Touch-up Paint

Feathering is the final key to a good touch up job.

I doesn’t take long before feet, furniture, fur babies and family members get some scuffs going on your painted walls. Not everything washes off which is why touch-up is an important way to keep your walls in the best possible condition.

The Right Paint

The most important aspect of touchup is to use the same type, color and sheen of paint. Paint Doctor’s Painting leaves building owners with extra of each paint color. Be sure to thoroughly stir the paint before using.

Tools and Techniques

Whenever possible, “use the same tool to apply the touch-up paint as was used to apply the original coat,” according to Sherwin-Williams. With practice, you can use a good quality paint brush to do most touch-ups by loading the brush and making as few passes over the target area as possible – just enough to smooth it reasonably well. Quality paint will self-level if you don’t overwork it.

Feathering

Feathering is the final key to a good touch up job. As the brush gets dryer, lightly move it away from the repair area out over the larger surrounding area. The further away you get from the center, less paint is being applied. This eliminates a hard edge where the new paint stops abruptly. The area surrounding the repair will have a mix of the existing paint and the touch-up paint which creates a blend.

Cleanup

Remember to carefully reseal your touch-up paint container and thoroughly clean your paint brush. Try to keep kids and pets away from the touch-up area until the paint is dry to touch.

Call the Doctor

When you hire the pros at Paint Doctor’s Painting, you get an entire crew doing all of those difficult painting operations at once with the speed and accuracy that comes with doing the job right the first time every time.

Paint Doctor’s Painting would love to transform your interior spaces with the color of your choosing or give some new curb appeal to your exterior. Call Mike at 541-497-3804.
When you consider the amount of time involved in doing your own paint project compared to hiring the Doctor, we think you will agree. Many property owners significantly underestimate what it takes to wash, prep, caulk, fill, sand, scrape, mask, pack, place, climb, spray, roll, brush, move and do it all again.
However, when you hire the pros at Paint Doctor’s Painting, you get an entire crew that is doing all of these operations at once with the speed and accuracy that comes with doing the job right the first time every day. Rather than having your house in that paint-job-in-process mode for weeks, you can have the whole job completed in a day or two.
Consider also the safety factor. We have the equipment and knowledge to do the job safely. When you consider how each time you move a ladder and reset it you have to get it just right and even then you are climbing, reaching and working off that ladder… Better left to the pros.

Fraternity House Facelift

Sorority and fraternity house maintenance has its challenges. Much larger than most single family homes, they tend to fit somewhere between residential and commercial. Size matters when it comes to repainting because simply reaching the lofty heights of dormers and gable ends can be a real challenge. This is where Paint Doctor’s Painting comes in.
