Should I Paint or do Flooring First?

A common question for homeowners making improvements in their home is "should I paint or do the flooring first?".  Here are a few things to consider:

Flooring and new interior paint are tasks that are often done in conjunction with each other.

Painting can be done either before or after new flooring is installed; there are pros and cons to both and typically painting is done last.

If painting is done first, the following could occur with the new flooring install:

- The flooring installer could scratch or “ding” the newly painted baseboards, requiring "touch-up" painting to be needed after the install.

- The new flooring could be thinner the old flooring, thus showing a line where painted.

If painting is done after the new flooring, the following could occur with the painting:

- New paint could be spilled or dripped on the new flooring.

- This point should not be an issue if proper set up techniques are taken, and the paint is applied by a professional painting firm.

My experience with Brooks Painting has been outstanding, and, if it were an option on Google, I would assign 100 stars to their work. Mark and his crew were exceptional in painting both the inside and outside of my Central Davis home. They were considerate, careful, and respectful of my furnishings and yard. Kristen and her office staff were also responsive to my queries and were timely in scheduling the work. Thank you Brooks Painting for assisting in transforming my house into a beautiful home!

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!

Chris and Gabriel were amazing. Corey was patient and helpful in answering questions and while I decided on colors. The office was easy to contact and had good follow-through. Thank you so much to Brooks for a job I could not possibly be happier with. Feel free to use me as a reference!

We chose Brooks Painting based on their excellent reputation. It was an excellent choice! We had them do a complete exterior and almost complete interior painting of our two story house. They were done separately, while we were out of town. We are very pleased with the quality of the work. They even fixed up a few mistakes made by a crew that painted a portion of our interior ceilings a month prior (removal of asbestos popcorn ceiling), at no extra charge. Cleanup was great, also. They repaired some dry rot that was uncovered (extra charge, but worth it), and they even moved furniture back into place as well as put back the curtain rods that I had taken down, which wasn't expected. I highly recommend them, and will use them again for any future paint jobs.
