Okay, let’s face the facts… When it comes to residential painting projects, you can technically complete them yourself without hiring professional painters. Here at Colour Envy Painting, we recognize and acknowledge this. But, what we also know is that hiring professional house painters to paint your home is very worth it. 

In this blog post, we’ll discuss what makes hiring Edmonton painters worth your time and money and why, although you can do your house painting yourself, that’s not always the best choice. There are four main reasons why hiring professional Edmonton painters for your residential painting project is worth it and today we’ll take you through them. 

Let’s get right into it!

Interior Design Knowledge 

Picture this: you decide to DIY the paint job in your living room. You get super excited about the colour and chance to spend your Saturday painting. You finish a few coats of paint, let it dry, and plop down onto your couch to sit back and admire it. But then… you realize… it looks terrible! The colour isn’t right, your space looks much smaller now, and it clashes with all of the furniture and decor that you’ve purchased over the years. 

We DO NOT want this to happen to you. As enticing as doing it yourself may seem, it’s not worth this feeling. 

When you hire professional house painters, you’re hiring people with interior design knowledge. Although these painters may not be certified interior designers themselves, with years of experience under their belts, they will be able to provide you with advice for your painting project. 

They won’t encourage you to paint your space with a colour that will clash with your furniture and make your room look significantly smaller than it is. They won’t encourage you to paint your home a colour that will fade or look worse over time. They won’t encourage you to paint your home a colour that you’ll end up hating in 3 weeks. 

Instead, professional house painters will be able to utilize the hundreds or even thousands of paint jobs that they’ve completed to provide you with interior design suggestions. Professional Edmonton painters will be able to help you make your space look bigger, brighter, and more welcoming. If you’re unsure about how or where you want to start with the painting project in your home, they will be able to provide you with practical recommendations.

Painting Expertise

Beyond their interior design knowledge, professional house painters are, believe it or not, really good at painting. Who would’ve thought, hey?! Although this may seem blaringly obvious, the painting expertise that professional Edmonton painters provide is one of the most meaningful benefits of hiring professionals to paint your home. 

There are a few main factors that make up the painting expertise of professional painters, particularly the professional house painters here at Colour Envy Painting. 

Precision & Attention to Detail

First and foremost, precision. Let’s face it… no matter the amount of time that you spend on your house painting project, the quality and precision that professional painters provide simply cannot be replicated. The methods and techniques that professional house painters use have been tried and tested for years and years and will provide the detail-oriented final result that you’re looking for. 

As a DIY, first-time painter, you likely won’t have the same tricks up your sleeve to make your painting project as efficient and high-quality as the professional house painters will be able to. From tools to techniques to the paint itself, the professionals simply know what they’re doing. 

They are meticulous and take pride in their work as they focus on giving you the best results possible. Professional house painters paint almost every day and are very good at what they do as a result of this. 

A Focus on the Resale Value of Your Home

While you want your home to look good while you’re in it, professional house painters provide a long-term perspective and focus on the longevity of your home. Rather than just wanting to provide a high quality paint job for you, they also consider the resale value of your home.

Professional Edmonton painters want to make sure that their paint job will last not only for you but also future residents of your home. Additionally, they will pay attention to tiny details of the painting project that you may not notice but that future buyers definitely will. 

Potential buyers will judge a book by its cover as they look through your home. A high quality, detail-oriented paint job will indicate to them that you have properly cared for the home. Also, a fresh, professional paint job is definitely something that you can boast to potential buyers as an enticing feature. 

If you get the exterior of your home painted, you’ll also greatly improve your curb appeal, making the investment not only worth it for yourself but also for the future of the property. 

Planning, Preparation, & Cleanup of the Job

Although this part of the painting project process may not seem like a huge deal for you, it can be highly time consuming and can have a huge effect on the end result. Additionally, professional house painters will be able to provide you with a specific timeline for the project whereas, as a DIY’er, you may be simply guessing how long it will take, how long to let it dry, etc. 

Before painting a wall, door, cabinet, or anything else, proper preparation needs to take place. If there are any holes in the wall, they will need to be properly filled to remove the risk of splotchy painting. If you are getting your cabinets painted, the wood needs to be properly prepared so that it picks up the colour correctly. So on and so on… you get the point. 

At the end of the day, professional Edmonton painters know how to prepare your space perfectly and will also take care of the cleanup for you so that you don’t have to worry about it.

Safety

Safety is of the utmost importance during painting projects. Here at Colour Envy Painting, proper safety measures are non-negotiable for our team of Edmonton painters

They’ll also be able to reach those tough-to-reach spots that require the use of a ladder and will have specific safety measures and procedures in place when doing so. 

Time
