In today’s post, we are going to continue where we left off last time and cover more of the most common mistakes that people make when trying to paint their home or office by themselves.

Save Time, Energy, and Money With a Professional Painter

Painting a home or business is something that everyone is going to have to deal with at some point in their life. Paint, unfortunately, does not last forever. This means that occasionally homeowners are going to have to repaint their homes. While it might be tempting to do this job yourself, we have listed a few reasons below that should make you question whether or not you are as capable of completing this job as you may think.



  • Buying The Wrong Brushes: Believe it or not, not all paint brushes are made equal. Certain brushes are better for certain situations, surfaces, and paint types than others. Unless you have a lot of experience painting homes, you may not be aware of this fact, leading you to buy a brush that is better suited for the exterior of your home than it is for the walls of your bedroom. When you hire one of our painting contractors, you are hiring a crew that knows exactly which tools need to be used in order to make sure that your paint job is done correctly.
  • Using Latex Paint Over Oil-Based Paint: Many a homeowner over the years has run into this issue. If you apply latex paint over an oil-based formula, the paint is guaranteed to start to peel and crack. These two paint types don’t mix well with each other and, unless you take the time to sand down the oil-painted surface, you are going to end up having to redo the paint job once the effects of the reaction start to show. Our painting contractors already understand that latex and oil-based paints don’t play nice with one another. They will take the necessary steps to make sure that the paint they put on your walls, stay on your walls.
