Deciding to DIY or Hire Professional Painters

Decorating the interior of your home or business is an exciting venture that requires careful planning. Just as you would be decisive when choosing which furniture best suits the theme of each room, so should you take the time to consider the best way that your walls can be painted. Naturally, you want to be assured that the painting job will be completed to a high quality and at a fairly good price. After all, pair the right type of paint with high-quality workmanship and you will get a paint job that not only looks great but can also withstand the test of time. While you can always re-paint the walls if you make mistakes, hiring experienced professional painters can save you a lot of time and money while providing a return on investment. To help you decide whether to do the painting job yourself or hire professional painters, consider these factors below.

Environmental Factors

We are lucky to have countless sunny days and access to beautiful public beaches. However, those who live near the coast will have likely noticed that natural coastal conditions can cause wall paint to deteriorate more quickly than if the building were located inland. The salty air can cause the paint of your exterior walls to chip and peel, while the higher humidity levels can encourage the growth of mold that eats away at your paint. Additionally, limited protection from the sun’s strong rays speeds up the fading of paint’s color, while sand particles traveling in the wind can stick to your freshly painted walls.

Without the proper knowledge of preventative measures and reparation techniques that professional painters have, you could be confronted with a disastrous end result or long-term issues if you attempt the painting project yourself. Hiring a local professional painting company means that you can rely on them to detect issues like mold growth before they get out of hand, and even receive advice on the best methods and products to help prevent such issues in the first place. By relying on the painting services of expert residential and commercial painters like us, you can rest assured that careful planning, preparation, and assessment of your building for structural issues are completed to the highest standards before we even begin to paint.

Quality Control

Partnering up with a painting service like ours can come with perks like complementary color consulting, a few years’ worths of quality workmanship warranty, and continued maintenance. Getting professional input on which colors and styles will best suit the walls of your building can make a world of difference when giving your home or workspace a facelift. When you hire our services, you also receive a Color Consultancy service at no extra charge upon acceptance of our quotation that is over a certain value. Our Consultant is a fully qualified Interior Decorator who can provide expert advice on paint colors. We also provide our customers with the option to sample any shades of paint you are considering on your walls before committing. We also offer 5 years workmanship warranty for your peace of mind.

If your paint starts to crack or bubble within the warranty period, you can seek out the same professional painters to fix the problem for free within reason. And while there are a number of ways to extend the life of your wall paint, it is a good idea to consult an industry expert before deciding on any coatings or special finishes for your walls. Here at Painters Ottawa, we use only the highest quality paint so you can trust that you are getting a high-quality product. These perks should provide you with even more assurance that hiring professional painters for the job is a worthwhile investment that yields high-quality, consistent results.

Safety and Expertise

Unless you have painted many houses previously and have the necessary tools for your painting job, you may find yourself having to spend more money finding the right tools for your project. Additionally, things can go awry if you are trying to balance on a ladder while painting high ceilings or the exterior of your building. Hiring an industry professional painting company for the painting project will ensure that the project will be completed safely by experienced business and house painters.
