With the thawing of the snows comes patio season for many Ottawa residents and people generally getting out more and doing all the fun stuff winter prevented us from doing. Not only does this mean not bundling up like crazy before leaving the house, but also all those home improvement projects that were literally physically impossible. In today’s blog post we’re going to go over our experience with Paint My Place, a local residential and commercial painting that has been operating for 7 years. Should you hire them, or perhaps save the cash and do the job yourself with some friends? We’ll explain below!
Benefits of Professional Painting Contractors
First, understand that the premium you pay for a local painting company like those that operate in Ottawa is well worth the cost for several reasons. First, you release yourself of the majority of the liability when you let them do the job. Assuming they have proper insurance, you’ll be legally safe if anyone falls off a ladder and gets hurt which is not the case if you have friends over to do the job or even worse, pay some random dude off Kijiji. Additionally, Ottawa’s local painting companies always have bigger teams which can get the nuances of larger projects done pretty fast. Ever got annoyed trying to paint the small crevices of your bathroom or get the trim right in your bedroom? Stop suffering and have a seasoned residential house painting crew deal with it. In our opinion, the expense is well worth it, and if you work from home in some capacity you can certainly have it deducted as a business expense.
Ottawa Painting Services For Rental Properties and Managers
Smart property management firms or even individuals managing their own tenants know the ROI on an annual fresh coat of paint is a no brainer. Getting the job done fast and on time is absolutely key though, and that’s where establishing a good relationship with a proven Ottawa house painter is going to pay dividends. Potential tenants don’t want their time wasted with elongated delays and disruptions to their daily routine, so if you can work the annual cost of home painting into your rents and find a good painter who you can trust this is an obvious choice.
“We hired Paint My Place and couldn’t be happier with the job that was done. The crew arrived on time, left the place spotless and was friendly and in total communication the entire time. Pricing was fair and we’ll definitely be using them for our rental properties and cottage in 2016″ – Kevin & Pauline
