Platinum Pro Painters – Calgary (http://www.PlatinumProPaintersCalgary.com), the leading painting and renovating company serving the Calgary, Okotoks, Airdrie, and Cochrane areas, is announcing its top interior painting tips and mistakes to avoid.
“While warmer, drier spring and summer weather are perfect for exterior painting projects, the autumn and winter are ideal when it comes to interior painting,” says Chris White, owner of Platinum Pro Painters – Calgary. “Exterior painting is, for safety reasons, limited to daylight hours. Interior painting, on the other hand, can be done at any hour. And secondly, the more humid it is outside, the longer it takes for paint to dry. In Calgary, the autumn and fall weather are the perfect conditions for interior paint to cure.”
White cautions that those thinking about tackling an interior painting project should consider the help of a professional painting company. While many may think interior painting is an easy project to handle, the fact of the matter is that there are a large number of factors that can make it quite complex. This means that making a few mistakes can end up costing the homeowners time, money, and patience.
In many cases, White explains, the majority of time is spent preparing the walls to be painted. A professional painting company will ensure the walls are as flat as possible and all holes are filled and sanded. A professional painting company like Platinum Pro Painters – Calgary will also make sure the walls are cleaned before any interior paint is applied, as any dust, dirt, or debris left on a wall could cause new paint to peel.
“A lot of painting companies don’t think it’s important to use primer, but the fact is that primer is essential for a clean finish. It not only seals the surface of the wall; it also provides a great base for the paint to grab,” he adds. “Not using primer can cause shiny spots on walls and places where repairs have had to be made.”
Choosing the wrong kind of paint for an interior painting project is a common mistake. White notes that a professional interior painting company also has the experience to know when and where to use flat paint and semi-gloss, how oil- and water-based paints interact, and the best strategies for covering up previously painted surfaces.
“Colour is obviously important; it sets the mood for a room and the entire house. Homeowners need to take into consideration how often they want to change the interior paint colours. If it’s every few years or so, go trendy, but if you want something to be timeless, the colour selection might be different,” White concludes. “In addition to thinking of paint as just colour on the wall, consider the home’s architectural features. The right interior paint colour can play up moulding, mantels, windows, doors, and wainscot and add additional depth.”
