Tell tale signs you’re in need of a decorator!

Today’s post will shed some light on scenarios when you’re probably best leaving it to the professionals, even with D.I.Y being so prevalent as a hobby, a way to save a few pennies and spend your free time doing bits it can be easy to get out of your skill remit.

So in no particular order:

  • You decide to tackle the redecoration of the spare room, in free time obviously, 2 years later it still bares resemblance to a half written off dungeon that no sane guest would ever sleep in.  Subsequently it is now the dumping ground for all manner of goodies, including the home gym kit you promised yourself would get used this year.
  • The state of your wood leaves a lot to be desired.  Flaky, peely, lifeless and certainly out of shape.  The idea of making it look nice seems appealing.  The prospect of many hours of sanding, filling and making good does not, think of many other enjoyable things you could be doing with your free time.
  • Someone before has done a less than satisfactory job on the paintwork, with each inspection and layer that you peel back, just like an onion, the mystery seems to keep unraveling.  How long do you want to spend uncovering the previous owners bodges?
  • When assessing your previous painting attempts, your friend asks which child of yours done the job!
  • Each time you decide to tackle a job you end up cursing, instantly regretting it and not having very much fun in the process.
  • You decide to try your hand at patterned wallpaper…..


I’m sure there’s plenty of other scenarios out there, why not leave a comment with some of your favourites




Why choose a Professional Painter?

So if you’re like most guys out there you probably figure that free time could be spent doing D.I.Y tasks.

How much do you really enjoy home decorating, or painting?

A bit of painting, some wallpapering and if you are very lucky even some removal of that lovely old wood-chip wallpaper someone thought would be a good idea 30 or so years ago may seem like a good idea at the time, but isn’t always the case.

However I’m guessing that REALLY you’d prefer to have some time to relax, catch up with some friends for a beer, play outside with the kids, take the Mrs away for a weekend.

Probably a whole lot more activities you could choose as more fun and desirable than a weekend of sanding, getting dusty, having to clean up and potentially get paint places you don’t want to!

The point here is that your time could be better spent doing other things.

Having fun.

Enjoying life.

Chances are you probably work hard enough each week.

By getting a professional painter to come and do the job for you chances are you’ll receive the following:

  • A better finish overall.
  • A quicker job than if you were to tackle it in evenings and weekends.
  • Less mess and disruption to your life.
  • Longer lasting results.
  • Happier family.

Another way to think of it may be if you own a nice car, say an Aston Martin, who doesn’t want one of those right?!

Well if it needed servicing or fixing would you take it to the local greased up guy down the road, he’s most likely not worked on one of these or if he has it’s not an everyday affair.

Or do you take it to the local Aston dealership that specialises in this make of car?


The same applies to painting, wallpapering and most other jobs around the home.

If you are in need of a freshen up, a complete home redecoration or perhaps you have a list of little bits and bobs that’s been building up for a while now.
