In a world that has become increasingly demanding for our time and attention, money and time have steadily become one in the same. We have all heard the term, “work smarter, not harder,” and the application of this phrase, much like the marriage of time with money, has become increasingly consistent – at work, at home, and during vacation. Interior and Exterior painting, has long been one of the favorable “Do it yourself” jobs. For most working Americans, taking an entire week or weekend to repaint your house is not something a working professional can easily allocate precious “time” to. Using a professional painter / contractor will take the stress out of the job, not to mention the burden of second guessing yourself on the quality of your own work. We all know the side effects that can consume our thoughts when we internally re-hash the decisions we make, based on a poor outcome of a “do it yourself” project. Hiring a professional painter avoids such feelings of doom and personal doubt, all while allowing you to focus on your business and/or family goals. Additionally, there are a number of equipment and safety factors that should influence your decision to allow a professional to add color to your home and life.
Equipment and Safety Factors:
If your home build date is previous to 1978, it’s possible that the structure may have been painted with lead based paint. Lead based paint can cause serious health effects while scraping or sanding the existing paint surface. All pre-paint preparation precautions will be taken when in the hands of a professional. Proper preparation on the current surface will allow a professional to achieve your aesthetic expectations. Additionally, skilled painters will be able to offer insight on how lighting and other environmental concerns will affect the color hues you are considering. Choosing the right color and paint type is not always an easy decision, professional painters will be able to offer invaluable wisdom in order to obtain the premeditated paint performance and longevity expectations set.
