House Painting Services for Beautiful Homes

House painting services is an essential part of building your home and maintaining it.  They way your house looks influence other people’s perception of you and the others living with you.  Aside from this aesthetic component, the way your house is painted also has more practical benefits. 

The right kind of paint and the proper painting process

can protect your home from external factors like UV rays, moisture, and extreme weather (when considering exterior painting).  This is why you should not take the process of painting your house lightly.  No matter what size your house is, having it painted the right way can improve its appearance and protect it from damage at the same time. 

There is a wide variety of paint and paint colors available in the market today. 

Though it looks easy to make it a DIY project and paint job that looks like it’s been professionally done, exterior house painting services actually requires in-depth planning.  Consider these factors:

Wall surface – the material, texture, and condition of the wall surface affects the paint job.  Painting on a wall with a smooth surface often leaves a better impression. Imperfections such as excess cement plaster, dirt, and mildew should be removed before you start painting. The cracks and junctures in between the walls should also be filled with caulking.

Quality of primer – the primer is the preparatory coating, which is a major step in house painting.  It helps the paint to adhere to the surface of the wall for a long time.  This step should not be done hastily.  If you are repainting, primers help create a good surface on top of the old paint.

Quality of paint – the most common types of paint for external applications are latex and alkyd.  Both have their own pros and cons. Latex paints are immune to cracks, while alkyd paints are stain-resistant. However, alkyd uses a lot of paint thinner for cleanup and it usually leaves a stronger smell. It is up to you what paint to choose, but latex paint with 100% acrylic resin is the most recommended.

Colors – you can choose your colors based on your own preferences. There are some neighborhoods, however, that have restrictions on house colors.  Check with your local neigborhood group or building authorities to make sure that you are not violating any regulations on this matter.  If there are no restrictions, you are free to choose your paint color and you can be as creative in your choice. 

Methods of application – our house painting services uses brush and roller  and are most commonly used in the interior room painting especially if it is a repeat in an existing home and already occupied and lived it. If the home is a brand-new home or not currently occupied and there is plenty of space to work in another method will be, the spray and roll method is the best possible way to apply.  It makes use of a sprayer to disperse paint and a roller to create a good finish. For the finishing touches, apply paint to the details of your house such as doors and windows.

In order to achieve a satisfying outcome, take your time in doing these procedures. A quality result is not just an overnight plan, so it is best to think carefully on how you want your house to be.
