Interior house painting is sometimes considered a typical DIY home improvement. For those who have a higher level of skill and the time, DIY could work for simple paint jobs. However, in many instances, hiring a professional painting company is the best choice.
HI-TECH Painting Ltd. in Calgary is a skilled and experienced painting contractor that offers residential and commercial services. They share three reasons why you should hire a professional for your significant interior painting project:
You don’t have the know-how or the time
One of the biggest reasons homeowners opt for a professional paint job is that they aren’t confident in their DIY painting skills. Or, they don’t have time and don’t want to make time. Painting a home requires skills that only come with years of practice. Proper surface preparation, attention to detail, neat and straight cut-in lines, and access to the best tools and products are what you’ll get with a professional painter. Plus, they do this every day and are fast and efficient. A professional painting team can complete your project in a fraction of the time compared to a DIY job.
Some paint jobs can be hazardous
If you have high ceilings or other hard-to-reach areas in your home, safety can be an issue with a DIY paint job. So if you can’t comfortably reach areas of the wall with a step ladder, you shouldn’t be tackling this project. You’ll likely make messy mistakes as you struggle to reach areas of the wall. Plus, you are putting yourself at risk of injury from falling or straining your body. Don’t risk it. Hire a pro instead.
Sometimes walls need repair or special prep
If the walls are in bad shape and you can’t fix them with a bit of filler, it’s time to call a pro. Professional help is especially needed if you’ve noticed watermarks, water damage, mould or mildew. These signs mean there was a leak or something still is leaking, and you might need plumbing and drywall repair before any painting can start. While few nicks in the wall aren’t a big deal, but any significant holes or damage to the wall, and you should bring in a professional company.
Also, if your home is older and you’re not sure if your current walls have lead-based paint on them, you need to call in a professional. This type of paint needs stripping before the new coat goes on. If it is sanded or scuffed, you could put yourself at risk of lead poisoning. Without proper striping and prep of this type of paint, your new paint won’t adhere properly. Stripping lead paint can be a big and hazardous job that only a professional painting company should handle.
