The next six weeks are an ideal time to give your entertaining spaces an affordable makeover – to update your home in anticipation of a joyous holiday season. A San Diego professional paint job is one of the easiest ways to freshen up your home for family and friends and, you are guaranteed to get the best price of the year from your paint contractor.
Often, if you find the right painting contractor, December pricing can save you 20-30% on all types of San Diego interior paint jobs. Late November through mid-December is a transitional time for most painters who find themselves booking only interior painting projects. As they finish up exterior jobs, this is a perfect time for you to take advantage of their schedule and get some much needed sprucing up done in time for the holidays.
Here are some important tips:
- Have you ever considered giving a fresh paint job to a spouse or loved one for the Holidays? Most paint contractors can give you a quote secretly, you can sign the painting agreement and then either have the area painted before or after the holiday. A fun and unique gift. And you don’t have to spend your winter weekends painting rooms!
- For paint contractors who are busy finishing exteriors, they have open spaces to fill on rainy days. If you can be flexible and allow your contractor to work with you on bad-weather days, you’ll probably see an even greater discount. We have seen HALF OFF when customers are flexible.
- Allow at least a week for the color selection process. Good paint contractors can help you select colors and will allow FREE color try-ons to make your decision easier. Remember, once the color is selected it will be there for a long time, so enjoy your color selection process.
- On that note, be sure the contract states a completion date for all work to be done, including clean-up. Holidays are busy enough, you don’t want any last minute painting touch ups.
- Good contractors will help you move and replace furniture. Although most should have a disclaimer on their contract, removing them from that damage liability, they can be extremely helpful during the supervised heavy-lifting needed to prepare a room for painting.
- Have cabinets and trim painted for a fresh, glossy finish. A fresh, white paint on ceilings will make rooms feel brighter and larger. New colors on walls will be so inviting to your holiday guests and family. Enjoy life, get some COLOR!
A fresh, professional paint job gives your holiday rooms greater depth and a vibrant glow. The most relatively inexpensive by comparison to other home projects, a professional paint job leaves you with plenty of money left over for presents under the tree. Give your family and friends – and yourself! – the gift of a beautiful holiday environment.
Happy Holidays from the Maverick Painting Family!
