Tip Corner - Preserve Your Paint

How often have you opened up your old paint cans to do some touching etc. up and found this:


You know when you pour out the paint, dry bits will end up in your tray - then on your walls - so you'll be rewarded with both headaches and a poor quality finish!

Here’s a solution that will help reduce or eliminate these issues!

When you open your can for the first time, take a screw driver or other pointed tool and create holes in the lip of the fresh can. 





These holes will allow your residual paint to fall back into the can making clean up and closing the lid much easier.  The next time you open your can you’ll be happy you did! 

Also remember – when you come to pour the paint, turn the can to protect the label side with your preferred language so you can read the whole label in future!

Join our supplier program

The Contractors Site is searching for businesses that supply quality products and services to the construction field, and, who are interested in advertising on our site. We believe it is likely that you already have an active website. Even so, we not only invite you, but encourage you to join us! Suppliers who sign on will be actively promoted throughout each month of membership. This is your chance to specifically target our visitors, many of whom are construction professionals, labourers and members of the general public who are looking to discover or acquire quality goods not necessarily available at big box outlets.
