Painting the interior or exterior of your house can breathe new life into your home. Painting can be relatively simple if you only want to paint one wall or a small room. The process gets much more complicated when you want to paint the whole interior or the exterior of your home. No matter what size paint project you are considering, it makes sense to hire a pro because your time is valuable, equipment costs will add up, and experience matters.
Your time is valuable
A paint project takes time to complete. A small project such as painting one wall in your living room or painting a bathroom may take up one Saturday. A larger project such as painting the entire interior or exterior of your home can stretch on for weeks. Before you commit to doing a paint project on your own think about how much time you are willing to give up. When you consider the value of your time the cost savings of painting on your own start to dwindle. If you take an honest look at the length of the project you may realize that it does not make financial sense to give up so much of your valuable time. A painting pro will be able to complete the project much quicker than you could on your own.
Equipment costs will add up
Do you have the necessary equipment to complete a paint project? Most homeowners do not have the proper equipment on hand for a paint project. Equipment you may need includes rollers, brushes, paint trays, drop cloths, painter’s tape, ladder and/or scaffolding. For an exterior painting project you will also need equipment to properly prepare the surface for paint. The cost of this equipment can quickly add up. In order to get an accurate understanding of the cost of painting on your own, you must calculate the price of equipment. A painting pro will have all of the equipment needed to complete your project. When you hire a pro you can avoid surprise equipment costs.
Another reason to hire a pro for your next paint project is experience. The ultimate goal of a paint project is to end up with a finished product that meets your standards. A paint professional has the experience to provide you with a high-quality finished product. There are a number of factors that go into getting a great paint job and it will take time to learn all of those factors on your own. You can save yourself time and frustration by hiring a pro from the very beginning.
