The difficulty and importance of quality interior painting is almost always overlooked. Most people think it’s as easy as picking up some paint, rollers, and that trusty roll of tape. However, a bad paint job is the hardest thing professionals encounter. The mistakes that were made by the homeowners (e.g. patches and roller marks) are difficult to undo. Believe it or not, they usually need to be skimmed over with joint compound – a very time consuming task.
The process inside is, again, mostly about the prep work. We do a lot of sanding, patching, caulking and really just running our hands over the walls. Once we have patched all the imperfections (a time mastered talent) we’re ready to prime those patches. We would next apply all the caulking, which seals the trim molding to the wall.
Now comes the fun part – painting! A steady hand and many years of practice allow us to avoid the dreaded step of taping. We cut the edges in and get ready to roll on the top coat. The ceilings are painted first and then the walls. The final step of painting the trim really brings it all together!
