Preparation

 


A properly prepared surface is critical to the quality and long-term durability of the paintwork. Our dedication to correcting any underlying issues is a big part of what sets us apart as premier professionals. To make sure your paint project is successful, the prep phase may include:

  • Filling nail holes, cracks and imperfections in the drywall or substrate
  • Apply cleaning solution to remove smoke damage, soot, or candle residue where required
  • Apply drop cloths and/or plastic to protect your furniture, fixtures, carpet, trim, windows, and floors
  • Repair or replace drywall if necessary
  • Sand and re-texture patched areas to ensure seamless blending with the rest of the wall

Prime


The priming phase is key to making sure that your paint continues to look great! The priming phase may include:

  • Spot-prime patched drywall or apply a full primer coat after wallpaper removal or depending on the condition of the surface to be painted
  • Apply shellac-based or oil-based sealer to water stains

Paint


The painting phase usually includes:

  • First coat of your selected colors to walls, ceilings and trim
  • When changing color of the walls, stick-sanding to smooth the surface after the first coat and apply a full second coat
  • If necessary, stick-sanding and applying a third coat where needed (depending on the original color or absorption of the first coats)

Cleanup

 

The job doesn't end when we're done painting. Our clean-up phase includes:

  • Removing all debris from the job site
  • Vacuuming, sweeping and dusting all areas
  • Re-installing wall plates for electrical outlets, light switches and network connections as applicable
