INTERESTING HISTORY OF PAINTING
Tempera paint was the most common form of paint product as early as the 1500's. This smooth surface covering was made using primarily egg yolks as the binding agent, then smoothing and thinning out using a liquid of vinegar or water. Ingredients such as charcoal or clay or fruit would finish the thinned out product; several coats would be required to fully cover a wall. It’s hard to imagine but decorating a building's interior is probably as ancient as the design and erection of structured buildings have been built for protection from animals and Mother Nature.
Whether it’s a kitchen, a bedroom, or a family room, painted wall surfaces usually mark the beginning of creating a room’s motif and ultimate overall colour selections and feel of the room or home. When Leonardo Davinci prepared for his artistic creations, not to mention the fixed improvements he worked on such as cathedrals and domes, he spent much of his time creating paints and colours suitable for his work and one’s that would create and retain the beauty he was after. However, the average folks identified the paint creations more as the base covering for their home or castle and used the influential colorful bases to create, or at least select their fabrics and other finishing fixtures and materials. Whenever you visit a museum historical showing, you will observe the detail and colours that went into items like furniture and Room dividers; especially cabinets which were very often decorated with faux paint style finishes that miraculously passed the test of time, many old pieces remain in excellent repair today. In fact, priceless could describe a lot of the ancient furniture along with extraordinary beauty will not be matched anytime soon.
Interior painting continues to be one of, if not, the most important parts of improving home décor. You might not know, but homeowners make interior colour changes about every seven to eight years. In spite of the fact that we do not use gorgeous blueberries, or charcoals as the base tint of paint any longer, more beautiful colors than ever are being created and painting one's interiors has remained an exciting first step to upgrading, and improving the look of your home.
Residential Painting in the GTA
As residential painters, House Painters Vaughan works with homeowners to create masterpieces both outside and in sharing key advice and experiences with preparation and finishes. Experience, humorous situations, unusual events and weather all go into forming our experiences and learning curve. That’s right, constant obstacles and circumstances make up our painting path, but the good news here is we get to make use of those experiences to better hone our skills and bring the best in painting directly to you.
Exterior painting jobs are a slightly different proposition. You cannot paint year round due to inclement weather as well as daytime temperatures. If it has been more than eight years since the outside of your home was painted and resealed, then it might be time for a very thorough inspection of surfaces and door and window seals. Bubbling or cracking and peeling paint may be present which can indicate aging, sometimes revealing a poor paint job when it was first done. When temperatures have not reached comfortable numbers, hopefully above 50 degrees daytime, priming and painting will suffer and in all likelihood not set properly. Proper setting or curing is essential to good looking, lasting exterior painting whether it’s walls, doors, decks or furniture.
As accomplished painters both inside and out, we pride ourselves in the way we get ready with our prepping, priming and protection. Outside we paint everything, we stain wooden furniture, decks and fences and we further ensure that our exterior products and finishes are fully protected or that lasting protection is inherently built in. You must be completely satisfied for many years.
