Project spotlight: interior painting in Fort Myers!

We recently completed an interior room in Fort Myers and were really happy with the way it turned out. In fact, a great interior repaint can feel a little bit like magic: you know your room to be one way, a day or two later–poof!--a brand new room. However, the best paint job always starts with preparation. It may take a little longer but it’s worth it to make sure the walls are ready to accept that beautiful new color you’ve chosen. Here’s how we do it.

Cleaning

No matter how careful you are, there’s always room for an *oops!* every now and then. Maybe a child touches the wall after eating chicken nuggets, a coffee cup drops to the floor, or a plate of tacos gets knocked from your hand by the dog. Cleaning the walls, especially of oils and stains, helps the paint to adhere properly and makes that sweet, watery blue paint glow.

Patching

You know that person in your family who opens the door and lets the door knob hit the wall? What about that other person who dives into the couch after soccer and shoves the sofa against the wall. Yep. This kind of wear and tear is normal for an active family, and we know just what to do. Patching the wall in the places you need it will ensure a smooth finish so there are no grooves and dings in the finished product.

Spot Priming

There is always a need to prime over the repaired areas, sealing the spackle or mud we used to cover your dents, scratches, and grooves. Without this, the repaired area could appear duller than the rest of the wall, standing out and causing an unsightly spot on your otherwise perfect wall.

High-quality Paints

After the cleaning, repair, and priming, it is imperative to use high-quality paints, like Sherman Wliiams, Benjamin Moore, or Farrow and Ball. According to Sherman WIlliams, high-quality paints “have more of the all-important prime pigments, which provide easier application, greater durability and better color retention.”

What’s the takeaway?

While we all want to see a room be painted quickly and efficiently, it doesn’t pay to cut corners in wall preparation. If you want to hear more about this process or get an estimate, call today. We are happy to help.
