Most of us will do an okay job of painting a room. But, if you hire a skilled and experienced painter, they will do a better job and that’s a fact. As a homeowner, you probably don’t have a lot of practice painting walls but seasoned professionals like Sipenda Painters know all the tips and tricks to give you the best results.
These are the 3 steps painters would take to complete your painting project in a timely and efficient fashion.
Step 1: Prepare
Preparing the walls involve a thorough inspection of cracks, peeling paint and mould growth. For exterior walls, it might also include washing the surface with a pressure washer to get rid of dirt and grime.
Once the entire area is inspected the necessary repairs are done to ensure a smooth finish and maximum adhesion of the paint. If you skip this step, you’ll decrease the lifespan of your paint job.
Step 2: Prime
Applying a quality primer to your wall after cleaning and repairs will ensure that the paint sticks to the surface. You’ll require fewer layers if painting over a bold colour as well. This step is vital if you want your paint to last a long time.
Step 3: Paint
The final step is applying the paint. Often, people who DIY their paint project opt for the cheapest paint. Professional painters only use reputable paint brands to ensure longevity. As for the equipment used, these will also be high-quality to limit the likelihood of dripping or running paint as well as roller marks and streaks.
While it might seem feasible to manage your own paint project, hiring professional painters is more affordable than you might think.
