So you want to freshen up your home, or finish off a newly renovated room/basement, with a paint job. And you have a big question on your mind: Do I hire a professional or do it myself?
Well, if you ask yourself: Can I do the painting myself? Of course the answer is yes. But, the important question is, Are you sure you want to? Painting is a very difficult job to do perfectly. A good paint job can make a solid basement finish shine; it’s the frosting on the cake. A good paint job can really show the fine craftsmanship of your basement or any project.
On the other hand, a poor paint job will make the best of work look bad. As stated previously, painting is the frosting on the cake. If the frosting looks bad, doesn’t the whole cake look bad? It’s the same with paint on the walls in a room. If the paint job looks bad, so does the whole room. While painting may look easy, it is definitely not. It requires skillful work to get those straight lines and applying the paint in a way so that there are no runs, drips, or streaks. Looking at a wall on an angle in good lighting is the real test of a good paint job.
You need to be especially careful when considering the condition of the walls. If the walls are in bad condition and need more work, such as drywall work, it becomes even more challenging. Drywall work can be very difficult. And if the drywall isn’t done correctly, the whole job will look less than pleasing.
Keep these things in mind when making the decision to the aforementioned question. Our recommendation is to hire a professional painter. It will save you a lot of time and stress (and possibly even money) in the long run!
Professional painters in Calgary know what they are doing and typically offer warranty on their work. The contracted painter you hire will be able to help you with advice on what looks good, what type of paint is best for certain areas, etc. Let their knowledge help you make your home look good!
Save yourself the stresses of doing it yourself and hire a professional painter. Since it will only cost you time and money if you do a bad job and have to get it re-done by a professional anyway, you might as well just hire one in the first place.
