We are going to touch base on painting. Why you ask? Well its simple, painting is generally a great start to money savings when it comes to home renovation.
For most homeowners painting is one phase in the construction process that is often taken on to save costs in the project. Admittedly this is not always as simple as it sounds, put some paint on a brush and go to town right? There is definitely technique and finesse required if you decide to take on painting during your project. There is a mountain of resources out there on the internet, some are good, some are not, but browsing through the different videos and libraries you should be able to find a solid starting point. However often times it isn't just about the cost savings alone.
Sense of Accomplishment: Completing the painting project on your own is a great boost in satisfaction in knowing you were able to take part in making your space look the way that it does (hopefully on the positive side...)
Flexibility: We are LDS Specialists often work with our homeowners if they would like to paint their own remodels, now we do offer a schedule to our clients so we would need to know how much time they need so that we can incorporate them into the production schedule, however depending on the remodel you are having done you may have more flexibility in painting and fitting it into your own busy scheduled.
Learning Experience: Often times homeowners just want to learn. Why better than to paint your own house and learn at the same time, generally the tools required wouldn't be as expensive as learning how to tile or even trim carpentry.
While painting your house yourself has its advantages, it's important to consider factors such as the size of the project, your skill level, and the time you have available. If the project is extensive or requires specialized skills often times it may be the wiser choice to have a professional tackle it. Let's face it, no one wants to do a project twice in the same timeframe.
