Exterior Painting Schedules Fill up Fast - Don't Wait to Schedule Yours!
In the beautiful days of late spring and early summer, it seems like the pleasant weather stretches ahead of us for months to come. Hopefully, this is the case! However, that feeling can lead us to think that we have plenty of time to schedule exterior painting before the seasonal window closes. Fact check: False! For quality house painters, their exterior painting schedules fill up fast. Often, those who wait to schedule their exterior painting end up having to wait until the next year.
Why Do Exterior Painting Schedules Fill up So Early?
In the areas surrounding Washington, D.C., the exterior house painting season generally lasts from May until September, though some projects can sometimes be done earlier or later than those dates. Everyone who wants their home exterior painted needs to fit into that 5-month window. Added to that is the fact that summer thunderstorms are frequent here, and that can cause delays in the schedule of even the most reliable painting companies.
The facts are simple: the weather only permits a certain amount of time for exterior painting each year, so if you want to fit into that time frame, you need to get on the painting schedule early!
How Do I Choose a Local Exterior House Painter?
First, use the resources you have on hand. Check out the online reviews for local painters on sites like Google, Yelp, HomeAdvisor, and Angie's List. Take negative reviews into account, especially if you see a pattern, but don't be turned off by a couple of negative reviews. Generally, there are many satisfies customers who leave no review for every one disgruntled client who leaves a negative one.
Also, talk to people in your area, your neighbors and coworkers, and find out who they have worked with. Ask them who they would (and wouldn't) recommend.
Once you have created a list of potential painters, schedule an exterior painting estimate with each one. As you interact with them, evaluate their customer service, their professionalism, their communication, and their timeliness. Don't just pick the cheapest painting estimate and run with it; a cheap paint job could end up costing you a great deal in long-term headaches.
