Why Do Painting Services Cost So Much?

Isn’t painting just slathering on some paint onto the walls with a brush or a roller? Sounds easy enough right?

Well, you are erroneously disillusioned.

Painting services by licensed contractors cost so much because it is a skilled job.

Professional painters go through years of technical training and backbreaking hard work to be gain that experience to be able to accomplish a flawless paint job. Do you know that the walls have to be sandpapered and prepped to get them ready for paint?

They also have to tape up all power points, cornices and door frames for protection. Also, climbing up the ladder to paint the top walls while ensuring an even coat is a tricky affair.

There are definitely cheaper freelance painters available in the market but you may be subjecting yourself to risks such as shoddy workmanship, damages to your furniture, hidden costs and slow completion lead times.

Cost savings vs Ease of Mind? The decision is yours.
