When do you need to paint your home’s exterior? When the exterior paint is peeling, chipped or cracked.
One of the risks of sanding the old way was releasing dust containing lead into the air. Because we serve older areas of Philadelphia and the rest of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Nolan Painting often works inside homes built before 1978. This means there is a higher risk of lead paint being involved, but you don’t have to worry with the Festool CT HEPA Dust Extractor. The vacuum and filter are connected directly to the sanding tool, and capture dust as it is released, greatly reducing the chance of particulates filtering through the air.
If you can't isolate a color you love – and love in your home – then look for inspiration. Some ideas are probably right in front of you while others may require some searching. Consider: The color of your upholstery, rugs or throw pillows The dominant color in a favored print or work of art The trim on a piece of furniture you'd like to highlight (since choosing a complementary paint color will make that furniture “pop”) Magazines, catalogs or Pinterest (a treasure trove of ideas, as long as you have the time to browse) 4) The Color Wheel:

We started with primer over every surface that would be painted. The paint sprayer was prepped and ready to go. We sprayed one even coat and let it completely dry. The primer that we used was approved for both surfaces. One important technique to remember while spraying is to keep the spray the same distance away from the surface the entire time and to be cautious when overlapping areas. We really liked using the paint shield for areas that we hadn’t taped off. Since our paint/primer were both white, we just careful sprayed around the soffits along the roof line. We cleaned up the paint sprayer completely after the primer was applied and left the paint to dry completely (overnight).
At a minimum I would recommend masking off the top of your baseboards. This will keep paint spatter (small dots of paint that fly off your roller cover) from speckling your trim.
