Ceiling Painting

Looking for an easy way to get you ceiling painted? Rolling up your own sleeves and getting out the paint can be a tiring and difficult task. You’ll need to put aside at least a couple of days to get your house done. Often, it’s better to hire a professional. It’s certainly possible to paint your own ceiling, but you need to have the time, energy and care to get through it.

Let’s look at some of the things involved.

Using painter’s tape to prepare a ceiling for painting.

 

The first step to painting your ceiling is to lay painter’s tape around the perimeter. This needs to be done accurately to ensure the paint has a clean edge. Old painting tape can sometimes be too sticky, and can tear existing paint, or be too weak, and will fall off during the paint.

 

Will my ceiling need two coats?

 

Yes. If you want a professional look without any patchiness, you will need to go over your ceiling with two coatings of paint.

 

What’s the best method for painting a ceiling?

 

For the first coat of paint, use a roller to apply the paint in any manner. As long as you cover the entire area, it will be fine. Avoid holding the roller directly over your head, as it may drip paint onto your face or eyes. For the second coat, paint in parallel lines to maintain uniformity.

Feature Wall Painting

Sometimes a room needs a little more than the single shade of colour that is usually used to paint it. Experiment and see what you can do; go bold and make a feature wall that catches the eye. Or, focus on finding a soft colour that gently compliments the rest of the room.

 

How can I choose a nice colour paint for my feature wall?

 

This most important thing to consider, if you want a wall that compliments the rest of the room, is the colour wheel. Images that are close to each other on the wheel will look harmonious together and give you room a sense of balance and unity. Colours that are distant from each other on the colour wheel will stand out from each other. If this is not done carefully, and can be jarring and unattractive.

 

What are some great ideas for feature walls?

 

If you’re really wild and you’re willing to take a bit of a risk, considering using printed wallpaper for your feature wall. This can look great if done well, and also allows you to say something interesting about your room and your own personality.

 

Features walls are meant to call attention to the room. It’s important that you choose a layout and style that strengthens the overall aesthetic of the room, rather than disrupting it. Call in a Taskforce painter. Their years of experience can help you make decisions about colour choices for your rooms.

Floor painting

Floor painting is a great option for large spaces. A coat of paint can make the place look great, and can make the floor more durable and long lasting.

 

Painting your garage floor may also be a good decision. Uncoated concrete can disintegrate and creak into dust that will fill the air and cover your belongings. A coated floor is easier to clean, is cheap to do, looks good and makes your garage appear brighter.

Roof painting

 

Roof painting is quite a difficult task and really depends on the kind of roof that you have and the particular reason that you might want to paint your roof. Most roofs are designed to last a very long time. Painting your roof for cosmetic reasons is a reasonable decision if you want to have your house look new.

 

A new coat of paint to your roof can make it look completely new. Painting your roof white can also help you cool your house during summer (white reflects the most sunlight).

 

If you are thinking of painting your roof for functional reasons, you are better off calling a roof repairman. A roof repairman can take care of a long list of different roof related issues:

 

            Displaced roof tiles.

            Cracked or broken cement mortar under tiles

            Block gutters or roof drainage.

 

For all of your roof service needs; from painting and maintenance to roofing repair and installation, call Taskforce. Taskforce has professionals Australia wide from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane & Perth to the smallest rural town, Taskforce can service anyone, anywhere in Australia.
