Research done, You want to “do it yourself” for a new look to your home. But there is a time to understand that you need a professional Painting Contractor.
The warmth and heat in Dallas Fort Worth Texas, you have to think twice before getting your self in a mess of painting the house your self.
So you took a look around and decided you just can’t stand the years old and dingy white that has covered every wall in your house since you moved in. From there you decided you could probably save some money by doing the work yourself, and that is a true statement… sometimes.
However, no matter how good you might be, there comes a time when you just need to hire a painting contractor and let the professionals do their thing.
Size really DOES matter!
If you are painting just one wall or a fairly small room, you may well save some money by doing the work yourself. On the other hand, the bigger the job gets, the more likely an amateur is to make extremely costly mistakes.
Painting just one room requires moving everything out, risking that precious items or other walls in the house will get damaged. Then there is the cleaning, sanding, and taping that must be done right or the entire paint job will need to be completely redone.
Finally, protecting the things that can not or might not be removed from the room such as carpeting or trim has to be watched constantly and carefully, or you will be buying more paint to fix the trim or new carpet because of that gallon that just splashed all over the floor.
Now multiply those risks by the number of rooms, and very quickly you can find yourself spending WAY more than you ever would have saved by not hiring a professional.
Complexity Is Beautiful… and Difficult.
If your tastes run to more than a couple of coats of paint, a professional is probably your best bet to ensure the look you want is what you actually end up with. Faux finishes, borders, intricate trim, chair rail color shifts, and numerous other elegant ways to make your home reflect your personality are all things that can quickly lead to frustration and mistakes by the amateur painter.
How often have you seen those “nailed it” memes where someone tried some complex DIY project and their finished product looks nothing like what they were trying to do? You need to carefully consider if the walls of your home are where you want to test out your DIY abilities when it comes to complex finishes. Especially since most of those beautiful finishes have layers of paint or glue that will require you to hire a professional to remove and replace, anyway.
