While paint of course is necessary to have your house painted all over, you would have to use a lot of different equipment so that you would paint your house faster and much better. That would make some of you think, what equipment do we need? Or isn’t a brush and some paint already enough? Unless you are contented with your house looking like a 5-year old’s crayon sketch then maybe that is all you need.

Painting your house is like producing artwork with the house itself as the canvas and with that, you have to put in a lot to make it look like a masterpiece. In order to get you there, you need much more than just a brush and paint. Here are some house painting equipment you can really use.

Painting Materials

The most basic medium of applying paint to the house is by the means of a brush. While there are numerous options nowadays that would tend to make the brush obsolete since these new options are way faster and more effective, some still prefer the using the brush because it is the best way of painting some parts especially those of which you would have to pay close attention to or some small details such as window and door frames.

Aside from the brush, you can use a roller. The roller is much faster and is really effective in spreading paint evenly on where you apply it. If you have the budget, you can go one step further, which is to make use of an airbrush. This is the fastest and most effective way of painting however; it is also the most expensive method.

Cleaning Equipment

After you have painted your house, it is now time to clean things up. That means that you would of course have to clean a lot of things after you have painted your house. Fortunately, this is very easy to do nowadays with the presence of a lot of new cleaning materials and fluids that are most likely available in housing supplies near you.

If paint goes to some parts of which you don’t want it to be, you can remove that using paint thinner. Thinner can also be used to remove paint from the tips of your brushes, this of which you should do right after you are finished painting. If paint gets on to your skin, you can easily remove it with some lotions that are also designed specifically for that purpose.

If you use latex paint, water is already enough to remove stains since latex is water based. Only use other fluids if you are using other types of paint.

Other Equipment Needed

When painting, you would of course have to get to some parts that you could not reach naturally. For you to be able to do so, you can do this through a ladder. Ladders now are more than what they used to be, some would fold to form different forms thus allowing you to move much freely than how the traditional ladder would.

For some, they would want to know if they applied just the right amount of paint. They can measure this through an electronic device which would let them know if they did meet what they wanted to. Although this house painting equipment is not really necessary, it is a big advantage especially if you are a commercial house painter.

Mike’s team was great. We had a very large project consisting of some carpentry and repainting the entire house. From start to finish they impressed me with their attention to detail and just overall work. Highly recommend.

I couldn't have asked for more. From the estimate to completion, Mike and his crew were top notch and professional. I just needed a few rooms painted but his price was fair and everything went according to plan. I recommend Mike's Painting to anyone looking for someone you can trust to do a job well done.

Mike and his crew were FANTASTIC. We called him, gave him the scope of the work, he gave us a very reasonable estimate on the spot, and had the crew start the project the following week. They painting my entire 2200 sq ft. house in TWO DAYS. Very efficient, quality work. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat! Mike was always very clear, patient, and nice. Best painters in Marietta, GA

Excellent service from start to finish. They replaced the drywall in my kitchen ceiling that has removed due to a water leak. They also repainted the ceiling and replaced the light fixture. It took them less than two hours to complete the entire job. Work area was clean and looked like nothing ever happened. Thank you!
