You should be proud of your home and not self-conscious about how it looks. It can be frustrating to see the outside of your home or in your interior rooms with poor paint work. While you spend a lot of your time tending to the yard and picking up after your children, it is not enough to cover cracked or fading paint.

Inadequacy of preparation

The outcome of a painting job is often a result of how well the house painter in Auckland prepared. Painting success is often determined by how well you prepare before, during, and after a job. If primer isn’t applied before painting, the paint may not show through or leave a smooth finish. Let’s compare how to prepare an interior surface and an exterior surface.

Interior Rooms

All furniture and light fixtures must be removed before interior painting can begin. To prevent paint splatters and staining, cover outlets, windows, and floors. To promote paint adhesion, the walls must be cleaned thoroughly of dust, dirt and other debris.

The Exterior of a Building

M. Brett Painting pressure washes exteriors of homes and businesses before applying new paint. All surfaces are cleaned, including siding, fencing, and decks. Before the project can begin, it is important to hand scrape and sand the surfaces.

Painting in Bad Weather

Although New England’s weather is unpredictable, it is important that you plan for the best conditions when exterior painting. Paint will not adhere to surfaces or dry properly between coats if it is too cold or humid. For exterior painting, warm temperatures, mild sunlight and low winds are ideal; otherwise, cracks could be visible early.

Manufacture shortage

Brett Painting uses a wide range of materials to complete a job. We also offer many decorative options such as faux finishes or full wall murals.
