Exterior Painting – Why Use a Pro
April 18, 2018
Have you ever set out on a “do-it-yourself project” such as painting and then abandoned the idea before the job is even halfway done? Or have you ever started a painting project only to realize that you didn’t have the right equipment (or for that matter skill level) to complete the job the right way? These are common hazards of homeowners thinking that painting the exterior of their home will be easy or a quick weekend project. Wondering why you should use a professional for exterior painting?
Professional Painters have the advantage because they…
- Understand the Conditions of your Home: Many homeowners don’t realize that there are so many factors to consider when painting the exterior of a home. For example, how difficult is your home to paint? Is it a simple box shape with easy lines? Or perhaps your home is taller, older, or has intricate detailing, dormers, overhangs, or nooks and crannies that may need extra TLC. Some homes have sloping ground or the grade around the perimeter of the structure is graded awkwardly. Other homes need lots of prep work due to wood rot, mildew, peeling, cracking paint, or loose caulking. If your home has some tricky aspects, you may want to consider hiring a professional who knows how to deal with homes of all sizes, shapes, details, and prep work needed.
- Have the Right Tools Painters make it part of their business to have the right tools needed to handle every situation. The experts at Jerry Enos Painting can deal with any type of home because we have specialized equipment that a homeowner would not normally have at their disposal including: lifts, extension ladders, planks, scaffolding, an assortment of paint applicators, caulking, repair needs and, of course, cleaning items for all that prep work.
- Have the Experience and Skills While it may seem like operating a brush and roller are fairly simple jobs, this is not exactly true. Professional painters like our team members, understand where to look for issues, how to prep a difficult area, how much paint is adequate, the right conditions to paint in, how to cut-in properly, and a million other little tricks-of-the-trade that only come with years of experience and skill.
- Save you Time One of the questions to consider when deciding to go it alone painting or hiring a pro is, “How much is your time worth?”. Do you have several weekends to devote to prepping, cleaning, and painting the exterior of your home or would that time be better spent doing something else?
