For the finish, apply one or two coats of premium 100% acrylic latex paint made for metal siding. In most cases, satin or eggshell finishes look good on metal siding and offer longevity. Apply the paint with a paintbrush, as discussed above, under “Wood siding.”

Painting the exterior of your home is more complicated than simply buying and applying paint. The effort requires a great deal of knowledge and skill in order to achieve the best possible results. In addition, preparation is vitally important.
There are options when it comes to what type of paint to choose for your home interior. There are several different kinds of water and oil-based paints. We won’t be able to cover them all. But here are a few of the standard varieties.
“Paint is the simplest, most effective, and most transformative way to change a space,” says Christina Hoffmann, concept manager of HouseLogic.com, a homeownership and buying resource produced by the National Association of Realtors. “The right kind of paint can make a small room look bigger and a cavernous room look smaller,” she adds.
For this step, you’ll need: A paintable wood putty, wood putty knives (assorted sizes), sandpaper, and an orbital sander.
Some rooms simply have more detail and require more specialty painting including cabinetry, molding, multiple colors, faux finishes, wallpaper removal, etc.

If your project will take more than one day, ask if you’ll have the same people in your home for the whole job. Also ask who your main point of contact would be for the project. Would it be the office line, or an on-site project supervisor? Ask if the company uses subcontractors, and if so, whether a representative from the company will be on the job along with the subcontractors.
Another tip to maintain an even finish when cutting-in is to hold your brush parallel to the adjacent surface then draw a 2' - 3' long paint line in one continuous motion about 1/2" -1" away from the edge, until most of the paint that was on your brush has released onto the surface. This will apply the paint evenly along the line, then you can immediately go back over it to bring your cut line closer to the corner without the fear of having so much excess paint on your brush.
Many people who work in the construction or home renovation industries become house painters. The primary tasks of this position are to provide a quotation for painting services, select the paint requested by the owner, prepare the surface and apply the paint. People who enjoy working with their hands, are naturally outgoing and take pride in the details are most suitable to becoming house painters. It is important to note that a house painter must be physically able to work standing up and while moving the upper body for significant periods of time. House painters work on both the inside and outside of houses.

Refilled let go of trigger button then let go of handle and it held the water quite well. Then pressed the button half way down and held it there ... much less pressure however the water came out quite quickly and wasted it all in a matter of about 5 seconds...
If you already have someone painting the outside of your house, it might be a good time to repaint the inside, too. Remember, you’ll likely pay less for one big inside-outside paint job than two separate ones.
Therefore, it is good to aim for a day that has moderate temperature and humidity as well. Paint normally dry well when it not overly humid.
