Steps to proper painting

Full evaluation of interior/exterior
"see what is wrong with the paint ie,moisture issues,rotted wood,improper water runoff,interior water seepage,flaking paint,previous contractor painting workand last but not least did you use GOOD Qualty paint"
We live in Ct we get snow,rain,hot humid weather in the summer ,and ice buid up in the winter .Its enough to damage any paint job.By just looking at a houses construction and proper rain drainoff can save years of non repainting.

Fix those issues and then move on to proper paint preparation

Power washing exterior surfaces

This is the first and most important step as paint simply won't stick well to dirty surfaces.
It's safer to use a hose and brush attachment than a power washer as power washers are known to often cause damage . Also consider using Bleach and or anti fungal cleaner if necessary to remove mold or mildew.

Step 2: Scrapping
For paint that is layered or tough to remove use a rotary paint remover which has more power to remove the paint.Some new improvements in painting removal have taken place dust free sand removing sanders have been invented which are a great chice.

Step 3: Sand and Repair
The next step is to sand the edges of the area where the paint was removed to help the new paint cover and hide the edge.

Step 4: Taping and Covering. The better you cover the easier the cleanup at the end.

Step 5 Prime .Use oil primer for bare wood spots as to elliminate any wood from bleading through.

Step 6 Paint .Use the highest quality paint you can afford.Now adays there are paints that can last a li

Paint application by spray is the most popular method in industry. In this, paint is atomized by the force of compressed air or by the action of high pressure compression of the paint itself, which results in the paint being turned into small droplets which travel to the article which is to be painted.

Rollers generally have a handle that allows for different lengths of poles which can be attached to allow for painting at different heights. Generally, roller application takes two coats for even color. A roller with a thicker nap is used to apply paint on uneven surfaces. Edges are often finished with an angled brush.

What is Paint Sheen?
Paint sheen is the level of glossiness in paint. In other words, high gloss paint will make your walls look somewhat shiny while a flat paint won't have any shine. This is important for you because certain sheen paints a better for certain rooms in your home. For example, flat paint conceals scratches and other pre existing wall imperfections well, so it would be a good choice for hallway walls in a household with children. Read below to learn about each paint sheen type.

Flat Paint

Commonly used on most walls
Lowest sheen
Smooth, matte finish
Conceals wall imperfections
Best for painting uneven surfaces or drywall

Satin or Eggshell

Slight sheen
Brings warmth and depth to a room
Easier to clean than compared to flat paint


Very durable
Easiest to clean
Does NOT conceal imperfections
Often used in kitchens and bathrooms
Also frequently used in children's bedrooms


Most durable of all paints
Highest sheen
Used for doors being that it is so durable
Good for trimming baseboard and door frames

Additional Considerations: Oil or Latex Paint?
Most paints come with a base option of oil or latex. Your decision will be based on several factors such as what surface you will be painting and what room you will be applying the paint to.

Oil Paint

Better Abrasion resistance
Higher gloss
More durable then latex
Smoother application than latex
Seals stains well
Harder to clean up after using oil based paint

Latex Paint

More popular because It's easier to clean up, less odor, and overall easier to manage
Water Based
Fast drying
Easy to apply
Resists yellowing, fading and mildew
Good for metal surfaces
Best bet for kitchens, bathrooms
After liquid paint is applied, there is an interval during which it can be blended with additional painted regions (at the "wet edge") called "open time."

The open time of an oil or alkyd-based emulsion paint can be extended by adding white spirit, similar glycols such as Dowanol (propylene glycol ether) or commercial open time prolongers.

This can also facilitate the mixing of different wet paint layers for aesthetic effect. Latex and acrylic emulsions require the use of drying retardants suitable for water-based coatings.

Paint may also be applied by flipping the paint, dripping, or by dipping an object in paint.

Interior/exterior house paint tends to separate when stored, the heavier components settling to the bottom. It should be mixed before use, with a flat wooden stick or a paint mixing accessory; pouring it back and forth between two containers is also an effective manual mixing method. Paint stores have machines for mixing the paint by shaking it vigorously in the can for a few minutes.

The opacity and the film thickness of paint may be measured using a drawdown card.

Oil-based paints when dry tend to be very durable, washable, and long-lasting.

Water-based paints tend to be the safest, and easiest to clean up after using�the brushes and rollers can be cleaned with soap and water.

It is difficult to reseal the paint container and store the paint well for a long period of time. It should be stored upside down, for a good seal. Storage should be in a cool dry place, protected from freezing.

Proper disposal of left over paint is a challenge. Sometimes it can be recycled: Old paint may be usable for a primer coat or an intermediate coat, and paints of similar chemistry can be mixed to make a larger amount of a uniform color.

If it is necessary to dispose of paint, one approach is to dry it, either by leaving the lid off until it solidifies (which tends to work well only for small quantities), or by pouring it into a disposable drying device, such as a piece of plywood surrounded by a lip. Once dry, the paint may be discarded with normal trash. Wet oil based paint should be treated as hazardous waste, and disposed of according to local regulations.

Primer is a preparatory coating put on materials before painting. Priming ensures better adhesion of paint to the surface, increases paint durability, and provides additional protection for the material being painted.
Emulsion paint is a water-based paint used for painting interior or exterior surfaces.
Varnish and shellac provide a protective coating without changing the color. They are paints without pigment.
Wood stain is a type of paint that is very "thin," that is, low in viscosity, and formulated so that the pigment penetrates the surface rather than remaining in a film on top of the surface. Stain is predominantly pigment or dye and solvent with little binder, designed primarily to add color without providing a surface coating.
Lacquer is usually a fast-drying solvent-based paint or varnish that produces an especially hard, durable finish.
An enamel paint is a paint that dries to an especially hard, usually glossy, finish.

Enamel paints contain either glass powder or tiny metal flake fragments instead of the color pigments found in standard oil-based paints. Enamel paint is also mixed with varnish to increase shine as well as assist its hardening process.
A glaze is an additive used with paint to slow drying time and increase translucency, as in Faux Painting and Art Painting.
A roof coating is a fluid applied membrane which has elastic properties that allows it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage. It provides UV protection to polyurethane foam and is widely used as part of a roof restoration system.
Professional painters need to have keen knowledge of the tools including sanders, scrapers, sprayers, brushes, rollers, ladders, scaffolding, in addition to just the paint in order to correctly complete work. Much preparation needs to be considered before simply applying paint. For instance, taping and dropcloth techniques, sizes of brushes or rollers, material types or dimensions of rollers or brushes (there are different sizes or types of brushes and rollers for different paints), amount of paint, number of paint coats, amount of primer, types of primers and paints, certain grits and cuts of sandpaper, trim cutting (the act of painting with a brush on the outline of baseboard, moldings and other trim work), wallpaper removal, and nail hole filling techniques just to name a few.

Today many painters are attempting to break into the field of faux painting, allowing them more creativity and access to a higher end customer base.

Pigments are granular solids incorporated into the paint to contribute color, toughness or simply to reduce the cost of the paint. Alternatively, some paints contain dyes instead of or in combination with pigments.

Pigments can be classified as either natural or synthetic types. Natural pigments include various clays, calcium carbonate, mica, silicas, and talcs. Synthetics would include engineered molecules, calcined clays, blanc fix, precipitated calcium carbonate, and synthetic silicas.

Hiding pigments, in making paint opaque, also protect the substrate from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light. Hiding pigments include titanium dioxide, phthalo blue, red iron oxide, and many others.

Fillers are a special type of pigment that serve to thicken the film, support its structure and simply increase the volume of the paint. Fillers are usually comprised of cheap and inert materials, such as talc, lime, baryte, clay, etc. Floor paints that will be subjected to abrasion may even contain fine quartz sand as a filler. Not all paints include fillers. On the other hand some paints contain very large proportions of pigment/filler and binder.

Some pigments are toxic, such as the lead pigments that are used in lead paint. Paint manufacturers began replacing white lead pigments with the less toxic substitute, titanium white (titanium dioxide), even before lead was functionally banned in paint for residential use in 1978 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The titanium dioxide used in most paints today is often coated with silicon or aluminum oxides for various reasons such as better exterior durability, or better hiding performance (opacity) via better efficiency promoted by more optimal spacing within the paint film.
Fingerpaint is a kind of paint intended to be applied with the fingers; it typically comes in pots and is used by small children, though it has very occasionally been used by adults either to teach art to children, or for their own independent use.
Inks are similar to paints, except they are typically made using finely ground pigments or dyes, and are designed so as not to leave a thick film of binder.

Titanium dioxide is extensively used for both house paint and artist's paint, because it is permanent and has good covering power. Titanium oxide pigment accounts for the largest use of the element. Titanium paint is an excellent reflector of infrared, and is extensively used in solar observatories where heat causes poor seeing conditions.
Anti-Graffiti paints are used to defeat the marking of surfaces by graffiti artists.

There are two categories, sacrificial and non-bonding. Sacrificial coatings are clear coatings that allow the removal of graffiti, usually by pressure washing the surface with high-pressure water, removing the graffiti, and the coating (hence, sacrificed.)

They must be re-applied afterward for continued protection. This is most commonly used on natural-looking masonry surfaces, such as statuary and marble walls, and on rougher surfaces that are difficult to clean.

Non-bonding coatings are clear, high-performance coatings, usually catalyzed polyurethanes, that allow the graffiti very little to bond to. After the graffiti is discovered, it can be removed with the use of a solvent wash, without damaging the underlying substrate or protective coating.

These work best when used on smoother surfaces, and especially over other painted surfaces, including murals.
Anti-climb paint is a non-drying paint that appears normal while still being extremely slippery.

It is usually used on drainpipes and ledges to deter burglars and vandals from climbing them, and is found in many public places.

When a person attempts to climb objects coated with the paint, it rubs off onto the climber, as well as making it hard for them to climb.

No-VOC paints, which are solvent-free paints that do not contain volatile organic compounds, have been available since the late 1980s. Low VOC paints, which typically contain anywhere between 0.3%-5.0% VOCs as coalescent, or coalescing solvent have been available since the 1960s. 0 VOC paints have recently been introduced to the market place, circa 2006
