One of the most common mistakes Atlanta homeowners make is thinking that they can turn their interior painting project into a Saturday afternoon DIY project. This could not be further from the truth. You have this stunning home, possibly even historic, so why would you think that you are qualified to take care of decorating the feature of each room that gets seen the most? Unless you are professionally trained in the field, it is better to leave it to experienced experts.
Mistakes Will be Made
The thing to keep in mind is that the job is about a lot more than just applying paint to walls; the preparation and cleanup work alone is the majority of the job. This is also where mistakes are often made, mistake that would have been avoidable if you had simply opted for hiring a professional painter. So what are some of these mistakes?
When the taping goes wrong – Taping off the other walls, trim and ceiling is one of the most tedious jobs and reason enough to hire someone else. The worst part is when you peel off the wet messy tape as the end of the job and find that paint still got under the tape. Or, you could end up waiting too long to remove the tape so the tape isn’t wet, but when you pull it off it takes part of the fresh paint with it.
Patching problems – Again, because you are not an expert, you are not going to get the same results that a professional would when you try to patch holes as part of the preparation work. On top of that, you could end up still having the botched patch job show through the paint, as well. Instead of concealing damage you end up making this area the focal point of your walls.
Lint from the roller ends up decorating your walls – The last thing that you want to do is end up creating a textured effect on your walls by letting the lint from your roller brush end up in the paint. From there it ends up on your walls and looks terrible. This is not the type of work you get when you hire a pro to do the job for you.
