A Guide to the Difference Between Spray and Brush Painting Techniques

Last updated 5 years ago

If your house or business has wood or composite siding, it’s a good idea to apply touch-up paint every couple of years. You should apply two layers: the first layer for insulation, and the second layer for protection from damage. Many experts say that the first layer should be brushed on. When a brush is used, the paint is worked into the surface more thoroughly than spraying. But it’s important to brush with great care, as improper brushing can make the paint look uneven. After the first layer of paint is dry, the second layer can be applied using a spray gun. Spraying saves a lot of time over brushing. Again, proper technique is critical. Careless spray painting will result in dripping, which makes the paint job look sloppy.
