Do-it-yourself projects are increasingly popular and fun to take on. But they can quickly become a difficult challenge beyond your comfort level. Whether you’re refreshing your home’s exterior or adding an accent wall to your bedroom, there are many factors that go into successfully accomplishing your goal.

Published in January 2022, an Angi survey completed by 1,000 homeowners who took on DIY projects in the past two years, found that nearly 80 percent of homeowners reported experiencing a minor or major mistake during their DIY projects. Additionally, 47 percent of those surveyed said their DIY project was more challenging than they had anticipated. However, hiring professional painting contractors prevents these issues with expertise, timeliness, and precision.

A few reasons to hire professional painting contractors include:

  1. Money
  2. Time
  3. Guarantee
  4. Safety


Home paint projects require a variety of tools to get the job done. If you’re looking to paint a brick exterior, it takes the proper cleaning products to prep for paint, the right primer, and the correct paint. You’ll also need to find the correct tools for your project such as brushes and paint sprayers. If taking on an interior project such as repainting your bedroom, you’ll need to find the right color, choose the correct painting technique, and make sure that your space is properly ventilated.

By working with a professional, you’ll know that they’re using the best tools available and the correct, highest quality paint. Our estimating team will guide you in determining the best product, the ideal timeline, and we even have color consultation options to assist you in choosing the right color for your space. We know that each project is unique and when it comes to paint there is not a one-size fits all approach to deciding what process and product are best.


Completing any DIY painting project takes time. To execute it properly, you’ll also need to educate yourself on how to best achieve the results you’re looking for. Whether you’re reading manuals or searching for the best materials, these things add up and can completely alter your original timeline. When doing it yourself, projects that should take hours can take days, weeks, and even multiple months to complete. Or lead to projects that are abandoned and unfinished. According to a survey conducted by on 2,000 American homeowners, a third of respondents said they have put off at least one DIY home project by a year or more. Only 10% of the respondents said they were completely satisfied with their maintenance and home improvement projects.

Our team ensures that your project gets completed in a timely manner. Our years of experience allows you to go back to using your space quickly by establishing a timeline and preventing any delays.

Repainting high ceilings requires a stepladder that puts you at the risk of falling and requires additional time if taking breaks and fixing messy areas. Other projects like needing to strip old paint can put your health at risk if it contains lead that will then get released into the air. These are just two of the many ways you could put your health and safety at risk when taking on a DIY painting project that are easily preventable.
