August 26th, 2018 7 Reasons Why You Should Hire Professional Painters
Are you trying to decide whether you should take on that painting project you have been meaning to start for months, or whether you should hire professional painters? We understand! There are benefits to both. But as professional painters, and color specialists who have been working in the Greater New Orleans area for decades, we may be biased. In fact, one company took a poll and found that one out of every five people who paint on their own end up hiring a professional in the end. Here are 7 more surprising reasons why you should hire professional painters.
1. Saves you Time
Do you love spending days hopping from paint store to paint store trying to find the perfect shade for your space, decking yourself out in your finest throwaway clothes for weeks, priming, sanding, and filling holes in all of your walls, covering everything you care about in layers of blue tape, and spending time after a busy workday painting? Well we do–it’s our business. As professional painters, we have decades of experience and a dedicated and highly-skilled team of artists who can complete your painting project in a fraction of the time it would take to paint on your own. We operate around your work schedule, coming into your space only whenever convenient for you. We even do the clean-up so you don’t have to!
2. Saves you Money
If you’ve ever completed a DIY project, you know that pesky incidentals rack up your budget quickly. Purchasing painting equipment that you may only use once? Cleaning up after a nasty paint spill? We use only the highest quality paints and have invested in state-of-the-art tools that will provide the freshest, longest, lasting, and most even coat of paint as quickly as possible to save you both time and money. In the long-term, a professional painter knows which products will last the longest and even which colors are best for future resale value.
3. Fewer Costly Mistakes
Worried about your priceless family heirlooms getting destroyed during painting? Or your expensive flooring? Prep work is a task on its own, and done improperly, could lead to expensive mistakes. Before the painting process begins, we can power wash, fill holes, sand, prime, remove important appliances, and cover all vulnerable surfaces. As professional painters, we have learned to expect the unexpected and if any problems arise, Jason Bertoniere, Inc. has a solution. And insurance. So if a mistake does occur, we’re covered. In addition, painting can be dangerous. Having our insured painters reaching the tightest corners of your ceiling keeps you safe from any accidents. Although painting yourself may save money initially, fixing mistakes or treating accidental injuries could end up costing more than a professional.
4. We’re Old in a Good Way
Creating and restoring beauty is what we do. Jason Bertoniere, Inc. does things the “old” way. We apply and implement the same painting techniques and craftsmanship that painters used over fifty years ago while introducing modern products, styles, and trends. Jason has been in the painting business since 1998, and during the past 20 years has discovered the best, time-tested methods and materials. This means we know how to enhance the beauty of your historic home using techniques that will highlight the architecture of your space. We put time and detail into our work, using the best quality paints, supplies, and techniques to both transform and preserve your space.
