Economic Downturn Makes for the Ideal Time to Renovate and Remodel

The steep hike in the cost of fuel and gasoline, soaring prices of goods and services, and weakening domestic or global economy indicate that a country is in or heading towards an economic recession. During an economic crisis, you may have no choice but to reduce your spending. Living within your means is even more urgent in times of economic slowdown. 

With that in mind, you may not be considering renovating or remodeling your home or commercial property right now. Or you may have to shelve your renovating or remodeling plans for the moment until the situation improves.

Why is remodeling a home or business during an economic crisis a great idea?

Large and small businesses face declining sales and profits during an economic downturn, spurring closures and bankruptcies. The question is – does it make sense to renovate or remodel your home or business during economic uncertainty?

The answer may surprise you. However, renovations during a recession can be the smartest thing to do. Considering the current economic situation, some savvy investors – especially those planning to sell their homes or open their businesses soon – take advantage of the following factors to schedule home painting projects:

  • Demand for painting jobs drops, so rates will also drop, as well.
  • Materials cost less.
  • There will likely be more contractors competing for jobs.
  • It saves you money while getting quality service.
  • It improves your home’s resale value.

Paint prices are the lowest in 15 years – refresh your home or commercial property now!

Choose only licensed contractors for top-quality jobs and peace of mind

Far too many scammers are waiting to prey on unsuspecting customers like you, especially in these challenging economic times. Expired and often, the absence of a valid license is one of the common “red flags” among bogus contractors who promise you the stars.

To prevent yourself from getting scammed by unscrupulous “contractors,” go to the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) by checking their website at to verify that your contractor has a valid working license. Take advantage of the low rates in this period of economic slump. But as a word of caution, be careful with whom you’re dealing with and hire only licensed residential and commercial painters.

Always ask for references!

While searching for home or commercial painting contractors for your next project, make sure to ask them for references, which will give you a clearer idea as to how they deal with customers. The rule of thumb is to check at least three to five references. If the contractors cannot provide you with references, you should not hire them as your painter.

Once you have all the references you need, make sure you call them and ask basic questions, such as “How well is the last paint job holding up?” and “Are you satisfied with their work?” If the customers you’re talking to are satisfied with the painting contractor, it is a good indication that the contractor offers the best quality of service to their customers, as well as admirable professional traits such as punctuality, cleaning up after a day’s work, etc.

Custom Painting, Inc. guarantees you licensed and experienced painters and contractors who assure you quality work and peace of mind. We always make sure that the contractor we send over has a valid and up-to-date license and delivers the quality service you’ve come to associate with our name.
