5 Things to Remember When You Paint the Outdoor Walls Yourself

by James Spencer Blogger

Painting house walls, whether indoors or outdoors is always an exciting task to conduct. It is the professional painters who know what it takes to paint a wall properly. Brief them the right design, colour and pattern to watch your walls come back to life. 

While some say that DIY painting is always the best over professional painting services, in reality, unless you are trained with the techniques you may end up with creating blotches, overpainting in some areas, etc. despite that there are several who opt for this technique. There is no harm to this as long as you aren’t wasting money on something worthless. 

When you make plans to paint the exteriors of the wall, consider these tips for the best results. 

 

 

Clean the Existing Paint

The paint on your walls is known to stay there despite some portions chipping off. There may be the presence of blisters, peeling as well as walls that are laden with moisture. Unless you take care of all of this, you aren’t doing things the right way. There is the need to remove and scrape all of the existing paint and only then apply a new coat. 

Choose the Right Colour

Just because you are attracted to a particular colour, it doesn’t mean that you use it for the outdoor walls of the house. There is the need to maintain aesthetics while increasing the value of the house. If you end up painting it with bright colours that take away eyes from your house, you aren’t doing it right. Get help from professional colour experts and they may help you with a good suggestion. 

Apply Primer 

While people think that DIY saves a lot of money, they often forget the use of primer on the walls first and then applying the paint. The primer is known to hold the paint coat well and prevent it from washing off in the days to come. It also prevents blistering and cracking in no time. A primer is also something that brightens the colour that you choose for the walls rather than making it dull looking for those who look at it. 

Look Out for the Weatherman

Since it is the outdoors that you are painting, ensure that there is no possibility of rain. This will not just wash away the paint and waste money but also lead to dampening of the walls in certain places. The wall will not be able to absorb the paint well. Since the weather is wet, the paint wouldn’t dry fast too while leading to poor quality walls in no time. Therefore, always paint the exterior walls when it is sunny for maximum benefits. 

 

 

Ask Professionals for Help if You Want 

People think that professionals charge a lot of money to paint the house, and that is what DIY is the best option. Well, what they fail to understand is that they are skilled in painting and its techniques. The best painters in Perth know what it takes to come up with perfect looking walls and that too by using the right techniques.
