  • Everything you need to know about finding a Painter

    Whether you want to renovate, repair or build new, painters can help enhance the look of your home. Paint can be used on the interior or exterior of the home and the wide range of paints and paint finishes that are available today means that you are only limited by your imagination. It is the cheapest way of redecorating, so if you’re after a new look without a lot of outlay, then getting your home painted may be the way to go.

    What Painters Do

    Painters may carry out the following tasks:

    Colour consulting: Choosing the colours to use in your home can be one of the most difficult choices to make. HomeFixforsure's painters can help you choose the best colours for your interior or exterior space. They will typically ask questions about your colour preferences and the mood you are trying to achieve, to narrow down the colour palette. We also have interior designers who can help with colour consulting.

    Interiors: Using paint is a great way to revamp the interior of your home. A professional painter will prepare the surface for painting, protect the floors and furniture and apply the paint using the best tools for the job. You can choose to use one colour throughout your home, or combine a few hues for various effects.

    Exteriors: Like the interior, painting the exterior of your home can give your home a boost. Not only that but painting the outside of your home helps protect it against the elements. Your painter will remove existing paint, prepare and prime the exterior surface and apply the paint with your preferences in mind.

    Furniture and woodwork polishing: From time to time, furniture and other wood-based items at your home like teakwood cabinets, staircase railings will need to be maintained so that they stay looking best. A painter can assist by cleaning the wood and applying new stains, oils, varnishes and paints.

    Commercial painting: Just like residential properties, commercial buildings also need to be painted from time to time. Whether it's a shop, school, hospital or office block, commercial painters will create a look to suit your needs and aim to get the work done with minimal disruption to the business.

    Extra care taken by HomeFixforsure Painters

    HomeFixforsure Painters also perform the following tasks in the course of their work:

    • Protecting areas from paint by laying drop sheets
    • Erecting scaffolding necessary to complete job
    • Preparing surfaces including filling holes, sanding, repairing woodwork, removing old paint or wallpaper and sealing surfaces
    • Selecting and preparing paint
    • Using brushes, rollers or spray painting to apply the paint to the surface
    • Cleaning equipment, work areas and any splatters that may have resulted while painting
    • Safely removing lead-based paint
    • Apply waterproofing systems to wet areas

    Things to Consider

    There are some basics to consider when repainting. What is the function of the room/s that will be repainted? What direction does the room face? How big is it? What mood do you want to create? The basic rule is that light colours make a room feel larger and dark colours will make a room feel smaller. When choosing a colour scheme, it is best to stick to one of the following types: monochromatic – different shades of the same colour; harmonious – where similar colours are used; and contrasting – where two or more very different colours are used i.e. black and white.

    Types of Paint

    There are many different types of paint, and what you use will depend on the area to be painted and the kind of conditions that it has to endure. Outdoor areas will need to be painted with a special exterior paint that will be able to handle the harsher conditions.  Interior paints need to suit their purpose. Bathrooms and other wet areas will require a more resistant paint that can stand up to moisture such as a semi-gloss or gloss while living areas can get by with a flat surface. If you have kids or need a paint that is more durable, a wash and wear paint may be a good option.

    When it comes to the interior of the home, there is a vast range of special paint finishes and effects available. Consulting a professional will help you to choose the right look for your home. HomeFixforsure  will offer a colour consultancy service, or you may choose the services of an interior designer.

  • Are you living with problems?

    problems

    A dripping faucet, clogged drain, squeaky door, loose hinges, seepage in the roof, dull faded walls and the list goes on. Well, most people have some or other thing at home that needs a repair. One interesting fact about home repairs is that people spend more time and energy to find the repair person than what the repair person requires to do the task. It takes multiple phone calls to friends, friends of friends and neighbours to get the contact of  a technician who can do the repair. More often, the technician does not show up on time. The biggest problem is that there is no price fixed across the construction industry for any work - small or big. So, it goes without saying that in the busy lifestyle, each one of us get into the habit of living with these problems.

    Question yourself. If getting right technician to fix repairs at your home can be achieved by spending a few seconds on your phone, would you still live with problems? If, someone offers you a budget-friendly fixed pricing model for all kinds of home repairs, renovation needs and construction works, would you want to give it a try? Then, take the action today.
