House Painting: Top Things to Remember
When you take on the job of house painting it is important to have a clear idea of what you need to do. There are many different colours on offer, a large variety of paints and brushes available, as well as various techniques of painting that you need to consider. Consider these key aspects before you paint your home:
- Colour and type: Before you even start painting your house it is important to make sure you have the right colour (and enough of it for two coats), as changing your mind later will be costly and time consuming. If you get half way through the project only to realise that you – and the paint supplier – have run out of the specific colour or they may have the same colour but the colour may vary as different batches may not be exactly the same and you might have to start from square one all over again. Also be sure to choose the right type of paint, depending on whether you are painting the inside or outside of the house.
- Technique and tools: Before you start, be sure to read up on the correct brush stroke techniques and painting styles for the paint you choose. Consult a professional when buying your paint to ensure you get the correct rollers and brushes to suit your needs, as well as reduce the labour involved in the painting process. A bit of preparation, such as using duct tape to cover light fixtures and using the right primer on your walls, can also save you a lot of time and effort.
- Drying times: Make sure you’re aware of the drying times. Some paints take longer to dry than others. All types of paint require a second layer. Consult the professional paint suppliers when purchasing your paint to be sure that you know what is required.
