How much does painter and decorator cost in 2022?

At first glance, embarking on a DYI painting job may seem like a good idea, but finding the time or a poor result can leave many homeowners dissatisfied with their DIY decision.

So, before you head to the local hardware store, check out these 4 reasons why hiring a professional is often the better choice. If cost is also a factor in your decision process, then our 2022 Painting and Decorating Pricing Guide is a handy tool to help you plan and budget.

 

4 Reasons to Hire a Professional Painter & Decorator (instead of doing it yourself).

 

1. Speed

An experienced and qualified painter and decorator will know how to get a job completed with care and skill. But their knowledge and experience make them best suited to get the job completed fast.

 

2. Knowledge

Qualified painters and decorators know how and when to use the right tools, materials, and techniques for the job. They are also skilled in prepping surfaces, repairing walls and woodwork, including applying finishes like caulking – a flexible filler used to seal gaps around windows, doors etc.

 

3. Quality Finish

When you hire a professional painter and decorator, you are paying for their experience and attention to detail. So, if quality and a long-lasting finish are what you want, then you won’t go wrong with hiring a professional.

 

4. No Stress

Many people vastly underestimate how long a painting job will take. Taking time off work for your project or painting during your leisure time are DIY opportunity costs to be considered in your decision. Hiring a professional can ultimately save you time and hassle and is worth the investment.
