Mistake 1: Skipping Painting Prep

Prep work is a super common step in which people misstep. Avoid this painting mistake by removing outlet and switch plate covers, taping edges, and covering furniture. It may feel tedious, so it’s understandable that you’d want to skip some or all of the steps. It makes a huge difference in how the final product looks, though, so we always prep the space thoroughly.

Mistake 2: Using the Wrong Tape

Even though painter’s tape is more pricey than some other options, it’s truly the best choice for a painting project. Using the wrong kind of tape is a big painting mistake to avoid. Proper painter’s tape won’t deface the existing paint and it will give you the cleanest edges possible. Something we are proud of is that we use high quality materials on for all of our painting clients.

Mistake 3: Buying Too Little Paint

It’s not easy to estimate how much paint your project requires. Though home improvement store employees are able to give a rough estimate, it really takes practice to estimate a job properly. Thankfully with our expertise and experience, we have a system to accurately purchase the amount of paint necessary to fulfill our clients’ needs so we avoid this painting mistake.
