Preventative Home Care and Your Residential Paint Job

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

A new coat of paint can do wonders for your home. It can completely update the look of your space even if all of your furniture and artwork stay the same! It’s one of the simplest ways to add new life and energy to a room, and the science of color psychology even suggests certain shades of paint can affect your mood. How great is that? So much goodness from a simple paint job. If you have decided it’s time for Lakeside Painting’s residential painting services, you may be wondering how long you can expect your fantastic new paint job to last. Today we are providing you with tips and tricks to ensure that your residential paint job will last as long as it can.

We Use the Best Paint

We take pride in all of the work we do, and one of the simplest ways we do this is by choosing only the best interior paints and equipment to complete your project. We also value communication; talk with us about how you want your room to feel so we can recommend colors for you. It is also good to know how the space will be used. Mud rooms, kitchens, or other spaces that may be prone to getting dirty quickly may benefit from paint coatings that will protect your walls and make them easier to clean. In fact, this brings us to our first tip:

Consider Paint Coatings

Paint coatings provide an extra layer of protection to your freshly painted walls. We all know clean walls look and feel best, but sometimes harsh cleaning products and good old fashioned scrubbing can wear down the paint over time. Paint coatings help messes wipe off much more easily, so you can have that “just painted” look for much longer. If you are not familiar with paint coatings or paints that provide extra protection, talk to our painters! All of our projects begin with an in-home safety and home condition inspection. We’ll know exactly what you’re looking for before we even lift a paint brush.

Be Prepared for Some Light Repairs Before Residential Painting

One way to help extend the life of your newly painted walls is to take care of issues before residential painting begins. This may involve patching holes, scraping off old paint, or repairing broken trim. While some of these repairs may seem obvious -- like broken trim -- others may leave you wondering. Why should you scrape off all of your old paint? Especially if your home is older and there are several layers to deal with? All of that old paint can make it harder for your new coat of paint to properly adhere. If the paint can’t seal correctly, it is much more prone to scraping and chipping. By removing old paint and thoroughly sanding the area, you can help ensure that your new paint job will be as durable as it is beautiful.
