If you need interior painting services for your home, you may be wondering if Lowe’s does the work or if you need to call an internal painting service provider. Before making that decision, it’s important to consider both options’ advantages and disadvantages to ensure you choose the best one for your needs. Below are some things to consider regarding whether or not Lowes does interior painting, as well as why you may want to hire an independent service provider instead.
Where can I find paint colors?
Lowe’s makes it easy to find a wide variety of paint colors. You can search by brand, color, name, or number and even visit a showroom to see samples. They have several paint chips you can try on your wall for free. If you want professional advice, their Design Consultants are there to help make sure you get what you want (and need). For example, if you’re considering using a light color on one side of your house and a dark one on another, they might tell you that mixing them will create an odd pattern.
Is there someone that can help me in my home
Even though it is possible to paint your own home, it’s better to leave it up to a professional. That way, you will avoid having to scrub years of paint and grime from every crack in your walls. Painting is also easier when you have someone helping you who knows what they are doing, so that can save you some time. Just be sure that if you hire someone to help with interior painting services for your home, they are going about things healthily and safely. Take care of those floors! Make sure your painter brings drop cloths or plastic sheets down on top of any surfaces they plan on working on so that nothing gets damaged or ruined during their work.
How much does it cost?
The cost of professional painting varies greatly, depending on your location and how big or small your job is. According to HomeAdvisor, prices for interior painting in Los Angeles average around $2,700, though you can pay anywhere from $755 to $7,000 depending on whether you want a single room painted or multiple rooms and exterior work. In Chicago, prices start at around $1,300 for an entire house. And if you live in Washington DC, paint jobs will cost closer to $3,000 than $2,700. For reference, my last apartment in LA was a 500-square-foot studio with one wall that needed painting.
Does Lowes do custom paint?
As we mentioned in our previous discussion, one of the most important things to consider when hiring a contractor for your next paint job is their ability to match existing colors. A pro will consider your preferences and the physical condition of your walls and trim when customizing their estimate. Otherwise, you might end up paying for lots of extra paint or money on new materials. If you don’t like what they come up with, ask them to try again until you’re satisfied. And if you decide not to have something painted, after all, ask if they can provide samples so that you know exactly what it will look like before committing. With so many options, don’t settle for anything less than stellar.
Will Lowes add color to the paint?
The short answer is yes! Lowe’s allows customers to bring in their paint, saving you money. However, if you want them to mix your paint, it will cost an additional $2 a gallon. This fee applies whether you buy an already-mixed color or they create one for you based on your desired color. The only situation where there won’t be an additional charge is if you have them thin out existing paint, that’s still good. Of course, if you purchase new paint at Lowe’s and take it home to add your finishing touches and colors, there are no additional charges beyond what any other customer would pay when buying at retail.
Painting your home can be a big task. Not only is it a lot of work, but it’s also expensive, particularly if you want to hire professionals to do it for you. Sometimes, you may not have the time or energy to paint your home. What are your options? Read on for some pros and cons of hiring painters versus buying paint in bulk at retailers like Lowe’s or Home Depot.
