The following describes our process for painting making final wall repairs and applying a final coat of paint. Every project is different but we’ve outlined a general guideline below to ensure your project will go smoothly.
We’ve created a material list, a step by step guide and a quiz to test your knowledge.

6. Rolling Walls
Please view our post on how to properly roll paint on a wall.
7. Apply Final Coat
Before final coat is applied it is important you follow the process of filling minor dings and pre-priming with top coat. Let the pre-prime coat skim over before applying your final coat so you avoid flashing. Final coat of paint is completed using the same process as the first coat. In 95% of cases we apply two coats and we do a final check-up of walls prior to our final coat of paint we fill minor dings less than a 1/4 inch in diameter. We wait until after our first coat is applied because these minor dings often times do not reveal themselves until after the first coat of paint.
