House Painting How To Manual

Why paint? The answer is simple. Painting preserves and beautifies. Wood and other materials are subject to a daily assault from the elements on the outside of your house and from constant contact with human and pet activity on the interior. The best way to prevent the degradation of the structure of your house is to create a barrier. This barrier to the weather we call house paint.

The House Painting How To Manual will take you step-by-step through the process of painting your home's interior and exterior. We begin by giving you a bit of background information about what you will need to apply the paint and also how to reach the surfaces that must be painted. Also, you should know a bit about the different types of paint and when to use them. Those interested in eco-friendly paints should check out zero-VOC and low-VOC types.

Painting the interior can liven up living spaces for very little expenditure. Painting the exterior sometimes seems to be a marathon job, but done properly it will protect and beautify a home for years. We get into the nitty-gritty details of house painting, masking, priming, drop cloths, scraping and even delve into how to use a paint sprayer.

Finally, cleanup and safety both have a place in a good paint-job. These two functions become especially important when the painter is worn out and tired from a long day slinging a brush.
