Be Cautious of Hiring the Right Company or Person to Paint your House.

Unfortunately, some companies hire painters and offer to give them any profit on what they quoted for materials vs. what is used. This can cause painters to want to "stretch" the paint and make it last longer. Some painters may add water to paint in an attempt to make it last longer and cut material costs. However, this is not a recommended practice as it can result in a number of issues.

Firstly, adding water to paint can dilute the pigments and alter the color, resulting in an inconsistent finish. Additionally, adding too much water can affect the durability and adhesion of the paint, leading to cracking, peeling, or flaking.

Furthermore, if the paint is not applied properly, it may not provide adequate coverage, requiring additional coats to achieve the desired finish. This can result in a longer project timeline, which can be frustrating for residents.

Ultimately, using proper paint ratios and application techniques is essential to achieving a high-quality finish that will last. Homeowners should be wary of painters who suggest cutting corners by adding water to paint, and should seek out professionals who prioritize quality and safety over cutting costs.

At the Painting Standard we don't mark up material costs or pay painters profit on material costs saved so when you hire the Painting Standard you trust that we will use quality paint and do the job right.

While we all want to cut costs, hiring the lowest bid painter can sometimes end up "costing" you more. See below for some areas to be cautious in what type of painter you hire. 

Residents should be cautious about who they hire to paint their home for several reasons:

Overall, it is important for residents to do their due diligence when hiring painters, including checking references and verifying the painters' credentials, to ensure that they are hiring a qualified professional who will provide quality work without posing any hazards or causing additional expenses.

If you have questions about your painting estimate - just ask! We hire skilled painters and are fully insured so you can trust The Painting Standard to deliver quality work. 

How long will it take to paint my house?

The duration of an exterior residential paint job can vary depending on several factors, including the size of your house, the condition of the existing paint, the complexity of the design, the number of coats needed, and the weather conditions. However, I can provide you with a rough estimate.

For a standard-sized single-family house, a professional painting crew can typically complete the exterior paint job within one to two weeks. This timeframe includes the preparation work, such as cleaning and repairing surfaces, scraping off old paint, priming, and applying multiple coats of paint.

Keep in mind that larger houses or those with intricate architectural details may require more time. Additionally, adverse weather conditions such as rain or extreme heat can cause delays and extend the project timeline.

It's best to consult with professional painters who can assess the specifics of your house and provide you with a more accurate estimate based on your particular requirements.
