Let’s talk about the correct process to follow in order to professionally complete an interior painting project.
Interior Painting Project Prep Work
The first step would be adequately covering the floor in the area to be painted. This is done with drop cloths, paper, plastic, or a combination thereof.
Additionally – if needed – we move furniture away from walls or trim to be painted and cover the furniture.
The main difference between a paint job done professionally and an amateurish paint job is the prep work on walls and ceilings.
Prior to painting, we fill and patch holes and cracks in walls and ceilings and correct taping problems.
Walls, Ceiling and Trim
There are three main components in an interior painting project that may or may not be included: walls, ceilings, and trim.
We often use a different paint for each of these three components in order to get the best finish on each surface.
The Kimberly Painting Process
We rarely do any spraying in occupied homes or buildings. Interior painting is usually done by roll and brush.
Both paint companies provide a wide range of high-quality products to choose from that work with any surface and offer a beautiful selection of colors.
And speaking of colors – the number of coats is all about color coverage. With the high-quality paints available today, a second coat is not needed for durability or reliability.
Second or third coats are needed only for the purpose of covering an old color with a new color. We help control the cost of your interior painting project by only using a second coat when necessary.
Once the painting is completed, furniture is moved back. Drop cloths or paper and plastic are removed and the only evidence that we were there is a beautifully painted interior.
Lastly, be gentle with your new paint job. Although dry almost immediately, paint cures and hardens for up to 30 days and is initially soft.
