Other Important Questions Choosing Paint Brush

What kind of paint do you use for baseboards?

The most common paint to use today for baseboards, woodwork, trim is a high quality acrylic latex paint sold by Sherwin-Williams™, Benjamin Moore™, BEHR™, Valspar™, Glidden™, PPG™. All companies produce a very high quality paint that adheres to baseboards and trim as smoothly as the brush stroke is made. The paint you choose is one thing, the brush is another, along with the finesse with the application itself.

What is the best paint for trim?

Best paint for trim is your Top-of-the-Line acrylic semi-gloss latex in any paint store you choose patronizing. These paints range from $40.00 a gallon, to $80.00. Will tell you something from a painters standpoint. The painter can tell the difference when opening the can. Not the "paint smell'', but the viscosity, once brush is initially dipped, and racked off excess, and so will you.

Coverage is an important characteristic, and those more expensive paints do just that. Laying on smoothly, covering older paint coatings, or bonding to a primed baseboard, leaves the trim is museum quality appearance. Therefore, you get what you pay for.

Seeing this daily, from an older can used several years ago, what the trim looks like today. Better paints withstand test of time, not having to paint nearly as often. Highly recommend splurging digging a little deeper buying the best paint for your trim.

Do you paint a door with a brush or roller?

Painting a door using a brush or roller really depends on what type of door you plan painting. If you have a slab door, solid or hollow core, a roller is best served. If you have a lot of intricate moldings, a good bristled brush with solid shank will best serve you well.

Some doors have raised panels such as 6 or 9 panels doors. These doors if not sprayed, needing painting is best painted by brushing the moldings, letting completely dry, then using a foam or fine sheepskin roller nap over all flat areas, combining the two into one completely painted raised panel door.
