While painting may seem like a straightforward project, it is important to consider the amount of work and knowledge that goes into painting correctly before jumping in head first.

The following factors can be the difference between a painting success and a painting disaster. Here are 6 reasons why you should hire an Atlanta painting contractor before beginning your painting project:

1. Proper Painting Preparation

A painting contractor knows the importance of proper painting preparation such as:

  • Patching and sanding walls
  • Caulking gaps
  • Removing any dirt or debris from the surface to prepare for painting

Doing these steps correctly ensures a professional finish and longer-lasting paint job, and therefore saves time and money in the long run.

2. Superior Painting Techniques

A professional painting contractor has experience using high-quality painting techniques for a better end result. This includes painting walls in the correct order, using the right painting tools, and knowing the best painting products to use for each job.

3. Proper Application of Primer

Using primer before painting (or using paint with primer already included) is essential as the primer prepares and protects surfaces from peeling and cracking in the future. A painting contractor has the experience to know what types of primer work best for different painting projects, as well as how much primer is needed depending on the project size.

So skip the guesswork when DIY painting and let the painting pros handle this step.

4. Experienced Color Matching

Painting professionals know the importance of properly matching paint colors and can suggest a variety of color options that result in an even finish. Professionals also understand the painting process, so they can tell you how certain colors may look once they are painted on a wall.

5. Quality Painting Products

A painting contractor will know which painting products are best to use for each painting project and can recommend specific painting products that are of good quality and provide maximum coverage. This ensures painting projects are completed efficiently, and with fewer coats of paint.

6. Time Saved

Hiring a contractor can be a time-saver for your painting project as they have the necessary tools and products to complete painting jobs quickly and efficiently. This way, you can spend more time enjoying the results instead of struggling through painting the job yourself.
