4 Tips to Paint A Home Like a Pro

Did you know that spring is the most popular time for buyers to invest in a home? It’s true! According to data from Zillow, homes listed between mid-March and early April sold about 15 percent faster and for about $4,300 more than their similarly priced competitors listed later in the year. If you’re looking to sell your home this spring, touching up your paint now can help you attract more buyers when you finally decide to list.

Therefore, consider using these four painting tips from our professional painting contractors near Newtown Square to get the perfectly polished look the buyers love!

  • Use caulking wisely. Painter’s caulking is a powerful tool that you can use to seal windows and door frames prior to painting. However, you’ll want to use as little caulk as possible to get the job done, as excessive or bulky caulking can stand out to buyers. Remember to remove old caulking with a putty knife before you begin and choose a caulk that’s moisture resistant for areas like the bathroom and kitchen to prevent mold growth.
  • Move the furniture out. Don’t risk dripping paint on your furniture! Instead of covering furniture with towels while you paint, move it out of the room altogether and replace it only when the room is completely dry. This will help you avoid missing any hidden cracks and spaces.
  • Open a window. Painting in an enclosed space is dangerous and can cause you to inhale harsh chemicals. Wear a painter’s mask while working on the room and ventilate the room as much as possible by opening windows for a few days while the room dries. If you feel lightheaded while painting, leave the room and take a break somewhere where you can sit down and breath fresh air, like an outdoor patio or backyard.
  • Use a primer. All interior walls don’t need priming before you paint. However, walls with a shiny finish, walls that are painted a dark or vibrant color, or walls that were previously painted with an oil-based paint may not hold onto their new color as well. For these types of walls, apply a matte stain-blocking primer first to help your new paint color shine later.
