Hire A Professional Painter or DIY?

Q: I want to paint a few rooms in my house. Should I hire a professional painter or do it myself? 

A: When the time comes to paint the interior of your home, you need to ensure it is done the right way so it looks the best it possibly can.

Many DIYers think “why hire a professional painter when I can do it myself?” While there may be some projects that are small enough to do well and in a timely manner, most paint projects would benefit from hiring a professional. Not only will it be done well, but it will also be done quickly.

Professional Painters Painting a Kitchen

These few tips will describe what is involved with painting the interior of a house and why hiring a professional painter might be worth the cost.  

Understand What Goes into Painting a House

Before the interior of a house is painted, there needs to be a lot of prep work.

  • Furniture needs to be moved and protected
  • Floors need to be covered.
  • The trim, windows, outlets, and other features on the wall that won’t be painted need to be taped.
  • The walls need to be prepped: nail holes, sanding or removing wallpaper.

All of these steps take time and effort. Professional painters know how to do it properly and quickly. Read this quick guide on what to ask a professional painter and to learn more about what Paintzen painters can do.
