Homeowners Experience


When you move into a new home, or are in the process of renovating your current home, somewhere along the line, you’ll have to paint one or more rooms in your house. Unless you have professional painting experience, this may come as a challenge. From avoiding streaks to using the right type of paint, homeowners experience a wide variety of problems. Check out how to solve these issues!

How Do I Deal With Paint Runs?

Running paint can be a frustrating process. Luckily this is an easy issue to fix. If you notice running paint marks on your new painted walls, all you need to do is take a piece of fine sandpaper and remove the run. Be sure to retouch the area for a complete and professional look. Keep in mind that if you have paint runs on your walls, this means that you have too much paint on your roller or paintbrush.

What Do I Do With All My Leftover and Unused Paint?

It is in your best interest to keep at least a tiny bit of the same paint, just in case you need to complete touch ups or add that color to another area of your home. If you have more than you need, many area organizations are in need of paint. From creative organizations to churches to shelters, you’ll be able to find someone who will need paint! If you strike out, look up your local Middle Tennessee waste regulations to see how and where you can discard your extra paint.

What Can I Do To Avoid Painting On Roller Marks?

If you are painting in your home, it is in your best interest to purchase a quality paint roller. Cheap rollers have obvious seams that will appear quite visibly on your walls! Plus, the type of paint you purchase will have an affect on the appearance of your wall. Be sure to use top quality paint in your Murfreesboro, TN home.
