Are you planning to have your newly acquired house painted? Are you in need of a professional painter to do the job for you?

When you finally decide to commit money for that professional Perth painting job, there are certainly important things to expectfrom your contractor. These typically include:

  • Surface Preparation

Expect that the quotation you’ll get from your contractor will include a price for surface preparation. To save on cost, many homeowners prefer to prepare the surface of their homes themselves. However, you can’t ascertain that you’re doing it fully or properly. In such case, many professional painters will not also guarantee their work.

  • Landscaping Cover

Expect your contractor to exercise extreme caution when doing the job by preparing landscaping cover. Without even asking for it, a good painter makes sure that there will be no paint dripping on your landscaping, driveway or any other surface of your property.

  • Well-timed Work


Expect that your contractor will provide you his estimated work timetable. Though it’s only a guide, he should exert effort to stick with the plan. If a force majeure hampers such plan, then there is really nothing you or the contractor can do. However, other than that, any delays incurred is the contractor’s liability and as such, an indication of negligence on his part.

Many homeowners are actually capable of DIY painting their homes but certainly, the results are not quite professional-looking.  They would have saved more consulting with a professional than when buying all the required equipment and materials themselves. They would have also saved their time and efforts.

Bottom line is — you have to collect several quotes before starting a painting project. By this, you’ll know what to expect from each potential painting contractor and lets you make use of your budget wisely. More so, you’ll be able to follow whatever you desire when choosing the best paint colours on your home.
