If you’ve been considering painting your home without the help of an exterior painting contractor, you’ve come to the right place. Here are five tips and tricks to paint your home the right way.
1. Pick the right season
This is the most crucial part of starting any paint job. You don’t want to get started on the paint and have a thunderstorm wash your hard work away. Schedule the paint job for summer. The warm weather helps the paint dry faster and you don’t have to worry about rain.
2. Choose the right paint
Don’t skimp out on the paint. Buy the best quality paint you can afford for the job. Good quality paint will last you longer, spread evenly and cost a lot less in the long run because you won’t need to repaint your home soon after.
3. Sanding and priming
This is extremely important to remember. The paint won’t adhere to an uneven surface. So it is important that you sand any peeling paint off and add a generous coat of primer before getting started on the painting.
4. Mix your paint
This right here is a very important tip from the pros. You’ll be using multiple cans of paint to cover the entire exterior. To keep the color consistent throughout, mix all of the cans of paint in one large container.
5. Protect your landscape
Remember to buy some tarps to cover up the ground and any landscaping around your home. Painting can get quite messy and covering up the ground before you start can save you money and time that would be spent on cleaning up after.
