Paint your House

Getting Started:

Make sure you have the right equipment for the job at hand.

Things you may need:

  • RollerĀ 
  • Roller Tray
  • Various Brushes (Radiator & Window Brushes)
  • Ground Sheet
  • Masking Tape
  • Ladder
  • Thinners
  • Paint
  • Filler and Scraper

Prepare the room first by sanding down rough areas and taping up the places
that you want to protect from paint, such as light fittings, switches etc.

Fill any small cracks and allow to dry and sand down in readiness for the paint.

Make sure ground sheets are in place and cover any remnaining items of furniture
if applicable. Its always easier to clear a room when you can to allow free movement
and faster application.

You can find many sample videos on YouTube to help you if you prefer a visual reference.
