As a homeowner, it is usually enough to take on one major project at a time. However, even though you would have to save up more money and wait longer, you can enjoy a few major benefits by taking on multiple projects at the same time. If you want to paint the inside and outside of your home, you can also take advantage of this opportunity to replace the windows throughout your home. You will find that the steps required to get ready for painting are also aligned with what you need to do to install new windows.
Removing Things on the Wall
When you have professionals put in windows, you have to remove nearby items on the wall. Since you have to do this throughout the entire home, you may end up taking down most things naturally. To prepare for painting, all you have to do is take down the remaining items and you are ready to go.
Cleaning the Exterior
One of the most important things that you should do before painting your home is cleaning the exterior walls and windows. It is necessary for paint to last a long time, and the best way to do this is pressure washing. You can easily rent your own machine and get the outside ready for a deep cleaning.
It is important to follow steps such as removing things in your way and covering or moving items that could get damaged. If you have old paint that is already chipping off, you can finish the job with a powerful spray. A clean exterior will get the house ready for both painting and installing windows.
Rearranging the Inside
Windows range from small to large and they span all throughout your house, so you need to provide professionals with a clear path that will keep them from putting your windows or the house at risk. Painters will need even more room than window installers, so you can take the initial preparation a step further by removing all items and furniture from the walls and into the center of each room. Another option is to move furniture from one room to another when painters take care of one room at a time.
When you make the decision to save up money until you can get a paint job for both the inside and outside and get new windows at or around the same time, you can save a lot of time and money.
