Why Hire a Professional Painter?
In this great technological age, with access to vast DIY websites, television networks devoted to home improvements, and YouTube channels that can show you how to do just about anything you could possibly want to do to your home, you may wonder why any one would pay the extra money to have their home painted by professionals. It seems like an easy enough task. Once you’ve gone through the detailed process of choosing a paint color, don’t let yourself be deceived into thinking that the hard part is over and now you can just slap the color on the walls. There’s a lot more that goes into painting your home than you realize. Since the way your home looks matters enough that you want to paint it, it will be worth it to have someone who knows what they’re doing get the job done properly. Here’s why:
Quality Work Matters
The goal of repainting your home isn’t merely to change the color of the walls, but rather to increase the home’s value. Having your home professionally painted affords you quality work that will increase the resale value of your home. Whether your home is currently on the market or you’re just considering selling, your home’s value is probably something you’ve thought a lot about. Even if you’re not moving from this home, the value of your home should be of the utmost importance to you. A professional paint job will last longer and look better.
What the home improvement channels and YouTube videos can’t teach you is how to spot the problems. You can certainly learn how to properly use a brush and apply paint smoothly, but there are other factors that come with updating your home’s paint that can make a huge difference. Professional painters inspect your home carefully before they begin painting. They’re able to spot any rot, decay, or structural defect that may need repair before you begin painting. They can also provide you the materials you will need to protect your home from water vapor damage that leads to rot and structural damage. This will ensure that the job gets done the right way the first time, saving you time and money.
Professional Opinions and Innovations
Professional painters know the best techniques and the latest technologies to make your home look its very best. They have not only seen the wall treatment they used on the latest episode of your favorite home improvement show, they’ve done it! They can tell you all about how things work and if things will work in your space. From paint types to various finishes, they’ve used it all and they’ll know easily after viewing your space and hearing what you’re hoping it will look like the best way to get you there.
The Right Tools for the Job
Drop cloths, paint buckets, painter’s tape, ladders, sprayers, brushes, and more. There are a lot of supplies used in the business of painting houses. You can save yourself the expense of buying a tool you’ll only use a few times by hiring a professional who brings their own. Not only will a professional bring their own (top of the line) tools, but they will know best how to use those tools. At Express Yourself Paint, we use a state of the art sprayer among many other tools to give your walls a flawless, glossy finish.
In most cases, people end up hiring professionals to come in anyway to clean up the mess they’ve made or problems they’ve run into from trying to do it themselves. It costs you both time and money to have the same walls painted over again. From preparing your space, to applying the paint, to cleaning up afterward, a professional can take care of it all!
