 Condo and Apartment  Interior Painting
Condominiums comprise a huge portion of residential dwellings in the Greater Toronto Area, particularly in the boroughs of Mississauga and Richmond Hill. Every day, there are a lot more condo buildings being built. This is why condo painting and apartment painting are huge businesses in the Toronto, Ontario area. Every condo and apartment building has hundreds of residential units. This would be impossible for one painting contractor to work on; thus, one can assume that there are many condo painters that cater to the needs of the condo owner.

 

 Detached Residential Homes Versus Apartment and Condo Painting
Apartment and condo  interior painting are almost the same as painting single detached residential dwellings. However, there are certain procedures and rules a condo paint contractor has to follow in each apartment complex. Regulations like specific working hours, parking rules, minimizing of noise disruptions, specific load guidelines, and coordination with service elevators vary from one establishment to another.
Condo painting contractors are normally respectful of every condo complex’s rules to make sure that the job is done right, with minimal disruption, and in good time. Aside from the interior of apartments and condominiums, these condo painters can also paint condos’ exterior areas.

 

 Why Hire a Condo Painting Contractor For your interior painting?

Why must one avail of condo painting services? A good paint job can give an instant makeover to the place. A paint job can make ceilings look higher and small rooms a lot bigger. Light and bright colours can attract natural light and make windowed rooms even look more airy and larger. While neutral colours like beige and light grey can improve the place, homeowners have a lot of choices as the list of paint colours is endless.
Availing of condo painting means low cost to the occupant and low risk for the landlord. Painted condo walls are also low-maintenance as the walls are easier to wipe down after scuffs and spills (This is not to say there is no paint on the walls but the quality of the paint that is on the walls is probably so cheap it will wash off). A good paint job can also help reduce dust and dirt in the rooms. This greatly improves the air quality in the condo for healthier air for the occupants of the condo.
Moreover, a fresh condo paint raises the unit’s property value (obviously if you own it). A fresh condo painting job is one of the easiest, cheapest, and fastest ways to make the condo ready for selling. Bright and fresh colors can be inviting and can raise its aesthetic appeal. The colors can also make the condo look cleaner, newer, and generally worth the money. There is also no problem hiring the right condo painter as there are many Toronto  painters.

Hardwood floor refinishing in Toronto

 Hardwood Floor
Just Finishing up Hardwood Floor

just completed at Don Mills and Eglinton in Toronto some oak hardwood floor refinishing this condo was a one bedroom plus den and two bathrooms the master bedroom and bathroom had carpet and ceramic floors. The kitchen area had ceramic floor so the remainder was a living dining area and a den that had medium walnut hardwood floor stain.

Fortunately the condo was empty the new homeowner just purchased it and was ready to do some upgrades and painting and of course the refinishing of the floor. Since this floor was in fairly good condition all the owner wanted to do was to freshen it up. Freshening up is not the same as redoing a hardwood floor. First of all the floor has to be screened (lightly sanded/buffed) what this does it removes the shine which prevents the top coat of urethane to adhere to the floor. Whenever re-coating an existing hardwood floor it is always wise to make sure that it is free of wax and oils. And for this reason we always use a varsol or degreaser to make sure that the floor is ready for urethane. You start by cleaning the floor down with a wet rag dampened with varsol enough to wet the floor and dissolve the grease or wax and then afterwards dry then afterwards wipe it the dry.

Now you’re ready to screen/sand the floor. We generally use about a 150 grit or 180 grit sand paper or screen mesh with a floor buffer. Start the buffer and immediately start moving it to make sure that you are not idle in one spot for too long otherwise you will end up sanding into the stain which will always lay ruined the job. Floor buffer is a tricky apparatus. It does a beautiful job but you have to have some experience in operating it because it could end up doing damage.

Go over the floor slowly lengthwise with the boards at a slow even pace and watch how well and what the screening action does. If it doesn’t look like it’s doing it off slow down if is doing too much speed up are you looking for is a dull surface finish on the wood. Is this dull finish that you’re aiming for so that the finish coat will stick to this.

Now it is time to clean all the sanding off the floor. We usually use a good quality commercial vacuum cleaner with a good brush head that will be able to brush out and suck up all the dust off the floor planks and in between the groups getting everything nice and dust free.

It is optional if you want to tack cloth the floor with a damp with a little varsol or paint thinner to attract the dust. You will have to occasionally turn the red around to collect more dust.

Apply three or four coats at the right drying intervals to get that full rich look. Read the manufacturer’s directions they may very. The more coats of urethane you apply, the deeper and better the floor will look.

Sherwin-Williams paint sale

Weekend you can buy any Sherwin-Williams premium paints at 40% off. These are great paints and they cover well and easy to paint with. They come in a variety of different sheen levels from flat and satin all the way to gloss finishes.

For the nice soft subtle look in a bedroom it is advisable to use a satin paint finish. This gives the room a warm feeling. This paint is also washable and touchable not leaving any paint marks from your brush or roller.

This paint has a very low odor and is good on the VOC. Sherwin-Williams paint colors are immense you can get any color you want in any shine level you want for anywhere you want. Make anything from your living room – dining room – hallway – kitchen – washroom – bedrooms.

They also make a great kitchen cabinets paint that you can also use on doors and baseboards and Windows. It is a tough enamel paint that resists scratching and ware.

In my opinion as a professional painting contractor Sherwin-Williams paints is considered to be the highest quality paint that a homeowner can purchase. It far exceeds any Behr paint from Home Depot and other paints from places like Rona, Lowe’s and Canadian tire. These companies I find their paints inadequate low on quality and performance. Even if you do the painting your self you’re much better off buying in this top line paint because your paint job will it be easier to do and look better even if you paid a little extra money for purchasing the paint.

Most probably you are not a professional toronto painter reading this article, you are a homeowner that is looking into possibly painting a room or your entire house. You might be doing some interior painting or you’re looking for Exterior Painting.

Tips Painting

will cover such things as, types and brands of paints, painting processes, painting tools and every day small helpful hints learned through experience in house painting.

 

Like the saying goes “You Only Get What You Pay for” this applies to interior latex paints for homes, exterior latex paints for residential use and even specialty commercial painting paint.

 

Residential paints comes in all grades from the lowest and cheapest paint (when you do a quick and dirty paint job) to a top line high quality premium latex paint.

When you are the one that is painting and you’re given the two different types of paint and asked to paint the section of wall with both paints and compare you will notice quite a difference.

First you will start using the start using the cheap low-priced paint, you will find this paint first of all not to apply very smoothly and evenly. The paint will slightly drag as you pull the brush along the wall. You might even notice that when you go past a spot with your brush that you didn’t completely cover the spot you passed over. You might have to go back over again with your paintbrush one more time to make sure the paint brush cutting was covering the wall properly. If you’re trying to do a very fine crisp and even, straight-line you might even notice that your paint sort of rolls up in a ball in front of your brush causing blotchy painting as you pass your brush at the wall and ceiling.

Moving on to using the paint roller, you might notice a few different things when you’re using an inexpensive cheap latex paint. Some low line cheap inexpensive latex paints might be to too thin texture or on the other hand might be to thick and hard to paint roll with. Sometimes the paint does go on properly but after it has dried you can see right through the paint and you will need additional coats of paint to make a good job of the painting.

So as you can see when you’re using a cheap low quality economical latex paint you will have to paint more times than needed and possibly still not get the look you’re looking for.

 

High quality premium latex paints such as Benjamin Moore Or Sherwin Williams are the main choices of latex paints by professional painting contractor in toronto. Toronto painters always recommend using Benjamin Moore paints for two reasons: they have a lot of top line paint stores throughout the GTA (Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Richmond Hill, Scarborough). Sherwin-Williams doesn’t have as many stores and are harder to find a location nearest the paint job. Both of these paint manufacturers have almost the same pricing on their paints. They both make high quality paint products.

 

Now, will compare the top line latex paint on a wall. You will see as soon as you dip your paintbrush into the paint can, the paint will look more like ink as compared to paste. When you start using your brush cutting along the wall at the ceiling you’ll notice that as the brush moves along it leaves a fine thin crisp line. You will also notice that wherever your paintbrush passed over the wall was painted evenly and properly not make you go over it again to make sure that it covers. Likewise when you’re using the paint roller you’ll also notice that the top line paints roll over smoother and quicker just like if your roller had ball bearings in it. You will also notice that wherever the paint roller had rolled over the wall had changed color properly without seeing through the paint.

 

As you can see the advantages of using top line paint as opposed to bottom-line paint, there is more work involved in trying to make the cheaper paint look good.

Another advantage of using the top line paint is that it is fade resistant, and in most cases is also washable.

Bedroom Painting: Why painting matters

Bedroom painting

There is nothing like walking into a freshly painted bedroom. It gives you the same feeling as if you’re walking into a very nice hotel room. You look around with excitement and feeling of being in a different place.

Something as simple as a freshly painted bedroom which you might have been looking at for years and years and thinking about changing something to make it look different.

For example I just repainted our bedroom after my wife had complained that she needed to change in her life. Believe it or not that made her feel better overall because it gave her a sense of something new in her life. It was the same old bedroom but with a new paint job. The colors that were on our walls in our bedroom were sort of a rosy color slightly on the darker side with a billiard green paisley border. This was nice at the time but it’s dated.

Going from a mid tone wall to a brighter off-white and in this case the wall was a mixture of yellow and gray but very light so it seemed like a faded cement type color. This type of color reflects light very well and gives the living space a more open look and feel while contrasting to the white trim work such as the window frame and the doorframe. The trim work should be a super white to make a good enough contrast to make it pop.

The room before when you turn the light on at nighttime obviously lit the room but with the new paint job it really illuminated the room almost like we put a more powerful lightbulb in there.

Next there will be a crown molding installed which I will do when I feel like it. This will give the room some more interior decoration. Something like hanging more pictures but there is not that much empty space on the walls to be able to place pictures without making the wall looking crowded. But adding the crown molding is a subtle enhancement to the looks of the room. This is will be on my next project fixing up the bedroom.

A typical building in Havana, Cuba, is beautiful but in need of paint. It may seem insignificant, but paint does more to brighten our hearts than any other single building feature.Painting is about empowering spaces and structures so they make us feel good, says home improvement expert Steve Maxwell.

7 Tips on Getting a Cheaper Price From Your Painter

How To Get Cheap Paint Jobs

Toronto House Painting Company

tries lower your house painting costs with a few special painting offers for cheaper painting jobs.

The biggest cost saver in painting a house or room is the amount of time spent preparing to paint the room. There are different ways of trying to save money and make it easier for the painter to do his job.

Obviously the first thing is if the room could be empty completely just leaving the bare walls. This is a great timesaver because truly the only time spent in this room would be strictly for painting. Generally painting an average size bedroom would take about three hours for two coats of paint.

Empty House

If the entire home is empty there could be a great savings for the homeowner. This would be the same as painting a new home empty of any furnishings.

Another house painting cost saving tips is trying to schedule the paint job on the off-season where the painter is not as busy because of having to also schedule into their busy schedule exterior paint jobs. Most people for some reason want to do their inter-house painting in the summer. This could be due to a number of reasons such as having the windows open to ventilate paint fumes, the painting project will coincide with the vacation, there is more daylight.

Same paint can: material and color.

This is a great timesaver because it would save the time of changing over paint cans two different colors and cleaning brushes and rollers. If a house has four bedrooms and each bedroom has a different paint color there is a good chance that it would take about 15 or 20 minutes to change over to the next paint. The paint tray has to be cleaned out and rollers and brushes have to be also cleaned out so they do not contaminate the next paint color.

Closet Painting

And other money-saving tactic is not to paint the closets because it takes a longer period of time proportionally to paint the closet than it does the paint four walls in an empty room.

Remove Wallpaper

If the home has wallpaper installed on any rooms or hallways it is best to have the homeowner remove the paper because it is a time-consuming process which will eat up a lot of the paint budget. Removing the wallpaper in some cases might be difficult where the homeowner could not remove it. But in other cases the wallpaper has been installed professionally make it easy to be removed at a later date.

Wall Repair

Wall preparation, should really be done by the painter to ensure good quality painting work in the end. But if there are some rough wall repairs to be done, again not really the scope of a painting contractor they should be done prior to the regular house painting procedure. Small holes and cracks are easily and normally a part of wall painting but anything larger than that should be taken care of prior to painting to save money.

 

Another great painting savings tip would be to paint the entire house the same colo

Spend less on paint. Buy the expensive stuff.

We always  thought for a while we would make more money by using cheap paint by saving on the paint. But it didn’t take long to figure out that we are wasting time and money on cheap paint.

Cheap inexpensive paint is watery and does not cover well. Obviously this is because they do not put any quality additives. And it is the additives that cost in a can of paint. The additives help spread rate of the paint and the coverage the paint has and of course the quality of the dried product its resistance to wear, sunlight and washing.

When a house painter is using cheap paint he will have to paint the house or room with an extra few coats of paint for it to cover and work well. And if that is the case the extra material bought will make up for the difference buying a more expensive brand of paint such as Benjamin Moore regal or the Sherwin-Williams emerald line or even the Pittsburgh Manor Hall line. These are high quality professional paints.

Not to mention that using the higher-end paints are also to be honest with you much easier to paint with. When you pass over a area with the paintbrush for example 90% coverage over the area you’re going over and when you bring to your brush back smoothing out the paint you will get the other 10% coverage and this is excellent and what the painters looking for which is efficiency for either the brush or roller. But when you have a cheap paint you might have to go over the same spot a couple times for it to cover properly and even so it might not.

There is not a whole heck of a lot of difference between a cheap/inexpensive paint compared to the top line quality interior paint. For example you might buy a can of Behr paint from Home Depot for $45 which is not half as good as Benjamin Moore regal paint which is approximately $60. Torontopainters find that using the Home Depot Behr paint it ends up sagging and you have to work it a couple times to make sure that it lays flat without drips or drops.

Good-quality paint lasts longer and works out cheaper over time … not to mention the fact that it is easy to apply and looks great! Look at your local hardware store for mistints — the term refers to perfectly good paint which was tinted to order, but turned out not to be the color the original customer had in mind. It’s subsequently sold for a fraction of sticker price. If you’re planning to paint two or more rooms, choose a neutral hue and invest in a 5-gallon container (it’s cheaper than purchasing five individual gallon cans). Or check in with your local recycling and hazardous household waste center to see whether they have any unwanted paint to give away. And don’t forget to prime; primer is relatively inexpensive and will make your pricy paint go much further. Whatever amount you spend, be sure to use low- to no-VOC paint, for the sake of your indoor air quality.

   Home Decorating Tips

home decorating tips
Home decorating tips kept simple and basic nothing too fancy.

Home decorating tips: must not be an exhaustive task for you.  In fact, it should be a relaxing experience – a therapeutic task if you allow it to be.  Make use of the opportunity as a creative outlet.  However, there are times when you tend to go overboard and the design ends up an eyesore.  Here are some of the things that you can do and some things that you need to avoid in your interior decorating project:

Familiarize yourself with the floor plan.  Make sure that you have the correct dimensions of the room, the windows, and doors.  Take into consideration the placement of your would-be furniture so they do not block out electrical outlets or hamper the traffic in your house.  Never forget to take this floor plan with you when you go shopping.

Know your taste and style.  It is important that you arm yourself with a bit of information on how you could incorporate your personal style as you decorate your home.  You can start by looking at magazines and attending an open house to give you an idea.

House decorating ideas: should allow you to mix and match your decorations with your furniture and the overall look of your house.  It is important that know what paint colors would go best with your furniture and vice versa.

If you are working on a certain theme, keep this in mind when you go shop so that you do not go on a buying spree.  You should practice restraint and keep with the essentials first.  This would ensure that you do not add more clutter in your house.

When buying a decorative piece, it should be something that you could talk about when friends ask you about it.  It should not be something that you’d say you bought in a store because it looks nice.

Always consider the function of the room.  Remember, form follows function.

Interior Painting decorating need not be expensive.  You can opt to have do-it-yourself decors.

Furniture should be of high quality because it is something that you would use most of the time.  However, it would be best if you would mix expensive items with modest goods so they do not look pretentiously sticking out across a room.

One consequence of home decorating is that sometimes it becomes too personal that everything in the house reflects who you are.  This may pose a difficulty when friends would visit you.  It is best if you could keep personal items in areas that are private, like your room or your den.

It is alright if you want to design your home according to an existing design trend but you need to keep in mind that this trend may become obsolete in a few years time.  If you want, you can apply this trend in one area of your house while keeping the rest of the house in a timeless design.

House decorating does not have fast and steadfast rules but sometimes it is still best to follow the basics.
