5 Secrets of Professional House Painters

Thinking of sprucing up your home with a fresh coat of paint?

Keep these tips in mind:

  1. Don’t forget to caulk. Caulking will help trim and wall finishes stand out.
  2. Choose the right brushes. Invest in a good paintbrush. The smaller the brush, the more control you have.
  3. Use an extension pole. If you have a large surface to paint, an extension pole will come in handy.
  4. Put your roller in the fridge. Taking an overnight break? Wrap your brush and roller in a plastic shopping bag, secure with a rubber band, and place in the fridge.
  5. Use a box cutter to remove painter’s tape. Score the place where the tape meets the wall for a clean edge.

These steps will help you achieve a professional-looking paint job all on your own!
