Painting your home.

Painting a home by hand may seem like an archaic art, what with so many technological advances in home improvement.

There are pneumatic paint sprayers with auto feeds that can paint the house by themselves practically, but are they really worth it? Although, there is no doubt that spray painting saves time, there are many benefits to painting your home by hand.

Details

Though paint sprayer can cover a huge area of the house with just a single pass, but you can’t count on a sprayer for help when it comes to detail work.

You will still need to paint edges, borders and some other fine and delicate work by hand. This will keep the paint from hitting the trim and other places that you don’t want to paint.

Less Mess

The high pressure spray of paint can make a much more bigger mess than a paint roller. With rollers and paint brushes, you only need tape and tarps to be applied to the immediate areas.

When you are dealing with a paint sprayer, however, the paint can quickly build in one spot and then lead to a river of paint flowing down to the tarp.

Save Money On Paint

When you are planning on painting a house, you will be needing a lot of paint. Even small homes can use several five gallon buckets and it can be expensive, depending on the brand and type of paint you are using.

With a paint sprayer, it is easy to waste paint, even though it will provide a nice even coverage.
Painting by hand will let you have more control over the amount of paint you use.

Save Time

The whole point of a sprayer is to get the job done faster which is why they are used so often in commercial and industrial settings.

However, you are not painting the inside of a parking structure, this is your home, and to get the smooth, seamless coverage you want, and also to even out the paint, you are still going to have to follow the sprayer with a brush in order to create a professional look you can be proud of.

You may do a first coat with the sprayer and then a second with a brush but that will mean two different methods of prep with two different methods of cleanup, which will surely slow you down in the long run.
