House Spraying Techniques
House Painting Techniques: Spraying external walls, internal walls and ceilings is an alternative to using a brush or roller and can be very useful for projects on tight schedules or for painting hard-to-reach places. Before we start spray painting, we ensure that we are covered with protective equipment – a shirt and pants, shoes and when required a respirator so that we don’t inhale the fine droplets of paint.
We pour your paint through a strainer into a bucket which reduces the risk of any hardened paint or foreign materials from clogging the spray gun. The spray gun will draw the paint out of the bucket and send it through the hose so it comes out the nozzle. When it’s warm especially when painting perth houses we will need to dilute the paint a little to make it spray on smoother and flow better.
We start spraying usually at a corner and work from the top down. We use short, smooth and steady strokes of paint and overlap each “spray” of paint by one third. This is a professional technique used by experts in the painting industry. We keep the gun exactly perpendicular to the wall as much as possible about 12 inches away. If we hold it too close and we cause runs, and too far will and we will cause a sandpaper look finish. To get a superior finish at spray painting we are aware that sometimes it is best to do several lighter coats than one heavy one as applying the paint too heavily can cause runs and drips.
House Painting Techniques
House Painting Techniques: If you want to paint large areas of external wall, internal wall or ceilings, use a spray gun or roller as suggested above. Painting with a brush is likely to take you three to five times longer and the finish will not be as smooth due to the brush strokes. If you are painting window frames, skirtings, doors, moulding or you are cutting in around lights, switches or window sills a brush is the correct tool.
Brush painting can be tedious and the more careful you are the better results you will get. It’s always best to work in small sections and paint up to a break point before stopping. Start at the top and work down, painting with light even strokes and work back into a wet edge to cover any drips or stroke marks.
When painting Perth houses it’s common for paint to dry very quickly. Do not to paint over an area that is partially dried as the brush will pull at the dried surface skin and you will be left with stretch marks or lumps. Paint runs are very common with brush painting and if you see a run, paint over it as soon as possible with light even strokes to remove the excess paint.
