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
Besides applying two coats satisfies the warranty, it also extends the paint job’s life for years.

It took a couple days to get the house primed. When that was done, it was time for our paint party! We had some people over and painted colors, whites, trims, and doors. You can see the color choices here. The walls were painted a semi-gloss paramount white and the trim was gloss ultra white. Choosing two different sheens gives contrast and a bit more depth. The semi-gloss and gloss painted walls are also easier to clean compared to flat paint.
The average cost to paint a room yourself is $100 to $300, which includes supplies and paint. Painting a house interior DIY is time-consuming and requires moving furniture, prepping the area, applying the paint, and cleaning up. Compare this to hiring professional painters at $300 to $800 per room.
Ignacio and his crew were prompt, hard working and very detail oriented. They got the exterior of our one story 3br ranch done in just over 3 days! 2/3 of that work was prepping the house even before painting- they are thorough!Everyone that worked on our house was very respectful and they were the best quote we got in town, with no surprise charges at the end. We couldn't be happier with the service Mayco provided us with, highly recommend.

Because I used to be a teacher in the past life, I know how to make house painting simple.

It is time to consider hiring house painters if you spot any bubbling, cracking, fading or flaking paint, or hardened caulk.
My house was a 70s build, and almost completely wallpapered with a lot of the wallpaper painted over, which definitely didn’t help in removing it all! I also had a slightly different problem with removing wallpaper – the previous owners had used vinyl wallpaper, which when steamed stretched a lot rather than scraping off easily. It was easier to just score and scrape or peel off the paper dry, and later steam off any papery bits that were left on the wall.
