Will You Try to Do It Yourself?
Winter is coming. The rainy season will be here soon, along with leaks, worn weather stripping, mold, frost, and other problems that can wreak havoc on your home’s exterior. So if you haven’t painted your house in at least three years, it’s time to consider why hiring residential painters in San Rafael makes sense. Plus, with the holidays around the corner, don’t you want your home to look its absolute best?
Everyone wants to save money on home maintenance. But trying to paint your home, your condo, or the room your mother-in-law is going to be staying in is a job best left to the experts. You may think you know what to do, but have you considered the following:
• How much will the drop cloths, brushes, rollers, paint, and sandpaper cost you?
• How many coats of paint does an exterior need vs. an interior?
• Does the front door need a special type of paint vs. the siding?
• Do windows need enamel or acrylic?
• Should interior paint be washable or scrubbale?
• Should you use environmentally friendly paints with zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs)?
• Should you buy or rent ladders for the upper floors?
And don’t get me started on how much time it can take if you don’t know what you are doing.
Why Not Hire an Expert?
Painting a house is harder than it looks. How many times do you need to paint a deck? Should you sand it, then paint it or sand it, stain it, then paint it with a clear coat? And how much paint will you waste before you realize you shouldn’t have tried to do it yourself in the first place?
It takes years to perfect the technique to paint a house efficiently. It takes experience to know when to use a brush, a roller, or a sprayer. It takes knowledge to know what kind of paint to use instead of grilling the salesperson at the hardware store, then going back a few more times to get what someone else told you to use in the first place.
Speaking of that, how much more will it cost you to hire an expert after you try to paint your own home and find that it’s a lot more time-consuming than you thought. In addition, rather than buying all of that equipment and rarely using it again, why not consider hiring a residential painter in San Rafael to do all the work for you ––quickly, efficiently, and expertly.
