Professional Vs. DIY Painting

Professional Vs. DIY Painting

To make your choice easier, we’ll compare the differences between DIY and professional painting jobs.

If you’re going to paint your house, there are a lot of considerations you’ll have to make. To start, you’ll want to determine if you’re going to tackle the job yourself or if you want to hire a professional painting company to handle everything. To make your choice easier, we’ll compare the differences between DIY and professional painting jobs.

DIY Painting

Some people find painting to be therapeutic. For those who enjoy it, doing it yourself can be a decent option. You have complete control over how you want to paint your house. However, you’re stuck with all of the labor. This means you have to take time out of your day to handle all of the work.

On top of that, you’re the one who is responsible for gathering all of the materials for the job. These costs can add up. You’ll need paint brushes, a ladder for hard-to-reach places, tarps to keep your furniture safe, and paint rollers. On top of that, you’ll need to get the walls ready, prime your surfaces, and potentially apply multiple coats of paint. This can add up to more work than most people initially expect. You also can’t get a refund for the materials you buy if you don’t like the end result. That means it has to be done perfectly the first time, or else you waste a tremendous amount of time and money.

Professional Painting

By hiring a professional painting company, all of the hard work that comes with painting a house now falls on their shoulders, not yours. This frees you up to tackle other tasks you may have for the day, or you can use that time to unwind and relax.

Professionals come with their own supplies, meaning you don’t have to spend the time or money gathering them up yourself. This is especially handy after the job is finished because you don’t have to find a place to store rollers and brushes if the painting company leaves with them on the way out.

Professional painting companies will also offer satisfaction guarantees (if they are worth the money you spend hiring them). This means that they won’t rest until your painting job is done to your liking. You will no longer have to worry about wasting money on materials in the event that the finished product isn’t to your liking. You know for certain that the money you spend will guarantee you a solid paint job.
