House Painting – Interior House Painting Tips / Prep – Fix – Paint / Important Things To Know



I'm your host Jason if you're planning to repaint interior of your house this video is going to show you what to expect from a project like this and along the way we're going to guide you through with some tips and suggestions the tape and drape that we use is very nice because it's got this blue tape at the top which is similar to the Scotch blue tape which is commonly referred to as painters tape because of its adhesion that won't pull off any finishes or any of the paint that's already on the wall it sticks from some static electricity so that no dust gets inside now this will go up and down depending on your usage needs for the kitchen this is much easier than having to try to use plastic and tape especially if you're trying to do this on your own as a homeowner I like to use pair of scissors instead of a razor blades you get a much better cut much cleaner line overlapping joints make sure when you pull it down it has no bare spots we're going to lay more plastic over all these countertops remember I always leave some overhang when you're cutting the plastic stuff like this because you do want to protect these sides as well now we don't have to put any more tape on things than we need to run less risk of pulling any other finishes off this is very common problem you're in a climate we have a lot of hot and cold temperatures because of the expansion and contraction of the natural woods that you're going to have on the wall that gets hit with Sun in the morning after a cold night it's going to want to pull away so the caulking is now split and cracked what you have to do there is if you dig out the old caulking once you've cleaned out all the old caulking you have a nice clean area you're going to give it a quick bath as a tip that most homeowners might not know about the other cocktail we all know it's a mess and no one likes to deal with it it gets everywhere and gets sticky if you grab a bucket of water and a sponge or a nice wet rag clean of course it'll help wipe it out I would take all the highways off your doors it's really not that hot helps give a cleaner finish with all the grain of the wood flow together no brush marks and there's no risk of getting any pain in any of your highway now if you have a lot of these to do you might be tempted to use a power drill with the nice finish like this it's better use a hand screwdriver just helps eliminate any jumping of your screw tip anything so you don't scratch any of the hardware because you want it to go on exactly as it came off put the couple pieces of tape over the screws hold them over you can't jump out and put everything back together the way that you took it apart there we have no risk of losing any of the important things nothing worse – finishing the job of being one screw light put a little bit of tape on the handle grab a marker just label it now you know what you have we know where it goes you have every piece that's important now you're going to have a lot of these things called stress cracks just from your house settling you need to do when you have a problem like this you take your five and one you dig out the crack give it a little more surface area you're going to want to do just run a light skin coat of joint compound first scrape the excess off you got your mesh tape out some people call it waffle tape it's just drywall tape now you've laid out with the thin coat it helps it stick now you've got to this point a lot of people use a razor knife to cut it then you're risking getting another scar or cut into the wall grab your putty knife press down hard and pull clean cut no extras no problems you're going to add a little bit of joint compound and lids give it a little bit of back and forth kind of work it in and apply now it's going to shrink so don't try to go over boil and put a heavy coat on it pravin you is going to end up with a lot of air pockets chances are this will have to be done at least twice I'm going to want to go around very far out say if it's an inch and a half that you're fixing you want to bring it out about a foot because we call that bridging that way you get a smooth transition from the original wall to the patched wall back to the original wall so you don't see a bump when the lights edit a certain angle now this might be a problem that you have in any house where you have some running through the moist wood before it was primed and painted and it was put in and some of the moisture is trying to escape when that happens you get yellow which lot knots you have to seal those in and also just keep coming back see something like this this is a sealer this happens to be kills but you can also use Ben's diced an alcohol base this one is a paint thinner base this is by no means a finish coat this is mean meant strictly to seal all that and the best part about this stuff is it all dries in about 20 minutes so and will cut into your time still be able to productive it here's another tip for you when you're done using your kills brush the oil base or an alcohol base just take a little bit of the tape and drape a regular plastic you can wrap it right up then stow it in your freezer and as soon as you need it you can pull it back out wait about five minutes and be good to go with the power most people get nervous cutting in straight lines in the ceiling no reason to be nervous just take your time take a deep breath and always remember to paint back to the wet you can always be touch it up just make sure keep a steady line take your time and always paint back to the wet paint painting trim on windows scared he gets a pane in the glass it's actually encouraged get a little on there create a paper bag I'll show you a little trick in a second I'm going to do with the extra oil paint on the glass to do is you score it with the edge your razor blade you grab we call a zip tool something that holds a razor blade go into all the pot store with your pants up and then grab your dust brush just brush it right away clean line now you've got your work I prep done and they're going to start putting some color on the wall here's a nice little tip for you for you start rolling your color onto your walls you take a fresh roller nap give it a nice little wrap with some painters tape now what this is going to do just pull all over the loose hair and lint that's still part of the fabric I'm not sure if you can see it on the camera but all that extra lint it's stuck to the tape right now would have found its way into your paint and onto your walls and ruined your finish coat all right here's a good little tip for you we've already got one coat of the wall color up and instead of wasting a perfectly good nap wrapped it up with some tape and drape because it will keep for at least a few days without any I just getting dried as soon as you take it out it's ready to roll now they're going to start rolling a wall just want to get nicely saturated rolling that not too much of their drifts put it up to propane while start off about the center of the wall you always want to be leading with this edge because it's the heaviest edge you don't want to leave any rails any lines in it because the lighter edge will feather them out you're going to bring it over about to roll the Wits from where you end it off when you bring it over you want to make sure you overlap your last stroke all right well I pretty much wraps it up here hope I didn't scare you away from tamping a project like this on your own I'm Jason good luck in your future projects and remember we always had to help you

    Today's tips are little clips like modern manipulating news. This was one of a few good ones. There are many tips and tricks, but without basics those are worthless.

    Awesome video. This guy is very contentious and has a good eye for detail which is exactly what a good decorator should have. There are others who are just bodge merchants who don't care about a professional finish and quality work and would rather rush jobs, make a mess, take the money and run. A lot of the tips here are not only useful for diyers looking to get a quality paint finish but for painting pros, nice job all around.

    Grate vid but personally I put masking tape on windows because when ur pounding your scraper against the corner of the glass if there's a slight gap between the trim and the glass it will definitely crack mainly on old windows

    I'm a painter of 15yrs. Some of the stuff you did was not only wrong but also a waste of money. You did great with the caulking. But that static tape and plastic stuff is crap and is probably more expensive then it is to get a couple rolls of tape and a roll of plastic. I could cover a whole house by myself with tape and plastic probably quicker then you could a room or two. 2nd is when you seen that crack you should of not only put a heavier 1st coat of spackle so that the tape would stick 100percent to it but also should of used the other drywall tape. Js. Waste of money was using tape to pull off the hairs of your roller. If you take a new roller and put it under the faucet and stroke it downwards it will get all the hairs and fibers out in less the 3min. Also if your using an oil base primer you should absolutely not put it in the freezer afterwards cause once it thaws out it will have alot of condensation in and on it and as we all know water and oil do not mix! You should wrap it in paper and put in a half can of thinner. And those roller trays your using are for DIY people not pros! Is a 5 gal bucket filled up about half way and a grid and your golden and is quicker! Just my tips and tricks of the trade. God bless brotha
