The cheapest painter in Melbourne is yourself! Once you decide to paint your house, the cost of getting the job done will be one of the main factors to take into consideration. Naturally, you will want to keep these costs as low as possible. In fact, many Melbourne residents simply choose to paint their houses on their own after all there are so many DIY tutorials on the subject! But beware…. this approach should only be taken when contemplating simple painting jobs and not for big projects such as painting the entire house. Unless you are an expert, there is a high chance you will do an inadequate job – correct preparation work and product selection is paramount for a professional finish.

Hiring a cheap painter in Melbourne

Here are some reasons why procuring the services of a cheap painter is not such a great idea:

  • Low quality – even cheap painters in Melbourne are still in business and their goal is to make money. Since they do not make much from what they are charging their customers, most of them try to increase what they make through savings on painting supplies. That means they will use cheap paint, equipment and other supplies resulting in poor quality work at the end of the day. In addition, most are not too enthusiastic about their work as they lack the necessary financial incentives to do a better job.
  • Deadlines and budgets – it is very rare that a cheap painter brings professionalism to the job. In most cases, the prices that they quote are usually under-calculated and need to be revised upward along the way to get the job done. That translates into an inflated budget. Plus many of them will take on too many jobs at a time and may not be able to complete your painting project within the agreed timeline.
  • Costs – while the cost of hiring a cheap painter is initially lower, you may end up paying more in the long run as you incur other costs. For instance inadequate prep work may lead to prematurely peeling paint and you may eventually have to hire someone else to correct the mistakes that were made.
