The next option was using oil based primer. That stuff is not fun to work with. The fumes are not fun to work around (be sure to open windows!), and you can’t wash it off without using more chemicals. Fortunately somebody suggested we try bleaching the stains, which sounded a bit more feasible and manageable. So we tried it. Dawning coveralls and face masks, and armed with a pump garden sprayer filled with diluted bleach (mostly water with a couple capfuls of bleach), we attacked the stains. After a couple spray downs, the yellow started to disappear! For a couple of days, we misted the ceiling, waited a couple hours and repeated. Most stains were taken care of, the rest were dissolved enough to prime over.
For the EmeraldPro Painting homepage, the designers opted to focus on the company’s various different services. The consistent branding is further enhanced by the use of navy and green throughout. Of course, the latter color works great for a company with “emerald” in its name.
Another tip! If you’re painting textured walls, even edge lock tape won’t always do the trick! You can put the tape on the wall and then go over the edges with a thin stripe or PAINTABLE clear caulking! One part will come up with the tape, the other stays on the wall under the paint, and keeps the paint from seeping under the edge of the tape. Just remember to keep it thin so you don’t see it on the wall! Hazel February 25, 2015
Adhesive primers are a type of latex primer used on difficult exterior surfaces such as metal and glazed brick. This is mainly used as an exterior primer because those materials are most often found outside. Regular latex-based primers are rather flexible even once dry, making them a great choice for drywall, fiber cement, and softwood. Oil-based primers, on the other hand, are best for covering damages because it penetrates deep into the surface to which it is applied. It is best used on hardwood because it acts as a natural sealant. Shellac primers prevent odors and mildew growth, so they are preferred for smoke- or water-damaged walls.
Decide if you will need extra colors, which means the purchase of additional paint. Factor in both interior and exterior paint at $40 per gallon. A gallon of paint gives approximately one coat of coverage for every 360 square feet of wall. Add that to your total.

Most of the time, painting contractors will charge based on the square footage of the surface area they have to paint.
A 3,000 sq. ft. home is a bit larger than the average home and generally has three to four bedrooms, two to three bathrooms, a living room, a dining room, and a kitchen. The cost to paint a 3,000 square foot home ranges between $9,000 and $12,000 only for the interior. An exterior painting job ranges from $5,000 and $11,400. Therefore, the typical cost to paint a house this size will be between $14,000 and $23,400.
The cost to paint the interior of an L.A. home depends on several key factors including:
One downside of using a sprayer is that you must meticulously protect surrounding surfaces from overspray with plastic sheeting and drop cloths. And, because of overspray, you can’t use a paint sprayer outdoors during breezy conditions. See more about how to use a paint sprayer below.
Yes i completely agree with getting quality tools! I have had so many frustrations from buying garbage tools. It ends up costing more in the long run. Thank you so much for sharing this was very helpful! Painter December 26, 2020
Just as there are different types of paint, there are different types of primer, each with its own price point. Whenever possible, you should use a primer with the same base as your paint (i.e. oil-based primer with oil-based paint or latex-based primer with latex-based paint).
When buying paintbrushes, don’t skimp on quality. A well-made brush will make your work much easier and more successful. A quality paintbrush has many different lengths of bristles with split ends (yes, just like hair) that allow the brush to hold more paint. A wooden handle secures tightly packed bristles.
