Another tip! If you’re painting textured walls, even edge lock tape won’t always do the trick! You can put the tape on the wall and then go over the edges with a thin stripe or PAINTABLE clear caulking! One part will come up with the tape, the other stays on the wall under the paint, and keeps the paint from seeping under the edge of the tape. Just remember to keep it thin so you don’t see it on the wall! Hazel February 25, 2015

Once work begins, hold brief daily meetings to discuss the job and schedule and quash any misunderstandings. If there are surprises, seek middle ground. No contract can anticipate every possibility. Materials may be unavailable. Large chunks of rotten siding may crumble along with the old paint. Exterior jobs may be stopped cold by a week of steady rain. But know that you’ll pay extra if you change your mind about a color after the trim is already painted or otherwise add tasks to the project.
Older homes often have surfaces that newer homes don’t. Plaster walls, exposed brick, wood paneling and exterior architectural blocks are common in older homes. Using the right paint and tools on these surfaces (plus the right paint and tools for the room itself) is important to ensure the longevity of the project.
For the EmeraldPro Painting homepage, the designers opted to focus on the company’s various different services. The consistent branding is further enhanced by the use of navy and green throughout. Of course, the latter color works great for a company with “emerald” in its name.
Everything from the estimate to the finished product went without a hitch. The crew were professional and took great care to be neat and complete. No request went unattended and you can always tell when people take pride in their work. I'm looking forward to future projects with Kelly involved.
Depending upon what you’re painting, you may not need all of these. For example, if you’re just painting trim, painter’s tape and a single drop cloth should suffice. When painting window trim, it can be easier and more accurate to mask-off the glass from the frame (if you have a steady hand, masking may be an unnecessary hassle). Masking tape or painter’s tape can make painting multi-lite windows a breeze. ©Don Vandervort, HomeTips

You will also want to ensure that you paint at a period when there are no major fluctuations of temperature from day to night. Major temperature fluctuations cause the paint to react and thus prevent it from curing properly. This means you will have unevenly painted surfaces with peels and cracks.
