Paying someone to paint your cement is a very common misstep. It sounds like a good idea, and it is, in an obvious way: you spend less time and money. But there are lots of other ways to save money that don’t involve hiring someone. You don’t need professional painting services if you just get the cement mixed in the right proportions and paint it yourself, or have someone else do it.

Painting cement is not difficult, but it isn’t easy either. If you find painting cement hard, you probably won’t be able to paint it yourself. And if you can do the work yourself, you are likely to save money by doing so.

Here are six ways to save money by having a professional paint your cement:

When painting cement, you want to be sure you have a good quality paint. You also need to have a good quality brush.

You should never use a cheap brush for painting cement. Cheap brushes tend to break and get nicks, which means that the paint ends up in the joints, where it will not dry properly.

So don’t try to save money by using one of those $1 dollar store brushes. They are not very good quality and they are not strong enough to handle the paint you need to apply correctly. If you want your cement painted right, use a good quality brush that has been made especially for this purpose.

If you are putting up a fence or working on a deck around the house, then you will be able to get away with a cheaper brush, but it is not recommended that you do so. If there is any chance of damage while you are painting it might be worth getting professional help from an experienced painter who can come out and give free estimates over the phone as well as giving a free estimate for what it will cost if they come out and do it for you.

Artists may charge per square foot, but I have always found that if I am charging by actual hours worked it is most accurate.

It is hard to paint cement. It is hard to clean up after painting cement. If you are painting cement regularly, you will probably find it easier and cheaper to just hire a painter who does that for you.

But if you’re not sure how to paint cement, or don’t want to buy a kit, or don’t have time to learn, then the best way to learn would be with one of my classes.

Painting cement is a bit like flying an airplane: even if there aren’t any mistakes, it’s hard and expensive if there are any.

Painting cement is not hard, but it does require a few special skills. Here are six ways to get the best possible result in the minimum time.

Do it yourself: You can do it yourself. This will take a couple of hours and cost about $100. It won’t be as good as what a professional can do but it will still look pretty good and the work will be well paid for. Do it with a pro: If you don’t mind paying more for labor, hiring a pro is the most efficient way to go. You’ll spend maybe three hours and $200, but you’ll get excellent results with no wasted time or effort on your part. Use paintable latex paint: You can use latex paint (which is also called “paintable caulk”) instead of paint if you want to save money and achieve similar results. It’s easy to use, comes in many colors, and has virtually no odor compared with oil-based paints like Oilite or acrylics like Acrylic latex. It dries quickly, so you won’t have to go back over the same area twice; ceiling flakes that fall off the ceiling won’t stick to the roof; and cleanup after painting is simple because there’s no need for sanding or scraping clean

If you have a cement driveway, you can save money by having it painted by a professional. The details of the painting process are complicated, and I won’t go into them here. But there are six basic steps.

The first step is to select the color for your driveway. There are several good reasons to do that. First, it’s fun to pick the perfect shade of gray; second, it’s fun to pick a color that will look great after your car drives through it; third, it’s useful to know what color will hide dirt best; fourth, in some cities the rules say your driveway has to be exactly the same color as your house; fifth, if you want a different color in addition to gray or another color than what is permitted for concrete driveways, you need professional help with that; sixth, if you paint your driveway wrong-color-for-gray or wrong-color-after-your-car-drives-through-it, the paint will peel off in one place only and become a major maintenance headache.

Once you’ve picked a color and decided when your painting job will be done (you can always change your mind), you need to decide what surfaces you want painted: all concrete? just the front yard? no

Painting is a slow and complicated job. And if you’re painting the exterior of a house, the weather can be unpredictable. It’s easy to get frustrated and give up. But if you know what to expect, you can make it go much faster.

1. You can paint all year long, with no interruptions. Most outside projects need to be done in the summer months when the weather is nice and dry; wintertime is for fixing things that have already fallen apart (like painting your house).

2. Many projects require several coats of paint. If you’re used to thinking of houses as being one big room-and-a-half, with the walls painted in one coat, then this will come as a surprise: Most homes actually have three or four layers of paint on the outside walls: One coat for the bottom three feet or so at least; two coats on the middle six feet; and three coats on the top three feet or so.

3. Painting a house is really a two-person job: One person to do all the work that isn’t too technical, like measuring and cutting; and one person in charge of making sure they don’t fall off while they’re doing it all. This makes it possible for an amateur to
