House painting seems like a simple enough task that many homeowners choose to do it themselves. However, professional painters offer certain advantages that you should consider before taking the DIY route.
1. Quality Materials
Let’s start with the paint and other materials used for house painting. Professional painters like us have access to a wider selection of paints – more than what you can get at retail stores – which can let you get the exact color that you need for your home. We can mix colors accurately and consistently, regardless of the size of the area to be painted. We also use durable and long-lasting finishes that do not deteriorate for a long time.
2. Proper Painting Procedures
To get the best results, we follow proper painting procedures. We take care to make sure the areas to be painted – or, more accurately, the areas not to be painted = are prepared before we open our first can of paint. We scrape, fill, sand and clean the surfaces to be painted before we apply a layer of primer. We also make sure that the appropriate type of paint is used on the surface being painted.
3. Workmanship Guarantee
Mistakes can happen, even with a task as simple as house painting. With DIY, you’d have to pay for correcting your mistakes out of your own pocket or live with them. But with painting professionals, you can have peace of mind, thanks to workmanship guarantees. While professionals are less likely to make mistakes, you won’t have to spend a single cent for corrections in case they do.
4. Zero Risks to Safety
Painting certain parts of the house may require climbing ladders, which can increase the risks to your safety. Professional painters have the training and equipment to ensure our safety at work. We use harnesses, anchored ladders and other types of protective gear to minimize the risks of falling. We also conduct periodic safety training to maintain safety awareness. And, in case of worksite injury, our insurance coverage includes workers’ compensation.
