Some paint jobs, interior ones especially, can be do-it-yourself projects. If you are planning to paint, consider these reasons why you might hire a professional. Some are for convenience and some are for your safety. Whatever the project, if you live in the North Bay, read and consider before you make the decision between DIY and calling a professional painter in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, or Napa County.
5 OF THE MANY REASONS TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PAINTER
“Money? But won’t I save money doing it myself?” You might save some money, but when you call professional painters in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, or Napa County for quotes, remember not to compare the figure they give you with zero. By the time you buy paint, tarps, cleaner, primer, rollers, tape, and sanders, you will have spent a good portion of what you’d pay a professional. Not to mention that your walls or ceiling might need retexturing first.
Most people, if they have the money to spend, prefer to save themselves time by hiring a professional. We don’t need to explain how busy you are. You know!
Extra Difficult Job
If you are painting a surface that needs extra preparation or if you have high ceilings or other hard-to-reach places that may be dangerous to get to, it’s definitely worth calling a professional.
Even with some of the low VOC low odor paints we have today, a lot of people are sensitive and think it’s worth it to call a professional just so they can clear out of the house and not come back until the odor is gone.
Just because you can do it yourself doesn’t mean that your home will necessarily come out looking the same as if a professional painted it. If someone in your family (we won’t name names) is thinking of painting the house, but you are unsure what their outcome will be, maybe gently mention the other reasons we listed above and hope they’ll hire a professional instead. Remind them that it will still cost a significant amount of money, that the job will take up a lot of their time, and that your high ceilings will be dangerous to reach.
