shutterstock_624228239Painting is a common home project because it can make a big difference in the way your home looks without costing a ton of money. Painting is inexpensive when compared to major renovations. The fact that painting can be done without spending a lot of money erroneously leads some people to believe that it is an easy task. Some paint jobs are fine as DIY projects but many require the help of a professional. How do you know if you need to hire a professional painter? Take a look at the size and scope of your project, your timeframe, and the options for professional painters in your area.

The size of your project

The size of your project will have a big impact on whether you paint on your own or hire a professional painter. For example, there is a big difference between painting an accent wall and repainting the entire interior of your house. There is a process you need to go through to properly paint any part of your house. Do you have the physical ability/time/tools/expertise to go through that process for a large project? If not, consider bringing in a professional painter. The finished product will be professional and it will all get done properly.

The scope of your project

Some paint projects are more complicated than others. On interior projects you may have to patch holes, repair drywall damage, and match texture. These are all tasks that take time and practice to master. For an exterior paint project, you may have to pressure wash the house, repair damaged siding, or replace siding that is beyond repair. If you do not already have the necessary skills to complete the scope of your project, bring in a professional. A professional painter will have the skills and resources to do all of the necessary prep work to ensure that your finished product looks great.

Your timeframe

Painting can be a time-consuming task – especially if you are not an experienced and confident painter. Do you have time to properly prepare every surface that needs to be painted? Do you have the patience to tape up every transition to ensure straight lines? The quickest way to finish a paint project at your house is with the help of a professional painter.

The options for professional painters in the area

The options for professional painters in your area can have an impact on whether or not you choose to hire a professional. If you have a top-notch option nearby, then getting professional help with your paint project is an easy decision.
