Should you hire professional painters or tackle the job yourself?
To answer this question, we find ourselves asking a follow-up: Do you want the paint job done right the first time?
If the answer is yes, then you should probably turn to the pros. Here’s why it’s worth it to hire painters.
You’ll Save Time
When you decide to do a painting project yourself, you’re agreeing to give up a huge chunk of your time. No matter how great of a painter you are, it’s still going to pull you away from other items on your to-do list. And with all of the prep-work involved in painting the right way, it’s usually not a fast project.
Your time is valuable, and your manpower is limited. If you try to rush through the project, you’re going to end up with a mediocre result. And if you don’t have time to do it right the first time, when are you going to have time to do it over again? (Thanks for the quote, John Wooden.)
When you let the pros handle it, the project will have a quicker turnaround time. Professional interior painters work with utmost efficiency so the project is finished in a timely manner. The painting company will send a team of expert painters, giving the project more manpower than you can supply by yourself. You’ll get a high-quality paint job completed on time and on budget.
You’ll Save Money
Speaking of budget, does hiring someone to paint sound contradictory to saving money? Hear us out. As we mentioned above, hiring professional painters means the job gets done right the first time. That means no duplicative efforts resulting in buying double the supplies. Professional painters ensure the job is done so well, it won’t need to be updated or touched-up for years to come.
Also, your time comes at a cost. If you’re taking unpaid days off work to get a paint project done, you’re losing out on money you could be earning.
You’ll Save Your Sanity
Painting isn’t easy. Painting your home’s interior or exterior by yourself can be a stressful experience, especially when you don’t have expert knowledge and efficiencies in place. With a team of interior painters in your corner, you can turn your attention to other to-dos, like running errands, taking the kids to their sporting events, spending time outdoors, or even taking a nap. You can kick back and relax while leaving the stress to the pros.
You’ll Avoid Messes and Mishaps
When you paint, do unforeseen drips and spills leave messes no matter how careful you are? This happens often when DIY amateur painters don’t know how to properly protect their belongings and surroundings. Professional interior painters can guarantee that your home is protected from paint splatters by removing items from your walls, taking down your blinds and curtains, removing outlet covers, properly covering flooring, and more. A painting company will also accurately adhere painting tape and use painter’s plastic so that your ceiling paint, wall paint, or trim paint colors appear only where they should — and not on anything they shouldn’t.
You’re Guaranteed a Job Well Done
When you choose professional painters like Sharper Impressions, you get a warranty that covers both labor and materials, just in case something goes wrong with the end result. You get your professional painting warranty in writing at the time of your quote.
Yes, It’s Worth It to Hire Painters
To sum it all up, it’s worth it to hire professionals to handle your paint job — big or small. What price can you put on convenience, efficiency, low-stress, and a high-quality finished product?
