The 6 Advantages of Painting before Moving In

 

1. Faster

It’s a no brainer that painting an empty house takes less time and effort than painting an occupied home. Empty houses allow smooth movement of painters from room to room. Another advantage of painting an empty house is that it is easy to protect and cover the floors.   

 

2. Cheaper

Painting contractors make advance estimates before painting your new home based on coverage area and labor hours. It will cost homeowners less money while painting an unoccupied home because painters work at a faster rate in such homes since they don’t use time moving furniture around the house.

 

3. Convenient

Painting an empty house is convenient to painters because they can easily access the walls. They can quickly tape off and start rolling on new paints with less effort because they do not have anything obstructing their view. Painting an empty house is also convenient because occupiers don’t have to worry about moving their clothes while the painting of the interior parts of their closets is going on.

 

4. Easy Clean-Up

Unoccupied homes are easier and faster to clean up after doing a successful paint job. Cleaning up empty homes is quick and this allows you to enjoy your beautiful new paint job all the faster.

 

5. It’s Less Messy

Painting your home before moving in is ideal because it enables you to avoid scenarios where there are spills, smudges, and fingerprints. This can happen so easily if your moving items around before the paint has had sufficient time to completely dry.

 

6. Increase Curb Appeal

Homes that are painted before occupancy sell faster. They sell at a faster rate because potential homeowners are attracted to newly painted homes. Well painted houses in pristine condition sell more quickly and at a higher asking price.
