About Washington, DC Painting Companies

If you want your home to look great quickly, fresh paint inside and out makes a huge impact. The impact can be long-lasting as well: professional paint job can last six to ten years on interior spaces and four to seven years on exterior surfaces. Paint wear on the exterior, though, can be greatly affected by climate and the proximity and of trees, shrubs, and sprinklers. Interior paint jobs can suffer wear and tear in highly trafficked areas of the home. When it’s time to paint again, go with a reputable Washington, DC painter to ensure the fresh, new look is one you’ll love and one that will last.

Painting can definitely be a large undertaking. A proper job requires several steps of preparation by both the contractor and homeowner as well as some cooperative weather conditions. Discuss with the painting company exactly what kind of prep work will be done on their end before the painting begins. Prep work may include sanding or scraping any existing paint that is cracking or peeling, repairing surface blemishes such as nail holes or dents, and pressure washing exterior walls.

Professional painting contractors in metro DC, such as the EBSCO Research Best Pick™ painters listed below, can recommend the best paint for the specific surface and location. Your painter will also know specifics like whether an oil-based or latex primer is the better option—this kind of detailed knowledge will maximize the paint job’s appearance and duration. Some contractors have color consultants on staff as well to help you decide which color combinations will help give your home the look you’ve always wanted for it, inside and out.
