BENJAMIN MOORE APPLICATORS
Beckerle lumber - Lumber ONE when it comes to Benjamin Moore ApplicatorsWhen it comes to painting the exterior of your home, using the right painting tools will ensure the best results. You've finally decided to give your home's exterior a new paint job. You've already picked the paint color, but are unsure on which tools are needed to get the job done right. Using the right materials and equipment will not only make the task easier but also ensure that you'll be proud of the results and enjoy them for a long time. Surface Preparation Tools Surface preparation is crucial in painting exteriors. It is essential to have a dry, clean surface and the appropriate prep tools at your disposal. (Depending on the size of the exterior you need to prep, a power washer can be used to help clean the surface faster.) A scraper or flexible putty knife is essential in removing cracked or peeling paint. You can apply caulking compound or putty to cracks, nail holes, or other surface depressions with a caulking gun or a putty knife. You can remove powder from mineral leaching on stucco and masonry by using a steel wool or wire brush. For smoothing out imperfections, sags, drips, or runs, use sandpaper, and then remove sanding dust with a damp, lint-free cloth. Painting Tools: Brush, Roller, or Spray Gun? Once you've properly prepared the surface, you're ready to paint. Depending on the type of surface you are painting, paints may be applied with a nylon/polyester brush, a roller, or a sprayer. Spray guns cover large areas more quickly than brushes or rollers and are the most efficient way to paint most large exterior surfaces. Brushing takes considerably longer, but is ideal for windows and intricate trim work. Many professional painters use a combination of both methods, spraying to quickly get paint on the surface, followed by back brushing to spread the paint out evenly. Rollers are also excellent tools for painting large areas more quickly than brushes when not using a spray gun. They can be used for painting walls, stucco, concrete, or any other flat surface. Brushes Nylon and polyester blended brushes are the best choice for all latex paints and coatings. A natural China bristle brush is the best choice for oil-based paints, stains, epoxies, and varnishes because natural bristles will soak up the water and go limp in water-based paints. Brushes vary in size. The larger 4- to 5-inch brush is recommended for larger areas. A 2.5- to 3-inch one is perfect for any trim and corner work, and 1- to 2-inch brush is ideal for small spaces, tight trim areas, touch-ups, and detail work. Rollers Rollers can be used to apply both latex and oil coatings, and do a fine job with gloss and semi-gloss coatings. The standard roller length is 9 inches. For larger, flat areas use 14-inch and 18-inch rollers to get the job done more quickly. For smaller areas, like corners around window frames a 4-inch or 7-inch roller cover may be used.
