When thinking about painting your home, choosing between doing it yourself or hiring professional painters may be a decision you’re trying to make. Both have their benefits. Doing it yourself may save you money, make you feel more accomplished, and you may actually enjoy it. Hiring a professional to do it will give you a better outcome and ultimately save you time, stress, and energy. To find out which option is best for you, take a look at the following considerations.
Do You Have Experience?
If you have experience painting your home or anyone else’s home, you may feel the urge to take on this challenge again. Or, depending on your previous experience, you may be leaning towards handing that headache off to someone else. Having experience in painting makes the job easier, faster, and cleaner. Foothills Painting has completed over 500 homes.
Will You Need to Purchase Any Tools?
If you have never painted your home before, you will need to purchase a lot of new tools in order to complete the job properly. Some of the required equipment includes sandpaper, a scraper, brush, roller, extension pole, painter’s tape, tarps, paint trays, paint can openers, primer, and more. Buying these supplies can be costly at first, but if you end up doing a lot of painting over the years it can be worth it. If you are reluctant to buy all of this new equipment, then hiring a professional painter may be for you.
Do You Understand the Size of Your Project?
The size of the job can be a big factor when deciding on painting yourself or hiring someone else. If it is just one small room, you may be more inclined to get the job done yourself. If you need your entire home painted, it can save a lot of time and effort to hire a professional. Assess your own situation and make a practical decision based on your skill level, patience, time, and energy.
Do You Have Enough Time?
Time is a luxury. Most people don’t have enough of it on a regular day. But throw in painting your house and you might feel like you will never have free time. If you are hoping to paint your house slowly and in small chunks after work, you may want to rethink your plan. This can easily burn you out and leave your project unfinished. Foothills Painting has a crew of people ready to get your job done in a timely manner.
Before you start your painting job or hire a professional, take some time to decide what is right for you. If you have a lot of extra time for a job that is a reasonable size and you already have all the supplies you need, you may want to tackle it yourself. If you are busy with work, have never painted a house before, and want the job done right the first time, then you definitely need to contact Foothills Painting.
