Diy House Painting

Is DIY Really Cost Effective?

The most obvious advantage of DIY house painting is the money saved with costs of paint and equipment being the only expense to the home owner.

But remember that while the paint itself is not too costly, the other equipment like sprayers, tools, brushes and ladders do not come cheap. An alternative is to hire a professional paint sprayer from a rental agency at a daily rate.

It is tempting to consider the savings that can be achieved while comparing the hourly rate of a professional house painter and the expense and time requirements of a do-it-yourself project. If the house painter can complete the job within a few hours or days instead of weeks, then the cost savings may be justified.

Labor costs tend to be substantial while taking on the services of a paint contractor. However, a homeowner may not be covered by insurance if something were to happen. Conversely all reliable contractors carry their own insurance. J.Angeles Painting & Decorations will periodically send special newsletters to our Preferred Internet Clients.
