Things to think about when painting indoors
Preparation is the key
Every experienced painter should tell you the same thing – preparation is the key. To get a great top coat, the surface underneath needs to be sound.
We prepare before painting by cleaning and sanding all areas. We then fill any holes or indentations and repair any damage before plastering, if required, to create a surface suitable for painting.
What about an undercoat?
These days, some paints are produced as a primer and paint all-in-one mixture. If one of these is not used, a primer is advisable, especially for previously unpainted surfaces or if you are drastically changing the wall colour. A primer not only covers up colours and stains, it adds a layer that will help the topcoat to adhere.
We will usually recommend the use of a primer to ensure a top-quality result.
Types of paint
Oil-based paint or water-based paint? Gloss paint, satin paint, or a matte paint finish?
It usually depends on where the paint is being used. Gloss or satin are good for high-traffic areas because they are easily cleaned. But they can make wall imperfections more pronounced. A matte finish, such as flat paints, will not clean as well or endure touches as well, but you won’t see imperfections as much.
We will discuss the best paint type for your job during the quotation process.
Painting takes time
This is related to preparation. Getting a great quality paint finish takes time. Up to two-thirds of the time it takes to paint a surface can be in the preparation. That includes taping off areas for sharp lines, moving furniture and furnishings, removing switch-plates and taping off or removing doorknobs.
It’s a lot of work, but we pride ourselves on our preparation, cutting-in and smooth paint lines.
