HOW TO PAINT INTERIOR
Unless you have specific needs, these are the steps we follow on how to paint interior of your home whether we are painting just one room or the entire house.
Surface Preparation for Paint
Properly preparing the surface to accept new paint is the first step to a superior quality paint job. This is often the most time-consuming part of the process, but a uniform surface is very important, Clark County Painting takes the time to do it do surface preparation right, because a good base means a quality outcome.
Covering & Protecting; Part of the Interior Painting Process
Your furniture and possessions are important to you, so we take responsibility to protect them. Before we do anything, we empty the room as much as possible. We remove furniture, fixtures, outlets (as needed) and switch-plate covers. Anything that can’t be removed is protected with heavy duty leap resistant drop cloths. All windows and doors are carefully masked with high grade painters tape, and masking paper / plastic sheeting.
Drywall Repair & Caulking
Small holes caused by nails and anchors are filed with spackle. Large holes, wall / corner dents and scrapes are patched with joint compound or a patch, repair technique may vary depending on the size and extent of the damaged area. Cracked corner beads are re-attached, and cracked inside corners are repaired with tape and drywall compound or Spackle. All sheetrock repairs are re-textured to blend into the surrounding wall texture.
Surface Smoothing and Priming for Paint
All surfaces are checked for uniformity and smoothness, and we sand if necessary. This includes untextured drywall, painted woodwork / doors. All cracks and gaps in painted wood work, including door frames, baseboards, and window casings are filled with quality caulking for a durable and lasting repair. Clark County Painting only uses the highest quality, stain blocking primers to seal and prepare stained or water damaged areas, raw wood, and repairs. In new construction, the entire wall is prepared with an appropriate primer. We use oil-based primers on wood and water-based primer on drywall and patches.
TIPS ON PAINTING WALLS
Unfortunately, this is the step that do-it-yourselfers often skip right to, quality results are achieved through professional and experienced processes. That is why Clark County Painting strictly adheres to our proven process, and only uses undiluted, top quality paints to ensure maximum coverage, durability, and lasting beauty. We have found that applying paint with rollers and brushes provides the best quality finish and minimizes mess. Back rolling and back brushing (these techniques push the paint into the walls porous surface) create a better seal and an attractive subtle texture. In new construction, applying paint with a sprayer gets the job done faster thereby reducing labor costs. Unpainted ceilings are also best painted with a sprayer. In some situations, we may combine sprayers, brushes and rollers to create the best quality finished result.
Window Trim, Woodwork, and Doors; Staining and Finishing
Trim pieces are given the same professional attention as the main paint application process. Painted windows and woodwork are carefully hand brushed. Stained wood can be revitalized with fresh stain and a clear coat finish. This process in almost all cases can be done without removing the trim. Doors can be brushed, rolled, or sprayed, either on or off site, depending on the desired result. We can also install new or replacement trim and doors.
