A lot of people look at a yet-to-be-completed painting project and think that DIY is the only way to make the project financially feasible. “How hard could it be,” they say, hands on hips, staring at the bare walls of the property. They imagine themselves wearing faded overalls, gingerly brushing paint onto the ceiling from the top rung of a ladder, pausing to dab sweat from the brow. They imagine a job completed in a weekend, without needing any further work for many years to come.
The problem is, this beautiful image is rarely what a DIY home painting project looks like in reality. Interior painting and exterior painting have their unique requirements and challenges, but both of them can be too much for a single DIY painter. Another way to look at it is in terms of time and money. Believe it or not, hiring professional painting contractors can save you money over doing the job all by yourself, or with a crew of friends you can assemble.
Why Professional Painting Pays For Itself
At the end of the day, whether you paint on your own or hire professionals is up to you. You may have what it takes to get your project completed at a high level of quality.
