Plaster crack repair?

Hair line size: fill it with topcoat

Crack crack!! : you need plaster tape (mesh roll), cut to size of the crack, sticky part of the mesh goes on wall or ceiling. with your filling blades skim it lightly. Enough to cover the mesh without hurting the edges. next day sand it and skim it widder. once dry light sand starting fro the edges working in. If plaster doesnt look perfect don't paint it. repeat step 2

How to paint gutters on a house?

You can paint it by brush or spray gun.

By brush you will need a pot and a brush, a med roller and microfiber roller

you can brush the faces of the gutter but to make a perfect edge on the bottom you need a med roller

If you are going to use a spray gun, you shouldn't be on this page because you are already an expert. in all seriousness you can use a spray gun, you just need to be extremely careful with any over spray

Painting over mould?

You can, if you want to have a new freshly painted wall with mould bleeding through, doesn't matter how many coats you put, it will bleed through.

What we do it, clean it 1st with a combo of bleach and white vinegar. then wipe it down with a wet cloth. x1 coat of oil base undercoat (smelly paint) only way to clean oil base is with turpentine.

The oilbase undercoat acts like a stain blocker + x2 topcoats

How much do painters charge per day?

Some painter charge and hrly rate around $35-$55 p/h. Others charge for the job itself, because imagine having a race driver next to a normal driver. they both have to do the same distance but one is faster than the other. By consequence is not how long one stay doing something but how good you are at it
