How to make the paint on your walls look good for a long time?

People often complain about having to invest too much and too frequently in painting the walls of their homes because of how the paint begins to crack up or dull out too soon. GT Painters Sydney though, knows a few tips and tricks that may help you keep your walls looking good for a very long time. Check out our Painting portfolio.

Apply paint correctly

Yes, one of the reasons as to why your paint does not last very long is because of the way it is applied. When painting walls, you need to make sure that the layer you apply is not too thin nor too thick. A layer too thin will be weak and will easily wear out with while a layer that is too thick will begin to sag with time.

Moreover, if you begin painting in bright sunlight or when the wind is too strong, the solvents in paint’s mixture will evaporate making the paint harder to be levelled out properly.

Do not paint on damaged or dirty surfaces

Painting on damaged surfaces will leave an uneven and weak layer of paint that will fade very quickly. It is also important that you do not repaint your walls while there is a damaged layer of paint still present below. Scrape your walls free of damaged paint and remove any dust that forms over the walls because of the scraping.

Dirt and sand form a layer over your walls which is very slippery and if you paint your walls without cleaning it first, the layer of paint will ‘slip’ off the dirt eventually. This can be prevented by cleaning the walls up and clearing away any signs of dirt, cobwebs or mildew.

Moisture

Excessive moisture caused due to leakages and poorly ventilated homes is also one of the major factors that play a part in fading your paint out. The moisture tends to lift the paint as it travels around in your house and makes the paint crack up and sag.

For our new home, we checked a few options and zeroed in on GT Painter Sydney. They were quick to assess our need and gave us a pretty reasonable quote. Must say I am quite pleased with the transparent way they went about it and the quality of their work.
