Home improvement projects are often easier said than done. Unless you already consider yourself a pretty handy person, there’s really no reason not to hire a professional exterior painting service when your home needs a new coat. Painting a house sounds like a pretty simple and straightforward task. For homes with simple architecture, say, a one-story box with straight edges and well-defined features, you can probably do without the help of a contractor. But when your home is a three-story Victorian with gingerbread patterns, bay windows and plenty of dormers, things can get a little bit complicated.
Our exterior home improvement professionals at Masters Roofing lay out a few important points to keep in mind before you consider a DIY approach to painting your house.
Tools and Equipment Needed
Applying a fresh coat of color to your siding takes more than a few cans of paint and a couple of brushes. The tools you need will vary from one project to another. For example, taller homes will need lifts and ladders, as well as the necessary safety equipment to prevent accidents and injuries. Some materials even require a primer coat before the paint can be applied. Understanding what your home needs might not be as easy as you think. In this case, it’s a much safer bet to trust professionals to complete the project for you.
Choosing a color isn’t just a matter of what looks good or not. It’s important to consider the style of your entire home and the architectural elements it has before you begin your project. Certain types of paint work well with certain types of materials and knowing which is also an important part of finishing the job.
