Are Some Types of Paint Better Than Others for Sacramento Homes?
When choosing an exterior paint for your Sacramento home, you’ll have two choices: water-based or oil-based. Water-based paints are ideal for most interior and exterior surfaces, since they flex and breathe with your home, won’t trap moisture, and are highly resistant to cracking and peeling. On the other hand, if you’re looking to paint stained or “bleeding” wood (e.g. saps that leak to the surface), such as you’ll find on true log construction properties, then oil-based paints may be a better option.
Whichever type of paint you end up using though, you’ll want to make sure an appropriate primer is applied in order to maximize how the paint adheres to the surface of your home or commercial building.
Admittedly, you have a lot of choices when it comes to painting the interior or exterior of your Sacramento home, but the good news is that Spectrum One can help narrow your choices during your free consultation, based specifically on your wants and needs.

Tell Me More About the Painting Process
While Spectrum One epitomizes exceptional craftsmanship in our painting procedures, the process we follow depends heavily on whether we’re painting the interior or exterior of your property. In general though, after an extensive consultation with one of our painting professionals, we’ll help you choose the best paint type and color based on your specifications. On the day work begins, we’ll prepare the surfaces to be painted, which may be as simple as masking off areas of sheetrock in the interior, or hand scraping, power washing, or re-caulking areas on the exterior.
Then, a primer or sealer is applied. After this dries, anywhere from 1-3 coats will be applied for maximum adhesion and durability.
Once the painting process is complete, we’ll perform a walk-through with you in order to ensure everything meets your specifications, settle up payment, and leave you to enjoy your beautifully refreshed home.
How Long Does Painting Take?
As we’ve mentioned with many of our other services, including siding, decks, and roofs, how long it will take to paint your Sacramento home depends on a wide variety of factors. In this instance, it includes whether we’ll be painting the interior or exterior, the types of paint we’ll be using, the total area we’ll be painting, the types of surfaces (e.g. wood, concrete, metal, etc.) we’ll be painting, and more.
During your free consultation, we’ll tour your Sacramento home, talk to you about what you’re looking to achieve, and formulate a plan to help get you there, including a detailed timetable.

Important Considerations About Painting Your Sacramento Property
Here at Spectrum One, we’ll walk you through the different types available to you, and can even recommend a specific type or brand if you need. It’s also important to remember that paint—whether interior or exterior, residential or commercial—comes in a wide range of quality, which will ultimately affect how good it looks once applied, how well it will perform as time marches on, how much maintenance it requires, and how long it will go before requiring a complete re-painting.
How Much Does Painting Cost?
Interior painting is generally calculated on the size of the room, any special features (e.g. crown molding, tray ceiling, etc), as well as whether or not the ceiling requires painting. This is in addition to the types of paints you’d like for your Spectrum One painters to use.
With this said, on average, having the interior of your Sacramento home professionally painted will cost you anywhere from $3 to $5 per square foot.
Unlike interior paints, which typically only encounter sheetrock and wood, the exterior paint you choose for your Sacramento home will need to be selected based on whether they’ll be applied to wood, vinyl, or fiber cement, stucco, or other type of siding, each of which can carry unique price tags.
However, you can typically expect to pay between $3 to $5 for a professional exterior painting from Spectrum One.
