In most cases, a property’s exterior should be repainted once every 5 to 10 years. When the outside of a home is repainted, it can instantly revitalise its appearance while also protecting the building’s structure from the elements.

That said, a major part of ensuring the best results often involves finding the right person for the job. Sometimes, homeowners may not know what services to look for in their area to ensure they find reliable and skilled exterior painters.

So, in this guide, we’ll explore the key steps required and explain how you can use our highly useful services to find exterior painters near you. Let’s dive in!

Defining Painting Requirements

To get things started, you’ll want to figure out what your exterior painting requirements are. Along with considering what material your home’s exterior is made of, you’ll also need to think about what paint type and colour you’d like and the scope of the project (e.g. you may just want one wall painted, or you may be looking to have every exterior wall on your home painted).

Other factors that may affect the paint job needed can include the architectural style of your property, weather conditions and ease of access.

Of course, if you’re unsure about any aspects of the work needed, you can always consult with the exterior painter to figure out the finer details.

Utilising MyJobQuote’s Online Directories

You’ll be pleased to know that you can use MyJobQuote to find local exterior painting professionals with ease. One way is by utilising our online local painter directory.

Through this directory, you can compare a range of exterior painting services in your area. More specifically, it can give you a chance to look at the ratings, reviews and portfolios of different contractors/companies to figure out who might be right for the job.

Verifying Service Provider Qualifications

When considering exterior painters, you’ll also want to look at their experience and any qualifications they might have. That said, painters do not generally need qualifications, with their experience levels and prior work being better markers of their quality and reliability, although qualifications are certainly a plus.

Asking to see their previous work can help ensure that you are opting for someone who provides high-quality workmanship. You may even want to ask whether they have any industry recognition, too.

Engagement and Communication

Communication is key, from start to finish, to ensure the outcome you’re looking for. Before getting started, you’ll want to discuss their availability and the potential project timeline, paint choices and any particular requirements related to the painting project in question (e.g. issues with accessing one of your walls).

When it comes to their availability and proposed timeline, this may be a deal breaker if they do not offer timing that works for you. In this case, you’ll want to reach out to your second and third-preference exterior painters to check their availability and project timeline estimates.
