Doing it Right
Remember how shiny and new your house looked when you first moved in? Over the years you have created some wonderful memories, but as you look around, you think that your home could really use a fresh coat of paint. There was the day your toddler found a stray permanent marker many years ago and “decorated” the wall. The quick cover-up you did was fine, but now his old “art” is bleeding through the patchwork. Then came the teen years when posters were taped to bedroom walls. Sunlight streaming through the dining room window has faded the paint on the other side of the room. And of course, your old dog was once a rambunctious puppy that chewed around the baseboards.
It is time to paint, and you are wondering if you can do the job yourself.
The answer is, yes, you can. However, do not run down to the home improvement store just yet because there are a few great reasons why hiring a professional painter is a much better idea than a DIY project.

There is a lot more to painting a house than buying some brushes and rollers. Professionals understand the scope of the project and know how to do the job quickly. If you choose to do the painting, you will have to balance this with work, family, chores, and all the other things that keep you busy. The job will take significantly longer than you think and entail a lot more work than you may have bargained for. A professional eliminates the stress.
Professional painters arrive on the job with all the tools they need – caulk, patching tools, furniture covers, tape, and spraying tools. This amounts to significant savings for you because you do not have to purchase these things or try to re-sell them once the painting is done.
