Good interior painting contractors take care to protect surfaces and belongings that are not to be painted. This includes masking and taping all light fixtures, hardware, electrical plates and light switch plates. Door knobs, towel racks, baseboards and other objects are usually removed so that the walls behind them are completely painted. Drop cloths are usually carefully arranged to protect unmovable furniture or flooring. The best contractors will also remove old wallpaper or flaking paint and fill in nail holes and wall damage before beginning to paint. Exterior paint is more durable to stand up to weather and the fading effects of the sun. It also must remain flexible to resist peeling and cracking as a result of temperature changes. Some exterior paints have mildew preventers and fungus resistant additives, while others have UV resistant coatings that help them last longer than traditional exterior paints.
Painting Tip! Sometimes your painting company will leave you with extra paint leftover from your trim painting project. Use it to touch up major nicks and dings to prolong the life of your trim.
Most experts will advise that you to paint your exterior walls every 5-10 years, depending on climate, previous paint job, and other factors that we will discuss later on.

Older homes often have surfaces that newer homes don’t. Plaster walls, exposed brick, wood paneling and exterior architectural blocks are common in older homes. Using the right paint and tools on these surfaces (plus the right paint and tools for the room itself) is important to ensure the longevity of the project.
You’re likely excited to pick a color and see your room come to life, but like all of our paint advice, we want you to always consider prep first. An older home usually requires a different approach to prep than a newer home.
After three-plus decades of living and working in the Bay Area, Greg’s initial appreciation of the climate and people hasn’t dwindled a bit. He also enjoys taking advantage of the activities offered by the local topography. “I love hiking, waterskiing and rock climbing,” he says. “One of my favorite things is going to Zion National Park and doing some free climbing. Climbing a couple hundred feet without ropes is quite a thrill—it’s almost the same as getting up on a 40-foot ladder to paint a house!” When he’s not scaling a ladder or a rock face, Greg enjoys spending time with his two children, 19-year-old Monica and 16-year-old Adam.
