You've been thinking about painting your house, but you really think you can do it on your own?

If you think that by doing it yourself you're saving yourself money, maybe you're not.

First you should ask yourself:

How long has it been since you last painted your house? Since you bought it?

Do you have the technique, skills and knowledge needed for a successful DIY painting job which won’t lead to more of your time and money wasted?

Have you only had the interior paint in mind?

Do you think painting the exterior is also necessary?

Do you have all the equipment you need to do it?

In reality many people believe that painting is such a simple task that they themselves can do it. Maybe they are right, but the reality is that PAINTING is a professional task that requires several aspects that must be considered before tackling the task.

How often should I paint my house?

In truth, there is no one definitive answer to this question, because each case is different. Generally, professionals recommend repainting every 3 or 4 years, although there are a multitude of variables that can determine that new paint is needed sooner. While it is true, if it has been applied correctly, the paint is of 1st quality and adequate maintenance is carried out, we can lengthen the time without painting up to 5 or 6 years.

What influences how often I have to paint my house?

The habits of people living in the house. For example, if smoked inside the house, tobacco smoke causes stains on walls and ceilings. If there are young children and pets, rubbing on the walls and stains are more common.

The quality of the paint and how it has been applied.  Using good materials to paint the house clearly influences how long it will last in correct conditions, but what influences even more this duration is to have applied the paint correctly.

If the person who has applied the paint is not a professional, it is very possible that the application is not correct and in a short time there will be disconcons on the wall, less protected areas, moisture stains, etc… Causing us to have to repaint more often.

Environmental factors also influence this decision. For example, in rooms where the sun gives a lot the paint may lose its vividness and intensity faster. On the other hand, in wetter rooms such as bathrooms or the kitchen, condensation stains can come out on ceilings and walls more easily.

Daily dust and friction are factors that are common in all cases.

Okay, now, who can help me make this job a success and the painting of my house lasts a long time?

Why hire paint professionals?

Paint professionals will also know how to deal with different surfaces, combine colors, make mixtures, etc.
