When it comes to painting your home, it may be tempting to pull up a YouTube video rather than invest in a professional service. While some people have the background to take on a painting job, hiring an experienced painter could be a better choice for many reasons.
Here’s what to consider before embarking on a DIY project of your own.
Pros of DIY Painting
A big reason people consider painting their own home is to save money. You will still need to buy all your own painting supplies, brushes, and painting accessories for the job.
When you do your own paint job, you have total control of the project. You can experiment with different colors and styles. And you may think you executing your vision will be easier than trying to tell a painter exactly what it is you want done.
However, you are taking a big risk if you don’t have much experience. A trained professional should be able to deliver quality work at a reasonable price.
Pros of Hiring a Professional Painter
While you might save money and have more control over a DIY painting project, it will likely look like a DIY project. Professional painters know what mistakes to avoid, what areas need more or less paint, and how to pull the look together. The precision that comes with hiring a professional will definite become apparent in the small details.
Your time is valuable, and painting can be extremely tedious work. Professionals know what they are doing, and can get a paint job done in half the time. You never know what kind of speed bumps you’ll run into, so if you’re on a time crunch, it’s best to avoid DIY.
If you do your own paint job and it comes out poorly, you may end up having a professional redo it anyway, costing you money and time. A professional painting company will often guarantee satisfaction, so you can be sure you are 100% happy with the results.
