Hire Help rather than DIY

When we moved into our new house many of the interior rooms needed to be painted so we looked around online to find a good reliable painting contractor to hire for the job. There are a lot of home-improvement projects that are too difficult to do on your own however painting seems like it could be an easier job and something that the homeowner like myself could do on my own. For example I wouldn’t think twice about hiring a contractor to install a door or build a new roof but Painting seems like a much easier job.
I attempted to paint one of the rooms and one hour and I realized I was in over my head. There’s a lot more that goes into painting then I first assumed. For example the prep work itself took much longer than the actual paint application. Then there were things to consider such as the type of paint, the type of finish, the type of rollers and brushes that were needed to apply the right amount of paint, as well as how many coats to apply.
I decided I needed to hire a good experienced painter that already had the tools and everything that they needed to do an efficient job.
And most likely a professional would do it in a fraction of the amount of time that it would take me to finish the same job simply because I don’t have the same type of experience as a painter that does it on a daily basis does.
Hiring a painting contractor was not an easy task however. There were those that were very good but they were in high demand and their schedule did not work with mine they were booked out months in advance.
And a few other local people like handyman offered their services but I did not see any examples of their work online or reviews from previous customers so I was not sure what I was getting into if I hired them.
Eventually after much searching I found a reliable local painting contractor that was able to complete the job in the time that I needed and a really nice job on the entire interior of my home. And it was definitely worth the time and effort that I put into searching online for Boston house painters rather than spending that time painting by myself and probably messing up the job further.
