Why Hiring a Professional Painter is Better than Doing it Yourself

Brent Lunde - Wednesday, June 10, 2015

It's common for homeowners to consider the DIY approach when it's time to make some upgrades to their home such as painting and maintenance. But there are a lot of good reasons not to take a stab at painting your own house, and leave it to the pros instead.


Although you may have painted the walls of your living room before, professional painting crews are trained to paint on a wide variety of surfaces, including:


  • Hardi-plank siding
  • Wood and cedar siding
  • Trim and gutters
  • Windows and shutters
  • Wood doors
  • Metal doors
  • Soffits
  • Columns
  • Porches
  • Decks
  • Fencing
  • Ceilings
  • Cabinets
  • Molding


Additionally, they know how to apply paint effectively so that it lasts for decades to come. At Pro Paint Northwest, every painting project includes:


  • Power washing
  • Scraping, priming and caulking before painting
  • Spray, brush and roll application be trained, qualified professionals
  • Paint applied at the manufacture-specified thickness
  • Paint and primer selection assistance



Even if you are confident with a paint brush, that doesn't mean you're knowledgeable or have the tools you need to make repairs to your house siding, deck, etc. before painting can even begin. When you hire a professional paint crew, like Pro Paint NW is Vancouver, WA, you get in-house carpentry services who can fix and install the following:


  • Crown molding
  • Wainscoting
  • Base board molding
  • Shoe molding
  • Decorative columns
  • Window and door casing
  • Chair railing
  • Wall paneling


When you trust Pro Paint NW with your carpentry needs, you can expect:


  • Quick & Accurate Estimates
  • In-Home Consultation & Design 
  • Efficient On-Site Workflow 
  • Outstanding Customer Service 
  • Good Communication
  • Flexible Scheduling
  • Respectful Service


Color Selection

Is your home feeling a bit dull and lifeless? You might think red is the perfect color to revitalize your house, but before you make a decision that could last a very long time, why not consult the experts?


A professional paint crew will not only be adept at applying paint, but they make great color consultants. Choosing an attractive color can make a big difference including increasing your home's value and appeal. At Pro Paint NW, we're happy to advise you on your color selection, bounce ideas with you, and provide you with professional tips and tricks (like how to choose the right color for your Pacific Northwest home based on location and weather).



Let's face it, we don't all have the time to dedicate to a painting project, and even if we did, we are all susceptible to putting it off or starting it and procrastinating on wrapping it up. When you hire a professional, you ensure that your project is executed on and that someone (aside from yourself) is being held accountable for completing the job. Another benefit is that you can explain your vision to someone and watch it come true before your eyes without lifting a finger.


When you hire Pro Paint NW, you can expect efficient and effective execution on all projects of any size, as well as outstanding customer service. We want to get to know you and understand your vision, so we can make it happen at a price you can afford and on a timeline that will leave you feeling well taken care of.


Skip the Mess

Painting is a very messy task, and there is a lot of time that needs to go into prepping an area before the paint gets opened. Additionally, there are a handful of supplies that are needed in order to protect furnishings, wood flooring, carpet, tile, walls, ceilings, trim, windows, doors, etc. from getting splattered. Skip the hassle and skip the mess! Call the pros at (360) 903-3352. We are diligent about prepping our worksites at Pro Paint NW and always clean up after ourselves, so that the site is as clean as it was when we first arrived.
