Things To Consider When Hiring A Painter In Toowoomba

Painting is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to give your home or business a fresh new look. Unless you’re just touching up some walls though a painting project can be time-consuming and daunting for the amateur.

Expectations. Before the painters get started, have a conversation with the contractor about your expectations and goals. That’s the best way to get an accurate estimate and to prevent dissatisfaction with the finished product.
Estimates. Get several estimates from reputable contractors. That way you can compare line items and ask about discrepancies.
References. Any reputable contractor will be happy to give you recent references with all the relevant contact information. It’s important to actually call the references and ask about their level of satisfaction.
Contract/Agreement. Make sure you completely understand the contract you sign, and that the contract is complete. It must outline exactly what is and is not covered.
Guarantee. You should not hire a contractor who is unwilling to guarantee the work he does. Make sure the labor is guaranteed in addition to the paint.
Lead. If your house was built before 1978, you could have lead-based paint issues. You need a contractor who is knowledgeable about safely and completely addressing this important issue.

How Much Do Painters Charge Per Room In Toowoomba?

In Australia, the rate for a standard interior painting job is $40 an hour. That excludes materials and paint. More complicated jobs will run $45 an hour, and small, uncomplicated jobs $35 an hour.

Painting the walls and ceiling of a 12 x 12 room will take about six hours. That’s assuming the walls are in good shape and don’t require filling. Painting windows, doors, and baseboard trim usually takes an additional three hours. You also have to factor in priming and an additional coat of paint on the walls.

For light colours, two coats of paint are usually adequate, but darker colors often require three. If you’re trying to create a unique design on the walls, that will take additional time.

What Is The Best Quality House Paint To Use?

You should not automatically assume that you have to choose the most expensive paint to get the best paint for your job. Many affordable brands are excellent. What’s more important is finding the most appropriate paint for your walls, ceilings, and floors. The team at Toowoomba Painters can help explain this in more detail.

Factors that go into your choice should include:
Suitability for a surface. Latex or acrylic paint gives a consistent finish and is fade resistant. Use it on walls, cabinets in dry areas, and on seldom-used furniture. Oil or water-based alkyd paint is rot resistant and works well for trim, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, and everyday furniture.
No or low VOCs. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemicals found in many water and oil-based paint. They can emit toxins that may cause nausea, headaches, and kidney and liver damage. Look for “Zero VOC” or No VOC” on paint can labels.
Short drying time. Look for water-based paint that dries in an hour and cures within 30 days. Oil-based paint should be dry to the touch in no more than eight hours and cure within a week.

How Long Does It Take To Paint The Exterior Of A House?

Generally speaking, for us at Toowoomba Painters it takes a team of two or three painters three to four days to paint an average size house. An average size house is one to two stories with no more than four bedrooms. Larger homes, three stories with five bedrooms or more, will take five to six days.

A number of factors, in addition to the size of the house, will determine the actual length of time required to complete a job. Painting the exterior of your house can help improve curb appeal as well as valuation.

Weather
Paint has trouble adhering when surfaces are wet. You may not be able to predict whether or not it will rain in the middle of your house painting job, but you can choose to have the job done during the driest and least humid time of the year.

Crew size
Work with your contractor on the turn around time you want to get the job done. That way the contractor will know how big a team is necessary to complete the job to your specifications.

Cleaning
If you’re having the exterior of your home painted, it will probably need to be power cleaned before any painting can begin. If you decide to do the cleaning yourself to save time and money, make sure you allow enough time for the exterior to completely dry before the painters show up.

Woodwork
Painting rotten timber is a waste of time. If your exterior has areas of timber that needs to be replaced, do that before any painting begins. If you have small areas of problem timber, you may be able to fix it yourself with timber filler.

What Is The Difference Between Domestic And Commercial Painting?

Domestic painting encompasses all aspect of household painting ( interior house painting and exterior house painting, whether that be walls, window frames or pergolas, whilst commercial painting is usually on a larger scale to domestic painting, it can involve shops, retail outlets, office buildings to restaurants, schools and more.
