I stopped employing a professional house painter for years simply by painting my house myself. The only thing was, well, every couple of years I had to paint my room. And the worst thing is that the house didn’t even look like it was newly finished, even after renovation. Painting hours and hours essentially resulted in a light coating that helped to cover last year’s flaking paint. Eventually, I broke down and hired a contractor for house-painting.If you’re looking for more tips, When to choose a contractor has it for you.
I studied siding before I employed house painters. Metal siding looked good and was long lasting but the cost was unbelievably costly. Also, vinyl siding looked good, but wasn’t any cheaper and doesn’t have the durability. And frankly, I didn’t like the idea of placing some form of shell around my house. A good paint job is long-lastingly elegant and modern, and has a far more organic look.
One thing I was reminded of when the painting contractor came and we went through the job is that paint is not just color on your walls-paint that is correctly applied serves to protect your home’s exterior. In the end, exposed wood succumbs to the weather. Masonite or other wood items that have been poorly painted can swell and rot over time with exposure to the elements. Experienced house painting contractors have the expertise to ensure that the paint you are using holds up over time and spreads it in a manner that seals and protects the building material from outside.
Aside from functionality, the professional house painters are doing just a much better job-in far less time. The trim was wavy when I was painting, I always had to go back and re-cover the drips and my clothes and I would be a mess. When the painting contractors came out, they threw up scaffolding, laid down some drop cloths, and I basically had a brand new house just a few days later. The paint shone brightly, the edges were all straight and accurate, and every few days I did not discover missed spots like I did when I painted. Clearly, when I bought a five-gallon bucket of cheap paint and a roller, the job cost more than it had, but the end result was amazing! And the best thing is that I didn’t have to raise a finger and I’ve got a beautiful house that’s going to stay that way for years to come.
