A Fresh Look

One thing that was a must when we moved into our new home was that it had to be painted from top to bottom. We love to do most of our renovation projects our self but we only had a couple of days between our closing date and when our belongings arrived from storage. We had to go with a professional painter to get the job done quickly and still have a quality job. One of the challenges was to get a trustworthy Atlanta Painter to come and do the job for us when we were not from the area and didn't really know anyone to ask. I felt it was important to have meetings with the prospective companies before I agreed to working with anyone. After talking to a couple of local companies it was time to bring them out to the new house. One company stood out from the rest as they brought proof of their insurance and license. Asking to see pictures of their work and having them walk through the house was a good idea because we were able to come up with a great color scheme together and decide on a reasonable price. The final step was negotiating out the contract including the type of paint and materials that would be used, the summary of the job to be done and the contact information for us and the company. It was a rush to get into our house but the painting was done on time, on budget and with the quality we expected. I can certainly tell you one thing it was so much easier to not have to worry about all the painting and just focusing on the other hundred things we needed to do to get ready for the move
