Tips for Your Home Painting Project

Are you preparing to introduce new life to your home by painting its faded, chipped, or just-plain-old-and-boring walls? Before you get started, there are several things you should know. From obtaining the necessary equipment and tools to ensuring that your paint job is one that will last, this guide can help you prepare for your home painting project.

Procure Paint and Supplies
Before you can even think about painting your home, you need to obtain the paint colors and tools that are necessary for your project. You can rent paint sprayers, power washers, and other tools from an equipment rental center if you would rather not buy them. Make sure you purchase enough paint for your project.

Clean Walls First
Paint sticks best to freshly cleaned walls. Before embarking on your paint job, sponge bathe your walls from top to bottom and allow them to dry.

Apply Primer Before Paint
Paint primer makes a great surface on which to paint. Neutralize the surfaces you plan to paint with a primer before applying paint in order to give your paint job a uniform feel and best showcase the paint colors you are using.

Paint Only When It’s Dry Out
Regardless of whether you are painting inside or outside of your home, try not to paint unless it is dry out. Humidity slows down the drying process even for indoor paint and should be avoided as much as possible throughout the duration of your painting project.
