5 Areas You Should Hire A Pro To Paint
So, you’re thinking about painting a few areas of your home?
Sure, you can do it yourself. You’ll need a few common items and time set aside to do a reasonable job. An area we suggest trying yourself, if you are so inclined, is a standard bedroom. It usually has four square walls with more open space. This means less brushing/cutting-in and more rolling paint. So, if you don’t have a steady hand with a brush it still looks reasonably good.
But, there are some areas of your home you should hire a professional painter for and here’s why:
1-The Bathroom: There’s a lot going on in here. High humidity, toilets to work around, sinks, vanity, mirror, towel bars and toilet paper holder to name a few. All these items you have to use a brush to get close to.
2- The Kitchen: Again, lots of items. Cabinets, counters, nooks and crannies to use a brush around.
3- Entry hallway: How comfortable are you on ladders? How about ladders on a staircase? Probably not. A professional painter will have the right equipment to easily reach those high places.
4- Exterior: Where to start…. Heights, prep, prep, and more prep. Unless you own a ranch and the highest you have to be on a ladder is 12 feet or under this best left to the experts.
5- The Kitchen- Again: Kitchen Cabinets can make a dramatic impact for a fraction of the cost of replacement. The special attention required to make sure they are prepared and painted to look like a factory finish are usually beyond the scope of a homeowner.
