Painting - Johnson City Homes

You've perhaps done some painting over the years in your home. Whether you've done the paint process yourself, or have had a professional do the job, have you ever considered the fact that paint, is considered to be the clothes of your house? We've composed some tips to help you pick the right ensembles, and wrinkle free choices when the need for a paint refresher arises:


At the Shields Team, we recommend getting a consultation from a certified paint professional. Learn what types of paint are best for specific applications. Home centers are loaded with every option you can imagine in their paint department, and usually have an expert who may even be brand-trained to consult with you on the best performance choices. A professional should be able to advise on any brand, and on items like specified life on interior/exterior surfaces, etc. 


In our tech forward day, some paint brands offer apps for smart devices that will allow you to take a photo of the room or surface and then overlay color choices. A great tool to try, before you buy. One such app is offered by Sherwin Williams, and is called the ColorSnap® Visualizer. The app is a color-matching app that captures colors from your surroundings and matches them to Sherwin-Williams paint colors, is now a FREE download on iPhone and Android devices. Check the Play and App Stores to download. 


For even more tips, call us! One of our qualified agents would love an opportunity to bring a fresh eye to your home, and assist with recommendations on painting to optimize your home's appearance and appeal. If you're planning a home improvement project to get your house ready to sell, why not get a free estimate of your home's value? You can do that instantly here: What's My Home Worth?


We're just a phone call away at (423) 433-6517, and are available in our office for a free consultation within the Keller Williams Realty office at 1033 Hamilton Place in Johnson City. Let us help choose your home's new clothes!
