Torontopainters.org's insight:

Upgrading your home spend wisely. There are certain things that make sense that increase the value of your home and there are other items which look good are a total waste of money if you're looking to recuperate the investment and then some.

Low dollar investments that are worth doing to add additional value to your home. Any house or home that gets a makeover for either personal or for resale should be painted. Painters in Mississauga do a lot of interior wall painting prior to home staging. Interior painting of your home is probably the single most cost-effective home-improvement. When our house painters paint your house the work also will repair all your damaged drywall giving the walls a nice flat even smooth look. And if done right you could have a nice nonreflective flat sheen to hide any further irregularities in your walls. This really makes the home look fresh and neat. Do not use any shiny paints because this will amplify any wall irregularities and textures in the drywall. Secondly, paint all the walls a very light color which will give the room a sense of space. It will reflect light making the room feel more open.

Ideas to decorate a small space in a condo. When living in a condo you have to figure out carefully and wisely wants to purchase and where to put it. When you have a small space like a condo it does not allow large items. Many times we have painted condo bedrooms where the bed was almost as big as the room. Times like this all we can do is paint one wall at a time and move the bed around. You need to look at some pictures of how people decorate their small condos and some ideas on what you might put in their to satisfy your needs. Don't forget there are walls in a condo you can put stuff on to say some floor space. And don't get the largest furniture when you combine the smaller one to fit the space.

Platinum Pro Painters, Toronto's Leading House Painting Company, Comments on What Soaring Toronto Home Prices Mean for Sellers

>PRWEB.COM Newswire
Via John Q. Shearer
Torontopainters.org's insight:

There might be 2 reasons why you might consider doing some house painting which might be directly tied to the housing market. As you know the government raises the prime rate again by 25 basis points which increases the lending rate for some people not to be able to afford the payments on a new home.
With this in mind, you might be thinking about selling your home because the mortgage payments will be too high. Knowing this you might want to put your house on the market for sale. To help sell your home you should think about doing home staging were you clean out and paint your house where needed to make it more enticing for prospective homebuyers.
Or the other reason would be to keep your home but freshen it up and make your house feel like a new home which is a lot cheaper than buying a new one.

The wrath of Warren Buffett: How Benjamin Moore almost broke his promise

The wrath of Warren Buffett: How Benjamin Moore almost broke his promise | Home improvements | Scoop.it
Turmoil roiled Benjamin Moore, a paint company owned by Berkshire Hathaway, after it decided to break a pledge Warren Buffett made to Moore's dealers. How did it happen—and how did the Oracle of Omaha respond? A case study in pluses (and occasional minuses) of being owned by Berkshire.

Via Enzo Calamo
Torontopainters.org's insight:

Benjamin Moore Canada parent company is owned by Warren Buffett of Brookshire Hathaway. It is a quality company making around $1 billion a year sales so this must indicate that paint this company makes must be good. It is good from our experience at Mississauga handyman painting and carpentry company. Our most preferred paint is Benjamin Moore's "regal select". It's very difficult to find the paint that covers better and applies smoother and is easier to work with.
When I compare other paints to Benjamin Moore Canada paints they fall far behind for many different reasons. Some don't hide well and need more coat of paint. Some paints some paints are too thick and/or hard to work with, and some paints don't stick to the wall properly and start sagging requiring an additional going back and rerolling the wall. When you apply regal select and roll it smoothly onto the wall you will find that its property is to flatten out nicely creating a lustrous velvety finish.

Torontopainters.org's insight:

Patching Drywall and Drywall Repairs

Patching drywall from small holes in the hole created by nails for pictures and like cracks are relatively easy to fix and hide. In most cases, it is easy as taking your putty knife/plastering blade and place little plaster on the knife and just swipe it over the hole. With care pass over the hole a few times to make sure you have not left any ridges of wet plaster/drywall compound. If you did a good job with this you won't even have to sand it. Larger holes might be more of a challenge because you will have to do a more careful job in filling the crack or the larger hole. There's a point where you will need either drywall tape or fiber tape on larger cracks in the drywall. When it comes to holes most holes that are over 1 inch in diameter should be covered with a solid drywall patch. This patch can be purchased at most building centers. It comes in different sizes. This patch has a metal or rigid inside portion and then is surrounded with a sticky mesh on the perimeter of the patch that will stick to the wall and you will plaster over top of that. This type of patch requires more than one coat to get a nice even smooth finish. Looking for drywall with check us out at

5 Home Improvement Projects you Should Never DIY

5 Home Improvement Projects you Should Never DIY | Home improvements | Scoop.it
Usually, people attempt their house upgrades without considering the potential dangers. Here are 5 home improvement DIY that should be done by experts.
Torontopainters.org's insight:

Thinking about doing some home improvement Mississauga? I have a quick warning for those who think they can do everything themselves. Things look easy when you are looking at a TV show where everything seemed to go as planned without any snags usually. For example, if you are enlarging your living-dining room into your kitchen and you are deciding to remove a portion or all of the walls you might think again before you do it. There are all kinds of considerations you think about when removing a wall. Probably the most important factor is whether it is loadbearing which means does it support the upstairs floor. Secondly are there any electrical wires and heating ducts inside the wall going to the upstairs floor. You will have to reroute all these things if you decide to remove the wall and it has these items in there.

If you are not sure what's behind the wall to an exploratory drywall removal on one side without damaging anything. This is to inspect all the contents of the wall to see what you're up against. Look for any pipes or wires even vacuum cleaner plumbing and also look at the top above the stars to see if there are beams supporting the upper floor usually it is 2 2 x 6 or 2 x 8 beams set on their edge giving floor support and are held by the studs.

If you see evidence of any of this you might have to rethink this or hire Mississauga handyman to do these home improvements Mississauga services for you.

What’s the difference between stucco and plaster?

What’s the difference between stucco and plaster? | Home improvements | Scoop.it
Stucco and plaster have become interchangeable, many times to home owners’ detriment. Don’t confuse the two creating misaligned expectation of performance.
Torontopainters.org's insight:

When Mississauga handyman ceiling repair services get called for ceiling repairs sometimes the customer gets confused as to what exactly to say about describing their stucco ceiling. Possibly they have never heard the word "stucco" they just think it's plaster with some kind of design, In fact, they are to totally different types of material.

Talking about the actual physical and visual differences between stucco and plaster is that plaster is usually a smooth material which repairs drywall cracks with and holes in your drywall. While stucco is a course looking substance which is sprayed onto your ceiling with an air compressor and a hopper. The stucco spray gun shoots the stucco on the ceiling leaving a rough texture. The rough texture can be controlled by the amount of water that is mixed in with the stucco and the amount of pressure that is being blown up with and the size of the orifice that controls the volume of the stucco that is being sprayed.

Then there are other ways of doing a stucco ceiling which is called French plaster. We usually spray the stucco on in a normal fashion and then we break down the peaks of the stucco by smoothing over lightly the entire ceiling surface giving it a more modern look.

Should You Start Home Improvement Projects Over The Winter?

Should You Start Home Improvement Projects Over The Winter? | Home improvements | Scoop.it
Home improvement projects are generally considered the summer job that we all plan and get round to doing several years down the line; in my case I put off painting the garden fence until I moved home, and moved to a home with a newly painted fence.

However, there are many improvements that can be made during the winter months. We’ve taken a look at what is typically seasonal work, and found some surprising insight into what can be achieved over the winter months.

The warm summer months are a great opportunity to paint the garden fence, re-turf, knock down half your house and let a nice breeze in while you build an extension or completely redesign your floorplan.

Your days in the sun should also be spent thinking about how to best protect your homes for the winter months. Although not purely “summer jobs”, insulating your home against the chill is always recommended.

If you haven't done this yet you might think about checking to see if is any drafts around your doors and windows this might give you some ideas on doing these upgrades. Have you thought about putting fresh carpet down that might help insulate the floor?

Another great DIY project if you think you can do it is due some room painting. Paint these days is not nearly as caustic smelling as before. Paint fumes have gone out of the guideline of the government for VOC emissions so don't worry you probably won't die if you paint a room. The Mississauga handyman painting has been thinking 40 years and is still alive and painting.
