Considerations for choosing Escondido House Painters (or any historic house painters)
- Special Needs: Historic homes often have special needs. They are not always in the best shape and they need the most loving care. You want to research Escondido house painters who know what they are doing when it comes to sensitive, historic homes. In fact, the National Park Service, through the Department of the Interior produced a guide to preservation. Make sure you and your painters are familiar with it.
- Color Choice: Historic homes need care in color selection. There are some very common traps and mistakes historic home owners fall into. A home owner will want to lighten up a home that is in desperate need of paint. Instead of choosing a lighter neutral, but historically appropriate color palette, they go either stark white or over the top colorful. Below is an example of one of our customer’s home. It shows exactly what to do when you want to lighten and brighten your home in a good way.
- Quality: When you are repainting your historic home, you need quality of product and quality of workmanship. You need Escondido house painters who keep your home and yard clean during the process and produce unparalleled results. I suggest asking for photos and testimonials. Any contractor or painter who can not provide these is likely one you shouldn’t trust with your lovely historic charmer.
