The first step is to get organized. Buy all your painting materials before the weekend, so that when it's time to get started, you won't waste time tracking down supplies. Your checklist should include paint applicators, a drop cloth, stepladder, screwdriver for removing hooks, switch plates and the like, masking tape for window edges, and of course, enough paint to complete the project. Shortcut your painting prep by spreading it out over a couple of evenings, or do it the weekend before painting. Carve out manageable bits of time to do the routine tasks such as patching and filling holes, removing grease or crayon marks -- even removing cobwebs from corners and ceilings. If your wall surfaces have mildew on them, try removing it using one part bleach in three parts water and then rinsing. Let everything sit for a couple days, so you're ready to dive in and paint on the big day. Some projects require more diligent treatment of surfaces. If you need to remove wallpaper, there are several power prep tools that can save time and elbow grease. For example, Wagner Spray Tech offers power wallpaper steamers in a variety of styles and sizes that can provide a fast, clean way to remove the paper without having to use chemicals, solvents or detergents. When it's time to start painting, consider using some of the newer products on the market that are designed to give fast, professional-looking results, such as Wagner Spray Tech's new QuickTouch electric paint rollers. Simply attach a standard gallon-sized paint can, insert the paint hose, turn the unit to "paint" mode, and you're ready to go. The rollers make it fast and easy, eliminate back-bending trips to the roller tray, and greatly reduce the potential for messy drips and spills by eliminating the need to pour paint. Choose the QuickTouch version that fits your job: The QuickTouch Power Roller package includes painting project basics, including a 12-foot hose, 14-inch extension and spatter shield for approximately Project Management Basics The Manual to Delivering Projects on Time and on Budget, When Other's Can't! Page 1 Presented by Daniel Toriola $79.99. The QuickTouch Power Roller PRO offers even more options to make bigger projects go faster, including a five gallon adapter, variable speed control, a built-in carrying handle, 18-inch extension cord and a trim pad, for approximately $119.99. If you've got an especially large painting territory to cover, consider a battery-operated roller. Wagner Spray Tech makes a portable model, the 929 Variable Speed Power Roller, which can apply 20 gallons of paint (enough to cover five average-sized rooms) on one set of batteries. It's not only easy to operate, it's easy on the operator. It has an ergonomically designed handle with fingertip control, quick release for simple assembly and cleanup, and a paint distribution system that enhances the flow of paint for better coverage. At a suggested retail price of $49.00 to $59.00, it can provide fast, professional results for a relatively small investment. After your painting project is complete, clean up can be quicker than ever, too. Try rubbing protective cream onto your hands before you paint -- it'll ensure faster and easier removal of paint from your skin. To remove paint from the electric or battery powered rollers, simply insert the paint hose into a bucket of water, switch the unit to "clean" mode, let water circulate for about 10 minutes, and you're done. When your painting is complete and your tools have been tucked away for the next project, there's just one final task. Pack up your family and head for the beach -- it's the perfect place to relax while you're waiting for the paint to dry.

Page 2 Presented by Daniel Toriola Home Exterior Painting is For Professionals By Rose Ybarra Many people attempt endeavors they know they are not up for, but for some reason still find themselves drawn to the spectacle of trial and error. Many people end up screwing up their tasks more than helping them and in the end, the project or endeavor is left in worse condition than when it was begun. Realizing one’s limits and abilities is important in determining whether a task is within one’s limits. Home exterior painting is one such task that many try, and many fail. Amateurs’ efforts often end up looking like, well, amateur jobs. Many people feel that such tasks are so easily accomplished that just anybody can jump in and finish the project with some level of success. Unfortunately, many realize too late that they are not up to the task and are not really prepared to take on such lofty projects such as home exterior painting projects. Home improvement projects in general are difficult to accomplish by many ordinary homeowners with no real experience in handyman work or home repair. These homeowners should not attempt to take on the project without the proper guidance, experience or know-how. Once a skill is acquired, the homeowner feels like the can accomplish all of their home repairs themselves and do not see the need to hire outside help. While many are able to acquire skills that allow them to do just that, a greater percentage often end up failing and needing a professional contractor to bail them out. Homeowners are often too proud to admit they need outside help when tackling a complicated project such as home exterior painting. Painting one’s entire house is a huge endeavor, even for the most experienced or skilled homeowner handyman. They too often find themselves overwhelmed by the enormity of the project, but because of their skill with a brush and experience performing these projects, they are able to get through the project with some success. However, many homeowners are the farthest thing from handymen and find themselves overwhelmed by these projects as well, but are unable to complete the job with any success or satisfaction at all because of their lack of knowledge about home improvement and painting. Finding somebody such as a professional painting contractor who knows what they are doing when it comes to home exterior painting can save you time and trouble and will leave your home looking better than if you, the homeowner, perform the task yourself. Finding these contractors is not hard. There are many willing and able painting contractors all around. Determining which are the best to hire is sometimes problematic, but with a little research, you will find a competent contractor in no time. Just be sure to look for contractors with a good track record. If you personally know somebody who used them before, then be sure to speak with them and inquire as to their skill and reliability. You never want to hire a contractor who will take your generosity for granted and make a mess of your lawn, home and property.
