Painting & Staining

How to Paint and Stain Successfully

If you are currently undergoing a home remodeling project, it is very likely that you are going to have the need for paint and stain as well. For those of you who have experienced painting and staining different textures and services, you already know how tedious this task can be, and how much research goes into the successful painting and staining of any kind of service. Below, we are going to share with you a few tips and tricks that will help you successfully paint or stain the surface you may be working on.

First of all, when you begin painting, you need to first decide how many coats of primer the wall or surface is going to need before hand. Primer is a great way to ready the surface for paint, and also promotes longevity for the paint itself. We never recommend painting a service without at least putting two coats of primer on before hand. If you need help finding a good quality primer that will help you professionally prepare the surface you are needing to paint, we recommend reaching out to a local paint shop in your area where you can find many experts who are well educated within the means of your project. Remember, just like anything else, all primers are not the same. Furthermore, based on the type of primer that you decide to use for your remodeling project will also determine the type of paint you are going to need that will allow you to finish your painting project with a smooth surface.

As you begin painting your walls, you need to be sure that you are stroking the wall with a paint brush or roller in the same direction every time. This will ensure that you minimize the amount of bubbles you cause within the paint itself. Furthermore, by painting in the same direction every single time, you will ensure that the paint itself will dry evenly across all of your walls. By painting in different directions, you may find that each of your walls appear to be a different color once the paint has dried. Additionally, if you are looking for a very solid paint color for your wall, and are also looking for a paint that easily bonds to the wall, you're going to want to choose a canvas style paint. Canvas paint is a great paint that dries quickly but also dries evenly regardless of the direction you paint the wall. Furthermore, as you begin painting your wall, if you find that you are needing to paint high services, you should purchase a painting extension. Painting extensions allow you to easily paint areas that are higher than your typical reach and will help you increase the chances of painting smoothly and evenly.
