Stress levels are at a all time high. Especially this time of the year. The approaching holiday season. Reducing stress is easier then you think.
There is an endless list of suggestions online on how to lessen your stress. Something I find helpful is being organized. Basic organization is a business must. Stacks of clutter like bills, mail, receipts, etc are stressful.
Exterior painting this time of year can be tricky in Omaha. We have wide temperature fluctuations. One day in the upper 50’s the next in the 20’s. Complicating the matter is the drop in temperatures at night. Many manufactures these days make exterior paint that is considered “low temp”. Suitable for fall painting or use in lower temperatures. When these products first came out they were marketed as low temp paint. Now many of the exterior paints available from major manufactures are automatically “low temp” products so you need not specify that you need a low temperature paint.
Painting wood paneling is not difficult. With a little extra prep work wood paneling can be painted and transformed into a more appealing surface.
Wood paneling is not as common as it once was but it’s still in many homes. If it is in yours and you don’t want the expense of ripping it out and installing drywall, consider painting it. To do it right call The Painting Company or follow these steps to do it yourself. You will need the same equipment you would need to paint any room. In addition you will need a quality bonding primer, caulk and caulk gun, sanding pole and sandpaper.
Halloween season is here. It is time to finish up your exterior painting. Unfortunately, many tricks lay waiting for you with peeling and flaking paint, wrinkling, cracked, and blistering paint. It is possible to do the job right, giving you the treat of a great paint job for years to come. Here are four expert painting tips to avoid a scary paint job.
Using ladders can be risky. If you climb ladders long enough you will eventually get hurt. I’ve fallen twice. Once because of uneven ground and once because of an unstable base; decorative rocks. The first fall I was in my early twenties and bounced right back but the second I was in my fifties and still feel it.
While most rooms have some sort of closet, there is so little conversation about what color to paint these useful spaces. Since they each have varying degrees of visibility, there are many different options to consider with color choices. While there are no rules for these areas, here are some general guidelines you can consider for the closets in your home.
CyberSecurity is admittedly a strange subject for this website but it affects all of us. Consumers and business owners alike. When I developed this website for The Painting Company I installed several plugins that monitor activity. One of the plugins showed every “hit” on my website in real time. I was shocked. Thousands of attempts to access the backside or hack this website occur every day. My response was to install security programs and for many weeks I would watch the activity and personally block ip addresses attempting access. The whole process was an eye opener.
The number one question I am consistently asked is why painters wear white (which is answered here in another blog post). The number two question is what paint brands I use or would recommend. Everybody has their favorite. I have used many brands over the years and realize what consumers are facing when deciding what to use. We all want the best product for the least price. Some people put a higher priority on price then quality, some people the other way around.
