Hiring vs. Do-It-Yourself

I’m sure the thought of painting your house and the hours, days or even weeks of work is enough to have you considering hiring contractor to come in and do the job for you. It’s certainly the easiest way. You can go about your normal life and not even be inconvenienced by it. There are two reasons why painting your house by hand yourself is better than using a contractor. Money is the biggest motivator. You could end up paying hundreds of dollars if you’re paying by the hour, and no contractor hurries when you’re paying them by the hour. The second reason is you lack creative control. You may be able to pick the color, but the method of painting and other touches are in the hands of the contractor.

You may want to take the easy route and hire a contractor or use a paint sprayer to save time, but taking the time and effort to do it yourself, the old fashioned way, can be rewarding in many ways.
