A new coat of paint can transform the appearance of a room in a matter of a few hours. But when you are painting your whole house, should you do it yourself or trust an expert? The professionals at HBK Constructions are your trusted source for all your house painting needs.
5 Reasons Why You Should Hire Experts To Paint Your Home
Painting takes a lot of skill, patience, and attention to detail. Even if you can find the time to do it yourself, there are many benefits to hiring a professional. Here are five reasons why you should trust the experts for your project:
They Have The Right Tools For The Job
Painting requires much more than a brush and a can of paint. A professional will have everything needed for setting up to do the job neatly and supplies required for the finishing touches. Some common things required to paint a house include:
- Paintbrushes of various sizes and angles
- Roller with extender
- Paint tray
- Painters tape
- Drop cloths
- Caulk gun
- Spraying tools
- Safety gear
They Have An Attention To Detail
Using a paint roller may not be rocket science, but it does take great skill to paint a house. Tackling your trim and baseboards and cutting in around edges and ceilings takes a steady hand and a lot of patience. A professional will have excellent attention to detail to ensure the job gets done perfectly.
They Are Licensed, Insured, And Bonded
Unfortunately, accidents happen from time to time. You may not think of painting as a dangerous task, but it does pose some risks. It requires heavy lifting as you must move furniture away from the walls. Moving beds, couches, and dressers is not easy to do on your own and may lead to injury.
Painting also requires climbing a ladder. Professionals have the skills and experience climbing a ladder with the tools they need to paint high ceilings. An inexperienced person may fall and get injured. They may spill paint and ruin furniture or flooring. An expert is less likely to make this sort of mistake, but if they do, they are licensed, insured, and bonded so they can make things right.
They Save You Time
Painting is a time-consuming chore. A lot of prep work goes into preparing the walls before you can begin. You must cover any holes with spackle and wait for it to dry before you can sand it. The walls must be free from dust and moisture. You have to tape off trim and cover furniture and flooring.
There are many steps you must complete before you begin painting. Then you have to wait for the paint to dry before applying your second coat. Lastly, you have to spend time cleaning up and rinsing your brushes and rollers. Hiring an expert saves you time, and they can get the task done more quickly.
They Have the Knowledge and Experience
What is the correct type of brush to use? Which finish of paint do you need? Latex or oil-based? Eggshell, semi-gloss, or satin? With so many brands, colors, and finishes to choose from, how do you know you are picking the best one for each room? An expert knows exactly what is needed to make each room look its best.
