What about a paint sprayer? A spray-painted finish may not be quite as durable as hand-painted one, but using a power sprayer can be a real time saver, especially on hard-to-paint irregular surfaces such as shingle siding and latticework.

Peeling paint, chipped siding, or other issues are often symptoms of underlying issues in the stucco or wood. A house's frame can become damaged by weather over time, which can bubble up into surface-level issues with the outer coats of paint. At SF House Painting, we recognize this, and prioritize carpentry and repair work which fixes the underlying issues. All of our projects start with this preparation phase, ensuring the longevity of your paint job. We even offer a free five-year warranty. We're that confident that our products will last. Contact SF House Painting if your house is in need of a new paint job.

Before painting, seal-up any gaps between siding and trim. Painters recommend using paintable100% acrylic caulk for multi-purpose caulking. For caulking seams where heavy water flow can occur, choose a paintable polyurethane (PL) caulking compound. Caulk all separations between varying materials. ©Greg McGill / Shutterstock.com

Good contracts include descriptions of prep work and repairs; paint specs by brand name, type, color and product number (check Consumer Reports’ paint ratings; in its tests, some relatively inexpensive paints performed better than more expensive ones and cost $10 to $20 less per gallon); number of coats; and a full description of the work, including frequently omitted items such as cabinet interiors and shutters.
Taking on an interior paint job by yourself will almost always be cheaper. But you need to consider the time it will take you to do the job right. Sometimes you sacrifice quality as well.

Once all the walls were patched, repaired, dry, and sanded it was time to spray on the primer. Using the sprayer took some getting used to. If you do have a big project ahead of you and decide to buy or rent a sprayer, here are a few tips I (as an amateur) would pass on to you when it comes to using a sprayer:
I ended up scraping off paint and wallpaper down to the plaster. It took a couple days to finish. I’m so glad they only did that in the one room! Again, moisture really helped in the process. The more I soaked the walls, the easier it was to scrape and remove the wallpaper and paint. After I had the entire room scraped down to the bare plaster walls, I realized I would have to repair some cracks and skim coat the entire room if there were going to be halfway decent looking walls.
Looking forward to trying out some of your painting tips soon! Thanks for the post. Carolyn Selheim-Miller February 25, 2015
