Professional Tips and Tricks
In my 40 years as a house painter and contractor, I've gathered many tips and practices that are now part of my every day routine. Some of these tips simply make my work faster or more efficient. Other tips help produce higher quality results.
I'm certain that homeowners painting their own dwellings will benefit from these suggestions. Less-experienced contractors may also find my suggestions helpful, so over the coming days and weeks I hope to provide this information freely via my Twitter feed.
Why am I sharing this hard-earned experience? It's my belief that generosity of knowledge and practice brings benefits to the giver and the recipient. I hope you'll call on me the next time you require a professional house painter.
You can access previous tips and keep up-to-date by "following" me on Twitter.
Paint brush tip #1: Use synthetic (e.g. nylon, polyester, etc) paint brushes for water-based paints and natural bristle brushes for other paints. You can use some synthetic brushes for oil paints, but you cannot use natural bristle brushes for water-based paints, as water will ruin bristle brushes.
