What does a Painting Contractor Do?
Painting a room is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to transform a living space. Just a change in color or finish can make your walls look brand new. So what happens when a painting contractor paints a room?
The most important part of the process is preparing the room for painting. Furniture is moved away from the walls.
Any outlets, light switches, or cable auxiliary port covers should be removed. Air vents and curtains should also be taken off the walls. While you can tape the edges and trim, professional paint companies can cut in without putting up any tape.
What does it mean to cut in? Before painting the walls the contractor paints all of the edges and corners of the room. They also paint around any outlets or switches since the roller can’t reach some of those smaller spaces.
After cutting in, the painter will paint the rest of the walls. For this they use rollers. If the wall is really big or hard to reach they may use an extension pole.
