Establish Clear Communication With Your Contractor

Rule number one in home improvement management: be on the same page with your contractor. Figure out the best way to communicate with each other from the start, and schedule regular meetings to discuss progress reports. Find out your company’s point of contact in case you need to express concerns or advise about last-minute change of plans.

Schedule the Job This Fall

Fall is one of the better seasons to tackle an exterior painting or coating project. Considering summer is the wettest time of the year in Louisiana, the weather tends to become relatively more cooperative and predictable when it ends.

Apart from the pleasant weather, fall is also the time when kids go back to school. Children get stressed during home improvement projects because they hate change and want no disruption to their daily routine. If they suddenly can’t play outside because your exterior walls have to be coated, they might throw tantrums. Without them at home during the project, you have one less thing to worry about.

Lastly, scheduling your exterior painting or coating project during fall readies your home just in time for the holidays. Imagine the look on the faces of your guests when they see the impressive curb appeal of your newly coated home.

Declutter the Work Areas

It helps to clear all lawn ornaments, pieces of patio furniture, garden hoses, and other items that may obstruct workers. If there are tree branches close to the walls, getting them trimmed prior to the project can make life easier for the crew.
