Professional Painting in Tigard – Trusted Experts
The word DIY or do it yourself is becoming very popular. It does not just stay as a phrase but an action plan as well. House painting is one of them. More and more people wanted to learn to do things by themselves instead of hiring a professional to do it. The reasons are noble and practical. One of them is earning you a few to several bucks of savings.
One thing though that "Do it Yourselfers" misses out is the skills and expertise of professional painters. They have developed this skills through years of painting experiences. Most likely the painting job of amateurs is not as sharp and professional looking as compared to professional house painters. Although this is the case, it should not discourage want to be painters to start doing their walls. Here are a few tricks or tips to make your painting strokes and painting job in general as tidy as possible.
Another painting tool is the roller. Just a quick tip, just roll in one direction - away from you. Start at the middle of the wall not at the edge to offload any extra paint. Always roll from top to bottom as smoothly as you can. Generally it will take about 2 to 3 coats to finish the task.
After your painting job always clean up the clutter. Paint residues on your brush can dry up easily especially on a hot a day. If you will use it the next day, cover it with a wet cloth. Don't wait till the paint brittles on the fibres of your brush, you may also soak it in water immediately after painting.
The Basics of House Painting
Below are five important things to consider before painting the exterior of your home yourself.
(1) Proper preparation of all surfaces to be painted is paramount. Improper preparation is the main cause of paint failure and/or reduced life of the finish. Surface preparation can take as little as a few hours, while some require days to complete properly. All this time and work and you have yet to open your first can of paint! For some, the time required and the knowledge needed for this step was all they had to hear before calling us in, but not for everyone. Others who completed projects on their own were happy with the outcome for the first few years or so after painting. It wasn't until the eventual premature failure coupled with the thought of how much time & money they had spent to repaint on their own that they eventually decided to leave it to the professionals the second time around.
(2) It's not that high... or is it. The height of your home can be a bit deceiving from the ground, and let's not forget about trying to safely place a ladder on a garage roof to paint the side of the second story. Proper equipment such as the correct ladders and ladder leveling tools required to safely perform the preparation and painting of high reach areas can be very costly. Aside from these costs, if you have a fear of heights, painting a two story home may not be the best choice you make.
