6 Tips to Make Your House Look Better than Your Neighbor’s

exterior house paintingBesides the obvious reason of your house looking better than your neighbor’s, exterior house painting has many benefits. If done correctly, it can also prevent rain or dew from leaking underneath the surface, causing damage to the foundation. The extensive preparation work will allow for you to see anything that needs to be repaired before the damage hurts your home significantly. A new coat of paint can also give your house an immediate facelift and bring more value to your home. It’s a very time-consuming and labor intensive project, but with a few tips, it’ll be easier to tackle.

 

#1  Have a Clean Surface

We’ve all heard that preparation is the key to success, and there is nothing different when it comes to painting a house. Paint will not stick to dirty surfaces and will peel off if it’s not applied on a clean and dry surface.

Powerwashing your exterior is the most effective way to remove dirt and debris, and also be sure to take time to get rid of any mold or mildew that has built up over the years. The next step is to scrape away the paint that has peeled away or bubbled. If you have a lot of areas where the paint has peeled, it could be a sign of moisture that has been let inside. You can use a standard paint scraper or an electric one if there are a lot of problem areas.

 

#2  Sand and Prime

After your house has been cleaned and the old paint is gone, you’ll need to sand down where you scraped in order to make a smooth surface for painting. The next thing is to apply a latex primer. The latex will form a barrier and protect your home from moisture that could cause problems down the line.

 

#3  Patch-Up Work

Be sure to apply caulking to areas such as gutters and windows to make sure that there are no gaps for water to get inside and cause damage. Also, be sure to cover windows and other parts of your home before beginning your painting excursion.

 

#4  Buy Weather-Proof Paint

This is one of the most important things that you can do for your home. The foundation in your home stretches and bends depending on the weather, which causes cracks and other damage due if it is exposed to the elements. Buying paint that is waterproof and has an elastomeric membrane will act as a barrier to protect the foundation from the sun, wind, rain or other elements. Paint with these qualities is very thick and is made to be applied in layers, and the layers act as the barrier.

 

#5  Choosing the Right Color

It’s significantly easier to choose a color if you like the color it was before and you just want to give your home a bit of a makeover. However, if you want a complete change, it’s a bit more difficult.

If you want a dark color, you must realize that they fade a lot faster than lighter colors do. They also absorb more heat, which makes a significant difference if you live in a place that has a frequently warm climate. In addition, more primer must be applied if you want to switch from a dark color to a light color. This can get quite expensive, but it is completely feasible.

If you want a bright color like blue or even yellow, it’s best to choose a color that’s muted. Bright colors will look overwhelming in large quantities, and they will be prone to fading faster in the sun than lighter colors.

Home improvement stores now have computer software that make it easier for you to see what colors will look like on your home, and you can also purchase small samples to test so you can see them in person.

 

#6  The Painting Process

When painting, it is important for you to start from the top down. This prevents paint from dripping and from accidental removal of the paint, such as if your arm rubs against the paint.

The best time to paint is when the temperature is in the 70s or 80s so that the paint does not overheat or freezes. Also, follow the shade when you paint. This is so that you don’t apply too much or too little paint depending upon where the sun hits it. Speaking of sun, paint should never be in direct sunlight.

The last tip for the process is to keep a wet edge. This means to overlap the areas that have most recently been painting. Doing this will give you even coats with no streaks.

10 Tips for Interior House Painting

indoor paintingWhether you’ve just moved into a new house and are excited to decorate and make it your own home, or you’ve just decided to spruce up the inside of your home with a fresh coat of paint, it can be quite a messy and time-consuming task. Although it is a lot of hard work, but when you sit back and admire your craftiness, you’ll feel quite good about what you’ve accomplished. You can turn interior house painting into less of a daunting task and more into a fun project with the right tools, know-how, and attitude. To help you with this, we’ve given you a top 10 list of tips that will make your painting project a lot easier to manage.

 

1) Choose Your Colors Wisely

The first and most important factor you should consider is what color or colors you are going to be using. You can go to your local home improvement store and pick out color swatches and decide which colors will complement each other. You can take the samples home and decide what colors look the best in the room or rooms that you’re going to paint. There is nothing worse than spending all of your time and effort on a room with colors that clash and then you have to go through the whole painting process over again.

 

2) Start High and Paint Top Down

You should always start from the highest point, and then paint downwards from there. If you have any paint that drips, this will prevent it from ruining your freshly painted walls.

 

3) Take Advantage of Painter’s Tape

It takes a lot of time to put tape down, but it is well worth it in the end. The tape prevents you from painting into areas where you don’t want the paint to go. It also helps you paint a straight line, which is extremely important because every flaw shows up in paint. Also, be sure that the tape you use is specific for paint and will not cause any paint to come off along with the tape.

 

4) Don’t Buy Cheap Supplies

It’s easy to want to just buy the cheapest brushes and rollers that you can, but you also get what you pay for. Your rationale may be that you’re only going to paint one time, so you can go ahead and buy the cheap stuff. However true that may be, buying cheap supplies in bulk does not leave you with the highest quality. A lot of times, the roller covers can leave fuzz on your walls, and cheap brushes can leave streaks on your walls instead of a smooth finish, no matter how many times you paint over the streaks. The streaks may not be from your lack of artistic ability; they may be from your lack of quality supplies.

 

5) Plan a Day for Prep Work

They always say that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and the same rule can be applied for big painting projects. A day or two before the Big Day, take down everything that is hanging on the walls and patch up the holes. Doing this the day before will give the patches a significant amount of time to dry. It may be tempting to want to paint over holes and cracks, but just remember that everything shows up in the paint. Move the furniture to a different room, and cover any light fixtures with plastic bags, but be sure to take out the light bulbs! If you’re moving in or out, then this task is a lot easier for you because the room will be empty and all you need to worry about is putting tarp down on the floor. Doing the prep work a day early will make the painting task less stressful because you’ll be splitting up what needs to be accomplished.

 

6) Keep a Wet Edge

When painting, it’s important to constantly keep a wet edge, and be sure to always paint away from the edge. If you paint over dry paint, you will get overlap marks, so having a wet edge prevents these marks.

 

7) Keep All Supplies in Sight

As silly as it may sound, some people leave their supplies scattered across their homes, which makes painting so much harder. Keep all of your supplies together so that you can find everything easily. Create a tool station that will have all of your brushes, rollers, paint, drip rags, and anything that you’ll need.

 

8) A Little Goes a Long Way

When it comes to painting, most people think it’s best to put gobs of paint on their brushes and rollers thinking that it will be easier to spread around and that they won’t have to do a second coat. This is not the case. You should apply thin coats and apply a lot of them. Yes, it will take a lot more time, but the end result is so much better. The whole point of painting your home is for it to look good, so you should take the time to make it worth it.

 

9) The Finish

As important as the paint is, the finish is just as important.

  • Flat– A flat finish offers a matte look because it doesn’t reflect light. It is ideal for covering imperfections. Use a flat finish if the room you’re painting will most likely suffer some wear and tear.
  • Satin and Eggshell– They offer a slightly shiny finish, and are very popular for walls.
  • Semi Gloss and Glossy– These are very glossy and are mostly used for trims.

 

10) Don’t Be Afraid to Get Creative

Just because you have to paint a solid color, doesn’t mean that it has to stay a solid color! Feel free to paint in designs or drawings on top of the finished product. There are stencils available in various designs that you can purchase. You can also paint scenes or landscapes over the wall. Just be sure to plan everything from the color to the size to the location so that you don’t have to go through the painting process all over again.
