We at Boysen strive to bring only products of excellent quality to Pinoys. That’s why one of our favorite things is hearing stories of DIYers happy with the result of their painting projects— thanks in part to Boysen Paints. We love to hear about readers’ personal painting experiences. It warms our hearts!
That’s why tutorial and informative blog posts are published regularly on Let It B not only to serve as guides but also to help encourage more Pinoys to paint. We want to show you that it can be easy (and fun!) to do home painting. With that said, though some painting projects can be DIYed, some do, of course, require a professional.
Professional painters have the knowledge, skills, and experience required for more complicated painting work. Here are some instances where it’s more advisable to consult or hire a professional for a painting project:
When more serious painting problems are present
Simple paint problems like cracking, mold, or rust can be dealt with by the handy homeowner. However, some paint problems are not as straightforward to solve as scraping off old paint.
It’s best to err on the side of caution when dealing with tricky painting problems. Because, when not resolved correctly, they often lead to more serious issues. With these, consider consulting with or hiring a professional. Here are a few examples: blistering paint due to water seepage and applying the wrong type of paint.
In blistering paint due to water seepage, the source of the water must first be identified before starting the repainting process. Unless the water leak is completely resolved, the blistering will arise again on the newly repainted surface.
On the other hand, there are signs that you’ve used the wrong paint for your surface, such as kumukulong pintura. Talk to a professional before trying to repaint to make sure you get the correct product the second time around and don’t end up with another failed attempt.
When it’s a complicated project you’re unfamiliar with
Painting concrete walls or even wooden kitchen cabinets are oftentimes fairly simple. Follow correct surface preparation then the recommended painting schedule or system—typically primer and topcoat—and you’re good to go.
However, when you’re dealing with projects that get a bit trickier, like varnishing wooden floors, hire a professional especially if you have no similar prior experience. To get the best results when varnishing floors, several steps must be taken—from surface preparation requiring sanding and applying wood filler (if necessary) to actual application involving several coats of sealer and topcoat. Missing out or messing up a step may ruin the project altogether.
Painting projects that can be dangerous may be left to the pros too. They have the safety knowledge and are also more adept at working on roofs and other projects that require scaffolding.
When you want to achieve a certain finish
Looking for something different? You don’t have to always go for smooth finishes. Boysen has products that give your walls more of an artistic flair! Boysen DecorE is a decorative paint for a distinct, textured finish. Boysen Marmorino gives your walls a marbled look. And, our Konstrukt Lunar Series shows you all the different industrial-style concrete looks you can achieve with Konstrukt Construction Chemicals products.
Applying these products does require a certain finesse as even the direction of strokes is important. Painters who have training with the use of these Boysen products will be able to get you the intended beautiful finish. Otherwise, applying these products without prior experience may yield subpar results.
Remember, there’s nothing wrong with asking for assistance, especially if it will save you money, effort, and time. Whether you’re DIYing or asking a pro for help, we wish you luck in your next painting project!
