Gold Painting Inc. has painted the interior and exterior of countless homes across Massachusetts—all the while focused on providing a flawless finish!
Obtaining a high-quality finish is something that every painter should strive for, whether you’re hiring a pro like Gold Painting Inc. or doing it yourself. Take our true or false pop quiz below to test your paint-prepping knowledge!
Wait to pull off the painter’s tape until after the paint is dry. False!
It’s better to peel the tape off following the paint application, so you don’t run the risk of having some of the paint coming up with the tape’s adhesive once it dries.
It’s acceptable to paint the exterior of your home every 15 years. False!
Generally, exterior paint should be re-applied to your home about every 10 years—consider the wear and tear our homes endure given hot, humid New England summers and harshly cold winters and it’s easy to see why!
You should dip your paint brush half-way down into the can. False!
Doing this is a paint waster; as a best practice, only dab the brush about a third of the way into the paint can.
You can never have too much paint in one coat. False!
Applying a thick, heavy coat of paint in an effort to save some time won’t paint a pretty picture at all. It will likely result in goopy drips. Instead, roll a thin coat of paint onto the wall in a “W” shape, filling in the spaces as you move across the surface.
You don’t always have to use a primer. False!
The primer acts as a stupendous base on which the paint sits; therefore, it’s important for helping to ensure that the paint goes on smoothly and evenly, every time!
Buy exactly the amount of paint you’ll need to put two coats of paint on the wall. False!
A good rule to follow is buy up to half-gallon of extra paint to account for any necessary touchups.
