Painting your home is a fun but messy activity for those involved. It allows you to explore your creative side and bond with your family. While painting your home by yourself may be fun, it still has a few downsides when you do it improperly. This is why hiring a professional is still the best course of action.
In this post, roofing contractor Elite Construction shares a few reasons why you should hire a professional to paint your home.
Difficulty – While some homes may be easy to paint, most aren’t. This is especially true if you live in older homes that require special treatment to paint. For instance, straight exteriors on box-shaped homes can be painted by yourself but if you live in an irregularly shaped home with two or more stories, it’ best to hire a professional. There’s also a chance that your home has lead paint if it was built before 1978, and removing it yourself can be toxic.
Tools and Materials – Depending on your home, the project may vary and so will your equipment. If you lack the special equipment necessary for the job, then you may have to rent some. These equipment include scaffolding and planks or a lift if you live in a multi-story home. Are you comfortable with heights? If not, hire a professional painter.
Cost & Experience- Painting your home is costly, from the equipment to primer to paint. You’ll pay retail prices on equiment and supplies, and you’ll rack up costs if you make any mistakes. Hiring a professional team will guarantee quality work the first time around, such as our roofing company.
- Time and Labor – Painting your home’s exterior is not only financially restrictive but labor-intensive too. DIYing your painting job could take weeks, and end up being more expensive than if you hired a pro!
