  2. Opaque antiseptics completely cover wood texture, while maintaining a prominent relief wooden surface.
  • Oil paint is very well absorbed into the wood, have excellent weatherability, prevents the penetration of moisture in it.But they are rather slow to dry (at least 7 hours, and more often - a few days), they tend to change over time, the color and matting, which is most noticeable in the dark and bright shades of paint.
  • Acrylic paint Weatherproof, better keep oil saturated color, luster, good "breathe", ie, they have a water vapor permeability, elastic, not crack.Modern acrylic akvalaki more environmentally friendly compared to other, often they recommended to treat the inner surfaces.

Next will be the sequence of actions:

1. Clean the surface from dust, dirt and traces of the old structure.This is a very important step.Paints and varnishes can not be applied to the dirty surface.Therefore, clean off all dirt and old paint brush or scraper, washed well with water.If the flaps are on the old structure bunk hold strongly enough, you can try to wash it with a solution of soda (300 g in a bucket of water (hot)).This is usually enough to clean off all the good.Mildew can be removed with a special solution to remove mold.Old paneling, rotten planks and curves must be replaced with new ones.For cleaning you can use a special bleaching or lightening stained.For better adhesion of paint to the surface it can be degreased with alkaline detergents

2. Sanding across the wood surface.This can be done quite effectively by using the pumice plain.

3. Application of an antiseptic primer if necessary.This step can be and miss, but the durability of the applied composition of these works better to produce.The fact is that for pine, spruce and many other tree species are so-called "resin pockets" in the area felled knots.Resin, which is allocated from time to time of such formations, lowers the protective properties of the septic tank or ink.Primers are different: for external, separately and for interior work are made and antifungal, and protivoplesnevye primers, etc.They significantly prolong coatings.Therefore, pre-problem areas lining primed and wait until primer is dry (usually lining dries up in a day).

4. The last stage of the surface is covered with paint or transparent antiseptics.For their application using spray gun, roller or brush.Finish applied to bunk with a thin layer, producing continuous motion of the brush from the top down.Brush is recommended to avoid spending more than once on one and the same place.Paint only the tips of the bristle brush, but not the bottom.When the first layer dries, is applied to the second and then a third, if necessary.It should be borne in mind that a few thin layers will keep longer than 1 thick.The final layer is applied from the top down, or stains from the brush will be visible.

Useful tips ↑

If you want to really qualitatively perform painting and want to the life of the paintwork on the bunk was as long as possible, be sure to observe the following tips

  1. Mix paintas thoroughly as possible before and during the painting, otherwise the color and gloss coating will be uneven.
  2. Make a test paint, for example, on a small plot of unused board.So you can check the correctness of the chosen color.
  3. It is best to paint brush.But do not apply it too thick layers in order to avoid non-uniformity of color and surface gloss.
  4. Do not be surprised, but sometimes in the course of work you may need tsigeykovye gloves.The key is that the lining may alternate with pipes and other metal elements.Previous pipe paint is very difficult, since one side is always on the ground.So just remove the tsigeykovuyu mitten fur outside, put her on the arm and lower in the paint to be used as a brush.1 minute in such a unique way to paint possible up to 5 m pipe.
  5. Try zakolerovat primer in a color that will match the most forthcoming paintwork.
  6. not paint exposed to direct sunlight, otherwise the paint can dry quickly undesirable.It is better not to make paint work in bright, sunny weather and on hot days, as in the days of rainfall.Optimum weather for painting - windless, cloudy and warm.
  7. ends of boards - it's weakest points, the most water through them quickly and easily absorbed into the wood, which is why they require particularly careful handling.Cover them with several layers of primer paint material.
  8. Keep in mind, intending to paint the facade of the building - if no bunk gross structural defects, it can be easy to paint again in the same or a different color.We just need to stick to one rule: for re-painting always use the same cover that was present in the bunk above.Types of colors is easy to determine visually.Acrylic paint cracks in the direction of the wood fibers and has a leathery surface.It can be torn off and roll into a tube, while it will not break.In this experiment oil paint faults with a bang.We usually antiseptic glossy film.The surface with antiseptic allowed to repaint them well or oil paint.
