n recent years, there has been an ongoing debate in various home improvement communities on whether DIY painting is better than hiring a professional painter. Some people believe that DIY painting is the new way to go considering its relatively lower costs. In contrast, others are unconvinced about any other method other than hiring a professional painter. In truth, there isn’t one means that’s outright better than the other, as there are various considerations to be made. For instance, if you enjoy getting hands-on with your home improvement, DIY would be more suited for you, and if you don’t have one creative bone in your body, hiring a professional would be the better way to go about it.
They both have their pros and cons, but most experts agree that having a professional is critical even if not through the entire process. Below are some of the reasons that call for hiring a professional painting contractor any time you have a painting project.

Unless you have loads of time to spare, finding enough time to finish a DIY paint job at your house can be difficult. Remember all the things you need to do, from finding the right paint suited for your house to preparing the house for painting which includes moving all the furniture to appropriate places, covering up any unmovable ones, taping the wall edges, and even taking down wall décor.
This doesn’t even count the time it will take you to paint the whole house and let it dry. On average, you can expect to spend over a month on such a project when fully focused on the job, and potentially three to four months if it’s something you’re doing alongside a day job or other parental responsibilities.
With a professional taking care of everything, you can expect it to take just under two weeks before the whole project is complete. This is because a professional painting contractor will have all the necessary tools required for the job, as well as a team to support them, so naturally, they will be more efficient with the job.
As we’ve touched on earlier, a house interior painting project can be a very lengthy undertaking. There’s a lot of planning and preparation involved even before the painting begins, which can be very stressful, especially for someone taking a painting project on for the first time. Think about it; you need to first identify the right colors for your home, after which you should go down to the store and find them. It is worth pointing out that you can find up to seven different variations of the same color, so choosing the right one without any expert help can be quite daunting. If you get past that, you’re now faced with the mammoth task of ensuring all the walls are well painted and that the texture is as it's supposed to be, plus about a hundred other things. If you’ve hired a professional, you don’t have to worry about any of this. You just issue your instructions, tell them how you want it, and, in a few days, or a week, you’ll have everything done and completed exactly how you’d like it.
When you’ve hired a professional to handle the paint job on your house, you can rest easy knowing that you won’t have a mess to clean up once the job is done. This is because most painting companies will ensure that they’ve cleaned up everything and nothing is left where it isn’t supposed to be. Additionally, if furniture has been moved to a different location to provide space or avoid damage, they will ensure that it has been returned exactly where it is supposed to be. Basically, there will be no heavy lifting for you to worry about.
According to Ohio state law, any professional painting contractor ought to have the necessary licenses as well as insurance cover. The insurance cover is especially important if one happens to sustain any injuries while on the job considering the numerous perils involved with such a job. This way, you won’t be liable for any medical bills, and they also can’t sue you for damages incurred while on your property. With DIY painting, however, you don’t have this option and if you get injured while on the job, there’s a chance that you will have to pay for the bills from your own pocket.
