Painting your own house may seem like a doable project that you can complete without a professional home remodeling company, like Total Package Painting. While it’s entirely possible to undertake a DIY home painting venture, it’s a time-consuming and messy process that you should carefully consider before laying down the drop cloths. Here are the pros and cons of having your home professionally painted versus doing it yourself.


  • You don’t have to shop for supplies and equipment. Your valuable time is saved from having to stand in the aisles of a home improvement store trying to figure out what to buy. When you hire Total package Painting, you are hiring our company’s 35 years of expertise.
  • Surface preparation is left to the professionals. Surface preparation requires the greatest amount of time in comparison to the work of painting and can be the most frustrating to DIYers. Preparing a surface for paint includes patching holes, scraping chipped and cracked paint, removing wallpaper, sanding, taping off all areas that should not be painted and covering fixtures.
  • Project is completed on-time and correctly.  Homeowners who begin an interior painting project may run out of time or steam to get the tasks finished. On the other hand, professional painters know how successfully complete the project on-time with an outstanding level of quality.
  • There’s no need to climb ladders or clean up the painting areas. Total Package Painting’s professionals will paint your vaulted ceilings and thoroughly clean up your home after the job is done.

Con: The only real con to hiring a professional is that it costs more than doing it yourself. However, once you begin calculating what your time and peace of mind is worth to you and how important it is to have a professional-looking paint job, it becomes clear that hiring a professional is your best choice no matter how you look at it.
