With the weather in Denver turning warm, we know a few of you weekend warriors are chomping at the bit to get started on your summer projects.  And for some of you that will include exterior paint.  So for those of you who insist on doing it yourself we’ve put together a comprehensive list of many of the tools and supplies we use on most, if not every, paint job: 

  • Paint Brushes
  • Paint Brush Comb & Roller Cleaner
  • Scraper
  • Wire Brush
  • Primer
  • Safety Goggles
  • Dust mask
  • Sandpaper
  • Exterior Spackling
  • Putty Knife
  • Rags
  • Drop Cloths
  • Caulk
  • Caulking Gun
  • Masking Tape
  • Masking Paper
  • Paper Masker
  • Plastic Masking
  • Plastic Masker
  • Razor Knife
  • Razor Blades
  • Paint Remover
  • Bucket
  • Disposable Coveralls
  • Extension Ladder(s)
  • Step Ladder
  • Paint Hook
  • Extension Pole
  • Pressure Washer
  • Paint Thinner/Solvent
  • Paint Sprayer
  • Screw Drivers
  • Hammer
  • 1-gallon Cut Bucket (for hand-work)
  • 5-gallon Bucket
  • Paint

Of course, every job is different and some may require special tools for special situations – like a saw to cut replacement trim, for example, but this list will suffice for most of the jobs out there.  If you don’t own the proper equipment, many rental stores can help with the big stuff, like pressure washers and power sprayers, and the rest can be purchased at Lowe’s, Home Depot or your neighborhood paint store.
