Why A Master Painter Is An Absolute Must For Any Renovation You Do

Construction & Contractors Blog

When changing the interior look of your house, there are a lot of tasks you need to consider, from very basic ones, such as the layout of your furniture, to the more in-depth and complex ones like rewiring your home or breaking down/adding in new walls. There is a lot to consider, which is why many people wrongly assume that painting is an area where they can save a little bit of money by doing it themselves. That is a big mistake, as painting is a very important part of any renovation and getting it right is essential. Here are a few reasons why you always need a master painter for your renovation.

Mixing The Paint

It might seem like a simple task to achieve, but mixing paint is not as easy as it looks. It requires a very precise amount of each colour and then a complicated mixing process. Most commercial painters (like the ones you will be using) have special equipment that allows them to do this mixing with extreme accuracy. If you want the room to look exactly how you imagined when the renovation is done, then you need to use a professional who can get the colour right every single time.

Even Coat

While you might read some tips online that claim to tell you how to achieve an even coat every time you paint, the truth is that these guides are not going to outweigh the experience you lack. Knowing how many coats a wall or surface needs and then making sure you haven't over or under painted a section just by looking at it is not something you can learn from an article; it requires years of experience. The last thing you want is your room to be ruined by a clearly patchy wall, not to mention all the time you would have wasted for an inferior finish. 


Without all the proper tools and equipment, painting can be quite an arduous job. A master painter has a lot of different brushes, ladders, raised platforms and other specialty tools that they can set up and pack down in minutes. These allow them to reach nooks and crannies while still being completely balanced, leading to a better finish at the end of the day. You get a lot of bang for your buck when you hire a painter rather than doing it yourself, which is why they are one of the first professionals you should hire when it comes to doing a renovation.

Extending the patio

When we moved into the house we had a really cute patio, but it was so small that if more than two people wanted to share a meal or sit together there wasn't room. That's why I have been extending the patio and working on ways to make it more hospitable for the whole family to spend time out there, such as getting the music system to connect to some speakers in the structure. This blog has some tips for homeowners who are looking to attempt a patio renovation or extension and has some tips on which jobs to DIY and when to call in the professionals.
