Using quality exterior paint over a properly prepared surface will give you years more protection then using an inferior paint over a poorly prepared surface. As a Hoover house painter I have saw many instances where a homeowner was trying to save money and hired the cheapest painter that he could find. By doing this the homeowner is actually not saving any money because they will need to repaint their home again in a couple of years. This is why I always suggest to potential customers to have in writing exactly what work will be performed whenever they receive a bid, including all of the prep work and what type of paint will be used. The homeowner must also keep in mind that now every major paint manufacturer has different lines of paint, from their best quality paint to a much lower quality line. The homeowner should insist on the best quality paint regardless of the brand name and have that in writing before any Hoover painting contractor begins work. These are just a few things to keep in mind when deciding on a Hoover painter to paint your home.
