HOAs & Painting Your House

wpainting 0 Comments

(Omaha, NEBRASKA )  —  The advantage. Homeowner’s Associations place rules on homeowners with the intention of protecting property values and maintaining aesthetic consistency. The disadvantage. HOA restrictions impose the will of the bureaucracy upon a homeowner, setting standards including the color you’re allowed to paint your home.image-small-covenants-and-hoas-omaha-painting-company

If you live in Omaha, and have an active homeowner’s association, from our experience as a long-time Omaha painting company, you’ll want to check your neighborhood covenants and by-laws before you hire a painter for exterior work. Some HOAs require prior approval of the paint you choose, while others want you to hire an HOA-approved painting company.  If you desire a different color, like a pumpkin orange shade, you may have to go through the approved channels, submit paint swatches and so on. Most HOAs typically require you to paint your home a  neutral shade.

Worst case scenario. If you ignore the HOA approval process in an active neighborhood, and a neighbor complains, then the HOA can force you to comply, place a lien on your property, fine you, and take you to court.

Thankfully, most HOAs don’t care about what color you paint indoors. Many appear to be reasonable if you want a different exterior color. From our experience, if you’re getting ready to hire a painter for exterior work, we recommend you read your covenants to learn what is, and what is not acceptable color-wise. Then call us. Wyman Painting has dealt with HOAs for 25+ years in Omaha.

Chris Wyman started his painting company in 1989 after spending a long-time as a Pepsi-Cola salesman. He wanted a challenge, and had the entrepreneurial bug. But first he needed to get experience. So, he went to work for an Omaha painting company where he learned the A, B, C’s of professional painting.

“My friend said I’d really enjoy painting, and he was right,” said Chris.

That experience and natural knack for painting, deck and fence staining, drywall work, and power washing led him to embark on his own and launch Wyman Painting™ in 1989. Several years ago, his son Brandon learned the ropes, and remains a valuable member of the Wyman Painting Omaha team!

Is Interior Painting a Bad Idea In Winter?

wpainting 0 Comments

Of all times of the year, winter may be one of the best seasons for homeowners to embark on an – interior painting project.  “Here in Omaha, as long as your thermostat is set above 60 F, you’re good to go! said Chris Wyman, owner of one of Omaha’s top rated painting companies. The veteran painter also points out that turning up the heat to 65 or 70F is a good rule of thumb 24 hours before the painting job begins, taking into account that wall temperatures may be colder than the air.

Of course, if you hire a reputable painter, he or she will handle these details, and only use good quality paint while following manufacturer recommendations. 🙂

Will Paint Dry Okay In Winter?

Good news here. Latex acrylic paints tend to dry faster and adhere better during the winter months. As for winter-time humidity, it is typically moderate or lower compared to summer. Here’s how it works. The less moisture in the air, the quicker the paint dries. So yes, paint dries just fine in the winter.

Painters Schedules More Flexible

Another key reason to schedule interior painting December – February is that you’re painter may be available – sooner – during cold weather. Fact is. Fewer homeowners tend to think about home improvement projects during cold months. That means, scheduling an interior paint job in the winter gives you more flexibility in a painter’s schedule. Reminder. Once March arrives & temps rise, the residential/commercial painting industry heats up, and stays busy through October, typically.

So this brings us back to our original question. Is it okay to paint interiors in the winter? It definitely is provided the temperature of the air and walls inside your home remain consistent with the paint manufacturer’s recommendation, and humidity levels are low to moderate. If you hire a reputable painter, he or she will handle the details for you.

Wyman Painting specializes in interior painting during winter months. When you hire the Wyman team, rest assured the job gets done only in the right conditions with a handsome result!

How to Hire a House Painter

How to Hire House Painter Guide

Before you Google Omaha house painter, you’ll want to know what homeowners should look for when hiring a painting contractor. Here at Wyman Painting, we have put together some good tips on helping you make the right choice. Yes. No worries. You can get a professional quality paint job at an affordable price by someone you trust, provided you ask the right questions. Here are some tips we recommend to choose the right painter.

Tip#1: Make Sure Painter is Insured

The first sign of a trustworthy painter is that he or she is insured! Be aware that there are a lot of uninsured painters working in the field. If you make the mistake of hiring one, you assume ALL the RISK! Do not be shy to ask for proof of liability insurance or a copy of it so you can call and verify.

omaha nebraska painting company servicesTip #2: Obtain Quality References

Ask the painter to give you a few quality references from past satisfied customers. Then, contact them to verify the quality of the work. All you need to ask of them is if they were happy with the painter’s quality of work, how they left the job and their character. You can also view the painting company’s website for testimonials.

Tip #3: Get a Couple Estimates

It’s always smart to run references looking for quality work proof rather than rely on price alone when hiring a painter. Remember, it does not always mean that you will receive a higher quality paint job, the more you pay. Likewise, if a painter gives you a low bid, this painter may not be the right choice. You’ll want to look into how long they’ve been in business and so on.

Tip #4: How Estimate Process Should Work

We advise you to stay away from painters who eyeball a a job and write a price on the back of a business card or scrap paper. We’ve heard horror stories about painters who did just that; they get half way through the job and the painter mentions it’s going to cost more and take longer than expected. Get a written estimate, and an estimate by email is fine.

Tip#5: Discuss Type of Paint to be Used

Professional painters know the best type of paint brands out there. You should communicate with your painter letting them know you want high quality paint products used. Beware of the painters who talk about top quality paint, then buy contractor-grade products because it is less expensive.

Tip# 6: How Deposits Should be Handled

It is standard industry practice to be asked to give a 20-50% deposit before a painting job starts. Not all painters ask for a deposit, but don’t be surprised if they do. In many cases, the deposit asked is to cover the cost of materials needed to do the job. Stay away from painters who ask for a large deposit up front – a good rule of thumb.

Tip#7: Choose Painter with Experience

There are many people in the field who call themselves painters, but who are not professionals. It’s best to look for a painting company that’s been in business for a long time.

We hope this information helps you make an informed decision when it comes to choosing the right house painter. For more information on Omaha house painting services, call us.
