How can I get the best results out of my residential or commercial paint job? It’s a question that, as Adelaide painters, we are asked frequently.
Painting can be a big task. Be it one room or your entire space, you desire a result that satisfies your high standards.
However, when taking on a project by yourself, there are a number of things that can go awry – if you’re not prepared for the job.
At Pridal Services, we are Adelaide painting experts. We have decades of experience and know how to give you an end product that you’re 100% happy with. To help you to get the most out of your paint project, here are some common issues that occur during a project, and how to work your way around them.
Picking the colour of your paint is a fundamental part of your paint job. It has a significant impact on the way your room looks and feels.
Picking a colour that you’re not happy with can be troublesome later on, even more so if you come to this realisation after the paint has been put on the wall.
There are a couple of reasons why people might misstep while choosing their colour schemes. Firstly, it can be quite difficult to get a really good idea of what the paint will look like in your space based off of the little swatch. Additionally, some paints and colours look different on the swatch/in the tin then they do when they’re actually on the wall.
Work your way around these potential problem areas by painting test patches on your wall. This will give you a much better idea of which colours/textures you like – and which you don’t
Without expert guidance, getting exactly the right amount of paint for your project can be difficult. Too much and there is wastage, too little and you won’t have enough to finish the job.
Forgetting all the detail work that has to be done, inexperience, and the quality of your paint often forces DIY painters to make multiple trips to the store.
You can help to eliminate this issue by consulting with a professional before you begin the painting process.
When proper care and forethought isn’t taken on a paint project, damage can occur. It might be paint dripping on your new carpet or furniture – or perhaps the dog running through and leaving a hairy trail along your wet paint.
Almost everyone who has taken on a DIY project has encountered this issue in some shape or form. It all comes down to preparation and observation – what areas will you need to cover, how will you keep the pets at bay etc.
By taking the time to really plan out your project, you’ll be able to save yourself a lot of hassle down the road.
There’s nothing worse than finishing your project only to be unhappy with the finished result.
Making sure that you are well prepared for your job goes a long way to ensuring the quality of the finish. Consider which tools you’ll need, and, where possible, always try to opt for higher quality paint.
Without expertise in painting, there is only so much that you can do to ensure that the finished result lives up to your expectations. If you want to be 100% sure that your project will be timely and flawless, it might be worthwhile to consider hiring a professional.
