When painting your home, you want to make sure you hire the best professionals in the industry. Once you find who those professionals are, it's time to draw up a contract. But what types of things should be included in the contract?  Item One: Payment Terms  Not every painting company is the same. Some companies will ask you to pay upfront, while other companies will ask for payment once the entire job is completed. It is essential to establish these parameters at the beginning of the painting contract discussions to make sure you know how the payment process will be conducted.  Item Two: Prep Work Included When discussing contract terms with a painting professional, they will usually detail in writing the type of preparation needed to take place before the painting project can begin. Having this in writing inside the contract allows for clarity and understanding of what needs to occur before the painting can start.  Item Three: Type Of Paint Being Recommended  Painting your home is already a significant task - having the right product for the job can ensure long-lasting results. Make sure you discuss the type of paint being used inside your home with your professional painter. The right product will guarantee that your home will look lavish and last for years to come.  Item Four: Details When completing a contract with your painting professional, getting details right the first time is significant. These details include which rooms

The Northeast states experience some of the harshest winter weather in the United States. As we enter December, we are fastly approaching peak winter here in Ohio and Michigan. Protecting your home against the elements can be tricky. Luckily, we here at Somerset Painting have some helpful tips to keep your home looking great.  Things For Homeowners To Consider For The Winter  Older man winter is knocking at our doors. December through March is when cold weather, snow, and sleet come tumbling down through the sky. But how can homeowners maintain their dwellings in preparation for these months?  Cleaning Out The Gutters  Your gutters might be hard to reach, but clogged drains could lead to ice dams forming and icicles dropping below if not correctly maintained. Aside from these types of damages in your home, clogged gutters can also lead to indoor leaks and drywall damage inside of your home.  Caulking Around Your Home  Caulking can assist in repairing holes, cracks, and even leaks inside and outside of the house. It’s a good rule of thumb to go around the exterior of your home and check for cracking separation or anything that looks damaged from the previous summer/fall months. Freezing temperatures and water damage can result in much bigger long-term problems.  Get Those Tree Branches Taken Care Of Getting rid of swaying or loose tree branches close to your home can help eliminate potential risks during the winter months.
