diy paintingIs your interior looking a little tired or out-dated? Is your exterior sun-damaged, blistered, or faded? Are you looking to change up the look and feel of your property? It’s time to refresh your home with a new coat of paint.

At first, you might be tempted to head to your local hardware store, stock up on painting supplies, and do the work yourself. How hard can it actually be?

The truth is, house painting is a tricky job. From cleaning, sanding, filling, and priming the surface to protecting your belongings and achieving an even finish, a whole lot can go wrong.

In this article, we’ll debunk four professional painting service myths. Let’s get started.

Myth 1: Professional painting services are super expensive

Yes, professional painting services businesses are exactly that – businesses. But their services are often much more affordable than homeowners expect. So, before you commit to DIYing, it’s worth requesting a couple of quotes.

Look for a painting company in your local area that has plenty of positive reviews and testimonials. They will most likely provide you with an accurate, obligation-free quote.

Myth 2: Going the DIY route will save you a ton of money

As we mentioned above, professional painting services are typically much less expensive than homeowners expect. DIYing, on the other hand, is often much more expensive.

First, think about all of the materials you will need to purchase:

  • Rollers
  • Brushes
  • Painters tape
  • Sandpaper
  • Drop sheets
  • Ladders
  • And more

Then, consider just how much time it will take you to paint the space. Could you use that time in a more productive way, whether that be working, enjoying your hobbies, or having fun with friends and family?

And finally, think about the very real prospect of things going wrong. The last thing you want is to spend hundreds of dollars on supplies and hours upon hours of your time only to end up hiring a team of professionals to fix the mess you made.

Myth 3: Professional painting services leave your home in a mess

Painting can be messy business and clean-up can be time-consuming. The good news is, when you call in the pros, any mess is their responsibility.
