Does It Really Make Sense to Paint Your Own Home?

Despite how easy all those home improvement shows make it look, painting a house is a lot of work. When you factor in all the tools and equipment you need to do a really good job, it may not make sense to tackle this job yourself.

Here are some questions you may want to ask yourself before taking on a painting project.

  • Scared of heights? If you’ve got two stories, an older home with dormers windows, turrets, or other tall features, that’s a job best left to the pros. We’ve got the ladders and scaffolding needed to do the job safely.
  • Does your house need extensive preparation? If you’ve got peeling paint or drywall, rot, mildew or “alligatoring” on the exterior of your home, you’ll probably spend even more time prepping the surface than actually rolling paint. It’s not nearly as much fun as it sounds like.
  • When was the last time your walls had a thorough cleaning? While you probably don’t want to use a power washer indoors, you could rent one to take care of the outside. On the inside of your house, you’ll need to use a scrub brush and some elbow grease to get the surface ready.
  • Who’s got the time or energy to paint? Well, we do. But for most of our customers, by the time they work all week and run all weekend, there’s no time left for painting. For busy families, it makes more sense to hire the pros for this job, don’t you think?
