Count on pros for quality, attention to detail, and meeting your timelines

It can be a compelling idea to assign painting to one of your crew as your new home construction project in Bonners Ferry, Coeur d’Alene, and northern Idaho nears completion. And if you are a homeowner looking to refresh their home, it may be tempting to think that you can save money by doing the job yourself.

In both cases, however, there is a long list of good reasons why you should let professional painters take over.

The trick is that finding professional exterior house painters who actually deliver professional-grade interior and exterior production paint work can be tough. The right company will be able to do more than coat walls and trim inside and out — a truly professional production painting company can offer a full range of custom painting options as well as sanding, priming, caulking, and more — which is something budget outfits often skip. The right team should also be able to handle all of your painting-related needs, including pressure washing, weatherproofing, fascia board replacement and repair, wood filling, and high-quality staining.

A lower-quality firm will cut corners wherever they can, and not include extra details like caulking and instead just tape and spray.

Here’s just a handful of reasons why you should choose professionals to complete your new-home exterior painting:

It’s more convenient

You will save a lot of time by hiring professional painting contractors. If you’re still getting your business off the ground, outsourcing this task will let you focus on getting your core tasks done while pros handle this high-visibility assignment. And if you are a private homeowner, don’t underestimate the amount of time and dedication required for a whole or partial home painting job.

Also, don’t underestimate the amount of work required for whole-house painting: taping, filling, caulking, and scraping may all be needed, which can eat up valuable time. Professional painters will have the tools and experience to handle all of this.

Hiring professionals also means you can schedule the work when it is convenient for you, and you can expect it to be done on time.

You get high-quality work

You can expect a significant difference in painting quality when you hire an outside contractor to tackle your project. Professional contractors have significantly more experience prepping walls so that the paint lasts longer, and you can expect fewer of the kinds of mistakes that cause owners to complain or submit repair requests.

Professionals are detail-oriented

Professional painters will arrive at your site fully equipped and ready to go, armed with the depth of experience needed to produce quality work. You can expect perfection on every surface because professionals with a lifetime of experience will pay attention to the small details that a crew handling multiple projects might be forgiven for missing. This kind of detail-oriented work is what wins rave reviews from customers every time.

Speaking of being fully equipped, of course you know that painting requires a lot more than just paintbrushes — do you already have all the equipment you need on site, or will you need to purchase new tools or bring them in from other jobs? By hiring a professional painting company for your northern Idaho home construction project, you won’t need to worry about whether you have the right nozzles, tape, spray guns, rollers, applicators, tips, compressors, and safety gear on hand — that’s now someone else’s headache.

The pros will be properly insured

Hiring professionals means that they are licensed to do their job, and that also means they are insured against any of the awful things that can happen on a job site. Sourcing painting jobs to your own crew can entail considerable risk and exposure. Turning to a professional means those pros will be able to correct any mistake and have the ability to handle any damage which may occur during the painting process.

Homeowners: are you really ready to stand on the top rung of a 20-foot ladder and stretch to reach that tippy top part of the house? Do you have the proper safety equipment in case you fall? And if you do fall, are you able to miss weeks of work while broken bones (or worse) heal? Don’t risk your health and safety thinking it will be worth it to save a few hundred dollars!

The pros will be more efficient

Your deadlines are tight, and weather plays a role in any project in the short northern Idaho construction season. Stop worrying about whether your crew has the bandwidth to pivot to painting when the opportunity arises. Send the job to a professional crew, which will be able to put their expertise to use and wrap your project up much more quickly than you would be able to. Professional crews will be able to dedicate full days to the work at hand to wrap it up quicker than you could have managed. Painting contractors can efficiently handle your painting job while saving you time and effort.

Hiring a professional painting team will deliver better value for your money, save you time, and ensure a quality job done right. A team like Honey Do can guarantee your satisfaction and will use only the highest-quality materials and the latest application methods.
