Homeowner’s Guide to Painting

Whether you are a new homeowner or a homeowner looking to sell your home, you will have plenty of tasks to occupy your time and the last thing you want to do is worry about painting your home before moving into or out of your home. Here at, CertaPro Painters® of The Grand & Niagara, we offer move-in and move-out ready painting services designed to help individuals and families prepare their homes for a change without getting in the way. Our team will work 100% of the time on prepping, painting, and clean-up, so homeowners can tend to other businesses without the hassle.

Our painting services are offered by our professional painting contractors who have the skills, experience, and equipment necessary to complete the job quickly and efficiently.  CertaPro Painters® of The Grand & Niagara can take the stress out of moving when you choose to hire our company. We offer several exterior and interior services to renovate your home before or after you move. This will ensure the best possible investment for your home, and peace of mind while you tend to other more important things on your moving to-do list.


Exterior - Loose paint is scraped and glossy areas are sanded. We make repairs to any siding damage and then caulk to prevent water from entering your home.

Interior - Your furniture and other room décor are placed in the center of the room, covered with new, clean plastic sheeting, and all flooring is protected with drop cloths.


After any repaired areas are primed, premium-quality paint is applied to create a uniform finish. Our company offers several varieties of finishes that would fit your desired look.

Work with our color consultant to help choose the colors that would compliment your home. We can also color match, if you are looking for a paint refresh.


Exterior - At the end of each day, the painting crew cleans up around your home, ensuring any paint chips are removed and all materials are stored neatly away.

Interior - The crew removes all of their materials, vacuum and sweep your floors and carpets, and move your furniture and décor back where they belong.


After our own inspection, your job site supervisor will walk you through or around the space, giving you the opportunity to review our work and provide any initial feedback.

Why Should I Paint Before I Move In?

As the demand for real estate goes up, many people are looking for new places to live. If you’re reading this section, that means you’re in the process of moving into your new place. Getting a new home can be a big chapter in your life and with this new experience often comes remodeling changes. Investing in remodeling services can make your new place feel like home.

Whether you chose to do the work yourself or hire a professional painter, it’s a lot easier to paint an empty room. No one will have to worry about moving furniture around or taking decor down from the walls. Essentially, this will reduce the time it will take to complete the painting job, and allow more time for you to unpack your belongings.

Why Should I Paint Before I Move Out?

For those looking to move out, there may be situations that call for prepping your place for new residents. Whether it’s a home you are selling or a rental, time can cause interior and exterior paint to wear away due to environmental factors. It is not uncommon for the paint to become chipped, cracked, or faded over time. Painting your home can refresh the home’s appearance and increase the value of the property.

As for tenants, sometimes landlords let you paint your home if you agree to leave the unit in the same condition as when you moved in. To save you time and ensure your security deposit is returned, hire a professional painter today to work on your next interior painting project.
