3 Benefits Of Hiring A Professional Painter For Your Home in Killingworth Ct

kathy facebook imagedave's photoIt’s no secret that many homeowners like to try and tackle home improvement projects themselves. Let’s be honest, though, unless your Chip or Joanna Gaines from HDTV’s Fixer Upper, chances are you’re not quite sure you know what you’re doing. While the internet is a great resource full of endless information, you may not be able to teach yourself how to paint a room (well) from doing a couple hours of research. If this sounds like you – it may be time to call a professional house painter  to come get the job done. You’ll save yourself time, headaches, and energy!

Here are some tips for 3 Benefits Of Hiring A Professional Painter For Your Home in Killingworth Ct

 1.Safety and Equipment

Depending on when your home was built, you could have paint that contains lead. Typically, this is found in older homes, built prior to the 1970’s. But, it can be very dangerous to your health if you don’t know how to take the proper safety precautions. In fact, certain methods of removing lead paint can release more lead particles – increasing the exposure to lead.  Not only does a professional house painter know the proper techniques to use in a sticky situation like this, they know just the right safety measures to take, and they have the right equipment to do so.

 2.Knowledge and Experience

Maybe you’ve painted a couple walls and ceilings, or maybe you’re a little more experienced and have been down this road several times. No matter how many years you’ve been painting your house, chances are a professional house painter will still have more experience than you. There isn’t anything wrong with that – it is their profession after all, but for people who like to do things themselves it can feel intimidating to ask someone else for help. Just remember; a professional house painter or house painting company probably paints multiple houses and projects per day. Interior and exterior house painters are so used to setting up for a house painting  job, perfecting the job, and cleaning up afterwards that most professionals house painters  are usually able to complete certain projects within a few hours! Of course this depends on what you’re asking them to do, but you can guarantee that the job will be done more efficiently and will appear of higher quality thanks to their knowledge and experience!

 3.Preparation and Practices

Preparing your home for a paint job doesn’t just involve painters tape, tarp, and tools. Of course you need the paint, too! But, that doesn’t just magically appear once you decide what color you want – you have to choose the exact kind of house  paint to use. There are thousands of different options, hundreds alone in some individual home improvement stores, it can seem nearly impossible to narrow down your choices to even a “top 3!” Luckily, when you hire a professional house painter, they’re prepared to make these kinds of decisions. Not only will they help you to determine the kind of finish you want, but they’ll also probably guide you towards a higher quality paint.

 We’ve probably all heard a story from do-it-yourself painters that’s along the lines of, “I don’t understand why the walls are shaded different in different areas – I got all the same color in every paint can!”

Ah. But did you mix them all together? Little (but common) mistakes like this can cause timely and costly fixes. A professional house painter knows the proper house painter practices when painting and  probably as well as they know the back of their hand – it’s just second nature.
