FAQ- I want to paint my house… now what?

You have come to the right place! We at AJ Blunt want to arm you before you make the leap to either trying DIY or booking a professional paint company. We are sure you have some questions that will most likely spring to your mind so here is a short but sweet FAQ when it comes to booking a painting company.

What things should I look for when hiring a painting company?

There are many things to consider however a good sign that you are dealing with a reputable company is that they are Dulux AccreditedDulux Accredited is a loyalty-based program offered to selected professional painters who fulfil strict professional criteria. The program aims to recognise painters in the industry who demonstrate high levels of workmanship and pride themselves on their professionalism, customer service and reliability. Other checks would be that they are licensed, insured, experienced with good reviews behind them. We understand that choosing people to come in to your home and do a good job on your project is a big deal. Rest assured if you pick AJ Blunt, you are guaranteed to have reliable, trustworthy and friendly painters help you create your vision.

What is the difference between getting a trade or doing it myself? It can’t be that hard can it?!

We know how homeowners are very enthusiastic when it comes to carrying out a home improvement in their home. It is entirely possible to paint a house by yourself however you need to buy the right tools, materials and paint.  Even though many hardware stores advertise DIY painting, there is a noticeable difference between the two. Naturally we are biased however from years of experience we have seen many people try to paint their own house only to find they either have prepped properly, it’s a bigger surface then they thought and is taking a long time to get through it or cheap materials have caused an average quality job. This is not say we don’t understand why people do not DIY – we do! – however these points should be considered. A sloppy job that is not durable will require maintenance in the future costing more money in the long run.

Do I have to be there while your crew works?

No, many of our clients run usual work and life errands and we are busy painting. We are licensed and insured so you have nothing to work about.

Why are the quote prices so different? Some are high and some are low?!

There are many factors when it comes to the pricing of a job including the level of thoroughness, attention to detail, quality and time. It can also depend of the preparation of the job which is dependent on the state of the wall or surface to be painting. As with most industries, you pay for what you get. We also choose only the highest quality paint in order to provide a top class quality job. Our promise to you is a range of house painting ideas and personalised house painting solutions to meet all of your requirements. With over 35 years experience in house painting, we are the trusted choice.
