Which Types of Materials are Used by Professional Painters?

Professional painters have a diverse collection of tools of their trade. In order to complete their painting jobs, each one of these tools is necessary and leaves the customer with a finished project that they can’t help but love. Many of these materials are specific to the nature of the painting projects, but it is important to note that many if not all of the following materials are important to commercial painting companies.

Flora Brothers Painting uses the following materials to complete their painting projects:

* Stepladder or extension ladder: to aid the painter in reaching the higher surfaces in a residence

* Paint scraper: to remove loose or peeling paint from walls, a triangular-load scraper can be used to remove paint in small or tight areas

* Bristle brush: to clear loose material from masonry

* Wire brush: to remove efflorescence and other loose materials from masonry or to remove loose and flaking paint

* Long-handled brush: to clean large exterior surfaces of dust and dirt

* Putty knife or broad putty knife: the prior is used to scrape away loose paint and apply filler, while the latter is used to fill in and smooth patching in plaster and wallboard.

* Spackling paste: to fill in nail holes or other imperfections in walls

* Sandpaper, of varying grits: to smooth down previously painted surfaces or to roughen up a smoother or glossier surface to ease paint adherence

* Masking tape: to protect windows and trims from paint and to create a distinction between walls that are not being painted a particular color

* Paint guide: serves a similar purpose to masking tape, but protects floors and walls when painting trims

* Roller tray and grid: to load paint rollers with paint

* Paint pail: to mix paint and carry it to the work site

* Drop cloths: to protect furniture, floors, and shrubbery (for outdoor jobs) from paint
