• Reasons not to DIY a painting job

    1 Oct 2018

  • There were times that you might be tempted to take the DIY route instead of hiring professional painters. Unfortunately, many home and business owners who do opt to do it themselves find that painting is much more laborious and more time-consuming than they initially thought.
     
    Here are our top some reasons why you shouldn’t DIY. We suggest considering each of these points before making a final decision.
     

     

    House painting can be dangerous.

     
    Believe it or not, DIY painting can be a dangerous task to undertake, especially if you are an inexperienced painter. When interior painting, you will need to reach high ceilings, and this usually means painting with a steady hand while balancing on a ladder. When exterior painting, you will need to be extra careful, as uneven outdoor services (such as grass or gravel) can cause your ladder to wobble.
    As professional painters, we have over a decade of experience painting interiors and exteriors. We know how to reach tricky areas best and have the tools and equipment necessary to produce perfect results.
     

     

    DIY painting takes much longer
     
    House painting can be a time-consuming job, especially if you haven’t painted before. You will need to take time out of your routine life (including possible time off work) to complete the job. Being able to paint fast yet accurately comes with experience. We always work promptly to ensure the job gets done as soon as possible, without cutting corners.
     

     

    Professionals know how to protect your floor and belongings.

     
    When interior painting, you risk damaging your floor and belongings with paint. Splatters, stains, and splashes of paint can be a real pain to remove. Professional painters like us know exactly how to protect your furniture and floor from paint, so there’s no need to worry!
     

     

    Professional painters know colours.

     
    Choosing the wrong colour can be a costly mistake. We know colour and can help you decide on the perfect shade for your residential or commercial property.
     

     

    Professional painters deliver quality.

     
    You can’t expect someone who has never cooked a soufflé before to nail it the first time, right? However, a skilled chef could cook one up in no time. The same goes for house painting. Proper painting requires skill and craftsmanship that comes from years of experience and the correct knowledge.
    We know painting, and It’s our passion. For a superior quality finish, there’s no way a DIY job could stand against a professional finish.
