Getting Started

When finding the right person to paint your house, or any property you’re looking to have get redesigned, it’s best to research and prepare to get the right contractor for the job. There are many contractors out there with various skills and abilities when it comes to painting. Some might rush and get the job done quickly, but the quality will suffer. Others will take their time, and you may spend more if you pay per hour, but the results will look fantastic. Finding that perfect balance is the key thing to do when it comes time to finding a contractor. Be sure to call and give the contractor all the information you can on the house and what kind of painting job you’re looking to get. If there’s something specific about the house that needs to be painted professionally, say for example you want a graphic done on the side of the house that needs to be addressed right away. You don’t want to risk having your special design get messed up by an inexperienced contractor.

What Comes Before

Before any painting can be done, the two of you must discuss what kind of paint you want done on the house. There are various paint types, some of which include:

  • Primer
  • Sealer
  • Satin Finish
  • Gloss/semi gloss

When painting with these specialty paints, the contractor will have all the information necessary in order for you to understand what’s going to happen to your wall or siding after the painting process ends. They will also discuss payment plans and the location of the house. If the house is big, they may have a couple assistants to help paint the larger regions.

While They Work

When the painter Brisbane contractor(s) arrive, they’ll discuss what’s going to happen next and how they will go about painting. Once they start painting, you don’t have to worry about a thing. Let them work and do their job. Be sure that you have everything in the area taken down and kept far away from the working area. Consider the section of the house to be a work zone rather than a living area until the paint is dry and all the furniture can return. Some customers will be tempted to look over the work and give pointers. Let the contractors do their job and go do something else to occupy your time until they finish. Their experience should guarantee that they will know what they are doing. Of course there should always be some concern when a big paint job is happening, but allow them to work for a bit before checking in from time to time.


Upon finishing, the contractors will clean up and talk with you about payment. Upon finishing the payment, you’re done! Just have all the furniture and hardware put back and you’ll have yourself brand new, professionally painted walls. Contractors are always a good idea if you have enough money to afford them. It beats getting yourself messy and potentially ruining the walls.
