Painting Your House: More Daunting Than it Needs to Be

Guest Post By: Zeke Nicholson


There are a number of reasons why you might want to paint your house. Maybe you are no longer satisfied with how the house looks, or maybe you’re thinking about selling your home and want to make it more attractive to potential buyers. Whatever the reason may be, tons of homeowners are hesitant to begin the project, given the sizeable nature of the undertaking. Whether you’re doing the labor yourself or hiring someone to do the work, time is money. The longer it takes to complete the project, the more cash comes out of your pocket, so it’s best to have a solid plan to tackle the paint job effectively and efficiently.

Doing the manual labor yourself is definitely the most cost-effective practice, so if you can afford the time, it’s probably the way to go. Once you’ve done the initial steps required for an exterior paint job—scraping, sanding, etc.—it’s on to prepping for the actual painting. This means buying paint trays, brushes, rollers, and drop cloths, and strapping in for hours upon hours of painting. Here we are again: the prospect of actually completing this job is so overwhelming that it makes you wonder if it’s even worth it. Why not try a different approach? More and more homeowners are discovering that a quick and easy way to go about painting your home is to use a paint sprayer machine.

Paint sprayers have the major advantage of doing away with the messy drips and runs typically caused by rollers and brushes, and they can complete the same job in a fraction of the time. Let’ consider the Paint Zoom paint sprayer, for example. Paint Zoom has an industrial strength 650-watt motor and three distinct spray options (horizontal, vertical, and pin point) so you can get a great coat on any surface with no mess and no hassle. You can also finely and precisely attack the areas that would otherwise be hard to reach or evenly paint. It’s also lightweight and specifically formulated to utilize just the right amount of paint, so you aren’t overspending on paint.

Painting your house doesn’t have to be the impossible task it’s widely thought to be. With a paint sprayer, you can complete areas that would take hours with a roller/brush in a matter of minutes. It’s cost effective and easy to use, and at the end of the day you’ll be standing in front of a house that you are proud to claim as your own.

Hello there! You have such a very informative and interesting page! I'll be looking forward to visit this page again and for your other posts as well. Keep it up! Thank you so much for sharing us some information about this one. Brushes are best stored in a purpose made brush keeper, a box on which a wire could be suspended. The wire would be threaded through the hole in a brush's handle so as to suspend the brush in a cleaning solution without allowing the brush to sit on the bottom of the container and thus cause spreading of the bristles. The solution would also prevent hardening of the brushes and oxidization. These were generally rectangular and stored several brushes. A lid would enclose the brushes and keep them free from dust. The professionals at Premiere Pros are well-trained interior painters that do the job for you quickly, easily and with outstanding results. We use the latest technology in paints that are environmentally safe and of the highest quality. For interiors, we use BenjaminMoore Aura paint.

Hello! Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about professional painter in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about professional painter.
Although the brush and the fabric roller were the tools most readily associated with the painter, foam brushes are now commonly used for precise work requiring a straight line. Foam brushes can also be used to create a smoother surface using less paint that dries more quickly than brush applications. Like fabric rollers, foam rollers can also create patterns in the painted surface. Foam rollers are available in a variety of professional materials for high-quality applications. Although used in a variety of applications, the foam roller is commonly used during the painting of doors to produce an extremely smooth finish.

I do like that this type of information is easily accessible. I was considering trying to start a painting company with my window tinting company, but there's just not enough information out there. Thanks for sharing!
