A common question homeowners ask is what they can do to improve their home for the least amount of money. Although there are a lot of good answers to that question, one great way to make the biggest impact for a low cost is to apply a fresh coat of paint. Whether you’re going to paint an entirely different color or just apply a new layer, the end result is definitely one of the home projects where you get the most bang for your buck. You’re making a big change with minimal investment.
Now that you have that answer, it’s important to know what paint equipment you need to buy or rent for a painting project. If you’ll be painting exterior walls, you definitely want to get a pressure washer, so you can thoroughly clean the walls before painting them.
The paint equipment that is most important for really helping you on this project is something called an airless sprayer. This allows you to spray the paint onto your walls. Using a tool that allows you to evenly spray your walls will greatly speed up the process. An added benefit is that is will also look professional if you use the correct equipment for the job.
Another important purchase for this project is an obvious one: the paint. Many people think this is where they should save a few dollars. However, our advice is that you get what you pay for, and the last thing you want to do is spend all the time and money to re-paint and then have to re-do it again soon because you used a cheap paint.
Getting the best paint equipment will make all the difference in how simple a painting project will end up being for you. Make sure you let the equipment do a lot of the work for you!
