When facing the thought of decorating our homes, we are all guilty of trying to ignore the issue and hope it goes away. It can be a daunting experience, particularly if the entire house requires refurbishment work or if you are not confident or enthusiastic about DIY. This is why it is often easier to call on a professional painter & decorator, to make sure the job gets done properly and to get yourself out of trouble.
If you don’t know your emulsion from your eggshell or have trouble distinguishing a dado from decoupage, it is most definitely time to down paintbrushes, put the dust sheets away and allow the experts to take over.
Painting & decorating might sound easy but it is anything but simple. There are many things to consider such as the preparation of surfaces, the correct selection of brushes and rollers and keeping to the client’s specifications in terms of finish, style and colour scheme.
The amateur DIY enthusiast simply cannot match the services offered by a professional painter & decorator. For a start, they know what paints can be used on what surfaces, which rollers and brushes are best to apply the different paints and which pieces of equipment will be needed on each job.
If you are constrained by time, a professional will also be much quicker. If you have to paint a room yourself you will have to fit the work around your job, your chores and taking the kids to football. A professional will be hired to solely do your painting & decorating and will probably turn the job around in less than half the time it would take you.
They can also be helpful when you start the work yourself but then find that you don’t have the time or expertise to finish it. A professional can put right anything that you may have done wrong or simply pick up where you left off to complete the job.
There are many reasons why you should use a professional painter & decorator, even if it is just to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing the work will be completed efficiently and to the highest possible standards. It also takes away the worry of having to choose the right products and equipment for the job and it gets it done quickly.
