What Does A Residential Painter Do?
A residential painter is simply a tradesman who specializes in:
-The painting of interior and exterior of your home
-Details (color matching, color pallets, textures, etc).
Your residential painter will quote out your job and provide you with a timeline of completion. They will prep all surfaces and make any repairs as needed for a smooth surface. This includes, but is not limited to removing wallpaper, repairing drywall, removing old paint, repairing cracks or damage to walls or trim and more. A residential painter will be skilled in the most efficient way to complete your job while protecting the overall structure of your home and protecting your furniture and surrounding objects from damage in the process.
Benefits of Hiring Vs. DIY
Painting is something you can always do yourself, but you can almost guarantee it’s going to take significantly longer and not likely to have as professional of an end result. If you enjoy the prep work and painting, by all means – save the extra funds and go to town painting. BUT, if you are looking for a smooth start to finish process that requires very little work on your end, hiring a residential painter is the way to go. Hiring a professional gives you peace of mind knowing your contractor is catering to your specific needs in creating the atmosphere you desire in your home transformation, and that you are getting quality, long lasting results. You can expect your residential painter to work with you at each step of the process.
