5: Compare Costs with Your Budget
Paint comes in a range of prices. But generally, you do get what you pay for in terms of its coverage and quality.
But to save money, you could consider cheaper paint for rooms that are seldom used such as the basement.
And higher quality paint for your main floor living rooms, hallways and kitchen that see a lot of action in the form of scratches and scrapes from family and friends.
Also, ask your painter what paint he can get discounts for to save you money and also watch for paint sales at local stores. If supplying your own paint helps lower the house painting quote.
6: Promote a Job Well Done
If you have a large network of friends, family, co-workers and neighbours, offer to help the painter.
Get future business for a cheaper house painting quote. Also, let him put a sign on your lawn or door advertising his company for an extended period of time.
If you have lots of friends and followers on any social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, offer to feature his work online to grow his business.
