Top House Painters related questions

How long it takes to paint your house depends on several factors, including the size of your home, how many rooms or areas need painting, and the type of painting work required. In general, painting an entire house from top to bottom can take anywhere between three to five days. The exact time frame will boil down to the condition of your walls, ceilings, and other surfaces, as well as weather conditions in case there's exterior painting involved.

House painters can monitor the weather forecast before and on the day of your painting project. It's always best to avoid painting work during rainy or even dry and sunny days. However, in case it suddenly rains, or there's excessive humidity in the middle of the painting job, house painters can pause the painting work and continue as soon as weather conditions improve.

The best time to repaint your home is when the exterior paint is already starting to fade. Typical home painting work lasts between five to ten years, depending on local climate and weather conditions and the quality of the paint used. Other signs to look out for include cracks, peels, chips, and flaking paint. If not repaired right away, these issues can lead to further trouble down the road.

One coat of paint is generally adequate. Applying more coats can lead to build up and cause peeling and cracking paint over time. However, if you're painting high-traffic areas such as kitchen walls or bathroom tile floors, then applying a maximum of two coats is generally acceptable. Also, take note that the higher the quality of paint, the fewer coats or layers you need.

There are many ways to prepare beforehand for your house painting job. Take out any bulky appliances, wall hangings, and other fragile furniture items, so they are safely out of the way. You can vacuum or sweep away any loose fur or hair, especially if you have dogs or pets around. You can also remove any minor stains on your baseboards gently with a damp cloth.

First, check if the house painter has the relevant experience for the specific painting work you need. Have they painted homes before or are all their previous projects restricted to commercial properties? You can ask them about their past work and if they can meet your deadline if you have any. On Airtasker, you can compare ratings and read reviews so you can make sure you're hiring someone who's a brilliant fit for the job.

What do house painting services include?

House painting services involve a range of tasks to transform both the interiors and exteriors of your home. Expert house painters can walk you through the entire painting process–from colour consultation and surface preparation to paint application. Skip the headache of trying to do the job yourself, and let locals on Airtasker help you with any home painting service you may need, including:

Crown moulding and trim painting

Crown moulding can add a stylish touch to any area of your home. Often used on doors, windows, ceilings, or floors, this type of trim serves as a decorative element and can cover gaps or cracks in ceilings, walls, and other corners. Whether you're updating your entire living room or simply repainting the trim, local house painters can get the job done. 

Besides fixing your trim and mouldings, maybe you're also looking for a top-rated designer to enhance your interior space? From drawing up a layout plan to helping you choose furniture, interior designers on Airtasker can help bring your indoor space back to life.

Deck and fence painting

Make your home stand out by switching up the look of your deck, fence, or patio. When you book a home painter via Airtasker, you get to work with specialists who can readily paint your outdoor fixtures and make them look great all year round. They can also guide you in choosing and applying the right stain to protect your decks and fences from weather damage.

Since there's nothing better than basking in the sun, how about finding a contractor to renovate your outdated deck or patio? Once you transform your outdoor area into a relaxing retreat, get someone to decorate your space, so you can happily entertain friends and host family celebrations!

Garage and basement painting

Your garage and basement are often overlooked areas of your home. Since they're usually used as a storage solution, most tend to dismiss their general upkeep which shouldn't be the case! Skilled home painters on Airtasker can help keep your garage or basement well-maintained not only for aesthetics but also for you and your family's safety. Whether it's walls, ceilings, or floors, painting experts can give a fresh, new look to an often unnoticed space in your home.

Our platform also lets you book a removalist to take out old, damaged, or unwanted items from your house. This way, you can reclaim your space without even having to lift a finger!

Door and furniture painting

Painting your doors and furniture is one of the fastest and easiest ways to update the look of your home. Whether you want to add a pop of colour to your front door or need help concealing stains in your kitchen table, no job is too big or small for residential home painting experts on Airtasker. 

Get more things done by hiring a cleaner to tidy up your house! They can vacuum your carpets, scrub your floors, and do an array of other tasks so that you can enjoy a safe, healthy, and beautiful home.
