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.

5. Cutting Straight lines

Please refer to our post on how to use a brush to paint straight lines around mill work and up to ceilings.

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.
