One of the most frequent questions DIYers ask at The Paint Pit is, "shouldn't I just hire a painter?"
I most often answer NO! And include this summary of the cost.
The largest cost associated with painting is not the cost of the paint (usually 15 percent), but rather is the cost of labor (usually 85 percent).
What this means is the average DIYer will save 85 percent of the estimated cost of painting a room if they do the job themselves.
The trick for inexperienced DIYers is not to strike out on their own and create new and different methods of painting ... though I really love creative solutions. Their best resource includes forums like this and manufacturers' sites where simple, detailed instruction will give the "best practice" for applying products.
Painting is one of the easiest ways to give your home or office a facelift.
When I walk into a freshly painted room, it feels like "new" space.
And then, take yourself out for dinner with the money you save!!!
