3 Steps to Producing the Best Interior Paint Results
Interior painting is one of the home improvement projects that comes alive in the winter. As you make plans for repainting some of your interior rooms, follow these three suggestions to get the best results.
- Prepare your surfaces properly by cleaning and repairing the walls before painting. Clean the walls with a light detergent and warm water, rinse the walls and let them dry. Repair your walls by filling holes and cracks or other surface imperfections with a spackling compound. Last, apply primer to any areas that are stained or discolored.
- Use high quality brushes and rollers. Good-quality applicators help the paint to spread evenly and make the job of painting significantly easier. Use brushes that are springy with tightly-packed bristles (these hold the most paint). When applying latex water-based paint, use brushes and rollers made with synthetic bristles so that the brushes maintain their shape when exposed to water.
- Use the best quality paint. High-quality paint is easy to apply and adheres well to drywall. Additionally, high-quality paints are more durable and have the best long-term resistance to fading, yellowing and/or staining.
Follow these three steps and you will produce a beautiful result that will maintain exquisite quality long-term. Call us at 314-952-0156 if you have any other painting or home improvement questions.
