Although DIYing your paint job can save you money, the result may be more expensive than what you planned to spend. Many homeowners who consider doing their painting will have a budget. But, because of underestimating the number of materials needed to paint their home, it ends up costing them more. If you include the cost of rollers and tape, brushes, drop cloths (or purchases), as well as paint and tool rental, you might find yourself paying more than you think. It is possible to spend a lot of time and money going to the hardware stores for paint, tape, or another brush. Soon your expenses will be even higher. Don’t forget to include all the time that you’re spending on a job you don’t know-how. How valuable is your time? Keep in mind that time is not money. It may seem like a big expense to hire pros to handle your project but it is not much more than trying DIY.
You might think that painting a few rooms is an easy task. But what if your goal is to paint the entire house or multiple rooms? Many people have to balance work, kids, and daily life. Therefore, the painting would take more time than a single day. Remember to cover floors, furniture, windows, and other areas before you begin painting. Before you start painting, you’ll need to get the holes repaired and sanded. The last thing you want is to come home to endless hours of work after a hard day. While it might take you a week to finish, professional Exterior Painting Services in Phoenix can usually complete the task in a matter of days.
Professionals & Experience
It’s important to hire a painting company because they’re experts in the field. We only hire people who have a specialization in painting and prepping. These individuals have vast experience and can do work that is beyond what an amateur painter would be able to do. They can tell you how to tape edges and paint straight lines. They also know which paintbrush or roller to use depending upon the surface. The result is a job that lasts, and won’t have to be done again as soon as possible. This saves money.
Tools & Equipment
Although you might have one or two paintbrushes lying around in your garage you won’t be able to use them all for your project. High-quality rollers and brushes, ladders and paint sprayers, extension poles and caulk guns, drop cloths, scaffolding and other tools are all necessary to complete your project. The right tools will ensure that the job is done efficiently and quickly. Painting companies have all the necessary tools and equipment and don’t need to rent or make trips to the hardware stores to paint.
Trade Has Its Benefits
Painting companies often have contractor accounts with their local paint stores. These accounts give them access to discounts and deals that homeowners might not get as they aren’t frequenting these stores or don’t purchase paint in bulk. We can access a greater range of tools and paints because we are regular customers.
You Don’t Need To Be Concerned About Cleaning Up
It is important to complete the clean-up after your paint project is completed. Hiring a professional to handle your painting project will save you the hassle of cleaning up afterward. Pro painters will know how to dispose of paint, thinners, or other materials. You can’t throw away solvents or paint that has been used, as they count as hazardous household waste. You won’t have to worry about the clean-up after the job is done. Instead, you can relax and enjoy your newly painted home.
Licensed And Insured
A professional painting company needs to be licensed and insured. This will give you confidence in hiring this company. It also provides additional protection for you and them if there is an accident or other problems. An unlicensed or uninsured paint company will not be held to the same standards. The result is a lower quality job, and they can leave the job as they please, with no recourse.
