Painting seems like the easiest of jobs when you think of it. A paintbrush and a roller are all you need to start kicking ass! Still, before embarking on this apparent picnic of yours, there are some basic steps you have to take into considerations.
The Weather Factor
Avoid rainy days during summer. With the added humidity after the rain has stopped, it will slow the drying process of fresh paint, and obviously, falling rain will wash off the paint on newly painted facades.
Ensure You Have Good, Top Quality Tools
Always remember that a top quality brush gives excellent coverage, and it avoids time-wasting hindrances of applying another layer of paint. An expensive paint brush holds more paint and can facilitate your job for both interior and exterior painting.
Protection Against Paint Drops
Ensure your floor, furniture and hardware are properly covered with a drop cloth or plastic sheet. It will save you enormous amounts of time cleaning and scraping surfaces of objects you accidentally dropped paint on.
Start From Top To Bottom
When you have finished cutting-in to the ceiling and floor, start painting your walls from top to bottom. A smooth vertical rolling will give your wall an even coat throughout the wall. And this rule applies to interior and exterior painting as well.
