Reasons to Hire a Professional House Painter
Updated: Nov 12, 2019
So you’re planning to paint your house. The question is do you do it yourself, or do you hire a professional house painter to do the job for you?
1. You don’t have to take any responsibility for tedious preparation. Instead, you can just make sure the person you are paying does it correctly.
2. A well trained and experienced professional house painter will know exactly what products to use. All the same, check these products out to make sure you are happy with the choice.
3. An experienced and capable painter will also be able to give you all the information you need to know about paint. With their guidance, you will be able to choose the ideal products for your home – particularly if you want to make your own choices.
4. A good professional will be well equipped. You won’t have to outlay anything on ladders, drop sheets, buckets, rollers, paintbrushes and so forth. Some may agree to you buying the materials to save on the contract.
5. A good professional house painter will know how to prepare every type of surface correctly. It won’t matter whether he or she is painting a ceiling, walls or door and window frames…Professional painters are trained to take care of details you might not even consider. For example, they will (or should) remove hardware like handles before they start work. It takes extra effort, but they are getting paid for this.
6. If the pro painter makes a mess, it’s not (or shouldn’t be) your problem. Painting jobs usually take days and sometimes even weeks. If a professional painter is responsible for the job you won’t have to clean up every day, but they will.
7. If you are working with a professional interior designer, this person will liaise with your professional painter. The same applies to a project manager. You can simply check that the job is done to your satisfaction.
8. If the job isn’t done according to schedule and in terms of the contract, the painter will have to rectify the matter. If you do the painting, you simply can’t pass the buck!
