How to Save Money on Professional Painting Costs
These days, all of us can appreciate being able to save money. Painting a home’s interior is not easy, and you should expect to compensate your painters appropriately for their hard work. But, did you know that there are some things that you can do to reduce the amount of work for your painters, and therefore save you money?
Remove Everything From Your Walls
Removing pictures and other objects from walls can be time-consuming. As a result, you’ll end up being charged to take down these things. You can save money on painting costs by doing this step on your own. Before painters arrive, take the time to ensure that everything is removed from the walls of the room that’s being painted.
Clear Out the Room
In addition to removing things from your walls, you can also save money by clearing out the entire room. This includes things such as desks, chairs, small appliances, and other items that aren’t extremely heavy or bolted to the floor. Keep these things in a spare room, the attic, in the basement, or your garage until the painters have completed their job.
Place Furniture in the Middle of the Room
Any furniture that remains in the room should be pushed to the center, away from the walls. Save money by doing this step on your own and not having the painters do it for you. Once the furniture has been moved to the center of the room, be sure to cover it with a protective covering to ensure paint won’t damage it.
Remove Curtains and Blinds
Since your windows are likely not being painted, it’s common for homeowners to forget to remove the blinds and curtains. Your painter will be glad to remove it for you, but you can save time and money by doing it yourself. You can even take the opportunity to take these curtains to the dry cleaners as your room is being painted.
Paint During Off-Peak Times
Every business has its peak and off-peak times, and painters are no different. During off-peak times, you can often have your house painted at a reduced rate. Ask your Allentown, PA, residential painter when are their specific off-peak times and ask to schedule an appointment during that time.
