Why choose professional painters for your construction?

Regardless of the type of construction, whether new or old, a well-painted building increases not only the aesthetics of the place, but also its market value. A good paint job can completely transform a space, creating a welcoming atmosphere and reflecting care and attention to detail. Furthermore, the paint also serves as a layer of protection against external elements, such as humidity, sun and wear caused by time, prolonging the useful life of the building. Therefore, investing in professional painting is not just a matter of beautification, but also a smart strategy for maintaining and increasing the value of the property. 

However, painting a house is not as simple as it seems and not as cheap. After all, in addition to the costs of materials (putties, paints, solvents and brushes, for example), you need to know a minimum of painting techniques so as not to waste materials and compromise the final result. Therefore, many people find themselves in doubt between hiring professional painters or doing the work themselves. 

In this content, we highlight the main reasons why opting for professional painters may be the best choice for your project. And, of course, we also leave some tips on what to take into consideration when negotiating with these professionals. Check out! 

Advantages of choosing professional painters and what you should know when negotiating

When we refer to professional painters, we are talking about people who specialize in painting houses, buildings and other types of buildings. And what is the difference between professional painters and those who try their hand at the craft from time to time? Well, first of all, the professional painter must have some experience and full knowledge about applying paint to various surfaces, such as internal and external walls, ceilings, doors, and windows of residential, commercial or industrial buildings. 

Therefore, these professionals work from the initial assessment and preparation of the property to the final application of painting. This way, it is possible to guarantee high-quality results that meet or exceed customer expectations. 

And if you still haven’t been convinced of the importance of having the support of a professional team, we’ve listed some of the main advantages: 

Professional quality

Professional painters bring with them years of experience and knowledge about painting techniques, types of paint best suited for each surface, and how to properly prepare walls before applying paint. This ensures a high-quality finish that is difficult to achieve on your own. 

You may have the best products and equipment, but we guarantee you won’t achieve the same results. 

Time saving and convenience

Painting a building can be a very time-consuming process, especially for those who don’t have much experience. After all, it is possible that you will need to redo the work, understand how to use each piece of equipment and it will still take twice as long. Therefore, hiring professional painters frees the homeowner from this task, allowing them to focus on other responsibilities or simply enjoy their free time without worries. 

Appropriate equipment

Professional painters are equipped with the necessary tools to get the job done efficiently and effectively. This includes ladders, quality paint rollers, brushes and safety equipment. Often you don’t even need to invest in purchasing these materials and your list in the store will be very reduced. Look at the money saved! 

We need to highlight that using the ideal equipment not only improves the quality of the finish, but also ensures safety during the painting process. 


It is undeniable that a painting done by professionals tends to last much longer than a DIY (Do It Yourself) painting. This is because experienced painters know how to prepare surfaces to ensure that the paint adheres correctly and lasts longer, avoiding the need for frequent touch-ups. 

It may even seem like you will spend more on hiring this professional. But in the long run, it will be much more economical for you. 


Many professional painters offer warranties on their work. This means that if problems occur regarding the quality of the paint or application, they will return to correct the problem at no additional cost. This is a layer of security you don’t have when doing the work yourself. 

After all, if your attempt fails the first time, you will have to do it again yourself and pay all the costs. 

Knowledge about trends and colors

And finally, professional painters are often up to date with the latest color trends and can offer advice on which colors or finishes are best for your desired room. They can help turn your vision into reality with suggestions you might not have considered. 

Furthermore, if you want a very different color, with textures and gradients, only a professional painter will know how to do it. 

What to consider when negotiating with professional painters

When negotiating with a professional painter, it is important to consider some factors to ensure that the service meets your expectations for quality, deadline and budget. Here are some key points to take into account: 

  • Experience and references: ask about the painter or painting company’s experience on projects similar to yours. Ask for references and, if possible, look at examples of previous work to assess quality. 
  • Licenses and insurance: confirm that the painter has all the necessary licenses to operate in your area, as well as liability and workers’ compensation insurance. This protects you from possible damage or accidents during the project. 
  • Service details: discuss in detail the scope of the project, including surface preparation, number of coats of paint to be applied, brands and types of paint, and any special techniques that will be used. This helps avoid misunderstandings and rework. 
  • Quote and payment: get a detailed quote, including all materials and labor costs. Discuss payment terms, including any down payment required and the payment schedule. Avoid paying the full amount in advance. 
  • Timeline: make sure the deadline for completing the work is clearly established and agreed upon. This includes start and end dates, as well as fines or compensation for delays. 
  • Guarantee: check if the painter offers a guarantee on the work carried out and which aspects are covered by this guarantee. It is also important to discuss how complaints or corrections are handled after the project is completed. 
  • Preparation and cleaning: understand how the areas to be painted will be prepared and how the cleaning will be carried out after the work is completed. This includes protection for furniture, floors and surrounding areas. 
  • Communication: evaluate communication with the painter. It is important that you feel comfortable openly discussing any aspect of the project and that the painter is available to answer your questions. 
  • Contract: insist on a written contract that includes all discussed details, such as scope of work, budget, deadline, warranties, and material specifications. This serves as legal protection for both parties. 

And don’t forget: if possible, always seek references from contractors from previous projects. 

The decision to paint your building yourself or hire a professional painter is a significant one and should be made after careful consideration of all factors involved. While the DIY option may be tempting, the advantages of hiring a professional are clear and numerous, ensuring greater safety and savings in the long term.
