While you can manage to paint small rooms by yourself, if you need to have your whole house painted, you are better off hiring a contractor or a professional handyman service. There are several reasons why it is always advisable to turn to a professional for a well-painted home or room.
They will save your furniture
Most of the time you will spend in a job like painting a room will be spent on doing the prep work. This means covering the floors and furniture to make sure that no paint gets on them. While many homeowners think that they have done a good job with these, some paint inevitably ends up on expensive furniture or on the floor. Professionals know exactly how to cover your prized furniture and floor and will make sure all the paint ends up only where it is intended to go.
They will come with all the supplies needed
You may think that a brush, roller and cans of paint are all you need to paint a house, but there is a lot of other specialized equipment that is needed for a professional painting job. Contractors and handymen will be able to supply sprayers, scaffolding and ladders that will mean that they will be able to handle every area of the house with equal attention to quality.
They know how to cut-in
Cutting-in refers to painting hard to paint areas like trim without having to mask it. Masking takes up a lot of time and can also get expensive if you use painter’s tape. Expert painters will be able to paint the sensitive areas without masking and have the skills and expertise to achieve a flawless look.
They will save you time
Experienced painters will be able to paint your house and have it back to normal very fast. If you decide to do the job yourself, you may spend days without the use of certain areas of the house as you paint them. Contractors can come in and paint entire houses very quickly because they have the experience, the supplies, the tools and the manpower to get it done without much trouble.
Additionally, contractors will also be able to advise you on the kind of paint to use and what colors will look good where. They will also be able to deliver a quality that you may not be able to achieve if it is your first time attempting such a task.
