The new year is upon us, and you are excited to give your home a modern look.
The big question is, do you paint your home yourself or hire a professional painter to do the job?
Painting your rooms can give you bragging rights, and you may save a lot of money, but painting your home is not as easy as you think.
The preparation alone can be a tedious process, and a residential painting contractor may be the best decision that you can make this new year.
Here are the top reasons why hiring a professional contractor can benefit you in the long run.
One of the reasons why homeowners choose to DIY a residential painting project is to save money.
Many DIY residential painting endeavors have gone over budget due to many factors. You need to buy rollers, brushes, tape, drop cloths, paint, and tools. The cost rises even more when you need to make frequent trips to the hardware store to buy more materials.
Time spent is also a consideration because you don’t want to spend so much time working on your DIY and neglect working for a living.
Hiring a professional contractor may seem like a more expensive choice initially, but in the long term may be more affordable than DIY.
Painting a few rooms may take you the whole weekend to finish, but when you consider working on the entire house, that is a different story.
If you are like many homeowners of today, you are used to juggling work and family time.
Weekends may give you some free time for a DIY project, but you need to consider the prep time for covering floors, windows, furniture, and all other parts of your home that need to be taped to avoid being painted on.
Repairing and sanding holes also add up to the prep work, and did you buy all of the materials already?
A Saturday off from work is best spent resting and being with family, the last thing you would want is to spend more time “working on a residential painting project” on a weekend.
Having a paintbrush or two in your tool shed is not enough to get your DIY painting project done. The list can be a long one; you will need high-quality rollers and brushes, poles, drop cloths, ladders, caulk gun, scaffolding, and other tools that can help make the job done more efficiently.
Painting companies are equipped with the latest tools and equipment, which means that they don’t need to make countless trips to the store to finish the residential painting job.
Professional painters specialize in painting projects, and their experience is way more than the average DIY painter.
They can do the job quickly and efficiently and, more importantly, do the job the right way.
They can tape edges the right way, know which type of paint and brushes to use for a particular surface.
If you make a mistake and need to do a repainting job, you end up spending more.
Leave the job to the pros and let them worry about the little details that you might overlook.
Your DIY project is only as good as the painting materials that you use. Professional painters know which type of paints to use to give a beautiful and long-lasting finish.
Using cheap and low-cost paint may save you money upfront but may end up fading and chipping in less than a year, which will lead to a costly repainting job.
If the preparation requires a lot of work, you also need to do a lot of cleanups once your DIY residential painting project is finished.
Professional contractors can get your home back to how it was before the painting job was started.
They also know the proper way to get rid off paint, thinners and other hazardous materials
Licensed and Insured
Hiring a company that is licensed and insured gives a feeling of security for both owner and contractor.
Accidents can happen during a residential painting project, and insurance is one way to protect you from the unexpected.
You might fall off that ladder for all we know, why risk getting injured?
