When Is the Time to Call a Professional Painter?

Making updates and learning how to keep your home in good repair is an essential part of homeownership. Refreshing your interior and exterior paint is an important part of maintaining your home. After all, paint does a lot more than make a space look pretty! Paint acts as a protective barrier between for your walls, trim, and doors, and exterior paint works doubly hard to defend your exterior surfaces from the elements.

Because paint plays such an important role in protecting one of your biggest investments, we recommend regular touch ups or re-coats in addition to applying a fresh color as if your tastes change. The most important question to ask before changing colors is, “Can I handle this project myself?”

Painting seems easy enough, right? You might want to pump the brakes for a second though. The trouble is that every painting project is a little different. We’ve put together a list of scenarios when it might be in you and your home’s best interest to put down the brush and enlist the help of a professional.

  1. When It's a Big Project: Painting your home’s exterior, repainting all your trim and doors, or changing the color in multiple rooms at once are time consuming projects that can drag on forever if you do them yourself. No one likes to live in chaos and sometimes you simply don’t have the extra time and energy to do a project justice.
  2. Jobs That Require Significant Prep Work: Prepping surfaces correctly is important to achieve a high quality finish. If your surface has major dents, holes, crumbling drywall, or sections that need replacing, you have a good bit of work ahead of you before your surface is ready for paint. Proper surface preparation can be time consuming and messy. A trained professional, experienced in those repairs will be able to complete this stage of the process more efficiently and successfully than the average homeowner.
  3. Painting That Requires Ladders or Scaffolding: Any painting job that requires climbing high ladders or operating special equipment is best left to the professionals. Ladder safety is incredibly important to avoid injury. Unless you’ve been trained to safely use this equipment, we strongly recommend hiring a high-quality painting company whose employees will all follow best practices.

Had spectrum paint our new addition inside and out and the rest of our first floor. They really did a great job. They were very professional and all of the painters took pride in their work. They showed up pleasant and left at the end of each day with a smile. They cleaned up like they weren't even there. I would highly recommend them.

Your professional workers just left and like the last time I am refreshingly amazingly Happy!! I wish I could afford to tip them! I told them in a world where everyone is out for themselves it is heartwarming to meet people of honest quality who do a perfect job with smiles on their faces. They go beyond my expectations. This time I asked them to caulk a hole in a wall that they did not paint. They not only caulked it for me - they found the paint and painted the spot for me! I am so proud of your company and thank you very much.

I am so happy we chose to work with Spectrum Painting! The office manager Natalie was very responsive in setting up our estimate. Initially Rich came our for a detailed estimate and walk through. After going through the numbers and reviews we decided to go with Spectrum. Although they did not offer the lowest cost we felt like we knew what we were paying for. We were in the process of moving into our new home in Wayne, NJ so we would not be onsite to project manage daily. On the day our project began, Rich and his crew leader Brian met us at the house to walk through the project and colors. Brian was absolutely amazing to work with. He would call or text with daily updates and even sent some photos to make sure we were happy with the colors we chose. I felt completely comfortable leaving Brian and his team at our house for the full week alone to complete the project. Everyone was extremely professional, kept the place clean, and wore masks, which is important to us because I am pregnant and my husband has an auto-immune disease. I can not recommend Spectrum Painting enough! Though they didn't offer us the lowest cost estimate there work was worth it! If anyone is looking for a painter reach out to their team. You won't be disappointed!

Each and every employee is professional, courteous and does meticulous work. The attention to detail is amazing and the care they take in the cleanup process is to be commended. I actually think they left my house cleaner than when they started the work. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 20!!! Completely exceeded my expectations!

This is the third project that Spectrum completed at our home, and it is with great pleasure to say that this was another PERFECT experience from beginning to end! We wish to thank the entire Spectrum team for their professionalism, knowledge, and excellent workmanship!! They are always courteous, reliable, and very experienced. Once again Rich was very helpful and attentive to our needs for this project. Pawel was our crew leader, and he was amazing! He was so meticulous, and he took great pride in his work. A job well done! Thank you again for your exemplary service. We definitely look forward to having Spectrum complete future projects at our home!
