If you have a planned painting project in Beaverton, Sherwood, or Tigard Oregon, you might be wondering whether or not you should hire a painting contractor. Painting is probably one of the most underrated home improvement projects. To many homeowners, painting means changing the surface color; however, it’s much more than that.
A high-quality paint job will boost the aesthetic appeal of your interior, prevent costly repairs, and increase your home’s value. For you to realize these benefits, you need the help of a professional painting contractor, and here is why;
1. They Have Skills and Experience
Professional contractors are fully trained on how to paint using any paint on any kind of surface properly. Other than the formal education, painters keep updating themselves on the latest painting technologies and products in the market.
Also, painting is what they do daily, and they’ve acquired extensive experience over the years. As a result, they can paint more efficiently and produce high-quality results every single time.
2. Saves You Time
If you’re like any other average homeowner, chances are you have a busy life filled with work, family, and social commitments. Setting aside 3-5 days to repaint your entire home exterior might not sound like the best way to spend your vacation.
Besides, what will take professional painters three days to complete might take you an entire week. Hiring a painting contractor frees up your time and allows you to focus on other important things that you do best.
3. Saves You Money
If it’s your first time hiring a painting contractor, ‘hiring a contractor’ to ‘save money’ might not add up at a glance. However, if you don’t have the skills and experience required, attempting DIY painting might lead to expensive mistakes. Such mistakes can cost you much more when you eventually hire a pro to correct.
Additionally, if things like signs of water damage on your drywall go unnoticed, you might be staring at serious repair costs a few months down the line. If you hire a pro painter, they get everything right from the beginning, and no crack, stain, mildew cluster or termite colony is too small to ignore.
4. The Right Tools And Equipment
If you choose DIY painting, chances are the only tools you have are the paint, paintbrush and maybe a roller. As earlier mentioned, residential painting is more than just changing the color on the surface. You need to do thorough surface preparation which may include pressure washing, paint stripping, sanding, surface repairs, and caulking.
You might also be required to paint in high areas, narrow spaces, and other difficult-to-access areas. Contractors have different types of paintbrushes, rollers, sanders, ladders, scaffolding, pressure washer, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and so on. Buying all these items for a one-off DIY project might not be a viable option for you. When you hire a pro, they come will all the necessary tools to make the work high-quality, efficient, and durable.
5. Durable Paint Job
The quality and durability of any paint job depend on paint surface preparation, painting techniques, and paint quality. Professional painting constrictors understand this all too well and have all the bases covered. If you choose DIY painting, a small oversight such as painting on a wet surface can cause the paint to start bubbling and peeling within a few weeks.

Kevin began painting houses with his father’s company, C&K Painting, in 1996. His father taught him how to use a brush, roller, and caulk and clean a brush properly. He then worked for several other paint companies, where he learned how to spray oils, lacquers, and all water-based finishes. In 2012, after 15 years of experience, he decided to get licensed and start the Maller Painting Company. His team has focused on providing the best re-painting services to our residential clients in the Beaverton area.
