Anyone that has ever painted their home’s interior has likely encountered streaky finishes in at least one spot. There are numerous reasons this happens, but they can all be avoided with the right amount of experience and tools.
Understanding Streak-Free Paint
If you’re looking for the simple answer as to how professional painters get a streak-free finish, you won’t find it. Painting is a complicated subject – you could say that it is more of an art than a science. At Steven’s Perfect Paint, our painters employ a number of tools and tricks that help them to leave you with the stunning walls you envisioned when first selecting your color scheme, not the streaky one-coat DIY look you’re used to from home painting.
When it is time for you to paint your house, you take a trip to the hardware store to begrudgingly buy paint, rollers, brushes, bins, tape, mixers, drop cloths, and maybe even some clothes or shoes to wear during the task. Obviously, a professional painter doesn’t need to buy these things each and every time they paint a home. Because of this, the pros can have a much more robust, well-rounded assortment of equipment to paint under any circumstance; while you have one roller and a couple of brushes, they have specialty, industry-standard tools. Beyond even having guns that make evenly applying paint in a wide area easy, your painter will have (and know when to use) the right brush or roller for all of your home’s nooks and crannies.
When you go to a hardware or paint store, you stumble through the choices. After picking out a color or two, you’ll be asked to choose from five different paint brands in twelve different glosses, then tasked with deciding if you need just paint, paint and primer, or a paint/primer mix, all while attempting to price shop and avoid paying out the nose for halfway-decent paint. When you work with a professional painter, they not only know and understand what type or paint/primer mix your home will need at a glance, but they also get access to bulk pricing on the highest quality paints and mixes. In general, better paint means a much better finished product; were you to buy the same paint as our painters would use in your home, you’d likely spend close to what it would cost to just hire them to put it on the wall for you.
At the end of the day, you aren’t just hiring a professional painter for their tools or access to great paint, but for the experience that comes with having produced amazing results for homeowners across Brooklyn. When you contact Steven’s Perfect Paint, you can rest assured that you’re working with the finest in affordable Brooklyn painters, all of which are backed by training and experience that is founded on a track record of local excellence.
