PAINTINGSERVICESInterior and exterior painting services yield the cheapest and quickest home renovations, adding instant décor without breaking the bank.

Sanding is an unavoidably messy task. To skip this step, try using a heavy duty primer sealer or deglossing liquid before applying your finish paint. Oil-based painting products will stick to anything and provide a great starting surface for painting.

Interior and exterior painting is all about preparation. When purchasing your paint also pick up spackling, Painter’s tape, paintbrushes, rollers, cleaning cloths, sandpaper, and a plastic tarp. Here are some helpful tips to get you through this often meticulous process with a little more sanity.

For refinishing projects, remove the old finish by sanding (with the grain) or using chemical strippers. Staining for wood comes in transparent, semitransparent and solid-hide formulation. Using transparent formulations also provides weather protection. Stains are oil-based, water-based and gel. Apply stains with a rag or brush, allow the length of time left on the wood to determine the darkness of the desired staining job. Wipe off with a rag and repeat process until the color is as dark as desired. Apply a heavy coat of sealer, allow it to soak into the wood and then wipe off excess.
