If you have already accomplished every task on your spring cleaning list, you may be looking for other ways to beautify your home on both the inside or the exterior. A new coat of paint can drastically change the look of your home, whether it is a new color in the living room or a fresh new look on the shutters outside. Painting a room a different color can make it seem more open, have more light and even look bigger. Painting the outside of your home can give it more curb appeal, add value to your home and make it look like new. Whether you choose one or the other, or are feeling ambitious at tackling both, you are going to be faced with the decision on how to get the job done. There is always the do it yourself approach or the option of hiring a professional painter.
House Painting Tools & Equipment
Taking on the job of painting by yourself may seem like an easy task, however when you begin to think about all the materials that you will need, it may begin to feel a bit overwhelming. Materials that are needed to paint the inside of a home include primer, paint, paint brushes, drop clothes, painters tape, rollers and roller trays. Other additional materials may be needed. An outdoor job will most likely require the same materials in addition to a ladder, an extension ladder depending on how many stories your home is, outdoor paint and possibly even a machine that spray the paint out. The cost of materials can quickly add up. One aspect of painting a home that most people often overlook is the time it will take to complete the job from start to finish.
Advantages of Hiring a Professional Painter
Hiring a professional painter has many benefits. A professional painter will focus on the task at hand and get the job done, often in just one to two days. On average, a homeowner who takes on the task by themselves usually spends up to a month on an exterior paint job. One out of five people who decide to do the job on their own actually end up hiring a professional painter to come in and finish the job. During a professional paint job, if something happens to go wrong, the company is covered by insurance and can make things right. Most homeowners believe that painting is very easy, reality is a different story. Painting requires skill, the proper tools and the correct type of paint depending on the surface that is being painted. Another giant job of painting is taping off everything that will not be painted. This is a very meticulous task, and if not done properly will result in over spray and unwanted areas of painted walls or house.
