“It’s cheaper to do it yourself” Myth

We’ve all heard it said. Perhaps you have uttered these words yourself at some point. We think it’s cheaper to paint ourselves than to acquire the services of a professional.

Choosing Paint

Walk into any major hardware store in Sydney and you will be met with aisle after aisle of various brands, textures and colours of paint. Choosing the right one for your needs can be overwhelming. Often the only recommendation you have of the credentials of the paint is the sales pitch written on the can or in the carefully placed brochure.

Perhaps you can make a choice on price. Yet, in reality the cost difference between the high grade products and low grade paints is not as much as you would think. Our team at Panache are able to draw on our years of experience and recommend the best paint for your needs.

Prepare for lasting results

Just like not all paints are the same, not all preparation is the same. Getting the right finish that will last is not just a matter of getting the right paint. Painting your house or office can enhance a space for relatively little money, but if the job is not done well the joy you get from it may be short lived. Paint should never be applied to dirty or greasy surfaces. Thorough preparation such as proper cleaning of walls, crack filling and sealing, as well as small details like ensuring power outlets and light switches are taped over are all essential to achieving the highest quality finish which will last.

Choosing a Painter

The difference in painters’ ability, knowledge and skill can be huge from the do it yourself home decorator to the professional, and even between professional companies. The cheapest will not always the best. Many times there is a reason why someone is cheap, at best they may have simply underestimated the real costs of the job, which can lead to a rush job on your property or perhaps the use of low quality products.
