It’s Worth Your Time and Money To Hire a Professional Painter

In the last few months of quarantine, you’ve probably become pretty handy with your screwdriver, paintbrush and hammer. During lockdown, when we couldn’t have tradespeople in our homes, DIY skills became a necessity. From jiggly doorknobs to clogged toilets, we’ve done it all.

But now that the world is opening back up (big sigh of relief), DIYing is no longer your only option – now you can get back to Do It for Me-ing (DIFM). Here are 5 reasons you might choose to hire professional painters rather than breaking out that paint roller again.

You’ll Get a Top-Quality Job

At Paintzen, we only work with top-rated pros in your area. That means, while you were putting in 10,000 hours to become a master of your job, our painters were doing the same with theirs. Our teams know:

  • How to prep walls so paint lasts longer
  • Which sheens to apply for every room
  • The right color solution for each space
  • Which paints will work best on every surface (walls, ceiling, trim and exteriors, too)

All this adds up to getting a flawless result, every time.

They’ll Do the Tough Projects Right

Cabinets, trim, home exteriors – these items are notoriously hard to paint well, either because of the skill required or because of the scope of the project. Hiring a pro means you’ll get the best results, even if your home is tall, your cabinets have six coats of paint, or you just don’t want to buy the tools needed to do a one-time job.

They’re Licensed and Insured

This doesn’t seem like a big deal, especially if you’re the one doing the work, right? But this is one of the best reasons to hire a pro. In the unlikely event something happened during your paint job, they’ll cover the accident. That gives you peace of mind and saves you the cost and hassle of an insurance claim.

They’re Color Pros

Experienced painters have seen every color of paint on every surface you can imagine. They know which colors will accentuate your home’s architecture, which will match your décor, and which net you more money when you sell (yep, that’s a thing). You’ll get their knowledge and expertise, but you’ll also get someone who has helped homeowners and designers get the look of their dreams.

You’ll Save Time

From prep to cleanup (ugh, cleanup), going with a pro saves time. Painting takes hours or days, even when you’re doing a small room. Painting an exterior? Could take weeks when you’re working it in between everything else.

Hiring a pro means you can spend time doing what you love, instead of getting a sore arm, battling frustration when your lines aren’t straight, or opening the paint can after the kids go to bed. And all that stuff you hate – taping, sanding, scraping, caulking, rinsing rollers – gets done by a pro. You chill; they paint. Seems fair.

So, now that DIYing isn’t our only option, why not consider DIFMing and handing over your paint job to the pros? Check out our services. We’re back in action and we’d be glad to help.
