No one wants to spend their money on unnecessary things and everyone tries to save wherever possible. Whether you pay for painting services or dive into painting yourself, the whole process will be preceded by some preparation. In some cases, it will even be necessary to get help from experts. Finding the balance between top quality and low price can seem like a real challenge. So let's see together what precedes the newly painted walls and where it is possible to save some money.
Cleaning even before painting?
Even if it seems slightly bizarre, the opposite is true — you have to clean up before painting. And thoroughly. First of all, start with the furniture. You can temporarily move it to other rooms, but simply moving it away from the walls and stacking it in the middle of the room will suffice. Everything that remains in the room must be covered. And even the floor! All you have to do is get pieces of cardboard and some protective film and you'll protect your furniture (and your wallet) from possible destruction.
However, moving can complicate the whole process, not only because of the time it takes, but also simply because in some cases the furniture is heavy or you simply don't have something at hand to properly cover the furniture and protect it from paint. Some painters offer these services. However, they often charge enormous prices for them. At Adam, we decided to change that. We want to make painting easier for you. Our painters will therefore be happy to help you with moving and covering furniture. And you can hardly tell the difference in the final price.
It is usual, that after removing the furniture, a layer of dust and cobwebs appears, which were not visible behind the furniture and were not so easily accessible. It is advisable to get rid of them. Fortunately, this does not take as much time and energy as the previous furniture move. And once you're done, you can pop over to your favorite restaurant for a drink. You need to reward yourself!
It's not enough to just paint dirty walls
If you're expecting a new paint job to fix everything, you're wrong. The walls need to be taken care of. Especially those that are older and have a layer of previous paint or old wallpaper need special care. It is necessary to thoroughly scrape the walls and remove previous coatings. In some cases, you will have to fill small cracks and deal with various irregularities. In short, the goal is to achieve as flat a base as possible so that the paint can be applied. If you have large cracks in the walls in your apartment, it is better to leave the repair work to the experts. But if the cracks are not that big and you decide to fix them yourself, expect additional expenses in the form of tools such as spatulas, trowels, and then of course the putty itself, which is used to fill these holes.
The necessary covering of small scratches is usually included in the price of ordinary painting work. However, in the case of larger holes, it is important to have high-quality and experienced painters who will carry out the work. Otherwise, cracks may reappear after a few days or weeks. At Adam, we are perfectly prepared for these jobs and any repairs are not a problem. Just give us a call - the painter can be at your place tomorrow and he will do all the work with quality and cheaply.
Painting rooms can be pretty stressful, especially if you live in a small apartment. A 3 bedroom flat can suddenly become a stacked 1 bedroom. And we're not even talking about the painting process itself. When you paint with your own hands, it is necessary to buy all the tools and utensils and, of course, to choose a suitable color. However, sometimes it is difficult to order painters and painting companies because they are often very busy. In this, however, Adam will significantly facilitate your work, where you yourself can choose the date and time of painting, according to your preferences. We don't want to add to your worries, on the contrary, we only want the top quality for you and save your time and money
So now it's just up to you to make the decision. If you order a painter, you can go to a cottage for a few days so you don't have to worry about not being able to move into your apartment. It is much better to paint when you are not physically present. With peace of mind, you can sip wine and grill while someone else does the hard work for you and you arrive at the finished product.
If, on the other hand, you paint alone, invite your friends to work and make it a pleasant event. The boring painting will thus become fun for everyone, and you will not only be left with a beautifully painted room, but also unforgettable memories.
