Painters Tape – New homeowners and novice painters may think that just any kind of tape will work, this is simply not the case. Painter’s tape is specifically designed to not leave behind a sticky residue and to be easy enough to see to adequately mask off the sections you need without painting over the tape’s boundary. Many homes have expensive crown molding and if not masked off properly can compromise the finish, paint, and/or the overall longevity of your molding and other sensitive hard-to-reach areas.
Not All Paint Brushes Are Created Equal – Many people think a paintbrush is just a paintbrush, but you wouldn’t tell a fine artist to use a paint roller on their canvas, would you? I think not. For any contracting job, big or small, using the correct tool for the job is absolutely imperative. Don’t cost yourself money over time by having to redo your paint jobs because of the lackluster finish because of an inferior brush choice.
Of course, the most important thing to not forget to do while painting your home is to have a thorough plan. If you can plan out your process and purchase all of your materials beforehand, you’ll have a much easier time completing this task. Thank you for reading this blog.
