When we talk about exterior house maintenance, we are talking about preventative maintenance and identifying problems before they go overboard. Look at the exterior of your house regularly to watch any signs of cracks, wear, and tear. Things to watch out for include insects or rodent infestation, rot, dampness, rodent, and mold.
It’s recommended to put aside 1% of the purchase price of your home annually to cover future repairs, including painting. To save on painting costs, consider these tips: Only paint accent walls to change the look of a room at a fraction of the cost. Do the prep work yourself, such as moving furniture, dusting and cleaning the walls, removing outlet covers, and laying drop cloths. Do the cleanup yourself, such as removing the drop cloths, and moving everything back into place. Combine multiple painting projects at once to get a bulk rate discount. Let contractors buy the paint since they get it cheaper and typically stick to high-quality paints that last longer.
One room or the whole house? Applying one coat in one room is a reasonable DIY Saturday project (especially if you have help and a frosty beverage). If you multiply the time spent moving furniture, prepping walls and sanding old trim by the number of rooms in the house, you might want to hire folks in painter’s overalls.
It is also important to know the season your newly-acquired home was painted since the weather condition when your house was painted can change how well the paint dried.
If after evaluating the above factors you still feel confident, then you can go the DIY way and paint your house exterior. Ensure not to take shortcuts because in the end, your home is probably your most valued investment, and thus it is good to give it your best.
*Estimated cost to hire a professional painter. Paint needed based on 2 coats at 400 SF per gallon.
In both bedrooms there were holes knocked in the walls by the door handles (easily avoided with a $1 doorstop.) The holes were too big to patch with just spackle, so I got a couple of hole patches. They are sold near the spackles in your home improvement store. The directions are easy to follow, and they work! After paint, you wouldn’t know there once were big ol’ ugly holes. We used spackle to cover nail holes, minor cracks, and imperfections throughout the house. I tried a lot of different spackles in this house. My favorite one for minor repairs is Fast N Final. It applies easily, dries in a few minutes, and doesn’t require a whole lot of sanding.
The painters themselves were so pleasant to work with. It's a family business, so the number of people working on any day varies, but at least 3 men were onsite at any time. They work quietly between 8:30 and 5, and they work through the weekend, even Sunday, to complete the job. Exterior painting on my 1600+ sq ft home took about 5 days.

The prep work is meticulous, they carefully protect surfaces not meant to be painted, including my beautiful Cordyline plants that touch the wall. They even taped plastic over my cement floor backyard. The quality of the work is great, I don't see any flaws in the paint job, and the paint is quick drying with no overwhelming paint smell. They fixed any minor flaws with the surfaces, applying patches and re-stuccoing as needed. My house looks new again!
I am very pleased with this hire and I highly recommend them. I will contact them again when I need interior repainting.
Sooner or later it will make a difference if the paint was thinned, cheap paint was used, the surface was not repaired and cleaned first.

Call us biased, but we think old homes deserve a little respect when it comes to choosing paint colors for both the interiors and exterior. This is not to say that you must stick with that avocado green in your vintage bathroom. But we do think that older homes retain more of their character and charm when colors in keeping with the home’s era are used.
“Our house is 15 years old and was in dire need of some updating. We found Platinum Painting through Angie's List. We had almost the entire interior of our house painted including closets, pantry, interior doors, front and back doors along with trim work around the garage doors that they repaired and painted and then painted the garage doors as well. Chris Adkins was our project manager with Platinum and we could not have asked for anyone more professional and knowledgeable.” Angie N. Arlington, TX
