Like most home improvement projects, house painting or coating can be stressful without some preparation. You have to consider every aspect, from finalizing the design and colors to choosing the right New Orleans home improvement contractor. To make your preparations easier, here’s a list of things you should prepare for.
Finalize the Color Scheme in Advance
One of the first things you should plan is the color scheme, unless you’re keeping it the same as the original. There are several tools that you can use to mix and match color combinations. Online apps let you manipulate a digital model of your home and virtually try on different color combinations.
Clear Everyone’s Schedules
You likely won’t be able to move around much while the installation is ongoing. Once you have picked an installation date, make sure everyone in the household is amenable to it. If you have children and/or pets, have them spend the day with relatives or friends.
Review All the Paperwork before Signing Anything
When you’ve chosen your contractor, make sure you are both on the same page. Ask all relevant points, have parts explained if you don’t understand it, and make sure you’re happy with the plan. As a trusted coating company in Covington, Louisiana, Mid South Coatings will be happy to listen to your needs and answer any questions you may have.
Clear the Exterior
While our 10-step installation process takes care of the small details, you can help make the project easier by removing anything that you don’t want to get accidentally damaged. Some examples include ornamentation, string lights, or hanging plants.
Part of our preparations include covering surrounding shrubbery and landscaping. It would also help if you can get surrounding trees trimmed beforehand. Having your trees trimmed also has the benefit of preventing leaves, twigs, and small critters from getting onto your roof.
In addition to these preparation steps, our consultants can also help you with planning to ensure that your exterior coating in Lafayette, Louisiana is stress-free.
