My name is Steve White from MasterCraft Painting here in San Diego.
Today we’re going to talk about how to paint your house. One of the most important things is the surface prep and we’re going to be showing you some clips, very shortly on how to do the several different processes that are involved in the proper painting of your home.
Any of these steps can be skipped but basically the coding is going to suffer and paint job won’t last as long so it’s important to make sure that all these steps are followed.
So right now, we’re just going to touch briefly on some of the tools that you’re going to need.
The basic tools are the scrapers and sanders, and different tools that you can find at any home center, some power sanders that we have that make the job just a little bit faster but you can do the same thing with just sheets of sandpaper and hand scrapers, a garden hose and a high pressure sprayer and maybe a scrub brush.
And we’ve got professional water blaster which you could also rent at your local rental yard. We also have caulking guns and putty knives, paper, tape and plastic for masking up and protecting surfaces that you don’t want to paint and brushes, rollers, buckets and grids; different things.
And we also have to make the job go quicker again. We have professional paint sprayer. It’s a hydraulic sprayer that really didn’t take that long to learn how to use. It might be a little bit scary at first but you can also rent this at you rental yards and again makes the job go a lot quicker.
So just a little bit about my credentials, I’ve been painting for about 25 years now, member of some trade associations like the National Alliance of Professional Painters, and I’m also licensed in the State of California as a painting contractor.
