Interior House Painting Sacramento California Tips
Read on to learn how to make the most out of your interior house painting Sacramento experience. Make sure that you know how to handle your painting contractor, as this is just as important as the paint itself!
Interior Paints: the majority of interior painting is done with latex paint. Latex paint is water soluble, and you can get them in any color of the rainbow. If your room won’t experience much wear, you can use low-gloss or flat finishes. For the most active rooms in your home, you may want to invest in glossier finishes. You’ll be able to keep the walls of your Sacramento home in better shape with good, glossy finish.
If you have painted trim and floorboards, you can use glossy finishes to contrast it with the flat wall paint – it’ll also help the trim protect against wear and tear. Oil-based paint is perfect for extremely humid areas with high traffic, such as bathrooms. Those of you who really want to protect their wall from really tough conditions, use high-gloss enamel finishes for oil-based paint.
Using Paint: You’ll typically find that you can get 400 square feet of wall covered with a gallon of paint. The quality of the surface can fudge these numbers a bit, as well as the thickness of application and color. If you hire on a professional, you can count on the paint being used as efficiently as possible. If you use two thin coats of paint rather than one thicker coat, you’ll get much more surface area covered per gallon.
Surfaces of Interior Walls: Wall surfaces come in many types. Most modern houses typically have a textured drywall surface on their walls. You’ll notice the small ripples and bumps on the surface of the wall. You can also find smooth drywall in a lot of Sacramento homes nowadays, and has a glass-like smoothness. There’s also plaster, which is often used in the interior walls of some of the older Sacramento homes; it’s made from putty trawled on a lath. If your house was made before 1930, it has wooden strip lathes; commercial buildings, on the other hand, have metal lathes. If you apply it right, it’ll have the appearance of finished drywall, just like most homes, but it’s easier to crack.
Painter Preparation: Make sure to clear the house of any obstructions, like furniture and lamps, that can hinder the work of the Sacramento painting contractor you hired. Cover your furniture with drop clothes and get them out of the way. Vacuum all the baseboards and corners, to keep it clean. You can typically trust the painter to tape off and cover everything that shouldn’t be painted.
You should make sure the painter has plenty of water nearby, which can help them maintain clean tools and not have to wander through the house. Restrain pets and smaller children from the areas that you are having painted, so they don’t interfere with the work. If you don’t, the entire paint job can be ruined by messy fingers or tail marks!
