    My home was built before stucco was common. It uses T1-11 plywood siding. I had it professionally prepped and repainted about 3 years ago and most of it still looks really good. However, there are a few patches on west-facing surfaces that the sun has really beat up (see attached photo). I am...

    Hi! I have hired a professional painter to paint our house & am hoping to get some advice from professional painters. To be clear, I did not hire this painter myself. I hired a contractor to do some soffit & facia work, and the contractor I hired has subcontracted out the painting. We've...

    In the bathroom of a home we purchased the ENTIRE drywall is down to the brown paper. A few places you can see the Sheetrock but not to bad. We are going to paint the walls but are not sure if we should put up new drywall or if there is a way to repair the drywall that is currently hanging up...

    Hi! I sanded and primed an old dresser of mine yesterday afternoon. I used 100 and 150 grit sandpaper and a Zinsser oil-based spray primer. (Cover Stain) It was a very humid day in DC when I was working on the project. Much to my disappointment, when I checked on the dresser today I noticed...

    Good day all! The bathroom vent in my house does not suck out moist air like most do. I am not sure why, but it just doesn't. When I get done with the paint, I will be putting in a stronger bathroom vent, but that is another topic. The paint on the bathroom ceiling has been peeling. Someone...

    Hey all, Big fan of DIY projects! When I came home today for the holidays, I was sad to see that both my parent's bathrooms were in terrible conditions. I love my parents and want the best for them so I thought they deserved a descent bathroom. I have done a lot of DIY projects ranging from...

    Hello, I just finished painting some new ornate wood trim and awning installed on a window. I used Glidden gripper primer (gray) and Dunn Edwards Evershield paint (dark brown). Both are acrylic products so I wouldn't expect compatibility issues. The window was primed 3 days ago, and painted...

    Hi, I just purchased a condo, and the previous owner did a sloppy job painting before they moved. It's obvious no prep work was done before they repainted. In the bathroom, it appears that they painted a latex paint over an oil-based paint (or vice versa). The top surface of paint can literally...

    I had primed the whole room, ceiling and walls. Then after a few days, I put some painters tape up and painted the ceiling. Problem was I left the painters tape on too long and when I peeled off the blue tape, along the top of the wall (where it meets the ceiling) there are some areas where...

    Hiya! I'm new to all this DIY stuff, so I could really use some help. I'm finally getting around to re-painting the ceiling in my lounge-room. Problem is, it's cracked up really badly. The paint is at least a fifteen years old (thats how long we've had the place) - but more likely it hasn't...

    I just bought my first home and the seller's painted all the trim and door with latex paint over a high gloss paint without using a primer. Now you can bump into a door and the latex paint scrapes off. Is there a product that will penetrate the latex and bond to the gloss underneath. Then I...
