House Painting – Contractor or DIY?

[The following is a guest blog post from a Wilmington NC homeowner]

Wilmington NC Interior PaintingWhen it comes to painting the house, the first question is usually: “Does it make sense to do this myself or hire painters to do it for me?” When we bought our first house – a definite fixer-upper – my husband and I did all the painting ourselves. That was when I first learned that “painting” really meant scraping, spackling, priming, taping, AND painting. That was a huge project and it took months to get all the rooms done. The most fun parts were picking the colors and enjoying it when it was all done. Of course this is when we were young, had no kids, and were full of excitement about our new house and all the possibilities.

Now that we have little kids and a more grown-up house here in Wilmington, we hardly ever even ask ourselves if we should do the painting ourselves. How could we spend our precious weekends getting rooms done bit-by-bit while living in the chaos of furniture that’s all moved around, fixtures and artwork taken down and piled up somewhere else, and kids who are trying to get your attention all the while? How much is our time worth to us? Surely it’s worthwhile to hire painters to come in for 2 or 3 days while we’re at work and the kids are at daycare to get the job done. The painters will even move the furniture around for us, take down the fixtures, and put everything back when they’re done. And we still get to do the fun parts of picking the colors and enjoying it when it’s all done.

So for us it’s a no-brainer. Hire a professional painting contractor in Wilmington, NC. One that you can trust with the key to your home or to be respectfully sharing your space while you’re there. One that is neat, polite, and does a great job cleaning up at the end of the day and at the end of the project. Colour Solutions Custom Painting Company is an excellent choice for house painting – interior and exterior. They are professional, efficient, neat, and clean and they do a wonderful job, particularly with specialty finishes. While they’re there, they can even help with drywall repair, small carpentry jobs, and pressure washing if needed.
