Painting to Sell

When you are prepping your house for sale, there’s always several big debates for chronic DIYers like us: how much to paint, how much to do oneself, how much to hire out, and who to hire. For a recent project, hiring college kids on Spring Break worked well and gave them some needed spending money but we did have to do some finishing details afterward, like going over the quarter inch of bright green paint that showed above the realtor’s favorite “Amazing Gray” when our good-hearted amateurs taped just shy of the ceiling.

Once you have decided to do what you can yourself (because paint is cheap and labor is not), there are decisions like whether or not to use painter’s tape, what nap of roll to pick, which drop cloth to use (versus an old sheet which either leaks through to the floor or an outdoor tarp which can be slippery) and of course, which length and brand of paintbrush. We are a bit of brush snobs because a little extra money on brushes goes a long way in keeping bristles from being painted into your walls. Soooo many choices, so little time. Oh, and let’s not even begin to mention the paint itself.

Fortunately for you, we did mention paint and painting tools in our podcast on How to Paint Like a Pro. You can also read about picking paint colors in Picking Paint Colors with a professional.

As all good product manufacturers, we found a few new items on the shelves when prepping our house for sale this year. FrogTape now has a yellow Delicate Surface Painter’s Tape with PaintBlock, 1.88″ wide. This is especially helpful when you are trying to get your painting done in a tight time frame and you are painting the wall soon after the trim is dry. You heard me right. Pros told us to paint the trim, especially complicated trim, first. We’ve done it both ways – wall, then trim, but it worked out surprisingly well to do the baseboard first this last go around.

Leave us comments about your favorite story of painting “challenges”. What worked? What didn’t?

Selling Your House During a Global Pandemic

When we (Handyguy Brian and his wife, Sarah) decided to sell our house last year and started prepping it to show, we, like the rest of the world, didn’t realize our dreams might get delayed just a bit in the Spring of 2020. We cleaned out our closets, took a ton of trips to the landfill, painted, re-carpeted, landscaped and had it all ready to go. And then the world shut down. Admittedly for our own benefit but who could have guessed? Despite it all, we had a very helpful realtor who...

When we (Handyguy Brian and his wife, Sarah) decided to sell our house last year and started prepping it to show, we, like the rest of the world, didn’t realize our dreams might get delayed just a bit in the Spring of 2020.

We cleaned out our closets, took a ton of trips to the landfill, painted, re-carpeted, landscaped and had it all ready to go. And then the world shut down. Admittedly for our own benefit but who could have guessed? Despite it all, we had a very helpful realtor who managed to squeeze in filming a professional video of our home before the state mandated a complete shut-down due to COVID-19. We thought we would get a couple of inquiries from the video. I am sure it was helpful, but things didn’t really change until couples could come back in and see the house with their realtor and their face masks. Then, we got an offer in only a week and half. More on that to come since we are still in the process of inspections, appraisals and other steps in the process to close on it and find our dream home with more land in the mountains of Tennessee.

The Handyguys did a previous post and video on Curb Appeal that you might enjoy if you are trying to sell your house this year. In fact, I’ll share the video again here but starting with clean front door and entry-way is a great place to begin.

Did you know Rust-Oleum has a great door paint too? Fade & chip resistant. Check it out to get started on a great home project while you have the time!

When you’re hanging something heavy, a simple nail probably won’t do the job. Whether it’s an heirloom family mirror or a large painting, you want to be confident it will hang securely on your wall for years to come.
The right method for hanging your object depends on the type of wall you have and where you want to hang it. There are several ways to approach this task, depending on whether your wall is plaster, drywall or brick.
If your home was built before World War II, it likely has plaster walls, BobVila.com says. Most newer homes are made with drywall, though homeowners may opt for plaster if they’re looking for a textured or glossy finish. If you’re unsure, you can try pinning a tack into an unobtrusive portion of your wall. If it’s easy to push the tack into the wall to hang up a picture or a poster, it’s likely drywall, BobVila.com says. Plaster is brittle and can’t usually be pierced in this way.
Before trying any of the following methods, check the guidelines on the hardware you purchase to make sure it will be able to withstand the weight of the object you’re trying to hang. If you’re unsure, you may want to hire a professional handyman to hang your picture or mirror.

Are you in the market for a new water heater? If you’re looking to replace your conventional storage water heater with something a little more energy efficient, you might want to learn more about tankless, or demand-type, water heaters.

According to Energy.gov, if you and your family use less than 41 gallons of hot water per day, switching to a tankless water heater may save 24 to 34 percent more energy than a conventional storage water heater. If you’re looking to learn more about these demand-type water heaters, watch as home maintenance experts The Handyguys explain the pros and cons of tankless water heaters.
