How Easy Is Do It Yourself Painting?While house painting is by far the most popular do-it-yourself home improvement activity, and it's easy to see why, there is more to house painting than you know. Why do people paint their homes? There's no better, more affordable way to freshen up rooms than with a new coat of paint. While there are certain house painting tips that professionals know, there are many things that a painter knows. Such as… Don't paint during wet weather. Humidity means slow drying and drips, so don't paint on rainy days. And if you have to paint when it's wet, use slow drying paint to correct errors before you move to your next coat. Also, do not overwork, as it will show once you're finished. Another thing to realize is that there is a difference between exterior painting and interior painting. Which leads to the most important step a house painter can take: planning. The first step we take in house painting is to design the scope of the project. We consider all parts of the house or room that need painting. It is easy to put all your focus on painting walls, but we inspect the ceilings, cabinets and trim, and for the exterior, the porch, the door, the shutters, the garage, etc. This helps us determine all the necessary parts of the painting project for each room.
Preparation is Important to a Professional Painting ContractorTo get a great-looking finish coat and the beautiful, long-lasting results you expect, we take the time to ensure that the surface to be painted is clean, dry and smooth and coated with the correct primer. We use various tools such as ladders, wire brushes, paint scrapers, putty knives, wood filler and spackling paste to prepare a surface for painting. Next we remove obstacles & hazards. We take our time to look around for hazards and rather than painting around obstacles, we take them off when we can. As a result, you will get a neater finish. It will be necessary to place drop cloths on items within your work zone that cannot be moved. When removing any items with screws, we tape the screws onto the object. For items like door knobs and switch plates, we place them inside storage containers or plastic bags. This will keep these items together till when we need them.
That's the difference we make. We are 100% professional house painters.
