Blending Colours and Integrating Patterns: Unique Painting Ideas

Hi. My name is Kate. Welcome to my blog. I love painting, but I also love the art of collage. As a result, I like to play with colours and patterns when I painting. I have done everything from painting with sponges to freehand painting murals and patterns. I love it. As a busy mum with two kids and several dogs, I don't always have the time to paint that I like, but if I had more time, I would probably repaint a room every other week. Anyway, I decided to start a blog about painting and wallpapering. I hope you like these ideas.

Tasks a Residential Painter Can Handle for You

When you consider using a residential painter, you may only think about the initial concept of an interior or exterior paint job. The truth is, there are several other tasks that a residential painter can handle for you that can reduce the time you spend on various home improvement and related projects. Before you try to handle everything yourself during a renovation or remodeling project, consider these tasks and how residential painters can help. 

Wallpaper Removal

One of the most difficult tasks for some people is remove layers and layers of wallpaper and paint while trying to maintain the look of the original hardwood walls underneath. Depending on how old a home is, and how many times the room has been painted or upgraded, you could be facing the use of harsh chemicals or scrapers that could damage and derail the project. Residential painters can remove the old wallpaper and paint with steam and gentle chemicals while maintaining the wood finish underneath. They can also help you restore the wood if necessary and remove glue and other debris left from the layered wall decor.

Concrete Sealing

One of the tasks that you will need to have done on occasion is concrete sealing. This is for your foundation, basement areas, driveways, and other concrete areas that you may have on the property. The sealing process can be long and difficult if you are not skilled in what you are doing or if you don't have the right equipment. Residential painters can come in and handle the concrete sealing, drying, and entire process for you. This is something they can do both to your interior and exterior of your home.

Power Washing and Deck Cleaning

When you think about power washing your home or cleaning the deck, the last thing you may think of is a residential painter. The truth is, these tasks are something that most residential painters will handle and can do fairly easy. In most cases, they will be able to power wash your home, driveway, walkways, and decks as well as power wash your basement should you need that task handled as well. They can also help with special cleaning of oil stains and other stains that may be more difficult to remove from certain areas. 

These are just a few of the tasks that residential painters can handle. If you are ready to move forward with your home project and think a painter can help, contact one today for pricing and scheduling.
