Painting Secrets from the Pros

Painting Secrets from the Pros

Whether you are painting the exterior of your home or the interior, it is important that the job is completed properly. When painting, it is best to take your time in order to avoid making mistakes. To help with this process, we have laid out some of the top painting secrets that the pros use on a daily basis.

Sand the flaws. Before you begin painting, make sure your wall is smooth and flat. You should correct any holes or damaged spots before sanding the surface to get rid of any flaws.

Apply tape with a putty knife. One of the most important tasks in painting is applying painter’s tape correctly. To make sure you have a clean line, use a putty knife to flatten your tape carefully.

Mix your Paint. Naturally, it will take more than one gallon of paint to complete a room. To help keep the color consistent, start by mixing smaller gallons of paint together in one bucket.

Invest in your brushes. The brushes you choose will determine how the paint is placed on your walls. High quality brushes tend to leave a smooth, clean surface, which is preferable to lower quality options.

Work with the weather. Before painting, take some time to review the weather. It is usually best to wait until it is dry before you begin painting. This will help the paint to dry faster and more consistently.

Naturally, painting is definitely hard work. Plus, it can still be difficult to complete the job correctly, even when you follow these secrets fully.
