Says Quite frankly anybody can paint my house
- But the question is how well?
- Knowledge about paints and how to use them?
- How long will the home painting take?
- Do I have the proper equipment?
- How will the paint job look when I am done coating.
If the residence is a new home and has never been painted and contains only raw drywall and raw lumber, you have to become preparatory paints such as primers and distinctive wood primer and also you may need special sap killing primers that will prevent sap from leaking through the paint creating ugly blemish on the painted door frame or window frame or baseboard.
Preparing Your Home for Painting
You should also know how to prepare any nail holes or adjoining pieces of trim. Years ago we used to use window glazing putty to fill the holes after the carpenters had nailed trim baseboards, windows or door casings on the jam leaving a small hole would have to be full of something in that the majority of the time was that the window glazing. But there are other methods of filling holes and cracks such as using joint compound, but that would take some time for it to dry and then you may have to sand it. But this would make the absolute smoothest nail hole filling. And of course, you would also have to spot anywhere on the new wood whether it needed any shellac to seal any knots which may lead to the paint.
And of course let us talk about painting walls, here, everybody thinks they could paint the walls and they probably can but how well and how quickly (quickly Referring to Speed and Accuracy Of the Job).
A professional painter has to be able to paint a nice straight line between the wall and the ceiling in a good steady pace leaving no irregularities at the painted edge. This comes from years of experience which in turn provides the painter confidence to move along quickly understanding that he will be able to do the job the appropriate way. There’s no such thing as a one coat paint job if you’re searching for the superior paint job. Unless you’re going over paint that you painted very recently the odds are that on very close inspection will see either a frame around the wall or blotchy walls, or just simply you can see through to the original paint job.
Knowledgeable About Different Paints
Painter should have good knowledge of different kinds and varieties of paints available. It is best to have experience with them all so you’ll be able to discuss an answer on any questions about paint colors and paint sheens and paint quality. Not all paints are created equal, and not all paints perform as advertised.
