Of all the feedback we hear from our clients, one of the most commonly asked questions is: “Do I need to hire a professional painter to paint my kitchen cabinets or can I do it myself?” With over 65 years of experience as the premier painter in Boulder, CO, Jacobsen Brothers has the expertise to confidently answer your question. We understand how it is tempting to paint your own cabinets to save money, but we advise you hire a certified professional instead.
Here are 3 reasons why we recommend hiring a professional to paint your kitchen cabinets:
- Brush strokes can’t be erased.
The end product is the most important consideration in a cabinet painting project. Homeowners who do it themselves often find that brush strokes, or the bumps caused by a roller, result in an unsatisfactory finished product. It is nearly impossible to avoid these stroke lines, drips or blemishes that are telltale signs of an amateur project.
Instead, it is advisable to have the professionals at Jacobsen Brothers spray on the paint and the finish to have a proper, even coat to give the gloss and luster that you want in your kitchen cabinets. In some places, a special brush may be required to get the exact look and your friends at Jacobsen Brothers will know just what to do to give you a professional finished product.
The role of the kitchen in the house cannot be overstated. As the room that is the main hub for family life, your kitchen deserves to have just the right touch with the cabinetry’s finish to be truly spectacular.
- Multiple steps means a lot of time.
Many homeowners underestimate the amount of labor involved in a proper cabinet painting job. If done right, there are many steps that have to be taken in stripping, priming, sanding, caulking, painting, more sanding and drying in-between coats. Then the cabinets need to be remounted and lights and door pulls installed. All of that adds up to a lot of time and sweat invested in the job.
If you’re doing it all yourself, you’ll likely be snatching time to work on it here and there and the project can really drag out, taking much longer than you anticipated. If you hire the professionals at Jacobsen Brothers, we will spend all the time needed and keep the steps progressing rapidly so you have your cabinets back in a shorter amount of time.
- Making the right decisions the first time.
With so many choices of paints, colors and application techniques, it’s easy to make a mistake and end up with a color or finish that isn’t right for your kitchen. At Jacobsen Brothers, we make sure you have all the information to make the right decisions the first time. For your convenience, we offer a range of services that includes design consultation. Our decades of experience with pairing the right style with the right customer makes us an invaluable partner in cabinet painting projects across the region.
