It's not strange to find openings or dents in the surfaces of your house. Should your door stopper fails, the trunk aspect of the knob can struck the wall membrane behind it and make a dent. In the event that you relocate artwork or shelving, you will see holes left out. Toenail pops and soggy water damage and mold on a roof or exterior wall structure will additionally require drywall patching.
Patching drywall is a reasonably simple DIY job. You will need drywall compound, a tiny bucket for bigger careers, a putty blade, and sanding newspaper. For larger slots you will need mesh patches. Each is offered by your near by do-it-yourself store.
Focus on self-priming patch filling up mixture. Traditional materials need a independent priming step before painting therefore the patched areas don't arrive as foggy locations. Self-priming compound enables you to avoid this additional step.
Fill the opening or dent in the wall membrane with the patching element, and gentle it out over a more substantial area with the putty blade. Let it dried out for the approved timeframe and fine sand it down. Add more jackets if necessary, permitting them to dried out and sanding them down as needed. For mudrooms or toy rooms which may have a huge amount of dents in the wall space, skim coat the complete broken area with the mixture several times. The leaner layers will dry out quickly and become easy to fine sand.
Medium sized slots are easily set with stick-on mesh areas. The patch protects the hole, then your compound is split on and sanded off to make a level surface. Bigger, deeper slots require the utilization of joint mixture that creates with a substance reaction, setting up a more robust surface. The ultimate step is to coloring the area.
While drywall patching is not really a difficult DIY job, many homeowners want to leave it to professionals. For expert advice or advice about drywall patching, please give us a call!

Last week we blogged about Dunn-Edwards color of the year for 2018. This week we will talk about Sherwin Williams color of the year for 2018.
According to Sherwin Williams they have chosen Oceanside SW6496 (172-C7) as their color of the year. It looks to be a green to blue color. You can copy and paste this link to check it out.
Sherwin Williams states it is a color of jewel-toned green with rich blue. They also state that it is elusive and accessible. A deep, complex color that gives a sense of familiar with a hint of unknown, Oceanside, unites together a peaceful balance of greens and blues that can be seen in what's new and old .
The blue awakens a multitude of moods depending on color and application. Despite this variation, blues are universally seen as intelligent, honest and interesting which makes blue one of the most beloved colors worldwide.
Oceanside's multi-dimensional, marine-inspired look can give welcoming feel as a color for a front door. Blue gives the feeling of loyalty and trust. Some say if you choose blue you are considered confident and dependable. Green gives a calming effect which helps to give the feel of contentment. Different shades of green can give a feel from relaxation to galvanizing.
Oceanside's green/blue tone can also help initiate creative thinking along with clear thought in your office, or create a soul searching, or self examination feel in your reading nook or bedroom.
Oceanside is universal in design and style from traditional to contemporary, mid-century modern to Mediterranean-inspired.
These are the colors Sherwin Williams is recommending to use with Oceanside. Sherwin Williams also states, that the color Oceanside can make metallics shimmer, like beach stars at dusk. They suggest to set a stage and create drama.
Our estimator would love to help you pick colors. Louis is an artist has has a great eye for colors. He can also help you decide on colors to help you sell your home.

Please let me know your thoughts. Feel free to respond on your thoughts and ideas.
I like the Exuberant Pink.
According to Dunn-Edwards they have chosen Green for 2018 color of the year. They call it The Green Hour DET544. Green seems to be popular right now.
They have a video about it on youtube I have posted the link for you to view.
I feel this picture shows how the color can look inviting. Green is known to have a grounding effect, it helps to connect you to the outdoors.
Remember back in July we blogged about favorite color of the world was Marrs Green. We also blogged on the house we painted Escape Gray back in August, but when you look at the picture you can see it is a light green (you can see picture if you scroll down to Just Finished).
If you like this color we can help you with it. #ournamesaysitall #bestpaintingabq #paint #drywallrepair #stuccorepair
About The Green Hour, known throughout French history as l’heure verte, "The Green Hour" is described as the 5-o’clock hour or twilight, when bistros and cafés were filled with patrons, and absinthe was the drink of choice. Absinthe grew in popularity in the 1840s when French troops were served the drink. By the 1860s, absinthe was so popular in French cafes, bistros and cabarets, it became known as The Green Hour. While the drink color is a more vivid green, The Green Hour reflects the time and era.
This week I want to help make sure you know what to look for when hiring a painter. I am sure most of us are not aware of the fact that the state of New Mexico cancelled licensing for painting contractors. Yes this is not a typo. The New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department decided to eliminate licensing for painting contractors. (Maybe they decided they are making to much money) They have claimed "complaints against these trades as problematic because there is no code standard to which the work performed can be held. As such, licensing the contractors in these trades does not promote public welfare, does not provide protection of life or property." Wait a minute, licensing does help with protection of property. It helps to ensure that the contractor has insurance, as well as paying there fair share of taxes.
Painting was classified as GS-18, with the regulation and licensing department. This is the website that tells what they have decided to declassify www.rld.state.nm.us/constuction.
We are wanting to inform people about this so that they will have knowledge. If a person hires someone because they are cheap, do they have insurance? Or will they be suing the home owners insurance if something happens. How is the home owners property protected? What if they get over spray on cars, break something, or even worse, they get hurt? Is the homeowner going to have to go through their insurance carrier and possibly get their insurance increased, or possibly be sued?
When you hire someone to do work at your home, please make sure they are insured. This protects you as the home owner. It is not worth saving a dollar if it ends up costing you down the road, if they are not carrying insurance. How do you make sure they will not take off with your money? Most painting companies will require some type of deposit. If they are a real painting company then that deposit is insured with the companies insurance.
P.S. if someone says they have a New Mexico license to paint, beware because it is not possible anymore. As of April 1st all have expired.
We just finished this home. I believe it is Jose on the ladder. I love the green in it. If you remember our blog a few weeks ago, we talked about colors and moods. We mentioned Pantone named Greenery their color of the year. Green has a grounding effect that connects you to outdoors. Green can have a soothing effect in softer tones. Myself being from Ca. likes this color because it stands out a little. I enjoy color, and it seems most outside homes are Browns or Tans. I understand it is to go with the desert backgrounds here but, I want to see a scorpion or centipede. It seems they blend in with the tans and browns that are traditional to this area. We used a Sherwin Williams paint on this home. The color is SW6185 Escape Gray which has Black, Green and Raw Umber. This person wants the paint to last so they chose an Elastomeric paint. Elastomeric stretches so it prevents cracks from reappearing in these desert temperatures. If you want your home to stand out a bit with some color, we can help you with that. Just give us a call 505-385-6173. We can help you pick which brand is Best for you @SherwinWilliams, @DunnEdwards, @Behr, @ScuffMaster, @BenjaminMoore, @PPG or any brand you wish for. #BestPaintingAbq, #OurNameSaysItAll
