Wallpaper has a lengthy history in interior design, but the basic principle is to cover a wall with decorative paper. Wallpaper was a popular decoration in homes built in the decades after World War Two, but, these days, more homeowners prefer painted walls over wallpaper patterns.
If you'd like painted walls but currently have wallpaper, that wallpaper will need to be removed before painting can occur. Wallpaper removal involves using a special tool to perforate the wallpaper, applying a soap solution to loosen the wallpaper, and then using putty knives to remove the paper in sections. After wallpaper has been removed, the wall will need cleaned with hot water to remove any remaining adhesive the paper has left behind.
Wallpaper removal can be a lengthy process, and, for especially tough sections of the paper, very difficult to remove.
If you need your wallpaper removed so you can have your walls painted, call a Sears Handyman professional. Our staff has the expertise and tools to remove your wallpaper and prep your walls for painting. Once you have the wallpaper removed, you may need help with wall painting, too - our technicians can assist with that as well.
Interior home painting can revitalize entire rooms by giving them an updated look. Whether you want to have one room painted or the whole house, interior painting helps improve the look and feel in every room.
Not only does painting update your home's appearance, it also refreshes a home's interior - new coats of paint can help mask any odors that have been absorbed in the walls, odors like smoke fumes or food smells.
Painting a home can be a lengthy and difficult process, requiring moving furniture; laying plastic; taping corners, doorways, and ceilings; and applying the coats of paint. Painting can also involve mounting ladders to reach high walls and ceilings, a task that many homeowners find difficult.
When you need painting assistance from experienced handyman professionals, you can count on the service professionals from Sears Handyman Services. Our staff will do the hard work of applying your chosen paints to your walls so they look great. We'll have no trouble getting on ladders and using extendable rollers to get those tough areas, too.
And for renters, if you need an apartment painted to prepare for new tenants or simply to refresh an apartment, our staff can handle that as well.
Painting the exterior of your home can dynamically revive your home's outer appearance, making it look great from the street. If your exterior paint has chips or cracks, your whole home's appearance suffers as a result. Don't let your home appear old and weathered - painting your home will revitalize its whole look.
Painting the exterior of your home is no small task, but doing so can take years off the appearance of your house, improving not only the look but potentially the value as well. Exterior home painting done correctly takes time, effort, and the proper tools. First, the exterior will need to be cleaned, usually with a pressure washer. For wood exteriors, surfaces sometimes need to be scraped and sanded and any holes and imperfections patched. Other surfaces, like steel or concrete, will require their own pre-treatment.
Next, primer will need to be applied to all surfaces. Priming prepares the home to be painted by reducing the previous paint color on the exterior, masking stains and discolorations, and preventing your top coat of paint from peeling or growing mildew.
Once the exterior is primed, it's time for the painting. Professionals need to apply paint evenly and in multiple layers to ensure it appears smooth. Painters need to paint ceilings first and then proceed with the walls, and then windows, doors, and shudders. It's also important that painters use good technique while painting, and using rollers and brushes to apply the paint evenly can be difficult, especially in hard-to-reach places.
For complex and demanding exterior paint jobs, you can call on Sears Handyman Services. Our service technicians have painted countless homes, both inside and out. They're used to working on ladders and utilizing professional painting equipment. We'll be sure to follow the best painting practices, ensuring the siding has been cleaned and primed so the paint dries as it should and looks great once the job is done.
