Mistakes to avoid when painting your home

People who prefer not to make use of painting services in Johannesburg are often unprepared for the amount of work that goes into the painting of their home. While it might be cheaper to do it yourself than hire professional labour, there are definitely certain dire pitfalls to avoid. Buying the wrong paint, incorrect brushing techniques and using the incorrect base can all lead to serious and expensive headaches.

Here are a few mistakes to avoid when painting your home:

  • Painting without primer: Primer is used to give paint a good surface to adhere to and for bringing out the true colour of the shade paint that you chose. Any professional painting service knows that going forward without primer can lead to poor results.
  • Impatience: This can be a major issue for anyone painting their home. Many people start the painting with the best of intentions and then soon become overwhelmed with all the work associated with it. Do not rush. After taking the time to fix every imperfection with patching compound, wait and make sure that it is completely dry before you sand and prime (or else it will have been a complete waste of time).
  • Brushing vs. rolling: Once again here the labour of professional painting services will be able to offer you great advice and results. For a large interior area, a good roller will do a much better job in no time. Make sure to choose the correct nap roller for the sheen of paint and always try to avoid pushing the roller into the wall when painting.
