You want to be sure you choose the right painter for your Edmonton painting project. This will ensure you get the best service for the money you’ve decided to spend on this project. When hiring a painting contractor, be sure to keep the following things in mind:
Experience: Make sure you ask how long the contractor has been in business. This profession often has a high turnover rate and you want to hire someone who knows what they are doing. It is best to hire a contractor with at least two years of experience.
References: You should ask any painter that you are considering hiring to provide you with references. Be sure to call these references and see what past clients have to say about this contractor’s work.
Formal Estimate: Choose a contractor who is willing to give you a formal written estimate. This will put the scope of the project, the materials they plan to use and any prep work into a written contract that will help you understand exactly what they will be doing and for what price.
Cost: With any hired service, price is always a concern, but when it comes to painting, you don’t want to simply pick the cheapest option. Hiring someone with the proper skill, experience and insurance coverage will likely not be the cheapest option you find, but it will ensure you get a quality job.

Touching up a wall is a challenge for professionals and the do-it-yourself crowd alike. First and foremost, use paint from the same can used on the wall. Carefully read and follow the instructions on how to reduce the paint. Next, apply the paint using the same medium it was originally applied with—roller or brush. Try to “feather” the paint from the outside edge of the area you want to touch-up into the centre.
To ensure maximum durability, wait a minimum of 2 weeks before washing freshly painted walls. Always avoid the use of harsh chemicals and abrasives, these can easily damage the paint film. Choose a liquid or dry cleaner and dilute it according to the severity of the dirt or debris on the wall. Test a small amount on an inconspicuous area before applying. Using a sponge or cloth, wash the dirt away without allowing the cleaner time to dry. Rinse thoroughly and repeat as necessary.
