Painting, to some, feels like an invigorating and rewarding activity. While painting a stunning color on an old wall on a house or building might appear to be a satisfying weekend endeavor, when it comes to serious color renovation consulting a professional may be the way to go.
Even if you take a few days off purposely to go the DIY route, you might not end up with the results you want – especially when the livelihood of your commercial building is at stake. As exciting and inexpensive as the DIY option may be, here is a proven list of reasons you may want to call a contractor, based on our extended experience working in this field. Enjoy!
- When You Lack Time
It’s one thing to have a go at putting those paint rollers to good use when a small discoloration or some dirt appears on your wall, but repainting the whole room or the entire building requires serious time and effort. Plus, working in a space that’s upside down while renovating will slow things down even more, so be prepared to spend twice as much time as you anticipated in the beginning.
- When You Lack Equipment
When you do full walls, ceilings and window frames, it takes more than a few paint brushes to get good results. To get the job done from top to bottom, you require ladders, buckets, drop sheets, rollers, spraying tools and some safety gear for yourself. Don’t underestimate the whole package of supplies needed to complete your project with excellence.
- When You Want Quick Results
Professionals not only do it better but also faster. No matter how ambitious you are, you will not be able to compete with someone who does this for a living. So if the renovation process cannot be dragged for too long and you want to soak in the new fresh colors on the walls as soon as possible, it is wise to hire a commercial painting contractor. A professional team can dedicate full days to the work and do it quickly.
- When You Want Lasting Results
If you don’t want to patch up your work every year, it’s time to see the limits of DIY painting. First of all, prepping the walls before a new layer of paint is the secret to professional long term results. Second, the techniques and materials employed by an expert are superior to any amateur work and stand the test of longevity.
- When You Want to Avoid Damage
As a society, we love characters like Mr. Bean in part because we recognize our own level of clumsiness or awkwardness. Some of us are definitely more skilled than others, but if you feel your office or building is about to transform into a hazardous set as soon as the prepping process begins, it’s best to give up the role. A professional painter is licensed for this job and damages are covered by the contractor, in case the situation arises.
To conclude, DIY is always a fun job, but repainting on your own usually only works if you have the time, the gear and the skills at your disposal. When it comes to a commercial painting, the stakes are usually even higher. Request a quote with us if you’d like to consult with a professional before making your decision!
