How to Paint Your Commercial Building’s Exterior without Any Mess?by National Painters Online Get professional painting services from the expert
If you’ve ever painted your home exterior before, then you know the kind of hassle that could be staring at you at your next DIY commercial painting project. There will always be a level of mess involved in any painting project, whether it’s on a canvas or a wall… but how do you keep that mess from becoming a permanent stain?
The first thing you’ll want to do as you’re preparing to paint the exterior of your business (quite ironically) is to figure out what’s not getting painted – or at least not in the color you’re currently using. No matter how careful you are with your commercial exterior painting and about not overloading your paint roller or brush, you’ll still be likely to drip somewhere. And that’s why it’s essential to have your bases covered… literally!
Any windows or molding that you don’t want to be painted is going to need to be covered as well. For the window, you can tape some plastic sheeting over it. You might as well tape some up, though, because you’ll also be taping the edges of your painting area, including the edges or surface of any molding you’ve installed. Don’t use duct tape because it’s hard to take off and leaves behind a residue. Regular clear tape should also be avoided as it will be hard to see, and you’ll end up leaving pieces behind. Instead, use painter’s tape – it comes off of your walls and windows pretty easily and usually without leaving any residue, and it’s also easy to find under a layer of paint due to its rough surface.
In the end, it’s always a wiser decision to engage professional commercial exterior painting contractors for the job. Sure, you’ll have to shell out a little, but the outcome will be a lot more refined and clean.
