When it comes to painting your Troy, Missouri home, you might ask yourself, “Why would I pay someone else to do that when could do it myself?” And you are right, you could do it yourself. But have you fully considered everything that goes into painting an entire house? Here are some things to think about.

First, do you have the right equipment? You’ll need brushes, rollers, trays, tarps, ladders, and of course, lots and lots of paint. You’ll need to know which kind of paint to buy and calculate how much of it you need based on the size of your house. You’ll need to make sure you’re comfortable working high up on the roof or at the top of a ladder, and take all the necessary safety precautions to avoid injury.

Attention to detail is important as well. Is everything properly masked to avoid getting paint where you don’t want it? Has old paint been scraped clear and have all surfaces been sanded and prepared for optimal adhesion? You may begin to see that there is a lot of time involved not only in painting your house, but in the preparation work as well. And if you don’t have anybody helping you, expect that time to be much longer. Cleanup is another chore that must be taken care of, just when you think your painting work is done.

When it comes down to it, you might save some money by painting your house yourself. But you should also consider the time that it will take you to complete the task.
