Some subjects are more than worth revisiting…and this is definitely one of them!
On a regular basis, we encounter homeowners who ask us the very same question – why? Why does it make sense to hire professional painters, when there’s always the DIY option to explore?
Of course, we can’t deny that stepping back from a completed project and saying “Yeah, I did that” is satisfying to say the least. We get a kick out of every job we tackle. And along with the bragging rights that accompany this kind of manual labor, there’s also the undeniable appeal of saving a few bucks along the way.
So if this is the case, why go ahead and hire a professional painter?
The short answer – interior painting isn’t always as easy as it looks. In fact, it rarely is. While it’s true to say that almost anybody can paint a wall, not everyone can paint a wall like a pro. If you don’t have extensive knowledge of and experience with countless tools, techniques, accessories, surfaces and so on, you can’t realistically expect to replicate the results of those who do.
Let’s put it this way – anyone could grab a pair of scissors and chop off some hair, but would you really trust some random person to cut and style your hair? Of course not – you hire the experts for a result you can count on!
A rather obscure example perhaps, but one that nonetheless clearly communicates the important difference between the DIY and professional options. Digging into things a little deeper, here’s a quick rundown of six important reasons why you will never regret hiring a professional painter:
- Health and Safety
First and foremost, painting has the potential to be hazardous to health. Especially when tackling awkward and elevated areas, or perhaps working with potentially dangerous products. One of the best things about hiring the professionals being that absolutely none of these risks apply to you! Stay safe and healthy with a team of experienced painters on your side.
- Save Time
Unless you plan to rush the job – which represents a huge mistake in its own right – it’s going to take you a fair amount of time to get the job done. Rush it and you’ll regret it, plain and simple. What makes the difference with professional painters is how several days-worth of your own time can be compressed into just a few expert hours. Better results and faster results, saving you plenty of precious time.
- Guaranteed Results
Speaking of which, it’s not as if you can realistically provide yourself with something of a satisfaction guarantee. Neither can you be sure you’ll produce results you’ll be remotely satisfied with. The great thing about working with a team of professionals is that with a satisfaction guarantee in place, you are literally guaranteed an outstanding result. Which adds up to peace of mind from the word go and an unbeatable outcome.
Why is it that some paint jobs last for more than 10 years, while others deteriorate in a matter of months? The short answer…well, you can probably figure it out. From initial preparation to the quality of the paints and primers themselves to application methods and so on, everything you put into the process will be reflected in the outcome. Hire the professionals and you won’t find yourself in need of their assistance again for a while. Handle it yourself and you could be back up the ladder before you know it!
- Minimal Disruption
Professional painters know how to go about even the most demanding jobs in a manner that minimizes disruption and allows normal life to continue. This means there’s no reason for things to come to a grinding halt, just because your interiors needed a fresh coat of paint. Particularly when attempting to balance and run a demanding family household, minimal disruption can only be a good thing.
Last but not least, the apparent savings that accompany manual paint jobs aren’t always quite as they appear to be. The reason being that whichever way you go about it, you are going to have to pick up the required equipment, accessories, primers, paints and so on. Products you yourself are guaranteed to pay higher prices for than those in the industry, with access to exclusive wholesale deals and discounts. Long story short – you could easily end up spending more on the DIY option and still come out with inferior results.
And there you have it – six reasons why it’s a good idea to at least consult the professionals before grabbing a brush and getting started yourself.
