Few improvements can increase the value and appearance of your home as inexpensively as painting. However, there is far more to a quality paint job than simply applying paint to a surface. As with most projects, proper planning and preparation are the keys to successful interior painting. Properly preparing the surfaces to be painted is the first step in a quality paint job. All hardware, such as switch and outlet covers, etc. should be removed and carefully stored, or properly masked. Curtains, blinds, and other objects should also be removed or protected. All sheetrock damage should then be repaired. This includes patching all nail holes and applying a sealer/ primer to all stains. Larger repairs to the sheetrock may require a multi-step process which includes installing new drywall, taping and skim coating, and texturing. Most glossy surfaces should be primed. Any separations between wood should be caulked with a siliconized acrylic latex caulk. The final step in the preparation process involves masking and covering any remaining objects which will not be painted. The method and extent of the masking is largely determined by how the paint will be applied. When the preparation is complete, a thorough inspection should be conducted. Now is the time to discover any additional sheetrock repairs, to find that door jamb that wasn't sanded, etc.

"Proper preparation is the key" 
As with interior painting, proper surface preparation is crucial for achieving a long lasting paint job. A thorough cleaning to remove dirt and mildew is the first step in preparing exterior surfaces. All loose paint and defective caulking should then be removed. Any rotted boards should be replaced by a professional carpenter, and all new and bare wood primed. Gaps between adjoining wood, or wood and masonry, should be caulked with an elastomeric sealant. Hardware and light fixtures which are not to be painted should be removed or properly protected, and all plants should be moved or covered. Rusty surfaces, such as steel lintels and wrought iron, may require special preparation. All loose rust should be removed, and the surface then primed with a rust inhibiting primer. As with interior paints, many manufacturers have developed new latex products which offer superior performance over oil base paints. A 100% acrylic latex paint should be used for exterior surfaces. Less expensive paints generally contain a vinyl, or vinyl-acrylic, resin, which is not as durable as a 100% acrylic resin and does not retain color as well. Because oil paints dry slowly, they should not be used for exterior painting in warm, humid whether. The slow drying time gives mold spores more opportunity to attach to the drying paint film. This, combined with the nature of the resins in alkyd paints, provides a near perfect environment for mildew. Latex paints are much more mildew resistant. While most high-quality paints now contain mildewcides, such additives will only inhibit mildew growth, not prevent its occurrence. No paint job will last forever. However, the life of paint can be extended with the proper care and maintenance. Interior paint is generally not subjected to conditions as harsh as exterior paint. Maintenance usually consists of little more than occasionally cleaning to remove dirt, grease, or fingerprints. Scuff marks, scratches, and chips require touch up. Exterior paint requires considerably more maintenance. Regularly removing dirt and mildew will not only keep the paint looking fresh, but will also prevent mildew growth from destroying the paint film. In addition, an inspection for rotted wood and cracked caulk should be conducted at least once a year. Promptly replacing rotted boards and repairing cracked caulk will prevent more extensive and expensive damage.

Sheetrock Repair - Drywall is susceptible to damage from a number of sources, the most common being water and foundation movement. The walls and ceilings of most homes are covered with a gypsum board commonly called drywall, or sheetrock. Secured to framing materials with nails or screws, drywall can be finished with a variety of textures.Drywall is susceptible to damage from a number of sources, the most common being water and foundation movement. Broken pipes, a roof leak, or improperly sealed windows can permit water to penetrate the drywall, leading to stains and/ or crumbling material. An unstable foundation can create stress on drywall, leading to the formation of cracks.The method for repairing drywall damage is determined by the nature and extent of the damage. Stains can simply be treated with an primer/sealer and repainted.Cracks and other small repairs can generally be repaired by applying joint tape and joint compound over the affected area. Larger repairs are made by replacing a section of the drywall. The seams between pieces of drywall are hidden by a process called taping and floating. This process involves embedding a piece of paper or fiberglass mesh joint tape in a thin layer of joint compound.Several thin layers of joint compound are applied over the joint tape, and the surface is sanded smooth when the joint compound has dried. Extensive repairs, or uneven surfaces may require multiple, heavily applied layers of joint compound.In such instances, the joint compound dries slowly. Such repairs may take several days to complete, though the actual labor may involve only a few hours.Upon completion of the repair, the repaired area should be textured to match the surrounding surface.

Pressure Washing - High pressure water is an effective cleaning agent for many surfaces, particularly masonry such as bricks, driveways, sidewalks, and patios. While a pressure washer can be used to clean painted surfaces, the most effective method utilizes chemical cleaning agents and a low pressure process. While a deck can add to the attractiveness and utility of your home, it is far from a maintenance free addition. The proper maintenance is necessary to protect the life and appearance of your deck.

Special Notes

Important Factors 
While color is often the consumer's primary concern, the other ingredients in the paint can. particularly the type of resin and the type of solvent-are important considerations. The surface being painted will determine which type of paint is preferable. Other considerations, such as sensitivity to petroleum solvent fumes, will also impact which types of paint should be used. Paint colors are often selected from a fan deck or other color chart. While these charts are useful, it should be remembered that the size of the sample may not provide an accurate representation of how the color will look on a wall or the side of a house. Many other factors, such as furniture, lighting, landscaping, background colors, etc. will contribute to the final appearance of the paint color. The sheen of the paint film can also have an impact on its appearance, as well as its durability. In general, a higher sheen may look a little lighter than the sample, because of the manner in which the paint film will reflect light. Higher sheen paints also tend to be more durable. Their finish is harder, making them less prone to scratches and abrasions, as well as more scrubbable. These general rules apply to both interior and exterior paints. However, because interior and exterior surfaces are exposed to different conditions, other rules apply to coatings formulated for those specific conditions
