#1 Estimate how much paint you would need

Paint Calculator: Estimate the Coverage and Amount of Paint You Would Need

Take the guess work out of how much paint you’d need for the area you are thinking of painting, before going out to buy the x number of paint cans at a Boysen Mix and Match Station nearest you.

This post shows you how to calculate digitally using the Boysen App. Aside from the paint calculator, there are other functions like giving you the painting system you’d be needing for the type of surface you’d be painting. What’s more, you can also browse the Boysen paint colors available.

But if you’re old school, the blog post will offer you a manual way, which will give you the mano-mano formula.

#2 Skimcoat vs. Putty

Know the Difference: Skimcoat vs. Putty for Concrete Surfaces

Let me emphasize here again that to have a superb paint finish, excellent surface preparation is needed.

Most Pinoy homes have concrete surfaces. Aside from knowing how to prepare your surface properly, it is also important to know the terms used by painters and when to use what product.

Both skimcoat and putty correct surface imperfections and defects. There’s a great infographic too that shows the step-by-step process of painting a concrete wall.

#3 Boysen Plexibond

Boysen Plexibond Dos and Don’ts

We get loads of questions about Boysen Plexibond, one of the mainstays of the Boysen brand.

In a country with only two seasons—dry and wet—and where wet can be really wet, the interest for Boysen Plexibond is understandable. The product can be used to waterproof your home, but you need to use it correctly.

When you type Plexibond in the search bar of Let it B, you will get this long list.

The reason for having so many articles about the product is because of the high interest. Questions though are usually similar, like whether this could be used in submerged surfaces like ponds or pools (to which the answer is NO), or whether it can be used as a stand-alone product (still NO), or whether it can be mixed with other materials aside from Portland cement (also a NO).

Read on these expert tips for easier use and application of Boysen Plexibond.

#4 Boysen Tulle White
