In this age of DIY crafts and improvement projects, many homeowners are taking maintenance matters into their own hands. While this growing sense of empowerment has many benefits, there are some circumstances when it’s still best to call a professional.
If you plan on recoloring your walls, Texas Professional Painting can help you tackle any task, including interior, exterior and restorative painting. Alternatively, if you want to break out your own brushes, walk through this guide to weigh the pros and cons of hiring helpers first.
On top of redecorating your home, you probably have a lot on your plate. A recoloring project often demands a lot of time, energy and attention — all of which can be applied elsewhere when you hire a painting company. This benefit is especially relevant if you want to decorate multiple rooms or repaint your entire exterior, which could take weeks if you try to handle it alone.
Trained painters already have years of experience under their belt, meaning they naturally work faster than a novice. Furthermore, a professional won’t have to take breaks to complete other household tasks. This efficiency cuts the estimated length of a project dramatically.
A painting project entails more than simply putting down blue tape and coating your walls. The preparation process (selecting an ideal color, picking the appropriate paint brand, calculating the number of materials needed and adequately protecting your floors and ceilings) can be overwhelming. Passing those responsibilities to someone with proper training minimizes stress levels.
DIY advocates often make a fatal mistake: choosing whichever paint they come across first, or whichever is cheapest. In reality, the appropriate materials depend on many factors, including the texture and structure of your walls. These considerations are especially important if you’re working on damaged or aged surfaces. A professional painter already has the necessary knowledge to pick the perfect product.
Additionally, the tools needed for recoloring can be quite costly. A painting company will already have ladders, drop cloths, sealants and sandpaper, meaning you won’t have to empty your wallet for a quick project.
Finally, the greatest benefit of hiring help is the exceptional end product. Even if you do your research and take your time, a DIY paint job often can’t compare to professional work. If you’re seeking a perfectly neat and smooth color (and who isn’t?) a painting company is your best option.
Each person’s home and circumstances are unique, meaning there aren’t concrete guidelines on who should or shouldn’t hire professionals. However, it’s typically safest to work with an experienced team.

Do it yourself is great! You get to be creative, try new things and hopefully save money. But when is DIY a bad idea? When should you seek professional help instead of trying to do it yourself?
Here are 6 reasons you should hire a commercial painting instead of trying to complete a project by yourself.
If you hire a commercial painter you can rest easy that your cousin Bob wouldn’t fall off a ladder and come to you with his hospital bill. Professional painters are experienced and trained on how to safely plan and execute a paint job. The Pros have systems and protocols that a novice painter will not have.
Whether it’s your home or office you can rest easy knowing Texas Professional Painters are indeed professional. You can trust our team to take care of your home or business. Don’t put yourself at risk of being a cautionary tale, hiring from sketchy online sites and inviting strangers into your home or business with no known association with any professional organization just to save a few bucks. Hire a company you can trust.
Don’t worry about bad surprises when you hire a commercial painter. You can expect a beautifully done, professional job. Not just attractive to the eye but properly prepared, painted and finished with long term quality in mind. Hiring a professional will give you peace of mind that the job will be done right. No streaks, random uneven areas or roller marks. They know what they are doing!
Often people decide to do their own painting in hopes of saving money but how much money does it really save you? When you hire a professional you aren’t investing in painting materials you’ll never use again, for example, painter’s tape, drop cloths, buckets, brushes, paint rollers, and refills, paint trays, paint buckets. Nor do you have to worry about renting and transporting larger supplies you may need.
Most professional companies offer a written estimate for the work you want to be done so their won’t be any of the guesswork in figuring out how much the job might cost. Also, work done correctly will last longer. An armature job may need to be redone sooner than a professionally done one. Let’s be honest, don’t forget the money you’ll save buying pizza and beer for your buddies if they offer to help.
What is your time worth? Even if you discover that it is cheaper for your to buy paint and supplies then to hire a professional, are you including the value of your own time? What could you do in the number of hours you spend on the job that would take our team of painters less time to do? Why book your calendar for days of painting when you could let us do the heavy lifting for you?
If something goes wrong with your paint job you can find comfort in the fact that the painting company is insured to make it right. Their insurance should be able to provide your property with protection from anything that happens to it during the painting process (as a result of it. Talk directly with your representatives about the specifics). Do not hire a company that is not licensed and insured!
