6 Ways to Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays

Waly Precision Remodeling BradentonHappy Holidays! With all the parties and dinners going on this time of year, you may be expecting friends, family, or coworkers to visit your home. Naturally, you’ll want your home to look as clean and beautiful as possible. Here are a few ways to spruce up your home for the holidays, so you can dazzle your guests!

1. Get a pressure wash done. Pressure washing is an easy way to clean and brighten your patio, lanai, deck, front porch, and similar exterior areas. Pressure washing is easy to do (or hire a pro to handle it), it’s inexpensive, and it’s good to have done every year or two.

2. Add a new coat of paint to your interior walls. Are your interior walls looking blah? It may time to repaint them. Waly Precision Painting and Remodeling recommends repainting interior walls every three to five years, although that recommendation can vary. Consider adding a bold splash of color if your neutral color isn’t cutting it for you anymore. Read our previous blog on color trends for some modern, attractive ideas.

3. Repaint the exterior. Just like you may look at your interior walls and say, “Meh,” you also might need a fresh new look for your exterior. Exterior paint jobs are an excellent time to get a pressure wash done, fix any cracks, and use the same or perhaps a new exterior color. We’d love to tell you about the many paint options available. Just contact us for ideas.

4. Get your kitchen cabinets painted. Just like there are some wall colors that are popular at any given time, kitchen cabinets also have colors that can go in or out of style. Perhaps you want to modernize your cabinets, or you’re just tired of the current color. Changing the cabinets could make you feel like you’ve gotten your whole kitchen remodeled–without the price tag!

5. Add new flooring. If you’re tired of carpeting, there are lots of potential new flooring options to consider that are easy to clean. For example, vinyl plank is popular, relatively inexpensive, and can provide a variety of looks, from farmhouse rustic to modern. If a flooring update for your whole house is too much, then you can get it done in a room or two.

6. Update your entry. Have you been taking your entryway for granted? If so, you’re not alone. It’s easy to ignore this workhorse area of our home. However, adding a fresh coat of paint to the entry and adding a piece of furniture for keys, wallets, and pursess could provide just the new look you want. It’ll be the first thing guests see in your home, and it could wow them!

Here’s Why You Should Have Your Home Pressure Washed Regularly

Waly Precision Remodeling Pressure Washed

A pressure wash is an affordable way to get rid of dust, debris, and other build up around your home. If you’re looking to refresh your home’s appearance, perhaps as part of regular maintenance or to prep for a home sale, a pressure wash is an easy first step. Pressure washing also helps to maintain your paint longer.

During a pressure wash, Waly Precision Remodeling will provide an estimate for your home’s pressure wash. The price can vary widely based on the size of your home. A pressure wash of a small part of the home may only be around $100, while, a large home pressure wash could cost a few hundred dollars.

We often are asked how often homes in the Bradenton and Sarasota area should be pressure washed. Although once a year is a good rule of thumb, the truth is, there’s no uniform answer that applies to all homeowners. In our more humid environment in Florida, there tends to be more frequent buildup of mold and mildew. Heavy rains during rainy season can lead to more dirt and debris as well as leaves. If your home is surrounded by trees, it will likely accumulate dirt and debris faster. Bottom line: If you think your home exterior is dirty enough to need a pressure wash, you’re probably right!

How to Prepare Your Home Before Painters Arrive

Congratulations! You’ve decided to get your home in Bradenton or Sarasota repainted. We know that takes a commitment, not to mention extra expense and time. However, once the work is done, you’ll home will have a fresh look to enjoy.

To maximize what house painters like Waly Precision Painting and Remodeling can do for you, make sure to do some advance planning. Here are a few tips we like to offer to our Bradenton, Sarasota, and Anna Maria Island clients before we show up and get to work on interior or exterior painting.

  1. Consider paint colors. Do you want to use the exact same color you have now, or something drastically different? That can make a big difference with the cost, so let us know. That way, we can provide the most accurate estimate. We always appreciate customers who do their research in advance regarding colors and paint type. Some even know exactly what color they want and from what paint manufacturer. That said, don’t worry if you’re not ready with a firm idea when we show up. We’re happy to provide our feedback on a good match for your home and obtain some paint samples. One consideration: It sometimes can be hard to match a color exactly, especially if your previous paint job is older or if you don’t know the paint name or manufacturer. Be prepared for some flexibility in those situations.
  2. Know that not all paint estimates are the same. We often will quote for clients a price with the use of medium-quality versus higher-quality paint. Both are great choices, but some clients may opt for higher-quality. For instance, those living near the beach who are having exterior paintwork done often choose higher quality to help protect their home against the elements. Higher-quality paint also can last longer.
  3. Take a close look at your walls. If you have any areas that may need minor repair, be sure to point them out so we can handle them while we’re working. Although we may spot them along the way, it’s always a big help if you show us as well, so we can mark them for our painters.
  4. Get Fido comfortable in a temporary space. When we’re ready to come paint, keep your hounds in a safe area so they can chew on bones and go potty without us stepping in their way. (Bradenton and Sarasota have some great doggy daycare facilities, too.) If you have cats that like to hide or escape, let us know in advance so we can be extra cautious.
  5. Let us handle the heavy lifting. We’re more than happy to move furniture and wall hangings when we arrive (we’ll also use plastic covers/drop cloths when necessary). That said, it can be a time-saver if you move items before we show up. Some customers prefer to move treasured items on their own.
  6. Got questions on where we are in the process? Just ask! One common situation with our work is a client asking why we haven’t done a certain part of the job when in actuality, we’re not at that step yet. The painting process takes some patience. Let us handle the details so we can present you with a beautiful completed job.For Quality and Precision, Call Waly Precision Painting and Remodeling

5 Reasons to Have Your Bradenton or Sarasota Home Repainted

Waly Precision Remodeling Home Repainted

 

Take a look around your house right now. Is it in need of makeover? If you think that updating your home means spending a lot of money for a top-to-bottom new look, think again. One easy start is to have your home repainted. Here are some of the top reasons to have your home interior or exterior repainted.

  1. You’ll add to your home’s value. Repainting your home can potentially make your house worth more if you are going to sell it. If you are putting your home up for sale, it also gives your home an edge over competing homes that have a worn-out look versus something fresh.
  2. You can easily update your home’s style. Let’s say your home color(s) is something that was popular five or ten years ago but not much right now. A repaint is an easy way to modernize your home’s look.
  3. It’s cleaner. A fresh paint job gets rid of wall staining and odors that may hang around with older paint work. It helps you home both smell and look better.
  4. It gives you an ideal time to address wall repairs. If you need minor (or even major) drywall work, an ideal time to get that done is during a repaint. That way, your home is in even better shape, whether you’ll stay in for years to come or if you plan to put it on the market. Your painting company can make recommendations about drywall and related repairs that your home may need.
  5. Sometimes, it’s just time to repaint. An exterior repaint is generally recommended every 10 years (sometimes more frequently depending on the climate), and exterior walls should be repainted every three to seven years, depending on how dirty your home can get. When you reach that point where you know you’d feel better about your home with a paint refresh, give us a call.
