OK, so we moms (and maybe dad) can be super awesome at making the home feel cozy and beautiful. But sometimes, considering professionals is the better choice than doing all the work yourself.
At the outset, you might think hiring professionals to paint your house might be more expensive?
Yet, if you want a high-quality paint job, you’re going to need all the necessary tools and experience to reach pro standards. As well, when taking time away from work to paint the house, you’ll be losing income that could have just paid for a pro.
So now, let’s delve a little deeper into why professional painters are the way to go…
The Stress-Free Option
If you don’t have the necessary tools and items to paint the entire house, then it will be a bit of pain finding them all.
At the very least, you’re going to need:
- Lots of paint
- Masking tape
- Various paintbrushes
- Step ladder
- Drop cloths
- A bucket
- Paint tray
- Roller frame
- Sponges or rags
The above are really just general essentials needed for painting your house – professionals will have way more handy tools at their disposal. Besides, once you manage to get all this stuff you’ve purchased, you have to store it and eventually prep it all up!
It’s a lot of effort, and if you don’t have the time, you’ll be delaying the process way longer than you ever envisioned. The worst-case scenario is that you have rooms that are out of bounds. This is because they’ll be continually getting touched up with paint in your limited free-time – and the smell won’t go down with the family for long.
Instead, professional painters will probably get the job done in a day or two! They have all the equipment, know exactly what they are doing, and before you know it, your home will feel fresh and revitalized with your newly painted walls.
Time is Precious
Now you know all the work involved with painting the home, surely it’s clear you’ll save a lot of time hiring professionals?
You do need a lot of free time to paint your home correctly, and many of us just don’t have enough as it is – with jam-packed schedules and kids to take care of.
As we said, you’ll have to source all of your tools and equipment and do all the prep work. But have you considered that you’ll have to shift all the furniture in every room? Plus, think how difficult those hard-to-reach places are going to be.
It makes more sense to continue making money at what you do best and let professional painters do likewise in your home.
Be honest with yourself – are you confident enough to get the clean lines and achieve the high standards that pros produce daily?
A good way to think of this is would you cut your hair or ask your partner to do it and expect it to be perfect? Some things are best left to people who have trained in their trade and deliver results. These guys know all the little tricks and secrets to make sure that their paintwork comes out beautiful and clean every time.
You could accidentally miss spots around the home, and you might be inclined to cut corners – which might not bother you so much now. Yet, there could be a time when you want to sell your home, and the half-hearted paintwork will be an issue.
Additionally, the pros will have excellent product knowledge at their disposal, so they’ll know which paints will work best with your walls. Plus, since they’ve painted so many homes, they could advise you on potentially bad color choices for specific spaces in your home.
Lastly, painting brick house can be a nightmare if you don’t know what you’re doing – it’s best left to the pros!
Professional Painters are Insured
Professional painting is a highly competitive industry, and now you have the added advantage of checking out online reviews of ones in your area.
You might end up hiring a painter and saving a lot of money if you carried out the entire process alone. And what’s more, professional painters are insured, so if any accidents or mishaps occur, you’ll be covered – that peace of mind is worth something.
Furthermore, be wary of local painters as they may quote you low prices, but there are no guarantees that you’ll be satisfied with their work – and they probably won’t be insured.
Decorative Painting in the Home
Many of us now have particular style ideas that we’d like to try since there’s so much inspiration out there nowadays. You could want decorative feature walls added in certain areas throughout the home, with stripes maybe or whatever you fancy.
The problem is that if you don’t have the experience, time, patience, and tools to paint to carry out decorative painting – it will never get completed. It will be one of those ongoing projects that make your home look ugly and unfinished when it is half completed.
Instead, get the professionals in, show them your hand-drawn designs or online pics, and they’ll most likely be able to do as you wish in a short timeframe with precision.
It Can Be So Fun!
Not doing all the hard graft yourself means you can focus on the details. And, the painters you hire will keep you informed in detail about the whole painting process. Whether it’s picking the colors and types of paints or how they will prepare each space – you’ll be able to watch your home transform without all the hard work involved.
The Bottom Line
Everyone thinks that painting their own home will save money and it can’t be that hard. Yet, painting your home is a stressful, time-consuming, and quite a difficult task to undertake when you think about it.
In reality, it will probably work out to be the same price or cheaper if you choose to hire professional painters into your home. Local painters can be more affordable, but there are no guarantees that they will complete the job to a high standard.
