When you want a change in your home to suit how you feel about your home, status in life or just feel like doing something different with your home nothing does this better than painting your home. This requires you to take time and plan what you want, what color suits your home and this may require you to seek professional exterior house painting services but if you have great taste you can do the job yourself.
In the earlier days people used to do the painting for themselves but with all the tasks involved from repairing the wall, to scrubbing the previous paint from the walls, has made most people to sought the services of a professional painter. Let’s take a look at what it requires for one to be a professional painter;
Step1; the first thing to do as a painter is to asses the condition of the walls to make sure that the can be painted and where they may require repairing and how much it will cost if the walls require repairs if it’s a new house applying the first coat is relatively easier than older homes.
If the walls need scrapping or to be power washed by a machine, as a painter you should check the walls again to make sure there is no damage to the walls and if any have occurred to make sure the wall is repaired. This will make the walls ready for painting as it facilitates better results. This process is vital because this guarantees that when you paint later the paint will not peel off.
Step2; mix the color with a paint mixer as this allows the color to remain the same as you continue to paint,many people skip this step and the color changes as they continue to paint this makes the walls look uneven.
Place they exact amount of paint as directed by the instructions and while painting keep overlapping the edges while they are still wet to prevent it from getting edge marks.
Step 3; when you have done the two steps let the paint dry and later apply a protective layer to protect the walls from deteriorating and peeling off due to weather elements like humidity and heat that destroy paint when done the wrong way.
