Indoor Paint Jobs: What to Know
Unlike exterior paint jobs, the majority of interior painting projects are applied to smooth surfaces. Whether indoors or out, each construction material requires a very specific mode of application. From basic walls to stucco’d ceilings, each area has its own unique needs, and our technicians know how to treat all of them.
Managing Materials: Between heritage homes and new builds, there are a lot of materials in play, some of which are more likely to take paint than others. Painting cupboards is not the same as painting walls or borders and trim. For example, painting following drywall repair can leave raw patches, in which paint dries unevenly without primer. It takes years of practice to figure out how to treat each other these areas but who has the time for that?! Our professional painters have spent years in the industry, familiarizing ourselves with all styles and types of materials, so we’ve done the leg-work for you!
Paint Type According to Area: It is no secret that some areas around your property are more at risk than others for dampness and moisture. Before you commit to high gloss paint or latex paint, it is important to consider which room you are working on. Treating walls in kitchen environments, for example, means opting for easy-to-clean finishes.
Increase Your Space: Choosing the right paint color is about more than just a clean slate. The fresh coat of paint will not increase the square footage of a space but it can give the illusion of more space. By applying paint to trim and baseboards as well as walls, it is possible to gain a few inches of additional wall surface, adding inches to the overall frame of the rooms.
Boost Curb Appeal: When selling a home or hoping to have a valuation performed, a fresh coat of paint is key to adding value and attracting potential buyers. Having a neutral paint job can help potential buyers envision themselves living in a space, encouraging them to make offers on your space instead of passing it over.
Residential Interior Painting: Getting the Best Results
Plenty of property owners are quick to reach for a paint brush and get to work on their walls and surrounding areas. In theory, this seems like a simple enough task but there is a lot that goes into a great paint job. In addition to getting a great finish, professional painting companies are able to treat your property according to its unique needs.
The secret to a high quality paint job is all in the preparation. Unlike outdoor areas, power washing surfaces is not an option. Pre-treating walls mean knocking down cobwebs, removing dirt and debris and creating a clean surface area. Even in this stage, a lot can go wrong. From not allowing walls to dry properly, using harsh chemicals on surfaces or using a heavy-handed approach, all of these can leads scuffs, bumps and unnecessary damage behind.
