Professional Painting Tips and Services
Painting can be a very rewarding venture. This form of home repair can transform a room from boring and ordinary to sassy and alive! However, done without the proper care and equipment, it can also bring a bit of “what in the world happened in here?” into a room.
With help from Mr. Handyman and our painting experts, your newly refurbished room will look updated and refreshed. We’re the professionals who have a minimum of 10 years of experience tackling both major and minor home repairs.
If you would prefer to paint your room solo, here are few simple tips from Mr. Handyman that will help ensure your project is a successful one.
- Same direction. Despite the fact that rollers offer a more uniform appearance over large surfaces, many people still prefer to use a paintbrush. While this look is more desirable to many, it can be incredibly time consuming, depending upon your surface area. If you choose to go this route, ensure that you are painting in the same direction throughout the room. If you waver from this pattern, it will show in the finished work.
- Proper equipment. Ensure that you have all of the necessary equipment before your job begins. This list should include all painting supplies, the actual paint itself and any accessories, including, but not limited to, step ladders, eye protection, work clothes, etc.
- Ventilation. When painting, especially in smaller rooms, you must ensure that there is proper ventilation. Pregnant women should NOT paint, especially later in the pregnancy. Paint fumes can be hazardous to your health, plan accordingly.
- Lighting. Proper lighting will help ensure that your project comes out looking the way you want it to. This is especially important if you are painting with lighter colors.
