How to paint a house
A paint sprayer will help to paint the house from the outside, as it will provide a more homogeneous and even layer of paint. However, its use requires some skills, so you can do with other tools.
In order to paint brick walls, some craftsmen use homemade «gloves» from old clothes, dipping them in paint, rubbing it into the facade. This method is suitable only for painting small surfaces.
The process of painting itself is quite simple. Paint on the wall roll out in one direction. The following approaches are painted with an overlap, so that there is no «bald head» between the strips.
To start painting the house is better from the top corner in the direction down. Cover with a second coat of paint can only after the full drying of the first. Applying it, we roll the roller in different directions, resulting in a uniform surface.
Do not forget to check the weather forecast
After the walls are painted, it is important to prevent them from getting debris or rain. So for work, choose a dry and windless weather. You can paint the house only at a temperature of 5-25ºС, not higher and not lower.
The exception is the all-season paint, which can be worked up to minus 10 ° C.
Do not chase the quick-drying paint, it's much harder to work.
