House painters have been specially trained to paint both the exterior and interior surfaces of a home with the right paint for the job.
If you need your home painted, house painters will know what paint is best to use on your exterior walls and what is best to use on your interior walls. House painters can advise you that alkyd-based paint is the best house paint to use for exterior surfaces, because it is more durable and resistant to "wear and tear" and outdoor elements.
Professional house painters can also advise you that alkyd-based house paint is best used inside in areas that receive lots of traffic and encounter lots of water, such as kitchens. Latex-based house paints are best suited to indoor surfaces where wall surfaces receive less traffic. When you employ house painters to paint your home they will perform the following tasks:
- Cover areas such as floors from paint splatters and spillages by laying down and securing drop sheets
- Clean and prepare surfaces that are about to be painted such as sand, fill holes, strip wallpaper and old paint and wash surfaces of grime
- Select paint and using brushes, rollers or spray guns apply paint to the required surfaces
- Clean painting tools and work areas and leave newly painted surfaces to dry
When you hire house painters, make sure they prepare a thorough quote for you. Tell them what colour-scheme you require, what areas need to be painted in what timeframe you expect it to be done in. Communicating with your house painters will ensure you control any potential problems that may arise during the process.
