Residential Painting Sherwood, Oregon: Tips for Saving Money at Home Depot
Large retail stores like Home Depot offer many discounts, coupons, and special programs that can save a lot of money.
If you have a home improvement project or two to get done in Sherwood, Oregon, you will want to look into these opportunities.
One of the keys to finding the best deals on home improvement is patience. If you have a large project, collect a few of these tools, and wait for the right time to buy.
To get you started, here are some nifty ways to get lower prices at Home Depot.
1. Negotiate Lower Prices For Less Than Perfect Products.
Like any store, Home Depot has less than perfect items on its shelves.
When you see a product that’s not perfect, talk to a store associate for a discounted price.
It happens more often than you can imagine.
2. Ask For A Price That Makes More Sense Than The Price Indicated
Everything at Home Depot is not carefully packaged and sealed. Many products are challenging to classify and price.
For instance, if you’re buying a natural slate stone, they don’t price it by weight or accurate dimensions, rather by visual observation and estimation.
So if you feel like the stone is unfairly priced, you can successfully ask for a lower price by citing things like color and shape.
3. If Home Depot has a product on display but isn’t available, you can get a more expensive item at a lower cost
While this is not precisely a Home Depot policy, putting a customer first is – so you may be able to leverage it to your advantage.
I’ve seen someone do it before, and here’s how it works;
Let’s say Home Depot has a cheap Ryobi hammer drill. You want it; you are ready to buy now. But – oops. It’s not on the shelves.
Find a store partner and mention how much you want this product.
You need it for the toilet flange you are installing (and you need it now).
You are wondering if you can get the Makita hammer drill cheaply for the same price. The Home Depot likes to please their customers, and so you may end getting the Makita hammer drill at the price of the Ryobi hammer drill.
4. Find The 70% Off Bin And Other Shelves With Good Deals
The best way to save money, and it requires no negotiation.
The Home Depot wood section almost always has a trash can or cart in the darkest and most distant parts of the store where the wood is discounted by 70%.
Much of this cut wood was for a customer who has never claimed or made known to a Home Depot associate when they will collect it.
Other products are just weird things that nobody wants – but you just might.
5. Keep your eyes open
One is ethically dependent, and some people can cringe about it.
As a longtime customer with the big orange box, I think that is part of how our relationship works.
If you shop at Home Depot long enough, they will overcharge you.
No ill will is expected.
This is the case of an employee counting – and invoicing you – 50 concrete pavers, when you only have 42 in the cart.
You discover this two weeks later, and you are caught in an untenable situation.
Go back to the store and resell these pavers only based on your word?
Not likely –it ultimately comes back to you.
So when shopping at Home Depot, keep your eyes open, verify your receipts, and, where applicable, have a copy of the receipt emailed to you.

Kevin began painting houses with his father’s company, C&K Painting, in 1996. His father taught him how to use a brush, roller, and caulk and clean a brush properly. He then worked for several other paint companies, where he learned how to spray oils, lacquers, and all water-based finishes. In 2012, after 15 years of experience, he decided to get licensed and start the Maller Painting Company. His team has focused on providing the best re-painting services to our residential clients in the Beaverton area.
