Columbia Paint Painting Mistakes

Please be aware of these mistakes.

You Forget To Use Painters Tape

It would be best if you used painter’s tape in addition to moving furniture and laying down drop cloths. It is one of the most effective tools for safeguarding your baseboards and windows. It is also critical to understand that masking tape differs from painter’s tape. In no circumstance should you use masking tape as a replacement.

You Paint Over Rotted And Damaged Wood

Many homeowners believe rotten wood can be salvaged if painted over. This is undoubtedly not the case. Before you begin painting, you must replace any old wood. You’ll surely be displeased with your work by painting over old and damaged wood.

You Don’t Cover Or Protect Fixtures

Although dried paint can usually be removed from certain fixtures like door knobs and lighting fixtures, you are much better off protecting them before beginning your painting project. You can either remove them entirely or conceal them to prevent any messes.

You Soak Your Paint Brushes In Paint Before Applying Them

If you use a paintbrush on baseboards, trim, or other surfaces, you shouldn’t always think less is more when you dip your brush into the paint. To achieve the best results, you should only dip the tip of your brush into the paint before applying it to your surface.
