Remember watching old television shows and “dad” is on the ladder with a wide, old natural hard wood handled paintbrush, not a bit of paint on him? That’s not the true story of exterior house painting when you do-it-yourself. Surprised? Us either! Now that you’ve finished preparing your exterior, it’s time to get painting.
Painting the exterior of your Toronto home is a lot of work, can be VERY messy if you aren’t careful, and potentially dangerous as well if dealing with ladders. It is important to consider protecting your landscaping and cars when doing DIY Painting. You don’t want to get paint all over your bushes (or your brand new car!). Most hardware stores and paint stores carry plastic paint sheets that you can use to protect newly any surface from getting covered in paint.
While professional painters sometimes use paint sprayers for external house painting (because it is faster and may provide a more even appearance than by hand), it can be very messy in the hands of a novice sprayer. You may find without proper training, paint sprayers can cause more damage than good, so leave them to the professionals if possible.
With more than 25 years’ experience as painting as professional painters, let our experience do the heavy lifting.
