Looking to give your home’s exterior a makeover without making a huge investment like siding installation services? Why not paint your home? A fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into your property, boosting your curb appeal and increasing your home’s value.
Today, Universal Roofing & Exteriors shares some tips on how to paint your house.
Choose the Right Brush
You might get tempted to grab the cheapest brush and rollers from your local hardware store, but when you find yourself constantly picking out bristles from your freshly painted siding, you’ll realize why quality tools matter. If you choose to hire a painting and siding contractor, they should already have all the proper tools needed for the job.
Always Use Primer
Some paints are actually a combination of primer and paint, but these are not usually appropriate for heavy-duty applications. They’re fine for lightly coating walls with an already existing non-glossy color, but for a job like painting the exterior of a home, you need to use real primer.
Clean the Surface First
Before applying any paint to your home, you need to clean the surface. Make sure the siding is completely cleaned and free of any dust or any particles before applying the first coat of paint.
