Everyone wants a nice and pretty house. In most cases, this is not easy, if you don’t know the proper way of doing it. Of course, when it comes to “proper way”, budget is something that is, probably always, the main issue. The very first thing that comes on your mind, when you are trying to make your house prettier, is renovating. But, as you already know, this is the most expensive option. However, there is a great alternative to it. It is simple- painting.
While the painting is usually cheaper than renovating, the final result can be as good and noticeable, especially when it is done using the right colors, technique, and creativity. If you are tight on budget, DIY (slang for “do it yourself”) can be an option, but it is not recommended if you are trying, not just to do simple blank painting, but to add that decorating and creative touch to your painting.
Also the quality is something that is not guaranteed with using this method (if you are not a professional painter yourself). But don’t worry, there is a quite nice solution for this too, which is hiring a professional house painter. Beware, before hiring there are few things that you should about professional house painting.

Speaking of this matter, the first thing you need to know is what makes a house painter be good (professional) house painter? This question is something you should have on your mind to ask your potential painter while choosing which one you will hire:
- Experience- It is very important that the painter is prepared for all sorts of situations. From simple things like knowing the difference between interior and exterior house painting, all the way to know what to do if the wall is damaged or to identify things like rot, and which tool will he use in different situations,
- The difference- As mentioned, you must know when to call an interior painter, and when to call an exterior painter, even if it sounds the same, many professional painters can’t do both (of course, there are painters that can),
- Preparation- This must be done, especially if it is an exterior painting job. For example, before starting to paint, the painter (if he is truly a professional) must know that he should clean the surface, filling gaps, etc… that is the secret to a lasting paint job.
- Brand- Every professional painter has a brand that he prefers to use. You should ask for it, and check the information about it, to make sure that it is a high-quality product,
- Way of working- By this it is considered that your professional painter will do extra clean up, furniture covering, and all sorts of other cleaning services by himself.

The second question that you should consider is, how to find house painters in my area?
There are a few ways to do this. You can type in your Google search “house painters near me”. It will show many different webpages with lists of house painters in your area. Also, you can add the word “recommended”, which will sound “recommended house painters near me”. This will profile your search and show you only those painters that have good ranking and reviews. Trustworthy webpages for these lists are all sites on the first search page such as Home Advisor and Yelp. For example, Yelp will list house painters and you can do an additional filter on that list. This means that you can sort them by price, rating, distance, category… The nice thing about Yelp is that it will show you the most relevant review automatically with the name of the professional painting company (or painter’s name). With this, you can immediately see which painter should you eliminate from choosing.
Another way of doing this is via real-life recommendation. In which someone (your friend, cousin...) from your surrounding will tell you about a professional house painter from your area with who we used to cooperate.
