Why Hire a Professional?
This is the question many people ask when they consider painting their own home. A typical reply is often another question. “It will be cheaper to do it myself, right?”
Then comes the big think.
What quality of work am I capable of?
How much time will it take to clean, move furniture, box up a few valuables and prep each room?
What painting equipment do I already have?
Do I know anyone who’d lend me supplies? Are they in good condition or even the ones I will need for my home?
Can I coordinate a quick meetup for the borrowed, and how much additional time and money will it cost me to purchase all the materials I need to complete the work?
What happens if I get pulled away from completing the painting before it’s done?
Can I handle a few extra hours, days or even weeks without the room or rooms being put back together?
Consider that most paint jobs require these basic supplies:
- Caulking, filler and applicators
- Dust mask or respirator
- Drop sheets or plastic
- Ladders or sturdy step stools
- Rollers, roller pole, trays and tray liners
- Sandpaper and sanding poles
Your hired team of professional painters will already have all of this equipment and the latest technology in sprayers and applicators that make for an efficient and polished job. Doing it yourself may save you very little in comparison to the investment in equipment, paint and the time it takes you to do the work. Surely you have other endeavors that make better use of your talents and time. Do you really want to spend time away from your family or to take vacation time off from work to paint?
