It’s a fact we’d never deny – there’s nothing quite as satisfying as standing back and admiring your handiwork!
We’re totally on-board with the addictive nature of DIY and the constant compulsion to improve things around the home. We also understand that once you’ve got to grips with the basics of DIY, you find yourself looking for bigger and more challenging jobs to tackle. One day you’re painting your surfaces indoors, the next you’re planning a complete exterior transformation.
Truth is, painting the exterior of the property is technically within the capabilities of anyone with a decent knack for DIY. Just as long as you have the specialist equipment, safety gear and painting skills needed to get the job done, you probably can.
Still, just because you can do something doesn’t necessarily mean you should. DIY exterior painting is possible, but there are some distinct advantages that accompany hiring help. Some of which could have you thinking twice about whether the DIY option is worth bothering with.
So if there’s an exterior makeover on the cards for your home in the near future, here are the five big advantages of bringing in the experts:
It Saves You Time
First up, it’s important not to underestimate just how much time is needed to successfully paint a property’s exterior. If you think it’s the kind of task you can tackle in just an afternoon or two, you can think again! There’s a reason why professional painters bring entire teams along for the ride. It’s a time-consuming and labor-intensive job that never fails to take the uninitiated by surprise. So if you simply don’t have the time available to get the job done properly, why not have the experts sort it on your behalf?
It Saves You Money
Believe it or not, bringing in professional painters could work out considerably cheaper than the DIY option. This is because when you hire help, you don’t need to purchase or hire a single piece of equipment. Everything needed to complete the project is brought along by your painting team. From brushes and rollers to ladders to safety gear and everything else besides, the costs of DIY exterior painting soon add up. Not to mention, the fact that pro painters pick up paint at wholesale prices – savings that can be passed on to the customer.
It Could Save You!
Exterior home painting might not be the most dangerous pursuit in the world, but it’s not without its risks. Particularly if you’re new to the whole thing, it’s surprisingly easy to make the kinds of simple mistakes that can jeopardize your health and safety. Bringing in the pros eliminates all such risks from the equation, handing responsibility to a trained team with all the latest safety gear and accessories. Far better than putting your neck on the line for no good reason!
It Saves Disappointment and Frustration
We said at the beginning that there’s nothing quite as satisfying as standing back and admiring your handiwork. Sadly, this doesn’t apply in instances when you’re massively disappointed with the final result. In fact, there’s nothing worse than stepping back from a completed project and realizing you’ve made a complete and utter hash of it. With a pro paint job, you’re literally guaranteed an outstanding result. Not to mention, the warranty covering the quality of the result for at least a couple of years. Peace of mind from start to finish, which can be priceless in its own right!
It Saves a Lot of Hassle
Last but not least, painting a property’s exterior is a difficult, messy and challenging job at the best of times. Assuming you’re already balancing a pretty hectic schedule, chances are you could do without the hassle. Even if you stand to save a tiny amount of money by handling it yourself, it’s worth asking yourself – can you really be bothered? If the answer is no, the expert input you need is just a phone call away!
