Clean dirty surfaces. Painting the surface of the wall while it is still greasy and dirty will contribute for the paint to easily chip or peel off. So before you start painting, make sure that it is clean and free of dirt.
Create a consistent colour. If you are going to mix different colours to create one unique colour make sure to mix the paints together in a 5-gallon bucket so that you will eliminate the chances of creating inconsistency in painting.
You have to estimate the amount of paint you are going to use and make sure to add more than less as you can always place the leftover back in cans so you can use them again.
Avoid lap marks. Lap marks are created when you roll over paint that is already or partly dried which will make the ugly stripes. To avoid this, you have to maintain a wet edge by starting near a corner and rolling up and down.
Don’t just cut the tape loose. Once you are done with painting, do not just pull the tape you placed off the trim as there is a tendency that you will also pull the paint that is attached to the tape. Cut it loose first before pulling the tape by using a box cutter knife to slice through.
Painting your home can really be a pleasurable project especially if you have all the time to do this. If you don’t however, and you still want to make your home looks fresh and new, just ask for the help of a painter and they will do the house painting for you.
