Why Hire House Painters in Whitby

While talking to a customer in Whitby, I got the question "painting a house is easy, right?" I wanted to take a minute to address the concern I have with these type of questions.

Do it yourself, or more commonly known as DIY, interior and exterior house painting is definitely an option in Whitby. I have seen some amazing painting done by people who have minimal experience. With painting, a lot of time and effort is needed to learn how to paint a house. The reason I became a house painter is because with that time and effort, you could learn how to paint the interior and exterior of a whitby house and when you're an expert at anything, people are willing to spend a little extra money to get the job done right. Heck, painting is kinda fun! I won’t discourage anyone from painting their own home, but what I do recommend is that you get someone to do the job who has the intent and desire to do the job well. It can cause a nightmare to have a sloppy painting job done which lowers the value of your home and creates more time and money to fix.
Before you consider doing a house painting job yourself we always recommend asking yourself 3 simple questions
1. Do I have the ability/tools to paint my house?
There is no end of grief which follows trying to paint a house when you don’t have the skills or ability to paint a house. Without even mentioning the issues you will face by not having the right tools, there will just be a constant headache. I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to have to paint a house if they didn’t have the right tools.
2. Do I have the time to paint my house?
Many people are often surprised at how long it actually takes to paint a full home. Before you read this line, ask yourself how long you think it will take one person (you) to paint your house if you worked full time on it. As a house painter who has done a full job on my own, I can tell you it will take roughly 3-4 days to get the job done correctly. Do you have this much time to set aside for the job?
3. Can you afford mistakes?
The most common time we paint someone’s house is when they are about to move, or trying to increase the value of their home. In both these cases, there isn’t a lot of room for mistakes. If you had damage on your home because you wanted to paint it, would this cause a major crisis? Paint spills on the carpet or the roof can turn into major problems and you need to be prepared to deal with them.
