Why Should You Hire House Painters?

“Isn’t painting a house easy?”. I get this question a lot from customers and I thought I’d take a minute to address the concern I have with this sort of question.

Do it yourself house painting is obviously always on option. We’ve seen some amazing work done by people who have little experience or even have ever held a paint brush. The reason I became a house painter was because I saw how with a lot of time and effort, you could really learn how to paint a beautiful house and when your an expert at something people are willing to spend a little extra money to get the job done right. Heck, painting is kinda fun! I won’t discourage anyone from painting their own home, but what I do recommend is that you get someone to do the job who has the intent and desire to do the job well. It can cause a nightmare to have a sloppy painting job done which lowers the value of your home and creates more time and money to fix.

Before you consider doing a house painting job yourself we always recommend asking yourself 3 simple questions

1. Do I have the ability/tools to paint my house?

There is no end of grief which follows trying to paint a house when you don’t have the skills or ability to paint a house. Without even mentioning the issues you will face by not having the right tools, there will just be a constant headache. I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to have to paint a house if they didn’t have the right tools.


2. Do I have the time to paint my house?

Many people are often surprised at how long it actually takes to paint a full home. Before you read this line, ask yourself how long you think it will take one person (you) to paint your house if you worked full time on it. As a house painter who has done a full job on my own, I can tell you it will take roughly 3-4 days to get the job done correctly. Do you have this much time to set aside for the job?


3. Can you afford mistakes?

The most common time we paint someone’s house is when they are about to move, or trying to increase the value of their home. In both these cases, there isn’t a lot of room for mistakes. If you had damage on your home because you wanted to paint it, would this cause a major crisis? Paint spills on the carpet or the roof can turn into major problems and you need to be prepared to deal with them.
