether you decide to do the preparation work yourself or have a professional do it as part of your project, proper preparation makes all the difference in creating a smooth and lasting finish. Do it correctly the first time or you’ll quickly end up spending more to fix peeling and chipping paint. Follow this process before starting on your home's exterior. Keep in mind that the process may vary based on your siding materials: Thornton House Painting

You can paint much more than just your walls. Acrylic paints are ideal for home decor and craft projects. Since they’re water-based, they clean up easily and dry fast. You can use acrylics to add a colorful stripe to a wall, work with large format stencils to make a pattern or even create your own unique look by mixing two sheens. Use spray paint to refinish your old bicycle or give any surface an updated look – glitter, mirror or just a new solid color.  Thornton House Painters
I worked with H & E last fall when they painted my house interior. The actual bid ended up being more than they initial guessed it might be because we did a lot more than I originally asked for. They skim-coated some heavily-textured walls and did doors, trim and closet interiors. The final price for 6 rooms + hallway in my 1550 sq ft house was around $3000. A lot, but not outrageous and they did a beautiful job. They even mopped the floors when they were through. They finished in just a few days, whereas if I had tried to do it I’d still be working on it. I gave them the color codes of the shades I wanted, they got SW to mix it, and SW called me to pay over the phone. Pretty painless!

When you have a gorgeous, sprawling Craftsman style home set in the woods, you'll want an exterior paint color that works with, not against, your surroundings. The green color of this sustainable home, from Asheville architects ACM Design PA, works in perfect harmony with the lush surrounding trees as well as with the manufactured stone veneer apron and crisp white trim.
Exterior paint jobs depend on the house’s square footage, though the number of stories and other variables will affect the price. The cost is typically between $1 to $1.80 per square foot. A a 1,500 square foot house would cost the customer $1,500 to $2,500 and a 3,000 square foot house would cost the customer $3,500 to $4,500, according to Painting Leads. Thornton House Painting

Prepping a house costs anywhere from $0.50 to $2.50 per square foot. This is almost always included in the total project price. However, the DIYer might negotiate some discounts for completing this work on their own. Be warned, proper prep is key to the quality and durability of the finish. If you do this work yourself, the contractor might no guarantee to finished product. Thornton House Painting

If you're thinking about selling your home, you might want to repaint areas that look especially worn, dull or chipped so your house looks fresh and new to potential buyers. On the other hand, it’s possible some potential buyers will repaint the home upon moving in. So if you have a limited budget, your money (and time) might be better invested in other types of home projects, such as remodeling your bathroom or kitchen, installing new floors or fixing broken appliances.

I first reviewed DECA August 20, 2015. Since then Carlos has performed many tasks for me from bathroom remodeling, to house painting, fence staining, concrete staining, home maintenance, the list goes on. Hell, this morning he helped me fix the front wheel on my wife's tricycle! Carlos won't tell you, but he recently did volunteer work with his church in Houston in the aftermath of the massive flooding. We are selling our home and downsizing to a two bedroom apartment in Denton and that's the only reason we are ending our professional relationship with Carlos. Carlos is more than a top-notch professional in all aspects of home remodeling and maintenance, he is a good man; they don't come any better. We will miss him and his crews. Thank you, Carlos.

When speaking with painter I specifically asked if two coats would be used. Was told I would be totally happy with work when finished. Everything was sprayed and with only one coat. The paint is wiping right off the walls. I was told touch up paint would be left in the garage and no paint was left. I have noticed that several trim edges were not painted and tried to contact the owner with no response. Not at all happy. When I pointed out that the paint was easily wiping off was told it was because of the color I chose. I’ve owned two homes and have never had such a poor paint job. House Painting Thornton
