Deciding WHEN to invest in your new exterior paint is a big choice! Here’s a look at the pros and cons of waiting until spring, and another budget-friendly option you may not have heard of…
If you were to line up ten painting contractors and then ask how many of them were really worth hiring, our guess is that you would see at least ten hands be raised.
After all, who wouldn’t want to be hired for the job?
While this might be great for those ten painting contractors, it doesn’t exactly help you find the best candidate to meet your house painting needs. Thankfully for you, there are other ways to weed through the prospective painting pros, selecting the one who really deserves your trust.
Ready for the inside scoop?
It’s always fun to score a good deal, right?
Whether it’s something small like a pair of pants that finally went on sale, or maybe an awesome deal on appliances over a holiday weekend, it feels good to come out ahead with a jingle in your pocket.
Sometimes, however, going cheap becomes similar to cutting corners, and delivers long-term frustrations after that initial savings. “You get what you pay for” is an old adage, but it really rings true in many circumstances.
Today, let’s apply this concept (and warning) to the world of interior and exterior house painting. Is more expensive paint worth it, or are you falling for awesome marketing?
Your front door says a lot about your home. For many Nashvillians, a beautiful hardwood entry door is the mark of a well-loved home, a welcoming front porch, and a point of historic pride. Depending on your home’s age and exposure, however, the elements can wreak havoc on the fit and finish of your entry door. If your exterior doors are starting to show some wear, look a little shabby, or hang a little more loosely than you’d like, then it’s time to get to work on refinishing your front door. While it may be tempting to chuck the old door into the trash and buy a replacement, let’s take a moment to consider whether or not that beautiful antique door can be returned to its original glory. While inexpensive options exist, you’ll miss the look and authenticity of the real deal. It’s also worth noting that a new, custom hardwood door can set you back thousands of dollars.
