calander Jul 1 , 2016 user-icon Nash Painting

If you have ever tackled a home painting project, you know it’s not easy. While many people tend to think of painting as a DIY project, it is actually something better off left to the professionals. Here we cover the advantages of hiring a professional house painter.

Quality Work

Professional painters have a level of expertise that is reflected in their work and understand how achieve perfectly painted walls every time.

In addition, painters have the right tools for the job, which include:

  • Brushes
  • Step ladders
  • Scaffolds
  • Rollers
  • And more

You could potentially buy or rent these tools, but you are unlikely to get the same quality without the familiarity and knowledge of how to operate these tools effectively.


While you may save money up front with a DIY paint job, you will end up spending more in the long run. A professional painter will perform higher quality work that will last longer.

Further, they will know how to select the proper colors to give you the best possible look, which will save you money in having to repaint later on.

The Right Prep

It doesn’t matter how high quality your paint is, or even how well you apply it, if the proper prep is not done beforehand. A bad paint job can result in spoiling the entire look of your home.

When taking a new painting project, a professional painter will ensure the room is prepped for painting by scraping walls, smoothing surfaces and removing any stains as well as any other necessary prep, which will ensure you get the best possible look for your home.


When painting your home yourself, the project can take days or even weeks. You will be the one going out and buying the materials, learning the best techniques, and, in all likelihood, having to correct mistakes.

If you have a full-time job, it can be hard to fit time into your busy schedule to paint. A professional painter will ensure your project gets done fast and on time, usually within a day or two.

Professional painters also commit to getting the job done right the first time around, so you don’t have to worry about fixing mistakes later.


When you paint your home, you become responsible for cleaning up the entire space. On the other hand, by hiring a professional painter, all cleanup is done for you. Additionally, a professional painter will make less mess from the start, so less clean-up is required.
