About Houston Painting Companies

A fresh coat of paint can make a world of difference in the look of a room—or even an entire house. Are you tired of staring at lifeless builder beige walls? Have you noticed the paint on your home’s siding or exterior trim starting to peel and flake? A professional painter can help you add some personality to your walls and make sure the outside of your house stays protected.

Whether your painting needs are aesthetic or purely practical, turn to one of the many reputable Best Pick Houston painters for help.

Houston Painters

Specialty services

Most painters in Houston offer a variety of services beyond standard interior and exterior painting, but you may find that some specialty services are only offered as preparatory work for a painting job. Be sure to ask your contractor for specifics.

Common specialty services include:

  • Carpentry and rotten wood repair or replacement
  • Power washing
  • Wood staining
  • Drywall repair
  • Wallpaper application and removal
  • Wall and ceiling texture repair and removal

Some painting companies offer even more specialized services, such as color consultations, faux finishes, cabinet refinishing, and epoxy floor coatings—just ask!

Painting prep

Correctly preparing the area to be painted is one of the most important steps to a paint job that looks great and lasts for many years. You should always clarify the preparatory steps your painter will take to ensure that you’re both on the same page, but for an interior job, here’s what you can expect:

  • All switch and outlet plates will be removed, as will any wall-mounted light fixtures (if possible).
  • The walls will be cleaned—this is usually done with a degreasing solution.
  • Any imperfections in the walls, such as chipped paint, paint drips, and rough spots, will be sanded and spackled.
  • Old nails, screws, and drywall anchors will be removed and the holes spackled and sanded smooth.

Exterior house painting involves a lot more prep, such as siding and gutter repair, peeling paint removal, and pressure washing. The outside of your house takes a beating year-round, after all, but the pros know how to get it clean and ready for a new coat of paint.

Painting in high heat and humidity

Houston’s high temperatures and humidity levels can make painting—especially exterior work—a bit tricky. Extreme heat can prevent paint from adhering properly to surfaces. When that happens, the end result is usually marred by bubbling and cracking—all the more reason to let the professionals handle your painting needs!

Professional painters in Houston know exactly which paint formulations work best for the warm climate, and they also know how to schedule the job to avoid the hottest part of the day.
