Touching up the paint throughout your home is such a simple task, right? You might be under the impression that nothing could possibly go wrong, but there are a lot of factors that impact the quality of a paint job. These common painting touch-up problems are reason enough to call a professional handyman.

Causes of Painting Touch-up Problems

These factors cause issues that make your simple paint job turn into a nightmare:

  • Fluctuations in the temperature can cause color differences. If you’re touching up the paint with the same shade that you used originally, you might be surprised to find that there’s a discrepancy between the touch-up and the original coat.
  • Surfaces that are particularly porous can cause the end result to turn out dull or off-color. You have to prime a porous surface to prevent the paint from being soaked up, and going through the priming process just adds more work for you. Hiring a handyman means someone else worries about all those coats.
  • Different paints have different drying times. If you’re used to a paint that dries completely within a couple hours, you might run into problems when you try to put a finishing coat on top of a paint that takes a few days to dry.
  • There are several different tools for applying paint to walls. You could use rollers, brushes or airless sprayers, and the results from each of these tools can differ significantly.
