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.
Exterior house painting color ideas.
in this video by ABN Painting we are working on exterior a two-story stucco house and this is the look of the house before we started preparation work.
There's quite a bit of paint that is peeling especially around the trim a few holes in stucco.
On a back patio ceiling joint tape is missing, on the front patio ceiling there is a lot of peeling paint, metal side gate has a little bit of rust on the bottom.
We scraped any loose paint by hand and applied elastomeric patch to scraped areas to fix any hairline cracks.
To fix any larger cracks and in trim fascia we used latex caulk and after we squeezed it out of the tube using caulking gun we used the brush to spread it evenly throughout the trim.
We musked all windows using plastic and green tape.
Green tape gives approximately three days of clean removal.
If the tape is removed within three days from the windows it will not leave any residual glue.
Using green tape and 12-inch masking paper we masked off staircase and the wooden patio that will not be painted.
We masked off the unpainted block wall.
To protect the floor on the back patio we used paper around the perimeter and covered the middle witrh tarps.
After scraping loose paint near the foundation of the house we applied elastomeric patch.
The side of the house that belongs to the neighbor we covered with paper.
On the front of the house we covered with tarps all concrete surfaces.
To protect roof shingles from all spray we run a 12-inch masking paper next to the stucco and when we're ready to spray paint the second level we'll cover the rest of the shingles with tarps.
We fixed all holes in stucco using stucco mix.
On the front patio ceiling we scraped all loose paint.
Re-textured the ceiling using drywall mud and using latex caulk filled any gaps between the stucco and the drywall.
On the back patio ceiling after we applied joint tape we textured the ceiling as well.
We're sending both ceilings on the front as well as on the back before applying the primer.
To prime repaired areas on the ceilings we're using general-purpose primer ultra grip by Dunn Edwards.
It is of dark color for no specific purpose it is just leftovers from one of our previous jobs.
After we are done with priming we apply the first coat of paint of the body color.
Before spray-painting metal gate we're using an oil-based primer to cover the areas that are rusty.
After we are finished spray painting the body of the house we're using a mini roller and a brush to paint the trim fascia.
After were done with cleanup and touch-ups this is the look of the house.
