Unlike animals, humans have an amazing taste for colours. Since most manmade structures such as houses are made of material that lacks colour that may appeal to the human eye, painting becomes very necessary to give our environment a visually appealing look. A plain white colour may give you the perfect finish, though it deprives you the beauty presented by a wide array of colours for house paint.

There are a various types of paints for different types of surfaces. The primary types are water-based and oil-based paints. Water-based paints have historically been used for interior use such as on walls and ceilings. Recently, water-based formulas have found their way to exterior use especially the high performance acrylics that give excellent finishes for all types of surfaces including metallic and wooden. Thus, your Roof Paint may just be a concoction of water-based formulas that will give an excellent finish just like oil-based paints.

The advantage of water-based formulas is that they are cleaner and possess fewer odours. They are appropriate for a green environment use and paint brushes used in those only need to be rinsed clean with water.

Oil-based paints apply on surfaces that require a hard and resilient finish. They serve a solid purpose on both exterior and interior surfaces in woodwork, masonry, furniture etc. On the other hand, metal paint is a cost effective solution that prevents damage of metal parts. The paint dries very quickly and may be applied to surfaces using a brush or a pump machine.

When selecting your metal paints, you may want to consider the typical surface temperature of any material you which to paint such as radiators, metallic chimneys, boilers etc. This is the temperature your metal paint can withstand without deteriorating or loosing quality. Water proofing paints also play an important role in preventing water leakages through surfaces.

Tips- essential preparations to paint your house

You do not need to be a professional painter to work out an excellent paint work at home. However, many home owners choose to hire experts for the best paint finishes on both interior and exterior surfaces. Thus, you may also need to hire an expert for your roof paint or waterproofing tasks.

Whichever way you choose to go about it, there are a number of things you should accomplish in preparation for painting tasks at home. Start with covering objects in the interior room from any paint or dust that may gather around. Move all big objects to the centre of the room to leave adequate space for painting of the walls. Place dust sheets over the edges of a room to protect the floor surface from paint drip while working on the walls and ceiling. Remember to cover electrical switches and sockets with the masking tape to protect them from paint stains.

Your paint expert may help a lot in this regard especially if you do not have the right idea of how to go about with painting your house. You may consult with an interior design firm that will shed some light on the appropriate types of paints and colours that may offer the best paint finish.
