House Painting Tools – Good Tools Make a Big Difference

Purchasing professional quality house painting tools is one of the most important investments you will make as you participate in more painting projects. Professional quality tools will save time and considerable effort when compared to cheaper alternatives.

With the right set of tools it is possible to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to finish your house painting project. Good tools help guarantee great results. Using inferior and cheap painting tools will provide endless hours of frustration. Plus, they will need replacing soon after they are used. If cared for properly, quality tools will last a lifetime.

Tools needed for house painting can be separated into a couple of categories;

(1) preparation and (2) application. You may already have some of the painting tools needed and some will need to be purchased.

A basic painters tool kit consist of hand tools, screw drivers and pliers, a 5-way or 11-in-1 multipurpose tool, putty knifes, both stiff and flexible, a couple of spackling knifes, drop cloths, brushes and a roller set-up. The amount of tools you need depends on your project. The more the better, I’m a big fan of tools. It’s better to work smarter than work harder.

All of these house painting tools and more will save you a lot of time and additional effort. Also many are suitable for interior or exterior projects. Choose top quality painting tools, combine this with knowledge and you are half way to a beautiful home you can be proud of.
