We have all been in the house of an acquaintance or local business where it's clear that much of the work around the place has been done by an amateur.  There are those people that can just throw up some paint and it looks like it was done by Picasso.  In most cases, an amateur's work is pretty easy to spot.  Basic wall painting is usually pretty simple to get the hang of, but then home fashion dictates the need for wall trim and the whole project goes out the window.  You end up with the wall color on your trim and the trim color on your wall.  It's all very frustrating.  You could just paint all of it the same color, but that looks rather boring.  Painting trim molding really is one of those jobs better left up to the professionals.

Painting Trim Molding

There are several reasons why you should consider hiring a professional to paint your trim molding and everything else for that matter.  The first reason that comes to mind is that they know how to do it properly.  When a trained person does this kind of work, you end up with clean, crisp lines and perfect technique.  When an amateur does it, well, not so much.  Of course, it will cost a bit more to have someone experienced paint for you, but you won't have to endure the snickering from your family and friends when they visit.  Odds are good you can live without the comments about your eyesight.

Another reason to think about hiring a professional for painting trim molding is that the professionals have the right equipment to get the job done right.  If you think it's expensive to hire a professional, just wait until the list of small tools adds up and you figure out that you will only use them, badly, once.  Suddenly paying someone who can provide a well done job doesn't seem so bad.
