DIY vs Professional Painters: Which One Is Right for You?

Depending on where you live, your home will need a new coat of paint every seven to ten years. Because coastal homes are more exposed to natural elements like the sun, wind and sand, they will need more frequent painting, perhaps every five to seven years.

Painting isn’t brain surgery, but if you don’t have the right tools or don’t know which products to use, you might want to consider hiring reputable painters for the job. Asking friends and family for information or even using the internet, might give you conflicting information which is why you should at least consider professional painters.

Painting requires preparation beforehand, and you’ll need to get your timing right for professional-looking results. Additionally, the project will take you much longer since you’ll be using your spare time to paint, and you have to take mother nature into account.

It might be possible to DIY your interior or exterior painting project if you have the right skills and equipment, but are you committed to giving up your weekends for the next month or two?

If the answer is no then you are better off hiring house painters for your home or business in Pretoria. It will speed up the process and you’ll have the desired results.

Is DIY really cheaper?

You might be wondering, can DIY save you money? Too many homeowners consider DIY because they think it will save them money when, in fact, it won’t. Here’s why: You will have to invest in proper tools and equipment that professional painters already own. And buying cheap paint instead of quality will only mean you’ll have to repaint quicker.

The only thing that won’t be cheaper is the actual labour unless you do such a bad job that you have to hire professional painters, like Sipenda Paint, to fix it.
