DIY is all the rage these days and painting your own house is a great way to satisfy the need of getting something done by yourself. Using a  spray painter makes painting so much easier and gets the job done faster. Here are a few tips to make that happen.

First remove all the previous paint and dirt by  sanding it off, scraping it or using a pressure washer. Patch any small cracks, cover windows, doors and bushes around the house.

Choose your paint primer, making sure it's breathable and oil based. This will allow the moisture buildup from inside the house to escape.

Choose a colour that will go well with existing features that are not going to be painted. Dark colours will fade more quickly and need more touch up over time. Light colours will make your house appear larger. Glossy paint will show every imperfection. Make sure to test your colour in a small area first.

Two coats of  acrylic latex paint will be necessary over the primer to resist mildew. Do not paint if it is rainy or there is rain on the forecast. And make sure to practice on a piece of cardboard before spraying the house.

Make sure you allow proper time for your paint to dry. This will give staying to your paint job over the years.
