Remodeling a Home: Paint or Floors First?

Jun 21, 2013

If you are doing a complete remodel (or build) of a new home, you have to decide which order you are going to do things. Should you do the kitchen or bathroom first? Paint the walls or put in the new flooring? When it comes to house paint, Three Brothers Painting in Woodstock, GA has the answers so we are going to talk about why you should always paint before putting in new floors.

The simple answer to this question is this: paint is messy, and inevitably there are going to be drips and splatters. Instead of worrying about your new floors, paint all of your walls and trim first. This will eliminate the hassle of trying to clean up splatters off of your brand new hardwoods, or taping down plastic all over your carpet. Flooring is much more expensive than just a can of paint, so make sure you let us come in and do the painting before you call in your hardwood flooring contractors. Do keep this in mind – the flooring guys are probably going to mess up your brand new paint job. Its just part of the process. As soon as you get your walls perfect and freshly painted, the floor guys are going to come in and nick up some of the walls and baseboards. Rather than worrying over whether or not they are going to create this problem, just plan for it. Keep enough paint left over from the first coats on the walls and trim to touch up any scuffs the flooring contractors cause.

Or, you can avoid the stress and mess all together and give Three Brothers Painting a call. We will repaint your home’s interior and you can rest easy and enjoy the finished product!
