    The Importance of Proper Prep Work When Painting

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Before beginning any major painting project, your painting contractor should take several precautionary and routine steps to ensure the project’s success. Failing to take these measures could result in serious damage to your home as well as a less-than-mediocre paint job. Keep reading to learn more about the importance of proper prep work when painting:

    • Mismatched Paint Shades: It is vital that homeowners work with their painting contractor to make sure that the correct color is chosen. Fixing this mistake later can be an expensive and time-consuming process. Take advantage of free paint samples during the color decision process to make sure you feel confident in your ultimate choice. 

    • Ruined Appliances: Outdoor appliances like radiators and air conditioners are easy targets for damage if not properly covered prior to painting. The precautionary measures required to protect them are simple and should be standard for a high-quality painting company.  Other important items to cover are glass-protected meters and breaker boxes.

    • Stained Walkways: There’s nothing attractive about a paint-splattered sidewalk or driveway. This is a highly unprofessional mistake that could be difficult to repair. Since many homeowners enjoy bordering these areas with greenery, not properly covering the concrete and surrounding area could also cause permanent damage to plants.

    • Early Paint Failure: Inexperienced or careless painters may not factor in the significant role that nature plays in timing the painting process correctly. Serious wind, rain, dew, heat, and cold can keep certain types of paint from adhering correctly as well as weaken its durability.

    Painting the interior or exterior of your home can transform it aesthetically and give it a uniquely personal style.

    Homeowners can increase the value of their home and its décor by having it painted. Before beginning a painting project, however, it’s important that you choose the best type of paint and most professional painting service.

    Paints come in four different finishes and two types. The finishes are flat, satin, semi-gloss, and glossy and serve their own specific purposes. Types include oil and latex, which vary in durability, UV resistance, and strength. Speak with your painter about the different types as well as his or her suggestions for using color to make rooms appear larger.

    How to Hire a Painter

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If you want to guarantee that your painting job is impeccable, you’re going to have to choose a skilled painter. When looking for a painting company, don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions and inquire about references and samples. If the company representative that you speak with is not inclined to provide you with any of these, walk away and look elsewhere.

    As the expert in this video demonstrates, a lot can be said about the sample your potential painter provides you with. If you notice the wood through the coats of paint, or that he or she failed to caulk the edge, leaving it messy and spotted, then your best bet is to look for someone with more experience. Talk to your painter about the look that you’d like to achieve; this will help you decide on the type and color of paint that works best for your home.

    When Does Your Deck Need Re-Staining?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Maintaining your deck is important to guaranteeing its aesthetic beauty as well as its strength and resistance to the elements. If your deck is looking a little worn these days, you may need to call in your residential painting company to service it. Here is a guide to knowing when your deck needs re-staining:

    • Heavy Weather Has Worn the Stain: As a Colorado resident, you understand how heavy snow and rain can take its toll on a home. The stain on a deck is susceptible to becoming worn from exposure to extreme weather. If a stain has worn, it will leave the wood vulnerable to warping and water damage during the next rainfall or snow.

    • Furniture Has Created Scratches: Homeowners often place felt movers or pads under table legs and sofas to prevent damage to the floor inside the home. The same care should be taken for outdoor furniture. If furniture has scratched the deck, it could have easily worn down the stain. 

    • Your Stain is Semi-Solid or Transparent: Deck stains that are semi-transparent, semi-solid, or transparent offer the least amount of protection and need to be re-stained more often. Solid deck stains are harder to re-stain but can last up to five years. It’s best to speak with your painting company about the best option for your deck.

    • Debris Has Absorbed Moisture: If you haven’t been able to routinely remove debris, like leaves, dirt, and pollen, you could be creating small moisture patches that can damage the satin and expose the wood. These items absorb rainwater, and if they are not swept away, they will not expel that water on their own. Inspect for water damage, and then consult with your staining specialist.

    Re-staining your deck is the most effective measure you can take to protect it for years to come. At Baseline Painting, our staining and painting specialists have been helping Highlands Ranch homeowners get the interior and exterior looks they’ve always dreamed of.
