Should I Hire A Professional Painter

Should I Hire A Professional Painter?

There are many different reasons someone may consider hiring a professional painter. Maybe you are looking to makeover your space to reflect your personal style, increase the value of your home for resale, or are simply looking to update an old paint job. Paint on the exterior of your home can help to protect the materials from the outdoor element while increasing the curb appeal, while fresh paint on the interior of your space can elevate its appearance and make your house feel like a home. While many people think painting their home is a simple DIY project that they can pull off quickly, this is not typically the case. 


When it comes to carefully painting the interior or exterior of your home, it can take an extended period of time. Not only do you need to prep all of the surfaces, but also gather all of the materials, move all of your belongings, and adequately cover floors and fixtures, the process of priming and painting typically takes much more time than homeowners estimate it to. In addition to the amount of time this will take to complete, there are many expensive supplies you will need, including ladders tall enough to reach the highest point of your home. These complications alone are enough to make many people choose to hire a professional painter for their space. 


If you are considering updating your space with new paint to give it a fresh look, Houston Residential Painters can help you. Our team provides quality painting at competitive prices, without ever sacrificing quality. We have over 30 years of experience as full-service painters servicing the Greater Houston area. We do more than just paint over problems, we install and repair drywall, add and remove texture from walls, make repairs to the exterior of homes, fix rotting wood, and much more. We make it easy for you to get the home of your dreams with our excellent customer service and wide range of painting and repair services. 


So, are you still wondering, “Should I Hire A Professional Painter?” Listed below are some of the top reasons you should hire a professional painter for your next painting project:


    Quality Takes Time: Many people believe painting their own home will be a quick weekend project that can leave their space looking fresh in just a day or two. Unfortunately, there is a lot more to plan for than just dipping your roller into fresh paint and applying it to your walls. The amount of prep work that goes into getting your space ready is a full day’s work on its own. You have to prep your walls by first cleaning them and making repairs to any areas that are damaged, which may require skill and experience to do well. Once you have cleaned your walls and prepared them to be painted, you will need to spend time covering everything that is left in the room. This includes furniture and flooring. Making a mistake when covering your floors or furniture can cost you big time, and making sure there are no vulnerabilities where your floor and wall meet can be tricky. 


Additionally, if you do not have experience painting interior or exterior spaces, it can be difficult to get right on your first try. You will want to get an even distribution of paint on your walls, which can leave you with an uneven tone. While you may save a few dollars painting your home on your own, the amount of time you will spend on the project can end up making it not worth it. No one wants to live in the middle of a remodel for weeks at a time. Remember, when you hire professional painters you will have a team of people with experience, who come in and get the job done efficiently. If you are planning to paint your entire home, this can take you weeks to get done, especially if you are doing it solo. The bigger the space you are painting the more time you can expect to spend. Houston Residential Painters can quickly update your space and leave you with a flawless finish without all of the hassles. 


    Painting Comes With Risks: It doesn’t matter if you are painting the interior or exterior of your home, there will be risks involved. For some people the bending and lifting can be difficult on their backs, however, the main risks that are associated with painting your home include a ladder. Many people do not consider the fact that painting their own home can put them into compromising positions, several feet off the ground. If you have high ceilings or a home with multiple stories, this just increases your chances of experiencing an injury. 


Professional painters spend a lot of time going up and down large ladders, carrying heavy paint, and long poles. For someone who lacks experience with ladders, navigating this can be difficult. When painting the exterior of a home, painters must climb on roofs, hang out of windows, and put themselves in other potentially dangerous positions in order to reach all of the necessary areas of their home. While the majority of your painting may be able to be completed with your feet safely planted on the ground, the parts that require you to be at higher lengths are more risky and unavoidable. When you work with a professional painter, who has decades of experience, you can rest easy knowing that you are safe and they have the experience needed to avoid most hazards.

    Messy Paint Can Ruin A Room: Painting your home seems so simple, you’ve seen it done on TV dozens of times, and have watched videos online that make it look easy…but is it? Unfortunately, many people spend the time and money to paint their own homes just to be dissatisfied with the outcome. It can be costly to buy all of the supplies, and dedicate days of your life to a project, just to be disappointed with how it looks. Why spend all of that money to be left with a messy paint job?


When you work with a professional painting team, you know you are getting a quality painting job every time. At Houston Residential Painters we aren’t done with your space until you are completely satisfied. As professionals, we know that certain areas of your home, such as the small gaps underside paneling or above a door, take extra time to look right and when improperly painted can throw the look of your entire room. Don’t sacrifice the quality of your space, contact our team to learn more about the services we offer today. 


    The Cost of Supplies: As mentioned above, in order to properly paint your home, you are going to need more than just paint and a few brushes. You are going to need paintbrushes, paint rollers, tarps, plastic coverings, tape, and the big one…a ladder. These expenses can quickly add up and using some of them comes with a learning curve. Taking on a major project, like say, painting your entire house, may not be the best time to get comfortable with using a 6ft+ ladder. Getting a safe and secure ladder alone can cost you a couple of hundred dollars. If you have a larger home, a 6ft ladder may not cut it. Save yourself the money and the risk when you work with a professional painting company.
