Have you ever tried to paint the house by yourself against all advice? I have, and let me tell you that its one of the most daunting tasks I ever undertook and to my shame, couldn’t complete. I don’t even want to think about it now. Luckily for me and the house, I did manage to get exterior house painters who did a great job including that of righting the mess I created without much difficulty. My advice is never try to paint your house exterior or interior if you are not a professional. Even if you think you are saving, believe me you will not because ultimately so much paint will be wasted and you will rue the day you even thought about it One Man And a Brush.
Those who have studied the art of painting houses, and have experience in doing a professional work will know exactly what to do to make your house look better than what it was and not worse (like when I did it). Painting a house is not just a matter of mixing a few paints together to dab on the walls. There’s much more to it than that. The old paint has to be scraped out, any holes, dents and flaws patched up and the surface made ready for the paint. Professional exterior house painters have all the equipment to carry out this work and even advise you on the type of surface you require.
Another advantage of hiring exterior house painters is that they know exactly how much paint will be required according to the square footage of the surfaces to be painted, the quantity of mixes required and all other details that go into the tedious task of painting a house. They also know to minimize wastage because house paint can be very expensive and saving even a little bit can help much in decreasing costs. They will also be extremely careful when they paint and ensure that the other areas such as the ceiling and floor will not get splashed with paint; and even if it does, they will clean it all up before finishing the job.
