Most of us wouldn’t think about doing certain chores and tasks ourselves – such as fitting a new engine into our car, rewiring the electrical system in our home, cutting down a 60-foot tree in the backyard or tiling our roof – on our own. When such tasks need to be done, hire a professional because we know Advanced Painters do it well, safely, and efficiently. Many people, even if they haven’t painted anything since high school art class, think house painting and home decorating is something they can do themselves and expect good results.
A professional painter is the best way to ensure the result is high quality. Anyone can spray paint walls, but an Advanced Painters job requires knowledge and preparation. A professional painter needs to prepare surfaces before painting so that the paint adheres properly and the results will be smooth and long-lasting. If old paint needs to be stripped, holes filled in, rough areas sandpapered, fixtures, furnishings and fittings need to be covered to prevent splashes.
In addition, a professional knows which primer to use on walls and what type of paint to use. When painting a two or three-story building, you must use ladders to reach the roof. Some paints can produce dangerous fumes that can harm your pets and family. A professional painter will have precautions in place while applying or removing these paints. When painting outside, you must use ladders because two or three-story buildings will require them.
Being perched 30 feet above the ground requires experience, not just to secure these safely but also to concentrate and perform well. In addition to ladders, professional painters use scaffolding and harness when needed – something most people do not have experience with. Nonetheless, a professional painter will know the rules regarding painting in the area and will have relationships with paint merchants and home improvement stores.
Also, they will be able to offer you a better range of paint, so you don’t have to pay high markups. It is also likely that your everyday joe has little experience with scaffolding and harnesses – something painters use in addition to ladders.
