Helpful Painting Tips

• Surface preparation is the most important part of making sure your paint goes down smooth. Be sure to sand your painting surface and wipe away any remaining dust or particles. Then, put down a good primer. Remember to always sand and clean the surface between coats too.

• Never paint surfaces that are wet or damp. Always make sure that your surface is completely dry. Also, never paint outside when the temperature is expected to be over 90⁰F or below 40⁰F.

• When painting metal surfaces, always use a good acrylic latex primer. If you are painting metal surfaces that will be exposed to weather or moisture, be sure to use a rust-proof paint.

• Though you may not realize it, in many places in your home your trim is exposed to wear on a daily basis. That’s why you should always use 100% acrylic paint on trim. Not only is it easier to clean, but the paint is extra durable.
