To achieve that perfect smooth finish from our painting and decorating service, the preparation (prep) work we do is key. The prep work is vital in any building project whether you are doing a minor refresh to your home by adding a coat of paint, a house renovation or extension project or a completely new build project.
The foundation for high quality paint work is proper surface preparation. Surface preparation means cleaning all surfaces to be painted and applying the right primer undercoat. The prep work for interior and external housing painting are different.
House Painting Preparation
Your home is probably your biggest investment and financial commitment. This is why you do everything to preserve your home and maintain its value. Your home also contains your most valuable items. From appliances to pictures to furniture to carpets, all these items are valuable to you.
Our painting service is done with minimal disruption. This is why before we start the actual surface prep work, we cover all your personal effects with protective sheets which we provide. This includes your floors and furnishings.
When all your items are full protected, we start preparing all the surfaces for painting as follows:
Interior House Painting Preparation
Before painting the interior walls of your home, the walls have to be thoroughly cleaned to remove oil, grease and dirt so as not to compromise the appearance when painting is completed.
Where there are cracks, holes or damages to the wall, these have to be fixed or repaired as part of the prep work. As our painters are skilled and experienced, we ensure that every minor detail with respect to your painting prep work is covered. Our goal is to deliver that high-quality finish at all times.
Knowing the right products and tools for the prep work is also very important. Using the right primer on gyprock, right primer on metal, wood and aluminium surfaces ensures we deliver the best possible paint job for the interior of your house. This is one of the many reasons why you should only use the professional painters in Edgware – Edgware Painters and Decorators.
Exterior House Painting Preparation
While the interior of your homes gets a lot of attention, the exterior of your home is also very important. If you want to restore that kerb appeal with your house standing out in the neighbourhood, then it is important to have a professional painting job.
A professional exterior house painting job means having the right prep work on the exterior of your house before even applying the first coat of paint.
Painting not only improves the appearance of your home. It also protects the building as well. The exterior of your home is exposed to the harsh weather elements like scorching sun, heavy snow or rainfall, wind storms etc. So doing the correct prep work, using the right high quality paint and having the right skills and expertise for the job will guarantee the right outcome. The wrong paint applied by an inexperienced painter will be damaged over time.
Where there is peeling paint on your home, repainting will definitely restore the paint work on your home and provide the on-going protection against the elements.
A durable primer that withstands the weather elements is used for the prep work for exterior surfaces. For some surfaces removing the existing paint, sanding and repainting the damaged areas is necessary.
