Do You Need to Hire an Experienced Painting Service Provider to Cover Wall Imperfections?

Five star Painting ServiceIf you have to deal with interior wall flaws which cannot be simply covered with an additional paint layer, you will most probably have to turn to a skillful and well-equipped painting service provider for help. There are many wall covering styles imitating weathered or stucco look which may be applied in your case. If you want to achieve any of these wall effects, texture painting will allow you to do it with ease.

There are special paints which are manufactured with the idea of being used for texture work. They are much thicker than other types of paint. In fact, they look a lot like wet plaster which should not bother you at all. Some paints are even gritty, it depends who manufactures them.
The greatest benefits of using such paint is that you will not have to smooth the painted surface perfectly. These camouflage paints look more natural and are mainly used for creating rustic home designs.
In order to apply such paint without help from a painting service expert, you will have to purchase special texture rollers, urethane foam brush, and another brush which should be much wider than the common ones in order to apply granule-free textured paint. In some cases, you may also have to get a trowel.
No matter which tool you have chosen for the paint application, you need to smear the paint onto the wall about 1/16 inch thick. You should think more local than global – start piece by piece, and do not move to the next area that you want to paint before you have finished the first one. You need to do this in order to make sure that you can texture and design the surface well.

If creating little peaks and valleys with textured paint to turn your interior walls into a rustic masterpiece is not something that you believe you will be able to handle yourself, we strongly recommend you to seek professional help. Fixing any mistakes that you have done while doing DIY painting will cost you much more than if you have booked a painting service in first place. Call RBP Painting & Maintenance of Tallahassee, FL, and we can set you up with a premium painting appointment right away!
