Pets and Painting

Pet lovers need to make a plan for their pets during the painting process. It’s hard enough for homeowners to remember to take precautions with paint products and not touch, lean on or brush up against wet paint. Your pets will probably not get the concept when they are used to wandering the house freely.

One of the best ways to take care of pets is for you to take them off site and have the pros take care of the painting efficiently so you can get your pets back to their normal routine as soon as possible.

Brick and Mortar

Painting masonry is not for the casual painter. If painting is prep, even more so for painting brick and block surfaces. And specialized product, you’re gonna need the right stuff.

Wire brushing is a good start. Then a shop vac and a degreaser. Don’t forget drop cloth and masking tape, which is not easy to do along the uneven edges.

Prime with Sherwin-Williams’ Loxon Concrete & Masonry Primer starting with a brush in the mortar lines. A roller is probably the best tool for the surface. Finish with ProClassic Waterborne Interior Acrylic Enamel of your color choice.

Blue Paint Colors

According to Sherwin-Williams, blue is “by far the most popular color family, blue paint is traditional and conservative in its darker tones and becomes breezy and cool when you add white. Blue colors are known to have calming effects when lighter versions are used so it is perfect for a space where you want to retreat and relax. Blue can also be energetic when bright tones are used and contrasted with white or yellow. Blue paint used alone is usually not the best color for a kitchen but in any other space you can make it work.”
