Prepare Your House

If you want to get the best painting done on the exteriors of your home, you should understand the type of wall it’s made of. Knowing the type of wall will also help your painting contractor have an idea of the best type of paint to use for you. Let’s see some of these types of walls.

Stucco walls—stucco is cement plaster that is applied on interior and exterior walls of buildings, it is a cement byproduct that has the stickiness of plaster. Stucco is made from the combination of sand, lime and cement, helping to improve its strength. Stucco is mostly applied over metal lath which is a galvanized wire mesh that must always remain covered for it not to rust. If your wall is coated with stucco, then you have a unique wall surface that is reliable, hard, and the preferred choice to many people because it’s cheap to get. With stucco wall surfaces, we can achieve different finishes and we can use different textures when painting.

Brick walls—this are primarily walls made from bricks, they generally take longer to build but they also last long. If you had a brick house, you have to ask yourself “do I really need to paint this?” Bricks require a whole lot of maintenance. Little bit of moisture and that bad boy starts chipping right off. Also, if you have been using your brick walls since the 1990s or the 2000s, chances are that your brick wall is having a dozen shades of black spots now. If you want to really paint a brick wall, then you shouldn’t just use any paint, what you need right there is a paint that will allow the walls have enough breathing space. It’s best if you use a breathable latex paint like Sherwin-Williams SuperPaint acrylic latex because it will be giving you that long lasting brick wall you always dreamed of having. This same technique also applies to all stucco walls which needs to be dry as bone when being painted with a type of paint that can easily resist mildew and dust, giving you the most cost effective painting.

Drywall—this type of wall was first produced in the United Kingdom, but today, the US and Canada uses more of it. Most drywall here in the United States is manufactured to be 48-inches, 54-inches and 96-inches wide panels that come in many different lengths. The lengths of the walls are then customized to fit the use or the area of use. Talking of its thickness, drywalls are 0.5-inch thick, and it comes with a gypsium board with special core additions that help to increase the natural fire resistance of the place. Due to the quality and the material this gypsium board is made of, sound transmission may be impaired. Drywalls also give you the needed thermal resistance R-value, but the R-value depends more on the thickness of the boards, the most common of which is 0.32-inch. Still, it’s vital to remember that the name “drywall” implies something about the type of wall you have, it will soak paint faster than a sponge, and so it’s also very important to study this wall before selecting the type of paint you will be using.

For now, the best, cost effective way to paint these walls is to use a primer with poly vinyl acetate (PVA) to prevent the wall from getting wet. When you plan getting a primer, it’s advisable to decide the color of paint first, that will help you get a primer that will be the same color as the paint itself. When the primer is the same color as your paint, it won’t result in bad painting or multiple colors showing up, but always ensure that the wall remains dry whenever it should be.

To get a better idea of what types of primer you will need, it is really important that you talk to a painting contractor or a specialist.

Select the Right Type of Paint To Paint Your House

It’s not over yet; you now have to select the type of paint you will be using. The paints you use for the interiors of your home are most likely not the same you would be using for the exteriors. To choose the right type of pain, you have to consider many factors. For users of the home, it’s vital that you consider the side effects, the looks and the feel. For painters, you should consider the nature of the surface you would paint, and if it was previously painted, you should also consider the type of paint that was used. This will give you a better idea of what your home will need, because the same paints don’t work for the different walls. There two categories of paints; water-based liquid latex paints and the solvent-based paint (oil-based paints).

Water-Based Latex Paints This is also known as the do-it-yourself paint. The paints in this category can be cleaned with just water and detergent. It’s the mostly used paint around because of its ability to stick well when dried. These paints are used in most interiors there in the United States because of its ability to absorb heat. When talking of its durability, paints in these category offers excellent adhesion to most substrates and much increased elasticity than oil-based paints. When water-based latex paints are exposed to direct sunlight, they offer a better resistance to chalking and fading when compared to oil-based paints which are known to fade as soon as they are exposed to the sun. You won’t have to wear out your arms before completing the job of painting with the water-based latex paints because they go smoothly and evenly. With little odor and quick recoating, water-based latex paints do the needful when painting wood walls, concrete walls, stucco, brick, aluminum siding and vinyl siding.

Oil Based Paints An oil-based paint demands a more professional touch because it needs care and experience. Water-based paints can be cleaned with a sponge when a mistake is made, but the same cannot be said of oil-based paints. The strength of quality oil-based paints lie in the fact that they offer better adhesive characteristics, which means they get a tighter grip on a surface within the shortest time. If a durable paint is what you really need, this is one you should consider using. One downside of using this paint is that it tends to oxidize and get brittle over time, leading to series of cracks in home exteriors and it gets yellowish when it’s applied to the interior walls.

Selecting the Right Sheen If you are to successfully select the right paint sheen for your interiors and exterior paint jobs, you should carefully consider the anesthetic and practical conditions. If you want to create more visual interest, you should increase the contents of sheen or gloss in your paint, but if you do not apply the right quantity of sheen or gloss, the painting may not last as it should. So, whether you are working on the interiors or exteriors, always use the right quantity of sheen. To get better information on the sheen and gloss level, our sheen guide here at Sherwin Williams is always on hand to offer you the best, most effective advice on the use of sheen. Just as you have known the type of paint you can use, you should not forget that knowledge of paint mixing is also vital if you are planning to get creative. When you mix paints well, you can successfully get the right paint color for your painting job. Soft merging of colors is really cool for exteriors. You would not want your building to stick out when it’s viewed next to others, so always go for lighter colors. For the inside, you are free to perform any act you deem fit (I mean painting acts), you can use gloss because nothing catches the eyes more than a glowing texture. To give your home that earthy look, you may go for thick brown or black colors, and you will see your home having that traditional look. If you want to live in the modern home, you can customize your home with plain, solid colors but when a vintage theme is you desired style, feel free to use loud, glaring colors. The more the colors of your home clash, the more they become, either cool or scary, but whatever you choose, always remember that the color of your home says a lot about who you are.

Time to Paint You have studied the type of wall you have, you have also studied the type of paint you need, you have taken time to see what you need or what you hope to see when the job is done, now is the time to paint. Should you do it yourself? There is nothing really wrong in doing your painting yourself if you have prior experience, or even if you have the passion for painting, but there are some important reasons to consider getting a residential painter or a painting contractor.

Structural Stability A painting contractor has the ability to detect deficiencies in the structures which may not allow the paints stay for long. Faulty roofs, exposed walls and weak spots on your home may result in either short-time or long time damages to the home, so it’s vital that a more experienced eye studies an area before applying the coat on the wall.

Color Patterns It requires the skills of a great painting contractor to successfully select the best, cost effective paints. The design you have in mind may not be the best, so getting a painting contractor to do your indoor and outdoor painting saves you the headache caused by costly mistakes.

Tools What make a skilled craftsman are his tools. Since you are not a painter, there is the possibility that you don’t really have the right tools and may not even know the right tools to use. Working with painters have allowed many to see that not all areas require using paint rollers and the same goes for brushes, scrapers and sprays.

Hire a Painter Having seen how important it is to get skilled painting contractors, many may now be left wondering, “How do I get the best?” Here in the US, there are great painters who like to take the stress out of painting, they just love to work on paint, while working on your projects, they do not try to show you that they are the best, they try to let you know they care about what you think. So rather than telling you what you should use, they always want to know what you want and they help you work on that by giving recommendations. Have you ever imagined what collaborating with the professionals will be like? Have you ever imagined what you can achieve if you face your project together? All you need is to drop them a line, they take a look at the need, hear your say and the rest is all professionally done. Now, for those of you who think all I have been rambling about seems more or less like an ancient language, you can get the help of a professional group of painters. A residential painting contractor is always handy to give you the best guidelines and advices. Remember to use Sherwin Williams’ brand of paints for the optimal results.
