How to paint your home – inside and out Home maintenance includes painting the house. Inside and out. Here is a simple guide to help you paint your interior and exterior home by yourself. You will need to plan, prepare, paint and then clean up. Let’s get started.   Are you remodeling a room? There are two ways to add paint. The cheapest way is to add a fresh coat. All you need to know is the paint number. If you’re adding a new color, you will need to choose the right paint, match it to the surface, select the finish, understand which brush and roller to use, find a ladder and lastly understand how much paint to use. 2

How to paint your home – inside and out Finding the color is the easiest part. There are thousands of swatches to choose from. In Bend, OR, you can find a paint store on almost every corner it seems. Home Depot and Lowes are the cheapest. Matching to the surface and selecting the swatch finish is easy. If there is already paint on there, you probably don’t need a primer. The brush and rollers need to be expensive, unfortunately. The cheaper you spend for brushes, the more the hairs will get on your wall . Paint is messy and seeps through cloth. You will need plastic on the ground and on places where paint could splash. It will splash you will spill. Get as prepared as you can for all leaks and mistakes. If you put a primer on, you will need to apply two coats of it. Then, after primer, 3 coats of fresh and new paint. If you are painting over paint, all you need is two coats. One can of paint covers 400 square feet. Lowes has a great paint calculator here. http://www.lowes.com/cd_Paint+Calculator_1352225126183_ 3

How to paint your home – inside and out Painting the exterior of a home is a bit more challenging. If old paint, you will need paint removal (CitrusStrip is the best). You will need to pressure wash the walls to remove dirt and dust, repair the damaged surface areas (tap nails in and drill in holes), remove loosened paint, caulk (make sure it’s paintable) around the trimming, add primer and will need outside home paint. There are two types. Water based latex and oil based alkyd. You’re painting “outside” so obviously water based paint is a bad idea. Choose the alkyd. The ideal time to paint is summer time and not winter. Some paints will not coat properly in temperatures any lower than 50 degrees . Begin painting on the shady side of the house from the top to the bottom. Brushes and rollers can be cheap in this factor because you will not tell there are hairs in the paint outside as you would inside. Painting outside in the sun will cause the fresh paint to dry too fast so again, paint in the shade or in mornings/evenings – never mid-day. Brush from one wet surface to another wet surface and if you cannot do that, make sure you overlap on the dry paint by at least a foot. 4
