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.

Tip:

When painting textured ceilings use a "split foam roller" which is intended for this purpose. A split foam roller is made of foam and has cuts around the circumference which allow the loose texture to migrate from the roller's surface.

Ordinary rollers are not satisfactory for rolling unpainted popcorn texture, as the loose texture material collects on the surface of the roller.

Split foam rollers are designed to avoid this problem.
